Book 7. Dormant. 

Ah, Dormant… Done that’s it, that should be all I need to say. One of my absolute favourite books. Dormant is my editor Janet’s favourite book.  This was an idea I have been toying with for a long time. I had this idea of touching the dead and being transported to someplace. The dark places this book takes you to are incredible and super unique. It is dark yet at all times you feel as if you are a drone overlooking the story and not just reading it.  

Well, that someplace is Dormant.  

This was one story that poured out of my head. I struggled to keep up with the ideas and I worked very long hours on making this happen. It seemed that even I as the writer was being led along and was completely unsure where I would end up.  

Write itself. 

I wish the story would have written itself but in a way, I was strung along by my brain. No, I was not possessed but I may as well have been. I had so much fun writing this that I honestly wasn’t sure where I would end up.  

So as I said before, I know the beginning, middle and end of the story. The story arc is in my head, yet the in-between of it all in this book grew and grew very organically. It developed slowly and in a way that as the reader your mind is so messed up with who is where and what is happening that it only makes complete sense in the end.  

Proud of this. 

In many ways, I felt that this book helped me grow as a writer. I was the God of my little world and truly taking writing to another level. I was braver than before and felt very much at home in my Dormant novel.  

Nothing can happen/improve without practice. This book felt as if I was taking myself to another place and another level of scary. While not a horror novel, it is one of fear and suspense with added terrifying bits. It also touches on life lessons and humans/humanity. I find that all of my stories have been some form of lesson. Agree or not there is something to be learned from each of my novels.  

The back of the book.

Alia endures days and nights of constant rain and terror as the pieces of the puzzle slowly fall into place. She must escape before she loses her mind.

Zsolt Zsemba has worn many different hats. He has been an entrepreneur, and businessman for over 30 years. Living abroad has given him many amazing experiences in life and also sparked his imagination for writing. After moving to Canada from Hungary at the age of 10 and working in a family business for a large part of his life. The switch from manufacturing to writing came surprisingly easily for him. His passion for writing began at age 12, mostly writing poetry and short stories. In 1999, the chance came to write scripts. Zsolt took some time off from his family business to write in Jakarta Indonesia for MD Entertainment. Having written dozens of soap operas and made for TV movies, in 2003 Zsolt returned to the family business once more. In 2018, he had the chance to head back to Asia once again. He took on the challenge to be the COO for MD Pictures and get back into the entertainment business. The entertainment business opened up the desire to write once more and the words began to flow onto the pages again. He decided to rewrite a book he began years ago. Organ House was reborn and is a fiction suspense novel while Scars is a young adult drama focused on life’s challenges. After the first two books, his desire to write not only became more challenging but enjoyable as well. After having several books completed he was convinced to publish them for your enjoyment. Zsolt does not tend to stay in one specific genre but tends to lean towards strong female leads and horror. Though he also has a few human interest books, he tends to write about whatever brews in his brain for a while.
