As I have been writing Be Thou My Vision, reading reviews, and hearing from my readers, I have come to a decision. My four book series is going to have at least five books, possibly six, possibly more as I continue writing. This new book will be book #3 in the Hymns of the West series and will be titled Amazing Grace.
The new order:
- A Mighty Fortress-Introduces the Brookings and Stuart families
- Be Thou My Vision-Follows part of the life of Jed Stuart’s sister, Anna
- Amazing Grace-Caleb and Iain Stuart’s journey
- The Solid Rock-Joshua Brookings must solve a mystery involving Elizabeth’s father
- Come Thou Fount-Ruth falls in love
Each book is a stand alone, but the background story will be better understood if all the books are read in order. Each story is also going to be a slightly different genre. Book #1 is a young adult adventure novel in third person from two main viewpoints, Joshua Brookings and Jed Stuart. Book #2 will be more of a romance in first person with Anna as the narrator. Book #3 , as far as I have figured out so far, will be part romance, part life-in-general story in either first or third person from the perspective of a ten-year-old girl. Book #4 will be a mystery in third person from Joshua’s perspective with the possibility of Elizabeth also having half of the story. Book #5 I’m not really sure of yet as I have yet to start planning it.
As always, I welcome any and all comments, questions, and suggestions.
