CassaFire and a Warning from Kate

Today is the Catch Fire Blog Party, celebrating the release of CassaFire by Alex J. Cavanaugh!

Alex has been a great bloggy friend and supporter since I started blogging as a wee little thing. He's also seriously obsessed with Kate Beckinsale, but that's for another post. We're not going to get into the details of how he and his wife deal with THAT.

No. Instead, we're going to help CassaFire “catch fire” on the best seller charts! 

There’s also a special package of prizes being given away at the author’s blog (copies of CassaFire, CassaStar, tote bag, mug, and bookmarks) as well as book giveaways during his two-week blog tour. 

CassaFire
by Alex J. Cavanaugh

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…

He's also got a book trailer here!

If you haven't been following Alex's blog, you should. Not only is he super supportive of his followers, he's got info-stuffed posts about entertainment and books galore. 

You can get Cassafire at these places:

For the love of Kate, please buy Alex's books!
