Cheers, Cavanaugh BlogFest


We're celebrating one of the most generous and popular of bloggers who is also a talented author: Alex J. Cavanaugh. This Blogfest is the brilliant brainchild of Mark Koopmans, Morgan Shamy, David Powers King and Stephen Tremp. Thanks guys for organizing this. Your imaginations know no bounds.

So...what do I think Alex looks like? Well, not unlike this (left): 

If you want to see the picture on the site, go here: Alex . OK, it's not the Jesus Christ aspect (!!!). I know he's a good person but I'm not crazy. I really just think the picture looks like how I imagine Alex.

Who could play Alex in a documentary?  Easy-peasy. A very young Terence Stamp. Not as he is now (a teeny bit old) but as he was when he was young.

I hope Terence Stamp likes sitting in front of a computer, because I have an idea that Alex does a lot of that!
Alex reminds me of someone from a 1980s rock band - but I think that's because he plays the guitar...the name will come to me at 3am tomorrow.

Fan Fiction (using the prompts: Cavanaugh, Cosbolt, Ninja, Guitar, IWSG)

Alex Cavanaugh arrived in style for his book-signing gig by landing his Cosbolt fighter with expertise right in front of New York's largest book store. Copies of his new book, CassaIce&Fire, filled the store's window with a huge sign that said it stood at the top of the rankings above "50 Shades of Grey".  He gunned the engine, to the delight of the thousands of Ninjas who lined 5th Avenue, that had been closed to traffic, and waved his guitar promising his army a song later. Just before he greeted the store's CEO, his cell phone received a message: Good luck Alex, it read, this is Sue Roebuck, I'll be there to get my book signed as soon as I can. I'm just writing my IWSG post. You couldn't give me a lift could you?

To Mrs. Cavanaugh - thank you for sharing Alex in the bloggersphere. I think you deserve to have a guest post on his blog because I bet you help him out and that the pair of you make a great team.


Thanks again for organizing this Blogfest, Mark, Morgan, David and Stephen.

  3. Oh, I loved, loved this!

    "...the name will come to me at 3am tomorrow." <== this made me literally laugh out loud because this happens to me way too often!

    I really enjoyed your flash fiction too. It's so creative and hilarious! Glad to see he made it above 50shades! :D

  6. (sorry - I made a mistake in the last comment so I've started again) Thanks everyone. This is such a fun blogfest...just to make something clear: I don't think Alex looks like Jesus Christ, I just think the PICTURE on the site looks like him. ROFL

    And I agree, a post from Mrs. C would be a great addition to the Ninja's blog. :)

    Cheers!

  9. The flash fiction piece is awesome! Totally fiction, but it's still cool. I could handle being a young Terrance Stamp.
    Thank you so much for the kind words and friendship!

  26. Hi Susan .. the Terence Stamp look alike I could go with - now that wouldn't surprise me - great photo .. really am not keen on the first one!!

    Space flying into the book store is a great idea - so pleased Alex' trilogies fill the store window .. Grey should be well at the back ..

    Fun - cheers Hilary
