What’s on First and News of a Sequel

I went out to T. I. Martin Airport this past Saturday to the Commemorative Air Force Open Hangar Day. The chapter of this organization that restores, exhibits, and flies vintage aircraft from World War II and after, has such events every second Saturday of the month. The members were friendly, and while there were few visitors, they invited me back to talk to the group about On Wings of the Morning. I left some books in their store and counted the day a success.

Below are some of the beautifully restored aircraft in their hangar:

I came back to an email from eLection Publishing, my publisher, with a contract attached for the sequel to Wings, titled (for now) On the Wings of Eagles. It should be out in late May, to correlate with Memorial Day. Look for news of the release here when the time comes!

I have written the third book in the Blue Horizon series, On the Wings of Angels, and am in the process of doing a final revision on it. And I am 21,000 words into On the Wings of Grace, which will bring the story up to 1959. Thank you for your interest and support and stay tuned!


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.
