Today I am visiting Damy at Daily (w)rite. She’s been a very special friend for many years, and I’ve really missed her presence on the A to Z Challenge Team. I’m discussing the ‘What If’ of writing, so be sure to stop by!
A to Z Challenge – Cult Classics – I
Movies-Music-Sci-fi Book-Bloggers-Dragon Term
Based on a 1968 book, the story harkens back to a more simple and innocent time and features Vin Diesel as the voice of the giant. (It was also the first DVD I ever purchased without seeing the film first - and I was not disappointed!)
First album with the iconic Maiden lineup, this Platinum selling album was listed as one of the greatest metal albums of all times and included hits such as The Trooper.
Science Fiction Books –
Influential in developing the zombie genre, this book was adapted at a film three times–The Last Man on Earth (1964), The Omega Man (1971), and I Am Legend (2007.)
Published in 1896, this book explored moral responsibility and animal cruelty. Shortly after the book’s release, the first anti-vivisection groups were formed.

This has been a wild week with a book release right in the middle of the challenge. I’d like to thank those who made this week awesome.
Thanks to those listed above who posted for the scavenger hunt. Some of you added it to your Challenge posts, which was awesome.
Thanks to everyone who joined the Thunderclap campaign. I saw the full list of everyone who signed up and it really meant a lot to me.
Thanks to those who pre-ordered or purchased my book! Some of you have already finished reading it, which just blows me away.
Thanks to those who posted on their own about my book -
Cathrina Constantine, Ellie Garratt, Randi lee, Elizabeth Seckman, Lisa Buie-Collard, Susan Gourley, Mina Burrows, Dani at Entertaining Interests, Yvonne Lewis, Elana Johnson, Lanise Brown, and Ella. All links go directly to their posts, which were touching and sweet.
Brandon Ax! He always draws a cartoon of himself with a dragon, and he did one in honor of my book. You rock, Brandon.
And a special thanks to Roland Yeomans for sending me on yet another wild adventure across the stars. Searching for the Dragon with Mark Twain and being accosted by Princess Aura – that could only happen to me!
Bottom line, you guys all rock! As always, I am humbled by the support. And I never even wanted to be an author.
And if you are still wondering about those Kargrandes…
Seen the Iron Giant? Fan of Maiden? Read the books? (Or seen any of the many movie versions?) Following those awesome bloggers? And who has helped you this week? Who would you like to thank?
Don’t forget to visit the awesome Damy!
