Monday Tid-Bits

Website Update

Looks like things are falling into place now for my new domain name.  If you are curious, it will be http://www.ken-mcconnell.com.  You can go there now, but all I have up is a static HTML Coming Soon sign.

I’ve got the software I intend to use pushed to the new server, hosted by 1and1.  All I have to do now is find the time for an install fest.  The new site will have a WordPress install, custom theme, phpBB forums and a Wiki.  I don’t anticipate making the switch from here to there until sometime in December.  But that could change if I get it up and running like I want it sooner.

Writing Update

Moving right along on the Tyrmia Second Draft.  Up to Chapter 38 now, I believe.  Expect to slow down on it here shortly, but still should finish well before the end of November.

Promotion Update

I did a podcast interview with Chad Nelson this weekend for Hacker Public Radio.  As soon as I know that one is live, I’ll let you know about it.  Chad was very fun to talk with, we have much in common.  I may have rambled in the interview, but hopefully it was interesting.

Book Reviews

Null_Pointer is getting sent out to several reviewers this week, including Shannon at the  LLBookReview and Matt at Seattle-Geekly.

If you have read Null_Pointer and liked it, please continue to spread the word and write those reviews on sites like Amazon and Lulu and Barnes and Noble.   Some folks are circulating their paperback copies around the office.  That’s awesome!  Keep that enthusiasm coming.

Book Signing

Finally, another plug for my next book signing in Boise.  I’ll be attending Baker’s Dozen at Rediscovered Bookshop Saturday, 21st of November from 6:30pm – 8:30pm.  Come on out and meet myself and twelve other local Idaho authors and get a sample of our favorite recipes.   I’ll be giving out free chocolate and you know, nothing goes better with a good book, then a good piece of chocolate!
