Today I have a special guest on my blog. She’s not only the owner of Master Koda Select Publishing but also an amazing author, good friend and someone who truly knows what helping each other means….drumming…meet K.D. Emerson!
K.D. Emerson was born (or is that hatched) several years ago. We won’t go into how long it has been because she has this fantasy that she is still a teenager off to conquer the world. Her first novel was written in pencil, stapled together and placed in the school library. At age 6, she didn’t have a clue an author needed a publisher. She has a passion for the written word and assisting other writers in becoming the best they can be. She also loves to promote others and cheer them on to victory. Follow her on twitter @MstrKoda or you can find her at masterkoda.com and on Facebook at facebook.com/kimmutch.emerson
What is the title of your book?
Oooh lala! I love this question because the title of my book has a double meaning. Title: Digitus 233
Where did the idea for the book come from?
The dark corners of my mind. I love allowing my imagination to take what is and expand it to what may be…
What genre does your book fall under?
Dystopia Science Fiction set in the near future. It can also fall under action/adventure/fringe science/mature young adult/thriller. There, I think that about covers it.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
My book will be published with Master Koda Select Publishing (MKSP) due out Dec 21, 2012 – just in time for the end of the world.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
The very rough edges of the rough draft simmered for several years on the back burner of my mind. The actual writing took place over several months.
Give a one sentence synopsis of your novel:
When Zander was ushered onto the luxurious Lear Jet the end of the world was the last thing on his mind.
What other works would you compare your story to?
It’s kind of a combo meal between The Hunger Games, Clive Cussler novels, the classic Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell and the movie The Manchurian Candidate set to the tune of Hotel California.
Who or What inspired you to write this book?
The events in Nazi Germany during World War II, the reality that freedom (and life) can so easily slip through our fingers, the intrigue of fringe science and how it can be used for good or evil (depending on who is in control).
What else might pique the reader’s interest?
After much argument from the main characters of the book it was finally decided to give a fleeting glance inside the upcoming novel Digitus 233 from author K.D. Emerson.
“When Zeph, the adventurous son of a millionaire hid in the cargo hold of the Learjet carrying his brother Zander to camp he had no idea there was anything dark or ominous going on.”
