The fifth novel in The End Times Saga goes through the first three and a half years of the seven year Tribulation. The new world leader and his religious leader deal with biblical sized disasters, two Jewish witnesses who preach the gospel and annoy the world's sinners, and the leaders' attempts at bringing the world under his control.

The Promise Road.

If ever there was a miracle, this story is one.

Once upon a time,
it was 1955. Eisenhower (‘Ike’) was President; a stamp cost three cents; Popsicles came two to a package; Elvis was twenty; and against all odds, young David Joe Fallon, Jr. and Jessie Marie Taylor were in love. The End. The beginning.

Innovo Publishing, LLC Releases The Tommie Scott Story: From Gangs, Drugs, and Crime to Soldier for Christ by Tommie Scott.

– Innovo Publishing, LLC released a new Christian title, The Tommie Scott Story, written by Tommie Scott. With Jesus, there is always hope, no matter how bad things are. The Tommie Scott Story is a true story—a true love story—but not of the usual variety.

This is a story of a gangbanger, drug dealer, and “hit man” who worked his way through the juvenile reform system and into a California state prison by age twenty. It’s the story of an angry young criminal with no remorse and no hope. And it’s here—in the depths of hopeless darkness—that this story begins again. It begins again with a humble, gray-haired man who was not ashamed to be a servant and to share the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes. It begins again with a new birth—a spiritual rebirth into God’s family through Jesus Christ. And it continues today with a repentant and joyful servant—a dedicated soldier for Christ—whose true story affirms God’s Word that says, “… neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:38, NIV).

 

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Ephesians 2:10, NIV).

On sale for $.99 on Amazon from today until December 6. Currently has 5 reviews and rated 4.5 stars.

Can a nineteen year old stay true to the faith he was brought up on when he's under the spotlight?

Timothy Phillips dreams come true when he's discovered by the producer of a national talent show. So what's the problem? The recording contract is not in the Southern Gospel he would prefer to sing. As he begins recording and performing the music, he encounters increasing hostility towards Christians. Can he stay true to his faith, or will he end up compromising his beliefs little by little the more famous he becomes?

When his world comes crashing down, will he have anything left to help him stand as the end times approach?
