CassaStorm by Alex J. Cavanaugh

A storm gathers across the galaxy…

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…

The second bit of news is from Nick Wilford. As you may remember, I participated in his blog hop a month ago. He is trying to raise funds for his son to go to a specialty school in Scotland. Andrew, his son, has complex medical needs and it was the only college that Nick could find that would accommodate his special needs. While most colleges in the U.S. meet or exceed the disabled via 504 and ADA, Andrew's needs are profound.

Nick has been blogging and blog hopping since 2011. He chose my "Diaper, Pads, and Back Again" for his anthology and I am honored to be included. Out of over a hundred of bloggers that participated in the blog hop, he chose seventy to include.

The book will launch on March 4th. More details when they become available. Oh, almost forgot the title, Overcoming Adversity - An Anthology for Andrew. Here's to success on the anthology and Andrew going to Scotland!

Keep writing and loving the Lord.
