A city turned lawless, a sky haunted by drifting, glowing creatures, an alien object blotting out the sun, and only a sixteen-year-old girl to make sense of it all.

Lillia Wilkins is having a pretty normal day, filled with thoughts of school work, boys, and the occasional creepy stalker. Then suddenly the lights go out and she looks up to find a massive object as wide as the city hovering in the sky.

Chaos instantly erupts. People flee the city in droves. Even Lillia’s own foster mother abandons her, leaving her all alone to care for the younger children. Luckily she happens upon Sherman, an alcoholic but crafty homeless man who knows how to navigate the chaotic streets of Louisville.

When an intruder burns down the house, Lillia and Sherman must find a safe place to take the children. They need food and clothing. They need a good night’s sleep. They need to escape the city, now quarantined by the military.

Most of all, they need to answer the question: “What is the object?”

And if that’s not enough, now they have to deal with the new mayor in town, attorney Barry Schafer, who wants to rob the city blind, starting by hiring a Westside gang to kill off all the police.

But Lillia has a secret. She found something–or did it find her? Either way, it might be the key to unraveling the mystery of the object . . . and maybe saving the world.

The Object: Book One is a fast-paced, action-packed exploration of human nature. Ripe with a delicate balance of suspense, sci-fi, mystery, comedy, and romance, it will have readers turning their faces up to the sky. What is the object? Maybe you’ll be the first to discover the truth.

The Object began as a free serial novel at www.whatistheobject.com, where the free serialization of Book Two will begin May 1st, 2013.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Author really takes time to develop the characters and you find yourself genuinely concerned about them. A good, suspenseful read. I wouldn’t be a bit surprised to hear that Winston Emerson has become a household name. Highly recommend!

Talk about gripping. The guy really knows how to get you to the next page…then the next…until the very, very interesting ending. Bravo chap, all around. Looking forward to Book Two.

*******

This book is beautifully written. For once the story has a ending that will make you want to read the next installment.

*******

All I can say is that I really liked this book. I can’t wait for the next one to come out. This turned out to be better than l expected, I would recommend this book to anyone who likes sci-fi.

*******

This story really blew me away. I don’t typically read books like this but I am so glad I checked this one. Very fast paced, tells you enough to be able to visualize everything and care about the characters.

About The Author


My name is Winston Emerson. I have a wife and a dog. We live in Louisville, Kentucky. If you need more information than that, you’re free to purchase a background check, but my books are probably more revealing. I can tell you I’m a happy person with well-managed but dark turns of thought. I’m not a serial killer, nor do I aspire to be. For anyone whose read A Circle in the Woods, know that I share Brittany’s world view, not Phil’s.

So, what do you like to read? I’m not a genre writer. I’m a variety act. I write what I want to write. Sometimes it confuses people, sometimes it thrills them, and sometimes it scares them. (Hence the serial killer disclaimer in the first paragraph.)

If you want to get lost in the woods at night and see things you’ll wish you hadn’t, read A Circle in the Woods. If you watch The Walking Dead every week, read Stephen King books, or are constantly on the lookout for the next big series, read The Object: Book One.

When I say I’m a variety act, I mean I have multiple author identities. You may have already read a book of mine, published under a pseudonym, one of which is Lily White, though I’ll forewarn you, Lily White’s The Drought is unedited. Read at your own risk.

I have a website where I serialize The Object for free. You can contact me there and I’ll respond as long as you’re not a spammer.
