CassaStorm by Alex J. Cavanaugh
A storm gathers across the galaxy…
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…

Big time congrats to Alex on his upcoming release. The cover looks downright amazing and I'm sure it's going to be a huge success.
Alex is a heck of a guy and always there to lend support, advice, or to remind you to turn off your word verification on your comments. Not that he had to do that for me, or anything.....ahem
Anyway, here's wishing Mr. Cavanaugh much success and best wishes, all around!
Friday also means another update for the ongoing saga that is, The Healthy Writer's Club.
Hosted by Shallee McArthur, it's a weekly roundup that lets us writers/bloggers, discuss what healthy choices we're making regarding diet, exercise, and fitness.....or what choices we should be making. While blogging and writing is hard work, to be sure, it doesn't really burn all that many calories or help tone the muscles. Getting out of the chair is just the first step....
This week, I actually dusted off the old weight machine and got in a good workout. Only once, mind you, but it's something more than I had been doing.
I'm still keeping track of my caloric progress via MyFitnessPal and it's been invaluable to me in regards to actually thinking about what I'm eating. It's a great tool, easy to use, and has a phone app, too! If you're looking for friends there, my name is mmeans68.
The more support, the better!
I hope you all have a great Friday and an even better weekend.
