Since I write a fair number of series books, readers often ask me whether there be a sequel. Here are my responses to that question as it pertains to the following titles:
- Marcus Glenwood series
- Book of Hours
- Marc Royce Adventures
- Heirs of Acadia series
Will there be another Marcus Glenwood book?
At present, Marcus is not expected to re-emerge, but because of the deep bond I still hold with that character, ten years after completing the work, anything is possible.
I know this probably does not satisfy, but just so you’re aware, I have been discussing with a publisher the possibility of doing a book about a woman attorney in central NC.
I just finished The Book of Hours, and I must know: Is there a sequel? I can’t believe you left me “hanging” with the last paragraph! Surely you finished that great story somewhere.
No, Book of Hours was a stand-alone. But for your information, I have recently started work on a new novel that takes me back to the combination of romance, faith, and drama that has sparked such interest in Book of Hours readers. It is so new it has not even received an official title yet.
Strait of Hormuz was unquestionably a winner! BUT, despite the most welcome and imminent availability of The Turning, Linda asked me to urge you to get busy working on the NEXT Marc Royce series! Does that speak volumes?!?
We are both awed by your ability to capture and communicate your incredible imagination in a way that draws us into the hearts and minds of the characters. You have a marvelous gift and are so gracious to be sharing it with us!
First of all, I’m delighted that you both enjoyed Strait. But I have to tell you, I have said a firm farewell to Marc and Kitra for the moment. Maybe in the future, who knows, but for now, well…
A study guide to go with The Turning, is available as a free PDF download.
I absolutely love the Heirs of Arcadia series. At the end of The Night Angel, there was an excerpt printed for the next book, listed as The Loyal Renegade. I was mystified as I had already purchased Falconer’s Quest. I read the excerpt and was happy it seemed to go on right from the end of The Night Angel. Then I picked up Falconer’s Quest and was disappointed to find it began much later in time. Where can I get a copy of The Loyal Renegade? I can’t find it mentioned on any of your book lists. I am reluctant to begin Falconer’s Quest until I find this missing book to read first.
Your comment is right on target. There was indeed another book intended between Angel and Renegade. But Janette Oke—with whom I wrote the original Acadia series and who retired because of ill health—felt good enough to return to writing, and asked if I would “hurry up and finish” that series, so we could do another. This new project with Janette became the trilogy called Acts of Faith, based upon the last chapters of the Gospels and the first three chapters of Acts. In any case, I “fast-forwarded” through time and encapsulated the drama intended as a separate book into the first three chapters of Loyal Renegade.
I hope you enjoy that final story in the series.
