  3. Steve, Love the new look web site. I was checking in to get the date for Disciple and was surprised to find the new look. Great feature with the audio on the book page where you tell us about each book and how it came to be.

    Thanks for all the great reads.

    and with Veterens day just past

  4. Mr. Coonts,

    Great new site, really fits like a glove. I not sure if you remember me, I and the Security Director in Dallas Texas, you know my brother. Can you resend me your email address, it got erased in the transfer to a new provider.

    Cant wait till the 8th!

  5. Hi Steve,
    great new site… good work.
    I can’t wait to lay my hands on your new book. Next week I’m flying to L.A., hope it’s on sale by then!
    All the best from The Netherlands,
    Filip and Renate.

  6. Author Jeremy Robinson told me I’d enjoy your site. Sounded like you may give him a blurb for his new thriller. He blurbed my first novel, designed the cover and interior, and mentored me through the self publishing process, used as a tool toward garnering an agent, after years of trying to dig out of the yard and be a young dog in the sun. Now I’ll take being an old dog in the rain, as long as it gets me published. I have found Tom Monteleone, as editor and friend, an old dog like me who is as generous as you sound in your words for writers, here. We’re polishing my new thriller, getting ready to pitch it to agents, even as the first novel goes out to movie types and those rare agents who might represent a self pub’d novel. If any writers are listening, do what Mr. Coonts is telling you here. I did not listen when young, full of piss and vinegar, determined to write what I wanted, not what the market required. My ears got pinned back and two decades fled past, but I’m still pitching, now, with knowledge first and emotion last, as Mr. Coonts advises. Stay the course y’all, and we might grow up to be Stephen Coonts if we live long enough. Thanks again, Stephen, for great tales and kind words- Charlie Colley

  7. Hi! That is real cool about The Cannibal Queen flying through your blog. As much as I thoroughly enjoy all your books the Cannibal Queen was real personal.

  8. Hi! Retired, did volunteer work for five years, quit that because of bureaucracy, started reading four to five books a week, found your books at public library, now on my sixth one. Write fast so I won’t run out!! And, thanks a lot!!

  9. Just finished ‘The Disciple’. Outstanding piece of work. Maybe you can give some pointers to our current administrators on the proper method of dealing with those who don’t care what their footprint is doing to the world, and I’m not speaking of carbon. I have read all of your books, and see a kindred spirit.

  10. Thanks for all the entertainment you’ve provided me via your writing since I discovered your books. I now find myself facing the problem of having read everything you’ve published! I patiently (or not) await your next work.

  12. G’say:

    Really like your books. Ex Navy myself, albeit enlisted and Av Ordnanceman.

    What I really want to know is the order in which I should read the Grafton novels. I got a bunch of them but want em all–can I get a list?

    Richard Robie

    January 24, 2010 at 10:09 am

    • Richard…..
      Read them in order, starting with “Flight of the Intruder”. They do build on each other so reading them out-of-order would be less satisfying. If you go to Steve’s home page, you’ll see all the “Grafton” novels on the bookshelf listed in the proper order.

  14. Just finished “Assassin”. Great read and Jake kicks butt again. No kidding.

    Mr Coonts,

    We met years ago in Reading, PA as I sat with you under the wing of an A-6 signing books for the Mid Atlantic Air Museum. OK, you were signing, I was sitting.
    Anyway, I haven’t stopped reading you since then although I have to admit to waiting until the paperback came out.
    My job at that time entailed lost of flying so I’d wait impatiently for your next book to come out so I could start it. I never read much before that but between you and Nelson DeMille I made up for lost time.

    I moved to Florida from the Reading area but stay in contact with MAAM.
    Retired 3 years ago to reading and riding my Harley around Florida.

    Just wanted to say how much I still enjoy your books.

    Thanks for enjoyable reading.

  17. Mr. Coonts, I have begun reading your Jake Grafton novels and I love them. I just wanted to ask, do you think you will come to South Carolina to speak or autograph books?
    Thank You,

  18. Hey Steve – just spent some time enjoying the videos on your web site. Very cool! Hope you’ll swing by Buckhannon sometime on your tour – always enjoy the chance to catch up and go flying !!! Right now I’m working in Hilton Head, SC (kayaking, not really “working”!). I’ll be in Buckhannon for most of the summer – Frank says “hello”! Take care. Jean

  20. so…we see through the website that you are working on a new novel. I go to get details and there is nothing about it. Where to get the info? I finished the Disciple more than a month ago! UGH…What is Tommy getting into now?

  21. Hey Shooter,
    What a dynomite site. I even like the little old guy in the flight jacket. Need a BUFF going by the window rather than a UFO though.

    Next time your over at Deer Creek, swing on down to Athens (Mercer County). I’ll buy the coffee and you can teach me about trees.


  22. What a terrific website. I just finished listening to the audio book Traitor and I loved it. I have to drive every weekend for about 3 hours so it made the trip more enjoyable.
    I’m sorry I didn’t read the Tommy Carmellini books in order.
    Used to live in Winchester right near West Virginia.

  23. I have read Under Siege and The Traitor and I truly enjoyed both books. I was surprised and I must admit pleased to learn that you are originally from West Virginia. I live in Columbia, SC now but am from Kingwood which isn’t far from your home town. I very much like your website and will certainly visit again to learn more about your farm, firearms, and arrow heads. Hope to read another book soon. Thank you! Greg Lehman

  24. Mr. Coonts,

    I love your books. They are the best I have read in a long time. Every time I pick up a new one I feel as though I am picking up a friend from the airport, but the sad part is when you get to the end it’s time to say good bye. At least till I get my hands on the next one. All your books are out of this world great, but I love your Jake Graften, and Tommy Carmellini books. I have only started to read your books I have read about 6 of them, but I am a fan of yours forever. John

  26. Hello again. I have finished eight of your books and am starting number 9. Of course, I did not keep them in order. The themes, the technology, and the ‘what if’ aspect make a person sit up. It’s not science fiction any more. Grafton is cool, and Carmelini is priceless. Do you ever sign books in California? Santa Rosa Borders is a great store. See ya, Jan

    • Jan, he met people and signed books at the AFCEA conference in San Diego in late January, 2011, so yes, he does sign books in California! I got two from him!

  27. I believe I have read every one of your novels and I get a little depressed when I finish one and know it will be a spell before you publish another. When is your next big meaty novel going to come out in 2011?

    best regards!

  30. Hello Mr. Coonts,

    I have just begun your newest book in your Deep Black Series, Death Wave. I enjoy these very much. My question though is when will you be returning to the Grafton-Carmelini series that you write so well. I just reread the Disciple and truly wish that the ending in that book could have really happened to the current regime. Thanks for all of your great stories. Look forward to reading more. Tom

  31. I’ve been a fan since you wrote Flight of the Intruder. Might you ever go back & write a ‘fill-in’ novel, say, when Grafton was a Commander? As a Navy brat I have really enjoyed those books, and yes, Carmellini, too!
    Thanks for the great stories; yours I buy in hardback.

  32. I am anxiously awaiting your next Grafton and/or Tommy book. I will also be starting reading your “Deep Black” series in the near future.

    I was wondering if you ever sign books in the Phoenix area?

  34. Hi Stephen. I have read every book that you have put out and it is hard to put them down once I start to read one. My question is , when are you going to have a new book out? I am anxiously awaiting a new one. I am a retired military man and are amazed at your thourgh-ness.

  36. Steve, I haven’t checked your site in quite a while. The redesign is very impressive-well done. I was just wondering, do you think Jake and Tommy might find some adventures in the South China Sea? Did Rip and Charley ever find anything in Australia? Thank you for your very enjoyable and intelligent stories. Jack Power, USN-Ret

  37. After reading “Final Flight ” i was fearful for Tommy Carmellini in “The Disciple”. One of the things I like about writing is the ability to do whatever you want with your characters. Jake Grafton was yours, sort of, because he had become ours. As a reader of your books I’m sure many were down when he died in Final Flight. I suppose you felt he could not go on like Dick Tracy? What if he wasn’t killed in the crash and shows up again at a later date!!?? From Kolkata a WV Hillbilly away for now from Huntington. I fly a 182.

  39. Hi Steve,
    I have only read Flight of the Intruder and Cannibal Queen so far, but I look forward to reading your other books. I’m ex-Navy enlisted ( fire control avionics aboard Oriskany 72-73) and also a pilot, so these two books have really hit home with me. I really like the website too.
