Catching Fire Party!!!

The novel CassaFire is on FIRE!!!  

CassaFire, the sequel to CassaStar was released TODAY to the public. The author, Alex J. Cavanaugh was very pleased with how CassaStar turned out and he hopes that CassaFire will achieve the same and even more! I haven't had the chance to get it yet but I hopefully am getting it this weekend. 

CassaStar was just the beginning…

The Vindicarn War is a distant memory and Byron’s days of piloting Cosbolt fighters are over. He has kept the promise he made to his fallen mentor and friend - to probe space on an exploration vessel. Shuttle work is dull, but it’s a free and solitary existence. The senior officer is content with his life aboard the Rennather. 

The detection of alien ruins sends the exploration ship to the distant planet of Tgren. If their scientists can decipher the language, they can unlock the secrets of this device. Is it a key to the Tgren’s civilization or a weapon of unimaginable power? Tensions mount as their new allies are suspicious of the Cassan’s technology and strange mental abilities. 

To complicate matters, the Tgrens are showing signs of mental powers themselves; the strongest of which belongs to a pilot named Athee, a woman whose skills rival Byron’s unique abilities. Forced to train her mind and further develop her flying aptitude, he finds his patience strained. Add a reluctant friendship with a young scientist, and he feels invaded on every level. All Byron wanted was his privacy…

“This sequel to Cavanaugh's first novel, CassaStar, delivers on the promise of its predecessor, combining military action sequences and political intrigue with strong, memorable characters. Reminiscent of the action-driven stories of Robert A. Heinlein's early fiction…” - Library Journal

Until March 9th, anyone who comments on any of Alex's blog posts will be entered to win a copy of both CassaFire and CassaStar, a large tote back, and a mug. You can also help spread the word by tweeting with the hashtag #CatchFire.

Divination Preview

Hey guys! So I thought that I might as well give you the first chapter of Divination as a preview for what I have coming up. So without further adu, I give you the first chapter of Divination :)

Chapter 1

Years ago, the Gods of Egypt and the Gods of Greece had a war. The great leader of the Greek Gods, Zeus, was the only survivor. His Brothers and Sisters fought valiantly until the final straw when the Egyptians summoned the power of Anubis, the god of the dead second to Osiris, who then preformed the Opening of The Mouth ceremony. Anubis was the only Egyptian God survivor. Decades later, a great evil rose upon the earth and it would take the power of both Zeus and Anubis to defeat it.
“Ryan wake up, it’s time for school” yelled Ryan’s mother from the bottom of the stairs.
“Alright mom I’m up. Give me five minutes and then I will be downstairs for breakfast.”
Ryan Storm is your average teenage boy who loves to have fun with friends and relax and enjoy the humid weather of California. Ryan is around five foot eight and has wavy blond hair which is sometimes covered by a hat. It is fairly easy to tell Ryan’s mood because his eyes are a clear blue color which occasionally change to ocean foam green.
Ryan quickly threw on a pair of dark blue jeans and a black V-neck with gray lines going across it. Before going downstairs, Ryan slipped on his black DC shoes when he suddenly realized he should be downstairs. When he reached the bottom of the stairs, Ryan’s mom started getting stressed because they were not on time.
“Ryan were late! Eat your cereal and drink your orange juice quickly because school starts in 10 minutes.”
Finishing his breakfast, Ryan gets into his moms car and drives to school not knowing that what he will soon encounter will change his life. When he arrives to school he is greeted by his world history teacher, Mr. A. Mr. A greets Ryan with a hello and in response Ryan responds with a friendly hello. Although Ryan has many classes and teachers, he favors Mr. A’s class the most because Ryan has always felt a close connection with the world as a whole but mainly what his class is currently studying, Mythology.
During 3rd period, the intercom turns on and Ms. Roberts calls Ryan to the office. On his way to the office, Ryan is wondering what he could have possibly done to be called to the office. Little does he know that what he is about to encounter with change his life forever.
When Ryan walked into the office he was greeted by Ms. Roberts who was in charge of the front desk. “Hello Ryan.” She said. “Mr. Ward is waiting for you in his office. Shall I see to you the way?”
“No thank you.” exclaimed Ryan. “I know my way.”
Ryan passed behind the front desk and walked through a long narrow hallway with a white wallpaper and blue carpet which included many photos on the walls. Upon reaching the office door, Ryan took a quick in-and-out breath and walked into Mr. Ward’s office.
“Ah Mr. Storm. Please have a seat. We have business to discuss.” So Mr. Storm, do you know why you are here?”
“No Sir. I have no clue whatsoever as to why I am here because I know I have not done anything wrong.”
“That is correct but I believe it is what you yet have to do. Let me explain. This morning I received a letter from an unknown person which was entitled for you. For your safety, I opened it to make sure it was not vulgar or threatening in any manor because it was from an unknown sender. I only read the first line or so but what I read in that letter I believe was for your eyes only so I apologize in advance for reading what was meant for you. Here, why don’t you read it for yourself.”
Ryan took the letter out of Mr. A’s hand and started reading.

To Mr. Ryan Storm.
Dearest Ryan,
You do not know who I am but I know who you are. I have been watching and on looking you your whole life. I guess you can consider me as a guardian. Now, what I am about to tell you is very important so you best sit down. You Ryan have the blood of the Gods. Yes you heard me right. Have you ever wondered why your mother kept your fathers last name, Storm? Have you ever wondered why your mother always tries encouraging you to study Greek mythology? This is because your father is the god of the storms. Well actually he is the god of the sky, storms, and all of Olympus. Yes Ryan, your father is Zeus – Leader of the Gods.
Now I know this is a lot to take in but please hear me out. A great evil has come over the world but it is too powerful even for Zeus. I must make this short because the Gods would be angry. For further information go to your history teacher Mr. A and tell him this – The past and present matter none, but the future is what matters. Speaking these words will clue him into your knowledge of this message. Good luck Ryan, and whatever you think, there is no going back now.
Warmest Regards,
A Close Friend

I have also been writing nonstop since I got home so let's say a good four plus hours. I'd say I covered a lot. I finished up two new chapters, wrote a total of 12 pages and did some more research :) It's been fun but my hands are starting to ache :P I just started a new chapter so I might leave it there and pick it up tomorrow. So yea... Schools done for the rest of the week, I have tomorrow to do some more writing. HOPEFULLY Divination will be released in August of 2012 :D That's only 5 and a half months away!!! I still have about 60,000 words to go but I think I can do it :)

Also I am getting a domain for this site so say bye bye to the annoying .blogspot.com thing and hello to just plain old .com :) Besides that, I am searching the web for someone to make the cover for Divination. I have some people in mind but when I find one, I will have to go through a long process and then I can guarantee that it will go straight up on the blog asap :)

Well anyways have a good night? :P Enjoy your Friday tomorrow and don't forget you #FF 's on twitter :)
