The A to Z April Blogging Challenge 2013 is off to a roaring start! Are you guys keeping up? I’m co-hosting it on Amlokiblogs, so drop me a comment there if you have something to say about the challenge itself. On this blog, I’ll be featuring (mostly) indie-published book excerpts for all of April. I love reading, and supporting author-friends, and this is a good way to do both.
Today, for C, I give you a space opera: CassaFire by Alex J Cavanaugh.
This is the third book in a series. His first book was CassaStar, and the sequel, CassaFire — both books are Amazon bestsellers, published by Dancing Lemur Press.
The third in the series, CassaStorm, will be released on September 17, 2013.
Elevator Pitch: A fun filled space opera of romance and adventure, CassaFire harkens back to its 80s influences like Battlestar Galactica, Buck Rogers in the 20th Century, and Star Wars. Family friendly and sure to please fans of classic space opera in the Golden Age Style.
Athee tossed her hair aside and eyed him expectantly. “I thought I’d ride in the cockpit with you.”
“That’s probably not a good idea.”
“That’s the co-pilot’s seat.”
“Do you have a co-pilot?”
“Then this seat is open.”
Byron sighed in exasperation. Releasing her seat, he ran his fingers through his hair. This woman is too stubborn for her own good, he thought.

Cool, thanks for all the book reviews! I hope it wouldn’t be toooo cruel to point out that these here aren’t actually Amazon Best Sellers (I mean, they have an “Amazon Bestsellers Rank”, but so does every single book on Amazon; these may be very good, but they aren’t bestsellers yet!).
This is not a book I would have picked up but after your review……. I’m IN!! I love an action packed book with sarcasm and romance!!
Thank you for visiting my blog. I can barely handle one blog …. .two is impressive!
A to Z Challenge.

Thanks, everyone! Hope all of you enjoy the third one this fall.

Happy A to Z!
Cool excerpt! Much success to Alex with his books 🙂 Thanks for the earlier visit to my blog, Damyanti–always a pleasure to see your name among the commenters 🙂
I haven’t read any of Alex’s books. Maybe soon. Thanks for the intro.
Haha, nice of you to give Cavanagh some coverage within this blog hop he’s helped so much. The book seems to have done very well for him!
Great theme for the Challenge – really appreciate that you show so much support to authors and enjoy introducing them to readers.
Helo, Damyanti! Perfect choice for C. Alex has done really well with his series!
Happy A to Z-ing! from Laura Marcella @ Wavy Lines
Now I want to grab this book 🙂
Classic soap-opera is good 🙂 Good review!
I know I commented. But it disappeared. Love the cover and yay for Star Wars! Good luck to Alex – that excerpt is so tempting!
Great excerpt. Athee clearly takes no crap. I’ve added the series to my to be read list. Thanks for sharing!
Star Wars, Yes! That excerpt was tempting! Damyanti, I am in love with your theme for the A to Z
Great choice for C. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by Tales of a Pee Dee Mama
What, no Firefly reference? “I aim to misbehave!” I wish Alex a TON of luck and big congrats on this third in his trilogy!!!
Love the conversations between Byron and Athee – they are excellent! Alex’s books are brilliant!
Alex is a great writer!
Thanks for stopping by – I love the cover – looks like it could jump out at you.
Alex is too good! Wish you the very best my friend!
Clever class act by Alex to have this class series – thanks for the info – will check it out.
Good.. I have noted all three in my reading list…
Another great book, and I’ve always loved the name of the Carolina states!
Yay for Alex! It was my obvious choice for ‘C’ as well 🙂
I just bought CassaStar the other day. Definitely have this book on my list as the sequel. Alex is both a talented authour and giving blogger. It’s great that this book is on your A-Z posts.
You did pick an excellent choice for “C.” We all know that Alex is a CLASS act.
Tks for the heads up on this book, sounds exactly what I need at this very moment in time. Will go on my to read list.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. Great to meet you.
Loved the first two books, looking forward to his third in September. It’ll be just in time for my birthday LOL

Alex will have another hit on his hands when this comes out.
This one is on my TBR, has been a while! Can’t wait to read all Alex’s books.
There’s romance too? I think I’m sold! 🙂
Thank you, Damy!!
I love that cover. It almost looks 3-D!
Great, great choice for C. I have to get back and check out A & B. Great job!
I love me some space opera…thanks for adding to my reading list!
