I always saw this series as an indie effort, with a small group of readers who found it was the right kind of Science Fiction Adventure for them specifically, so when I finally got around to putting some numbers together for a purpose I can't go into here, I was very surprised to find that the Spinward Fringe series has had just over half a million downloads since 2011.
That number is astounding to me, even though roughly 70% of that number is made up of free downloads. I never expected Spinward Fringe to be so wide spread, and that's great encouragement as I write Broadcast 9, which is shaping up to be a fantastic addition to the series.
I'm also happy to announce that I will be releasing two Spinward Fringe novels this year. Broadcasts 9 and 10 are both going to be on your digital shelf in 2015 come hell or high water, because I especially love the part of the story I'm telling right now, and I believe these books must be released within months of each other - I don't want to make anyone wait longer than they have to.
I have to thank all the readers who downloaded the books legally, whether it was during a sale, or if they only downloaded the free books, or normally, that big fat number in the title of this post is thanks to you. Many people are also getting ready to spread the word about the series during convention season, and I find myself absolutely stunned by the level of enthusiasm people have about the story I've been telling since 2008.
Thank you, I hope you enjoy what's coming up!
[By the way, Spinward Fringe Broadcast 0: Origins is still free through all major EBook sellers. Spread the word! Amazon US, Amazon UK, Smashwords, iBookstore, Barnes & Noble, Kobo]
