Tuesday Promotion in Motion: Pembroke Sinclair, Beware of Zombies

Posted by Lisa Lickel on April 10, 2012

Welcome Pembroke Sinclair, fellow Muse author, to Reflections in Hindsight.

Her stories have been published in Static Movement;; The Cynic Online Magazine; NVF Magazine online, NVF Magazine Issue 8, NVF Magazine Issue 2, and NVF Magazine Issue 4; Sonar 4 Publications; Golden Visions Magazine; and Residential Aliens.

 About the Book:

The world has come to an end. It doesn’t go out with a bang, or even a whimper. It goes out in an orgy of blood and the dead rising from their graves to feast on living flesh. As democracy crumples and the world melts into anarchy, five families in the U.S. rise to protect the survivors. The undead hate a humid environment, so they are migrating westward to escape its deteriorating effects. The survivors are constructing a wall in North Platte to keep the zombie threat to the west, while tyranny rules among the humans to the east. Capable but naïve Krista is 15 when the first attacks occur, and she loses her family and barely escapes with her life. She makes her way to the wall and begins a new life. But, as the undead threat grows and dictators brainwash those she cares about, Krista must fight not only to survive but also to defend everything she holds dear—her country, her freedom, and ultimately those she loves.

1. What do you love about this book?

The zombies. I’m a huge zombie fan, and I’m very excited to be able to write in the genre. I like my main character, too. She’s spunky, cynical, and won’t take crap from anyone!


2. What’s the main thing you learned during the process of writing and publishing this book?

That things change…a lot! I never had any intention of making this a YA book, but after an agent suggested it would work better, I revised it. In the end, I think it worked out better. Instead of my character sounding like a whiner, she’s filled with teen angst!


3. What should your readers discover and want to share with their family and friends after reading this book?

A good plan to counteract the zombie apocalypse.


Ha! Sounds necessary. Thanks, Pembroke!
