Saint runs an inn for Time Travelers, which leaves him
little time to write his trashy romance novels. Always a pit
stop in the crisscrossing lives of his out-of-date friends and
family, Saint wonders where his place is in a world that is
quickly passing him by. 

Unfortunately, he also seems to attract
more… supernatural “guests,” too.

(YA- Young Adult. Sci-fi + Fantasy. Time travel. Slice-of-life.)

“Saint for Rent” is written and illustrated by Ru Xu.
Editing assistance for Chapters 1-4 by the wonderful William Squires and Rem.

It contains animated .gifs, historical drama, futuristic utopia/dystopia,
and the kind of non-linear storytelling in which seemingly unrelated
character arcs merge and develop as the main plot advances.
