‘Afghan Storm’ makes must read list for 2015 at The REAL Book Spy

I was pumped to see “Afghan Storm” made the list of must-read books for 2015 at The REAL Book Spy! (Link here.)

It’s really stunning to see my name alongside a list that includes names such as Tom Clancy, Vince Flynn, Nelson DeMille, Brad Meltzer, Daniel Silva, Brad Taylor, Ben Coes, and several other big-time names! (In fact, I am one of the few on the list who isn’t a New York Times Best-Selling author.)

Thanks, as always, for all of your all’s support. Especially the core group of you all who I jokingly refer to as Mitchell’s Militia. Your encouragement and help has been tremendous!

Hope everyone has a great Christmas! (And if you’re chasing your own dream, try to carve a couple minutes out during your time off in the coming days!)

Keep the faith,

Stan R. Mitchell

        No worries, you’re busy writing away, something I need to do more of!

    Stan –
    Great news of course, and one huge fact is a bit startling: With ‘only’ three books, you’re on a list of the top writers with 4-5-6 (or more) times as many already published.
    Kicking ass and taking names brother – keep it up.
    Semper Fi,

      You know, I hadn’t thought of it from that angle! lol.

      That’s why this Sgt in the dirt needs command oversight from a man who can see such obvious things from a higher level!

    Stan, Congratulations on making this impressive list! Meant to send u a note earlier. Just goes to prove that I know a great writer when I recognize one! Lol. Always recommend you to my book friends as you have received additional fans from me talking about your exciting novels. After this, you and I will be known as the “go to author” and reading friend. ;).

    Thank you so much for sharing your world of imagination. You have provided this reader with much reading enjoyment. I’m always eager to begin a new story with your name on it.

    Wishing you a blessed and very MERRY CHRISTMAS with continued success in 2016.

    Catch you on the next page,my friend……

      Wow, Patty!!! Thank you so much for the incredible comment and for pushing my wares so hard!!! 🙂

      (One admin note, I took off your email so you didn’t have all kind of spam bots finding you. If you meant for it to be there — maybe you want others to be able to contact you or something? — then just let me know and I’ll put it back on there.)

      Again, thanks so much for all the love! (Both in the comment and in spreading the word for so long!!)
