A to Z Challenge - L - and I won!

For the A to Z Challenge, I am featuring some awesome bloggers. These individuals have offered so much support of my book, CassaStar, and me on my blogger journey. Of course, I’ll be keeping up with the world of movies, music, and pop culture stuff as well! Ninjas are just talented that way...


Life by Chocolate
Robyn has a twisted sense of humor! Her posts on celibacy and life in Paradise will have you in stitches. But beneath that tough, wry appearance is a wonderful woman full of compassion. Robyn highlights the absurd aspects of life. Give her visit. Oh, and bring chocolate!

L’Aussie Writing
Denise is just a wonderful person. She defines the word ‘involved.’ She’s supportive of her writer and author friends and passionate about helping those in need. One could not ask for a better cheerleader.

Lynda at W.I.P. It had a 500 Followers Giveaway Contest – and I won a $20 Amazon gift card! Or rather, gift email. Lynda, thanks and congratulations on the milestone!

Based on a review of Save the Cat Strikes Back at Helen Ginger’s site, I selected that book. The first one had some great tips in it, so I’m looking forward to reading the new one.

Now, if I can just apply those tips to my current manuscript…

Thanks, Alex - especially for telling them to bring chocolate. I'll forward the chocolate I don't want. We know that means you'll have to buy your own. Sorry.
I still think you're the best!

My goodness Alex,
How the 'L' are you? Yes, you may recall I have graced your fascinating and interactive site, before.
Anyway, delighted to see another posting from your good self in the 'A to Z Blogging Challenge!, complete with an exclamation mark for dramatic impact!
Now then, I'm very aware of the two bloggers that you note on your 'L' posting and they are very good.
I wish to thank you for giving me the inspiration to post up a couple of alternative satire blogs to your 'challenge'. Even your buddy 'Arlee Bird' noted my posting on my shy and unassuming blog. Also, before I go, yes, I'm about to go, I wanted to thank you for being the 200th 'follower' on my blog. By the way, I hate the usage of the word, 'follower'. Maybe sometime, you might like to stop long enough at my site and have a read. Thanks friend and may you continue to embrace the magic that is the written word.
With respect and kind wishes, Gary :)

Rusty Webb said...

$20 gift card! Now that has to be a good day. Congrats.

Andrew Green said...

Congrats!
It's amazing what Blogger can do, isn't it?

Lynda R Young said...

Yay! Thanks so much for the shout out and I hope you enjoy the new book. :)

I've had that follower problem lately too. I've found if I close my browser and open it up again, it seems to fresh everything properly...sometimes.

Leovi said...

Super sweet and very interesting posts by Robyn in her delightful Life by Chocolate. Greetings.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Gary, I'm #200! Cool. Yeah, I hope to catch up this weekend. Really behind with blogs and I hate that.

Lynda, sometimes is the key. I got it to come up long enough to follow most of them back.
