Apparent Power, February 2019


Instead of trying to find your perfect match in a dating app, we bring you the "Author-Reader Match" where we introduce you to authors as a reader you may fall in love with. It's our great pleasure to present Dacia M Arnold! 


Dystopian Mom Fiction. In Apparent Power, Sparks fly in a mother’s journey to pick up the pieces after devastation. Because saving the world without a kid on your leg is just child’s play. Does she save her family? Or humanity?

Thirty-something contemporary science fiction author seeks closet readers of YA dystopian who enjoy the high-action and high-stakes of titles like Divergent and Hunger Games, but desperately want a heroine who understands the struggles of motherhood.

What I’m looking for in my ideal reader match:

  • Their idea of a perfect date includes an overnight babysitter (they exist), and silence found in a nice hotel with a Jacuzzi tub, paperback or e-reader, candles, and wine.
  • Did I mention silence?
  • Loves to read strong, relatable female characters with morals and reverence for marriage
  • Likes action-packed adventures of a mother doing everything she can to keep her family safe
  • Has parental guilt every single time they leave their children for any reason, but especially a perfect date or work.
  • Could really use a full body massage
  • Enjoys shining examples of functional adult relationships because they help them voraciously hate the bad guy
  • Spends spare time thinking about or prepping for any and every kind of disaster
What to expect if we’re compatible:
  • Frequent public appearances to unite in exhausted solidarity
  • Two more books in the DiaZem series following Apparent Power
  • More books varying in genre
  • Frequent giveaways via my newsletter and Facebook

APPARENT POWER by Dacia M Arnold

DiaZem Book One
Apparent Power
A dormant gene awakens in a quarter of the world's population and the effects are apocalyptic. With an even rarer gene, the life of Valerie Russell turns into a shocking race against time.

When the human body begins to require more electricity than needed to keep a heart beating, cars lose power, phones no longer function, and planes fall from the sky.

Stranded in southern Colorado, a hundred miles from home--and from her two-year-old son-- Valerie must find it within herself to trek the distance with the help of a questionable assembly of ex-military friends of the family.

very interesting

This sounds very interesting. I like wondering how I would handle a situation like this.
(Mary Songer 4:59pm May 11)

I liked the post. It is sure an intriguing premise.
(Debra Guyette 6:18am May 12)

I am a fan of dystopian fiction. I just can't get enough of
it. Which, considering my passion is researching and writing
about family history, I admit that this is an odd match...a
person who lives in the past who enjoys contemplating future
apocalyptic scenarios.

After reading the synopsis for the book, Apparent Power, I
was intrigued. Most dystopian fiction is told from the
teenager/young adult point-of-view. As such, these tales are
often focus on the protagonist's experiences with little to
no consideration of other's viewpoints. But what if the main
character is a mother? Suddenly, the story shifts to a more
inclusive viewpoint. Not only is the main character concerned
about herself, she also has children to consider.

Wow. I am intrigue. A different type and if I do not win a copy I will definitely buy one. I give honest reviews on goodread, amazon and freshfiction. I like a good strong woman hero and she already sounds interesting from what I have read.
(Sherrie Wood 7:10pm May 12)

I love stories with smart, strong women and this sounds
like fun
(Nancy Krueger 1:05am May 14)

Sounds great. Looking forward to reading this.
(Pam Howell 7:04am May 14)

This book sounds amazing. Can't wait to read.
