Christian Fiction Bestsellers, May 2019

BIG thanks to readers for putting four of my stories on the ECPA Fiction Bestseller List in May. My new novel–Hearts in Harmony (Book 1 in the Amish Journeys series)–is enjoying its second month on the list since it released in March. Her Brother’s Keeper, (Amish Secrets series) an older book that’s made a comeback, is also on the list. And my stories in two novella collections are on the list in An Amish Home and An Amish Reunion.

Work in Progress Update

“I love deadlines. I love order. I love knowing when to have things done, having a plan to get them done, and then I imagine I would love the feeling of submitting something on time. Life, however, has been an entirely different experience for me.” –  from Ralene Burke in a blog post at

I can so relate to this. I’ve got a full-length novel (book #3 in my Amish Journeys series) dueMay 15th, so I’m on serious writing lockdown. Life has a way of interrupting my disciplined, orderly plan. I’ve had medical appointments, bronchitis, judged a literary contest, and squeezed in time for family and friends as much as possible. Where does the time go? 

Never fear! A Beautiful Arrangement will be submitted to my editor at Zondervan very soon. ☺ Please forgive me, once again, for publishing the newsletter a few days late. ☺


And….Family Fiction Magazine featured an interview with me in their April 2019 issue.

Two million books sold by author Beth Wiseman

My wonderful publishing team at Harper Collins Christian Fiction sent me this beautiful bouquet to celebrate this milestone.


Beth Wiseman, Amish fiction author, visits southern Indiana

If you follow me on Facebook, I imagine you’ve seen that I’ve been travelling to southern Indiana quite a bit recently. I recently shared a video on Facebook that I took from the deck of our little cabin overlooking the East Fork of the White River. If you missed it on Facebook, I’m posting it here on my blog.  I have a precious grandson that lives there and I spend as much time with him as I can. I have also been researching that area for my next series.
