Today I'm excited to have the Ninja Captain, brilliant mastermind behind IWSG, Alex J. Cavanaugh on my blog. I had to copy and past that because I didn't want to spell his last name wrong. He might send ninja minions after me! Even his author picture is all ninja-like. Is he really just playing guitar or preparing a DEADLY NINJA ATTACK?!
Calm down, there's no threat of ninja attacks today. Alex is here to answer a question and talk about his latest book, CassaStorm. Oh, and if you head over to his blog and comment, you'll be entered to win some cool swag. Who doesn't love swag?????? No one is the answer.
On to the serious business of book pimpage. Alex, tell me, would you buy your own book if you'd never heard of yourself?
Alex: That question gave me a chuckle!
I wrote stories I wanted to read, and after reading the synopsis and glancing at reviews, I’d give them a try. Of course the main thing for me is the cover art. If it’s not amazing, I’ll never read the synopsis anyway. Fortunately, my publisher created three awesome covers! I’d be drawn to the books immediately based on the rocking covers alone.
Hmmm, good answer, good answer. Awesome book covers also attract me. Shiny book covers do as well. I'm like a freaking raccoon. Oh! SHINY! And your book cover does look shiny (although now I'm referencing Firefly as in "Everything is shiny Capt'n.")

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
“Cavanaugh has created wonderfully moving moments of great poignancy… CassaStorm could have been a dark story full of hardship and angst, but instead it's a cleverly balanced story about hope and triumph.”
