COVER REVEAL! Alex J. Cavanaugh's CassaStorm

Ooooh, isn't it pretty?

CassaStorm by Alex J. Cavanaugh


A storm gathers across the galaxy…

Byron thought he’d put the days of battle behind him. Commanding the Cassan base on Tgren, his only struggles are occasional rogue pirate raids and endless government bureaucracies. 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, shaking Bassan to the core and 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 be on its way back. As his world begins to crumble, Byron suspects a connection. The storm is about to break, and Byron is caught in the middle…

I can tell you from personal experience that Alex is one of the most genuine, caring, and generous people I know.  He spends most of his free time serving and helping others.  He even wrote a blurb for my debut!  I feel very honored to consider Alex a true friend. 

Want to know more?  Okay!

He has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and works in web design and graphics. Alex minored in music and plays several instruments, including guitar, which I’ve heard him play.  He’s amazing! He’s experienced in technical editing and worked with an adult literacy program for several years. A fan of all things science fiction, Alex’s interests range from books and movies to music and games.  Seriously, this guy knows everything there is to know about movies!

He’s the founder of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group and a co-host of the A to Z Challenge. His first book, CassaStar, and the sequel, CassaFire, are Amazon Best Sellers. He lives in the Carolinas with his wife.

CASSAFIRE, Amazon Sci-fi Best Seller:
"This sequel to Cavanaugh's first novel, CassaStar, delivers on the promise of its predecessor, combining military action sequences and political intrigue with strong, memorable characters. Reminiscent of the action-driven stories of Robert A. Heinlein's early fiction..." - Library Journal

CASSASTAR, Amazon Sci-fi 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

Find Alex on his blog, Goodreads, and Amazon.
