FORT WORTH, Texas — A publisher says a former top Navy SEAL sniper and best-selling author who was fatally shot over the weekend had a second book in the works.

Sharyn Rosenblum said Chris Kyle was working on "American Gun: A History of the U.S. in Ten Firearms" with co-author William Doyle. Rosenblum is a spokeswoman for publisher William Morrow.

Kyle's book "American Sniper," written with Scott McEwen and Jim DeFelice, was released last January. As of Tuesday morning, "American Sniper" was Amazon's No. 1 seller.

Rosenblum said no release date has been set for the new book.

Kyle left the Navy in 2009 after four tours of duty in Iraq, where he earned a reputation as one of the military's most lethal snipers.

Eddie Ray Routh, a Marine veteran, has been charged in Kyle's killing Saturday.
