Taking the world by (CASSA)Storm !! Alex J. Cavanaugh

Today's post doesn't really need an intro, so let's just get on with it shall we? :) (Psssst! Check the end of this post for my interview question and Alex's answer!).

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…

The trilogy complete!

Now, what you've ALL been waiting for. My question and Alex's answer!

Q: You've said this may be your last book, and your future dedicated to music - can we expect an album release in future? 
A: Only if my band starts writing our own music! At the moment we perform other artists’ work – Christian and secular rock bands and praise and worship music. Not sure my nerves could handle a recording session anyway.

So there ya go. It wasn't exactly a no, but I wouldn't say we can expect a double CD full of epic Christian prog metal tracks anytime soon. ;) I won't give up hope though!


  1. Sounds like an awesome read! Congratulations to Alex--I love the book trailer--short and intense :-)

  2. I would SO LOVE to hear Alex play! I'm sure he's way too modest with his skills. Fab post. Love the Alex party today! :)

  3. Maybe Alex's band needs to start writing their own material.
    If Alex can handle these book blog tours, then he can handle anything... even a recording session.
    Give yourself more credit Alex!

  4. Thank you, Trisha!
    And Epic Ninja Fail - I thought I was following you. Fixed that!

  5. great question, trish! and i didnt realize alexs music genre. good to know if i ever finish writing one of my christian rock songs!

  6. Bet your band will help keep your nerves in check if you guys do go in that direction. Congrats Alex.

  7. I think a Ninja Band would be difficult...especially when you tried to catch them with a spotlight :)

  8. I'd love to hear Alex play too. Great question!
    Awesome to see him everywhere this week. :)

  9. Maybe Alex will make a youtube video for us all to watch! Thanks for the post, Trisha. Congrats Alex!

  10. The band must be great stress relief from the writing!


  11. Congrats again to Alex! And what a great question! Well, if an album does show up around the corner, it will be very exciting :)


Thanks for your words, me hearties! and don't forget to leave a link to your blog somewhere I can find it!
