The print edition will be available sometime in the next 30 days, I'll announce its appearance as soon as it pops up! Thank you very much for joining me on this journey. My long time readers know that your support is what keeps me writing full time. The frequency and quality of these books is fully dependent on the patronage of my audience, and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

Free Ebooks by Randolph Lalonde
I hope you enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed writing it. Please take a moment to post a few words about it wherever you purchase it! RL [Now to get back to work on the second and third parts of the trilogy! Labels: aldiko , amazon kindle , book release , books by randolph lalonde , epic space opera , mobi , mobipocket , palm ebook , smashwords , sony reader , spinward fringe fracture , stanza reader.
The editor has told me that Spinward Fringe: Fracture is the best book in the series. Now that's what I call passing muster.
Aside from some minor cleanup this book is ready to go, and I expect to be performing eBook conversions this afternoon. Testing will take place tonight and the book will be out on or before August 30, ! The print versions will follow in the next few weeks and I'll post more information about that as the printed copies become available on the Lulu and Amazon stores.
Now for a little bit of information about the book! Spinward Fringe: Fracture is shorter than Frontline. It is the fastest paced book I've ever written or read. The story and dialog are written for screen and adapted for eBook format. In other words, I approached this like a film and not a book. This book is written so anyone can enjoy it.
Meaning that long time Spinward Fringe readers and people who have never touched one of the books can both pick it up. You don't have to read everything that's come before. I expect most readers who start with Fracture will most likely go back and start reading the previous books, however. If you're concerned about waiting forever for the next part of this series, don't be.
I'm writing Spinward Fringe and nothing else , full time for the rest of the year and into All other projects are on indefinite hold. My editor and I agree: This is, hands down, is my best work. Here's a synopsis! The crew of the Triton, a rare, Earth built Space Combat Carrier, make their way to Ossimi Station, a safe haven for independent ships and traders.
Now, here's how you can get your copy for free: I'm creating a testimonial style trailer for the Spinward Fringe series and need your help. What I'd like to see is a measure of enthusiasm about the series or your favourite book in the series. Here's what I need in the video: You have to at one point mention Spinward Fringe.
I'd like you to be enthusiastic. It can be taken with a decent phone cam, web cam, or any other camera I can coax a Youtube worthy video from. It has to be rated PG Don't add titles or animations please, your clip will most likely be edited. What will I do with your video? I'll clip it together with other videos I recieve and create a testimonial trailer for the series.
If I recieve more than 10 videos I can use I'll conduct a random drawing for 3 free printed books on September 30, and those three submitters will recieve a printed copy of any of my books for free!

In the process of writing eight books in the First Light Chronicles and Spinward Fringe series, a lot of extra material has been generated. So much, in fact, that the Spinward Fringe series has started to become a universe. While I was looking through the contents of the digital vault where I keep all the bits and pieces that get cast aside when I'm editing I realized that some of the material is actually quite good. Frontline, for example, had over 11, words cut and buried in those words are two pieces that could stand on their own.
One of those pieces, Landing on Leeds, is featured as the first part of the Strange Horizons and Close Encounters serial. Here's the full concept behind the series: It's a place to tell peripheral and background stories that didn't fit in the books, and preview parts of the books that haven't been released and to tell stories about characters who are experiencing life in the universe in a very different way.
It will be a free series. It's a living document! Meaning that you get more content by by re-downloading the file instead of downloading another eBook when each part is released. Instead of a bunch of little files mucking up your device, you'll have one bigger, changing file with a text index. Each part will be a short, spanning between 1, and 5, words. Some stories will be split into multiple parts.
When the book reaches , words it will go to print and another living document will be created. Guest writers will eventually be welcome. There will be no Spinward Fringe big picture spoilers. Most of the series will be fresh material that does not appear anywhere else. At least two parts will be available per month unless the project ends or something else comes up, in which case everyone will have fair warning. The story lines will be named.
I want this section sealed off in five minutes! The gunnery deck of the Triton was a disaster.

Randolph Lalonde. Kindle Edition. Jun 09, Yvonne Boag rated it it was amazing Shelves: science-fiction.
Spinward Fringe Broadcast 6: Fragments by Randolph Lalonde is filled with truly epic, deep space battles that left me craving more of this Space Opera drama Click here to read the complete review. Aug 05, Neil rated it really liked it. This was a good book that brought back the storytelling that was present in the original book.
Some cleaver character developments kept the story interesting. Well established characters were well written and developed. The only problem is i get hacked off every time I read it cause it isnt long enough, short books, is actually pretty frustrating ;. Feb 03, Gary O'Brien rated it it was amazing Shelves: reviewed , science-fiction. Fast-paced, non-stop action. The unexpected twists and turns in the entire Spinward Fringe series is great. Complex personalities. You can never be sure if any of the characters are the same people from one chapter to another.
Keep reading. All will be made clear. Try it, you'll like it.
Rogue Element Series
Apr 19, Alexander Bradley rated it it was amazing. Another great addition to an already bulging story. Plenty of characters with well throughout backgrounds, voices and personalities. Its the characters that make this series fantastic to read and easy to pick up at a moments notice.
Mar 13, Cindy rated it liked it Shelves: sci-fi , series , , kindle. I'm getting disappointed with this series. The fighting on board ship was great, but other little things are beginning to overshadow this series enough that I just don't want to read any more.
See a Problem?
Will do a more detailed review later, but I let me say that I don't like the way this is going. Feb 03, Donna rated it liked it Shelves: read-in , science-fiction. This series isn't great literature but it's fun. It has good action scenes and the writing has improved. This is the next to last book and I am hoping the last book wraps up all the loose ends. I was very happy to see that the editing has drastically improved--finally.
