Today begins my virtual tour for CassaStar, which comes out October 19.
First stop: Speculative Book Review with a review.
Not a perfect review, but a positive review!
And this review just appeared at Scribbler to Scribe - WOW!!
My publisher has agreed to a giveaway, too! It starts today and the winner will be announced on November 1.
So here's the scoop - I'm not going to make this complicated:
* Comment here
* Comment on just one of my tour stops
* Those of you posting an announcement on the 19th receive a second entry - I really appreciate everyone who volunteered to do this!
You are welcome to comment on any or all of the stops, as each one is quite different. (But it's not a requirement.) Select a blog that's new to you. Several of these blogs receive high traffic but low comments - I'd like to blow their minds! Show them that Alex's Army ROCKS!!

I would almost be envious of you, Alex, except that I know my time will come soon enough as far as getting ready for the launch of my own novel. I can only speculate the level of excitement coursing through you right now.
Jeffrey, you will know soon - and then I can tout YOUR new release!
Alex, great review on Scribble to Scribe. Congratulations!
normally i'd be all over this contest, but i'll need a book to read before Nov 1st and i was planning on buying Cassastar on the 19th. So i will stick with my original plan so i can read it sooner

I've left a comment on Old Kitty's post and I've posted it on my blog and here's my comment.
Have a great time, Alex! <3
Hey Alex! I'm new here...in August and September, I had lots of computer issues and forgot to go back and follow the people I intended to follow.
Hope I didn't lose you there...
Congratulations on your book release; I'm getting my copy Thursday. I'm very excited to know that out here in the blogverse, it really is happening for people.
Seriously, man-- mazel tov! This is so freakin' awesome. (= Going to make a noise about it.
Words Crafter - wow, thanks!!
Thank you, Jo!
Oh, I'm so glad I didn't miss the tour. Congrats, Alex!
I'm really excited to see your book, now that it's out. I'm a little late to the game, but better late than never, no? :)
Looks like an awesome book. I <3 your book trailer - in fact, it's the first book trailer I've seen that made me think maybe I should change my opinion about book trailers. ;o) Good luck!
Alex, I am so excited for you! Your baby is out there in the big world and I can't wait to get my hands on a copy (next payday).
I've been away from Blogger quite a bit and only got your post up yesterday. Which doesn't qualify me for another entry but that's okay. If even one person finds your blog and buys your book because of my post that's what matters.
Have a great weekend! that rebel, Olivia
How exciting, Alex! I'll be sure to check out your progress through the tour...have fun.
You had a great tour, Alex. Sell a million!
