"It is cold, unyielding, and unhelpful—that is what Augustine is feeling, like he's getting no guidance from anywhere." Will Stone Angels have a sequel? Possibly, but not until Hartigan's next writing project, most likely a collection of his travel writings, is complete. But even if he does not embark on a sequel soon, he envisions having some of his characters, such as Augustine Shaw, make appearances in future works of fiction. Like most artists, Hartigan enjoys the overwhelm- ing response his book has garnered. "Hearing readers say they truly enjoyed the story is motivation enough for me to dive into writing the next book," Harti- gan confesses. "The next one is up there, in my head, ready to go."
