CassaStorm Release by Alex Cavanaugh + Giveaway


Today I'm delighted to help Alex J. Cavanaugh celebrate the release of the third book in his best selling science fiction/space opera series, CassaStorm.

I had the opportunity to ask Alex one question about his new release.

IR: Are any of your characters similar to you? If so, which ones and how?

AC: None of them are based on me. I probably share Byron’s perfectionism and desire for privacy, but that’s about it. And he’s devoted to his mate, Athee, just as much as I’m devoted to my wife.

Awww! Alex is such a sweetheart. I do know he has a mega crush on Kate Beckingsale, but I'm sure Mrs. Cavanaugh has nothing to worry about.



CassaStorm
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…

“…mesmerizing story of survival, personal sacrifice, tolerance, and compassion. It’s a rare jewel that successfully utilizes both character and plot to tell a story of such immense scope and intimate passion…” - Nancy S. Thompson, author of The Mistaken

"An exciting, nail-biting read which sweeps the reader off on adventures in another galaxy." 
- Nicua Shamira, Terraverum

Letting It Show

When Alex J. Cavanaugh started the Insecure Writer's Support Group two years ago, I thought it was a brilliant idea and I still do. At the time, I was living in England. I’d set aside time from 1130 to 1pm to directly respond to each commenter on my blog and to visit as many other blogging authors as possible. Since everyone else was just putting up their post as England is five hours ahead, it was a fantastic system where I felt like I was on top of everything.

My system is far more erratic today. I don’t visit nearly as many buddies as I’d like. However, my enthusiasm over being a member of this group and my love of writing has only grown. So on the two year anniversary of the start of the IWSG, I'm letting my immense gratitude and a little something else show.

I released my first book, Kindred of the Fallen, with all of my friends in the cyber world cheering me on back in January. I’m thrilled to share the cover of the sequel, Protector of the Flame.



Thank you for the support, kindness and generosity you’ve shown me over the last two years.

My next paranormal romance releases October 22. If any blogger buddy, new or old, would be interested in hosting me on their site Oct 21 - Nov 22, I’d greatly appreciate it. It could be something as simple as a shout-out on release day or more in-depth like an interview or guest post. Just send me an email saying you’ll squeeze me in: isis@isisrushdan.com.

Thank you and don’t forget to let me know what you think of the cover.
