Chobani: Not Just Greek Yogurt

February 24, 2012 in Characters

The following is a blog written through one of the characters from my book The Wayfarers | Jacob’s Trouble, which is the final part of the Wayfarers fiction trilogy. If you’d like to find out more about this character, be sure to read the book or Kindle download. Most importantly, read the entire trilogy! – God bless you, Jim Yackel.


The world is mine. What I say is so, because I am the leader you have waited for! I bring peace and prosperity, and a new world vision. We are one, people – I said we are one!

Repeat after me: WE – ARE – ONE!

Christian bigotry will not be tolerated and the Bible is outlawed. Beyond that, there will be no more religious intolerance because you all worship the same spirit of the same god. You might call him Allah but that is not quite right. You might call him Buddha but that isn’t accurate…

…But whatever you do, do not mention the name Jesus in my presence or you will meet the death kiss of my wrath! And true, we are one world, but I had better not hear of any FM stations playing that insipid former MTV staple We Are the World. That song is worse than the drivel that was played on K-LOVE before I had that “positive and encouraging” rubbish taken off the air!

I am suave, sophisticated, devilishly handsome and possessed of acute intelligence. I am an economic mastermind and a peacemaker extraordinaire. I have all the answers to the world’s problems because simply put, I am the answer! Ah, pardon my sarcasm, but do those statements smack of a lack of humility?

America is no longer a superpower but instead a part of the North American Union; which is one of my 10 kingdoms. Yes, the world is now a better place because we are one, WE – ARE – ONE!

Now that those Jesus freaks were taken away by our friends from a distant planet, to whom we owe a debt of gratitude, we can be one government, one religion, one economy, and one world united in peace!

Repeat after me, WE – ARE – ONE!

This is far too easy. I have the world in the palm of my hand and when I say jump you all ask “how high?” And it seems like the citizens of the erstwhile U.S.A. are the most Pavlovian of all you dogs!

My name is Dante Chobani, and I am the king of the world.

The Wayfarers | Jacob's Trouble by author Jim Yackel

The final book of the Wayfarers trilogy is coming December 1st…

Six months after America’s worst day – that being a wave of terror attacks on the east coast – the nation has fallen to its knees. The Christian church has been raptured home – or were the UFO’s in the sky an indicator of a massive alien abduction instead? The U.S. Dollar is on the verge of collapse as rioting and looting mar the streets of the country’s population centers and Martial Law is still in effect – but there are some new sheriffs in town and they are bent on taking over the traditional means of enforcement. Television and radio are being controlled and only one network is left to report the news of the world. It seems that even the weather forecasts are being massaged!

A young man and his brother are being watched by the “new sheriffs” and he is led to head out back in an effort to stay on the “down-low.” But, how far out back or how far away will he and his brother have to go in an effort to stay safe? Will they end up going it alone, or will they meet others along the way to make whatever journey they take a safe one? Will a new man on the world scene have any influence on the events that transpire in the lives of the young man, his brother, or the world?

This could be a journey where the end is the beginning at a time when the world is seeing the beginning of the end…

Jacob’s Trouble will be released in soft-cover, Kindle download, and PDF e-book on Thursday, 12/1/11 through Amazon and Lulu. Additionally, Wayfarers t-shirts and hoodies are available now – with other shirts soon to follow.


Christmas is coming, and all three books as well as some shirts would make terrific gifts for the wayfarers on your list!

The Wayfarers Trilogy by Jim Yackel

The Wayfarers Trilogy by Jim Yackel


WALKING DREAMS

Can’t anything go right!?

He’s a bright, industrious, and creative man whose world is falling down around him as his very life has become imperiled. As he teeters on the precipice of total breakdown; an automobile’s mechanical failure forces this man without an address to begin a walk that was intended to take him to his place of lodging – but would he ever make it there? What colorful and potentially impactful individuals would he meet while on his unplanned walk?

While life is tough for our friend; there are others who have it tougher. The suffering individuals that he meets along the way will bless him, enlighten him, and help to prepare him for an epic journey where he will be called upon to play a role of leadership to others as the Unites States of America is inflicted with severe trauma.

FIVE FEET FROM THE CABIN DOOR

The world has been flipped on its head as a distressed young woman is rapidly spinning toward rock-bottom and feels compelled to take a walk to try to clear her mind and relieve her burdens. Little does she know that she does not walk alone; but who or what is walking with her? Does it mean her harm or will it ultimately save her? What on earth drove her to come down to this desolate path? Where does this path lead?

That same day, a spirit-led man is compelled to take a walk because there is a calling he must answer. There is no time to ask questions, and he too finds that he is not walking alone. Time is of the essence as the landscape and the world as a whole may be changing; albeit suddenly and not for the best. Are these individuals running from trouble, or are they running to a sanctuary that will bring them safety and security? The stage has been set for the culmination of preparations years in the making…
