Spotlight on Melanie Karsak

Summer of Zombie 2014 SPOTLIGHT ON: Melanie Karsak

I have the distinct pleasure of hosting the amazing Melanie Karsak, one of my new favorite authors.  She’s the genius behind The Harvesting and a couple of other fantastic books.

The Harvesting

Quick description of it (no spoilers)

“The world, it seemed, had gone silent. It was something we knew but did not talk about. We were alone.”

While Layla Petrovich returns home to rural Hamletville after a desperate call from her psychic grandmother, she never could have anticipated the horror of what Grandma Petrovich has foreseen. The residents of Hamletville will need Layla’s cool head, fast blade and itchy trigger finger to survive the undead apocalypse that’s upon them. But even that may not be enough. With mankind silenced, it soon becomes apparent that we were never alone. As the beings living on the fringe seek power, Layla must find a way to protect the ones she loves or all humanity may be lost.

It’s all fun and games until someone ends up undead!


Something unique about it.

Sometimes people are surprised to discover that my novel is not a straight-up zombie apocalypse story. I mix in other supernatural creatures and elements. The novel questions what the death of mankind might mean if other creatures of lore existed. What if the z-poc actually became a war for contemporary middle earth?

The Harvesting is also an award winner! The novel just received a BRAG Medallion for excellence in writing.
