A to Z Challenge - F - Go Farther!

We are one week into the Challenge!

It may seem like we still have a long way to go. But don’t give up now. Push yourself. You CAN go father then you think. Dare to dream big and keep pressing onward. You will amaze yourself at what you are able to accomplish if you just refuse to quit.

And when you aim for the moon, sometimes you do land among the stars.

I know, because I wrote one book and then decided to go a little bit farther. And today, my fourth book releases. I definitely went farther than I imagined!


By Alex J. Cavanaugh
Science Fiction – Space Opera/Adventure/Military
Print ISBN 9781939844064, EBook ISBN 9781939844057

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?

Congratulations on your fourth book release! Wow, that is inspiring.
I needed some encouragement. I am starting to think I was a little to ambitious with my theme and maybe instead of giving up, I might just change it up.
Thanks!

Lynda, don't give up! Just scale back a bit if you need to.

Congratulations on the book release!
The A to Z challenge is actually helping me go farther, helping me turn my recent blog into a real blog. I see the challenge as a motivator and it has helped me gain confidence through and in my writing.

Congratulations Alex! It is great to look back and see what we accomplished once we let go of all the reasons we can't. I'm releasing my first box set this week which means I wrote more than one book, yay. And this challenge is going to push me to be a if not, better, blogger then at least more frequent. I love scifi, have to check your book out.
