CassaFire Book Release Party!

An exciting day! Today is the release date for Alex Cavanaugh's second book, CassaFire!

Alex was one of my earliest followers, and has been a great blog friend ever since. I'm so excited to spread the word about CassaFire! And for those of you who don't know Alex, his first book CassaStar has hit Amazon bestseller lists. So, I'm not the only one who thinks he's an awesome dude :)

Here's a quick teaser:

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…

A fun blurb:

CassaFire is the sequel to Cavanaugh’s first book, CassaStar, an Amazon Top Ten Best Seller:“…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

A rockin' book trailer:

And a random hot picture of Chris Pine, since Alex once mentioned that he envisioned Byron kind of like Chris Pine. Alex, you said I could customize this post however I wanted :)

So, go forth and purchase! Here's the linkage:
