If you haven't met Alex yet, I recommend you make up immediately for that lapse in your blog-visiting itinerary-- not only is Alex an extraordinary blogger, but also an awesome Ninja Captain. I have the CassaFire and CassaStar and can't wait to read CassaStorm!
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…

I know Annalisa through the A to Z April Blogging Challenge (have you signed up your blog on the list for this April yet??), and lurve her blog. Imho the cover for That Sadie Thing looks creepy, in a Creepy Good kind of way!
A couple break up on a rainy night; a runaway longs to go home; a woman finds comfort from eating lunch as her best friend lies in hospital; a teenager feels oppressed by her father. All of the characters in these stories are trying to find their place in the world, attempting to find connections that matter with the people around them.
This collection brings together prize-winning and published stories from the past twenty years: the ‘greatest hits’.
That Sadie Thing and other stories will be available on
Kindle Monday 25th February 2013.
Annalisa Crawford lives and writes in Cornwall with a good supply of beaches and moorland to keep her inspired. She finds endless possibilities in the relationships between people. As this collection testifies, she has been writing for twenty years - but doesn't feel a day over twenty-one.
I'm looking forward to both these books and looking to add them to my tottering TBR pile! What books have you bought lately? What do you think of the two covers?
