Happy New Year!

I just wanted to take a quick second to wish everyone a very special, and Happy New Year!

2015 has been awesome for many reasons. It’s been my first year running this website. I’ve met a lot of great people, most of them huge Mitch Rapp fans like me, and we finally got The Survivor!

There’s several people I’d like to quickly mention, starting with the Flynn family.

To all of Vince’s relatives that have reached out to me, especially his brother Dan, It’s been an absolute honor getting to know you all. I look forward to talking more in 2016!

To my partner-in-crime and Rapp BFF, Stacy Reller: you absolutely rock! For those that don’t know, Stacy runs the incredible @VinceFlynnFans twitter account. When I popped up out of nowhere and launched this site, I was essentially stepping all over her turf – yet she never treated me that way. We’ve been partners and friends since day one. Stacy, thanks for your friendship and for always being that one person I can talk to about Mitch Rapp who gets as excited as I do!

To Emily Bestler: Thank you for your role in making sure the Rapp series continued. You are to Vince/Kyle what Irene Kennedy is to Mitch. We’re blessed to have you publishing and overseeing this franchise!

To David Brown and the publicity team at Atria Books: Thank you for your tireless effort to keep the excitement and buzz going around Mitch Rapp and The Survivor 24/7. The Mitch Rapp Ambassador program was brilliant, and a ton of fun for us fans. You guys are without a doubt the best in the business. Thank you for everything!

To all the followers of this site: I never once expected to have so many people signed up and following Mitch Rapp Fan. When I started the site, I wasn’t even sure anyone would visit it. I’m blown away and humbled each time I post something, as this site consistently gets thousands of views for each new post. My sincere thanks to each and every person that’s visited!

Last, but certainly not least, to Kyle Mills: Kyle, on behalf of the millions of Mitch Rapp fans around the globe, thank you for stepping up and not only continuing this series – but for elevating it! So many of us fans were nervous about another author writing Mitch Rapp, but you put every single one of those concerns to ease and delivered one of the best novels in the series. Also, thank you for graciously allowing me to interview you. That was the highlight of my year! For all of those things, and the many other things I could list (but won’t here) THANK YOU!

As great as 2015 was, I cannot wait to see what 2016 brings. We know for certain we’re getting Kyle’s second contribution to the series, which (from what we do know) sounds amazing. I’d be counting down the days already, but the official release date hasn’t been announced yet!

To all the great friends I’ve made on Twitter and Facebook, I wish you all a Happy New Year, and look forward to networking with you all in 2016!

See you all next year! Let’s make 2016 Rapp-tastic!

– Ryan


  1. Aww, thanks for the kind words about me Ryan! I feel like you have been very crucial in helping pump up the fellow fans for the release of “The Survivor” last year. And it is quite amazing at just how much Rapp knowledge you have and I know where to go if I ever have a question, or if I ever decide to get back working on that project of mine. I am so glad that our paths have crossed and have become friends. 2016 is going to be a fantastic year!
