CassaStorm is out!

I wasn't creative enough to come up with a unique question for Alex, but I do want to say a few words of my own about him.  

Even though I've never met him in person, I feel like I've known Alex for years.  I first "met" him three years ago during the A-Z Challenge.  I was nervous about being a new blogger but Alex commented on every one of my posts about a minute after I had posted. It was so encouraging.  I felt like I was really part of something.  
I made it through my first A-Z excited about the possibilities of blogging, but I figured someone with as many followers as Alex wouldn't continue to read my posts after the challenge was finished.  I was wrong.  
Three years later he still comments on almost every post I write.  WOW!     
He continues to inspire many new and old bloggers with his comments,  frequent blogfests and IWSG (Insecure Writer's Support Group).  
Alex has a unique capacity to bring people together.  

Thanks Alex for all that you do for us!  I hope the launch of the third book in the Cassa series is a huge success!!

By Alex J Cavanaugh

From the Amazon Best Selling 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…
