The Updates Are Coming! The Updates Are Coming!

The return of Spinward Fringe Broadcast 6: Fragments to Amazon.com is coming soon. This Friday the book will reappear, following that updates will arrive at Smashwords, the iBookstore, Barnes & Noble, and other book retailers.

Spinward Fringe Broadcast 0: Origins is also receiving a major update.

These updates are the product of months of work, during which the text of the books were polished and a professional formatting house made sure the books will look great on any device.

The drawback to these updates is that everyone who made notes on their Kindle will lose them UNLESS they back them up on a computer before Amazon sends the new versions to their devices. I understand there are several different ways to save notes and highlights from Kindle, but I'm not expert, so I'm afraid I can't provide dependable directions or advice. If anyone would like to share their advice in the comments section, I'd appreciate it.

On other websites (such as Smashwords), the new version will be available for download free of charge if you already purchased a copy.

Everyone has Sylvie (my busy assistant), and 52 Novels (the formatting) company to thank for the hard work they put in. I can honestly say that both these books are more enjoyable now that they've had the extra work they needed.

Thank you for your patience,

RL

Signed Copies of Origins Are Available!

After an entire year of delays - some creative, some technical - Spinward Fringe Broadcast 0: Origins is now available in print. The text has been updated, the book is laid out to be more tree friendly (uses less paper), and distribution is broader than before.

Unsigned editions are available through Amazon.com for $19.99. They are not pocket book sized, but 6x9 trade paperback editions.

The signed editions come straight from my office, and I'll be sure to mark when they are out of stock. Since Createspace (the people who print these volumes) has increased their shipping speeds and lowered costs, these books have become very easy to keep around.

You can find the signed books in the Spacerwares Home Store. They cost $20.00 plus shipping.

Thank you very much for your patience and support. I'll be shipping copies of these books out to last year's holiday contest winners this week.

[The first batch sold out in about 3-4 hours but I'm taking pre-orders for the next. The details are on the Store Page.]


Update:


Createspace (My printer), may not have actually handed the new batch over to UPS yet. Since they were supposed to do that on the 4th of November, and UPS has no record of receiving anything, they're sending a replacement shipment today.

Your pre-orders may be a week late, but they are definitely coming.

As for the books that were already sold, everything will be on its way out of Ontario by the end of this week.

Thanks for being interested in the books, and I hope everyone enjoys them when they arrive!
