UPDATE:… Mountain Man 6: “Mindless”


Just a quick one. So I wrote this the other day…


The End.



There you go. First draft finally done. MM6 “Mindless” is over 135,000 words, which makes it a little shy of MM4’s length. That total will probably change, depending on what I might add or take out in the second draft.

As always, if you’ve been reading previous entries on this blog, editing is next, and that could take a couple months depending editor availability, what problems might pop up in the first draft, sections that need to be rewritten, etc. All takes time. I’m hoping it’ll be on sale around the end of the summer.

Ebook will be the first format to hit the market and paperback will follow within the month. Can’t give any idea as to when audio will be available, as RC’s rising star status guarantees there will be several titles in his queue waiting to be narrated. I think at last glance, he was booked until 2022? Or something like that? All I can say is, when I know for sure, I’ll let you know.

Cover will be revealed in the months to come.

Next project will be also revealed in the months to come. A break from all things zombie is needed at this juncture, and I want to get back to fantasy. I’m not sure I can tackle “131 Days” just yet, but I’m seriously considering getting back to the follow-up to “White Sands, Red Steel,” which is long overdue. People have been asking about a follow-up to “Breeds,” and there is one planned, but I want to finish some of these other series first.

All subject to change due to finances or fancy.

No movie news to share with you at this time, but there are things going on behind the scenes, and if/when I get the green light to share, I most certainly will.

    Thanks for the update Keith. Always good to know that there’s something to look forward to. Just finished White sands so a follow up to that would be good. Also loved the 131 days and Breeds series so any follow up to those between MM releases is welcome too.
    Hope all is well with you and yours!
    Keep up the great work!

    Gotta be RC narrating it, even if its 2023!
    I just discovered MM5 I was pleasantly surprised when I logged into the Audible for the first time in a year or so. I love this series. Thanks so much for bringing us more Gus.
