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.

    I’ve read them all and “131 Days” would make an awesome series for Amazon or Netflix. No Dragons!

        So, so excited for this! My unhealthy obsession with this series has ruined any sort of joy from other sources for me! It’ll be a sad day when the final book comes out.

    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.

      I second these comments. Love me some Gus and anyone other than RC May do more harm than good.

      Only thing I know is I’m addicted and dread the day it all comes to an end.

    Just finished the Mountain Man series to date. Enjoyed every one including the prequel. Great characters and impressive writing style that holds your interest from start to finish. By far one of if not the best in the end of the world genre.Loo forward to MM6 release and will check out your other works. Thanks for the great adventure. I love a good series.

    Love Love Love the Mountain Man series! Just finished MM5 where it was left open for another book. Cannot wait!

      I don’t think I’m brilliant but I am certain I’m made of marshmallow and caramel….

    I absolutely love your Mountain Man series and Breeds. I will whine and beg R. C. to squeeze in MM6. The audiobook is the only way I can enjoy them because I had a TBI a few years ago that made it so I can’t focus my eyesight so it is very hard to read almost anything. I really enjoy your writing style and I’m steadily adding more of your books to my Audible library.

    1. Keith

      He’ll be doing MM6, no worries about that. Drop me a line through this website….

    The Mountain Man series has been the finest PA books I have read (sorry Nicholas Sansbury Smith and Josh Gayou). Just listened to MM5 again. Hate having to wait for MM6, but I will and pray R.C. Bray can find the time. There is only one Gus and it’s R.C Bray. Also, I might have missed something but is the Majestic 311 on audible? I can’t seem to find it.

    1. Keith

      RC does bring the bacon to a campfire, don’t he? And M311 will be available on July 28th…. RC is going to do a live event on FB, and he might be giving away free codes for the book. If you’re interested.

    When is book 6 coming out. 131 days?? I am going crazy waiting

    1. Keith

      Book 6 of MM? Ebook might around Halloween–audio should be early in 2021 if there are no hitches. Paperback should be a month after the ebook. 131 Days? I should get back to that one in 2021–had to refill the coffers before starting the next book as the series hasn’t been selling well.

  12. John

    Just listening g to book 4 now. Loving the series so far.

    Marshmallow and caramel are as close to brilliant as any human can get! You have won me over and plan to start Breeds whilst I wait MM6 !
