Plausible Alien First Contact (Part II)

How We’d Integrate Into a Hypothetical Galactic Government.

In Part I, I laid out the plausible alien first contact scenario that forms the backstory of my novel, SECTOR 64: Ambush. As promised at the end of that post, I’m back to postulate how things would pan out post-contact.

As tweeted by the Huffington Post, my sci-fi novel, SECTOR 64: Ambush, made the IndieReader.com Best of 2014 list as a top ten indie-authored novel in the grouped genres of science fiction, fantasy, and paranormal.

Over the last month, SECTOR 64: Ambush received several excellent appraisals from reputable review sites. Here’s what the critics are saying:

AudiobookReviewer.com – 5 Stars

“SECTOR 64: Ambush was a highly imaginative action packed apocalyptic assault on your mind. Take everything that you think you know about the current military, the knowledge that we are alone in the universe, and flip it upside-down. I will continue to listen to this series.”

IndieReader.com – 5 Stars

SECTOR 64: AMBUSH is an engaging book from the very first page to the final words of the Epilog.

Audiobook-Heaven.com – 4 Stars

“Cole has a good thing going here … His descriptions of aerial battle and military procedure are accurately detailed and his knowledge of the aircraft themselves fascinated me … He created a couple of races of aliens, gave them their own histories and cultures and just made them outright interesting. His characters are realistic and believable as well. Sector 64: Ambush is a great read.”

GadgetGirlReviews.com – 4 Stars

“Sector 64: Ambush is an easy, fast paced, unputdownable read of alien invasion and race against time to save the Human race.”hardcoverjacket_747x1076

2014 Galveston Lone Star Motorcycle Rally

My ‘Choppers’

Many of my readers only know me as an author who flies ‘choppers’ for his day job, but you may not know I build and ride them, as well.

I finished the baby pictured above in June 2008. A few months later, she made her Galveston Lone Star Motorcycle Rally debut, and she’s still going strong in 2014. It’s almost time for this year’s rally. Look for Donna and me there November 7-9.

Save us a parking space … a really long parking space with plenty of turning room. That rake allows for the turning radius of a Mack truck … but it looks good doing it. Hey, I never said it was practical.

When you see that ten-foot-long yellow chopper with my beautiful wife, Donna, behind my ugly mug, give us a yell. If you can’t remember my name, just yell out, “Hey you, author!”

Hope to see you there.

New Science Fiction Novel Available Today

Ambush Cover Art 1.3

New science fiction novel, SECTOR 64: Ambush, is complete. Both the ebook and 500-page paperback are available on Amazon.

A dizzying chain of events thrust US Air Force fighter pilot Captain Jake Giard into a well-intentioned global conspiracy with extraterrestrial roots. However, as Jake finishes indoctrination into the program, it renders Earth a pawn in a galactic civil war. Within and above Washington DC, Captain Giard and two wingmen fight through a post-apocalyptic hell. On the West Coast, his girlfriend and fellow fighter pilot, Captain Sandra Fitzpatrick, wades through blazing infernos and demented looters in a desperate attempt to save her family. Finally, with the fate of the world in the balance, they take the battle to the enemy, humanity’s very survival hanging on their success.

This new full-length novel, an action-packed present-day apocalyptic thriller based and expanding on the highly rated novella, Coup de Main, delivers a broader scope with twice the action, richer scenery, and additional characters drawn with greater depth. Tapping his experiences as a combat pilot, the author creates authentic dialogue and gripping action.
