As of today, I have the go-ahead to announce that the novel I spent the summer writing was, in fact, a 24 tie-in for Tor/Forge.
Currently titled 24: ROGUE, it is an all-new Jack Bauer adventure. It will feature everything fans of the series have come to expect: gunfights, close-quarters combat, explosions, car chases, some familiar faces from the past, some in-jokes, and, of course, the 24-hour ticking clock.
Until the manuscript receives final approval, I need to be circumspect with regard to the story’s details. Also, before the image above goes viral, that’s just a mock cover I made to inspire myself while I was writing the book — IT IS NOT THE BOOK’S ACTUAL COVER.
I also don’t yet have an official publication date; my current best guess is that it will come out some time in 2015.
When I’m able to say more, I will. For now, I’m just excited to be able to tell y’all this much. I’ve wanted to write a Jack Bauer adventure for many years, and I’m grateful to Tor/Forge and editor Melissa Frain for helping me cross this one off my tie-in-author wish list.
