It’s May, so it must be time for another novel!

This time, it is book six in The Day After Never series, titled, Perdition. In it, the story arc set into motion in book five, Insurrection, is concluded, with all the usual action and adventure you’d expect.

I’m now hard at work on the next JET – Rogue State, which is progressing nicely, if slowly. I’ve been involved in a number of projects that have eaten into my schedule, so that one will likely release in July, with the next novel, probably one in the A Girl Apart or Ramsey’s series, in Sept or Oct.

If you haven’t checked out The Day After Never series, you should – some are calling it my best work to date. Here’s the cover and a link to Amazon, where it will remain exclusive for 90 days before going wide.

    As I remember the day after never series was to
    be 2 books. I’m an audio book kinda guy. Been waiting quite desperately for the 4 audio
    Installment. As I was looking into book 4 I now see there are 6!! That’s fantastic!! When will they be available in audio format?

    I know you write and others do the audios, but any help you can provide will be greatful.

      It was originally to be a trilogy, and all have been recorded in audio. The fourth is going into production shortly. Audio typically lags somewhat.

    Sir-my hat is off to you. You got mad talent. I could never approach your skill level as a writer. I could pick nits, post-apocalypse wise, especially logistically, but I understand you can’t retain complete realism and still have a fast moving plot. I just wanted to say, compared to most other writers in this genre, you are by far one of the most realistic and true to logic as possible. Thank you.

      That warms my heart. And yes, it’s a delicate balance between info overload and complete accuracy, and moving the story along and keeping things readable. Glad it struck a chord. Tell a friend or three.

    Love the “Day After Never” series. Will there be a book seven? Love your writing style and I can’t seem to put the books down . I hope there is a book seven, if not, thanks for the six.l

      I am considering doing a couple more books to finish out the arc. We shall see.

        That would be wonderful. I will try to wait hopefully and patiently 🙂

    Cheers buddy

      I plan to write two to three more DAN books in 2018 to complete that arc. Glad you enjoyed it. I think you’ll like rogue State.

    I ate up all 6 books in a week and I’m so bummed there aren’t anymore! There’s still so much that feels unfinished to me and I would LOVE to see Lucas get back to Sierra, she’s a force all on her own. It would be awesome to see her fight by Lucas’ side. Anyway I just really hope you write at least a couple more books in this series…. which is totally out of my genre but I love it! Hats off to you sir

      Thanks for the warm words, Erin. The good news is I am starting work on another DAN which will release in April.

      That’s the plan! End of April. Working on it right now.

    This and the Assassin series are two of the best I have ever started. Recently switched to books through audible to help with some long commutes. Any chance DAN and Assassin 5 and 6 will arrive on audible?

    If not, I’ll be reading them soon. Keep it up!!!

    • Russell Blake  –  Tue 03rd Apr 2018 at 11:57 am

      We’ve slowed production, so I wouldn’t hold my breath. Glad you’re enjoying them, and tell a friend!
