Randolph Lalondeis creating Novels and Other Creative Bits

Thank you for contributing. You'll get updates on what's coming, what's arriving and where you can get finished projects (books, podcasts, and other things).
Sorry, this Tier is closed to new patrons because fees take a huge bite out of that $1.00 (Patreon's piece, then the Paypal fee, followed by the exchange fee).
Please consider Tier 2 ($3.00) instead.
I made this tier because fees take a lot of the $1.00 Supporter tier. At this tier all the fees are covered and there's actually a lot left in my tip jar. If you can think of a little something I could offer to enhance the Subscriber Tier so it's a little more worth while, then send me a private message. I'm thinking the few podcasts I release could become available to this and higher tiers first, but those come infrequently these days.
This tier definitely entitles you to every chapter I release, which normally come out on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Here Come The Books!
You'll see content, like podcasts, days or even weeks before the other tiers or the general public.
You also get access to everything in the first tier, including Spinward Fringe Broadcast 12: Invasion.
What is the purpose of my Patreon Page?
My Patreon page is a content hub where I write serials that become novels, talk about other things I'm working on, and share all kinds of things. I'll also be using this page as a new community hub where people can contact me through the comments section and members of Patreon can reach me directly through private messages.
Why are you moving to Patreon?
Before I answer that, I'd like to say that the community Facebook pages that exist right now, and the blog will still be around, but for new updates and everything else, they'll point to Patreon. I'll still participate in the Facebook and Twitter communities, but the main content, the stuff you probably want to see most, will be available through Patreon.
For years readers have told me that I charge too little for my books, but I've always maintained that I charge what I think they're worth, and the market reacts well to independent authors who offer their works for a low price, and very poorly to someone who prices their work closer to $10.00. If I want to do this for a living, I have to play by the same rules as all the other Indie Authors with regards to business practices. That's where Patreon comes in. If you feel you would like to contribute more to supporting me, here's your opportunity. I can also offer extra benefits to you in exchange for your financial help.
Having said that, here are links to projects that are ongoing:
Spinward Fringe Broadcast 15: Pursuit Index
NEM: Awakening Index
This series is now under way under the name: Randolph Writes, and is available to Tiers 2 and 3 first.
I will also add the Expendable Few and the first part of the Highshield Saga (when it's complete), to the pile of books Tier 2 Patrons get.
