Cover for Alex J. Cavanaugh's CassaStorm!!!

Blogger and sci-fi writer extraordinaire, Alex J. Cavanaugh is at it again, ready to release another in his epic sci-fi, space opera series. I am happy to take part in his cover reveal celebration.
Check it out! What do you think? Pretty space-cool, right? Below is a blurb and info on its release date. Check out Alex's blog and follow, if you're not already! He's one of the most generous, community-minded bloggers around. Oh, and a ninja warrior to boot!

Info on Cassa Storm:

Byron thought he’d put the days of battle behind him. Commanding the Cassan base on Tgren, his only struggles are occasional rogue pirate raids and endless government bureaucracies. 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, shaking Bassan to the core and 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 be on its way back. As his world begins to crumble, Byron suspects a connection. The storm is about to break, and Byron is caught in the middle…

  2. Very nice cover. Think I'll hop over to Alex's blog. Thanks, Catherine.

  3. Yup, I like this cover best of all the Cassa ones. I like the action in the sky, yet how sort of subtle the color is with all of the gray tones.
