CassaStorm Hit Bookshelves This Week and a Giveaway

CassaStorm by Alex J CavanaughI’m thrilled to be a part of fellow blogger and author Alex J. Cavanaugh’s sizzling launch party this week as his third novel, CassaStorm, hit the bookshelves Tuesday, Sept. 17.

To celebrate this exciting event, Alex is hosting an awesome giveaway on his blog. Comment on his blog this week for a chance to enter this giveaway. One person will be chosen at random to win a Cassa mug, Cass mouse pad, swag, and a $25 iTunes gift card (or Amazon.)

First a look at CassaStorm from the Amazon Bestselling Series!

    A storm gathers across the galaxy…

     Commanding the Cassan base on Tgren, Byron thought he’d put the days of battle behind him. As a galaxy-wide war encroaches upon the desert planet, Byron’s ideal life is threatened and he’s caught between the Tgrens and the Cassans.

    After enemy ships attack the desert planet, Byron discovers another battle within his own family. The declaration of war between all ten races triggers nightmares in his son, threatening to destroy the boy’s mind.

    Meanwhile the ancient alien ship is transmitting a code that might signal the end of all life in the galaxy. And the mysterious probe that almost destroyed Tgren twenty years ago could return. As his world begins to crumble, Byron suspects a connection. The storm is about to break, and Byron is caught in the middle…

With Alex’s three novels behind him now, I ask him…..If you could co-author a book with anyone (living or dead) who would it be with and what would the book be about?

It would be cool to work on a book with Robert E. Heinlein since we both write a similar style of space opera. Not sure what I would bring to the table, but I would learn a lot from the master!
