I’m really excited to announce that I’ve signed on to write another three Rapp novels for Emily Bestler Books. It’s hard to fully express my gratitude to the fans who have embraced this new era and reached out to offer encouragement, kind words, and constructive criticism. Your passion and energy are what make it so fun to sit down in front of my keyboard every morning.
Since I get to send Mitch on at least three more missions, I suppose the next question on everyone’s mind is what will he face over the next few years? I’ve just finished my outline for the next book (all 35,000 words of it) and you’ll be happy to know that I have a strong idea of where the series is headed. Mitch will continue to gain wisdom from everything he’s been through, and the threats he confronts will continue to parallel the developments we see around us in the real world.
Some things will never change, though: Mitch will forever remain patriotic, focused, and unrepentant about eliminating anyone who poses a risk to his country or the world. And, to answer an often-asked question, I have no plans to kill off Scott Coleman. I’m not sure where so many fans got the idea that I have it in for the guy, but it’s not true! To me, the legs the series stand on are Mitch Rapp, Irene Kennedy, and Scott Coleman. My connection to him is as strong as anyone’s. If anything, you may see an expanded role for him. I love writing about the man.
Thanks For Helping This Series Succeed
Along with fans, there are so many people who keep this series careening forward. From Emily Bestler and her incredibly talented team, to Vince’s agent and family, to my own network made up of family and friends.
So, thanks again for your support and get ready for some of Mitch’s most harrowing missions yet!
