A to Z Challenge - W - and special thanks!

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...


Welcome to my World of Poetry
Yvonne is an incredibly special lady. She always takes the time to visit all of her online friends. If Yvonne doesn’t leave a comment, I send out the Ninja Posse! She’s like mom, watching over all of us. Her ability to write a poem on any subject just amazes me. She’s been a dear friend since last year’s Challenge, one of the incredible benefits of getting to know one's fellow bloggers. So, slide on over to Yvonne’s world now!

Wistful Nebulae
MPax is a fellow science fiction writer and she’s super creative. She’ll dazzle you with her pictures and trips to the museum. She’s all about the science, books, blogfests, and more. And she’s really smart! Check out my cool fellow FFW.

Special thanks:

To Univarn at A Life in Equinox - he celebrated his 900th post yesterday by asking a few of his followers to recommend one film that every moviegoer has to see in his or her lifetime. I made a recommendation, as did many of his awesome followers, and it's quite an amazing collection of films. Read about it at A Life in Equinox

And the biggest thanks to everyone who voted for my book's trailer! It was leading until Sunday, but I don't think it won. But I appreciate everyone who voted, sent Twitter and Facebook messages, blogged about it... It was a group effort by my Army of awesome Ninjas!

Guess it's time I polished that sequel, huh?

Yvonne is one of the great blog friends for whom I am especially thankful. I don't know how she comments on so many blogs and still has time for all that she does.

Cheeseboy said...

I love how you refer to your followers as Ninjas. Makes me feel so much cooler than I am.

BTW, you have officially lapped me by 100 with 734. I suppose I should have a2z'd it up.

Talli Roland said...

Yay for Yvonne! :)

And yes, please! Get that sequel out, already!

Melissa Bradley said...

Your Ninja Army rocks! Thanks to you I have gotten to know MPax and many, many other amazing friends.

GigglesandGuns said...

I'm falling behind in my army assignments. I may have to bite the big one and join those freaky little blue birds.

Looking for the sequel -- no pressure, but I'm not getting any younger.

Univarn said...

Hey Alex, thanks for the mention - and especially for particpating! Was good that I got the feedback I got as I was worried I'd come up with a dud on response seeing as I sent out the email so late.

Looking forward to the upcoming sequel. If there are no ninja fighter pilots in this one, I will file a formal protest.

SharleneT said...

If you're not doing anything between the hours of three and four in the morning, you should get crackin' on that sequel... what else is there to do? Huh?
