About the author:
J.M. DeBord's debut novel tells the story of the return of Antiochus IV Epiphanes to fulfill prophecies of a second coming and the Antichrist. Originally conceived in 1999, it evolved into a sweeping novel published at a time when the world is mired in a situation described in the story: on the brink between enlightenment and extinction.
J.M. DeBord worked as a journalist and Pilates instructor while writing Something Coming, and has published several hundred newspaper articles, as well as short fiction and opinion pieces at his website. To learn more, follow the link to the left to the author's Amazon home page.

Meet King Antiochus, coming very soon to an Apocalypse near you. When he died 21 centuries ago he never passed on; instead his spirit waited for resurrection. He's been preparing for his return, watching humanity until its fruit ripened, ready to be harvested for the New Age.
To Christians Antiochus defines Antichrist. He is the "abomination in the holy place" who Jesus warned about. The "little horn" of the prophet Daniel who needs no God other than himself. He is also brilliant, supremely powerful, and capable of saving humanity from self-destruction. It's a recipe for Armageddon.
Along the way meet Darianna, the beguiling queen of Antiochus reincarnated as the wife of an archeologist, who discovers his secret burial place beneath Mt. Nemrut, Turkey - a fantastic mountaintop sanctuary and historic site. Also meet Akbar, a local villager whose life is upended after learning that he lived before, long ago, but has a hard road ahead to finding out who he was in that past life.
Then meet Demetrius and his two Brothers when they emerge from obscurity to lead a movement of peace and enlightenment based from Mt. Nemrut in Turkey, the sacred mountain. Three spiritual masters, followers of Antiochus, creating reality with their minds and teaching others The Way.
Readers will meet more fascinating characters as they follow Antiochus from his first miraculous announcement to his Second Coming: an old-time preacher who sees the Antichrist at work; an atheist scientist confronted by proof of spiritual existence; a young brother worried about the people he loves embroiled in world-changing events; two Jewish sisters, descended from Judas Maccabeus, who take up their family cause to fight an ancient enemy they can't even prove exists. And more.
Call it New Age, occult, or end times fiction, supernatural thriller or Christian fantasy - fans of many different genres will find something (and someone) to love in Something Coming by J.M. DeBord!
