What is D'mok Revival

Dímok Revial is a space opera targeting readers 10+. The story follows the plight of a soldier, Rhysus Mencari, who lost his family at the outset of an Alien invasion. He survived the attack through manifesting super human abilities. Over the course of the first three novels, and two novelettes, he masters his abilities, finds others like him, and hunts down the Nukari.

But what sets D'mok Revival apart from its peers isn't the traditional "big bad aliens invading, who fall victim to the underdog protagonist," it's the rich interpersonal dynamics between the core characters, and the very relatable struggles they face. It was Zummo's intention to take some of the very struggles in his life, and those closest to him, and present them through a fantastic and futuristic lens. His hope: readers would feel for the characters with innate understanding, and be drawn into his literary universe. Reviewers have concurred, that's exactly what happens. Another recognized feature of D'mok Revival is the diverse cast, featuring many powerful and capable female characters. In a genre ripe with male egos and macho-ism, D'mok Revival's equality has drawn a significant female following.

Zummo's literary universe draws inspiration from classic series such as Star Wars, FireFly, and Battlestar Galactica (2000 edition) while adding super human abilities inspired by Japanese Anime (Dragonball Z) and American series such as X-Men.

Dímok Revial has been a labor of love, which started with a short story back in 1998. Its first evolution came in late 1999 as the background for a role playing game. Various worlds were mapped out and specific game scenarios written so a group of gamers could role play the environments. A battle system was even constructed, along with a tree of character abilities and more.

By mid-2001, with hundreds of pages in backstory, characters information, key locations, and gameplay dynamics, a co-worker, Lynn Murdoch, suggested Michael write a novel.

It took a few years to pull together the original manuscript. When it was completed the story was 286,000 words strong. A professional editor helped condense the story and break it into marketable chunks. In the end, the Invasion Trilogy was born! In mid-2010, a fourth manuscript started to take shape. Upon completion in 2012, a fifth book (technically a spin-off) was started in addition to the outlines for additional volumes.

However, before writing more, Michael wanted to bring the original works to readers. The first edition, D'mok Revival: Awakening, released in August 2013 at the Chicago ComicCon. The second, Retribution, in July of 2014. The third January 2015 release. To novelettes were also released in 2015 extending the literary universe.

In September 2016, the New Eden Saga, the start of a new trilogy, launched with a full novel: D'mok Revival: New Eden.

As of October 2016, Zummo was already 160 pages into the next novel, a spin-off, called Weun Academy, with an intended release of fall 2017.
