CATCH FIRE: The Launch of CassaFire

Join the Party!
                                                                                


Today we are celebrating Alex J. Cavanaugh's new book release entitled CassaFire. It is the sci-fi sequel to the critically acclaimed CassaStar. You can read them in order, or work backwards; either way you'll be hooked. Everyone who comments at Alex's Blog over the next two weeks is eligible to receive a spectacular tote bag filled with prizes that are out of this world!

I first met Alex last year when he was co-hosting the A to Z Blogging Challenge. He immediately  welcomed me, and popped in whenever he could in between visiting the vast array of other bloggers. My first impression was that he appeared to be friendly and mild-mannered. Little did I know that he possessed strengths of a super blogger.

Known as Ninja Captain Alex, he works at the speed of light empowering bloggers from all around the world. With over 1300 followers, he's on a mission to lend a helping hand. He founded The Insecure Writer's Support Group, as well as hosting and co-hosting several blog-hops to enable bloggers to join forces.

Like Batman, Alex has never shown his face. He is humble about his accomplishments, while graciously showcasing other authors. The man of mystery is able to comment within seconds after a blog is posted, without a single typo. He is able to swoop from blog to blog, fearlessly joining in on every subject.

For all we know, Byron the space opera protagonist in CassaFire is the real Alex J. Cavanaugh. Hence, the extremely likable, down to earth man with the computer skills of an octopus, may be an ingenious work of fiction. Alex or Byron? Visit the blog, buy the book, be in control...

  5. Of course I have heard of Alex and the Insecure Writer's Group although I have yet to take part - except vicariously as I read other people's posts and comment :) So exciting about his new book - I'll have to check them both out!

  6. I think Alex really does have octopus arms. How else does he get to so many blogs in one day?

  10. Tonja - Interns do make more sense, but I'm standing by my octopus theory!

  11. I seriously do NOT know how Alex manages to do that, be one of the first commenters every single time! With everyone!! He's absolutely amazing. And so dedicated. I have a bit of a writerly crush on him, I must admit. He's the nicest guy out here in Bloggyland. All the blogs dedicated to his book release today are testament to that. HE. IS. AWESOME!!
