CassaStorm Launch and Controversy! Plus Sleepy Hollow, Dr. Who Marriages, Cassa Updates, Ninja News

My final stop this week ends with a bang. I’m invading Tossing It Out, run by one awesome Arlee Bird, founder of the A to Z Challenge. Lee is one of my very first friends I made here online, back when I had less than twenty-five followers. He’s a rock of stability, which is ironic since he likes to toss out interesting and sometimes controversial things on his blog. Which is why this week ends with a bang – in keeping with the spirit of his site, my guest post is on morality in writing. Visit Lee to see what I have to say about it! Lee – thanks and you are The Man!

And CassaStorm’s release week kicks off with prizes every day! Comment between September 16 and 20 to enter. (Ends 6:00 pm EST Sunday, September 22.)
Prizes include:
Cassa mousepad
Cassa Universe poster
Cassa magnet
Cassa mug
Autographed copy of CassaStorm
One person will be randomly selected each day and the five names will be drawn from a hat – first person gets first choice and so on.

Others are announcing CassaStorm’s release, and almost every post features a unique interview question. List of participants on the CassaStorm Page and all links have been updated. So join the fun!

Special posts 

So many! It’s been an incredible week. CassaStorm is in the top 100 of Space Opera now! A million thanks. Here are the highlights from the past few days:

I was the featured author in Elizabeth Craig’s Writer’s Knowledge Base Newsletter! You can view it on their siteHERE

Bryan and Brandon at A Beer For The Shower made an attempt to write science fiction following the ship CassaBeer. You have to read it to find out what happens next!

Roland Yeomans gave his most amazing tribute yet – and I smashed a guitar!

Retro Jeremy created a really cool animation. You the man, Jeremy!

Pat Hatt created a video that announced CassaStorm’s release to the world and it’s done in true Pat and Cat fashion. (And for the record, I don’t sing that bad.)

Robyn Engel at Life by Chocolate has always been fascinated with Byron and she wondered what his personal ad would look like…

Cassie Mae let you know what you should be prepared for if I listened to her notes. (She’s my critique partner.) It involves curves and fourty…

And finally, Samantha Geary honored me with a plug on her Audiomachine’s Tree of Life post.

Ninja News

A.J. Walker is seeking feedback on his cover and synopsis – visit his site to help him!

Charity Bradford just released Stellar Cloud, a short story anthology tied in with her book, The Magic Wakes. Get it now!!

According to Blastr, 50 couples will get married in celebration of Dr. Who's 50th anniversary

Peaches Ledwidge released a prequel to her first book this week - Day Laughs, Night Cries: A Woman Tonight.

Jessica Bell announced that The Six Senses in a Nutshell is going to be available by the end of October at the latest.

Literary Rambles announced: “Thurber House is now accepting applications for the 2014 Thurber House Children's Writer-In-Residence, a four week paid residency at Thurber House for a published author of books for middle grade and/or young adult.” See their site for details.

Sleepy Hollow Series Review

The premier was Monday. I was excited to see Clancy Brown. And then sad to see him die so early…
It’s a cool concept, weaving in the occult with the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. (Certainly not Scripturally sound, but just roll with it.) So far it’s a fun show with a good mix and humor and suspense. I look forward to next Monday’s episode. (And if the football game sucks, it will be a welcome alternative.)

Dedication

I wanted to share my dedication in CassaStorm with everyone:

To the readers and the dreamers
and the friends I’ve made along the way.
Byron’s journey would never have come this far
without your support and encouragement!

And it wouldn’t have. This week has been incredible. CassaStorm hit the top one hundred for Space Opera on Amazon. There were so many posts announcing its release and so many encouraging comments. Thanks, everyone. I can’t begin to tell you how humbled and grateful I am. I am truly blessed.

Ready for some controversy? Did you catch those amazing posts? Excited about the news? Catch Sleepy Hollow? Any feedback on the tour? Really like to know what went right…

Be sure to visit Lee at Tossing It Out!

I guess getting up at 4:45 am to take Anna Li to swim practice is worth it. I'm first.

Congrats on being in the top 100!. And thanks for the shout out about our Literary Rambles post!

YVONNE LEWIS: said...

Great post at Lee's Tossing It Out, just returned from there.
Hope all is going to plan with your new book.
Have an easy week-end.
Yvonne.

Anne said...

Congratulations on being in the top 100 already. It's been a whirlwind week for you Alex so enjoy a relaxing weekend!

Donna Hosie said...

Congrats on your release, Alex. I wish you much luck.

Siv Ottem said...

TOP 100 CONGRATS! That did not take long, no surprise :)You have a huge fan base, me included. I did catch Sleepy Hollow through Streaming (Not fortunate enough to get new American shows here without streaming them. I liked the show a lot and look forward to the next episode. Hopefully they will be able to keep the storyline going for more than one season.

M.L. Swift said...

CassaStorm is really moving up quick! So glad for you, Alex. And I'm heading over to Arlee's to catch your post on morality.

I taped Sleepy Hollow and then the dvr messed up. Been without TV in the living room and will have to get the dvr replaced, losing that episode! ARGH!

Heading over.....

M.L. Swift, Writer

JL Stratton said...

Love your covers for the Cassa series, and the stories are solid.

I watched the first episode of Sleepy Hollow and enjoyed it. That's more than I can say for Lost Girl. For that show, I just thought the writers stole my idea.

Annalisa Crawford said...

Congratulations on an awesome week of blog posts and mentions.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Natalie, that hour sucks, doesn't it? Thanks and you're welcome!

Siv, that will be the key - can they stretch it out over the season?

Mike, you'll have to catch it somewhere. Sorry about that.

Thanks JL. And I will avoid that show.

Thank you, everyone!

Sandra Almazan said...

I've read The Magic Wakes, so I'll have to check out Stellar Cloud. Thanks for letting me know about it!

Jo said...

Never been first commenter but never been 10th either. Congratulations on making it to the top 100, hope it goes even higher for you. There was certainly a lot of noise about your book this week. It was wonderful to see. Haven't read it yet, don't read much on vacation, but will do so soon.

Optimistic Existentialist said...

I didn't watch the pilot episode because I had read that it would be one of those shows that was cancelled early. BUT after reading the surprisingly positive reviews I think I may have to give it a shot!

Jemi Fraser said...

Lots of great stuff going on!!
Loving the whole CassaStorm tour :)

Madeline Mora-Summonte said...

I really enjoyed Sleepy Hollow! I was looking forward to it anyway and it didn't disappoint. I just hope it keeps going strong. :)

Have a good weekend, Alex!

Tony Laplume said...

I think I've learned more about blogging from the CassaStorm tour than in all the rest of the time I've been doing this. [taking notes]

And Clancy Brown is eternally awesome!

Nick Wilford said...

The tour has been mega! Just hope you get some good rest over the weekend.

Lexa Cain said...

Congrats on CASSASTORM hitting the top 100 of Space Opera! I've really enjoyed reading the questions you've answered on different sites. Wishing you the greatest success always. :-)

Rachel Morgan said...

Hey, great post over at Lee's blog :-)

Sherry Ellis said...

Arlee is such a great guy! Coming up with the A-Z challenge was probably the best idea to bring bloggers together! I'll hop over and visit him.

Zoltán Gecse said...

Is it an impolite question to ask how many copies you did sell? (If it is, you won't have to answer.)

I always interested about how many people buy a given book, because I'm the man of statistics and figures.

DAVID WALSTON said...

I had read that 50 couples were going to get married, and thought what about that 51st couple that you had to tell no to!

Loved Jeremy's astronaut.
He does some fine work.

Rusty Webb said...

Did I already comment here? I thought I did, but I don't see it. Oh well. Shoot, I forgot what I was going to say. Argh. Wait, I missed 'talk like a pirate day'

mshatch said...

Congrats to you to making to the top 100 and to Charity on her release :)

Huntress, aka CD Coffelt said...

As usual there is too much information to process.
Sleepy Hollow was interesting. So much so that I set my TiVo to record it. Looking forward to Vampire Diaries, The Originals, and Shield. Hopefully ABC won't muck the last one up.

Annnnd of course Walking Dead

Julie Flanders said...

Oh wow, congrats on making the top 100!! That's fantastic. Heading over to Lee's now. :)

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Your book is doing well - congrats!

Clarissa Draper said...

I have seen your book all over the web. It must be selling wonderfully.

Juliana Haygert said...

Congrats on making top 100! In fact, congrats on a great release week! :)

I liked Sleepy Hollow a lot too.I hope it gets better and better.

Christine Monson said...

Congratulations, Alex.

Donna K. Weaver said...

I'm so happy it's been a great week--and I'm glad you don't sing that bad. :D

I've not heard of the Sleepy Hollow series but I am looking forward to Agents of Shield starting next week.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Jo, you did it - and thanks, hope you enjoy it!

Optimistic, it still might be cancelled. Stations are so fickle these days.

Tony, really? Wow!

Nick, I am sleeping in tomorrow!

Sherry, yes it was.

Zoltan, won't have any idea until my next royalty check.

David, I didn't think about that! Bummer.

Rusty, that was yesterday.

Huntress, they better not muck it up!

Clarissa, it appears so!

Thanks, guys!!

Rhonda Albom said...

I have teens, I am always ready for controversy. I read a few of those posts. I also like the creativity of Julie from Empty Nest Insider.

James Garcia Jr. said...

Congratulations, Alex! Best wishes as always and much success! I had gone to bed when my oldest came into the room to tell me of Clancy's early demise. Isn't it weird that my oldest and I know Clancy from Highlander, but my 15 year old knows him from SpongeBob? *sigh* I'm ashamed to admit that I must have failed that boy somewhere. ;)

-Jimmy

Rachel Schieffelbein said...

I know a lot of people who were very excited to see Sleepy Hollow. Glad to hear it's looking good so far. :)

Patricia Lynne said...

I have to see if I can find Sleepy Hallow online since I have no TV service. The trailer I saw looked good and I've always enjoyed various takes on that legend.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Rhonda, everyone has done an awesome job with the announcement post.

James, you need to fix that! And I knew him first from The Bride.

Patricia, it's streaming somewhere...

Summer Ross said...

I'm glad the tour is going to well. The sleepy Hollow series I haven't heard much about, then I don't watch tv generally. So If it ever makes it to netflix, then maybe. :) Have a great day!

Tina said...

That's an awesome achievement in just such a short time. I'm 13% in and loving it!
Tina @ Life is Good

Sarah Ahiers said...

We enjoyes Sleepy Hollow a lot. Mostly because it was different than we expected.

Pat Hatt said...

Haven't tried sleepy hollow yet, I usually wait for the first season of a new show to be done, then if it gets picked up I watch it. Canadians don't count in the neilson viewers thingy anyway. Shield I'll be watching though.

Congrats on getting up in the top 100 so fast too

Arlee Bird said...

You really delivered the topic on my blog today. Thanks for the visit and for a great discussion.

ilima said...

Congrats on the bestseller list. Woot!

The Spooky Whisk said...

I haven't seen Sleepy Hollow yet - and darn it I usually don't read any reviews(of stuff I want to see), or even paragraphs and the one time I do ... spoilers.

Andrew Leon said...

There can be only one...
CassaBeer!

Leovi said...

Thank you very much Alex, so beautiful and emotional dedication! Greetings!

cleemckenziebooks said...

Congratulations on making a huge splash. I know how hard that is and how much effort it takes. Hats off to you.

I do visit Lee. We're related, you know. :-)

Lee

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Tina, thanks - that's good to hear!!

Sarah, I wasn't sure what to expect.

Pat, that's what I usually do as well, but I watched anyway.

Lee, it was a controversial as I could get! Thanks again.

Ivy, sorry! He dies in the first three minutes though.

Cassie Mae said...

Congratulations, Alex!! I bet it's been an amazing week for you so far. Take the weekend off to relax and bask in the after book glow :)

Roland D. Yeomans said...

What is it with Clancy Brown? They kill him off early in everything these days! Glad to see your sales sizzling!~

Beverly Fox said...

Congrats on reaching the top 100, Alex! You deserve all the success in the world!

You're the third person to give Sleepy Hollow a good review, I will have to check it out!

And now i'm off to visit Arlee!

Laura said...

I loved Brandon and Bryan's post, it made me laugh. Congratulations on getting into the top 100, that's great news :)

L.G. Keltner said...

That's a beautiful dedication!

mooderino said...

Off to check out your post on morality! (I wonder which side you're on...)

Rachna Chhabria said...

Congratulations on being in the top 100 Alex. Its great to see you take over the blogosphere for this week.

Loved your post on Lee's blog.

D.G. Hudson said...

Great way to end the week on a high point, Alex! I did pop over to Lee's blog. Interesting post and so are the answers.

Congrats on being in the top 100 of space opera!! I know my post on your release of CassaStorm is getting as many pageviews as the post on Fitzgerald's book, The Beautiful and Damned.

Cathy Olliffe-Webster said...

Controversy???? Ooooh, I'm all over that, Mr. Ninjaman. Top 100? Pfffft... any minute now you'll be making Top 10. Congrats!!!!!

M.J. Fifield said...

I did watch Sleepy Hollow, and I really enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to seeing where the series goes.

A Beer For The Shower said...

Thanks for the mention of our post, and more than anything, we're just glad to hear you liked it.

And congrats on making it into the top 100 of space opera! Earlier in the week we made top 100 of ghost stories, so I'd say we both had a very successful week. So cheers to another great release! We each snagged a copy of CassaStorm, and will give it a read soon. Do let us know what you think of Graveyard Shift, as it has my story from Andrew Leon's world (Axe Through Bone) in it, and I was always curious what you ended up thinking of that one.

Al Diaz said...

A beer for the shower was too funny. I did laugh at that. And I can picture you smashing guitars, but it makes sense that you prefer those that are not yours.
Already visited Toss it Out and Retro. Jeremy did a wonderful job there. Cool. :)

Samantha Geary Jones said...

Congrats on a whirlwind storm of blog-love and rave reviews! I predict CassaStorm's steady climb to the top! *Sending you a virtual bottle of celebratory wine*

WriterlySam

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Roland, the dude just can't catch a break.

Beverly, give it a watch.

Moody, I wonder...

DG, wow - that's cool!

Cathy, hope so!

Brandon and Bryan, you're welcome! And cool it has that story in it. I'm way behind on reading but will bump yours to the top.

Al, they all did a great job. No, I never smash my own guitars!

Samantha, thanks again for mentioning my book Wednesday!

Helena said...

I'm so happy CassaStorm is a hit already and aiming to go all the weay to bestsellerdom.

The books by Charity and Peaches look good, so I'll keep them in mind.

I just happened to catch Sleepy Hollow even though I didn't know anything about the show. I'm already hooked.

Suze said...

That's a lovely dedication, Alex.

Pk Hrezo said...

Way back when you had only 25 followers. lol Hard to remember those days, isn't it??
Headed over to Arlee's now ...

Melissa said...

Wish I could stay and play on the blogosphere all weekend, but I work weekend nights. Blek. See you guys on Monday.

Michael Offutt, Phantom Reader said...

Huzzah! Congrats on rockin' the space opera charts, Alex. I really liked Sleepy Hollow. I hope next week, you hit the top 100 on Amazon's all time and stay there forever :)

Have a great weekend.

Maurice Mitchell said...

The top 100 is very impressive Alex! There are a lot of great books in that category like "Ghost in the Machine" and "Enders Game." That Doctor Who wedding sounds great, but here's hoping they don't "regenerate" with new wives later.

Misha Gericke said...

Loved your tour posts so far! Heading over to Lee's now to check out the new one. :-)

Cathrina Constantine said...

I did watch Sleepy Hollow and like you was disappointed to see Clancy done it right away. However, Sleepy Hollow kept me interested.
Halfway through CassaFire, Alex, and enjoying in thoroughly. Congrats on CassaStorm!

Sheena-kay Graham said...

Have to watch Sleepy Hollow over the weekend, Congrats Alex.

Julie Sondra Decker said...

Totally commented on the Toss It Out post and what a fascinating topic.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

PK, I do remember though!

Melissa, bummer...

Maurice, that would be bad...

Cathrina, thank you!

Thanks everyone! What an awesome week...

Elizabeth Spann Craig/Riley Adams said...

What's a Friday without controversy? :) I'll head over!

Excited about your sales for CassaStorm!

Ella said...

Beautiful post Alex!

I love all of the high five's and cheers! Congrats on such an amazing week~ Woo hoo...off to make the rounds. I was snagged into sewing a Colorguard costume...grrrrr

Cheers Captain :D

Mina Burrows said...

Go CassaStorm Go! Question: With the release of this book, are you noticing your other books sales spiking too? I hope so.

I liked Sleepy Hollow. Very dark with that demon thing in the mirror.

Have a great weekend. :)

Carrie-Anne said...

Congratulations on all your success!

Christine Rains said...

It's been an amazing week with Storm Alex! Congratulations! All the support has been fantastic to see. I watched Sleepy Hollow, but I didn't get hooked. I might give it another chance, though. Have a great weekend!

Tara Tyler said...

so excited for you. so many creative friends!! amazing!

Donna B. said...

WOW! So much has happened since my last visit, which I am sad to say has been a long while... Congratulations on your prolific writing and publishing. I am so impressed with your graphic skills. I am not a science fiction fan...but I always enjoy your "pearls" and thoughts on writing. I am however, a HUGE ALEX CAVANAUGH FAN....and consider you a good friend.

Words can never express my appreciation for the support and friendship throughout our family's ordeal with my Father, who had and died from Alzheimer's. Big hugs to you Alex...All the best success to you sir!

Julie Dao said...

Congrats Alex - always so nice to see a blog buddy succeed the way you have! It gives nobodies like me hope! ;)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Ella, so sorry!

Mina, yes!!! Especially the first one.

Donna, and I have greatly appreciated YOU.

Julie, I should give everyone hope!

Mary Montague Sikes said...

Wonderful to be in the top 100! Congrats!

Mary Montague Sikes

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

I am thrilled for you, and your quick flight to the top 100 already. Congratulations,m Alex!

Thanks for referencing my CassaStorm post. It was fun. I'm still pining for Byron and building my arm muscles (7.5 lb free weights). Yeah, look out, Athee! You've got competition.

xoRobyn

Steven said...

No Sleepy Hollow for me since I cut live TV. The good news is I have more time to work on my many, many writing projects!

Michael Di Gesu said...

Congrats, Alex...

I could't be happier for you!!!! Have a wonderful weekend! Off to visit you at Lee's...

Hart Johnson said...

Lots going on! Your tour is fabulous--hope you're enjoying it!

And I liked Sleepy Hollow, too--interesting mesh of stuff, but I love the mix of time travel, myth and crime solving. The Biblical end, I am reserving judgment on--it is hard to pull off--Like I liked Supernatural until they pulled all that silliness in, but that just strained my credibility too much (though the eye-candy remained sound)

Liza said...

You have had a busy week! Top 100? Outstanding! Off to Lee's now.

Aleta said...

Oh my gosh, I'm behind in my reading!! I just saw your second book and placed my order via Amazon and you already have a third one out! (puts bag over head and mumbles an apology)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Robyn, your want ad was hilarious!

Steven, it's rare I watch a live one...

Thanks, Michael!

Hart, I might need to leave my brain at the door for some of it.

Aleta, thank you! Hey, you've been a bit preoccupied the past two years. No worries.

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

The different one question interview thing made each post unique. I think it was a great idea.
I liked Sleepy Hollow also. I'm going to tune in again.
Congrats on the top 100!

J E Oneil said...

The football game suck? I've never heard of that happening :P

I'll have to consider Sleepy Hollow. It's on Fox so it might actually be worth watching.

klahanie said...

Human, Alex,

My human is sleeping and that means I am taking over the commenting.

Aha, I see you are over with that human with the fascination for the alphabark, um, alphabet. I shall not let you know that "tossing" can be very much lost in translation.

It's all good, my human friend. Keep going and hearty congrats. Now I shall go over and delight Lee with one of my comments.

Links noted, by the way.

Pawsitive wishes,

Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar!

Nancy Thompson said...

FANTASTIC post over at Lee's! I was serious scared to read it at first though.

Vanessa Morgan said...

All the support you get is amazing.

Terri Rochenski said...

So glad I could help get you to that top 100! hehehe Congrats.

I missed the Sleepy Hollow premier. Totally bummed. If I'm not in labor with baby #3, I plan on NOT missing next weeks!

randi lee said...

Congrats on the top 100, Alex! Rock on! I finished your book this week and I have to say, hats off to you, man. You completely deserve your success. I'll be posting a review about it next week while on vacation, so hopefully some readers who have yet to be touched will read it and pick up their own copy!

PS--I returned four books on Kindle over the past week and a half, so, for me, reading yours from top to bottom is certainly saying something!

Brian Miller said...

ha. this has been an awesome tour alex....everyone has had so much fun with it...very cool....glad you got to smash a guitar along the way as well...haha

LuAnn Braley said...

Wow...your plate has been extra full this week. Sometimes you just have to FEAST! :O)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Susan, it was a lot of work but worth it.

Penny, you should take over more often!

Nancy, you knew what direction I'd go with it!

Terri, that would take precedence!

Randi Lee, thanks!! Glad you enjoyed it and appreciate the review.

Brian, it was fun!

LuAnn, makes up for the time of famine!

The Desert Rocks said...

I enjoy Arlee's blog and congrats on doing so great with CassaStorm!

I enjoy Arlee's blog and congrats on doing so great with CassaStorm!

Jackie said...

I haven't watched Sleepy Hollow yet, but it's on my DVR. Who knows when I'll get to it lol. It looks like it's going to be a great show!

Leovi said...

Very interesting Sleepy Hollow!

Kirsten said...

I watched the first episode of Sleepy Hollow on the plane, of all places,and was instantly captivated. The plot is so different from anything I've seen before--elements I wouldn't have thought worked together are quite believable.
Sounds like you had a hectic week, but that it's worth it. Congrats on such an auspicious release week!

Rekha Seshadri said...

Congrats Alex. My post is up, a tad late. I was under the impression that 21 was the a last day. Anyway...wish you a lot more of literary success.

Empty Nest Insider said...

Congrats on skyrocketing to the top 100 Space Opera on Amazon! I'm off to visit Arlee!

Julie

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Kirsten, you win for seeing it in the most unusual place!

Rekha, you got it up in plenty of time - thank you!

Thanks everyone!

Julie Musil said...

Alex, huge congratulations on your successful launch! Now I'm popping over to dig in to the controversy :)

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Alex .. it is great news and shows us all what can be done - I'm so pleased for you and surprisingly for us too ... as we're here for the ride and enjoyment of reading your books after being around the journey with you ..

Happy week ahead .. cheers Hilary

Bonnee Crawford said...

My continued congratulations to you Alex. It's amazing how much support you can get and it's great that you have found it helpful with your writing.

The Sleepy Hollow T.V show sounds pretty good, though all I can think of now is the 1999 Tim Burton movie. That was a great movie.

I'll head over to Lee's blog now and check out your guest post. Controversy is always good. :)

Diane Estrella said...

A big congrats to you and your latest release. I was all in with Sleepy Hollow too, but am now re-evaluating it. One more try for me. Have a great week!

Milo James Fowler said...

Way to go, Alex! I've been a fan of Clancy Brown since Earth2 -- the pilot was solid, might have to watch it during the beer commercials...

Al Penwasser said...

I watched 'Sleepy Hollow.' It has a dopey premise and a lot of it doesn't make sense. Like why would the Four Horsemen descend upon a town north of NYC? And was George Washington all that involved with this kinda thing?
It just seemed silly.
That being said...I loved it and will watch the next episode.
I don't mind putting my brain in park every now and then.

Susanne Drazic said...

Hi, Alex! CONGRATS on taking the blogsphere by storm - CassaStorm!

I watched Sleepy Hollow twice. Once with my hubby and once with my son. Looks to be a good series.

Charity Bradford said...

Yay! Congrats Alex on the top 100. I hope you stay up there a long time.

Medeia Sharif said...

Great post at Arlee's blog.

Yay for being in the top 100.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Hilary, glad you are enjoying the ride as well.

Bonnee, well, it wasn't quite as good as Burton's movie, but not bad!

Milo, yeah, football takes precedence.

Al, sometimes parking the brain gives it a chance to recharge.

Thanks everyone!

Eternal Curse Series said...

Your article on Tossing It Out was wonderful. I missed Sleepy Hollow but heard it was pretty good. The Horseman angle seems interesting. I unfortunately stumbled upon Saf3 and am struggling not to be angry with my husband for it for too long.

jamieayres.com said...

Yay for top 100! You've put together an amazing marketing plan! Hubs and I got to see Sleepy Hallow months ago b/c he works for the local Fox news station and they sent them a copy. Actually, one of his ex co-workers had a part in it! We were excited to see it finally air :-)

Susan Kane said...

You deserve a top on the blogger fame. Loved Sleepy Hollow, with its expanded plot lines.

Dr. Who Marriages? Did I miss something?

Gwen Gardner said...

I recorded Sleepy Hollow and watched it today. I really liked it. It seemed a bit like Supernatural, though. We'll see. The end was funny ---"put your hands on your head"---only it was the headless horseman.

Well done on CassaStorm hitting the top 100!

Huntress, aka CD Coffelt said...

Holy Cats in a Cradle! I just came from your CassaStorm page. 167 tour questions!!!

Those clones musta be scampering.

Congrats Alex!!! Looking good.

Lynda R Young said...

I hope the tour is going awesomely well for you, Alex. :)

I accidentally missed Sleepy Hollow. They have it on later than expected here in Oz.

Sabrina A. Fish said...

Loved your post over at Lee's blog. Congrats on making the top 100 list!

Patricia Stoltey said...

Hi Alex, Congratulations on zooming up the space opera rankings.

I recorded the Sleep Hollow premiere on a whim and just watched it this evening. I think I'm hooked. I love the chemistry between the lady cop and Ichabod.

The Words Crafter said...

Congratulations, Alex!!!!! That's awesome!!!!!

Heading over to Tossing It Out....

Danette Baltzer said...

Everywhere I look you're there. I think the word is definitely getting out there. Congrats!!

SC Author said...

So sorry for coming to this so late, this weekend was crazy for me :( Off to read your post, and congrats!

Gossip_Grl said...

WOW congrats on making it to the top 100! I watched Sleepy Hollow too. It will be interesting to see where they take this show each week. I too was sad that Clancy was killed off that early, but I wonder if his ghost or spirit form may make regular appearances.

Samantha May said...

Oh I'll have to check out Sleepy Hollow!

Cassie Mae as your cp? I bet that was extremely entertaining :D

Michelle Wallace said...

That's a lovely Cassastorm dedication Alex!
Congrats on hitting the Top 100 in Space Opera!

Debra McKellan said...

THAT's why I missed wrestling last week! I couldn't remember. So that means I missed Sleepy Hollow last night. Grrr.

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

I loved Now You See Me! Fun, fun movie.

DMS said...

What a beautiful dedication! I love that there were so many unique ways people were spotlighting your book! Just awesome and so nice to see everyone working together. :)
