The Reveal: Welcome to the "Cheers, Cavanaugh BlogFest"


Aloha,
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. J

So, here’s 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 J

Rules:

·         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.J)




The Linky is here and will be open until Dec. 12, 2012.

Well done Mark .. looks as though it'll be a good one - and Alex deserves some accolades ... I reckon he'll be hibernating after this .. perhaps he'll venture to Hawaii .. now that's a thought?!

Cheers Hilary

This is the best blogfest, I have encountered. What an amazing idea. I took off the month of Nov. for NaNo and I am just so glad I stopped by tonight and saw this. You are a genius. This is going to be a blast and you are so right, Alex is the man! He is the one I would hope to bump into at the party and tell him how much he has helped me throughout the year. I am really looking forward to this and I am impressed with those of you who schemed up this most appropriate tribute blogfest.

Powdered Toast Man said...

Am I suppose to leave a comment here for the bonus points? Am I leaving it for Mrs. Cavanaugh, his wife or his mom? I hate being under pressure like this, I don't know what to say to her especially when I don't know which 'her' it is.

I am going with don't eat yellow snow.

Susan Oloier said...

This is so wonderful. Sorry I couldn't participate--I'm starting my blogging hiatus today. But I wanted to stop by b/c Alex is fantabulous!

Michael Di Gesu said...

Nicely one, Mark.
