What’s Next for Corvette? Thursday August 9th, 2018 12:00:23 PM KenMcConnell
The Corvette Trilogy is now complete with the publication of Pirate’s Lair. The next trilogy in this Starship Series, that’s what I’m calling it for lack of a better descriptor, is called the Destroyer Trilogy. Our hero, Captain Armon Vance is now on a Tin Can and on a new set of missions. I hope […]

Welcome to the Center of the Universe Tuesday August 7th, 2018 02:32:30 AM KenMcConnell
This summer my family and I visited the tiny scenic town of Wallace, Idaho. Wallace is primarily known for two things; it’s the town you see in Dante’s Peak that gets destroyed by a volcano and it’s the Center of the Universe. To be sure, you can stand in the middle of the town’s main […]

Corvette: Pirate’s Lair Saturday August 4th, 2018 05:17:59 PM admin
It’s a few months later than I anticipated, but it’s finally here. The exciting final book of the Corvette Trilogy. But don’t worry, Vance and crew will be back again in a new trilogy, early next year. Look for Destroyer: Declo Demons which will be the first book of the middle trilogy for this Starship […]

Seiko Prospex PADI Thursday July 19th, 2018 05:05:33 PM KenMcConnell
As regular followers of my Twitter account have no-doubt noticed, I tend to take pictures of my watches when I write or edit during my lunchtime sprints. Somehow the #WatchAndWords hashtag has never really caught on. Usually, I’m sporting my Hamilton Khaki Mechanical. But lately, I’ve been wearing a new Seiko diver. I probably would […]

A Five Book Trilogy Friday July 13th, 2018 08:52:04 PM KenMcConnell
There are five books in the first trilogy of my Star Saga series. It’s called the Starforgers Era or Trilogy but it really consists of five books and one anthology of related short stories. Each numbered book is a novel and each in between book is a novella focusing on the lead good and bad characters […]

Ye Old Stellar Map Thursday June 28th, 2018 12:00:00 PM KenMcConnell
Twenty years ago I drew a map in MS Paint. It was based on the shape of a barred galaxy and it showed the Alliance planets and the Votainion Empire planets of what would become known as my Star Saga series of novels. Although at that time, I had yet to write even one novel, […]

Automated Paper Shredder Wednesday June 27th, 2018 03:38:22 PM KenMcConnell
My son Spencer was given the task of shredding a big box of old financial papers for us. His response was to automate the task using his Arduino microcontroller. He built an auto feeder with a stepper motor and a wheel and some cardboard. Then he put a light sensor over the jam light panel […]

In Between Time Tuesday June 26th, 2018 08:30:20 PM KenMcConnell
Currently, I’m in between finishing the edits for Corvette 3 and finishing the last half of a Mystery novel. I can’t really do anything on the first and I don’t have time to get into the other one before I would inevitably be dragged back to finish the first one. So what do I do with […]

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 […]
