Religious war takes toll on USA in Pensacola author’s thought-provoking new novel

PENSACOLA, Fla. — Author I.G. Hughes Jr. announces the nationwide release of his engrossing new religious novel, “Rejected: A Nation in Decline.”

“Rejected” takes its readers to the United States of the future, where a split television screen revealed the Oval office in Washington and the war room at the Pentagon.

Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at, or by visiting or
