Kingdom of Rust

In a world where emotion is currency and life is bound by an impenetrable wall, how far would you go to save not only the world, but yourself?


Ravaged by time and conflict, humanity surrounded themselves with an impenetrable Wall. The City exists on the edge of tomorrow where the choices of the past will come back to haunt them. All but enslaved, the people stir as the death toll rises. The device that measures and monetizes emotion is killing them. The Government denounces claims, lighting fire to a rebellion that crosses socioeconomic lines. Even those cast out of the City will join in to fight against an oppressive regime. As societal norms degrade, unrest begins to stir in the oppressed masses. With the City in turmoil, the Government searches for the secret of a dead woman’s legacy.

One young man is destined to help a girl bioengineered to save the world. With her power coveted by both sides, it’s a race against time to keep her safe and dig up the secrets of the past. They must find the answers before the ancient entity awakens. In a place where perfection is personified by emotional stability, who will persevere? Will Humanity rise or fall, as they have countless times before? Nothing is as it seems where secrets are truths, and truths are lies.

Elevator Pitch:

Built on monetized emotion and hidden behind a Wall, the City hovers on the brink of destruction.   Rebels and Government collide when unrest swells.  One girl escapes the ashes of betrayal to embrace her destiny.  The City’s fate hangs in the balance of her choices, while an ancient entity stirs.

I don't have much this week!  Life's been pretty quiet other than getting ready for Christmas, buying Christmas gifts, ordering chainmaille (which I still need to do) for Christmas gifts and playing with kitties. What else can I say is going on?  Not much other than...

What Does It Mean To Be Done?

Is it true?  Could I be done?  I am not sure.  I finished the latest book rewrite/edits based on beta feedback, and I feel like the story is more solid.  It feels weird to be 'done' and not stressing about finding time to write.  I've got other project ideas, but...

The Distractions of Travel

I always have grand ideas to write or to plot, plan, and finish things when I travel.  I'll have all this time, I tell myself, surely I can get it all done.  Invariably, I overestimate the amount of viable available time I do have.  I usually stay up too late, sleep...

The Kitchen Sink Update

What a whirlwind summer!  Not only did my husband and I celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary, but we also bought a new house and moved.  I've had very little time for anything OTHER than being sick (all of July) and moving (all of August), and now we are in a...

A Snail’s Pace

What a crazy month!  And it's almost over, somehow.  My birthday is zooming closer and closer, and that means the end of the month looms.  And then "my month" is over.  Which always saddens me, because I LOOOOVE my month. In the midst of work busyness, we might be...

All Roads Lead Nowhere

My roads are always under construction.  But not the good kind.  Not the kind that gets better each time you drive through them, no.  I feel like I'm the 30-year construction project that only ever seems to get worse, causing traffic backups and delays.  The kind...
