Cassastorm: Biggest take away in writing a trilogy.

Congrats to Alex on the release of the last book of his space opera trilogy! Here’s the question I asked him.

Looking back, what’s the biggest lesson or take-away you learned writing a trilogy?

Alex: Plan ahead! This would’ve been easier had I intended for it to be a series. I might have written the other two books much sooner and been ready.

CassaStorm

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…

“CassaStorM is a touching and mesmerizing space opera full of action and emotion with strong characters and a cosmic mystery.”– Edi’s Book Lighhouse

“Cavanaugh makes world building on the galactic scale look easy. The stakes affect the entire known universe and yet Cavanaugh makes it intensely personal for our hero. The final installment of this series will break your heart and put it back together.”
– Charity Bradford, science fantasy author of The Magic Wakes

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…

Friday 5 – Changing with the times, blogging, and chocolate chip cookies.

Friday 5 – Changing with the times, blogging, and chocolate chip cookies.

1. Just in case you didn’t know – which how could you not – Alex J. Cavanaugh’s sophomore book, Cassafire was released! He’s in the middle of a blog tour so go check him out if you like science fiction. (And everyone says, yeah, no kidding, Laura.)

2. My blog will be changing with me. I’ve given this a lot of thought now for weeks. I don’t do anything without a plan or research. Starting next week my blogging schedule will be morphing. On Mondays I’ll post about anything and everything related to my tagline: Savvy Spies, Murder and Mystery. I mean anything. Writing posts. Guest posts. Book reviews. Movies. Fun tidbits. Background information on A Spy Like Me. You name it.

On Thursdays I’ll be blogging about the changing industry and my self-publishing journey from the decision to ISBNs to marketing. I hope to bring in more experienced authors for guest posts. Because I never want anything to be just about me. But some of you have been curious.

And on Wednesdays and Fridays you’ll see the occasional blog tour post because a big part of the reason I started blogging was to support my friends and their books.

3. If any of you out there have the recipe for the perfect chocolate chip cookie, I’m open to it. Leave the recipe in the comments. Or email me. Seriously.

4. I downloaded Talli Roland’s book, Build A Man. And totally fell for the first chapter. Can’t wait to read the rest.

5. And next Monday I’ll be revealing my cover over at YA CONFIDENTIAL. Yay! (And they’re having a huge giveaway right now) Thanks so much to the secret agents who run that blog. And here on Monday, I’ll offer a sneak peek at A Spy Like Me, and a giveaway to celebrate!

Extras:

Enough about me. Give me the scoop on you. Anything new?
