A Couple of Notes about Titles

Eagle SoaringFaithful Readers might have noticed that I refer to the titles in the Wings series as “working titles.” They can be changed, and the ones I have for them might be changed by the publisher (I know you’re out there, publisher. I can hear you breathing!)

Anyhow, I had in mind these titles for the series of five books (formerly a trilogy):

1. On Wings of the Morning (I like this one and hope I can keep it.)

2. On Eagle Wings Upborne

3. On the Wings of the Wind

4. The Ways of the Eagle

5. Beyond the Blue Horizon

The first four titles are drawn from the Bible; the fifth, obviously was  a popular song, but it fits the themes of the last book well. I’ve decided to put the titles with “wind” in the together, and the ones with “eagle” in them together as well. So the sequence would be:

1. On Wings of the Morning

2. On the Wings of the Wind

3. On Eagle Wings Upborne

4. The Ways of the Eagle

5. Beyond the Blue Horizon

I hope all this is not too confusing or upsetting. I have the manuscript copies out to about ten beta readers now, so I hope they won’t mind the title change. It’s a working title, after all. The one constant in our lives is change. I’ve noticed that, and it’s a theme of the books.

Hang in there, readers! A new day’s coming!



About huckfinn47

I taught high school English for 32 years, all at Robinson High School in Fairfax, VA. My students called me "Mr. V," and I was fortunate to have some terrific young people in my classes. I have made contact with some of them, particularly on Facebook, and enjoy seeing what they're up to. My other nickname, given to me by our then assistant pastor Jim Vaught, is Lieutenant Dan, after the Gary Sinise character in Forrest Gump, one of my favorite movies. I never got anywhere near military service, so the name is somewhat ironic. I greatly admire our troops and respect their sacrifices. On the Wings of Morning is my first novel worth talking about.
