I will get to my F quote in a moment but first I want to say congratulations to Alex J. Cavanaugh on the release of his fourth novel, Dragon of the Stars. Yay, Alex! I'm participating in the scavenger hunt so read on for all the info on both the book and the hunt, as well as a visit from Mini-Alex himself.
SCAVENGER HUNT! Comment to win an autographed copy of Dragon of the Stars, tons of bookmarks & postcards, and a $20.00 iTunes gift card–where is Mini-Alex? Visit Alex for a list of the participants. (Open through April 11 – winner announced April 13 at Alex’s blog.)
Dragon of the Stars By Alex J. Cavanaugh
Science Fiction – Space Opera/Adventure/Military
Print ISBN 9781939844064 EBook ISBN 9781939844057
The ship of legends…
The future is set for Lt. Commander Aden Pendar, poised to secure his own command and marriage to the queen’s daughter. But when the Alliance declares war on their world, Aden finds his plans in disarray and told he won’t make captain. One chance remains–the Dragon. Lost many years prior, the legendary ship’s unique weapon is Hyrath’s only hope. Can Aden find the Dragon, save his people, and prove he’s capable of commanding his own ship?
Congratulations again to Alex!
And now for my F post: F is for Fail
Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. FAIL again. FAIL better. ~ Samuel Beckett
I like that this quote gives a new perspective on failing, something I have plenty of experience with. :D
I'm also at Untethered Realms today with F is for Flames. Visit me there for a teaser from Polar Day.
And don't worry, I didn't forget about Mini-Alex and the scavenger hunt. I was saving the best for last.
Thanks for coming by, Mini-Alex!
Fail better and more efficiently!ReplyDelete
Thanks again, Julie.
I've got a note of that Beckett quote - it really does make me feel better about failing. :)ReplyDelete
And yeh for Alex!
Great Post... Mini Alex is on computer chair!ReplyDelete

Which direction we are going!

So much going on with the a-z and Alex's release and everything everyone is doing. Whew!ReplyDelete
"Fail better." I love that!
I fail brilliantly, I'll have you know ;-)ReplyDelete

Wow Julie. That book cover is fantastic! And that was a wonderful quote by Beckett.ReplyDelete
It looks like Mini-Alex is hanging out in a chair of some sort. I'm going to go with computer chair, with car being my second guess.
Yay for Dragon of the Stars release day!!!!
My first thought was the center of a car's steering wheel for mini-Alex, but that's probably wrong.ReplyDelete
It's not how many time you fail, but how many times you get up! I'm a spectacular failure, Julie! LOL! Mini-Alex: carseat for a kid or a bucket seat in a car?ReplyDelete
Mini Alex is obvious getting ready to be buckled into a space ship seat. :)ReplyDelete
It's a big day for Alex! How can we grow if we don't fail on occasionReplyDelete
Fail better. You can't beat that.ReplyDelete
Mini-Alex looks like he's a gaming chair or a very odd bowl.
I'm thinking Mini Alex is either in a leather office chair or about to play a video gameReplyDelete
He's in some kind of seat.ReplyDelete
I had never heard that quote before, but I really like it!ReplyDelete
And Mini-Alex is definitely taking a drive . . . which is dangerous while reading.
Love that quote! I think Mini-Alex is on a computer chair?? Maybe?ReplyDelete
Hi Julie! I've never heard that quote, but I like it. It'll remind me never to give up. :) I'll make sure to check more of your A-Z posts this month. It's my first year so I'm a little slow.ReplyDelete
As for Mini-Alex, I can't really tell. I'll go for either a computer chair or child car seat?
Have a great day. Eva
"Fail better" is such a wonderful quote that we can all learn from! I'll have to share that one with my kids. Mini-Alex looks like he's driving over to a book signing for Dragon of the Stars! Yay for Alex!ReplyDelete
Oops...on second thought the background looks like he's on an office chair instead. I'd make a terrible detective.ReplyDelete
Congrats to Alex. He's all over today. Dragon's will be a best seller by the end of the day!!ReplyDelete
Alex sure did get around today and some of these have been difficult. I am going with a gaming chair of some sorts.ReplyDelete
One of my absolute favorite quotes, though I often misquote it.ReplyDelete
Looks like mini-Alex is in a car seat, or a bicycle seat?
mini Alex is sitting at the computer, looking up big Alex's books online.ReplyDelete
Samual Beckett was quite clearly a cool dude! I like him!ReplyDelete
Hi Julie - Alex is definitely still going around .. I haven't visited everyone yet .. Mini-Alex is on a chair of sorts I think!ReplyDelete
Definitely have to fail to be able to pick ourselves up, dust ourselves and start all over again - having re-evaluated what's going on ... cheers Hilary
Mini Alex must be getting some writing done!ReplyDelete
Lovely quote Julie! Behind every success are a number of failures :)
Brandy from Brandy's Bustlings
Love that quote! I'm pretty good at failing, and I hope I'm getting better at it :)ReplyDelete
Mini Alex seems to have moved up to the VIP room at that bar at the edge of the galaxy he's been hanging out in.
Great quote! Even if we fail, at least we're trying.ReplyDelete
I'm guessing Mini-Alex is either in a child's car seat or an office chair of some kind. Whatever it is, it looks comfortable.
Mini-Alex is keeping the captain's chair warm for Mini-Kirk who is away on a distant planet in Cassa Star.ReplyDelete
I think mini-Alex is going for a drive.ReplyDelete
I tend to fail at things regularly, especially when I try something for the first time. Have a great week.
Mini Alex looks like he's taking another ride on this Hunt! Failure brings you that much closer to success, right?! LOL Lisa, co-host AtoZ 2015, @ http://www.lisabuiecollard.comReplyDelete
