Catch Fire! Blog Party - CassaFire Feb 28, 2012

CassaFire is Here!

If you like Science Fiction, then you must have heard of author Alex J. Cavanaugh. He's the blog owner of the site by the same name.  Check out the Ninja Captain's blog at http://alexjcavanaugh.blogspot.com/

Today is the Catch Fire! Blog Party, celebrating the release of CassaFire by Alex J. Cavanaugh! The goal 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/

CassaFire 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…

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

  1. Great to see so much love for Alex today. No one deserves it more.

    1. It's only good karma coming back to Alex. But you're right Matt, it is great to see it!

    1. You're very welcome, Honoured Ninja Captain.

      I posted a photo of the CassaFire book cover on my 21st century blog, with a link. It's a great cover. I also added the Canadian Amazon site to my post since that's where I ordered both CassaFire and CassaStar.

      Now, I've got to wait for some new sci-fi to read! Enjoy the day, Alex.

  3. Party! I'll share my chocolate. :)

    1. Chocolate is very good with coffee or Spanish Sherry. I make a good sweet or savoury virtual crepe.

      Thanks for dropping by, M.

  4. Alex must be going nuts with all these blogs to read! Good thing he's such a fast reader. Hurray for Cassafire!

    1. I don't know if Alex ever said how many bloggers participated.

      I searched my blogroll to find the ones I visited. I may have missed some.

      Thanks for dropping by, Nutschell.
