A novella of approximately 80 pages, Creators is a new adult apocalyptic prequel to the Contributor trilogy.

When the imminent collapse of the world's food system threatens to all but eradicate the human race, it's up to nineteen-year-old Liang Zhang to determine which of his company's employees will live and which will die.

Liang and the other Job Creators have only weeks to choose which of their staff and families to move into the domes, the last refuges on the barren planet. Despite their best efforts, the Job Creators are unable to keep their selection project under wraps, spurring violent protests against the privileged few.

Now, Liang must race: against starvation, against insurrection, and against his own conscience.

About the Author

Nicole has progressed from scribbling in notebooks to banging on keyboards, but she’s never managed to stop daydreaming at inappropriate moments.

Born and raised in Michigan, Nicole lives there still with her husband and two wonderful children. When not answering the demands of her characters, Nicole can often be found curled up with a good book or spending far too many hours acting the hero in whatever video game is her obsession of the moment.

Nicole rarely meets a genre she doesn't like, and as a result has written contemporary romcoms, fantasy fiction, fairy tale retellings, and dystopian/post-apocalyptic fiction. She's the author of the Fairytale Collection books, the YA/NA crossover Contributor trilogy, and the Astoran Asunder series.

4.5 Excellent! The food system on Earth is collapsing despite the best efforts of the Job Creators and their staff of Contributors to find ways to feed the masses. The human race is about to be wiped out and the only way to save it is to choose the ones who will be admitted to the newly constructed Domes.  With the death of his father, 19-year-old Liang Zhang’s shoulders now have the unenviable responsibility of choosing who to allow into his company’s Dome. Each family, each person, is evaluated and he must make the final decision as to who lives and who dies because the Dome will only sustain 125,000 people and the population needs to be diverse to take care of the jobs that need doing. Every person needs to Contribute in order to qualify for the limited resources. I wouldn’t want to make those decisions. Would you? Liang Zhang sure doesn’t, but he must. Time is running out.  After reading Contributor I saw that there was a prequel short available, one that describes how and why the Domes came about. This short story is filled with tension, lots of tension and a thousand, a million, terrible choices that must be made. To top it off those choices land squarely on a 19-year-old. I can’t imagine making those choices at the age I am now, making them at 19 seems grossly unfair. To be put into that position before you have had a chance to really live will shape a person for the rest of their life. But will it be a good thing or a bad thing? Will it give the person a God-complex, break his mind or remind him that life is precious and those left behind should never be forgotten? What do you think it would do to you? *Book source ~ Picked up for free on Amazon.
