I met Faith a few years ago though an online party and really liked her series concept of stories inspired by old hymns. Today I have the privilege of hosting her and her new release Be Thou My Vision on my blog. Please give Faith a warm welcome.
Day 12 of Faith Blum's Be Thou My Vision Blog Tour
Blog Tour Question #24: Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
The Hymns of the West series is probably going to be different from any series you have ever read. The first book introduces most of the main characters, is a Young Adult adventure in 3rd person from different points of view (POV), and can be read as a standalone. The second book is a romance story in 1st person and needs to be read with book 3 to get the whole story. Book 3 is also a romance story, but is in 3rd person from an omniscient POV and introduces more new characters.
Book 4 is a mystery and I haven’t decided what person to write it in yet. Book five’s story idea might become a subplot in book 4 or might be an individual romance novel. Book six (or five) is a coming of age/new adult book about a young man’s life gone wrong. And book seven (or six), if I decide to write it, will be a coming of age novel.
I am curious to see what my readers think as I continue to write my unusual series.
Description of Be Thou My Vision (Hymns of the West Book 2):
The church was empty when I dragged myself out of the pew and headed out the door. As I opened the door, the corner of my eye caught a flicker of movement which I chose to ignore. I walked down the steps and was nearly bowled over by two wild boys. With arms grown strong and quick from man-handling two brothers growing up, I grabbed the two boys before they had a chance to escape me.
Anna Stuart is comfortable with her life. She may be a 30 year old spinster, but she has her routine and enjoys taking care of her father and older brother. One letter shatters all her routines, comfort, and enjoyment. After learning of her brother’s death, Anna feels like her life will never be the same again.
Then she meets two motherless boys. Did God place them in her life to lead her to a new vision of life? Can she trust God to give her the desires of her heart before she even knows what they are?
