Join Sally Cronin, and many other authors, as she celebrates the Smorgasbord End of Summer Party on her blog!
Welcome to three days of activities where I hope to introduce you to some headlining acts who have contributed and supported the blog since the early days in September 2013. These last four years have been such an adventure and I hope that it will continue for many years to come.
However, I have to say a huge thank you to everyone who has dropped in and left their mark on the blog. That interaction has motivated me to keep writing and to continue to build a book promotion site that helps other authors get their books noticed. With hundreds of thousands of new titles each week it is a challenge to grab the spotlight, but I hope that in some small way, I can help with that.
In September I will be increasing the number of opportunities to showcase your work with a new author interview series.. with a…

During the Merrie Month of May, I discovered (through friend Felicity Harley’s reblogging of it) a series of posts by a new-to-me UK blogger, beetleypete, titled A-Z Film Challenge. I was late coming into the challenge with my own suggestions (I didn’t begin commenting until around the “L” post, I think), but I was pleased to see that Pete’s series had already attracted a great deal of attention and further recommendations from his blog’s readers that it seemed as though a real online “party” was going on! I also discovered in short time that Pete has an extensive knowledge of World Cinema (which I particularly enjoy) and had many of the same experiences of seeing films for the first time when he was growing up in England as I had growing up in Canada. Turns out we’re just about the same age. While Pete and I mainly agreed on his daily alphabetical choices, I found it fun to search my own memory banks and remember those other films that had meant a lot to me over the decades. I also discovered a few new pals in the comments section who brought even more movie titles and experience to the table. When Pete’s series came to an end, I know I wasn’t the only movie-lover sad to lose this daily reminiscence we’d come to anticipate and enjoy. I asked Pete if he had kept track of all the suggestions made – he hadn’t – and offered to go back over the posts and compile as complete a list as I could.
Thanks to Pete Johnson for the original idea of this series, and for his stick-to-it-iveness that kept it going. Also, thanks to Pete’s readers for all their great suggestions!
Here’s a complete update of this entire list of Beetleypete’s blog posting of movies – thanks to one of Beetleypete’s readers, ozflicks, for not only listing the more-than-1000 movies in alphabetical order from this series, but also for annotating the entire list to show not only Pete’s top favourites for each letter but also who exactly added to his list with their own preferences. Ozflicks has included a “legend” of names to which the initials beside each title refer. Much more thorough than the original list I created on this blog post, so I decided that rather than copy his work, I would create a PDF file and link to it here: The Beetleypete 1000
This list gives you the entire alphabet, as well as the Numbers at the end, so it’s much more complete than my proposed two posts would have been. Thanks, Ozflicks!
Hooray!! An occasion to really celebrate! Kevin Brennan has published a new book! Read all about it here …
Guess what? In No Particular Order is now live on Amazon!
Here’s the blurb:
It’s true that life is linear, but the living of it is all over the map. In this memoir-in-vignettes, novelist Kevin Brennan (Parts Unknown, Yesterday Road) examines his life the way memories occur in the wild: in no particular order. Whether it’s recalling high school humiliations, ups and downs in love and romance, or unique interactions with the human race at home and abroad, Brennan both entertains and moves the reader with moments of unexpected poignancy and full-tilt humor. In No Particular Order is a deconstructed memoir, like no other because it looks at life as it really is — a kaleidoscope of individual moments.
Snatch a copy today for just 99 cents, but be sure to tell your buds about it, because I suspect I won’t be able to promote this title…
