Post Release Numbers Sunday March 26th, 2017 10:18:18 PM KenMcConnell
Thought I’d show you the numbers for the week after Corvette’s release. I do this not to brag or to belabor how little money I make on writing, but to help others understand what to expect. So far this book is turning out to be more interesting than any other release I’ve done. I’ve had [...]

Sometimes I do an inside baseball post about publishing and this is one of those posts. If you are a writer who self publishes you’ll find this interesting. If you’re not, feel free to skip it. Yesterday was a the Release Day for my latest novella, Corvette. This book is intended to be the gateway to [...]

Making of a Cover – Corvette Monday March 20th, 2017 03:15:14 PM KenMcConnell
One of the best parts about being a self-published author is getting to do your own covers. Most writers don’t want anything to do with the process. But for me, I see it as a great way to showcase my model building hobby. I’ve always built plastic models since the time I was a kid. [...]

Book Zero of the Star Saga Wednesday March 15th, 2017 12:00:39 PM KenMcConnell
Corvette, my latest novella is actually Book Zero of the Star Saga series. It’s set thirty years before the Great War with Voton and is a great introduction to the universe and the entire series. Corvette is a self contained story but sets up what could be the further adventures of its crew. If there [...]

The Name Game – Corvette Sunday March 12th, 2017 04:41:29 PM KenMcConnell
Last post I talked a bit about the inspiration for the ships and their names in my new novel, Corvette. Today I thought I’d talk about where some of the character names came from. When I have to come up with new character names sometimes I get creative and other times I have a bit [...]

Corvette Sunday March 5th, 2017 04:09:42 PM KenMcConnell
When you hear the word Corvette, do you think of the slick sports car from Chevrolet? Most people do. In fact when I let that name slip as the title of my WIP on Twitter, I got RT’d by a Corvette car enthusiast group. But I wasn’t writing about a car, or looking for a [...]

Using Google Docs For Novel Writing Thursday February 23rd, 2017 11:14:00 PM KenMcConnell
I recently got a request to do a post about how I’m using Google Docs to write my novels. Looking back over some old posts, I already covered this a year ago, and you can read that article here. I’ve now written two novels and I’m currently working on a third using the Google word [...]
