Let's get right to it.
The 2015 Blogging from A to Z April Challenge was awesome. It was busy and crazy and time-consuming and rewarding and just plain awesome.
I only came up with my theme shortly before it began even though I knew well in advance I'd be doing the Challenge. I always say that I work better under pressure.
Truly, The X-Files theme fell into my lap with the announcement of a six-part mini series. I consider myself lucky that I had 'almost' enough stuff to show you guys for the whole month. :)
As a Co-Host I spent a lot of time looking at other people's blogs. I saw some really amazing ones with fantastic themes. I wasn't smart enough to jot them all down, but I did write down a few.
Of course ... my three amazing Stormy Sidekicks!
Sarah Foster from The Faux Fountain Pen! - Her theme: **My theme for this year’s A to Z Challenge is THE NAME GAME. Everything you’d want to know about naming characters.**
Jennifer L. Hawes from The Writing Game! Her theme: Greetings from Hannibal, MO, Mark Twain's boyhood hometown, my theme for this year's AtoZ Challenge.
Diana Gordon from Part Time Monster! Her theme: We’ll be talking about Lady Monsters all month long.
All the incredible co-hosts!

There were more. I know there were more. When I run across them again, I will certainly share them.
THANK YOU again for coming to visit Stormy, BOB the Alien, and me for the Challenge!
Alex J. Cavanaugh: Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!
His awesome co-hosts for the May 6 posting of the IWSG will be Eva Solar, Melanie Schulz, Lisa-Buie Collard, and Stephen Tremp!
My first book is supposed to be re-released on May 20th and I don't have my edits back yet.
Sales have come to a crashing halt.
Upcoming advertising for the books is slower than molasses.
My MUSE is MIA!
I'm losin' it!
...I know its only temporary.
The BBC Blogfest!
Blood, Boobs, and Carnage Blogfest!
Alex used that phrase last year to describe an upcoming movie release. It amused many people, including ME. (Okay, mostly me) So, naturally we decided to make it a blogfest.
What falls into that category? Here’s a few examples – Conan the Barbarian, Breaking Bad, Fast and Furious, The Watchmen, etc.
Here’s the details, short and simple:
On May 18, 2015, post about a movie, television show, book, or all three that falls into the category of Blood, Boobs, and Carnage. (Or just Blood and Carnage or other mixture.) It can be any genre that fits the bill – fantasy, science fiction, action, adventure, western, thriller, etc. Post the badge and visit other participants.
Have you signed up? I can't wait to see what you guys come up with!
