CassaStar Launches!

Start transmission.

I’m breaking my new blogging schedule because today is the launch date of CassaStar, the debut publication of talented writer and fellow blogger Alex J. Cavanaugh. I’ve already downloaded my kindle version and, having read the first two chapters, I can tell you that if you buy this book you’re in for a thrilling ride. I will be posting a review shortly. In the mean time, here are a few things to make you want to teleport your own copy.

What is the blurb?

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?

Who is Alex J. Cavanaugh?

Yes. Clear here to launch the trailer.

So what are you waiting for? If you don’t believe me when I say this book will take you on a thrilling sci-fi journey, trust in all the other bloggers who are dedicating blog space to Alex J. Cavanaugh this week. They have faith and so should you.
