Are You as Exicited as I am??? Cassatorm- Taking the World by Storm

The real Alex!
I've been a huge fan of Alex J. Cavanaugh's series for years. Now comes the third book in the series hot off the presses tomorrow. Yes, I pre-ordered it and all giddy inside awaiting its arrival. Since Alex announced he was writing it and it was due for publication, I've gone back and reread the previous two books to refresh my mind of the characters. I'm expecting new excitements and twists with this new book. And knowing Alex's writing style, I won't be disappointed.

I had a chance to catch Alex in all the pre-pub flurry to ask him some questions

1) How would you feel if your books were optioned for film and was sliced and diced as World War Z?

I think I would go into hiding and take up serious drinking. Although it would be worse if the SyFy Channel got a hold of them!

2) What was your first prompt to write in the first place?

I wrote so I could read the stories I couldn’t find anywhere else.

3) You are such a multi-talented fellow, tell us about your music.

Music has always been a part of my life, but I didn’t pick up the guitar until a few years ago. Now I play in a Christian band and it’s just amazing.

 Thanks Alex for taking time to answer a nagging fan!

Now about this new book being launched

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…
