This week, the Spotlight was on Alex Cavanaugh and his exciting Sci-Fi novels CassaStar and CassaFire.

CassaStar and CassaFire just recently achieved Best Seller status on Amazon US and UK. These two novels continue to be in the top 15,000 and higher overall status on Amazon US, and are in Amazon UK’s  list of top 100 science fiction novels.

If you haven’t heard of CassaStar and CassaFire, you can check out my review.

Also check out my interview with author Alex Cavanaugh.

Now that we’ve come to an end of another Spotlight Week, it’s time for another GIVEAWAY!

I’m giving away a copy of CassaStar and a copy of Cassa Fire!

To win, just Leave a comment below and tell me why you’d like a copy of the book.

I’ll put all your names in my magical drawing bowl and pick the winner.

But wait!

The more creative your answers are, the more chances you have of winning. If your comment/answer tickles my fancy, I’ll add another slip of paper with your name on it to my drawing bowl.

Why? Because I love encouraging people to unleash their imaginative and creative sides.

Also, if you tweet about this giveaway, or share it on Facebook, I’ll add more slips of papers with your name on it.

  1. Dig that Cat, Alex J. He is the cat meow!

    I don’t need to be entered… I won a great package from Alex a few months ago, yes I am that guy. I got the coffee cup.. and books and more.

  2. I need those books because a witch put a spell on me and I am slowly going blind and I want those books to be the last ones I read.

  3. I mentioned the giveaway on Twitter and Facebook as well made prank phone calls and told some strangers.

  4. I haven’t read his books, yet, and I figure that since we share a love for munching while we write…Alex on hot tamales while I “chain smoke” my carrots like a rabbit on speed…I definitely need a chance to win these books!

  5. L.C. Frost says:

    My Flat Stanley cut-out has gotten sadly misplaced, and I figure a book written by a ninja captain would be a fine companion on my various adventures. Also, such an object would need the capability to fly. I have little doubt CassaStar has that capability built-in.

  6. I just like his covers. No, I didn’t make the phone calls Powdered Toast Man made, so I think he should win this…

  7. Ella says:

    Friday the 13th is a lucky day for me. You can t jinx me… Lady luck is on my side…lol
    Happy Friday to you!

  8. Tyrean says:

    While I own the first one in a “real” paperback copy, I only have Cassafire on my kindle, and it’s just not shareable enough – I want my family and friends to read Alex’s books!

  9. I recently read CassaStar & am anxiously awaiting the sequel. I hate not knowing what happens to Byron & I want to meet the lady in his lonely life. (I’m just too broke to buy it right now.)

  10. I have no air-conditioning. We’re in the middle of a heat wave. No relief in sight. Please put a bright spot in my day by sending a couple of good books my way.

  11. Shelly says:

    Shelly really, really wants to win b/c she’s piss-pot-poor right now. And Alex’s book trailers made me salivate. And b/c I really, really like to read even though I’m slow sometimes. Please, please pick me. Please.

  12. Morgan Shamy says:

    Eeeeeee!!!!! So cool. And I’m laughing at the comments. I just bought CassaStar the other day. I’ve read the prologue and I know I’m going to love it. Alex is too awesome. And what a fabulous contest! 😀

  13. Mary says:

    I have both books. Read CassaStar and am in the middle of CassaFire. So don’t need to enter me. Toast Man sure has a lot of enthusiasm.

  14. Allison says:

    I am also looking forward to meeting the female lead in book 2. And who doesn’t need more space pilots in their lives? Byron might come after Han and Wash in my books… but he’s still pretty awesome to behold.

  15. Lisa Regan says:

    Because I find Alex very intriguing and I’m very interested to know what kinds of fictional worlds this veritable blogging deity has created! Also, I heard they were really good and I heard that from people who don’t normally read sci-fi so that’s pretty impressive.

  16. TerryToes says:

    My grandson Caden is an advanced reader. He loves sci-fi. He never asks me to get him anything. He enjoys drawing with me. I don’t spend money on him because I can’t. He says my time is a valuable gift! I’d love to give him, not only the books, because I know we will read them and share our stories about them, but also because I see that Caden can write to Alex and Alex will write back, and that is the most valuable aspect of the exchange! Caden also batted .497 in Pony League, and his all-star team is playing Arizona next week too!!!

  17. I just Tweeted your post. And I have both copies. But you you have a CassaStar coffee cup, then pencil me in for one of those!

  18. I’m commenting only to support you all. Don’t enter me in the contest because, I ALREADY OWN BOTH BOOKS. Yahoo. Make some other reader really happy. And I’m with Stephen. Coffiee cups???

  19. I can’t think of anyone who deserves the spotlight more than our favorite Ninja blogger and sci fi author, Alex J. Cavanaugh. Thanks for the great coverage and the giveaway.

  20. Cecilia says:

    Oh, this is cool. I haven’t read Alex’s book, would love to have a chance to read them. And it’s Sci-fi. This is great!

  21. Leslie Rose says:

    Love Alex’s blog and the books have always intrigued me. It’s time to knuckle down and dive into them. Since I’m mentally in outer space most of the time, I know I’ll love them.

  22. Nutschell, good luck choosing! Some of these are awesome.

    Thanks, everyone. I’m really touched.

  23. deniz says:

    Me! Me! I’d love a copy because I don’t have one yet and I’d love to read something in this genre.

  24. Ella says:

    Terry Toes rocks~ If she doesn’t win…I’ll send her the first book, for Caden. The second book in on my Kindle. If I won, I was going to mail them to my nephew. He is a Marine stationed in Japan.

  25. Ciara Knight says:

    These are awesome books. Good luck everyone. Don’t enter me, I already have my copies.

  26. RaveAir says:

    I’d like to win CassaFire, because I read the CassaStar and loved it very much. I want to read the sequel of it. So, do not hesitate to choose me! 😉

  27. baygirl32 says:

    CassaStar is already on my Kobo, really enjoyed it!

    I never win anything :)

    best of luck to everyone entering, and good luck chooseing

  28. Justine Dell says:

    Well, my reason is simple…besides the fact that I would trek over mountains filled with eye-eating gorillas and through the jungle that sucks out your soul to get a good copy of a great book….my daughter and I can’t share. Everytime we buy a book, we must have a copy on the Kindle and hard copy. We are so selfish. :-)


  29. michelle says:

    I’d REALLY REALLY like to win because I’m sci-fi challenged, I’ve never read a sci-fi novel in my life… but I reckon that the Cassa series will be the turning point… the moment of conversion… :)

  30. Kathleen says:

    I would love to win these books because I have NOT read them yet, even though they are both on my wish list. The main reason I want to win them though is because I am almost finished with my rocket ship and need something for the journey to prove that Stargates do exist, but they were all taken over by the Cylons. It’s going to be a long ride and what better way to live the sci-fi dream than with some awesome sci-fi books?
