Prophetic dreams and visions? Dire warnings of imminent apocalypse? A man who impersonates Elvis Presley for his living resides in the same small town that was the birthplace of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz author L. Frank Baum. We all know that flying monkeys were a part of the journey to the mythical Land of Oz, but could they also be demons straight from Hell? This Elvis impersonator thinks so, as he sees them in his dreams and visions and also in the tangible reality of the streets of the rustic village of Chittenango, New York.
This man, named Jesse Same, has grown weary of the Elvis gig and desires to do something new with his music career. Likewise, he desires to have more time with his young son and that means wrestling him away from his manipulative and controlling ex-wife and her hard-driving new husband. They don’t subscribe to Jesse’s strong faith in Jesus and are troubled that the young son has developed his father’s passionate love for the Lord. How far would the ex and her husband go to keep the young son from Jesse? Would the young boy put himself into great danger in order to be with his dad?
As this man who is a dead-ringer for the King of Rock n Roll dreams prophetic dreams, the supernatural creeps through the cracks in the walls that separate it from the natural realm as those who are bound to this world may soon witness the end of the world as they know it. Will the man’s dreams and visions come to pass? Is there any hope for the individuals who appear in his dreams?

What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Keep writing and don’t give up; even if success seems unattainable. Write what you would like to read yourself, because if you fake it it’s going to to show. If you’re a fiction writer with a wild imagination, technical writing may not be your avenue for success. Again, devote considerable time to your craft and write what you love. Writing, like any other pursuit, is a muscle that needs to be flexed to grow in strength.
Jim Yackel is an author, columnist, blogger, video blogger, and Christian-Rock singer/songwriter/recording artist. He and his wife Roberta Lynn reside in upstate New York. His latest novel, titled “Dead-Ringer” was officially released Wednesday, April 10th, 2013.
In June 2010, Yackel released the Christian/End Times Fiction book titled “The Wayfarers: Five Feet From The Cabin Door.” In April of 2011 the prequel to Five Feet, titled “The Wayfarers | Walking Dreams” reached the marketplace. Walking Dreams is the beginning of the Wayfarers story, ergo the author suggests that it should be the first read by those who are new to the trilogy. “Jacob’s Trouble” is the exciting finale of the trilogy and was released on December 1st, 2011. A revised, omnibus edition to the “Wayfarers” trilogy is in the works, to be released before Christmas, 2013. Also under way is a new fiction release titled “The Sleepwalkers”.What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The inspiration hit me out of blue with no prior forethought. Certainly my Christian faith, world events, and love of music were motivators, as was the setting of a particular upstate New York town.
