Book Description

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, where the free serialization of Book Two will begin May 1st, 2013.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enthralling November 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Set firmly in a Louisville that is so rich with gritty texture and detail that it almost threatens as an antagonist itself, author Winston Emerson assembles a colorful cast of eclectic characters, each one struggling in their own way against the grind of day to day life. But, things can get worse. Oh how things are most definitely going to get a lot worse...when a great, mysterious sphere--The Object--appears without warning in the afternoon sky.

This book is a finger blister-inducing page turner. Emerson has a natural story-teller's voice that delivers one heck of a tale with no holds barred punches. If you're a fan of Stephen King, then The Object needs to be in your hands today!

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to get lost in this story! November 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I am enjoying this story so much, it's so easy to escape into this world, even though it is fraught with pitfalls and scary monsters. I wait for each installment with bated breath and it's so much fun. Another of his novels, "A Circle in the Woods" is unique and just as absorbing. He's definitely a writer to watch!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Overall Good Read November 5, 2012

Highly recommend! 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Apocalyptic good read. May 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Loved it. Loved the characters. Loved the plot. Loved the pace. Thanks W. Emerson....geez Amazon wants me to write more...Ok.

You will care about the characters, especially the homeless guy and the foster kids. The homeless guys starts out weak but you will come to love him. It's a fast read and leaves you wanting to find out more. Always a good sign. My only complaint is that I'd like to see that foster mother get hers!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic April 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
What an intricate tale woven here for us. Are they aliens? Are they peaceful? Will we all die? In a Stephen King-esqe world, the author intertwines the story of several people, pulling them together at the end. But, as with any good serial, the end is leaving us screaming NO!!! Where's the rest?! I'm definitely hooked and a new fan of The Object!

Now, why, if i loved it so much, is it only 4 stars? Some points left me slightly confused, or didn't make sense. But there are literally one/two. This is absolutely a great story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh, I can hardly wait for May 1st to come! April 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is such a well written novel. I finished it in very short order and found out, to my chagrin, that I only got to read the first installment and that installment isn't out until May 1, 2013! Winston Emerson writes captivating novelettes. Too bad that the readers are 'teased' with installments though. It's like watching a marvelous movie that doesn't end then you have to wait for part 2 for further explanations. I don't care for that type of presentation. Just give it all to us at one time, okay? Am so looking forward to finding out what the dickens it this Object and why the affect it's having on peoples behavior. So far so good, so very good!

Admittedly I bailed after jumping around the first 25% looking for something, anything that wasn't cruel or nauseating. Nope - couldn't find it. The writing is okay I guess. Read more
