This is an advertizement for my book, "A Coming Storm", published by Alaska Dreams Publishing Company, www.alaskadp.com and can also be found through Amazon under my name, William Casselman. "An epic novel of over 250,000 words describing the second coming of Christ. A worldwide apocalyptic thriller that will keep you turning the pages!"
Outline: Set in 2017 A.D., a planet-killer comet is en route to destroy the earth and the proverbial doomsday clock ignites a world panic. World War III becomes a nightmarish reality. A massive Oriental army leaves most of the world in a smoldering ruin as their nuclear missiles, followed by biological and chemical weapons, exchange impact strikes with dwindling world powers. The earth responds with a multitude of great quakes, volcano eruptions and towering tsunamis. War and plagues spread across the globe, leaving two-thirds of the world population dead. The United States government ceases to exist as a power, with only small groups of survivors to live off the land in the continental US. All communications and electrical grids are destroyed. Starvation and sickness take its deadly toll. Cannibalism returns. The US is now left wide open for the Oriental Alliance Pact to move against North America, using the Alaskan-Russia Bering Sea Ice Bridge to bring their great armies and heavy armor across. An under-manned Alaska Defense Force division of Native Alaskans troops stand ready to oppose the Oriental hordes. While from the burning rubble of Phoenix, Arizona, a Pastor and his flock escape the flames to take their convoy to Alaska, in following the Pastor's visions, and from the City of Fairbanks, the officers of the Fairbanks Police Department deal with martial law, Alliance spies, hoarders, food and water shortages and the impending evacuation as the Oriental Alliance moves east to destroy Alaska's second largest city.
This is "A Coming Storm", of the three main characters groups gradually brought together to fight the final battle at Fort Greeley, Alaska. It is then when the heavenly trumpet is heard around the world.
This story can be purchased for Kindle readers and Book on Demand. Personally, I prefer having the actual book in my hands. I have also written the prequel to ACS and the sequel, for creation of a trilogy.
I also hope to have my story, "Apache Snow", on sale soon. This is my Vietnam story of 1969 Vietnam and the lives of three fictional characters in an actual Company of soldiers who were involved in the 11-day epic battle for what came to be known as Hamburger Hill. My story is different from other war stories of the same event in that I also involve the life of a fictional North Vietnamese Medic inside the mountain and my key character is a Pastor's son; a Christian who turned away from God and Bible College to seek revenge for the death of his brother- a Green Beret sergeant killed in Vietnam. It was my goal to show what transpired in the lives of the Christians who served over there, the changes made and the inner battles they fought. I know for I fought my own over there.
Okay enough advertisement- but remember Alaska Dream Publishing. They will help new authors get their work out and they also work with a writer in self-publishing. Check out their website.
When I wrote A Coming Storm some 15 years ago, it followed a series of dreams and strange happenings. Those dreams led me to the beginning of the book and the events that had to happen leading up to WW III. Oddly enough, and I have stated several times I am not a prophet, 6 of the events in my book have happened and I'm not sure on whether to be frightened or simply in awe. Was I actually told to write this book to provide a warning? This book had set in my drawer for 14 years, until I sent it off to Alaska Publishing on the advise of another dear Christian friend. Oh, there are other events to come and some I believed would have already happened apparently do not follow a time line I proposed or I got it wrong, and again it is all fiction. Yes, I have written a lot of books written by misguided Christians, who strongly believed they were writing for God. For me, I believed I was given some incite, some ideas and if the Lord can use them I am overjoyed. But my life has been walked long as a sinner, constantly repenting and for sure not a modern day Prophet. Still, I watch for the Two Witnesses, who may or not appear in my lifetime. But they are coming.
Saudi Arabia: Mr. Raif Badawi, a Saudi Arabian Muslim blogger and activist, was sentenced for a blog he did regarding Saudi Arabia's Regime as Insulting Islam. His sentence is 1,000 lashes, ten years in jail and a fine of $270,000. He co-founded a website, "Saudi Arabian Liberals". He made the statement, "My commitment is...to reject any repression in the name of religion. A goal that we reach in a peaceful and law-abiding way," ( This is a side to Islam we rarely see in the headlines or news stories in major papers. Oh his punishment was a big story, but not his desire for peace among all religions. Maybe we could start a United Religious Nations outside the UN. )
Iran: Iran's weapons are at the service of the Hezbollah, while the Hezbollah now try to acquired precision-guided rockets and missiles for future attacks on Israeli sites. The risk of inadvertent clash between Israel and Hezbollah is rising. Both Hezbollah of Lebanon to the North and Hamas of Gaza to the West now face Israel. But neither group say they have an interest in sparking off a war with the Israelis. Still, they continue to arm themselves and train in earnest for the foreseeable event. Both Hamas and the Hezbollah stand to suffer widespread, lasting, and crippling damages from any war with Israel.
US: According to Blaze News, when the question was asked among churchgoers in a "New Lifeway Research Poll of 994 people, of "I would skip a weekly worship service to watch my favorite football team," the poll showed the majority in the poll disagreed. 68% strongly disagree, 15% somewhat disagree, 10% agree, and 5% strongly agree.
Britain: Al-Qaeda in Syria is plotting attacks to inflict mass casualties in the west, possibly against transportation systems or "iconic targets", the head of Britain's MI5 Security Services warned. He also said a strike on Britain was highly likely.
US: Once again Fox News Todd Starnes is running a story on NBC omitting "God" from the "Pledge of Allegiance". This is in a movie that NBC has titled "Allegiance". In 2011 NBC did this twice and Todd Starnes was able to obtain and apology from NBC and the correction made. But this time, the NBC has failed to return his calls. Has NBC been taken over by atheists or what?
That's all for now, I have to head to town. There's a report my brain might be there and the wife is driving me in. For some reason I've been handcuffed to a gurney...to many zombie movies. Just the thought of eating brains...maybe chocolate coated....
