Alex Cavanaugh's CassaStorm cover is A-MAZE-ING, isn't it? The other covers are just as killer, but this one is a powerful one, huh? I love it. Congrats to Alex. Anyway, here's the book description:
Byron thought he’d put the days of battle behind him. Commanding the Cassan base on Tgren, his only struggles are occasional rogue pirate raids and endless government bureaucracies. 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, shaking Bassan to the core and 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 be on its way back. As his world begins to crumble, Byron suspects a connection. The storm is about to break, and Byron is caught in the middle…
Go Alex. The book comes out September 13 of this year so stay tuned for more info on that.
And Ziggy Marley
To celebrate, I know Alex is a musician at heart so I thought I'd post this video of Ziggy Marley and his band jamming at SOBEWFF. What a great concert. Please forgive the amateur video. I did my best trying to capture one aspect of a great evening. Enjoy.
