The Five Barred Gate

Release date: September 4, 2019

Have you ever wondered what would happen if the Non-Offensive Movement in the United States became federal law? What would happen to the freedoms guaranteed to us through the Constitution? This is the story of Jacob Andrews. He is faced with the decision to follow his heart and disregard what the law says about how he should live; even if it means his life.

The Five Barred Gate is looking at a September 2019 release. Keep up to date at my Author Page on WordCrafts Press website.

In His Exciting Service,

Jeff S. Bray


7/23/19: Got the proof today from the publisher for the cover you see above. It is different than the original that Carolyn had painted for me. The publisher wanted a broader audience to market to and felt that our design would limit us to a YA audience. I am grateful for the effort my amazingly talented wife put into her design, it will now be one of the easter eggs found when someone, somewhere asks, “what was the original cover design for The Five Barred Gate?”

Release date is set for September 4, 2019

4/26/19: It is official. I am under contract with WordCrafts Press for The Five Barred Gate. Everything was finalized today. Now the waiting game begins. God is Awesome!!

4/22/19: Spoke to the publisher on the phone. We have agreed to terms of the contract. I should sign later this week. We are seeking a September release date. I will keep you posted. Praise God!!
