The  Twelve

Author’s Website:

Listen in to this entertaining and inspiring interview with William Gladstone, author of THE TWELVE. The extraordinary way the book came about lends additional “wow” to the novel—such as why this previous nonfiction manuscript turned into a fiction novel. Or is it fiction? And if so, how much of it remains the Truth?

The book is called THE TWELVE---12.21.12 A New Beginning. It is an extraordinary page-turning novel about an unsuspecting hero and his date with destiny surrounding the Mayan prophecy of 12.21.2012. The novel takes the reader on a journey of spectacular adventures-- all weaving together a web of synchronicities, coincidences and life-altering serendipity. Max is the unsuspecting hero and readers will find pieces of themselves in this very ordinary—yet extraordinary character.

Preface, From the Book:

The year 2012 has been heralded as the end of the Mayan calendar. There are ancient legends from the Hopi, the Tibetan shamans, even from those who believe they channel the wisdom of the ancient worlds or myths of Lemuria and Atlantis, all pointing to 2012 as the beginning or the end of life as humanity has lived it over the past several thousand years.

Christianity has long awaited the second coming that will be heralded by end-times of fire, as well as the promise of “heaven on earth.” The Jews wait for the coming of the Messiah, and many aboriginal spiritual traditions have anticipated the transformation of the planet in some magical way.
