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...
Shift in Dimensions
Laura’s profile photo reveals a smile - but then again, so do her posts and comments! A fellow author, Laura always stops by to say hey and leave a word of encouragement. She also promotes helping her fellow man in any way possible.
Susan is a fantasy writer, and her series The Futhark Chronicles boasts the most amazing covers. She discusses books, her writing struggles, and champions other writers whenever possible. As Susan Says - no flaming unless you’re a real dragon!
Today is another edition of Fantastic Friday Writers! I invite your to check out my partners - Elizabeth, Anastasia, JD, Deirdra, M. Pax, Jeffrey, Charlene, and Andrew. I’m sure their take on this subject is better than mine!
Today's topic is Support Systems.
Another easy one. You guys are my support system. Every awesome blogger who visits with encouraging words. Every blogger who posts great tips. Every blogger who's helped me on my journey. (And the awesome bloggers who are now my critique partners.)
YOU are my awesome support system! And this Ninja thanks you...
My book trailer is in a contest! Vote for #7 CassaStar at You Gotta Read Videos if you think my trailer is worthy and cool and all that.
Read a couple of posts about support systems. I've gained a support group through this A-Z challenge!

We all need support, this challenge has given me plenty so thank you for that.
You, and the other hosts of the challenge, have really done a great job of supporting all of the fellow challenge writers, so thank you for YOUR support!
Duncan, that's why the Challenge is so cool.
li, thank you so much!
It's great how everyone is so supportive in all things. I see it not just on my blog, but when I'm visiting others. Everyone is just awesome. It gives me a warm fuzzy feeling!
Voting is done! Now on to the weekend.
Great blog choices by the way.
I do love my support system very much. In fact, they deserve some chocolate. I'll have to do something about that.
Now I'm off to check out your trailer!

I voted! Good luck. :)
I have definitely gained support through this challenge and so many more things as well. I just thought it would be fun and help me to get a bit more focused on my blog. I never expected to get out of it all that I have. Thank you for helping to make this happen.
Voted up the trailer! It deserves to win. Only 70 votes though. Come on guys, follow the link!
Thanks for introducing us to your partners. It's nice to have support.
Well, Alex, you give so much of yourself you deserve to get something back! That's the way it works. Thanks for the links today. I always follow them.
Support Systems are Stupendous!
Happy Friday :)
Amen, to this support system. It rocks.
You are a great supporter, too, Alex. Just look at all the work you're doing during this challenge. You must be a speed reader!
Can't do it without support. Thanks for the links, too. :)
Hey Gregg! Hope you're enjoying the Challenge.
Jules, glad you're back.
Dafeenah, I discovered the same thing last year. It's such a rewarding experience.
Lauracea, thanks - my buddies are special people.
Mary, just wish I was a speed typer.
Laura is fabulous! I will have to check out Susan. And it's funny you should say it... my wacky blog today is sort of on my support system, too, though you're right--the blogosphere is also a big part of it.
I love Susan's blog and you're right. The Futhark Chronicles has some amazing covers. I haven't read the second book yet but I'm looking forward to it.
I've heard of The Futhark Chronicles and saw the cover.
Some interesting blogs. Thank you Alex for the heads up on them!
For sure. There's no way I could do it without my support system. Great post!

I found a great support system when I started blogging. Fellow writers are awesome! :)
Thanks for the links worth following; and you're right -- this writer/blogger community we've got is really something special.
Support in the blogging community and elsewhere from other writers is really wonderful. Thanks for being on my support team, Alex. :D

Thanks, Donea, but I know that could change. (The voting, not my support system.)
Ellie, the FFW did good.
Support systems are so important! I love my blogger buddies.
I enjoyed your post and your suggested reads (as usual) Just popped over and managed to vote on your trailer - you're doing brilliantly - well done :)
Have a great weekend
I agree, blogs are such a wonderful source for writers to share and gain information about the writing biz. No other website or article is as helpful as my followers and the blogs that I follow.
You're always a great support system for us! Thanks!
Voted for you. Good luck.
Thank you so much for the mention, Captain Alex!
I really appreciate my beta readers. And the blogging community.
I appreciate all of your encouraging words throughout this past year, Alex. April marks my first anniversary of blogging! It's been and still is GREAT fun.
Have a wonderful weekend!

I love Laura's blog. I am on my way to check out Susan.
My support system is the people I have meet in the blogging world. Specially Laura and Grandpa. Though you and a lot of others are great help as well.I don't know why it took so long to convince me to join in.
voted (although it doesn't look like you need any help. You're smashing the poll!). Well deserved. :)
Very nice that you put other people on the spotlight for the A to Z challenge. Laura certainly deserves it, and I'm sure visiting some of your friends. :)
Me encanta la fantasía de Susan. Un día de estos se viene por España y comparte una sesión de fotos conmigo. Un saludo.
I love the fantasy of Susan. One of these has been to Spain and share a photo session with me. Greetings
I am loving the support system that is growing on my blog and everything I see on everyone else's. My blogging that has been a dream for me is becoming a reality i hope i continue to gain followers and stuff after april is over.
