Guest Post w/ Samaire Provost

“The year is 2017, and the Black Plague infection has swept across most of the United States, leaving death and chaos in its wake. Martial law is the rule rather than the exception, with outbreaks cropping up when they’re least expected. Alyssa and her friends must not only battle outbreaks of the disease, but also find themselves pursued by government agents – men and women determined to track them down at any cost.”

The excerpt above is a description from young adult author Samaire Provost’s newest addition to her Mad World series, which began with Mad World: Epidemic. The second installment, Mad World: Sanctuary, continues the story of Alyssa and her friends as they make their way through the zombie apocalypse. In a guest posting, Provost provides insight into the inspiration behind the series. –KMR

mad world sanctuaryThe inspiration for writing SANCTUARY is really part of the inspiration for writing the whole Mad World series. To tell the story of what happened during the zombie apocalypse.  SANCTUARY, specifically, brings us from a point where the gang has survived for five years, but the net is closing in around them. The government is after them. To know why, you have to read the book. To see how this put-together family survives and helps one another, to see their bravery, courage, and fortitude in the face of nearly insurmountable odds, is to read the incredible adventure itself. SANCTUARY is the story of this team trying to get to safety, while protecting their most precious member from sure torture and death. Determination, incredible courage, and resilience, as well as a skill set they could only come by from surviving the Zombie EPIDEMIC this long, is the only thing that saves them, in the end. They must get tosafety. They MUST survive. –Samaire Provost
