A to Z Challenge - M (and Award!)

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...


Musings of a Palindrome
Hannah is a beautiful person who’s full of enthusiasm and spirit. I called her Palin for the longest time, but now I always say Hannah because it’s a pretty name for a pretty gal. She shares my science fiction passion and on Tuesdays, she posts the coolest photos and pictures. Hannah does more than muse - visit her today!

Mithril Wisdom
Jamie is an amazing young man. Possessing a Masters in Egyptology, he also does reviews on his site and for other publications. He’s very involved in the book world and loves fantasy. Someone this talented is going to go far in life! Visit my buddy Jamie and tell him the Army is invading!

Jeffrey Beesler at World of the Scribe passed this award on to me. Thanks, dude – great timing!

And I am passing the Creative Blog Award along to:

Karen at Following the Whispers
Liz at 8-Bit Words



Have an awesome weekend, everyone! Any big plans? Movies? Writing? Ninja attacks?

It wouldn't be much of a ninja attack if we told you about it before hand.

Nice links, cheers.

Hi Alex

Love Laura x

Sarah McCabe said...

A Master's in Egyptology and a love for fantasy? Sounds like my kind of blog. *is somewhat intimidated but will definitely follow Mithril Wisdom*

Ricky said...

Great post as usual Alex.

Possibly a movie this weekend but no firm plans.

li said...

An elementary school play this weekend. There will be hundreds of miniature ninja attacks. Weapon of choice lately? Biological.The full force sneeze in the face just as you get to eye-level to help them with something.

Charmaine Clancy said...

Some new finds for me, thanks :)

Amanda Trought said...

Alex, thanks for the post, looking forward to checking out the blogs mentioned. Well done for the award, and have a great weekend!

Lauracea said...

I'm going for a Ninja attack, but it's secret so watch your back :)

I'd like to see a movie, so I'd better start going back in your posts to check out reviews.

Talli Roland said...

Two great Ms! No big plans for this weekend; reckon it'll be a quiet one!

~Sia McKye~ said...

I've read Hannah's blog. Nice one. Congrats on the award, yes sir, you're definitely creative.

Weekend plans, yard work, writing, and spending some time with part of my family.

Have a great weekend.

Justine Dell said...

I love meeting new bloggers!!!

No plans to take over the world for me. No cool ninja fights. Maybe I'll get some writing work done? Hopefully?

~JD

Matthew MacNish said...

Dang it! I know everyone today. I like it better when I meet new bloggers.

Sommer Leigh said...

Congrats on the award :-)

I think I'm going to do yard work this weekend. Infinitely less exciting than I'd like, but I finished Fallout 3 last night and I can no longer use it as an excuse not to clean up what winter did to my yard.

With any luck, there will be ninjas in my shed.

Stephen Tremp said...

We rented a bunch of movies. Going to see Rio on MOnday cause wifey has to work. Kids are going bonkers because they want to see it but they'll just have to wait.

baygirl32 said...

congrats yet again! and thanks for blog recommendations

Melissa Bradley said...

Congrats on the award. I love Hannah's and Jamie's blogs, they seriously rock. And I love being part of the Ninja Army. I've got a surprise birthday party this weekend for a friend and I'm hoping to go see Scream 4 or Hanna.

Nicki Elson said...

Hey! This time I know all the bloggers you mentioned. Huh, maybe I'm not such a blog slacker after all...

M.J. Fifield said...

I love both of the blogs you've mentioned today. They're really great.

My weekend plans currently include multiple viewings of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part One.

Have a great weekend!

Karen Walker said...

Alex, thanks so much for the award. It's a beautiful image. My big plans include singing today at an Alzheimer's Facility.
Blessings,
Karen

Bossy Betty said...

Thanks, Alex! I hopped. I followed. My life is the richer for it!

Bluestocking Mum said...

Yes, some good M's there - I hadn't discovered yet.

Plans for the weekend -
Footie match with my youngest, pile of ironing and I HAVE to work on my current MS. I'm spending too long reading all these wonderful blogs and enjoying this challenge!

have a good one Alex

warm wishes
Debbie

Sangu said...

Congratulations on the award, Alex and as always, thanks for the blogger links!

I have no big plans for the weekend, though I'm hoping to have a nice relaxing time. I've recently decided to try the whole 'no work on weekends' thing and I'm going to see if I can stick to it!

Laura Eno said...

Congrats on the award!
Ninja attacks - are we doing that for tomorrow, Alex?

K.C. Woolf said...

I have a ninja attack planned for later today, but I can't tell you more about it until it's done.

Thanks for the link to Mithril Wisdom! :-)

Ellie said...

Congrats on the award!

This weekend I'm planning to veg out on Saturday and then have a major writing session on Sunday.

Have a good one!

Ella said...

I so want to go the movies, if it doesn't happen. I have to go by the movie theater, next week ;-D The one I love to attend is 45min from my house, across the border into VA.

My husband wants to go to Bass Pro; this would equal me dragging him to a craft store. Sometime I go and take photos inside, but I want to do some writing or go to the movies.

Off to say "Hello" to the mentioned blogs.

What about you...Movie man? Any plans?

Josh Hoyt said...

Congrats on the award. Have a great weekend.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

li, that sounds deadly!!

Lauracea, I'll be watching. As for this weekend, Rio is getting good reviews.

Justine, hope you do!

Sommer, Fallout is addictive!

Stephen, I might not catch it until next week either.

Melissa, depends on what you're in the mood for - but I really liked Hanna.

Nicki, you never slack.

You're welcome, Karen!

Blue, the ironing does not sound like fun...

Sangu, you're an ambitious slacker - I like it!

Laura - shh.....

Ella, I am not a Bass Pro Shop kind of guy - I'd be bored as well. And might not see Rio until next week.

Thanks everyone!

Hope said...

congrats on the award and also to the ones receiving it from you!

have a wonderful weekend too!

Arlee Bird said...

Great blog choices to honor today. We're at the halfway point!

Congrats on the Award, Alex. And to Karen and Liz!

Have a great weekend.

Charles Gramlich said...

BTW, have you had trouble commenting on Ocean Girl's blog? I can't get it to let me post a comment.

Hart Johnson said...

Egyptology? Cool! I need to get over there more often. (and you know I love Hannah's blog!) Congrats on your award, too!

Nicole said...

Congratulations on your award. My weekend plans are pretty boring, as I have to work.

I still haven't been able to go check out Source Code due to my schedule and I'm a little sour about that, lol.

I just received an old 60s movie called "Salesman" recently and plan on watching that this weekend.

I also have to watch a documentary on the making of "Casserole Club" starring Kevin from The Backstreet Boys and then write a review of it.

Now with Scream 4 out, there are two movies that I have to go see at the theater...Scream 4 & The Source Code. Hopefully I can get around to it soon before the theaters stop playing them, like what happened with "Salt". I waited and waited and couldn't see it.....and to make matters worse, I had a free pass to see "Salt", so I wouldn't have even had to buy a ticket, but my schedule and limited transportation had me waiting a little too long.

Now, it's on my Netflix list, lol!

Monti said...

This weekend I'm trying to stay focused on the novel I'm writing set in the jungles of Central America. I'm on deadline and need to complete it by the end of Mar. It's hard when I also want to check out all these blogs.

A Beer for the Shower said...

I'm gonna spend my weekend drinking beer in my underwear, writing the next great American novel, and eating junk food...

Kinda like I do during the weekdays. I love unemployment.

GigglesandGuns said...

Writing and a three mile walk. Then watching Sunday's called for rain from the sun porch.

Milo, that sounds rough!

Will Burke said...

I've enjoyed Mithril Wisdom for awhile now -- great site!

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

Alex, are we done yet? This challenge is harder than I thought it would be and I'm not a big fan of the second half of the alphabet, not right now anyway.
Excuse my venting. I've made so many great connections - much thanks to you. It IS worth it. I think I can, I think I can.
Have a great weekend.
