Cavanaugh BlogFest Reveal!


It's time...

If the title doesn't give it away...

I told you it was going to be epic...

Poor Alex is going to be embarrassed for weeks...

This BlogFest has the BEST PRIZE EVER...

Something that's never been done...

It's time to give back...

And now the big reveal...

Ever attended a Christmas party where you bump into the person who was always there for you during the last year? You'd thank them for being such a RockStar, right?

If there's one person in the Blogisfear who you want to say cheers to, who would it be?

For us, it was a no-brainer. Alex "no hyperlink needed" Cavanaugh.

Alex is an awesome blogger who's helped hundreds of us via book releases, guest posts, guest interviews and always positive comments. While we can't have a live part-ay for the Ninja Captain, we can host a BlogFest:

Welcome to the "Cheers, Cavanaugh BlogFest." 

Hosted by Mark Koopmans, Morgan Shamy, David Powers King, and Stephen Tremp, the BlogFest runs from December 10-12.

While Alex is an awesome blogger, he's also an enigma.

So, here's the four questions:
  • 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

For Bonus Points:

  • In +/- 40 words, leave a comment for Mrs. Cavanaugh - thanking her for sharing 
  • Join the Linky List
  • Be a follower.
  • Post your 200 (total) word contribution Monday, Dec. 10.
  • Have Fun!


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

FIRST PLACE: A signed copy of CassaStar.

GRAND PRIZE*: A picture of Alex and a download of him playing the guitar.

(*One caveat: Alex asks the picture or download NOT be shared online.)

The Linky is open until Dec. 12, 2012.

AMAZING, right? I'm freaking out about the Grand Prize. Who doesn't want to see what the ninja captain looks like??? And hear him play??? 

Seriously. I'm so excited for this BlogFest. Alex has done SO MUCH for this community and I'm so grateful for the chance to help give back. 

Excited? Shocked? Imagine how Alex is feeling! Sign up for the Linky List below:

Red. Head. Out. :D 


  1. Ha, this is brilliant! Looking forward to it!

  2. I'm in. (You would have to make this difficult. :P)

  3. I think having not shown us what he looks like has made that picture of Alex the most coveted prize of the blogosphere this year. The downside to co-hosting? I won't have a chance to win it. Release the hounds! :)

  4. Oh
    I know this is going to be an insane battle to win.
    I'm up for the challenge, tee,hee
    Already started mine!
    Blog on...

  5. What an awesome blogfest. May the best person win.

  6. Alex is so deserving. Bet he's blushing, cause he's also like the most humble guy on the web.

  7. This just makes me smile because Alex is all that.

  8. I stick by my assessment that once someone knows what Alex looks like, they will realize he's actually Michonne from "The Walking Dead."

  9. shut your mouth! that was brilliant :)~

  10. Think I can feel Alex's embarrassment from this side of the Atlantic! Awesome idea I'm sure it will be HUGE.

  11. I signed up already. This is so cool!

  12. Finally, no more teasing! This is an awesome idea for an awesome guy :)

  13. This could be the biggest blogfest ever.

  14. I totally didn't predict what the blogfest was about. lol

  15. This is such a fun, brilliant idea! You guys ROCK - as does ALEX, of course! Can't wait to read through these :)

  16. I CANNOT WAIT for this amazing blogfest! I'm totally in!

    Can't wait! This is gonna be so fun! Better win one of those prizes! They are awesome! I really would like to know what Alex looks like ;)

    YES, come December, now!

    Darn, I gotta write this thing up and it will be my first stab at flash fiction! Gaaahhh, I'm nervous too!

    Don't know what to think right now!

    Awesome stuff, guys! :)

  17. Commence evil laugh...MWAH HA HA HA HA HA... This is gonna be EPIC!

  18. Morgan! You have a mighty fine blog as well! But you know what? Anybody who loves the Ninja MUST be a mighty fine blogger!

  19. What an epically awesome idea! I adore Alex and have come to value his friendship. He really is one of the best. And you guys are too, for rallying this community to give back to the Ninja. :)

  20. This is a truly original blogfest. I'm really going to have to put on my thinking cap for this one, get that creativity flowing. Alex is the best and they don't call him the ninja for nothing. Spectacular idea!
