The First Broadcast 8: Renegades Signed Special Editions Have Been Sent!

At long last, the first batch of Spinward Fringe Broadcast 8: Renegades signed special edition packages have been sent, and are on their way to all points across the world. Seventeen people put orders in, that's a personal record for signed copies, so thank you so much to everyone who ordered.I think the books and special features turned out quite well, and I hope everyone enjoys them!

If you live in the US or Canada, you can still order a special edition signed copy HERE

If you want an unsigned copy (it's much cheaper and it ships from Amazon), you can order one HERE.

If you'd prefer to order form Amazon, here are the two main links.

The book may also be available through Amazon in other countries. 

Thank you again for your orders, you should see them on your doorstep (or post office), in 10 business days.


[Next up on the blog: More podcasts, more information about Brightwill, and a visit to Toronto Fan Expo!]

Spinward Fringe Podcast Broadcast 28! The One With The Furry Co-Host

It’s been a long time, but I’ve returned with two co-hosts! Luke Alberton joins me for a special episode of The Spinward Fringe Podcast where we discuss the most recent book, Broadcast 8: Renegades, the future of the series, and what I’m writing right now, Brightwill. We are temporarily joined by Aurelius, my roommate’s dog. He pops up a couple times, then lets out what sounds like a short death-squeal when Luke motions for the pup to go back upstairs. The dramatic dog ended his appearance and pouted for the rest of the podcast. 

Also discussed are other podcasts including An Axe To Grind, more Spinward Fringe / Brightwill podcasts, and Thumbscrew Cinema, a feature podcast coming soon. 

Thank you for joining us, please leave a comment or two!

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.

[Important note: Thanks to increased shipping costs, I can no longer ship signed books overseas. I can only afford to ship to North America. I'm working on a solution for this. If you want an unsigned copy, you can purchase one though All previous orders will be honoured.]
