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...
Kelly is a delight! In every picture, there’s that big, beautiful smile, and her joy bubbles over into every post and comment. Need a shot of happiness? Want to hear her sing? Visit Kelly today!
I want to thank everyone who answered my call for critique partners. Clarissa, Ellie, Stephanie, and Matthew, I really appreciate your offers. And any of you who need a first chapter critique – Clarissa is powerful! She’ll whip your work into shape in a heartbeat.
After much debating and deep Ninja thoughts (those hurt!), my new critique parters are Jeffrey at World of the Scribe and Rusty at Blutonian Death Egg. Jeffrey has a great sense of where I’m going with my words, and Rusty knows how to catch things I miss. Plus the dude has a great sense of humor – I about died laughing while reading his critique comments!
And Anne at Piedmont Writer will be helping me with the relationship stuff. (Translation – the man/woman stuff!) She’s a fantastic writer – I’m in awe of her use of language in her Regency romance. (And yes, this Ninja DOES know the difference between Regency romance and the Hyatt Regency.) Thanks guys!
Thanks Alex. And hey, we all have our niches. I don't know the first thing about warp speed.
Pleased you have people to help ,
you're spoilt for choice.
Have a good day
You know I'm not Sci-fi but with a name like Blutonian Death Egg..... How can I not check the guy out.
congrats on your new crit partners :)
I am proud to be in the service of the captain ninja!
Congrats on your crit partners!!! *waving at Anne*
I'll have to come back this afternoon and 'meet' the others you've linked....
Sounds like a great critique group, Alex!
It sounds like you have everything lined up. Good luck with critique.

Jules @ Trying To Get Over The Rainbow
I can imagine what a tough decision that was -- congratulations on finding your crit partners. So much fun! coming up; no?
Hello, fellow A-Z Challenger! Here's my latest entry. Come visit either of my blogs when you can
and leave some comment love:
K is for Kitchen Konvenience - http://bit.ly/hU4v0h
sounds like a great team!
Great critique partners make our books so much better. Glad you found yours :)
I think it's important to have crit partners who play different roles/have different strengths.
I will vouch for Anne too, since she beta'd for me and was AWESOME, AMAZING and FAST!!!
sounds like things are coming together good luck with it all.
Congrats on finding critters you like. Good luck and I hope it all comes together.
Thank you for featuring me today, Alex! A big smile for you!
Good crits are good to have!
It's so interesting what different partners bring to the table, isn't it? I've got Legacy with it's 3rd round of people, and have had fabulous advice from many different folks, yet there isn't that much overlap--everyone spots different kinds of things.
Yay for all these awesome people. We're so lucky to have such great bloggers around us.
Masterful, not to miss any detail of this beautiful blog POLARK KELLY
Looks like you found yourself some excellent crit partners.
(Kelly and Anne have been/are good friends to me!)
Great you found such good support, Alex. Good luck.
Congrats on the critique partners! Best of luck!
Critters are the best, and you've got some great ones listed there. Yay for you guys~ :o)
Its great to have friends. I know most of these people. Rusty's great and gives deep thought provoking feedback and comments. Best wishes on your second book, you busy guy you.
I'm impressed you know the difference between Regency Romance and Hyatt Regency.
I didn't know you were working with Jeff, that's very cool!
Sound like you are one serious writer!
I homschool my 15 yr. old in literature/history and am always tyring to critique her writing in a way that's constructive and not discouraging. Not always easy to do.
Things got better when I threw away the red pen. :)
sorry for the spelling errors (on a writer's blog! yikes!)
I have about 10 minute to look at blogs each day so I'm typing super fasttttttttt
Jules, she does!
Sarah, she is really good and fast - her critique was the first I received back!
Kelly, you're welcome!
Hart, I discovered this! Everyone sees something different.
LTM, critique partners are critters - I like that!
MsHatch, Ninjas need to know these things...
Matthew, I am now!
Scarlett, that's all right - I wouldn't have even noticed! That's why I need critique partners.
Alex, you have surrounded yourself with the right kind of supportive bloggers and others. You can only succeed as far as the company you keep. You will only continue to do well in life.
it's nice how your blogs always seem to be thanking people. It's nice to hear & see thanks from people that you help in anyway, sometimes people just forget that now a days and that little word can mean a lot to someone that is feeling a little underappreciated or invisible:-)
Stop by and give K is for Karma a read:-)
Nice to meet new Ninjas! lol Sounds like a great team you have lined up~
Off to check out the new gals!
I use to work with a Hyatt at a Best Western, poor kid. YOU can hear the jokes now,"Hyatt you should work at the Hyatt"...it was lame~ Good to know you can tell the difference; Some Ninjas can't...
No need for thanks - getting to read part of your sequel was thanks enough!
It sounds as if you have the right crit partners set up. I must send something to Clarissa!
I need a critique partner, she says in a very small voice :(
Hi, Alex! So happy for friends! Looks like you're well loved. :)
So glad you found some partners! Best of luck in everything.
Cheeseboy, I accept that fortune!
Up, I wouldn't be where I'm at without my online friends.
Ella, I'm a clever Ninja.
Ellie, you should! Wow, she did an awesome job.
Lauracea, check with Clarissa and Stephanie - they do super critiques!
Good use of the 'K' post. :) But - there is a difference between Regency Romance and the Hyatt? Hmm ...

Congrats on your new crit partners. I agree with you on Kelly. She's awesome! I love her.
You guys are doing a great job on the blogging challenge by the way. I enjoyed reading the various posts on my phone while I was on Spring Break.
Congrats on finding the critique partners. And thanks for Kelly's link I'll have to check her out.
That's terrific, Alex. I'm glad you found crit partners that will push you into your next published novel.
Marvin, one houses more than just romance...
Patricia, glad you could check in on us!
Michael, they will push, prod, shove, fling...
Yay for amazing Cap'n Ninja's Army of Adorable Angels!!!
You are wonderful, Alex. Thanks for all the kind words and for Thursday's post (in advance).
These are some awesome bloggers you feature.
Geech! Just listening to the American deficit as I type here. How many trillions was that again?? One scary economy!
Kitty, the name just keeps getting longer...
You are welcome, Robyn - in advance!
Scary isn't it Denise?
Alex, you're killing me here. I'm trying to visit hundreds of blogs from the challenge in some semblance of order and you keep giving me suggestions for other great links.
I am honored you chose to go with humor over substance... sigh. Lucky for me my wife made the same choice.
Seriously, I'm totally jazzed about reading the whole thing. Can't wait to get started.
Congratulations of finding compatible critique partners. That's not always an easy thing to do!
Rusty and Jeffrey are good choices. I think they will give some great feedback.
Tossing It Out
Have fun with your new critique partners! I treasure my own writing support network so I hope you have as much fun with yours as I do with mine.
I'm so glad you found your crit partners. Mine are invaluable and they have whipped my work into shape faster than exercise is whipping my body into shape.
i love sci-fi! i should check out your book. now! :)
Rusty, isn't that how all wives make their choice?
Glad that you found your right- fits. It's a fine line between "good" and "good for this project," eh?
