This and That Saturday April 8th, 2017 03:54:19 PM KenMcConnell
Random posts are random. The latest paper books I’ve acquired are The Eternal Zero from a Japanese writer and Entropic Angel from Gareth Powell a UK writer. The Japanese book is about a Zero fighter pilot from WWII and Gareth’s book contains many of his SF short stories. Looking forward to reading both. I’ve seen the [...]

Corvette, Written to Market Monday April 3rd, 2017 12:00:14 PM KenMcConnell
Last year I read a book called Write To Market by Chris Fox. Chris was no stranger to me having followed his stellar Indy career and read a few of his writing books before. But this book was different. This book chronicled Chris’s attempt to write a best selling ebook. He spelled out how he [...]

Corvette Launch, Two Weeks On Sunday April 2nd, 2017 11:29:47 PM KenMcConnell
I thought it was about time for a numbers update on my novella, Corvette. I launched it on Tuesday, 21 March 2017 with little fanfare as an Amazon KDP Select ebook and a KDP Paperback. I did no advertising for the launch. No Facebook ads, no Amazon ads and no BookBub or similar posts. I [...]

My Latest Obsession with Wings Sunday April 2nd, 2017 04:28:37 PM KenMcConnell
I’ve always been fascinated with airplanes. My current obsession is a two seat propeller driven attack plane from Embraer, a Brazilian aerospace conglomerate. The A-29 Super Tucano is the latest version of an air frame developed in the 1980’s. Aeronave A-29 Super Tucano em voo sobre a Floresta Amazônica. This tough little airplane has been purchased by the [...]

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. [...]

I have also used the KDP Paperback program to convert the ebook into a paperback. Amazon purchased [...]

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 [...]
