WOW Wednesday – Meet Kim Emerson – My Publisher

  This sort of tale-spinning takes TALENT! All I’ve gotta say is this: KD – you’d better get the sequel written pretty darn quickly…!! ~ Liberty

A group of teens are caught in a web of deceit.  Will they break free of the world’s controlling power or are they doomed to die trying?



K.D. Emerson has this to say to her readers.

Thanks to all the readers of my work and for your precious input. I don’t think you realize how much it means to me. Each one of you has given me a gift with your kind words. May God bless you in every step you take and may your life be filled with that glorious peace that passes all understanding.

I first met K.D. Emerson on a blog tour summer 2012. I have to be honest, she amazed me. The one thing that stood out in my mind about her was ability to do so many things. She works full time, runs a publishing company, writes and spends time with her family and friends. She does it all.
Since that time I have discovered that there is more than meets the eye when it comes to K.D.  Emerson. Today, just for fun I would like to expose some of the weird and wacky things I discovered about her. I am posting this pop quiz to see if any of you can guess the three things on this list that K.D. Emerson has NOT done in her life.  I’m sure you will agree the things left on the list equal a pretty interesting life.
Here is a list of possible facts about K.D. Emerson. What three things are false? 
  1. Ridden a wild horse
  2. Ridden an unicycle
  3. Worked at a bank
  4. Worked at a carnival
  5. Got expelled from school  a week before high school graduation
  6. Never got expelled from school
  7. Sold her first story at age eight
  8. Was in a moving traffic accident with a truck that had no driver
  9. Won a dance contest in high school
  10. Lived at the top of a mountain with a pack of wolves
  11. Her first published work was three lines long
  12. Received a 5 star review from her ex-husband after they were divorced
  13. Loves cotton candy
  14. Acted in and directed live theatre
  15. Tore the finger board off a grand piano while performing on stage

Dante Marando understands that the human body is fragile. With recent medical advances, he’s certain scientists will soon be able to keep healthy people alive for longer stretches of time, and he is determined to be a part of history in the making.

I Dream Of Zombies

I just love zombies! Are you a zombie follower? Check out Vickie’s zombies! Special release price of $.99!

It starts with a dream and the nightmare takes over.

  A zombie novel set in London over six weeks in 2013.

  It all begins on a summer’s day with the media reporting with some hilarity that people are dreaming of the dead coming to life, but those who have dreamt them are convinced they are a warning of things to come. Marla takes it all with a pinch of salt until she experiences the nightmares herself. Cue paranoia and disbelief until reality shows its new face. 
  All over London there are incidences of people becoming sick and aggressive. As the attacks mount, the media is forced to take the matter seriously, but what is causing it? Is it a virus, and is it natural or man-made, and is the government responsible? 
  Marla, her sister, Ellen, and friend Tommy find themselves fighting for their survival as their sense of reality is smashed. Will the army and police maintain control or will the country find itself in lockdown, isolated from the outside world? 

Excerpt

  “A sickening sense of dread ravages him as fear drifts over the surface of his skin like fingers, icy cold and unrelenting. He turns again and sprints towards the exit, his pace becoming increasingly slower as if something is pushing him back. Yet still he finds himself in the exact same position, his feet rooted to the spot, his arms sweeping, useless. His hair blows in the breath that the creature now turns on him, sickening in its putrid scent of death and putrefaction. 
  “There is not a word he can think of to describe this thing in front of him. Fear creeps, regardless. Twisting, crawling, the maggots swarm across its bloodied face as it opens its mouth wider. Something rips. The yawn seems to swallow him whole into this darkness of despair as a jagged, ripping pain overwhelms him; the sharp teeth chafing, gnawing at his neck, seeking to pierce the jugular vein within. From far off in the distance comes the ripple of laughter.”
