Dragon of the Stars

By Alex J. Cavanaugh

 The ship of legends…

 The future is set for Lt. Commander Aden Pendar, son of a Hyrathian Duke. Poised to secure his own command and marriage to the queen’s daughter, he’ll stop at nothing to achieve his goals.

But when the Alliance denies Hyrath’s claim on the planet of Kavil and declares war on their world, Aden finds his plans in disarray. Entrenched in battle and told he won’t make captain, Aden’s world begins to collapse. How will he salvage his career and future during Hyrath’s darkest hour?

One chance remains–the Dragon. Lost many years prior, the legendary ship’s unique weapon is Hyrath’s only hope. Can Aden find the Dragon, save his people, and prove he’s capable of commanding his own ship?


But Wait! There’s more…

Oh please, you expect me to write a post after a massive Easter supper?  (Mostly salmon and pirogues and pie.  Thank you Ann and Rich.)  I ate so much I can barely move, let alone think.

Besides, tomorrow night I’ll be posting an announcement on Tuesday for Alex J. Cavanaugh’s launch of Dragon of the Stars.  I’d love to see y’all back here for it.

bunnyMeanwhile, I’ve made some progress on my disguises and stalking plans.  If I can take a few hours from work this week I can track someone on her way to a seminar.  I especially want to be invisible because this is a nasty person with a short fuse.  Think Cruella de Vil without any fashion sense.  She’ll definitely be a challenge.

Thank you, by the way, for giving me some great disguise advice. Mike Offut (SLC Kismet) was very right about how people in uniforms (mailman, UPS, etc.) are usually invisible to everyone.  And Hart Johnson (Confessions of a Watery Tart) made a smart reference to Sidney in the Alias series and how she often changed her appearance and identity; I have the DVDs to one season and should re-watch them.  Also, I just read the chapter in Carol Kilgore’s Secrets of Honor where the heroine disguises herself in order to meet clandestinely with the First Lady; her tricks included silicon patches to fill out her face, which I didn’t know about.

I also went to Goodwill to get ideas.  Turns out the place has plenty of medical scrub duds for sale if I ever want to dress as a doc or nurse, and then there’s stuff like cutesy grandma sweatshirts.  I mean, what’s more invisible and harmless than a sweet old lady?

Anyway, I hope you have a wonderful week.  See you back here tomorrow.
