by Doug McGovern, Nancy McGovern

“My life was normal—excruciatingly so, in fact.  But now I long for that normalcy.  I dream of it.  Sadly, despite how hard I fight for those I love, despite my effort to endure the everlasting torture my life has become, nothing will change.  In the end I must simply be content with what I have.  That may sound ironic, considering I have nothing.  But I must strive to find peace in that nothingness.”

In the second installment of The Rising Dawn Trilogy, Karsen Henderson and her family delve into the beginning stages of what will soon become an apocalyptic catastrophe.  They’re scared.  They’re angry.  And they’re about to face the hardest challenge of their lives.

Before, the Hendersons were an ordinary, working-class family.  Karsen was a typical sixteen-year-old girl with best friends and a budding romance.  She liked listening to music and watching movies.  Shopping.  Hanging out. 

But the apocalypse cares nothing about those things.  It simply...destroys.

Now, the Henderson family - along with the rest of the world - is forced to find a way to survive an invasion of things faster, smarter and more ruthless than the typical human.  Or they can die.  There are no other options.

Invading Impossibilities is Book 2 in Doug McGovern's The Rising Dawn Trilogy.  Be sure to sign up for Doug's mailing list to receive a FREE Prequel to the Trilogy that cannot be found anywhere else (link inside)!

Mankind is losing their biggest war ever. The one war they can't afford to lose.

Decorated war hero Colonel Chaz Sheperd wasn't used to being beat, and this time it wasn't just the enemy making his life miserable. With even his family turning on him, he'd have to make some hard choices. Knowing where his loyalties lay wasn't as easy as it used to be.

In a crumbling world trusted alliances were essential but fleeting. Chaz would find answers where he least expected. Answers not only for him, but the entire planet.

Things haven't gotten much better for Colonel Chaz Sheperd, but at least now he has some friends to blame his problems on. Chaz has a plan for saving the world, but he needs the help of his companions to carry it off. Can a twelve year old girl, a rookie soldier and a battle weary war hero save the planet?

Things are changing faster than anyone realizes, and Chaz's new found companions are not all they appear to be. The question is, who is Chaz willing to sacrifice to give human kind a chance for survival?

This time, even the enemy isn't who he thought it was.

Colonel Chaz Sheperd is tired of fighting, but the war rages on. Civilization teeters on the brink of collapse, and the zombie freaks are growing in strength. Chaz has done everything asked of him, but he can no longer protect the people he cares about.

The leaders of a secret bunker hold the final solution for beating back the freaks, but not before Chaz makes one more sacrifice. The young girl Christa saved his life once, and is now key to the final solution. Chaz must decide where his loyalties lie and who to trust if he's going to save civilization.

Against a backdrop of shifting political powers and mutating freaks three individuals will make choices that determine the fate of an entire planet.

Author Interview

What is it that makes Welcome to Zombietowne unique in the zombie genre?
Well, it's not really a genre book, per se. It's got zombies in it, and it draws a lot on the rules and the mythology that surround typical zombie-uprising scenarios. But in my book, the uprising happened two decades ago. The world these characters live in is just informed by that. Because there's zombies.

So it's a zombie book.
Yes and no. Like I said, it's got a big zombie element to it, kind of the way Robocop has a big "cyborg" element to it, but it's really about so much more, and dips into so many other categories. There's a bit of fantasy, a bit of drama, some suspense, and it's also kind of a caper. There's something for everyone.

Sounds like your book covers a lot of ground.
Oh, I was still talking about Robocop. But yeah, now that you mention it, that stuff applies to my book, too.

Is it an ongoing series, or just a collection of stories?
Well they made Robocop 2 and 3, but I only like the first two. If you're talking about the TV series, I think it was pretty episodic.

I was talking about your books again. That's kind of the whole point of this.
Oh. Right. Definitely an ongoing series. This is a highly-serialized dark comedy. Each book definitely has its own plot and its own arc, but you wouldn't watch Empire Strikes Back by itself and be satisfied. I mean, maybe a psychopath would, but. You know, I'm going to go on record as saying that if you're a psychopath, feel free to read the books in any order you like, or read only one or two. Everyone else, you should start with Book 1 and go from there.

Is there anything else you'd like people to know?
Yes. I want everyone to know that the scientific name for the Western Lowland Gorilla is gorilla gorilla gorilla. I just think that's worth knowing.
