Release Date Celebration!...and Other Stuff

I'm popping my head out of my revision cave for a very special occasion...

It's Release Day for our friend Alex Cavanaugh's debut CassaStar!

It's getting great reviews! 
Go buy it (I did!):

  • Amazon

  • Barnes & Noble

  • Books-a-Million

  • Check out his slick, badass book trailer:

    I will be doing an interview with Alex here on Thursday (22nd)...find out about his writing process, how he found his publisher and so much more.

    Please go stop in at his blog and wish him a big happy release day! 
    CONGRATS ALEX!!! ✩♡✩

    In other news, the Halloween Party was a blast...here are a few photos:

    Dude, Frankie could dance! Not kidding. He worked that dance floor.

    That is one ugly Wednesday!
    Fester had a light bulb that worked...but somehow I didn't get a single shot with it. :(

    Okay, I have loads more pictures from the party, but won't bore you with more of them. I just chose these at random (actually, they were the first shots taken, early in the night, so the first downloaded), these weren't the best costumes by a long shot. There were SO many incredible costumes. Sadly, I didn't get a single shot of husband/faux Poe! *pouts* (but I think others did and hopefully will email them to me.)

    (also, I think I have somehow turned into the most parenthetical blogger on the planet. WTF?)

    Again, CONGRATS Alex!!! ✩♡✩

    Susan Tiner said...

    What fun Lola! Do your characters also speak parenthetically or is that your own quirk? It's funny how we all develop our own writing style. I love yours.

    Kittie Howard said...

    After my computer settings bruhaha, I'm getting back into the routine so returned to your super blog (love those red shoes!)...wasn't sure you'd check comments on the previous post so thought I'd drop lots of hugs and smiles that you finish your work soonest. We're not going anywhere.

    Loved your fabulous decorations, especially the framed photo on the piano...you've got a great sense of humor...

    And thanks for your sweet comment...I love coming here as well...Kittie

    LOVE the costumes! Looking forward to the interview, too!

    ~Nicole Ducleroir~ said...

    Yay Alex!!! And Lola, that was the best Uncle Fester I've seen since the real deal. What a perfect costume for that guy! Loved these pics; wish I'd been there. Looks like a hoot!

    ((hugs)) Nicole

    Jeff King said...

    Jo Schaffer said...

    Yay Alex!

    And I love Halloween. My hubs makes the best costumes evah.

    Ellie said...

    I just noticed your Bowie picture - I love David Bowie. Expecially Ziggy Stardust.

    Carolina Valdez Miller said...

    Major congrats to Alex! And how cool is that party? LOVE the costume of Hester Prynne. Total freaking awesomeness. I haven't been to a memorable Halloween party since like the 6th grade.

    Terresa said...

    Heya, Lola, this post gets me into the Halloween spirit! Love the costumes! (are you in any of those pics, by chance?)

    I'm off to check out Alex's interview now!

    Lola Sharp said...

    Sorry friends, I was the picture taker, not takee.

    There were others taking pictures, so if anyone emails me some shots of me or my husband, I'll post them.
    Maybe. (if they're flattering ;)

    About Me

    My Photo
    Lola Sharp
    My name is Lola. (I'm not a showgirl) Yes, L-O-L-A Lola. It's the least of my worries. Let's move on, shall we? This blog is mostly about my misadventures on the journey to publication and beyond. My passion for lush prose, quirky characters, art, music, literature, performing arts and anything creative will be a major theme here. This journey of mine will not always be pretty. Much like rubbernecking a train wreck, I know sometimes you just can't help but look at the carnage that is often my life. So strap on your neck brace, helmet and 5-point harness and come along for the ride! Licentia poetica.
