I am honored to be one of the thousands hosting the release of Alex J Cavanaugh's CassaStorm, the third book in his SF trilogy. 
Comment on Alex’s blog this week for a chance to win a Cassa mug, mousepad, magnet, and swag!

My question for Alex was: If you could change anything about the world today, what would it be and why?

I’d like my own private road where I can go as fast as I want without some slowpoke getting in my way!

What I’d really like to change is the devil’s ability to fool people.


By Alex J Cavanaugh

From the Amazon Best Selling Series!

A storm gathers across the galaxy…

Commanding the Cassan base on Tgren, Byron thought he’d put the days of battle behind him. As a galaxy-wide war encroaches upon the desert planet, Byron’s ideal life is threatened and he’s caught between the Tgrens and the Cassans.

After enemy ships attack the desert planet, Byron discovers another battle within his own family. The declaration of war between all ten races triggers nightmares in his son, threatening to destroy the boy’s mind.

Meanwhile the ancient alien ship is transmitting a code that might signal the end of all life in the galaxy. And the mysterious probe that almost destroyed Tgren twenty years ago could return. As his world begins to crumble, Byron suspects a connection. The storm is about to break, and Byron is caught in the middle…

  10. I've been known to drive a little "speedy" so I could use that private open road as well... But I suppose I can control myself and back you up with taking away that ability from the devil, Alex.

    Fantastic question, Yolanda :D

  11. Hi Yolanda and Alex,

    I managed to find an open road and actually got here. Delighted to see the ninja dude's tour has arrived here. Well done to Alex.

    I have been over to Lee's site and I shall also take the liberty of sharing this posting.

    All the best to the both of you with your ongoing writing fulfilment.

    Gary :)

  12. Alex, I like to drive fast, but on long trips just in case I like to have other drivers on the road.

    Yolanda, great post at Tossing It Out today. You got us thinking!

  18. Good luck to Alex with the release of CassaStorm! Hopefully this will help sell the previous two releases too.

  19. HI, Yolanda,

    Great question for the Ninja Captain... Alex, a very intuitive response. We all get tricked in more than one way... And there isn't anything finer than a clear open road ahead.

    It reminds me of the time when I bought my first sports convertible. Wow, what a fast little care. A skiver, '91 Mercury Capri, XR2 .. turbo. I had the chance to zip through Alligator Alley in Florida at 125 mph... it was AWESOME! I was a lot more reckless back then. lol.

    Yolanda... looking forward to your launch!!! How exciting!!!

  20. Yay for Alex! I think we'd all like our own road. :)

  21. Great question!! I so want a road just like Alex-maybe we could drag race-lol!
    Nicely done Yolanda!
    I know the Ninja Captain is enjoying this amazing week! Mine will go up tomorrow~

    Yes, Yolanda I look forward to your launch! Anyone wanna race?! ;D

    Congrats Alex!
