BrothersinArms w-seriesQuite by accident, I realized that today, April 8th, is the one-year anniversary of the publication of my first book. On this day in 2012, Brothers In Arms was released (the first time, anyway). It’s kind of a fun coincidence that the first (and completely unplanned!) sequel is being released this Friday, the 12th.


If you have not yet discovered the genius that is Brothers In Arms, Book #1 of The Recon Diaries, now is your chance to enter to an e-book copy.

A couple of months ago, I very publicly declared I would not be attending Gay Romance Literature (GRL) in Atlanta, this year. I still have issues with the event that go beyond one poorly-worded announcement. However, it was pointed out to me that GRL is the one place, this year, where several people whose company I enjoy will all be. It’s not practical or affordable to make individual trips to visit with each person I would like see. I’d like to, though!

So, I registered for GRL this past weekend. Obviously, I registered as a reader, so I won’t be on any panels, doing any readings, or sitting at any signing tables. I will, however, be at all the evening parties.

625572_433049433440558_440937255_nI have to rethink my plans for swag and for providing autographed print books to those of you who want them. I had planned to start selling a batch of Lucas and Noah’s dog tags on my website, as well as taking pre-orders for signed copies of Strength of the Pack, so I would know how many copies to order. Obviously now, some of you who are going to GRL and would have ordered one or both of these items now, will now probably wait until GRL. It’s also probably time that I have dog tags made for Jonah and Kellan, as well.

This all makes one thing a little easier now: those of you coming to GRL from outside of the U.S., who have emailed me about finding a way to get signed copies of SotP to the event for you to pick up, now only need to track me down!

Since not everyone is going to GRL, I’ll still set up my website to buy dog tags and pre-order signed copies of SotP. I’ll also have those available at GRL, if you want to track me down. Finding me isn’t difficult, either. I’m easy to spot once you know what you’re looking for. And I mean that in a good way.

Kendall McKenna

Kendall mckenna love & dog tags Kendall McKenna is an author of M/M erotic romance novels. Kendall McKenna’s first work of fiction was written at the worldly age of nine, and was a transformative work that expanded on the story told in a popular song of the time. She tried her hand at vampire and cowboy fiction, winning high school poetry and short story contests along the way. It wasn’t until she discovered the world of m/m erotic fiction and found her stride with cops, Marines and muscle cars, that she felt inspired to share her stories with readers who enjoy the same things. Putting herself through college by working in a newly-created HIV testing clinic in her local Department of Health, introduced Kendall to the gay and lesbian community. Understanding and empathy has made her a lifetime advocate of GLBT issues. A brief bout of unemployment gave Kendall the time and focus she needed to finally produce a novel worth submitting for publication. Her first novel, Brothers In Arms, introduced the world to her authentic military stories and characters. Kendall was born and raised in Southern California, where she still lives and works. A non-conventional relationship has kept her happy for the last decade. Her four dogs enjoy it when she writes, as she sits still long enough for them to curl up around her.


  1. *big sigh*. Already said that it’s a bit far for me to go to GRL.. Maybe make it another year… Hope y’all have a good time.. So I hope you are still planning on the selling do signed books and dog tags otherwise.
    RIP me – she ne was a patient soul…

    • Yes, I’m going to sell the tags and books through the website. Probably tonight, I’ll do some admin work and get the PayPal links up on a page. It’s not difficult, it just takes time. Time I’d RATHER spend writing! 😉 It won’t be long, though, now that I know for sure I’m going to GRL.

  2. Loved Stringent of the Pack which sadly is the only one of yours I’ve had the chance to read yet. The others are on my kindle waiting for me to find the time. And I’m really looking forward to meeting you at GRL, I’ll be the one fangirl stalking all of my favorite authors (like you).

    • Oh, you won’t be the ONLY fangirl stalker! There will be others! And some of us writers are fangirl’s, too! We get a little excited over books and authors we like, as well!

  3. Hope you will have a great time at GRL.

  4. I am new to you and do not remember any quotes. Sorry

  5. Danielle Anderson

    Just read Brothers in Arms and am looking forward to Fire for Effect. I like Jonah and Kellan a lot, but Lucas and Noah grabbed my heart first. Can’t wait to see them again in Tim and Jeremy’s book!

    • Yeah, there does seem to be something about Lucas and Noah that just grabs readers. They sure are a popular couple. They’re settled in their relationship in the next book, but circumstances draw them into Tim and Jeremy’s drama a little, so it’s funny when they start giving out relationship advice.

  6. How to spot Kendall in a crowd….she’s tall, really tall, and then wears heels on top of that. Just look up and there she’ll be.


  7. First I absolutely love all…ALL of your books. And second…I’m glad I’m not the only tall lady with curly hair…but mine is dark dark brown. Cannot wait for Fire for Effect.

    • And on kind of another note…kind of not…Will you be repubbing “Waves Break My Fall”? You know I really liked that one…I mean, I have my copy, obviously, but it is a pretty great story.

      • Yeah, at some point I’m going to totally overhaul Waves Break My Fall and re-release it. I have a couple of other projects I have to work on first, then I’ll take a look at that file and figure out where I want to start with it.

    • Nope, you’re not alone! With my heels I’m well over 6 ft and I don’t style my hair, I ask for its cooperation! 😉
