CassaStar Blog Tour

I'm really excited to be taking part in this blog tour today because Alex is a good blog buddy and he has a really exciting book coming out soon. Plus, it gives me an easy post that I barely have to think about!

Just kidding. Most of you probably know Alex, since he is one of the most prolific bloggers out there, but just in case any of you don't, please go stop by his blog now and become a follower, you won't regret it!

So without further ado, here is some info about both Alex and CassaStar:

Alex's Bio:

Alex J. Cavanaugh has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and works in web design and graphics. He’s experienced in technical editing and worked with an adult literacy program for several years. A fan of all things science fiction, his interests range from books and movies to music and games. Currently he lives in the Carolinas with his wife.

Book Info:

CassaStar by Alex J. Cavanaugh
October 19, 2010 Science fiction/adventure/space opera
ISBN 9780981621067 Dancing Lemur Press LLC

To pilot the fleet’s finest ship …

Few options remain for Byron. A talented but stubborn young man with a troubled past and rebellious attitude, his cockpit skills are his only hope. Slated to train as a Cosbolt fighter pilot, Byron is determined to prove his worth and begin a new life as he sets off for the moon base of Guaard.

Much to Byron’s chagrin, the toughest instructor in the fleet takes notice of the young pilot. Haunted by a past tragedy, Bassa eventually sees through Byron's tough exterior and insolence. When a secret talent is revealed during training, Bassa feels compelled to help Byron achieve his full potential.

As war brews on the edge of space, time is running short. Byron requires a navigator of exceptional quality to survive, and Bassa must make a decision that could well decide the fate of both men. Will their skills be enough as they embark on a mission that may stretch their abilities to the limit?

“…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

I never knew about Alex's background. Thanks for posting that. And I can find the humor behind hosting people. They do all they work and we just copy amd paste. Its an easy day at work.

I saw the trailer for this and was pretty much floored by it. Alex deserves a round of applause on this eve before the release of his book. I'm getting chills just thinking about Alex's release. I can't even begin to fathom what he's going through.
