Happy Holidays - Spinward Fringe Style!
Anyway, since the last blog post things have been hopping, and in a good way. The Goodreads forums are seeing many, many new members.
Work on Broadcast 7 is going extremely well. The first final draft chapters were submitted to the editor last weekend and I expect to have another chunk in her hands the week after Christmas.
A few readers are stepping in and becoming voices in the fledgeling Spinward Fringe community (you know who you are!). Overall, the general attitude surrounding Spinward Fringe is quite positive.
What a lot of people who joined the Goodreads forum don't know, is that they entered into a draw for books and other prizes. I promised that if enough people joined the forums I would add prizes as well.
Enough people have joined, so here is the revised list of prizes:
One package including:
A full set of signed Spinward Fringe books and a Triton Crew T-Shirt.
Two packages including:
A signed copy of Spinward Fringe Broadcast 0: Origins and a Triton T-Shirt.
Five more people will receive signed copies of Spinward Fringe Broadcast 0: Origins.
The deadline is January 1, 2011 and the winners of the random draw will be announced on January 2, 2011.
All winners will also receive a USB drive with a few goodies you've never seen before, including a five chapter preview of a brand new novel that is unrelated to the Spinward Fringe series. I will ship anywhere in the world. Prizes will start arriving on your doorstep during March unless you live in Canada. There may be a skill testing question, which is required by Ontario law.
I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday season. I'll see you in the new year!
