Half Way There

Black Numeral Nine

I started writing On the Wings of Grace, the fourth book in the Beyond the Blue Horizon Series, late in January. Today I reached 40,000 words, which means it is halfway done. Since I write 1000 words a day (more or less), I should finish in time for tax filing. Odd how we measure time.

The sequel to On Wings of the Morning (published in late October, 2013), On the Wings of Eagles, will release late in May.

When I tell people the sequel is coming out, the question I hear most often is, “Is it about the same character?” I assume people would assume it is, but I suppose there’s nothing to stop me from launching into a whole new character and an entirely different story. But I have more to tell about Otto Kerchner, his family and friends—and enemies. If I can publish two titles a year, the last one should appear in November of 2017. Please save the date.

Even when that happens, I have more stories about this town and its people. There are back stories to be written and I want to re-tell the whole story from the point of view of Otto’s longsuffering sister Mata.

Anyhow, back to Book 4. I’ll tell you, Faithful Readers, that Otto ends up in prison in this one, that he escapes, and he also has to ditch an aircraft in the ocean. Plenty of adventures lie ahead.

If you’ve read On the Wings of Morning, I hope you enjoyed it. Thank you. If you haven’t, I think you’d like it. It’s available on Amazon.com or write me at danverner1@gmail.com and I’ll send you an autographed copy.

And you, Faithful Readers, thank you for being with me on this journey. Let us continue.



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.
