CassaStar is HERE!!!!!!!!!

It's a grand thing when one of our own gets to live a dream. Bloggers get a bad rap sometimes as not being as credible as other writers. Pshaw, I have met some of the most talented writers here. I have often thought of inventing a aesthetically beautiful brainsucking contraption to release some "genius" into my own noggin.

Watch out Alex J Cavanaugh.......

You may be targeted as my first victim,,, er,,, Guinea Pig uh,, donor, YES!!!! Donor!!

Here is a bio for our newest published blogfamily member!!


Alex J. Cavanaugh has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and works in web design and graphics. He’s experienced in technical editing and worked with an adult literacy program for several years. A fan of all things science fiction, his interests range from books and movies to music and games. Currently he lives in the Carolinas with his wife.

His book is named: CassaStar and was released TODAY!!!!

Here is a written excerpt from the book as well as the trailer:


To pilot the fleet’s finest ship…

Few options remain for Byron. A talented but stubborn young man with a troubled past and rebellious attitude, his cockpit skills are his only hope. Slated to train as a Cosbolt fighter pilot, Byron is determined to prove his worth and begin a new life as he sets off for the moon base of Guaard.

Much to Byron’s chagrin, the toughest instructor in the fleet takes notice of the young pilot. Haunted by a past tragedy, Bassa eventually sees through Byron's tough exterior and insolence. When a secret talent is revealed during training, Bassa feels compelled to help Byron achieve his full potential.

As war brews on the edge of space, time is running short. Byron requires a navigator of exceptional quality to survive, and Bassa must make a decision that could well decide the fate of both men. Will their skills be enough as they embark on a mission that may stretch their abilities to the limit?



This is what the LIBERTY JOURNAL said about the book:

“…calls to mind the youthful focus of Robert Heinlein’s early military sf, as well as the excitement of space opera epitomized by the many Star Wars novels. Fast-paced military action and a youthful protagonist make this a good choice for both young adult and adult fans of space wars.” - Library Journal


I know what you are asking as you sit on the edge of your chair while biting the heads off of gummy bears.....

Thank you so much! I knew you'd have a sexy twist on this post, too.

I am kinda freakin' out about the whole thing. He is a part of our little family and he actually get to live the dream we all have. He is famous and he writes comments on my silly little blog. So now you, alex, dez and pat have talked about this book. Could Calvin be far behind? I'll ask him.

Marlene said...

I've been reading his name all over bloggy land today, but am afraid to say I don't know who he is. I see he commented above, so I'll definitely check his blog out. Thanks for the heads up. :)

So how much did you get paid by Alex for this plug? It's okay you can tell me. A year's supply of mascara and gummy bears?

I know now when I write a book it will be advertised here. How do you feel about pop up books?
