Spinward Fringe Broadcast 8: Renegades Signed Special Edition Taking Orders

The response to Spinward Fringe Broadcast 8: Renegades has been overwhelmingly good. So many people have purchased and enjoyed the Ebook edition, it's well past time that a really good printed version was released.

On July 28, 2014, I'll start shipping signed copies of Spinward Fringe Broadcast 8: Renegades with a USB key that contains all the special edition content from the Ebook version. There was a huge delay on this because I moved across town and don't have the extra space I used to. I don't even have an office anymore.

I'm really looking forward to getting a printed copy out there, since so many people want them, and I'm so proud of the work in this book. Other books will be available sometime this year, as I'm trying to edit older Spinward Fringe books so they're ready for the print presses.

The package that will be available will include:
A 6"x 9" Trade Paperback copy of Spinward Fringe Broadcast 8
A USB storage drive (compatible with Mac / PC), which will contain...
An Ebook versions of the novel for all devices.
The Triton-Con Cup (5min narrated slideshow).
A Brief History Of The Spinward Fringe Universe In Covers (25min narrated slideshow).
A 90 minute commentary track featuring the Author and the Editor.
Several Wallpaper images for cellular phones, tablets and computers.
A sneak peak at Brightwill, the next novel from Randolph Lalonde.

You can order your copy now, and pay no extra shipping for the package. Your copy will be amongst the first shipped on July 28. The price for all of the above is $39.99 USD (shipping to US and UK included).



Thank you so much for your support, I hope you enjoy this package. I loved writing this novel, even though it took over a year, and I've been fortunate that it, and the special edition content, have both received positive reviews.

Spinward Fringe Broadcast 8: Renegades Release Date!


I just finished writing the end of Spinward Fringe Broadcast 8: Renegades. It's not the ending I expected when I started writing the book, but I think it's so much better. No spoilers here except to say that I'm very pleased.

Now that I know I'm happy with the ending and I've spoken to everyone else involved with the production of this book, I can make another announcement.

The book is still in need of another edit, and I'll be working on that with Sylvie as well as another editing partner. Then it will be sent off to one formatter for Ebook distribution, and another for print. The distributors will have to approve it after that. They will point out technical issues (if there are any), and we'll fix 'em then be ready.

After adding some wiggle room for schedule snafus, I'm setting the release date of the Ebook version of Renegades for Friday, March 21, 2014 for $4.99 through Amazon, Smashwords, the iBookstore (Apple), Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Sony Reader Store, Diesel, Page Foundry, Flipkart, Scribd, and Oyster.

Sadly, there will be no freebie codes or preview editions.

There will also be a special release through my own website that will include exclusive digital bonuses and a version of the Ebook for all readers. The Special Release will cost exactly the same as the normal Ebook version of Renegades, but it will only be available through www.spinwardfringe.com.

There will be a signed print edition available in April as well, and that will include the same content as the Special Release on a USB key that will ship with the signed printed book.

So, again, Renegades will be released on Friday, March 21, 2014 in Ebook form and in print sometime in April.

Thank you so much for buying my books and supporting me, I hope this book isn't surpassed by it's hype. It's something I'm proud of and I hope you all enjoy it!
