XSeed Book 3 On Indiegogo

Combat Frame XSeed: CY 40 Second Coming - Brian Niemeier

The highly anticipated crowdfunding event is here! The third action-packed book in my hit mecha thriller series, Combat Frame XSeed: CY 40 Second Coming, is now live on Indiegogo.

It's Not Over
Genius or madman? Monster or savior?

HALO mastermind Arthur Wake is missing in action. His fragile grounder alliance shatters under the Coalition’s counterattack.

Desperate to recoup their losses, the Coalition turns to a young combat frame pilot with a grudge against HALO. Brutal false flag attacks soon jeopardize Hainan Island’s hard-won independence.

Sullia Zend uses the fray on Earth as cover for her secret agenda. But can even the Sentinel manage a ruthless lawman, her own estranged sister, and a HALO defector on the eve of a cataclysmic reckoning eons in the making?

The cliff hanger ending of Combat Frame XSeed: Coalition Year 40 left readers clamoring for more. It's my pleasure to announce that you'll not only get a resolution to the CY 40 arc which answers this epic series' most burning questions, you'll get the book before its official launch by backing the campaign.

I put a lot of time and effort into coming up with perks for this campaign. Our third outing sees the return of perennial favorites like the Be in a Book, Be Killed in a Book, and Build-a-Mech reward tiers. I've also added all-new perks I'm sure you'll find exciting!

And to eliminate the barrier to entry for first-time backers who may not have read the first two books in the series, every perk tier includes a digital copy of all three XSeed novels.

Secure your early bird edition of XSeed book 3. Choose from a growing selection of awesome perks, and help save science fiction. Back Combat Frame XSeed: CY 40 Second Coming now!

A foretaste of what's to come.
UPDATE: You guys are amazing! We're already over 65% funded. Since the first stretch goal will be unlocked any time now, I'll go ahead and reveal what's in store.

2nd Coming 65%

Traditionally we've made a new run of trading cards the first stretch goal, but by reader demand, this time we're doing something different. As I mentioned in the comments, this campaign's first stretch goal will be a brand-new short story that bridges the gap between "CY 2 Gaiden" and Coalition Year 40. The story will reveal how the XCD-100 wound up in a desert in Western China. You'll also learn the final fate of crazy-ass spaceman Zane Dellister.

Unlike the trading cards, which go up as perks when they're unlocked, as soon as we hit $2000, every backer will be guaranteed a copy of the new CY 20 short. No additional perk necessary!

We're within striking distance of the initial funding goal, so let's make a push to get the novel funded and unlock the first stretch goal today!

UPDATE 2: That was fast! I'm pleased to announce that Combat Frame XSeed: CY 40 Second Coming has fully funded in less than one day!

Second Coming 102%

We're just getting warmed up. Our first stretch goal, an all-new XSeed short story chronicling Zane Dellister's last adventure, is no unlocked!

Back the campaign, get us to $2,000, and guarantee every backer a copy of the short!


  1. And backed!

    Looking forward to hopefully getting a Series 3 trading cards stretch goal met.

    For the rest, I hold that the Systems Overterrestrial Coalition must be destroyed.

    1. Also obligatory Build-a-Mech plug:

      I had an awesome time doing the first one, and was thoroughly satisfied with the end result. Well worth it IMO.

      I'm pretty sure the other two who have gotten this perk would agree.


      For the rest, I hold that the Systems Overterrestrial Coalition must be destroyed.

    2. Your support is greatly appreciated!

      I may as well reveal this here: The series 3 trading cards will be our second stretch goal this time. The first stretch goal will be a new XSeed short story set in CY 20 that bridges the events of CY 2 Gaiden and Coalition Year 40. All backers will receive it at no extra cost if we hit $2000.

    3. And we've hit $2000 already! Time for the next stretch goal!

      For the rest, I hold that the Systems Overterrestrial Coalition must be destroyed.

    4. Indeed. And you identified the second stretch goal correctly in the IGG combox: Series 3 CF trading cards :)

  2. Brian

    Immediately backed.
