The Desert CassaStorm

Where am I? Huh. I'm actually home, for now anyway.

These last three weeks have been crazy. But no more airports for me for probably the rest of the year. Hopefully I'll be able to catch up with everyone in the next few days.

Somehow, I managed to be a guest on Eve's The Desert Rocks blog. Go check it out. I discuss a few more creative ways to get out of your funk and beat Writer's Block. Eve was one of the first bloggers I connected with after returning to the blogging world from my hiatus, and she's just an awesome person.

Also, you're going to see a lot of Alex J. Cavanaugh all over the intewebs in the next week or so. His third book in his space action adventure, CassaStorm, will take the internet by storm I'm sure. The interesting thing about CassaStorm is that Alex has said that it will be his final book, despite the great success he's had with CassaStar and CassaFire so far.

Which made me think, did Alex plan for a trilogy in the first place? Or was the very first book supposed to be a one-shot deal and that was it? So when I asked Alex, he replied:

I never planned more than one book. Fans wanted a sequel (and a female character) so I wrote the second one. Once CassaStar became an Amazon Best Seller (and especially once CassaFire hit that status) my publisher really pressed to make it a trilogy. So I never planned it, but writing that third book did help me to bring the story full circle

So there you have it! Often times, the path not-so-planned ends up being the greatest road to travel on. Congrats Alex on all your success.


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 
“…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

Thanks, Jay!
And caught your guest post with Eve last week. Good stuff.
No guarantees it's my last book, but writing is on hold at the moment. Now it's time to jam instead.

A busy man still making time to do guest blogging... impressive. I'm looking forward to the final in the trilogy finally being here. Good question too.
