A New Spinward Fringe Podcast Has Arrived

Thanks to a barrage of questions on the Facebook Page, Ray and have rolled up our sleeves and recorded a question and answer podcast. I answer everything the readers put forward on that little thread, and talk about why Crewcast Radio went away for so long just after we seemed to be getting our stuff together.

The Spinward Fringe Podcast is back, and it’s a good thing. Enjoy, comment, and come back for more next week.

You can listen to the whole thing here.


[As requested by readers and listeners, I've created a Tip Jar, just in case you want to pay a couple dollars for the podcast or anything else. The details are available through this link]

Where Can I Preorder Spinward Fringe Broadcast 9: Warpath? The Round Up

It took a couple weeks, but now most people can preorder Spinward Fringe Broadcast 9: Warpath from their favourite store. Not too many retailers offer indie writers / publishers the opportunity to let their readers preorder, and I'm grateful to the ones that do.

Preorders not only help you get the book in your shopping cart when it's convenient, so you have it the day it comes out guaranteed, but it also helps authors climb the best sellers list. The sales from preorders all count on that first release day.

To answer where you can preorder, I decided to get the links together right here. Thank you in advance for your support, I honestly wouldn't be able to keep writing full time without people who pay the price of admission and talk about my work.

Spinward Fringe Broadcast 10 Release Date Announcement

The response to Spinward Fringe Broadcast 9: Warpath has been solid, with just over seven hundred preorders in the first ten days. That may not be New York Times Best Seller big, but it's a fantastic start by my standards.

Work on Broadcast 9: Warpath is almost complete, and there's great news - it's longer than expected by about ten percent or more. As I've said before, I've been enjoying the work on Broadcast 9 so much, that I don't want to stop writing. So I won't.

After Spinward Fringe Broadcast 9: Warpath is complete, I'll be taking a short break to finish work on another novel called Dark Arts, which has been a project I've touched on and off for several years, starting in 2009. It's time to finish that. Most of the work is already done.

After that, I'll be getting to work on finishing Spinward Fringe Broadcast 10, which will take us into the middle of a war. I deeply enjoy writing this series, and I have to write Broadcast 10 before turning towards the next Brightwill novel.

With the work I've already completed on Broadcast 10 in mind, and the plan already on the board, I'm comfortable announcing that the release date for Spinward Fringe Broadcast 10 will be December 14th, 2015. Yes, that's right, it's going to be late this year.

A preview chapter, or chapters for Broadcast 10 will appear in Broadcast 9: Warpath, so you'll have some idea what you'll be getting yourself into.

I'm eager to get the story that many of you have been waiting for, the war the Spinward Fringe series has been headed for, in front of you, and I'm excited that most of my year will be spent writing this series.

I'l be working on Brightwill II early in 2016, then I'll be back to work on another Spinward Fringe Novel, and possibly another Dark Arts novella after that. It looks like I've got my schedule all set until 2017, that is, if you're still reading.

Thank you for all your support so far, I hope to provide you with many hours of entertainment in the coming months, and the coming years.
