OMG! I Caught FIRE!!

I am officially a NINJA on FIRE ~ CASSA FIRE, that is. And I know this is an official Young Adult Teen Tuesday aka YATT. So don't worry, all you YAers out there. I do have something for you at the end of this post. Just had to help Alex spread his wonderful news!!

Welcome to the Book Birthday of a fabulous blogger and talented writer, Alex Cavanaugh. He's a Sci-Fi writer, major movie buff, and gamer. CASSAFIRE is available TODAY!!

His blog tour runs from February 27 through March 9, so there is plenty of time for you to get in on the action. 

Anyone who comments on his blog posts during this time will be eligable to win a special package from his publisher: copy of CassaFire and CassaStar, a large tote bag, and a mug. Feel free to spread the word about his awesome news; don't forget to use his fiery Twitter hashtag ~ #CatchFire.

Title: CassaFire
Author: Alex J. Cavanaugh
Genre: Science Fiction - soap opera adventure
Pages: 240

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

Available for purchase at: Barnes and NobleAmazonAmazon Kindle. Visit the author's SITE.
