Kim Mutch Emerson Brings Digitus 233 to the Barn Den to Wow us All, and, While Comforting the Chickens ...
GMB: We welcome Kim Mutch Emerson here today. Here in the 'Anything But a Tired Barn' we got together and did something a little different ... We all here in the Barn changed things around a little. We're looking more like a Wolves' Den than a barn and I must say ... Kim we have some nervous chickens around here today...
KME: Well Mitch its good to be here to enjoy the effort to make your Barn into a Den... But you know how I am with the chickens ... They make me a little nervous too.
GMB: Okay forget the chickens for now ... What's with your passion for wolves anyway?
KME: I lived at the top of a mountain with a pack of wolves ... But should we be doing this to the chickens Mitch ... I mean really? Oh, and how about the cow hiding in the corner there ... I'm thinking that is a real look of cowcern...
GMB: Ha ha ha ... Well maybe we ought to change the subject ... perhaps they will all ease up a little if we share a little about your book latest novel Digitus 233.
KME: Good idea Mitch, the less feathers stirred up the better...
GMB: I read you latest novel, Digitus 233 and provided it the following review, "Digitus 233 drops the reader into a remote, hostile environment and to experience the de facto leader on mission ... Then there is the stowaway otherwise smuggling himself into harm's way ... perhaps. Then there is a `room that wasn't a room'. I love the contrast, juxtaposition, the paradox of expansive free form themes and confined spaces ... the notion of intense indoctrination facing off with the notion of identifying and securing reliable relationships, perhaps leadership recruited and refined. There is this creative tension throughout this story and the author has the reader searching for balance, whether from the vertical, or, where one would hope to find resolution on the horizon of an as yet to be undefined... This YA read should be what YA readers read." I'm liking what I see in all you other reviews for Digitus 233.
KME: Thank You Mitch. I appreciate your reading my book about a group of teens caught in a web of deceit. I always wanted to write a book about breaking free of the world’s controlling power or, in the alternative, being doomed to die trying.
GMB: And I I like this review too... "Looking for fantastic characters and a breath-holding, heart-pounding, hair-raising edge of your seat good time? Then look no further, Digitus 233 has it all ~ Maria" Tell me Kim ...What brings you the deepest sense of happiness?
KME: Knowing that I have made a difference in someone’s life. I have an ability to feel deep joy when I watch others succeed.
GMB: And you help a lot of authors as the You are the owner of Master Koda Select Publishing, LLC. Is it the first business you have ever owned?
KME: *Laughter* Nooo. I was just a kid of six or seven when I first ventured into the land of entrepreneurial adventures. I was always hunting around for something to sell. One summer it was candy out of the back of a little red wagon (my venture into door to door sales), one summer it was a carnival in my back yard, one summer I gathered all the neighborhood kids and made them memorize lines and dress in ridiculous costumes and we charged all the adults to suffer through our off-off-off-Broadway plays. The one on-going business I had was selling my stories on the playground at school, so I guess I was an indie publisher way back before it was popular.
GMB: You know Kim we've been friends for years now and I've come to realize that with every ounce of your good intention, there is not a whole lot wasted ... It got me thinking about a quote I want to share...
GMB: You know I just wanted to share as much because you truly are a person in the publishing industry that makes it possible for a lot of writers to never waste their effort ... their spirit... their gifts...
KME: Thank You Mitch.
GMB: Kim, what is your favorite genre to read on a rainy day?
KME: No matter the weather or the genre, three important aspects must be present. First, it can be a romance, thriller, fantasy or sci-fi, but the author has to make me believe it’s possible. Second, the plot must be intriguing and tightly written. And third, the characters have to be three-dimensional. No card-board cut-outs for this girl.
GMB: What is the meaning of life?
KME: To leave the earth a better place for having been here.
GMB: You all in the Barn Den listening in Kim tells me she loves writing thought provoking and action filled stories that bring her readers back for more. Although her writings deal with the evils of the world, she dishes out healthy doses of laughter and fun along the way. Speaking of fun ... Kim, how do you spend your weekends?
KME: I spend my free time wrangling wild horses, rafting down the Amazon, hang gliding on a toothpick, and when I'm awake you will find me working on my next adventure or assisting other authors in creating their dreams.
GMB: How about sharing some Media Links so all can get a hold of you to see how the chickens are doing?
KME: Sure Mitch ... Anything for the Digitus chicken fans out there ... Author blog: http://digitus233.com/category/blog/
