2016 – The year of change

Hi everybody!

First of all, I’d like to thank each and every one of you for reading my books, I appreciate you more than you know.

Now, as the title suggests, this blog post is about change.

I’ve had more changes occur in my life in the first 8 months of this year than in any decade I can remember. To be fair, I have led a boring life. However, within a matter of months, one of my sisters became seriously ill, another died suddenly, and just weeks after her passing, my father also passed away.

Other than the loss of dear family, I’ve also gone through a personal transformation of the heart, mind and soul. I was always someone who considered myself to be spiritual, but only in a New Age sort of way. That’s all changed and I am now a born-again Christian, and I proclaim Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.

As if that wasn’t enough of a transformation, in a short time I’ll be moving far away from the urban area where I’ve lived my whole life and will be living amid farms and woodland.

So yeah, the first 8 months of 2016 I’ve seen many changes and I don’t think that they’ll be slowing down anytime soon.

That said, there are some alterations that I’ll be making in regards to my writing career. For starters, the 2nd. Taken!/Tanner book has been postponed indefinitely and I apologize to those of you who have been waiting for it.

However, the new Blue Steele book, PAST SINS, is still on track to be released on September 27th as promised. I plan to include Jessica White and her very capable husband in the book as they, along with Blue Steele, handle the aftermath of the events in Taken! 18. Blackwood and his men are still at large and Mr. White, Jessica, and Blue are out to hunt them down.

The bad news for you Tanner fans is that I’m not sure when I’ll be releasing a new Tanner book. I expect life to become somewhat hectic over the next few weeks during the move and I don’t want to promise a certain date.

I plan to write another blog post in a few weeks to let everyone know what’s going on, but until then, stay safe and love your family and friends as if you’d never see them again, because really, we never know what’s around the corner.

My best to you,

Remington Kane

    Dear Donald/Remington, I hope the rest of your year will be much better than how it began.
    Not being a Christian or religious myself I still think it’s great you found your faith, and I hope it gives you comfort and strength. Looking forward to anything you write – whenever the inspiration/energy is back 🙂
    Be well and take care!

    Hi Donald,
    Wow! A lot of changes for you in such a short period of time. I can relate somewhat to what you have been going through in that I lost my oldest son at his age of 41. You never get over the loss, but you learn that you must accept what the good lord has in store for all of us. You cannot change was has occurred in the past so you simply must carry on as best you can. I wish you well for the future.

  16. Glenn Hare says:

    I have, over the last two months read all of the Tanner books,the complete taken series, and the Blue Steel books.I have now started the Caliber books of which I have read two already that is a total of about 41 books. I have never been so completely taken over by an author as I have been by you. I can’t seem to get enough so please continue to keep writing. I am 67 yes old and have been married for 44 yes and this is the only time my wife has ever said anything about divorce. I still can’t stop reading. I love your writing and the content of your books. A devoted reader.

  17. Glenn Hare says:

    Please forgive me for my previous comment. I did not read your beginning comments about the start of your 2016 with your losses. You have my deepest sympathies

  18. Jenny says:

    Hi, wow you have been through a lot. I am sorry for your losses. I am happy to hear you have Jesus in your heart. I will always be waiting to read whatever you write as your talent is wide. The country life is most freeing, at least to me. Enjoy your life and keep us updated. I hope all things in your life keep getting better,
    Faithful reader

    I am so sorry for your loss. Life can really suck at times. Sometimes it us easier to cede your free will to an entity that makes all your decisions for you. Just beware of groups claiming to resolve your deep seated hurt by proclaiming their way is the righteous path to enlightenment. Sometimes you need to take a step back, take a deep breath, and really really look at what is being offered. As a Christian I am aware of groups that promise what cannot be delivered.

  20. Remington Kane says:

    Thank you for reading my books, Glenn. I really appreciate it. There’s a new Blue Steele coming out on September 27th and TAKEN! & TANNER will be making an appearance in it, along with Jake Caliber.

  21. Natasha Isaacs says:

    Sorry about your loss and heartaches. People say when it rains it pours! Maybe channel some of your emotions iin your later books! Maybe have Tanner and White work together so they can bondf since they are family. Maybe corporate a way for the little boy from the woods to become the other Tanner’s adopted son somehow, so he can have a family. Through your loss give the characters a little happiness and family! You are one of my favorite authors, and only have a few. I tracked this page and you to here to see what what happened with the next Tanner novel and seen your post. I hope you start healing your soul.

  22. Remington Kane says:

    Hi Natasha,

    Thank you for the kind words and comments. Yes, the past year has changed my outlook on life and that will be reflected in my writing.
    Thanks for reading!
