Mi Cassafire, Es su Cassafire ~ :)

Hello, my bloggy friends!!  Oh, how I've missed you ~ :)  And I figured, if there was any one day to stage a comeback - it just had to be the day of my bloggy friend, Alex J. Cavanaugh's launch party and release of his second novel, CASSAFIRE!

Here's some info you'll definitely want to know about Alex and his newest book:

by Alex J. Cavanaugh

 CassaStar was just the beginning…

The Vindicarn War is a distant memory and Byron’s days of piloting Cosbolt fighters are over. He has kept the promise he made to his fallen mentor and friend - to probe space on an exploration vessel. Shuttle work is dull, but it’s a free and solitary existence. The senior officer is content with his life aboard the Rennather.

 The detection of alien ruins sends the exploration ship to the distant planet of Tgren. If their scientists can decipher the language, they can unlock the secrets of this device. Is it a key to the Tgren’s civilization or a weapon of unimaginable power? Tensions mount as their new allies are suspicious of the Cassan’s technology and strange mental abilities.

 To complicate matters, the Tgrens are showing signs of mental powers themselves; the strongest of which belongs to a pilot named Athee, a woman whose skills rival Byron’s unique abilities. Forced to train her mind and further develop her flying aptitude, he finds his patience strained. Add a reluctant friendship with a young scientist, and he feels invaded on every level. All Byron wanted was his privacy.…

 Available today!

CassaFire is the sequel to Cavanaugh’s first book, CassaStar, an Amazon Top Ten Best Seller:
“…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'm sure if you stroll around the blogosphere today, you will see CassaFire posted nearly EVERYWHERE!!  Don't worry - a bad case of Tgren mind control has not taken over our humble little on-line world.  It's simply that Alex ROCKS!!  He's one of the coolest ninja bloggers out there and a good guy to have in your corner.  So - check out his book, will ya???

 The goal of this massive blog party is to help CassaFire “catch fire” on the best seller charts and achieve the success of the first book, CassaStar. There’'s also a special package of prizes being given away at the author’s blog (copies of CassaFire, CassaStar, tote bag, mug, and bookmarks) as well as book giveaways during his two-week blog tour. See Alex'’s site for details: http://alexjcavanaugh.blogspot.com/  Check out this awesome prize pack:

The blog tour runs until  March 9th - and if you'd like to follow more info/comments on the book via Twitter - the party hashtag is #CatchFire

So, my friends - do Alex a solid (good heavens, did I seriously just type that???) and check out the blog, the book, and everything else you can get your hands on.

And I'll be back to post more exciting QoP quips soon!  Heck - I might even join in that A-Z blogger challenge thingy...you know the one, right?

Ciao for now.  Happy writing/reading/living out there today!!

Hey, Donea,

I had to drop by and say hi... We certainly have lost contact, haven't we?

I hope to change that now. I am back again, trying to reconnect. I hope this time I can keep it going. You know how life is... right?

I hope all is well in your world.

These kind of book aren't really my thing but after reading your post I decided to give it another whirl. Thank you so much for helping me get out of my comfort zone.

I found your blog from the GUTGAA event. I couldn't resist checking out a few blogs before the event started and following them as well. Russo @ www.threegnomes.blogspot.com
