THE UNDEAD ROAD Tour Schedule | New Release & Contest

Hey, everyone! There's a blog tour starting today for The Undead Road by David Powers King (co-author of Woven) and I want to make sure you all know about it because it looks killer.

This first book in a new YA zombie series is already getting rave reviews on Amazon. Readers are saying "His take on the rise of zombies is one of the most convincing I've ever heard of, and his characters are engaging and believable." -Haley H.

D.R. Weaver says "If you like zombies, be sure to check this out!" and Jbentley7 says you have to read it "...even if you don't like zombies!" and everyone says it's hilarious. Seriously. Just go look at the reviews.

Best part is, The Undead Road is independently published, so not only do you get what sounds like an awesome book, you get to put on your indie hipster hat and support a struggling, starving artist at the same time! Win/win, dudes.

The links are all down below, but if you didn't notice, the ebook is on sale for .99 this week only and FREE on KindleUnlimited.

Nothing brings the family together like a zombie apocalypse …

Fifteen-year-old Jeremy Barnes would rather watch a zombie movie than shoot a real one, but he has no choice if his family wants to survive the end of the world. Their plan? Drive across the infected United States to a cabin in the Colorado Rockies without a scratch, but their trip takes a complicated detour in the middle of Nebraska when they find Kaylynn, a girl who can handle a baseball bat better than Jeremy can hold a .45 Berretta. And when they stumble into a sanctuary, Jeremy soon learns that Kaylynn is stronger than she looks—a deadly secret lies inside her.

After the radio picks up a distress call from Kansas City about a possible cure, Jeremy’s parents go with a team to investigate. They never return. The only way to find their parents is for Jeremy and his sister Jewel to rely on a dangerous girl who might just turn on them at any moment.

Praise for The Undead Road:
"For me, zombie stories are never about the killing. They're about the survivors and how people deal with the apocalypse. To this undead end, David Powers King has come up with the most original spin on zombies I've ever read." - Michael Offutt, author of Slipstream and Oculus
