Social media, God, Alt-left, and Alt-Right meet on American streets in Fortress: a Wayfarers Story in Kindle and paperback

What Will You Do If This Story Comes True?

First off, I must point out that there is occasional strong language in this book, as I always endeavor to depict realistic speech of characters.

As I was writing Fortress: a Wayfarers Story, I knew that so much of it was not fiction at all. Like most of my fiction, the story deals with the natural and supernatural struggles undertaken while navigating the contemporary storms of this fallen world. However, with Fortress, I feel as though not only me, but all of us have been inserted into the story as characters; many of us against our wishes. We have been dragged into the battle between God and Satan; much of it being fought in American streets with soldiers of alt-left and alt-right slugging it out. Wealthy commanders who peer down from their ivory towers issue the orders to the foot soldiers through television talking heads of the mainstream news and the mavens of social media. The multi-layered fog of deception belched from the exhaust ports of this misdirection machine obfuscates the truth, and creates the appearance that Satan is winning. If you tell that lie often enough, it will become the truth.

Fortress is today. It’s gritty. It illustrates what happens when God is asked to leave the building. It details who the world’s powers are, and previews the fulfillment of their machinations. While you may not be an indie journalist, author, or singer/songwriter, you are a character in this story.

The Wayfarers end-times, christian fiction suspense book in Kindle and paperback

The Wolf

The wolf is out there and it’s tailing you; whether you’ve come to grips with that fact or merely live in blissful denial…

*A blog co-written by a pair of characters who appears in the novel The Wayfarers: Revised Edition. Read the book in Kindle, Kindle Unlimited, or paperback, and you’ll discover who they are.


The wolf is out there and it’s tailing you; whether you’ve come to grips with that fact or merely live in blissful denial…

Not all wolves are evil; just the one that lurks in the shadows of your life. He’s out of sight; hidden in the self-induced blindness of your deliberately-narrowed periphery. You can’t drink him away, drug him away, eat him away, or wish him away. Friend, the wolf will devour you if you fail to take substantive action against him.

You feel his presence, surely enough. In your spirit he arouses those feelings of anxiety, agitation, impatience, discomfort, and fear. But you fail to deal with the wolf – you merely take out your disquiet on everyone around you. Indeed, your aggression is displaced because you know that it won’t defeat the Wolf. To the contrary, your anger, pain, and boastfulness only fuel and feed the wolf and further strengthen his flexible haunches so as to explode onto you and defeat you!

So, go ahead…live in private denial and blame everyone else for your public pain. Take it out on those around you and let your therapist tell you that it’s “completely normal.” Have a few more drinks and boast about how many you can put away. Waste more money on lottery tickets – with the hope that this time you’ll “hit the big one.” But what would you do with the money? If I were a gambler, I’d bet a dollar to a donut that you’d blow your big winnings on Wolf Chow. Yeah, you’d have more money to allow that beast to eat better!

Friend, you must deal with and eliminate the wolf, or he will devour you.

Remembering Will by author Jim Yackel

Remembering Will – Cover Reveal and Synopsis

My latest fiction novel release Remembering Will is hitting Amazon in Kindle format as of this writing.  The paperback version is planned for release at some point toward the end of the first week of May.

What is the story about? What follows is the back cover description which serves as the synopsis:

Memory is pain, but there are some things he’ll never forget…

At thirty-nine years of age, Will Gailey is an “over the hill” singer-songwriter who leads a rock band that the music business doesn’t consider to have the “now” sound. A trauma has rocked his world, and as a result his memory of events has been severely affected. Will can remember the lyrics and chord changes to his songs, but there are other things that seemingly he’s forgotten. Will has always enjoyed fishing, but even that relaxing activity has become a source of frustration. He’s become angry and disassociated, and has turned from the one thing that could bring him peace and healing. And where that one thing is concerned, that’s where his anger and the blame for his physical and spiritual pain are errantly directed. In his mind, that one thing is the cause for his loss and his suffering.

Months after the trauma, Will continues to suffer crushing headaches. He decides to take matters into his own hands as what is supposed to heal his anguish is only exacerbating it. He’s become weakened, vulnerable, and open to spiritual torment. He’s alone and in need of help, but when people come into his life that can be of assistance he’s apt to reject them. Vivid dreams, visions, and hallucinations occur, and in them are both the help he needs and likewise persecution. Will was a strong man, but now there’s a strong man that’s found a breach and is creating havoc in his life. Will remembers how to defeat the strong man, but it seems that he’s chosen to forget.

Will has changed, but band mates and friends remember how he “used to be.” Can he be the way he used to be again?

Don’t forget to get your copy of Remembering Will!

Dear Seekers of the Truth

Dear seekers of the truth in 2013,

My name is Galen Moss, co-founder of the North Madison Militia. I fought in Afghanistan and Iraq, and I did something that most would consider to be heroic – except those high-up in the U.S. Government. What I did was a defiance of direct orders, whereby altering their perceived timeline. What I did was reported as breaking news a few years later and the credit was given to others. But no, I’m not bitter anymore because I’m free…

If you’re still reading this then at the very least you’re curious and optimally you are a seeker of the truth.

Don’t trust the government. Indeed, it sounds like a hackneyed cliche’ and it is; but most importantly it is T-R-U-T-H truth! But what I have learned is that the ultimate truth is simple, pure, and it saves.

Friends, you need to shift out of the Left-Right paradigm because it is fog that will impair your ability to see the truth on the road ahead. Politicians on both sides are self-serving dogs that ultimately answer to the Pavlovian society known as the Illuminati.

The Illuminati does Satan’s bidding and manipulates world events because they believe that a one world economy will ultimately bring those who are its members even greater wealth. As you read this, they are constructing a singular religion, government, and yes, a singular financial system that eliminates the U.S. Dollar. Unless you have your head up your ass – and most in your current culture and society do – you’ve heard of the New World Order and the One World Government. They are one in the same and at the time of this writing America is on burrowed time. You, dear friends, truly don’t have much time left! You see, America is the lone superpower and for the “one world corporation” to be fully implemented, the aforementioned “lone superpower” needs to be collapsed out its position of superiority.

The powers that be will continue through DARPA to modify the weather with the use of H.A.A.R.P. They will allow terrorists to strike. They will collapse the Dollar and create massive civil unrest and rioting. Indeed, the powers that be will come for your guns and implement Martial Law.

Then, there will be no superpowers in the one world system – except for the supernaturally-empowered man who will run it. The current powers will soon find that they have been duped and truly have no power at all!

As I alluded to in the first paragraph, I had a secret that what remains of the visible U.S. Government wanted me to keep quiet. But, there are multitudes of secrets and those who tell them usually wind up dead. Could Michael Hastings be an example? Will Edward Snowden be next, or is he a carefully-crafted distraction manipulated by the powers that hide in the shadows?

I guess that I should be flattered that I’ve been made a fictional character in a novel titled Dead-Ringer by author Jim Yackel. You know, he ought to be careful too!
