Dear Friends, thanks for joining us for my Leeward Set writing update! I’m happy to report to you that my new novel, Tears in the Wind, Book Two in The Leeward Set, is coming along nicely. Yes, I’m a little behind in getting my end done before I send it off to Dee, but I believe the extra time will be worth it. It’s full of hidden enemies, jungle warfare, modern pirates, and a bounty hunter with an unholy zeal to kill for money. How will God’s people ever survive?
Fury in the Storm, Book One
Did you previously read Sea Scribe? If so, then you’ve read Fury in the Storm! I’ve decided to rename Sea Scribe, update it (though I’m keeping the story the same), give it a new cover, and write a new sequel, calling the two books, The Leeward Set. I’m planning to release them close to the same time (aiming for early fall), so you’ll be able to move directly from Book One into Book Two. And because many of you have read Sea Scribe in past years, I’ve decided to have Fury in the Storm available for FREE for a limited time! Watch our posts for that news when both novels are finished.
The Sequel, Tears in the Wind
That’s right! If you enjoy the first book, Fury in the Storm, I think you’ll love this sequel, Tears in the Wind, with many of the same characters. We’ll now see the team transition from North Korea to an international cry for help—child soldiers need to be rescued from the front lines of terror. Christians have rarely dared to face a greater mission abroad!
The enemies are crueler. The action is abundant. The most brutal killers resist God’s grace, and violent hearts smirk at the message of the Cross. There is loss. And suffering. And tears. But our God proves He is still good and mighty!
The Adventure Continues
It hasn’t been easy to write and develop the sequel story from Fury in the Storm. But I don’t want to give anything away . . . I can tell you that Tears in the Wind will take us on a voyage from Africa to Asia, through high seas and humid jungles.
As it heads to Dee in the next weeks, we’ll keep you posted on the time of release. Since another COIL novel is on the line-up as well, I’d better kick it into gear for you!
Remember, without sacrifice, there is no redemption. See you on the next page!

Prayer Prompt: Pray for protection for the Vision Beyond Borders teams taking Bibles into closed countries. Latest from the VBB newsletter: “Over the past several weeks we have seen significant tightening of restrictions to distribute Bibles inside of China. Be in prayer for this country and the entire area as it seems that spreading the truth of Jesus Christ is becoming increasingly more difficult.”
