Drumroll Please!


Hey you.  

Yeah I'm talking to you.

Have you heard the news?  

I bet you have, but allow me to add my voice to the crowd.  

Fellow blogger & author extraordinaire, Alex J Cavanaugh's debut novel CassaStar releases today!!! 

Take a peek:

If book trailer does not appear above (I'm still a little rusty at this kinda thing), you can see it on You Tube HERE

Or, if you're unable to watch the trailer (ahem, like maybe you're sneaking a peek at work) here's the synopsis:

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 Guard.

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?

To be perfectly honest, I don't remember the last science fiction book I read, it's been that long.  BUT this awesome trailer intrigued me enough to put this on my list a few weeks back.  How about you?

For your convenience, any of the following links will take you directly to CassaStar for more information (or better yet, make a purchase)



Please swing by Alex's blog to introduce yourself or congratulate him.
