Book Tour: Sinners & Saints by Kristina Garlick

Title: Sinners & Saints: A Patriot’s Manifest
Author: Kristina Garlick
Genre: YA Fantasy
So there is an outbreak, which leads to a zombie apocalypse. But nevermind why this outbreak occurs, just know that it happens. Naturally, sh*t hits the fan and the bad guys skip through the streets. Queue the mayhem along with the general breakdown of society. Blah. Blah. Blah. How manytimes has this tired story played out?

To revolt against what is considered the standard undead mythos, some author is going to produce twinkling, lovesick zombies. The beautification of the zombie will be the next big thing in Hollywood… either that, or things will swing back to pirates. or maybe outer space ninjas. Who am I to predict the next big fad in entertainment? What I can tell you is that Sinners and Saints: A Patriot’s Manifesto is unlike any zombie story you have heard before because it is my story.
My name is Zoey Major and I live in Fort Star, New Jersey. I am also a survivor in the zombie apocalypse. Seems very cut and dry but I have been hiding something- like really huge. My secret is game changing. I am not like the others... I know, what a surprise twist! Unfortunately, I can’t tell you why I am different. If you really want to know, you have to figure it out. Hey, even in these dark times, a girl needs her secrets.
