XSeed Secrets: Plot and Pacing

Combat Frame XSeed: Coalition Year 40

Last night I stopped by the Superversive SF live stream to discuss my new book Combat Frame XSeed: Coalition Year 40. My gracious host and the enthusiastic chat brought up lots of tantalizing questions about the mysteries I've planted in the series thus far. I addressed those questions and gave additional clues to those mysteries, which will be revealed in Combat Frame XSeed: CY 40 Second Coming.

We also embarked on an in-depth discussion of plot and pacing. I contend that the latter is derived more from character than from sentence and paragraph level mechanics. See the video for a full explanation and a mini writing clinic.

Last but not least, I dropped some details on the next XSeed book, the aforementioned CY 40 Second Coming. This book will reveal most of the background material I've been keeping close to the vest, wrap up the CY 40 arc, and pave the way for the upcoming S arc, so there's a lot for CFXS fans to look forward to.

And since folks have been asking, yes, we'll be running an Indiegogo campaign for Second Coming. Details on the tentative schedule and new perk tiers are in the video.

Thanks to Superversive SF and my amazing readers. Enjoy!
