Readers’ Favorites Thursday September 7th, 2017 05:22:51 PM KenMcConnell
   Last year my novella, Devon’s Blade received a Five Star review from Reader’s Favorite. This year my novella, Corvette, won Silver Award and received a Five Star review from Reader’s Favorite. Both of these stories are Military Sci-Fi and feature my style of realistic story telling coupled with characters that you want to root for. Both of them are also small stories that focus on a small portion of a larger conflict. Devon’s Blade is a classic air combat tale and Corvette is an ...

Book Series Issues Wednesday August 23rd, 2017 10:51:55 PM KenMcConnell
I’m having quite the time figuring out the branding of my Sci-Fi universe. For the past few years I’ve been calling it the Star Saga, which is accurate in that the whole series follows multiple generations spread out over a thousand years, but doesn’t make it easy for the reader to understand. So I’m reorganizing the books once again for clarity. This is part of branding my fiction and plays into how it gets advertised to readers. If the reader comes across one of my books I want her ...

Long Overdue Writing Update Sunday August 6th, 2017 04:35:47 PM KenMcConnell
WRITING STATUS Fans of the Corvette novella will be pleased to know that the first draft is complete and in the hands of a few select beta readers. A second draft or pass at the manuscript will occur after I get some comments from the betas. Then it’s off to the editor and copy editor and finally, it will get released. When will that last part happen, you ask? Probably in late October. In the meantime, I’ve already started writing book 3 and the final Corvette novella. If I finish it before winter ...

Cover Art Evolution – K’nat Trap Wednesday June 21st, 2017 04:29:21 PM KenMcConnell
Every book I release has a cover that is produced by myself and my graphic designer brother, Byron. Since we are working in the Sci-Fi, Space Opera genre and in one particular universe, we try and have starships on the cover to get that fact across to future readers. We also have a certain style that we carry over from book to book so that readers get a visual clue that this new novel fits into the same universe as the last one they may have read. Being consistent with the branding helps readers find you and ...
