Carnie's Tale Part 9 is up, and Part 4 is now free for all! Part 9 is a little short, but soon there will be two parts a week, so I hope that makes up for it.

He finds that trustworthy people are difficult to find as he has to make a journey with a young boy, Tadrin, across the countryside amidst political and religious upheaval.
If matters weren't already complicated enough, he has to face the undead and zealots from enemy religions who want to sacrifice his charge to their own Gods.
Highshield takes place in the same world as the award winning novel Brightwill, and examines a different side of the universe introduced there.
The ebook and printed version contain an extensive Appendix as well as the final edit of a book enjoyed by many on Patreon, where readers were able to choose the fate of a main character, comment on the developing story and see the rough version months before the final release. An important preview chapter from Book II is also included.
Preorders are available through:
The Apple iBookstore
Barnes & Noble
The Kobo Bookstore
Please note that many Patreon subscribers will receive the Ebook version for free, you know who you are!
[On September 6, 2017, the Patreon site and this blog will become completely dedicated to Spinward Fringe and the books that will be arriving before year's end. Watch the Patreon Site for the most up to date info.]

Work on Spinward Fringe Broadcast 11: Revenge continues. I admit to taking a much needed break, and hope that everyone's patience continues to hold even though it's been much less than a year since the release of Broadcast 10: Freeground. Preview chapters and the book itself is coming. I like what I have so far.
In the meantime, there's a lot to see on the Patreon page. For Spinward Fringe fans, a new serial has launched called Spinward Fringe Continues. So far there is a short, three part story called Haven Shore Immigration, and four parts of Carnie's Tale to read. Here's a link to the index.
It's my hope that these stories, most of which would never have been published or told, will entertain you between book releases. I enjoy telling these stories and expanding the universe in less predictable ways that may not fit in a book, so I look forward to every release day on Patreon.
There's other stuff on Patreon too, most of which is free, like concept drawings, podcasts (more of those coming in the next couple weeks), and a fantasy novel called Highshield, which is in its final chapters for now (over 30 chapters so far!)
I hope this begins a new era of continual content for Spinward Fringe and the other universes I dabble in, and I'm looking forward to seeing you there.
