Weekend Random

I added some new buttons to my sidebar. There are some exciting releases and blogfests coming up.

First in my sidebar is the blog tour for Julie Duck's A PLACE IN THIS LIFE. To date, there are a few slots available in this tour if you're interested.

Sign ups for The Blogging from A to Z April Challenge will start January 31st. I plan on joining and it will be my first time doing this challenge.

I signed up for the Tumble 4 Ya Blogfest, which will take place February 10th. Participants will blog about their celebrity 80's crushes. Who should I pick? Johnny Depp, Ricky Schroder, Michael J. Fox, Kirk Cameron, Emilio Estevez, any one of The New Kids on the Block...there are so many choices, really.

Alex J. Cavanaugh's CASSAFIRE is being released February 28th. I need to move my copy of CASSASTAR higher up my to-be-read pile so that I can read the sequel after it.

And this is a reminder for The I'm Hearing Voices Blogfest, which runs February 6-10. It involves three posts and coincides with the Tumble 4 Ya Blogfest, but that's okay. On February 10th I'll write both posts.

So that concludes the explanation on the latest buttons in my sidebar. I will now share with you my new favorite song, because I'm always discovering songs for the first time and all of a sudden I have a new favorite. This song isn't that new, but I heard it for the first time recently and it's always on replay while I'm writing.

80's crush? Now I feel so old

Miranda Hardy said...

I'll be joining you in the blogfests. So much fun. Have a great week.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Medeia, thank you! I'd be honored if you read either of my books.
And glad you are taking part in the A to Z Challenge. It's awesome - you will get so much out of the experience.

The Golden Eagle said...

Lots of cool stuff!

I'm planning on doing the A-Z Challenge, too. :)

Suze said...

Yay, Alex!

I'm so glad you signed up for the Tumble 4 Ya fest.

Movies on my Mind said...

I'm a bigger fan of "Shake it Out".

DEZMOND said...

FLORENCE is very creative, although she is no Cate Bush or Tori Amos. Love her YOU GOT THE LOVE cover.

Donna K. Weaver said...

Can't wait for CassaFirE. I got it for my hubby for Christmas, and we read it together. Loved it.

I did A to Z last year and was surprised at how much fun it was. I'm so in again this year.

Alissa said...

You are a busy woman. I am in awe of all that you do! I also have to agree with you 150 percent on Michael J. Fox. A ginormous poster with his face on it once adorned my bedroom wall.

Meredith said...

I love this Florence & the Machine song! So inspiring. Can't wait to see who your 80s crush is! :)

Stephanie Thornton said...

I love, love, love Florence & The Machine. I think I have every single one of their songs.

Have fun with those blogfests!

BTW- Did you know we're agent sisters now? :) Woot!

Nas Dean said...

Lots of good books and blog challenges coming up. Thanks for all the links and the info!

Christa said...

Please pick Michael J. Fox because really...Alex P. Keaton was so win. Also, I was an epic failure at the A to Z challenge last year. I just couldn't handle the pressure. Plus, I bored myself with my posts, my poor followers. Ha!

Kelly Hashway said...

Wow, you've got a lot of blog tours and challenges coming up, Medeia. Good luck with them.

Carol Riggs said...

Wow, there are a lot of blogfests coming up. Neat. Oh! Don't forget Rachael Harrie's Writer Platform Campaign--she's doing that next month, plus in August. Here's the linky:

The A to Z challenge sounds like just what I need. I'm heading over to check it out.

Carol Kilgore said...

I'm moving Alex up in my stack, too.

BragonDorn said...

So much is going on :0

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

I'm still struggling with whether or not to do a-z this year. I'm on a blog posting break right now (kind off) so that I can work on Lenny's and my pb and my mg novel....We'll see as we get closer.

Susan Fields said...

Thanks for the heads up about the blogfests! My 80's crush is easy - John Taylor of Duran Duran. I might have to enter that blogfest! :)

Janet Johnson said...

You are one busy chica! I say go for Ricky Schroeder. I so had a crush on him back in the day. :)

Shannon Hitchcock ~ Children's Writer said...

I hadn't heard the song. I really love it though!

Amy L. Sonnichsen said...

I hadn't heard that song, either! Thank you!

You have a lot of fun coming up. Enjoy. :)

Naomi Ruth said...

Ooh, I love new music. I just found this band called The Listener. Music is so much fun.

So much is going on! Hope you have fun! :)

Medeia Sharif said...

Thank you all for your comments. I hope to see some of you around for these blogfests.

And thanks for the 80's crush suggestions. You show amazing taste.

I'm glad some of you enjoyed the tune.

Primose, me too.

Medeia Sharif said...

Congratulations, Stephanie!
