Dark Arts Cover

In this, the second part of the Dark Arts Podcast (ignore the intro, it's part 2 of 2), We turn the tables so Ray is bringing up high and low points from the book. In the later part of the podcast I bring up what I'll be up to next in the Spinward Fringe universe and allude to some changes that will be coming to Crewcast Radio in February 2016.

There were a few light spoilers in the first part of this podcast, but there are definitely huge spoilers for Dark Arts in this one, so if you haven't red the book, please turn away.

Thank you for listening, please leave comments and support for Dark Arts below, we absolutely love permanent commenting!

Our furry guest-host, pouting.

 

It’s been a long time, but I’ve returned with two co-hosts! Luke Alberton joins me for a special episode of The Spinward Fringe Podcast where we discuss the most recent book, Broadcast 8: Renegades, the future of the series, and what I’m writing right now, Brightwill. We are temporarily joined by Aurelius, my roommate’s dog. He pops up a couple times, then lets out what sounds like a short death-squeal when Luke motions for the pup to go back upstairs. The dramatic dog ended his appearance and pouted for the rest of the podcast. 

 

Also discussed are other podcasts including An Axe To Grind, more Spinward Fringe / Brightwill podcasts, and Thumbscrew Cinema, a feature podcast coming soon. 

 

Thank you for joining us, please leave a comment or two!

13687498761960912698door-opening-hiSylvie and I (Randolph Lalonde), spend some time talking about the seven part preview of Spinward Fringe Broadcast 8 (available here), which is a story in itself with a beginning, middle and end. This podcast will spoil that story for you, so it's a good idea to read it before you listen to this one. We talk about some of the story decisions, and how the central character in the story has evolved.

I also take some time to apologise, as we part the curtain for a look behind the scenes and how little time Sylvie had to work with me on getting the seven part story out into the world. As an Editor, she was on a very tight schedule, and I tell her how I'll be changing things so that doesn't happen anymore. All in all, this is a good hour for the Spinward Fringe Podcast, and we do go into some details about how Broadcast 8 is coming along, so people looking for a progress update will find it here.

Thank you so much for listening!

samurai-fighter-squadron-BLACKSylvie and I (Randy), get together to discuss how Amazon is treating their authors and what's happening with the final edit of the Spinward Fringe series. After we've explored those topics, we move on to some non-spoilery but important information on Spinward Fringe Broadcasts 8, 9 and 10. The status report and juicy bits are all in there, so tune in and catch up on the details. 

The song we feature at the end is Red Hands, by Walk Off The Earth. We thank them for giving us their permission to play their music.

Thank you so much for listening!

In this episode I reinforce my goals for this year, setting expectations for Broadcast 8, 9, and I talk about what it took to responsibly step back and figure out when those can be expected. We also had a major incident in studio involving some water, so the computer we normally use for podcasting is not available. We recorded on a Mac Mini and use a Cloudkicker tune for the temporary entry theme.

Luke Alberton, from another podcast: An Axe To Grind, co-hosts this episode with me as we talk about my month off, a couple adventures, and what lies ahead.

Yesterday Crewcast Radio obtained permission to use the music of Amanda Palmer so we are pleased to present Want It Back, a track from her latest album: Theatre Is Evil. 

Thank you so much for listening!

In this special episode of the Spinward Fringe Podcast, I announce the release date of Spinward Fringe Broadcast 7: Framework (that's November 21, 2012), and a SPECIAL SURPRISE for everyone who takes the time to listen. I talk about what this book means to me and thank the people who made it what it is, as well as the folks who have supported me for so long.

You'll also find the details on where you can get the book, what formats it's available in, and info on the collected Rogue Element Trilogy in print.

Thank you so much for your support over the years, and I hope you enjoy listening as well as reading.

This is the good stuff! Things start off with a Broadcast 7 update Sylvie and I (Randolph Lalonde), talk about finishing Broadcast 7 and some of the notes that typically get passed between a writer and their editor near the end of a project.

We also discuss some of Jacob Valance's journey from Broadcast 1 to Broadcast 7 (without spoiling anything in Broadcast 7). We shed a little light on which characters are largely focused on in this book, and discuss some of the benefits of writing a series, as well as final polishing required to finish Broadcast 7 off.

We take a moment to answer the question; "Do I need to read the Expendable Few to know what's going on in Broadcast 7?" and we continue on to talk about the language and style in that book.

The topic of the discarded draft of Broadcast 7 comes up right before we talk about National Novel Writing Month a little. There are a few nuggets in here, and some insider peeks at what writing this book was like.

Thank you so much for listening, the new season of The Spinward Fringe Podcast will begin as soon as the release date for Broadcst 7 can be announced, so keep an eye on this feed!

Sylvie and I dig into the nitty gritty of our work on The Expendable Few and Spinward Fringe Broadcast 7: Framework after I provide a fairly significant update on the progress. There's still no release date, but we're closer.

Next we get into questions from email and from the Facebook Page, where I answer questions about Alice, her role in Broadcast 7, and Sylvie answers questions about her own writing. There's new stuff you've never heard before in this episode, and the Spinward Fringe community played a big part in determining what content ended up in this broadcast.

This week we play Dragonfly by Universal Hall Pass, please check them out if you like what you hear.

In this broadcast I tie things up by discussing my love of entertaining people. When you consider the fact that I have stage fright, I'm surprised that there's anything to talk about at all before I started publishing novels online. The other two episodes lead here, and I believe it's the best of the autobiographical episodes. Everything important ties in, and I offer a real update on Broadcast 7, finally talking about why it's taking so long for this book to be written. The end of the episode is dedicated to you, and I take a moment to answer a couple important questions. There's also a lot of music from some great bands, who you'll be able to find using the links below.

Again For The Win: Guns. You can find them at www.againforthewin.com

Parallel Lions: For You. You can find them at www.parallellions.com
