It's Official and The Weekend Follies Star Trek Style aka Hikaru Sulu

It’s Official My fourth novel, Salem’s Daughters, is officially released! I’m not kicking off festivities until Monday October 5th at the Ninja Captain’s blog though. A great big thanks to Alex Cavanaugh for helping me with tour stop number one of the Salem’s Daughters Blog Tour. Select above TAB for a complete blog tour itinerary. 

This tour will be a lot of fun as I have a diverse array of topics in lined up. Unlike my previous three tour stops for the Breakthrough Series, there will be no wormholes required to travel to each stop. It’s an insurance thing. Seems they don’t like the fact not everyone made the return trip. 

Yep, That's Me About to be Spaghettified
So I lost a few bloggers last time around. Heck, I almost didn't make it back. So what. I think a 64.7 percent return rate is pretty darn good considering wormholes are unstable, can collapse at any time, and we understand little if anything about traversing them. 

I'm One of the 64.7 Percent!!!
Although our former blogging buddies' atoms are floating around in our atmosphere and we could be breathing them in as you read this, there is still the chance we can reconstruct them in the future. 

Insurance companies. Bureaucracy. Big Brother. Pffhhhttt! 

Cats, Cats, and More Cats: Check in here on the days of my tour stops for fascinating and interesting stuff about cats in my Did You Know and Fun Facts series. For example: 

Did You Know: The world’s richest cat is worth $13 million after his human passed away and left her fortune to him. 

Fun Facts: A cat has been mayor of Talkeetna, Alaska, for 15 years. His name is Stubbs. And one cat ran for mayor of Mexico City in 2013. Hmmmm … maybe a cat could run in 2016 and be our next president. 

Question: Do you have a cat and if so what's their name(s)? Do you like cats? Allergic to them, maybe? 

Weekend Follies: Having a challenging week? Got abducted by aliens and no one believes you? Need a good laugh? Well, click on Einstein’s smiling face at the top of my left side bar and step through the wormhole (don't tell my insurance agency) and travel at warp speed to the Blogging A TO Z Challenge website for some Star Trek spoofing Hikaru Sulu style! 

Who Am I My name is Stephen Tremp and I write Speculative Fiction and embrace science and the supernatural to help explain the universe, our place in it, and write one of a kind thrillers.

  1. Hi Stephen - well done on releasing Salem's Daughters ... you've certainly got your blog tour organised and kept us informed of what's happening. Cats - love them and used to have them ... cannot have them here - but I often see them. Alex will do you proud ... have a great weekend - cheers Hilary

  2. Congrats on your release day! It's probably a good idea you didn't suck anyone else into the wormhole.

    I have a tiny black cat named Rocko who is absolutely crazy.

  3. Congratulations and I wish you the very best!

  4. Looking forward to hosting you on Monday!
    If a Golden Retriever ran for president, I'd vote for him.

  5. Exciting...your new release. I need to get a copy. I only have one kitty now. She's 17 and not doing well.

  6. Congrats on your release of Salem's Daughters!! No cats here, never had one as a pet. My mom used to clean someone's house and they had 7 cats; a little too many for me I think :)


  7. I've never owned a cat for a pet. My dad was really allergic, so we never had one growing up. Now, hubby keeps saying we need to get one, but I don't want to go to the animal shelter because I will want to take them all home and I can't.

  8. Congratulations on launching yet another book! I hope sales are off to a terrific start.

    Yes, we have two very spoiled cats named Dot and Dash, so named because my hubby and I are amateur radio operators. We thought it was a cute idea when we named them as teeny kittens, but the names don't suit their personalities very well. Should've named them Lucy and Ethel. Or Tinkerbell and Tankerbell. Not that it matters. After all, they ARE cats, and they refuse to allow their behavior to be altered by the calling of ANY name. They come when they darned well feel like it. :)

    If you've never seen it, my post from last Friday includes William Shatner "singing" "Rocket Man." It's a hoot, and obviously, his family never spent much money on music lessons.

  9. Happy release day! How exciting! :)

    And LOL, love those cat facts. Hope that rich cat knows how to save money. Would be a shame if it blew through all of its millions in just one of its nine lives, after all! XD

  10. Congratulations on the publication of your book! So exciting!

  11. You're funny! What's a wormhole? And how did it make you lose bloggers? I'm not scientific-y at all, so I don't get the analogies! Every time I do a blog tour, at least one person just doesn't post. They just vanish the day they're supposed to post, never to be seen commenting on my blog again! I don't know why that phenomenon occurs!

  12. Congrats on your release! I love cats and have three of them.
