Broadcast 16: Hunters Is Out And Doing Well!

 Spinward Fringe Broadcast 16: Hunters has had a great first week, taking the number one spots on Apple Books SciFi / Fantasy category and on Smashwords. It also got to the number two spot on Amazon (US and UK) in the Science Fiction / Space Opera category.

I have you to thank for this, and I hope you're enjoying the book. If you have time to leave a short review, that'll help other readers decide whether or not to take the plunge, especially since many of them check reviews on later books in a series before starting the first one.

This was a challenging but enjoyable book to write where I got to tell parts of the story that I've been hanging on to for a while. I'm looking forward to writing Broadcast 17 after I finish work on NEM: Crimson Shores.

Just in case you're wondering where to pick Spinward Fringe Broadcast 16: Hunters up, or this is the first you've heard about it, here are links to most of the retailers who carry it.

Thank you again for picking my book up and showing that it can rise to the top even so late in the series!

Live Streaming On April 20, 2:00pm EST - Wild Writing Session 2

Tomorrow I'll be writing the second chapter of Get the Gold! It's a fantasy tale that I'm writing off the cuff, by the seat of my pants, or as the muse whispers.
The session will be between thirty minutes and one hour long, and this time I'll be looking at the live chat, so if you want to watch, comment or react, then you'll have to turn up while the stream is live. Comments are encouraged after too, since each session will be recorded forever on YouTube.

Oh, and this time I've licensed some music to go along with the adventure!
I hope you enjoy coming along with me for this experiment!

If you didn't catch the first one, you can click here to check it out. 

Please comment if you have something to say, like if you enjoy it, and subscribe if you want more. See you tomorrow!

Read An Ebook Week 2021

 

It's Read An Ebook Week at Smashwords and all my books are on sale. My fantasy novels are free, including NEM: Awakening, Highshield and Brightwill. Everything is formatted for Kindle (.mobi) and EPub and once you pick one of the books up (even for free), you have access to the version you purchased and future revisions forever. 

There is no retailer that gives you more content than these guys, and they're a pretty nice bunch too. 

Stop in and take a gander at my Catalogue, then look around.

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.
