Announcement: The Cheers, Cavanaugh Blogfestivus!


You've been dying to know, and now, the secret is finally out!


Welcome to the “Cheers, Cavanaugh BlogFest.” 

Have you ever attended a holiday party where you bump into the one person who's always been there for you throughout the last year? You’d want to thank them for being incredibly stellar, right? If there’s one person in the Blogosphere who you would want to say cheers to, who would it be?

For us, it was a no-brainer - Alex “no hyperlink needed” Cavanaugh!

Without being asked, Alex has become a blogging enigma, always helping hundreds of his fellow authors by announcing book releases, hosting guest posts, guest interviews and always leaving positive comments. We can’t have a live party for the Ninja Captain, but we can host a yuletide BlogFest!

Hosted by Mark Koopmans, Morgan Shamy, David Powers King and Stephen Tremp, this blogfest will run from December 10 - 12!

On those days, answer these four questions as creatively as you'd like:

·         In +/- 20 words, what does Alex look like?
 ·        In +/- 20 words, who could play Alex in a documentary (living or dead)?
·         In +/- 20 words, who does Alex remind you of?
·         In +/- 100 words, (excluding the title) write flash fiction using all these prompts: Cavanaugh, Ninja, IWSG, Cosbolt, Guitar. 
Any rules? Here's a few:

- Be a Follower
- Join the Linky List
- Post your 200 word contribution (on Monday, December 10, if you would)
- Have fun!

Two winners – chosen by Alex – will each win a prize:

FIRST PLACE: A signed copy of CassaStar. 

GRAND PRIZE*: A picture of Alex and a download of him playing the guitar (on the condition that his picture is NOT to be shared online). 

The Linky is open until Dec. 12, 2012. So, how about it? Ready to give back to the most deserving blogger in the universe and make his face go bright red? I'd pay to see that happen. Come join the fun!

I'm David, and guess who grabbed the last box of Twinkies?

  7. David, I'm sorry that I can't participate in Blog Hops until the end of November. *Sigh* But this one's in December :)

    I've tagged you for The Next Big Thing.

    Come to my blog for the details.

  8. Poor Alex is right! Did someone bribe him with Hot Tamales?! We might have to hold him hostage at a Rush concert or a Kate Beckinsale movie marathon!

  9. This sounds like SO much fun. Alex is probably blushing up a storm right now...

  10. You guys are awesome. May the best person win.

  11. This is going to be fun! (And I haven't had a twinkie in years!)

  12. I have a theory. If the day arrives when I actually see Alex, I will discover that he is really Michonne from the Walking Dead. Then I will be like..."I totally knew that was him/her."

  13. Um... am I supposed to say "that's all Greek to me," now? Because no one else has said it, and it's kind of obligatory.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Guess I'll have to trot out the only known picture of Alex Cavanaugh in December.

  15. It's not easy to tell what anyone looks like in the blogging world...yeah, some have pictures that are supposed to be of them, but many don't have profile pics, so, I imagine all the men looking like Mordecai Richler or Vonnegut...and the women like Margaret Atwood. It sounds like another fun 'fest!

  23. I appreciate Alex for the resources he offers and blog hops he hosts, such as the IWSG. If you're reading this Alex, a handful of peanut butter cups to you!
