Spinward Fringe Broadcast 16: Hunters Release Date and Pre-orders!

 

I'm writing the final chapters of Spinward Fringe: Hunters right now, and, while it's great to finally arrive at a finish line that I've been looking to since the beginning of Broadcast 15: Pursuit, I think I'll miss this story. Right now Patreon Subscribers are enjoying two new chapters a week, and they're getting the first look at this book.

I understand not everyone likes to read their fiction in a serialized format, so the editors and I are already working to get the final, complete EBook in good shape and out as soon as possible. We're aiming for an April 17 release date, and it looks like we'll hit it. Much of the editing work is actually finished, and I'm starting my final pass on the book.

In Spinward Fringe Broadcast 16: Hunters Admiral Jacob Valent unearths secrets about the Haven System's history as he looks for the Order of Eden forces hiding in the Cluster, a group of ninety-seven solar systems surrounding his new home star. Alice and Noah continue their adventure by attempting to make good on a promise she made at the end of Broadcast 15: Pursuit; to commit grand piracy against the Order of Eden with the cooperation of their new allies. The fight against the Order of Eden and other enemies continues as our heroes face new challenges and dire consequences. 

While this has been one of the most challenging Spinward Fringe novels to write, it's also been a great deal of fun. I've enjoyed it so much that I'll be starting work on Broadcast 17 shortly.

I invite you to pre-order Spinward Fringe Broadcast 16: Hunters so you can join me and the crew on this journey. You can also look forward to an in-depth podcast to accompany the release of this book. Now, it's time for me to get back to work on the last two chapters of Broadcast 16: Hunters.

NEM: Awakening Will Arrive On October 31, 2020

 

I'm proud to announce that the first book in a new trilogy is going to come out on October 31 of this year. This was originally a project that I used to keep busy during the early days of the COVID-19 isolation period and a way for me to connect with everyone on Patreon a little more closely.

It grew into something more enjoyable than I expected as I offered Patreon Subscribers opportunities to make major decisions for the main character. These changed and will continue to change major events in this novel and the next. It was also a lot of fun.

After a long editing process and a little rewriting, the once serialized first book of the NEM series is about to become available to everyone. Here's the synopsis:

Grant has loved fantasy for his entire life. As a Dungeon Master he began creating a world of his own for tabletop role playing games that has grown to fill five large binders. This world is called Nem. Outside of his basement game room pursuits, he once trained for and competed in the only medieval tourney held in his home city and won. That was his greatest moment, and it was some time ago. Little does he know, Nem is real and he is uniquely qualified to save his favourite part of it. A journey involving a death cult, a budding enchanter, the Goddess of his dreams, and more awaits.

I can't go into why this book is perfect for a Halloween release because I'd be spoiling some major details, but trust me, there are parts of this book that fit the mood. I hope you enjoy the adventure. You can pre-order your copy using the following links if you want to make sure you get the book as soon as possible.

Spinward Fringe Broadcast 15: Pursuit Is Available Today

 


That's right, after being serialized on Patreon, Spinward Fringe Broadcast 15: Pursuit drops today everywhere in EBook form. I know, there wasn't much fanfare leading up to this book's arrival here on the blog, but I've had my head down writing two books at once, then concentrating on polishing Pursuit with little time to spare.

This book follows the events of Broadcast 14: Rebel, and deals with the complex aftermath in the Haven System while two pilots who are stranded on a new, urban post-apocalyptic world (Dame and Easy), try to find a way to tell Haven Fleet where they are or get a ride back home. Meanwhile, Alice and Noah (Carnie), continue searching for real resistance groups and the elusive Mary Reed.

All the while a group of Order of Eden Knights, the Justicars, are looking for Alice, following a clear order given to them by their Admiral: "Bring me a Valent." In this book that takes us into the minds of the most important characters in this phase of the series, the fight for dominance over a corner of the galaxy called 'The Cluster' takes several steps forward. With the Haven System at the centre of The Cluster, the stakes couldn't be higher.

I'm happy with this novel and I hope it shows in the journeys the characters take and the care that my editors and I took to polish it. Look for a special note of thanks at the end.
