Ninja News, Book Announcements, November Movie Preview, and I’m in Southern Writers Magazine!!!

Ninja News

I’ve been sitting on this news for a while, but I was interviewed by Sylvia Ney for Southern Writers Magazine - and the November issue came out yesterday!! My first major magazine. Whoa. Nope, never planned ANY of this when I started writing. Thank you again, Sylvia! If you’re interested, you can check it out HERE.

Cherie Reich has two books available now – her novella Nightmare Ever After and a short story in Spells: Ten Tales of Magic. That book also features a story from Jeff Hargett. Congratulations, both of you!

Susan Oloier’s new book is now out – Outcast. Congratulations, Susan!

Don't forget next Wednesday is the next posting of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group!

L. Blankenship has a new book available today – Disciple: Part I!

The saints favor her, else-wise a peasant girl like Kate Carpenter would never be apprenticed to the kingdom’s master healer. But her patron saint also marks her ready for the duty of tending to a mission that must cross the ice-bound mountains…

Find the book here: Official Blog, Amazon Kindle, Amazon Paperback, Kobo, and Goodreads.

Congratulations, L. Blankenship!

Laura Diamond has a new book out – New Pride!

“NEW PRIDE was born from my upcoming novel, SHIFTING PRIDE (coming December 7, 2012!). In SHIFTING PRIDE, the main character, Nickie, searches for her missing father, Richard…and NEW PRIDE is all about Richard’s journey to independence and new love.”

A shape-shifter without a pride, Richard Leone strikes a tenuous friendship with power hungry, Derek, from an unstable, rogue group…

Find Laura: Blog, Website, Twitter, Facebook, and Amazon.

Congratulations, Laura!


And for those of you still wondering about the big event that will take place December 10-12 – trust me, it’s like nothing you’ve seen before. Be watching November 19 for the announcement. 


 November Movie Releases

Here are the upcoming movies for November! I’ve thrown in a few DVD releases as well. As always, descriptions courtesy of the IMDB. Snarky comments by me.

6 - DVD - Arthur Christmas – Fun and cute.

9 -

Skyfall
Bond's loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.
Director: Sam Mendes
Stars: Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, Naomie Harris, Judi Dench
It’s already shattered records in the UK – this is a MUST see!

Lincoln
As the Civil War continues to rage, America's president struggles with continuing carnage on the battlefield and as he fights with many inside his own cabinet on the decision to emancipate the slaves.
Director: Steven Spielberg
Stars: Daniel Day-Lewis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tommy Lee Jones, John Hawkes
Every month has a Gordon-Levitt movie – he’s one hard working dude!

DVD - The Amazing Spiderman – a MUST purchase on Bluray 3D!

13 - DVD – Brave – Looking forward to finally seeing this one.

20 - DVD - The Expendables II – Stupid fun and I have to see just how stupid!

23 -

Life of Pi
The story of an Indian boy named Pi, a zookeeper's son who finds himself in the company of a hyena, zebra, orangutan, and a Bengal tiger after a shipwreck sets them adrift in the Pacific Ocean.
Director: Ang Lee
Stars: Suraj Sharma, Irrfan Khan, Adil Hussain, Tabu
I’ve never read the book, but it explores spirituality in way that can be appreciated by any faith. Coupled with the amazing visuals in the trailer, that’s all I need to know! Another must-see.

30 -

Killing Them Softly
Jackie Cogan is a professional enforcer who investigates a heist that went down during a mob-protected poker game.
Director: Andrew Dominik
Stars: Brad Pitt, Ray Liotta, Richard Jenkins, Scoot McNairy
A good cast. Will wait for reviews…


Excited about the new releases? Still wondering about December 10-12? As surprised as I am about Southern Writers Magazine? And what movies are you looking forward to this month?

Congrats on the magazine interview! That's great news! I want to see Lincoln. Have a great weekend!

Maurice Mitchell said...

Congrats on your first, of many no doubt, magazine interviews Alex. New Pride reminds me of Cat People on a good way. Skyfall had a long road, so I hope it breaks records.

Old Kitty said...

Yay for your magazine feature!! How brilliant is that!??!?!

I am so revved up to see Skyfall next Monday I'm near enough wetting myself. Ahem.

Take care

Melissa said...

Congratulations, Alex! :D

Summer Ross said...

Congratulations on the Magazine, Alex! Woot for you.

I wont be watching many movies this month, though I might get away with one this weekend- Lincoln the vampire hunter. My manly man just got it on DVD for us to watch together- while I'm busy not being an adult because I've been good all week long. :)

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

Congratulations on the magazine interview!

I didn't know Spielberg directed Lincoln. It's probably worth seeing.

xoRobyn

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Brinda, I know!!!

Cindy, don't want anyone to miss next Wednesday.

Sheri, thanks!

Michelle, that would be cool. But if it's a cameo and I'm a Ninja, would you even know it's me?

Maurice, hopefully no one's arm is ripped off...

Kitty, a couple more days!

Thanks, everyone!!!!

L.G.Smith said...

I'm SO looking forward to seeing the Abraham Lincoln movie. It's freaky how much Daniel Day Lewis looks like Lincoln. Hope it's a good one.

Melissa Bradley said...

Congratulations on Southern Writers! How awesome for you. :) Can't wait for the Big Announcement, either. Have my calendar marked.

Looking forward to Skyfall and Lincoln, but I may have to wait since December is right around the corner and all of my definite must sees are being released then.

Heather Murphy said...

Congratulations to you and Sylvia!
I can't wait to see Life of Pi

Tasha Seegmiller said...

There are several I want to see, but I will see Bond for sure.

cleemckenzie said...

Yay Alex! Great news re: Southern Writers Mag.

Congrats to Susan on her book. Love the title.

Life of Pi is an amazing story. I see they have a new cover for it.

Sylvia Ney said...

Congratulations again and thanks for the link!

M.J. Fifield said...

BOND! I want to watch Skyfall repeatedly. I just hope my dayjob will give me the opportunity to do that.

Looks like some interesting books coming out!
Congratulations on the magazine! I'm totally going to check it out. :)

LG, it is uncanny.

Melissa, like The Hobbit?

Sylvia, thank YOU!!!!

MJ, call in dead.

Julie, you can download the digital copy.

Thank you, everybody!

Liz Fichera said...

Very cool about the magazine interview!

I am excited for SKYFALL, LINCOLN, and LIFE OF PI. Have a feeling there will be lots of movie watching over the holidays, not to mention all of my holiday faves which I am happy to watch over and over.

Karen Walker said...

Alex, that is such wonderful news about you being in the magazine. Congratulations and may that be the first of many more to come.

Robyn Campbell said...

Wow sweet, Alex! A hearty handshake and super congrads on the interview.

I cannot wait to see Lincoln. It sounds like it will be bodacious.

Congrads Susan, L., and Laura. Yippee for their books. I need some new reads too.

Happy weekend Alex!

Hildie McQueen said...

Wow congrats on the interview, can I have your kindlegraph! LOL

I want to see the new 007, not sure about the rest. The book Life of Pi bored me.

Bob Milne said...

Congrats on the magazine!

As for the movies, Craig is definitely not my favourite Bond, but I'll still see Skyfall anyway.

Gwen Gardner said...

Hey Alex, congrats on being featured in Southern Writer's Magazine. I'll head over to check it out.

Congrats to Cherie, Jeff, Susan, L. Blankenship and Laura!

I'll have to check out Life of Pi - always looking for something inspirational:0)

Thanks for all the news!

Ray Rousell said...

Looking forward to Skyfall, hopefully seeing it next week.

Cate Masters said...

Congrats on the interview!
Kudos and congrats to all the new releases as well.
Hubby's a huge Bond fan, and looking forward to Skyfall. It will be interesting to see how they film Life of Pi - the book's surprise ending made it a challenge I'm sure. No spoilers from me! :)

Cherie Reich said...

Congrats about the interview in Souther Writers Magazine! That's awesome!

Thank you for mentioning my newest releases! And I can't wait to see Skyfall.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Liz, there's some quality movies this month.

Karen, that would be cool!

Hilde, if I knew how, you could have it!

Ray, I have to wait until next Friday....

Cherie, you're welcome!

Thanks, guys! That magazine interview is just too cool.

Teresa Coltrin@Journaling Woman said...

Congratulations on the interview. I'm excited to read it.

The next thing you'll tell us is a movie is in the works.

Suze said...

Ah! Look at you on Southern Writers! I love it, Al. I love that this has all snowballed into something beyond your expectations. It makes me happy. :)

Tyrean Martinson said...

Congrats on your interview! That's awesome! Excited for all the new releases in books, and Skyfall, plus Wreck It Ralph (a family movie).

Linda Jackson said...

Thanks, Alex. I've got to check out some of those new releases. And I enjoyed the interview in Southern Writers.

Nate Wilson said...

I look forward to any movie with Daniel Day-Lewis or Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Also need to catch Skyfall and Brave (and I'm sure I'll see Life of Pi; my wife loved the book).

And of course, congrats on the major magazine interview! One of these days, you may have to stop being surprised by all these accolades...

Carol Kilgore said...

Congrats on the interview!

And to Susan and Laura on their releases.

Cannot wait to see SKYFALL!

lbdiamond said...

Congrats on the interview, Alex!

Totally wanna see Skyfall.

Thanks for the shout out!!! :)

Elizabeth Seckman said...

You know, I'm just going to love telling people I knew you when...hey I'm NOT above name dropping.

Morgan said...

Is that you on the cover, Alex??? Ow, ow! I bet you photoshopped the name "Steven James" just to protect your identity.

LOL.

But really, that's too awesome. And a big deal! Stoked for you!

Jess said...

OH MY GOSH, CONGRATS ON THE INTERVIEW!! That's so awesome!

I read the book the Life of Pi, and it's SO good. A must read, for sure! Can't wait till it comes out :)

[Retro-Z] said...

COOLEST NEWS, CAPTAIN!! that is it, you are big time and we and me are honored you are in our world.

I just got word about the HOBBIT scores... outside of SKYFALL, I am spent for films.

Have a GRAND DAY!

Andrew Leon said...

How did you miss Brave?
Does not compute...

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Teresa, I wish!

Suze, I want you happy! And it's beyond anything I ever imagined.

Tyrean, I forget to include Wreck it Ralph and the movie's getting good reviews.

Nate, doubt that will ever happen.

Laura, you're welcome!

Elizabeth, it may not carry much weight, but feel free to drop my name.

Thanks Morgan, but it's not me!

Thanks, Jess. And I'm looking forward to the movie.

Thanks, Jeremy. And you have some inside scoop on the Hobbit music, huh?

Andrew, reviews just didn't entice me...

Tara Tyler said...

i'm less than 100 today! getting better!

yeah for those releases & your swanky interview! saw sylvia's post re it
and i won a couple of susan's books! woot!

i want to see brave too! movies seem to come & go so quick! is looper still in theaters?!

Joylene Nowell Butler said...

I'm following your career with great anticipation, Alex. Congrats on the magazine article. And thanks for sharing all these new books. Yes, Lincoln, the movie looks good.

Nancy Thompson said...

Congrats to everyone on their book releases! And to you, as well, Alex, for being recognized in your first magazine article! Don't suppose they're including a photo, huh? So many movies. That last one looks pretty good though I've never heard if it. My friend will likely drag me to the last Twilight flick as its become a tradition for us to take the neighborhood girls. I read Life of Pi a long time ago. It was okay. Didn't like it enough to want to see the movie.

Jai Joshi said...

There's some great movies coming out this month! Looking forward to seeing all of them.

Congrats on the Southern Writers magazine interview!

Jai

Liesel K Hill said...

Awesome stuff, Alex! Congrats on the magazine interview! Excited for Skyfall and can't WAIT for Lincoln! Happy Friday! :D

Sheena-kay Graham said...

All the November releases look super interesting. Congrats on mag interview Alex and thanks for responding to my post request.

TS Hendrik said...

Congratulations on the magazine interview. That's really cool.

I read Life of Pi. Mostly I found it really boring. And the ending... blech. I'll pass on the movie.

Arlee Bird said...

Congratulations on the magazine coverage. Sounds like an interesting collection of movies coming up. I always like the Bond films and the Lincoln film might be interesting.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Tara, congratulations on winning the books!

Joylene, don't hold your breath!

Sorry Nancy, no photo.

Thanks, Ella! The name is getting longer...

Sheena-kay, I'll work you in somehow.

Happy weekend!

Christine Rains said...

Congratulations on the interview! That's fantastic. Cherie's books are awesome! My husband is very excited for the new James Bond. This month, no time for movies for me. Have a good weekend!

Michael Offutt, Tebow Cult Initiate said...

Congratulations on the interview, Alex! I can't wait for Bond to show up in our theater :)

[Retro-Z] said...

capt, they are releasing two editions that have same stuff, just one has more extended tracks... i can share that much... though both have different tracks, so of course you will have to get both... and... and this is the first of three... then the full extended will follow.

as part of the score site, i am hoping to receive both versions soon... i am thrilled...

Donna Shields said...

I'm so excited for you about the magazine article. No surprise..you are awesome!

I can't wait to see what's up with Dec 10-12. Knowing you, it's something incredibly special.

Matthew MacNish said...

You've always got so many things! I never know which one to comment on.

I'm hoping to talk mom into letting me take the kids to Life of Pi.

M Pax said...

Neat on the interview, Alex. congrats. I'm looking forward to seeing skyfall.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

SC, you are excited, I can tell!

Jeremy, different tracks? That is sheer trickery!

Donna, I hope people think it's special.

Matthew, sorry for the overload.

Thanks, guys! We did the interview last spring, so I've been waiting...

Spacerguy said...

The new James Bond Skyfall looks exciting, must spread the word. Congratulations on the interview dude but then you're the man, our leader, our super ninja captain!

Mina Burrows said...

Congrats on the article. I'm not surprised at all. What's it feel like to be a celeb?

randi lee said...

That's so super awesome, Alex! Congratulations! Nice to know a star reads my blog :D

Scribbles From Jenn said...

Congratulations on the interview! You truly are THE Ninja warrior.

Elise Fallson said...

So awesome about the interview! You deserve the recognition. (:
Killing them Softly sounds really interesting, I like the cast, we'll see how it turns out....

Carrie-Anne said...

Congratulations on your interview!

I'd love to check out the new Lincoln movie. I've been a bit of a Lincoln buff since I was about eight years old. It's waxed and waned over the years, but I'm always interested in a good book or film about President Lincoln, the Civil War, and the Lincoln family.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Thanks, Spacerguy!

Mina - WEIRD.

Randi, I'm one of those tiny dwarf stars.

Thanks, Jenn!

Elise, thanks and I'll wait for reviews on that one.

Carrie-Anne, I think it will be a good movie.

Nicki Elson said...

The Life of Pi looks awesome!! Okay, November 19 to find out more about this intriguing blogfest...

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

I'm hopping over to read the interview. I found the book, Life Of Pi, extremely boring. It's a must read in lots of high school literature courses.
Looking forward to a few of those movies.

farawayeyes said...

Congrats! Now can we call you 'Celebrity Ninja'?

A lot of good books available. I'll have to live to be 103 to polish off my TBR list.

Some interesting looking movies also.

Cloud Atlas this weekend.

Kelly Polark said...

Congrats on the interview!!!

And I 'll watch Spiderman again just because my fave, C. Thomas Howell has a small part in it. :)

Leovi said...

Congratulations on this important interview in Southern Writers Magazine. I wish you all the best.

Peaches Ledwidge said...

Congratulations.

Cathy Keaton said...

I've been meaning to watch Brave for a long time, but just haven't gotten around to it. Also wondering how good The Amazing Spider-Man actually is, since I doubt it could be as good as the Spider-Man movie from 2002.

Siv Ottem said...

Congrats on the magazine article, can't wait to check it out. Thanks for reminding me about IWSG, don't want to miss one and I have been so busy lately, thank god you are my regular read for the day and always there for all the important news. Hope you have a great week-end!

Sandra Evertson said...

Great blog! Life of PI looks to be amazing!
Sandra

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Nicki, you will be surprised...

Susan, hope the movie isn't boring.

Faraway, the name just keeps getting longer...

Thanks, Leovi!

Cathy - it's better!!!

Siv, thank you - appreciate that.

George Beremov [Nebular] said...

Alex, congrats, that is great news! You should be proud of yourself.

I still have a lot of October releases to catch up to, but November looks even more exciting. Being a huge Ang Lee fan, Life of Pi is at the top of my list.

Helena said...

How exciting! Your first major magazine coverage -- now that's really an accomplishment and something to celebrate.

You'll enjoy Brave -- and watch the girl's hair, 'cause it's practically a separate character, it's so visually alive.

Sherry Ellis said...

Congratulations on the magazine article. That's awesome!

I'll have to get Arthur's
Christmas. The kids would probably enjoy that one.

Shannon Lawrence said...

Congratulations on the magazine interview; what a milestone!

Livia said...

Congrats on the interview! You TOTALLY deserved it!

I'm still wondering about that blogfest! My only guess right now for the theme of that blogfest is we celebrate the good ole' times in the blogosphere.

I absolutely want to see Skyfall. I probably will see it next weekend. Then I also wanna see Lincoln and Life of Pi. Those films look epic and Oscar worthy! :)

Jeff Hargett said...

Congratulations to Cherie, Susan, L. Blankenship, Laura and to you as well, Alex! So much good news going around lately. It's exciting!

D.G. Hudson said...

Congrats on the mag interview! I follow her blog, too. When you're in demand, take advantage of it.

Curious about the Nov. 19th announcement, I am.

The Golden Eagle said...

Congratulations on the interview!

I started reading Life of Pi but never finished it. The movie looks interesting--I'll have to get around to completing the book first, though.

jamieayres.com said...

Congrats on the magazine cover! Can I buy at Books-A-Million in Florida??

Empty Nest Insider said...

Congrats on your magazine interview Alex! I am so excited for you! And congrats to everyone with book releases! As for movies, I'm looking forward to seeing Daniel Day- Lewis as Lincoln. Julie

Tonja said...

Congratulations, Alex! That's awesome!

Julia King said...

How exciting for you to have an interview in the magazine. *claps* Congrats, Alex!

mshatch said...

Definitely going to see Skyfall and I'd like to see Life of Pi as well since I read the book and really liked it not to mention the trailer looks utterly awesome.

L.G. Keltner said...

Congratulations on the magazine interview! That's exciting!

Amity said...

Congrats ALEX!

You rock!!!

Michael Malone said...

DDL looks amazing in that pic. Congrats on the interview.

Skyfall. That is all.

Anna Smith said...

Dude that's awesome gratz.
Those book covers look awesome.
Can't wait to see Expendables 2, I loved the first one - so much fun! :)

Candilynn Fite said...

Congrats on the interview...wow!

Susan Roebuck said...

When you've been interviewed for a magazine, you know you're IN! Congratulations.
Oooh - a major blog hop? I'm going to enter....

VikLit said...

Congrats on the interview!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Thanks George! And I've missed your reviews.

Helena, I will watch.

Sherry, it's really cute.

Livia, thanks, and you'll find out soon enough.

DG, how??

James, no idea! You can look, and if not, it can be purchased from their site.

MsHatch, the trailer is incredible.

Michael, he really fits as Lincoln.

Susan, I'm in?

Thanks everyone!

Jo said...

Congratulations on the Southern Writers appearance Alex.

Lotsa new movies coming out, I wait to see them on DVD

Juliana Haygert said...

Congrats on the magazine interview, Alex!

Stephen Tremp said...

I would think Life of Pi would be about who is the last one not eaten by the others. Brave was fun. Not as good as other CG films but it didn't need to be. I gave it a solid B. We'll buy it on DVD.

Mary Aalgaard said...

I haven't read Life of Pi, either. Would like to, though, before I see the movie. Congrats on the magazine article!! Not at all surprised. You are a rising star.

Dafeenah said...

Hi Capn Ninja! Congratulations on the feature. Looks like I picked a great day to try getting back on track with things. Take care. I look forward to reading everyone's blogs again.

Lisa Regan said...

Woo hoo! Congrats on the magazine interview!!!! The new releases look great, congrats to the authors!

Leovi said...

I hope this new movie of Steven Spielberg with expectation

Kimberly Gabriel said...

Congrats on the magazine interview! Not surprised, but very cool. Still wanting to see Argo. Have a great weekend Alex!

Annalisa Crawford said...

Fantastic news about the interview! Hubby and kids saw Skyfall yesterday - I'm not a fan of James Bond, so I went to work :-) They enjoyed it.

DMS said...

The magazine interview sounds exciting. Congrats! Loooks like there are a lot of wonderful new books out there in the reading world. As for movies- I can't wait to see Lincoln.

~Jess

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Stephen, there is some eating of animals involved.

Dafeenah, thanks and good to have you back!

Annalisa, that's good to know.

Thanks everybody!

Eve said...

Hey Alex!! Major Congrats on the interview! That's fantastic..As far as the movies go, I'd like to see Lincoln and Life of Pi...I have the book on my reading list, I'd like to read it before I see the movie, but the movie looks soooo good. Hey, so, are you telling me that I didn't miss the IWSG posting? It's NEXT Wednesday? That's good news if it be so! Congrats again on all your success!

Eve said...

lol! Nevermind! I'm dumb, or confused...I had it in my head that the IWSG was the first of the month...it's the first WEDNESDAY right? So I really didn't miss it..I feel like Scrooge on Christmas morning, lol!

DWei said...

My girlfriend has been hinting that she wants to go see the new James Bond movie. I'll make an effort when she has some time.

Jack said...

Aw, Brave. I've not laughed so hard in an animated movie since Tangled. I'm considering buying it when it comes out.

This is my third time seeing New Pride. I'm going to have to check it out. Sounds intriguing and I love the cover.

Jack said...

P.S.

CONGRATULATIONS!

Jess * Jessie * Jessy said...

It was a great interview too. I really enjoyed reading it and getting to know you better! Hope it brings you lots of new fans.

Chuck said...

Skyfall, Lincoln, Expendables II, and Killing will all be on my list to see.

Medeia Sharif said...

Congrats on the interview and thanks for all the awesome book news. I'll have to check out some of these titles.

Ink in the Book said...

A magazine article? Wow! Congrats to you on that one!

Looking forward to ISWG this month.

Can't wait to read Disciple II.

Can't wait to see Brave, either. I missed it in the theater.

And finally, I am so curious about the Nov. 19 announcement.

Hope your weekend is is awesome. I've been busy with the workshop on my blog, NaNo, plus another WIP I've been working on...

ediFanoB said...

A magazine interview? AWESOME!!
Congratulations, Alex.

What will be next?

Thereis only one movie left which I want to see in 2012: THE HOBBIT

I read the praisals for Skyfall but I'm no fan of James Bond movies.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Thanks, Eve! First Wednesday - you didn't miss it.

DWei, keep her happy.

Jack, I look forward to watching it then. And thanks!

Jess, you got the magazine? Wow! Thanks.

Ink, I noticed you had a lot of projects going on at your blog. November 19 is just two weeks away.

Edi, a movie would be great! Thanks.

Sean McLachlan said...

Back from Iraq and back in the comments section! Congratulations on getting into Southern Writers. That's a great magazine.
Please keep us informed of new blogfests. I haven't done one in a while and since I won't be on the road for at least a month I actually have the time now!

rebeccabradleycrime.com said...

Huge congratulations on the magazine article Alex! Go You! That is definitely classed as big news :)

I've yet to see Skyfall, but have heard nothing but great things about it and will hopefully get to see it before it leaves the cinemas as I'm sure it won't compare by the time it gets to the smaller screen.

Milo James Fowler said...

Way to go on the interview, dude! I'm looking forward to the new Bond -- it's gotta be better than the second one. Have you heard Adele's "Skyfall"? Awesome stuff.

She Writes said...

I have tried to read Life of Pi at least four times. Just couldn't get into it. Movie? Hmmm? Maybe :)?

Leovi said...

Javier Bardem say is the best of the bad of the series 007.

Cold As Heaven said...

I haven't seen the new Bond movie yet, but recently, I've re-seen some of the old ones on TV. Still entertaining. Kind of a genre of its own.

Congrats with the Southern Writer's Magazine >:)

Cold As Heaven

N. R. Williams said...

Hi Alex
For some reason I thought your blogging day was Sunday. My bad.

The Lincoln movie and Pi look good to me. Congratulations on your interview. A mystery magazine too. It appears they are expanding into SciFi. Way to go.
Nancy

Lynda R Young said...

Oh wow congrats to you Alex on hitting the big times :) Just like God to far exceed our imagination.

Sean, I'm co-hosting one on November 16 and there's another BIG one being announced on November 19.

Thanks, Rebecca.

Milo, no I haven't.

She Writes, never read it, but the movie looks good.

Thanks, Cold.

Thanks, Nancy. I guess it was just because I live in the south.

Thanks, Lynda!

Wanda, Amen!!!

Congratulations, Alex. I'm very happy for you. I will check that article out.
I am a huge Bond fan, so the whole family is looking forward to this one. The buzz has been great, so I hope it is. Lincoln looks good, too.

Hi Alex,

Aha, my human friend, 'apawlogies' for my delay in commenting. Have just finally calmed down from the latest blast of fireworks that silly people have been setting off in the streets.
Huge congrats on getting interviewed in that magazine and I shall check it out. Wonder if you made centrefold. Not that kind of magazine! Okay....
Thanks for all the other links and well done to all those who have out new books. My human, Gary, has been lined up to take over as James Bond in an upcoming movie.

Take care, must go now.

Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar!

Congrat's on the Southern Writers interview!

I hope you'll stop by and pick up your Super Sweet Blog Award. I know this month we are all busy with NANO, but one question we all want to know the answer to is -- If you had a sweet nickname, what would it be?
Good luck with NANO!

Congratulations on the magazine interview, that's so cool! I'll make sure to check it out.

I'm not a huge Bond fan, but my husband is, so I'm sure he'll be happy to know about the movie.

I was waiting for Perks of Being a Wallflower, but--sadly--it didn't come out in a single theater in my area. SO bummed. So I guess I have to wait for the dvd.

Anyway, congrats again!! And I can't wait to see the upcoming blogfest you have in store for everyone. I'm sure it will be awesome. :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

James, thanks, and they both look good.

That's right, Penny - Superstar! Sorry about all the fireworks. And if I was the centerfold, no one would buy it.

Thank you, Yolanda!

Tamara, I'm sorry!
