A while back on Facebook… I asked if anyone would be interested in MM7?
And folks said, yes. To which I said, I had half a book in my head, but I didn’t know what happens in the other half?
Well, one day while working on the follow up to White Sands, Red Steel, I figured I’d start dabbling in that story, in the evening. To see what would happen when I reached the halfway mark. Turns out, I didn’t need to worry so much about the second half at all. The story pretty much wrote itself as the characters did the scribbling for me. Weird how it went, but that’s what happened.
And as a result, the long overdue follow-up to White Sands, Red Steel, took more and more of a backseat to the “evening project” until, well, the first draft of MM7 was finished.
Now, I’m not sure when it’ll be on the market. Not even sure of a title even… but… it’s done.
And in the days and weeks to come, I’ll be working on edits for both stories.
The next 131 Days book will follow after that (which is to say I’ll start writing it), probably in the New Year. I want to get back to that series and finish it, asap.
Figured I’d let you all know.
Will MM7 be the last story you read about Gus… ?
Awesome news, made my week man!
This is the best news I’ve heard in a long time. Favorite series ever by far. THANK YOU
This is exciting news! I need more Gus in my life. He reminds me of a dear friend who passed away some time ago (a little bit gruff and a big ole teddy bear). Thanks and keep up the excellent work!
There’s never too much Gus. Super excited about MM7.
Oh, thank the high seas! Just finished listening to Book 6 and felt lost without another MM book to roll into… Can’t wait to dive in whenever it comes!
Several times over the past 6 books I had to stop, take a breath, and think, “Why does Keith C. Blackmore hate Gus so much?” So, definitely looking forward to hopefully reading that Gus catches a break in 7. Give the man some 3-ply and a few weeks to stare at the stars with his buddy Scott. 🥃
lol and some folks think I’m too easy on him…
Thank you so much. I miss Gus. Seems like a friend or something.
Couldn’t be happier!! Best news i’ve had in months, keep up the good work
I love this series so much and happy to hear about 7. I have no clue why I enjoy this genre so much. You’ve become a favorite author and Gus is pretty amazing. Thank you.
This is great news. My hubby and I have been waiting for what seems like forever for MM7! Good luck with the title and publishing.
Great to hear! I love this series.
There it is! My mind awaits both your words and Bray’s voice, Keith!
Are you expecting RCB to narrate? I know he’s a busy dude and been sick lately.
He’s is all that, but yes, I expect him to narrate. Ninety-nine percent sure. But too early to comment on when it might be released on audio.
YES!! I am looking forward to every single one! I’ve listened to Mindless at least 5 times and every time the end puts a lump in my throat and more than a few tears in my eyes, my missus even caught me crying 😂🤣 I am more excited for 131 days as I’ve listened to all of them at least 8 times and can’t wait to find out what becomes of Halm and the boys. All written by a true master.
Very kind, Dave–glad you like the stories 🙂
horray!! i was worried i was going to miss Gus so much but now light is on the horizon and i can hope to read about how everything turned out for him.
2023 could be a very good year for us Keith C fans. MM7, a followup to White Sands and, best of all, the next one in 131 Days. Get to it Mr B and no slacking!
As a zombie genre fan, I’ve really enjoyed the MM series. In the middle of 6 and I already know I look forward to 7. Nice to hear RCB will be back. He does a great job. Good luck on the option, I hope they make the movie or series. Many of my friend would definitely watch it with me. Thanks for the stories and please help them coming.
I’m excited, I’ve gone through all the books an embarrassing amount of times. I think I connect with Scott the most but I’m a rum man myself too. Cheers, Gus. The operators earlier story interests me. Your tone feels spot on for the story and vibes. Keep up the fantastic work, standing by for any updates or early snippets to be released.
Are we going to see TV series?
You never know, but at this point, I don’t think so….
Ask if we still want to hear more about Gus after MM15!
Oh my sweet jumping Jesus & pullin on a chub!
I’ve been chasing my tail & sniffing every which corner soul searching for my old buddy’s Agusto, Scotty & Tammy LOL and that crazy rat ass dog toung fella! Thank you so much Keith! You’re my hero I fell in love with every character in every book of MM !!!
I see so much of myself in Gus. Its rare for me to relate so heavily to a protagonist.
The Mountain Man is by far my favorite series on Audible. Im literally on my 5th listen.
Can’t do it without RCB… just fits Gus perfectly. To change now would suck!
Yes!!! Thank you again Kieth! I just restarted Mountain Man and can’t wait for the next chapter!!!
Fantastic news. Really enjoy your work but MM is the series has just that bit extra.
Your frequent use of “ordinary people” in extraordinary times in MM is a fantastic relief from other dystopian stories obsessed with using invulnerable superhero’s. Being in Australia your descriptions of Canada (even in a Zombiecide) keep calling to me to visit. But that may be just the novelty of your climate for me.
Please keep doing what your doing it’s bloody awesome.
