So, I’m really sucking at this hibernation thing.
But, you know what?
So, rule #1. I can totally post if I want to. I shall call it popping in. Sort of like a weasel.
Rule #2. I can pop out if I want to and stay out as long as I like. Sort of like Anne Riley’s belly button.
Rule #3. I can pop up around the Internets if things are getting exciting. Sort of like…well….
I’m sure you can think of things that pop up. I for one am tapped.
It comes from all that hibernating, see. Brain cells go a bit fuzzzzzzy.
[Eleven hours later EDIT: I got one! A jack-in-the-box!]
Anyway, I’m popping in for a moment because this is totally worthy. My friend Alex has published a book, see. And I want to tell you about it. Check it out. STAR WARS fans, prepare to drool.
CassaStar by Alex J. Cavanaugh
Publication Date: October 19, 2010 Science fiction/adventure/space opera
ISBN 9780981621067 Dancing Lemur Press LLC
Description: To pilot the fleet’s finest ship…
Few options remain for Byron. A talented but stubborn young man with a troubled past and rebellious attitude, his cockpit skills are his only hope. Slated to train as a Cosbolt fighter pilot, Byron is determined to prove his worth and begin a new life as he sets off for the moon base of Guaard.
Much to Byron’s chagrin, the toughest instructor in the fleet takes notice of the young pilot. Haunted by a past tragedy, Bassa eventually sees through Byron's tough exterior and insolence. When a secret talent is revealed during training, Bassa feels compelled to help Byron achieve his full potential.
As war brews on the edge of space, time is running short. Byron requires a navigator of exceptional quality to survive, and Bassa must make a decision that could well decide the fate of both men. Will their skills be enough as they embark on a mission that may stretch their abilities to the limit?
“…calls to mind the youthful focus of Robert Heinlein’s early military sf, as well as the excitement of space opera epitomized by the many Star Wars novels. Fast-paced military action and a youthful protagonist make this a good choice for both young adult and adult fans of space wars.” - Library Journal

Doesn’t this looks significantly AWEsome? Oh yeah.
Dude. It’s totally wantable.
P.S. Do not let the title fool you. If you did not catch it from Rule #2, I am not baking a baby. Anne is. And I wish her the very best in this last month of it : D
P.P.S. Sara McClung is having another ARC contest!! Huzzah!
P.P.P.S. I like circular posts. Thus, I end with the GREAT HANDINI who clearly makes his own rules.
Okay. I’m done. Now…popping out.
