Starring Alex J. Cavanaugh and his final Cassa book, CassaDark!

Dear Sillies,
Over a decade ago, we were going to participate in a group blog, along with three others, but that never took off. Since then, Alex has become a good friend and an ever loyal source of support. He's far and away the most kindhearted, determined, and brilliant of bloggers (err, Ninjas). I like to say that Alex J. Cavanaugh is blogland's greatest gift, because he is. In fact, Alex is such a talented writer that I developed a crush on one of his characters. I think you'll figure out which one. 

Folks, we're incredibly lucky to welcome Alex J. Cavanaugh to Life by Chocolate's studio! The audience roars. American Ninja Warrior's theme song by Rapid Fire blasts our eardrums. Alex appears dressed in a sleek black Ninja warrior suit, with electric guitar. He sets what looks to be some sort of teleporter, perhaps, to his side. Robyn eyes this tall, shiny gadget, and she casually moves closer to it. 

Robyn: Oh, um, congratulations, Alex! CassaDark is your sixth project. You completed a sextet! Woo-hoo, it's getting hot in here. Robyn fans her face. That must've taken a lot out of you, am I right? How do you feel to have climaxed, Alex? You crossed the final finish line!
 
Alex: Exhausted! No wait, I can do more. Crap, what’s the right answer? Four novels, one short story, and a boxed set. I’d say I did damned good with the series. A fitting end. 

Robyn: But are you sure about that? I want more Byron. How's he doing, by the way? I mean, sometimes us authors decide we're done writing books but the next book nags at us. So what's next, and how's Byron? Is he still with what's-her-name? 
 
Alex: Byron is still with Athee. Mates for life, remember? He’s retiring and ready to enjoy life. And you do know he’s getting up in age, right? Oh wait, you like the older men, don’t you?

Robyn: Sigh...Bernie, Byron, and the Pope. How's Byron? I mean, what message would like us all to know about CassaDark and the entire Cassa series?
 
Alex: Again, he’s fine. CassaDark takes us on an adventure with Byron’s son, now a grown man. He’ll face a lot of hostiles on the prisoner planet of Ugar, uncovering layers of lies in the process. Just might make a man of him yet!
 
Robyn: Where can we get ahold of Byron? I mean, where can we find and purchase your book? Robyn whispers to Alex: In case JT and I don't work out, and he's not with what's-her-name, have Byron contact me.
 
Alex: I don’t have his number. Do you have a teleporter? He’s currently on Tgren. You can borrow mine if you don’t have one. Just don’t tell Byron I let you use it. Well, maybe that’s a bad idea. Never mind.
You can find my book here:

Robyn: Thanks Byron, I mean you, Alex. It was great to have you here. All the success in this and other worlds with CassaDark and your next adventures!
We love you and Byron. 
 
Alex: Thanks, Robyn! Wait, where are you going with my teleporter? Robyn? Robyn!

    1. My pleasure, Alex.
      Tele--what? Okay, um, soon.
      Love and all the great things you deserve, Alex (except the teleporter. I just need another minute or century with it).

  3. Big, big smiles. And I have a use for the teleporter when you have finished with it. Alex has had his turn.

    1. I agree. I'll be there with it...yesterday or so. Smiles.
      Thanks EC.

  4. What a wonderful way to showcase Alex’s book. The banter makes me think that Alex knows how to teleport you into the stratosphere.

    1. I'm trying to but Athee is a bit uptight about my presence, Debra. Can you imagine?

      Thank you.

  6. Very fun tour stop for Alex. Poor JT - I bet he'll steal a teleporter to find you and win you away from Byron.

    1. He can probably build one. JT's creative like that.
      Thank you, Joanne.

    1. Thank you. Given Alex's wit, it couldn't go wrong. I think we both had fun with it (plus, I have the teleporter. Ssh!)

  11. Careful keying your I.D. into the teleporter. _----ROBYN_
    BYRON---. Who knows what problems transposed letters might cause?

    1. Wow, good catch their names are the same letters!

    2. Wait, I didn't even notice that. It was meant to be! At least as a default. Or perhaps we'll just be NYBORs (neighbors?) You men are the best of the best. Thank you.

  12. Haha, loving the banter in this post. You know sometimes the reader does fall for a character in a book. Alex really is a force of energy in the blog-verse. Did someone say ‘tele-porter’, i have always wanted one of those. . Catch me if you can…. Running…..

    1. Thank you, Truedessa. I never crushed on a character before. I'd told Alex about it at the time. He's such a caring friend, he warned me that Byron wasn't right for me. But that didn't stop me, stubborn as I am. =)

  13. What a great interview. Congrats to Alex.

  15. Older men...hum, is the planet full of them. Can we all use the teleporter to go and have a party.
