Amish fiction, Love Inspired Books Comments: 24

Some of you may have seen my announcement on Facebook that I’ve signed a contract with Harlequin/Love Inspired for 6 additional books in my Indiana Amish Brides series. I’m beyond excited and grateful. So today, I thought I’d share with you a peek into what’s Coming Soon

The following are all working titles and subject to change!

  • Book 3 – Amish Matchmaker
  • Book 4 – Her Amish Cowboy
  • Book 5 – His Second Chance
  • Book 6 – For Richer or Poorer
  • Book 7 – Her Secret Child
  • Book 8 – Amish Blessings
  • Book 9 – Trouble Times Two

All are Amish romances that focus on faith, family, and God’s grace in our lives. They’ll release over the next 4 years. I want to thank each of you. The fact that you read quality Christian fiction helps publishers choose to promote that type of fiction. We couldn’t do it without you!

Comment below with the first Amish book you remember reading, and I’ll draw one winner to receive an earlier release from my book closet. Our winner from the last post was Pamela Bain, who I’ve already been in contact with. (If your name is Pamela and you didn’t receive an email from me, it was a different Pamela.)

    I picked up a Beverly Lewis novel in my church library but it’s been so long I can’t remember the title. I’ve been an Amish reader fan for many years and have read too many to count. The first book of yours I read was also from my church library. That’s why after I read and review a Christian fiction book I always donate them to my church library. (Unless they are personally autographed.

    Congratulations on that well-deserved and surely hard-won contract! But seriously, 4 years?! I’d much prefer one a month. Get right on that, would you please? Hats off to you on your successes!

    A Simple Amish Christmas! You were my first introduction to Amish books & I’ve been hooked ever since! Thanks Vannetta! Congratulations on you new series!

  5. Debbie Earls

    I have read so many Amish books that I can’t remember what the first one was. It think it was probably a Beverly Lewis book. One of her older ones. Congratulations on your new books. Can’t wait to read them.

    Congratulations. The first I remember was Ellie by Mary Christner Borntrager in 1991. (Actually, I really didn’t remember; I looked in my journals because I knew about when it was).

  7. Debra Bearden

    Congratulations! I have already read A Widow’s Hope. It was very good. I have pre-ordered book 2. Very happy more will be coming. My frist Amish book was written by Beverly Lewis. It was years ago and I don’t remember the name.

    My first book was by Wanda Brunstetter. About five years ago and since then I believe I have read over 300 Amish Christian Fiction Books. I can’t see ever stopping I just love not only reading but the messages within the books. I’m looking forward to all your upcoming books. Good Luck all.

    Falling to Pieces is the first Amish book I remember reading. If there were others, they were not as memorable as yours. Loved the series and was hooked.

  10. Andrea B. Brooks

    the first amish book I remember reading is Falling to pieces, although I have read many others. This was the first title that popped into my head. Congrats on the new contract!!

    I just finished A Widow’Hope. Excellent as always. Now fixing to start Who the Bishop Knows. I have read everything you have written except the e-book. I have enjoyed everyone of your books. May God continue to Bless you in your writing.

    Congratulations on more LI books. A Widow’s Hope was a wonderful story and loved the skill of Jacob making special playhouses for disabled children.

    Carrie Bender’s books and Beverly Lewis are the first two Amish authors I read.

    The book was, “Roseanna of the Amish”, this was a very long time ago.
    Books about the Amish were not as numerous back then as they are now.

    Congrats on the new book contract! I so look forward to reading these new books! My first Amish book to read was a The Shunning by Beverly Lewis, and from that first Amish book, I have been hooked!

  17. Alison DeVito

    Great news – congratulations! The first Amish book I read was The Secret, by Beverly Lewis. The first Amish mystery I read (now I’m very into that genre) was your Murder Simply Brewed.

    I loved reading your comments. It’s amazing how many of us started out reading Beverly Lewis or Wanda Brunstetter. I think of both as the mothers of Amish fiction.
