Assault by Fire *RELEASE* week!


Assault byFire releases on the 29th of September!
What happens when the Russians finally find the perfect conditions to launch the invasion of America? Action, thrills, great characters and a lot of fun!

In the rip-roaring tradition of Red Dawn and The Dirty Dozen, this action-packed thriller from Lt. Col. Hunter Ripley “Rip” Rawlings IV takes all-American patriotism to an explosive new level . . .


About the novel:

U.S. Marine Tyce Asher knew his fighting days were over when he lost his leg in Iraq. He thought he’d never see action again–certainly not on American soil–until the Russians attacked us by sea . . .

With so many troops stationed in the Middle East, the U.S. government is counting on Tyce and other reserve fighters to step up and defend their country–when Russian boots hit the ground . . .

This is much more than a surprise attack. It is a full-fledged invasion orchestrated by a military mastermind hellbent on destruction. As the Russians move inland, killing and maiming, Tyce has to enlist every patriot he can find–seasoned vets, armchair warriors, backwoods buckshooters, even mountain moonshiners–to unleash their 2nd Amendment rights . . . on America’s #1 enemy.

    I just finished reading “Assault By Fire” and can’t wait to read more with the Tyce Asher character. I really enjoyed the book as well as the various groups that came together to fight for our country. I am a 61 year old Air Force Veteran and can see how too close to home this can be and I agree we, as Americans, take our freedom for granted. I can’t wait to read more. Keep it up!

      Thank you Tami!
      The second book remains local and we’ll see a new antagonist. My Beta-readers all said the same thing mid-read: “PLEASE kill the antagonist!” So I’m glad to have stirred some emotion. A good bad-guy can make all the difference. Thanks again for reading and I appreciate your comments.
