CassaStorm Launch Week! Awesome Tour Stops and Prizes! Plus Cassa Facts, Cassa Trivia, and Ninja News

I was incredibly honored when Natalie asked to be part of my tour. Literary Rambles is a HUGE site, focusing on children’s and young adult books. Today’s stop is an interview at Literary Rambles, focusing on my books and blogging tips. Natalie, really appreciate it!


For those who don’t blog on the weekend, I was also honored with a guest post at a Writer’s Digest Best Site - Anne R Allen’s Blog - where I outlined how to create an online community. Anne often features New York Times best-selling authors, so it was an incredible privilege to contribute to her site. Thanks, Anne!!


And CassaStorm’s release week kicks off with prizes every day! Comment between September 16 and 20 to enter. (Ends 6:00 pm EST Sunday, September 22.)
Prizes include:
Cassa mousepad
Cassa Universe poster
Cassa magnet
Cassa mug
Autographed copy of CassaStorm
One person will be randomly selected each day and the five names will be drawn from a hat – first person gets first choice and so on.

This week I will be featuring my tour, unique Cassa facts, trivia, and prizes every day. Plus others are announcing CassaStorm’s release, and almost every post features a unique interview question. List of participants on the CassaStorm Page. So join the fun!

And tomorrow night is the RUSHED Twitter party! Between 8:00 and 9:00 pm EST, follow the hashtag #RUSHED for an hour of fun, questions, answers, treasure hunts, and giveaways. Hosted by the awesome Lynn Rush and featuring giveaways from both of us. It’s my first ever Twitter party, so I hope someone shows up!

Cassa Facts

One of the influences on my first book was the original Battlestar Galactica series. (As Bob so aptly nailed in his review.)

When I rewrote the story several years ago, I still envisioned the Galactica’s fighters when describing the Cassan’s Cosbolts. In the first round of edits with my publisher, they suggested I alter the ships and make them more unique. While I didn’t picture them exactly as the cover artist depicted, they still came out rather cool.

And I still got to use that basic design for the smaller Dartens!

Battlestar Galactica’s fighters weren’t the only idea I used. In the series, Apollo had a sister, Athena. I shortened the name and came up with Athee. (So, for those of you still wondering how to pronounce Athee, it’s Athena without the ‘na.’)

Cassa Trivia!


Since it was an early influence, here is some original Battlestar Galactica trivia for you!


1 – What was the name of the Galactica’s fighters?

2 – Boxey had a mechanical daggit for a pet – what was its name?

3 – Who played Starbuck?

4 – Four pilots were in almost every episode – Captain Apollo, Lt. Starbuck, Lt. Boomer, and Flight Sgt. ____

5 – Who played Serina, Boxey’s mother, in the first three episodes?

6 – At the time, it was the most expensive television show ever. How much did each episode cost to make?

7 – Who was the head writer and executive producer of the series?

One more day! Don’t forget to leave a comment to be entered in the drawing. Big thanks to all who are announcing this week.

See any good blogfests or opportunities? Anyone else watch the original Battlestar Galactica? Know any of the trivia? Placing bets on whether I sleep tonight or not…?

Please be sure to visit Literary Rambles! And Anne R Allen’s Blog if you missed it yesterday.

Optimistic Existentialist said...

I didn't know that Battlestar Galactica was an inspiration for your books. Cool! That's one of my favorite shows of all-time.

Karen Walker said...

You have, indeed, taken the blogging world by storm, Alex. So happy for you. Sorry I won't be around to watch this incredibly journey you launched today. I'm unplugging while in South Africa. Have fun, okay?

There's definitely a strong BSG flavor to CassaStorm.

Everywhere you are, congrats by far.

DAVID WALSTON said...

Once for Halloween I went as a Cylon.It was cardboard with tinfoil, but it was great.

One word for sleep, Melatonin.

Gail said...

Congratulations and wishing you great success.

J.L. Murphey said...

If I had my choice of prizes I'd choose a first edition, autographed copy of CassaStorm to go into my first edition library.

Just so you know, Alex... you'd be joining authors like Jack McDevitt, Clive Cussler, Diana Gabaldon, Issac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke to name a few.

I've watched both Battlestars...prefer the first.

My bet is you'll be staying up later than usual strumming your guitar.

Annalisa Crawford said...

Congratulations Alex, have a great week!

Tyrean Martinson said...

Go Ninja Captain Alex!!!!

All sorts of awesome going on in blogworld!

Happy week Alex! I'm thilled to be a little part of it. (I worked on my blog all day yesterday and finally figured a way to get the comment form back up.) I did lose all the comments that were ever on my blog though. :( I'll post my question today.

Thanks for advertising for Lynn. See you over at Natalie's place later. I'm teaching homeschool right now. Ha. *waves peace sign*

Leovi, your photo was awesome!

Robyn, glad you got the comment box working again!

Brandon and Bryan, thanks!

Christine - yes!

TS, you need to, if only for the laughs.

Stephen, I'd appreciate the support.

D.G. Hudson said...

Congrats Alex - nice seeing your third book making the rounds.

btw - excellent idea to vary what is sent to participants. Variety is nice.

~Sia McKye~ said...

Alex, I enjoyed your piece Anne Allen's blog. :-)

Another pretty cover for Rashelle!

I enjoyed Battlestar Galatica. I thought the Vipers were ultra cool. Loved Muffit! I've always liked Loren Greene (and his voice) and thought he did well as Adama in this series, but then it was shades of Pa from the Ponderosa and a bit more danger/adventure. I'll admit, I had a crush on Viper pilot Starbuck and thought Dirk Benedict brought a certain cockiness that fit with the fighter pilots I knew (Hubs was attached to a squadron in the Navy so I knew quite a few). Richard Hatch (Apollo) was good looking but he got on my nerves now and then, lol! I don't remember many of the characters but I remember being ticked that they wrote Jane Seymour (Serina) out of the series.

Sia McKye Over Coffee

J.L. Campbell said...

Congrats, Alex. Here's to a successful tour. Congrats also to the other writers mentioned with new releases.

Rusty Webb said...

Congrats again. It's going to be a great week for you! I have no idea about the trivia. I never liked Battlestar as much as everyone else did. Weird of me, I know.

Nancy Thompson said...

Congrats, Alex! And oh yes, I watched BG & had a huge crush on Apollo & Starbuck! Hey, I was 15 at the time.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Michael, it was a little before your time.

Appreciate that, David! Looking forward to your book in the near future.

Julie, thanks!

DG, that was the idea. Make each one a little different.

Sia, and you obviously nailed most of the questions as well!

Thanks, everyone!

Leovi said...

It's nice and interesting to discover the sources of inspiration!

A. B. said...

Happy Release week.

I've come to inquire about a bridge...

ilima said...

Wow. Getting on Literary Rambles is huge. Congrats!

I've watched the original but prefer the newer BSG. Also, here is one of my favorite pics of all time...haha:

Mark Means said...

I would say 'best of luck with the tour', but I know you won't need luck and it'll be fantastic for you :)

Finally! Some trivia I know :D

1. Vipers
2. Muffit
3. The awesome Dirk Benedict
4. Jolly
5. Jane Seymour
6. A million dollars (?)
7. Glenn A Larsen

(O.k, I guessed at some of them :P )

Rissa said...

Wow! Congrats! You're such an inspiration!

Matthew MacNish said...

Congrats, Alex!

Al Diaz said...

I didn't miss an episode of the original Galactica. It was my favorite series. At the time, I would have been able to answer all of your trivia questions but my memory is not what it used to be. Good thing Mark Means just got saved me the effort. Go Mark!

Do Ninjas wear hats????

Tammy Theriault said...

So glad I got to help launch the vomit comet party!!!

Lydia Kang said...

Love Literary Rambles! Natalie is awesome. :)

Robin said...

Alex, you are EVERYWHERE today. Congratulations!!! How does it feel to be releasing your third child into the world????

I had a terrible crush back on Dirk Benedict in the day. I barely remember the show even though I watched it faithfully. I think I was ten or so at the time. I would do better with questions about the Battlestar remake...

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Rusty, dare to be weird.

Nancy, won't tell you what I thought of a certain blonde on that show...

AB, it's the London Bridge! Newly remodeled. You'll dig it. Make me an offer.

Ilima, that is too funny.

Mark, you nailed it!! All correct.

Al, I never missed an episode. Ninjas wear hoods. Which is good, as I look awful in a hat.

Tammy, your post was awesome!

Thanks, guys!

Mina Burrows said...

Posting my CS Post on Wed! Wahoo!

Heading the LR now. Congrats to Cherie & Helen. :)

Maurice Mitchell said...

The storm begins! Great guest article Alex. Community gives back as much as it takes.

Jeremy [Retro] said...

the storm approaches... i am glad to be caught up in the excitement. great day, really great day!

klahanie said...

Hey Alex,

All the best with your ongoing tour, good sir.

I watched the original version of Battlestar Galactica. I even saw the full-length movie that introduced the upcoming TV show. Here's some interesting stuff about that show and another show.

Did you realise that it was a couple of Canadians who basically sorted out the universe? Please allow me to explain. Captain James T. Kirk (William Shatner) of Star Trek fame, is Canadian. You remember this famous line? 'Space... the Final Frontier. These are the voyages of the starship 'Canada eh'. Then again, there was also Commander Adama, (Lorne Greene) another Canadian trying to get things sorted out in space and the leader of a noble mission. Do you recall him saying this? "Fleeing from the Cylon tyranny, the last Battlestar, 'Galacticanada', leads a ragtag, fugitive fleet, on a lonely quest—for a shining planet known as Earth." So there you go, some overwhelming 'proof' just how vital Canadians have been in our space type adventures.

Cheers,

Gary

Steven said...

My CassaStorm post goes up tomorrow!

LOVE battlestar galactica. LOVE. And WOW you're busy...

Suze said...

Hmm, maybe I'd pick the mug over the magnet ...

Congratulations, Al! What a terrific week for you. :)

Roland D. Yeomans said...

Six hours a day! And at work, too. My blood center frowns at me commenting on blogs while I'm driving for some silly reason.

Your Blog Storm is the best kind of storm. I know your sales will soar into the stars. Ouch. I couldn't resist. I know. I should have tried harder. :-)

Empty Nest Insider said...

I'll check out literary rambles later today. Congrats on a great start to an amazing week Alex!

Julie

Sherry Ellis said...

I've never been to a Twitter party. I'll see if I can make it. Congratulations on your release! I'm sure it will be a huge success!

Kristin Lenz said...

My head is spinning as I explore your blog. Thanks for your post at Literary Rambles, and best of luck with your new release.

Andrew Leon said...

Did you know that the guy that developed Galactica was one of the head special effects guys on A New Hope? When he left Lucas he, basically, stole a bunch of the technology. The similarity in look of Galactica to Star Wars caused many lawsuits to be leveled against Lucas because they thought he was responsible for the TV series.

Not following comments today, so you'll have to email me if you have questions/comments.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Robin, both exciting and a relief!

Gary, without Canadians, we'd still be stuck here on earth!

Mark, you got one!

Moody - maybe!

Jolene, always.

Roland, they frown on that? Can't imagine why...

Sherry, hope you can!

Thanks, Kristin! I know, overload...

Clarissa Draper said...

Can't wait to buy the book!

Suzanne Furness said...

Rocking around the blogosphere, Alex! Have a fabulous week.

Scribbles From Jenn said...

Only one week to go? How exciting. I bet it's even better than waiting for Christmas!

I've never been to a Twitter party, that sounds fun. I may have to tweet during my critique group meeting. He-he-he.

Rachel Morgan said...

Release week! Yay! Congratulations! Hope the Twitter party is fun. Sadly, I won't be able to "attend" as I'll be asleep at that time!

JJ said...

I must check out Anne's blog. Thanks.

Julie Flanders said...

Such an exciting week for you!! Congratulations! I don't know if I've been to Anne's blog before, heading over now to check that out.

Gwen Gardner said...

Congrats on CassaStorm, Alex. I'll stop by Natalie's blog to check out your interview :)

M Pax said...

Congrats Alex!! Wooo hooo!

Jemi Fraser said...

I was a huge BG fan - both old and new series - but as usual, I stink at trivia :)

Ash-Matic said...

I have to put my hand up and confess I only know the new Battlestar, which won me over pretty quick.

I keep telling myself I'll get around to watching all the old stuff, but I'm not sure I'll ever have the time for it. I still need to check out stuff like Babylon 5, which I hear is the tits.

Crystal Collier said...

Shame on me for taking a sick day and missing all this awesome! Congrats, Alex! I've seen the cover and blurb up a few places already, and it looks amazing.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Jemi, at least you watched the show.

Ash, watch old Stargate SG1 - much better.

Thanks, Crystal! No worries.

Helena said...

Congratulations on CassaStorm, Alex dear! I'm sorry to say I never watched Battlestar Galactica, but I doubt that will keep me from enjoying your Cassa trilogy.

Helen Ginger said...

Fabulous post, Alex. You are amazingly busy.

Couldn't answer the Battlestar Galactica questions -- and I watched the show! Too long ago for me.

Cathrina Constantine said...

Okay, I loved Battlestar Galactica! It was flight sergeant jolly. viper pilots, and serina was played by jane seymour. that's all I got, alex. Congratulations a day early on your big release. Posting you on my blog tonight.

Beverly Fox said...

Congrats on the launch, Alex! I'm super excited to be featuring you tomorrow- it's gonna be great!

I'm looking forward to doing Spooktoberfest again! I love any excuse to do a piece of flash fiction.

LynNerdKelley said...

Battlestar Galactica was a cool TV show. That's neat that it influenced you in writing your book. Your guest post on Anne Allen's blog was really good!

Thank you for announcing the Emblazon giveaway. Much appreciated, Alex.

I'm publishing my CassaStorm post tomorrow. So awesome to be a part of your launch!

The Words Crafter said...

Wow, those are some impressive sites you're being featured on, CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!

I'm doing my post tomorrow-the official launch day.

I loved Battlestar Galactica! As for the trivia....hmmmm. Dirk Benedict. Jayne Seymore. Lorne Michaels?

Anyway, congratulations, Alex. This is a HUGE accomplishment!

mshatch said...

Trivia:

#3 Richard Hatch, who also played a recurring role in the new and frakking awesome Battlestar Galactica. Loved both your guest posts/interviews at Ann's and Literary Rambles :)

Kim Lajevardi said...

Congrats on the release, Alex! Glad my blog could offer some little boost for your book.

Gosh, the questions about Battlestar Galactica brought back watching the show from when I was a kid. I couldn't answer the questions now without re-watching an episode of two, but when I heard the names, I had a serious case of deja vu. :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Cathrina, you did good!

Lynn, you're welcome.

Words, you got two!

MsHatch - close!

Kim, thanks for your support.

Angela Brown said...

I'm just so excited for you. This trilogy is coming to an end. The online community is wonderful and I'm thrilled to share in such awesome space with you and other great writers around the world :-)
