Taking the World By Storm: CassaStorm is FINALLY Here!

I'm really excited to be part of the crew that is helping Alex J. Cavanaugh launch the last book in his best-selling trilogy! Today is THE big day!  Alex gave us a unique opportunity when we signed up for this gig: ask him anything.  I know a LOT of us have been wondering, jealously...

 How do you find time to do all you do AND work AND have a wife?

Well fortunately I had the wife before all of this began! Part of it is that I just make time. I have a lot of friends online and I enjoy visiting their blogs. My real secret (besides the rumored clones) is my job rocks. I have a couple computers, my laptop, and my iPad – I can do my work, watch a movie, and blog all at the same time. I’ve even brought my acoustic guitar to work a couple times and practiced while doing all of the above. No, you will not be seeing that on YouTube anytime soon…


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…

“CassaStorM is a touching and mesmerizing space opera full of action and emotion with strong characters and a cosmic mystery.” – Edi’s Book Lighhouse

“Cavanaugh creates such an unforgettable world, and these characters will stay with you long after their story is over.”
- Cassie Mae, author of Friday Night Alibi and How to Date a Nerd

You still must be the multitasker of the century!

And no one wondered where the music was coming from...

I want to see it on YouTube!

Blogging while driving is frowned upon by the blood center for which I work -- silly people!

What bands do you like, Alex? Heavy rock might be a bit much for even the most laid-back of offices -- unless you own the business! :-)

What a job Alex has! All his talents appreciated. Even the guitar at work, I'm impressed.

Good luck Alex! I like the mini-Alex touch at the end.

Michael Di Gesu said...

Yeah, no kidding, Michelle..

ALex's job rocks, if you can work and still do all that he does.

Hi Tina,

New follower here from Alex's book release blog hop.

I don't know how he does it but he must have a lot of great people around him -- friends, family, coworkers/bosses -- that give him time & space he needs to create. I'd love to find the time to finish even one of my stories and he's done a whole trilogy!
