Now Available

The second prequel concentrates on six vital individuals and the decisions they made that caused five of the them to be left on Earth following the Rapture—a sudden, simultaneous, supernatural disappearance of millions of followers of God.

No Left Behind book is complete without the ultimate villain—antichrist Nicolae Carpathia. The Regime captures Carpathia at age 25 when he has already conquered the Romanian and European business worlds and has set his site on politics, where nothing will stop him from obtaining his goal of complete international power.

Read the untold stories of Rayford, Irene, Buck, Smitty, and Leon Fortunato. These six personalities have no idea they are on a collision course with destiny at the most dire moment in history. Read more.

Eds: How was the idea for Soon born?

Jerry: There were two letters to the editor in Time magazine that made me start thinking what our society and world might look like if people got their wishes.

Eds: Those letters were received by Time magazine soon after the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Towers. Here are excerpts:
… ban all these religions, cults, and man-made concepts of how to worship God. Bar the different religious leaders from spreading their views as the only absolute. … Forbid religions, and there will be fewer fights."
—Jorma Kajaste, Espoo, Finland

If there were no religions, and only empathy, altruism, and humanism to lead the way, the world would truly be an enlightened place.
—Preeti Kumar, Harlington, England
Eds: Your fans know that you play word and number games within your book. Are there any hints you can give about Soon? Does the name of your central character hold special meaning?

Jerry: Yes, there are anagrams throughout. The main character's last name is significant. So is the name of arch villain Ranold B. Decenti. And there are more.

Eds: What about this novel do you think will especially appeal to the LB readers?

Jerry: It's set in the future and there are a lot of parallels to Scripture.
