What’s Coming Next Monday June 18th, 2018 02:23:59 AM KenMcConnell
With the release of the third Corvette starship novella coming in just a few short weeks, I thought I’d take a moment to let you know what’s coming up next. The Corvette Trilogy is just the first of three planned trilogies with the same main character – Armon Vance. His story started with Corvette, then […]

Cover Art Friday June 8th, 2018 11:00:49 AM KenMcConnell
We’ve put together a new cover, this time for the Corvette 3 novella. It will be the third book in the Corvette Trilogy and the first and only to feature the new Corvette model. Well, never say never. I mean it could return for a later series appearance. Once again, this cover is put together […]

Airborne Again Monday April 23rd, 2018 08:21:56 PM KenMcConnell
Those of you familiar with my novels or with me personally, know that I’m a big fan of aviation. From a young age, I’ve always liked airplanes and flying. When I was a teenager, I joined the Civil Air Patrol and got to ride in small planes as a cadet. When I got to High […]

Cover Models, Corvette 3 Saturday April 14th, 2018 03:20:58 PM KenMcConnell
The Corvette 3 manuscript is being scrutinized by Beta Readers at the moment, so I have some time to prep the starship models I built for the cover shoot. This began by using canned air to blow the dust off of both the pirate ship and the new corvette. More time was taken on the […]

Writing Update Tuesday March 20th, 2018 03:33:47 PM KenMcConnell
Corvette 3, Pirate’s Lair is heading out to Beta Readers and will then go to my Editor. I’m hoping to have it out in ebook format in May. I still have to make a cover for it. At this late date, I have no idea what that cover will look like. I think it will […]

2017 Book Sales Tuesday January 30th, 2018 12:00:37 PM KenMcConnell
Last year I made over $18,000 US dollars selling my Sci-Fi novels on Amazon. At first glance that sounds AMAZE BALLS. But in reality, it’s just a blip on the radar for a ten year career writing and selling genre novels. Most years I’m lucky to make a couple of hundred dollars. In fact in […]

Time Lapse Book Writing Monday January 29th, 2018 04:37:33 AM KenMcConnell
On Jan 3 of this year I took a picture of my watch and the lower corner of my Write screen that showed my word count. I did it again after my next writing session and kept it up for the entire month. Everyday that I write on my novella at lunch, I document it […]

Star Saga Mug Monday January 22nd, 2018 06:03:44 PM KenMcConnell
In the things you need that you didn’t know you needed department, I give you my new mug design. It includes all the covers from the first trilogy of the Star Saga. All five books, including the two in-between novellas. The covers are set against a blue-gray field so they pop better and completely wrap […]

My Thoughts on The Last Jedi, Part 1 Sunday December 24th, 2017 01:27:26 AM KenMcConnell
There’s much to love about the new Star Wars chapter – The Last Jedi. But before I post what I liked about it, I need to address the problems I have with the story. The film succeeds on many levels and has more going for it than just about any other SW film to date. […]

Inspirations – Marty Robbins Sunday November 26th, 2017 04:16:28 PM KenMcConnell
A few years ago I wrote a bunch of short stories about a Stellar Ranger company stationed on a small, desert world named Ocherva. Those stories eventually culminated in book one of the Star Saga – Starforgers. The western style hero of my stories was a blonde woman named Devon Ardel. Devon went on to […]
