Coffee or Die Magazine sat down with Jack Carr for an interview over a cup of coffee for Coffee or Die’s latest installment of 11 Questions.
I am pleased to announce that the Department of Defense has finished their review of my second novel, True Believer, slated for release on July 30th, 2019.
When the team at Atria/Emily Bestler Books suggested that a video trailer would be helpful to promote my debut novel, The Terminal List, I knew I wanted to do something a bit outside the norm that would set a new bar in the publishing industry.
James Reece, the protagonist of The Terminal List, is an active duty SEAL but the weapon that he selects to begin his quest for vengeance in the book’s prologue is not something found in an armory in Coronado or Virginia Beach or even in the hands of a warrior downrange.
If you asked me what an ideal sniper rifle looked like before 9/11, I would have described a super-accurate custom bolt-action rifle chambered in .300 Winchester Magnum. After several combat deployments, including more than one as a sniper, I now think of a far different weapon: one that is lightweight, capable of sustained semi-automatic fire and has sufficient accuracy to take out targets at up to 500-800 meters.
I was fortunate enough to use a variety of different weapons during my time in the military, both in training and in combat. One of the most versatile of those weapons, and one that was my constant companion overseas, was the M4A1 carbine. With the M4, we were well-equipped to fight the enemy from across the room to hundreds of meters away. James Reece relies on his M4 as he takes the fight to his enemies in The Terminal List, just as I did in the War on Terror.
