131 Days Update and Other News…

 

131 Days (book 4): About the Blood goes to the editor on October 6th as of now. He’s busy with other projects, resulting in the late date. I’ll be working on book 5 in the meantime.

And that other news…

 

 

More details soon…

  1. Mr. Blackmore,
    As a true fan of zombie everything, TV, movies, and many many books both indie, and “big house” published. I just wanted to let you know that “Mountain Man” is by far one of the BEST series I’ve read.
    I look forward to reading more from you in the very near future.
    Thank you for sharing your talent and stories with those of us who enjoy reading great and truly original tales.

    1. Hmm Book 4 is out there– called “Well Fed.” After that there’s the new prequel, which happens before events in Mountain Man. The zombie breakout installment, I guess you can call it. Otherwise…. nope. 🙂 That’s it. Sorry.

  2. Ive been reading it all!!! Addicted!!! Please tell me there is a book 6 in the 131 days series…

      1. 131 days is one of the best series I have listened to in a while please write book six focus on that series oh and keep the same narrator he brings ur books to life

      2. I am so very glad to hear this! The 131 days series and the mountain man series are a collection of my very favorite books and they get me through through my days at work every single day.

        1. Book 5 of 131 is out on the market. Book 6 should be started in on in the new year, and hopefully, sales will be strong enough for me to keep working on the thing until the series is over. Hopefully…

  3. Definitely pining for the next 131 days. Super underrated series… I’m sure it’ll catch on eventually.

  4. I am a MASSIVE fan of the Mountain Man and 131 days series. Since I yawn my head off after reading 1 sentence I turned to audiobooks and glad I did!! The way they are read by the narrators are much better than I could ever imagine. Keith c Blackmore is a genius at writing!! I have listened to both series at least 10 times EACH and still chuckle at the humour. Read/listen to these books, u will not be disappointed!!!

  5. 131 days – absolutely love it. Let there be 10 books, minimum (Seden above🙌🏼). John Lee is also great (as always).

    1. Sorry Abe, still working on the follow-up to “White Sands, Red Steel” and it’s taking longer than expect due to circumstances beyond my control. When I finish the book, however, I will be starting in on the next 131, and will try to deliver books 6 and 7 within a much reasonable time frame. With a little luck, maybe even a book 8 IF sales for books 6 and 7 are strong enough to justify it. I tried writing back to back books before (131 Days, books 4 and 5) and because of weak sales, I had to stop. The good news is, the audiobooks are selling much better than the print and ebook.. and that’s very good news.

      1. I discovered it on Audible and told all my friends to check it out – what an awesome series!!!

        Thank you!!!

  6. Stumbled on the three book Audible series of 131 Days after listening to your Mountain Man books (I follow RC Bray as he is one of my favorite narrators and tend to buy whatever he narrates). Enjoyed the series immensely and quickly bought books 4 and 5. Looking forward to book 6 – and now adding John Lee to my list of favorite narrators. Quick question – how may books do you plan in this series? I drive a lot for work and am always looking for length/quality Audible series. 131 Days is one of the best I have found.

    1. 🙂 Thanks for that, Justin. Glad you are enjoying the stories. As to your question, back when I started, I envisioned a 10 book series. Now however, I think I can tell the remainder of the story in at least two more books, and possibly a third–so that would be eight books. And the series has been delayed, because of a lack of sales. The good news is, 131 has found a second life on audio, so once I get through the current project (finishing the follow-up to “White Sands, Red Steel”) I’ll be starting work on book 6 and probably book 7. Hopefully, sales will justify getting to work on a book 8. Now, there is an outside chance it might go to 9 books, but…. we’ll see. All depends on how much I can fit into a book 6, 7, and possibly 8, because like you, folks generally like to read/listen too longer works. So, yeah, we’ll see. 🙂

      1. relieved to hear it’s still being planned. just burned through all 5 audiobooks, and was heartbroken to learn that was it. sorry to hear sales for it haven’t been up to expectations. i’ll spread the news, but some will be leary of starting something that was “seemingly abandoned” several years ago. same people feeling hopeless about Song of Ice & Fire, so i suppose it’s not an unwarranted fear. but for me, all 5 have been super, and the narrator is a great fit. for me so far, this series is right up there among the ranks of Joe Abercrombie & GRRM. can’t wait for the resolution (but, of course, i’ll HAVE to). 😀

        1. Believe me, I wanted to finish the series long ago, but, yeah. I’ll get it done, and probably way before we see a book 6 from GRRM.

  7. Stoked to hear this! Just finished 5. I’ve already been through your mountain man btw loved it! Looking forward to listening to the rest of your work!!!!

  8. I cannot put in to words how much I LOVE the Mountain Man series, and am now also totally hooked on 131 Days! Thank you Keith! I spend a lot of time in my car for work, and your amazing stories on audio make the time fly by. I would love to see a Mountain Man series on one of the streaming services, it would make the other “famous” Z-word shows look bad, and Gus is such a great protagonist. A normal guy, not some super bad ass killing machine, just a guy doing what he has to to survive. I look forward to book six of 131 Days as I need to find out what is going on with my boys in the 10, and if and when Halm will return to the pit. Thank you again and all the best to you!

    1. Glad to hear it :). Here’s the teaser I’ve been telling people–I’ve managed to write a few chapters of book 6, and Gurga (you remember him?) is not happy….
