Combat Frame XSeed: Coalition Year 40

Combat Frame XSeed: Coalition Year 40

Announcing the official launch of my mecha thriller saga's second pulse-pounding installment: COMBAT FRAME XSEED: COALITION YEAR 40 is here!

They made him necessary. He’ll make them pay.

Earth groans under the yoke of the Systems Overterrestrial Coalition. Socs enjoy privileged status while grounders languish as second-class citizens.

Student Thomas Arthur Dormio leads the Brussels Service Academy’s history club, a front for a dissident grounder cell. The Human Liberation Organization conducts a campaign of blackmail, sabotage, and terrorism to free Earth from the Socs.

En route to make contact with the HLO, Second Lieutenant Theodore Red arrives in orbit over Western Europe. But before he starts the next phase of the resistance on Earth, Red has a man to kill.

Will the HLO defeat the Coalition? Will Red get his man? Get this action-packed adventure for just 99 cents, and find out now! Perfect for making that long holiday car ride or airport layover fly by!

Reader review

While I raved about the original XSeed (CY1) and its side story (CY2), it is refreshing to see CY40 offer new scenarios and new types of action and intrigue, instead of rehashing the successful CY1, while further developing the underlying 60 million year old mystery in ways that make speculation even wilder.

Of course, the key to any martial thriller is the pacing. CY40 succeeded in coaxing me to trade a night's sleep until I got to the cliffhanger ending. More XSeed is on the way, and I can't wait.

(Once again, I was a backer to the the crowdfunding campaign that funded this book.)


High praise, indeed! If you've already experienced CFXS: CY40, let the world know what you think! Reviews posted to Amazon within the first two weeks of launch are critical to raising the book's search ranking. Leaving an honest Amazon review really helps!

Review Coalition Year 40!

Thanks again to all our Indiegogo backers. All campaign perks have been fulfilled from my end. If you haven't received yours yet, don't worry. It's in the mail.

There's lots more CFXS fun inbound. You won't believe what happens next!

Get CFXS: CY40 now!


  1. I actually caught this announcement over at MHN. It's another one of your books that pretty much downloads itself. When I finish it, I'll be sure to leave a review.

    1. Thank you!

      I try to announce book launches to my readers first, but when the Mountain that Writes offers to do you a solid, you don't pick nits ;)

    2. Yeah, it was an offer you couldn't refuse. :)

  2. Which would help you best? Buying the book when it is off of it's Kindle sale so you can get more money, or buying it now to hopefully bump up your algorithm?

    1. Buy it now. It's already my 3rd highest-grossing book. Ranking on Amazon/reviewing the book helps the most.


  3. Rereading the first before I jump into the second, but I'm looking forward to it! This time I'll keep the review simple so I don't get it bounced.

  4. Just got mine and I’m so excited

    And I'm reading through it. The pacing reminds me of Red Storm rising. I find your latest one to be a tightly written page turner.
