Taking the World by Storm! Byron Does Match.Com

After I read CassaStar, I confessed to Alex, author of this awesome sci-fi trilogy, that I had a crush on Byron. A protective, caring friend, Alex warned me that Byron isn't good relationship material. This got me thinking...What would Byron's personal ad look like had he joined match.com before meeting Athee? Something like this, perhaps?
 
Help launch my unit!  
Male Cassan in Search of Alien Female of any cellestrial body. 
For: partnership in the trillion-mile high club. Likes: Touching down on unknown regions, Milky Way bars, and Twilight Forever: The Complete Saga.  
Pet-peeves: Eye contact, bean sprouts, Candy Crush, and Martha Stewart Living. Hobbies: Teleportation, aggravation, exploration, and mastur - I mean, mastering the art of navigation.
    I'm equally comfortable in a formal Oscar De Grouch spacesuit or Fruit of Doom briefs that accentuate my asteroids. Join me in long walks along the galaxies, extra-terrestrial exorcisms, and out-of-this-world penetration. Text me; I'm not on Facebook.
                                                      ----
This is the first and only sci-fi I've read. I LOVED CassaStar and CassaFire. CassaStorm was released yesterday! CONGRATULATIONS, ALEX! I can't wait to read it, though I'm still a tad jealous of Athee.

 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…

“With a talent for worldbuilding and a compelling cast of characters, Alex J. Cavanaugh combines high powered space battles and the challenges of family dynamics to provide readers a space opera with heart.”
- Elizabeth S. Craig, author of the Southern Quilting and Myrtle Clover mysteries

“I thought the revelation was going to be one thing and I was completely wrong … CassaStorm pushes the limits…”
- Tyson Mauermann, Speculative Reviews

“…mesmerizing story of survival, personal sacrifice, tolerance, and compassion. It’s a rare jewel that successfully utilizes both character and plot to tell a story of such immense scope and intimate passion…” - Nancy S. Thompson, author of The Mistaken

  1. This was so clever, and such fun to read Robyn! Though it was difficult to choose, "no eye contact" and the "trillion-mile high club" were my favorites! Who cares that Byron is already taken, living in another galaxy, and well just a fictional character?! The guy can spell! You've really hit the jackpot with this one Robyn!

    Congrats to Alex on having an extraordinary launch party!

  3. Robyn, that is hilarious!! No eye contact and out of this world... well, yeah, that would be Byron. Sorry, he's all Athee's now. Unless you two care to fight?
    Thanks Robyn and hope you enjoy the third one just as much. Thanks for taking a chance on space opera!

  8. Well, I was hooked until I got to the no Candy Crush. Can't be with someone who doesn't get my aggravation over that game ;)

    Congrats to Alex on the new book release!

    Congratulations to Alex on the new book.

  10. How exciting that there are still unknown regions in the galaxy to touch down on. It just goes to show that the big telescopes haven't uncovered everything.

  17. Hey Robyn,

    I see that the ninja dude's tour has made it to your incredible site.

    And congrats to Alex who is not on 'Farcebook', yet he still ends up on there. Amazing stuff :)

    I'm going now because my clone's batteries need charging. And no innuendos!

  19. Julie, you are right. He can spell. Ding, ding, ding! We have a winner!

    Alex, I'm thinking about it. I'd cut a b*tch for a good man.

    Theresa, sorry. Byron is way too smart for Candy Crush. He doesn't understand what the point is, and he got to level 100 in two minutes, then tossed the game out into the black hole.

    Pat, I think so. He may need the blue pill.

    Thanks, all, as we applaud Alex's take-off to new heights.

    xoRobyn

  20. Hahaaha.... You are so quick witted. I wish I could come up with some of the things you do.

  21. This was awesome and absolutely hilarious. Any woman that doesn't want some out-of-this-world penetration in the trillion-mile high club with Byron is either gay or lying to themselves.

  22. I always enjoy your brushes with celebrity. This was FUN! YOU are fun. Great way to get the word out on Alex's book.

  26. Awesome post for Alex. Very clever personal ad. CassaStar was also the first Sci-fi I read and I loved it too.

  27. Lol. I like your ad for him. I've never read the books, but it seems appropriate. I'll have to add them to my books to read when I'm done with this semester. :)
