The latest news on the Nick Woods series

Hey guys!

Hope everyone is doing well! Wanted to give you a quick update on the Nick Woods series. I’m nearly finished writing the next book, which would be the fourth in the series.

Nick and the members of Shield, Safeguard, and Shelter (S3) deploy to Nigeria to tangle with Boko Haram in the fourth installment of the series. (For those who don’t know about Boko Haram, the group “has killed 20,000 and displaced 2.3 million,” according to Wikipedia. You may know them best for all the young girls they’ve kidnapped, which even garnered the attention of our First Lady.)

The working title is “Nigerian Fire,” which should tie in fairly nicely with the titles “Afghan Storm” and “Mexican Heat.” Having said that, we’re still brainstorming, so if you have something better, please share it!!

Sold Out_CoverAnd for goodness’ sake, if you haven’t started the Nick Woods series, you seriously need to start here: “Sold Out.” Like, today.

Matter of fact, if you have any doubts about whether you’ll enjoy the story, you can click the image of the book cover at left and go to a really cool embedded preview of the book, where you can read an extended sample and adjust font size to make it easier to read.

As of the last time I checked, “Sold Out” has earned more than 320 reviews and spent most of its life in the Top 100 on Amazon, alongside the likes of Vince Flynn and Brad Thor. I know I’m biased, but I really think you’ll enjoy it and the rest of the series, if you’re a new subscriber and haven’t tried it.

That’s it from here! Can’t wait to get you the next book before too long. (And, no, I’m not saying when! lol. Have played that game once before, and I don’t intend to again!)

Keep the faith,

Stan R. Mitchell

A question on book prices and reader expectations

I need some help on some research from all my members in Mitchell’s Militia!

So, I just got a 4-star review on my book “Little Man,” and here is what the reviewer said:

“Didn’t expect much from this when I picked it up but it was very entertaining and the ending had a little twist to it to boot.”

Now, my question is, “What made them not expect much?”

Does the fact that the Kindle version is only $2.99 make you not expect much?

And if you buy Kindle books, how much do you typically pay?

And do you think I should consider moving the price up to $3.99 or $4.99? (Many of the self-published Westerns are $2.99, so it’s a softer field, as far as prices go…)

Love some input from you all. I’m WAY too close to it!

Keep the faith,

 If you enjoy fast-paced books, you just might like my works. “Sold Out” tracks the life of a legendary Marine Sniper after a CIA unit decides to kill him for reasons of national security. “Little Man, and the Dixon County War” tells the uphill fight a young deputy faces after finding himself in the sights of a mighty cattle baron. And “Soldier On,” a short novel, follows the lives of several German soldiers in a depleted infantry company trying to make it through the final, miserable months of World War II.
