Step inside the Circle

Hello and welcome to The Circle. I'm William Kenney (@WilliamJKenney), Author and Artist. I've self-published four books in the last nine months and throughout that time, have met some other great authors who have now become friends. With this blog, I intend to create a hub of sorts for each of us to post our relevant information. Readers can visit this blog and know that anything posted here is of the highest quality. The list of writers to the right is small and will remain so. I don't think we will be inviting others into The Circle for some time, if ever. So go down the list of books, click them, visit the Amazon pages. You will find only High-Quality stories. The writers here spend a lot of time perfecting their craft and releasing only the best products.

From here on out, this is the home of (other than myself):

Gary Vanucci (@AshenclawRealm)

I met Gary online last year and we quickly grew to be friends. I ended up creating the art for his book and short story covers and we plan to collaborate on a story sometime in the future. Gary writes awesome fantasy in the style of The Forgotten Realms and Dragonlance novels, very much like the writings of R.A. Salvatore. He also used to sing Heavy Metal. Bonus points.

Benedict Martin (@BenemartBen)

Benedict was one of the first authors that I met through Twitter and he's a very cool guy. He draws hilarious cartoons on his blog and I don't like the art competition. LoL. His novel Escaping Entry is a quirky, humorous and very interesting story. I recommend it highly. He is currently working on the sequel. He also claims to hate pantry moths, but I'm not buying it.

David Woods (@DavidCWoods1)

David is a friend of twenty years. We met at a comic book store that we both eventually worked for. He's always had a great imagination and sense of humor. We had talked about working on a story together for some time and I am happy to say that we are currently at about the halfway point on our first collaborative novel, a horror novel called Ingheist. For those that have only read my fantasy stories, please remember that this is a modern adult novel. It overflows with profanity, disgusting and scary imagery and sexual situations. Just a warning. Not for those under 18.


The mysterious Stefain has been a friend for about the same length of time as David. He is a very accomplished musician and songwriter. In the past, we have collaborated on many songs, including a concept album based on one of the novels that he will soon be releasing. He is also preparing a collection of dark poetry called Blizzard of Glass. Please don't read if you're feeling suicidal. LoL. 

So, prepare yourselves. Information regarding each of the authors will start appearing here as well as their own personal blogs.
