CassaStorm is Out! and Upper Canada Village Horse Lovers' Weekend and ROW80

Welcome!

This week we're celebrating the release of CassaStorm!


I had one question for Alex...

If you could organize a dream book tour, where would you go/how would you organize it?
Well, I'd hire someone to organize it, that's for sure. We’re traveling the globe – going to New Zealand, back to the Orient and United Kingdom, through the Scandinavian countries... Wait, I'd actually have to make appearances for my books? Well, that doesn't sound like fun!
I could help organize one in Turkey! But not having to make public appearances is the best part of a blog tour!

CassaStorm 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...

"CassaStorm is a touching and mesmerizing space opera full of action and emotion with strong characters and a cosmic mystery." – Edi's Book Lighhouse

"...mesmerizing story of survival, personal sacrifice, tolerance, and compassion. It's a rare jewel that successfully utilizes both character and plot to tell a story of such immense scope and intimate passion..." –Nancy S. Thompson, author of The Mistaken

Meanwhile, speaking of travels... of the non inter-stellar kind... the other day I was on Beth's blog talking about Istanbul!

And I've got more photos from the 19th Century Upper Canada Village! It was Horse Lovers' Weekend a couple of weekends ago and there was lots to see!

Brief ROW80 update - this month's forum exercise is going really well! And I've been typing. If I manage to type every single day between now and 1 November, without one day off, I just might finish typing Captive of the Sea before NaNoWriMo starts and I focus on a whole new story.


Any last minute summer vacations?
Or do you already have plans for autumn (and spring down under!)

Who's doing NaNo this year?

Glad to hear your typing is going well! I wish I could say the same of any writing-type exercise I'm doing. I'm definitely reading more than I'm writing or revising. Next year I look forward to a fresh start with more focus back on writing and less on other things I've been doing with my blog. :D But we'll see ...

Congrats again Alex!!
Dig the photos! You live in a beautiful area.
And thanks for the announcement. Now you know why I prefer traveling the Internet instead.
Shah Wharton said…
Great pictures! And go you on your typing success. Hope you get to finish it all by NANO. I can't do it this year. I'm SOOO far behind on my revisions. :( X
Love the pictures, especially of the pigs. Pigs are noble creatures.

I plan on doing NaNo in November. Good luck to you on it.

Congrats to Alex!

What a beautiful place you visited. And what beautiful horses. I pretty much lived in a stable when I was a kid.

Alex is taking the blogger world by storm, but I'm glad to know there are other things happening too, lol! Love your photos, Deniz. I'm from a horsey family, so particularly appreciated those pics. Black and white pigs! Never seen one!

Hope all chugs along well with you.

Congrats again to Alex!

Looks like you made some new friends at the festival! :)

Definitely count me in for NaNo this year--I can't wait to get started! :)
Donna Hole said…
Hi Deniz. Wow, those are beautiful photos. What a beautiful area you live in. Looks like lots of family fun.

No NaNo for me; I'm hoping to be writing during November, but not to have all that pressure.

Have a good weekend.

I want to read Alex's book so much! I must get book two.

That village looks so grand! What a great chance to get to go there!
Hi Deniz .. lots of photos - but the day looked to be fun with lots of interesting ideas around, let alone scenery, animals and people!

Alex is doing the proverbial run around .. he'd be using all his profits if he actually travelled everywhere .. mind you fun to do?!

Cheers Hilary
Great photos -- seriously must've felt like you'd gone back in time. And way to go, Alex!

Great photos. I love the horses.

I think an in-person tour around the world would be awesome. Tiring, but awesome.
Kim Switzer said…
Wow, so much cool stuff to look at on your blog! I especially love the 19th century village pics.

I am doing NaNo again this year. Gearing up as we speak (type). Good luck getting all your typing done by November 1. I'm rooting for you!

See you in October.

Hehe, our Alex is so shy, isn't he? ;)

Love the pics!
Deniz Bevan said…
Thanks so much for all your lovely comments, everyone :-)

Congratulations again, Alex!
