Sinners & Saints: A Patriot's Manifesto by Kristina Garlick - Book Blast and Giveaway



About the Book



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.











Sinners & Saints is $0.99 cents during the tour.

Excerpt

Present Day, July 7, 1:22 pm

One of the first things I noticed when Saint and I were driving into the fort was that the PSC's flag was now waving from the fort's flag post. I know that the PSC flew their flag out of courtesy, to signify to any other groups passing by that this fort was presently occupied by their group. While the courtesy was appreciated I still did not like seeing the PSC flag flying high. It sincerely took all my control not to jump out of the truck, run to the flag pole and yank down their disgraceful flag. Oh, how I missed Old Glory waving in the majestic sky.

Saint: “The minute we get out of this vehicle, everything is going to be different.”

Zoey: “I know. Eyes are already on us.”

Saint: “Yeah, and I guarantee you it has nothing to do with the undead zombie head, in the back of our truck. I think we have their attention.”

Zoey: “You could be wrong. They could be interested in the tacky mask on Killian’s face or the fact we have a zombie, which is missing all his limbs.”

Saint: “I can’t tell if you are kidding.”

I pick up one of Saint’s water bottles and take a sip out of it as not to break my emotionless face. Years of playing poker had taught me not to give away anything. I think at this moment my poker face was aiding me quite well.

Saint: “Don’t you get it?”

Zoey: “What?”

About the Book

But, as his world begins to unravel, has he become genuinely delusional? Or is he really on to one of the most dangerous global conspiracies of all time? Against all odds, only love and a true friend's faith can save both him and the world as we know it from the abusive power of evil.













Excerpt

Lary weaved in and out of traffic driving like a maniac toward the intersection of I-495 and the beltway.  He continued on the bluetooth.  'Good work, by the way.'

Marvin kicked back in his chair.  His pale and puffy moon face was lit by the glow of several monitors in the darkened room.  He casually shoveled a handful of Cheddar Jalapeno Cheetos into his mouth, crunched a few times then continued.  'Lucky break.  Seeing that woman with the manager down by 3410.  I thought something was up.  Especially when that hillbilly retard started showing her the camera.'

'How'd you know when to look?'

He slapped his hands across each other to remove the crumbs.  Flecks of fluorescent orange dust   fell all over his coffee stained stretched out blue business shirt.  'Trade secret, boss.'  He giggled.  'No, really. I have a passive IR device hooked up to an android cellphone utilizing an IP webcam application that is  pointed down that alley.  Every time something crosses it, I get several JPEG photo captures that are instantly emailed to me with a security alert.'

'English, please.'

'A gadget that spies better than Nick Fury and Elektra combined.  And like I said last night, yesterday morning's capture feed looked suspicious.'

'Good work.'  He crossed into the shoulder just inside the fast lane and passed three cars in a row.  'Any other subsequent feeds give you a better view of our mysterious woman?'

Marvin swallowed and coughed.  'Not really.  Damn nice ass, though.  Athletic.  Dark hair.  Just saw her from back.  Plus those cameras they have out there are total crap.  That moron doesn't give a rat's ass about his system. Now, if it was me, I'd have—'

'Enough, Marvin.  Look, hang tight.  I may need your help again if they happen to get loose.  Remember our agreement.'

Silence.

He patted his suit coat.  'Mr. Glock and I are going to make this collection call.'

Barrier by D.C. Renfroe - Cover Reveal and Giveaway



About the Book

Available October 10, 2016

When Claire Luna is kidnapped and taken to a remote island, her predictable life is torn to shreds. She thought she understood grief, loss and loneliness. But nothing prepared her for the island.

Tucker Knight had his world turned upside down when he was a young teen. He’d known love, security and normality. But things changed, and somehow he lost his innocence along the way.

Barrier takes you on a compelling, thrilling and sometimes brutal journey of Claire and Tucker, who in a bid to control their destiny, must learn about trust and submission. And also about love.

The island is under the control of Dr. Stephen Bell, a scientist obsessed with the secrets of humanity through genetic engineering. Claire is part of his obsession, and quickly comprehends Bell’s twisted intentions. She is forced to decide between submission and life-altering consequences. In her desperate attempt to survive, Claire surprises Bell and Tucker with her strength to fight.

But, can she trust Tucker? Is he her enemy or her savior? Claire understands that to surrender means to survive, but can she endure? Tucker can’t help but be enamored by the spirited and determined Claire, but to survive, he must face and overcome his haunting past. Up until Claire’s arrival on the island, he had never thought himself capable, or deserving, but perhaps this was his chance to finally do the right thing.
