Frequently Asked Questions
Where can I see you on tour or order signed books?
Where can I find Orphan X merch?
My books have been translated into 33 languages, but not every book is in every language. Check with your local retailer on current availability and sign up for my newsletter to get the latest updates.
Where can I find Evan’s vodka?
Do I need to start the Orphan X series with book one or can I jump in anytime?
Jump in anytime. I make sure that each book can be read as a standalone. But if you're OCD like Evan and need the proper order, it's: ORPHAN X, THE NOWHERE MAN, HELLBENT, OUT OF THE DARK, INTO THE FIRE, PRODIGAL SON, DARK HORSE, THE LAST ORPHAN, LONE WOLF.
What are Orphan X's ten commandments?
- Assume nothing.
- How you do anything is how you do everything.
- Master your surroundings.
- Never make it personal.
- If you don't know what to do, do nothing.
- Question orders.
- One mission at a time.
- Never kill a kid.
- Always play offense.
- Never let an innocent die.
What’s going on with the TV series?
For the time being, all Evan Smoak-Hollywood dealings are on hold. Until he hears from a creative powerhouse he trusts as much as he trusts Tommy Stojack, he’ll stay hidden in the shadows far from the klieg lights. Update here soon.
Will you read my unpublished book/screenplay/poem/eulogy of Homer?
I’d love to. Really I would. But unfortunately, for legal reasons, I am unable to read unpublished manuscripts. I urge you find a critique group, a writing workshop, other aspiring authors at conferences, or kindly relatives to read your manuscript.
Will you blurb my upcoming book?
Congrats on your upcoming publication!
Because of my writing schedule, I am currently closed to blurbs, but if availability opens up, a member of my team will get back to you. I will not respond to blurb requests sent to me directly. Or sent by smoke signal. Those are inconvenient, given LA smog patterns, and I always get them wrong anyways.
Will you come to my book festival/conference/circus/charity ball?
If it’s fun and it fits in my schedule and we can figure out the arrangements, probably. Please email my publicist. Detecting a pattern here yet?
I finished the Orphan X series, what other books of yours should I read?
I recommend starting with THE SURVIVOR and YOU’RE NEXT.
Will there be more Tim Rackley books?
No plans for a new Rackley novel in the foreseeable future -- right now, it's all Orphan X all the time -- but I am exploring possibilities for Tim and Dray in film and TV.
Why can't I find a copy of LAST SHOT, the final Tim Rackley book?
Unfortunately, LAST SHOT is currently out of print and there isn't a set date for when it's going to be available as an e-book. It's something I have limited control over and I know how frustrating it can be. But get into a bidding war on eBay or try your local library. It is also available as an audio book.
Will you contribute a short story to my anthology?
I am generally busy with competing deadlines, but you can email my publicist.
If I mail you a book, will you sign it?
Unfortunately, due to the volume of requests I receive, I’m unable to sign books sent in the mail. Plus, the postage is wrong or they got lost and next thing you know, you’re camped out on my front lawn with a picket sign. Who needs that? Check my tour schedule to see when I’m coming to a city near you. If I’m not headed your way, you can always place an order through the independent bookstores I’m visiting. If you call ahead, I can even personalize it for you. And I’ll draw a smiley face too if you want.
Will you mail me a signed photo?
No, but Billie Eilish might. Come on, people. Do you really want a picture of me? I’m not very photogenic anyway, so I promise you’re not missing much.
If I send you an email, are you really going to read it?
Absolutely. I read every email that I receive. And though I can’t always respond to every email that comes in, I always appreciate when readers take the time to write. You are the apple of my eye, the wind beneath my wings, the…oh, never mind. Just know I love hearing from you.
Despite this excess of Greggness, are there more interviews I can listen to or articles I can read?
Absolutely! Click here.
