"We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master.” —Ernest Hemingway
2/6/16 I am currently working on a one book sequel to The Blue Series. It should be finished in the next few months, and then I'm writing a separate, standalone novel on a new hero/villain, hopefully done by the end of this summer. In the meantime, I am offering my Blue Series for free on Smashwords and other affiliated sites simply to get my name and the message of this series out there. Nothing gives me more enjoyment than reading about how my Blue Series is touching the lives of so many people. My audience encompasses a wide age range, from the youth, young adult reader to the older veteran reader fan base. I am personally invested in bringing about gay heroes in literature, which is another reason why I am offering my series free for a limited time. All I ask is if you do download my series, you maintain an open mind and heart. I promise my books will take you on an emotional, thrilling ride, but it is worth the read. I have no "paid for" reviews or ARC reviews on Amazon or other sites for my books. They are all reader fans, and most are strangers who have loved the series.
If the books do well on Smashwords, then I will continue to offer them FREE. If I am seeing more activity at Amazon, then I will probably return to Amazon's KDP to give my story more publicity, so if you haven't already, download my books for a fun, emotional, and entertaining read. (Although they are dark, there is a happy ending for some of my characters.) And if you love the books, please write me reviews or email me with your thoughts and feelings. You can also message me or post on my facebook page.
8/18/15 Hello Everyone!
I wanted to let all potential readers of The Blue Series know (hopefully before they read a book of mine), a few important points before deciding to embark on my story.
First: My entire series deals with God and humanity. He is an interwoven theme in the books, more so towards the end in Vol 7 and 8, but nonetheless, God is a very important character in my series. With that said, if you do not feel comfortable reading about my version of Him, please do not read my series. Good versus evil is a major play between some of my characters therefore, God has to be involved.
Secondly, My books are listed as dark fantasy, but I've also listed them in the LGBT section because there is both straight and gay sex in my series. Book 1 and 2, not so much, but it does heat up as the series goes along, however this series is NOT gay or straight erotica. If that is what you are all looking for, there are PLENTY of books out there to choose from.
And speaking of sex, my main characters are teenagers, and yes, they are placed in adult situations. They grow up in this series, which is why the first two books are limited in terms of the sexual content because obviously they are young. If this makes you uncomfortable, please do not read the series.
Lastly, there is bondage, rape, sexual violence, regular violence, profanity, and dark themes in this series. You may not see much in Volume 1, but trust me, it is dark. Please do not read this series if any of that offends you. I hope you all enjoy my series.
My Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Please write me a message if you want, I'd love to hear from you.
Bio: As a novice writer, I wrote the first three books from The Blue Series during the years 2006 through 2009. I then wrote Volume 5 through 8 in the last two years, finishing the series last fall.

I just read the first novella and all I can say is what an interesting, insightful, and thoroughly engaging story! I read most of it in one quick read because it was so entertaining. I look forward to book two!!!
- Flicker Blue 2: Jigsaw
on April 12, 2012
I am loving this series. It is like nothing I've read before. I feel as though I am watching it on a movie screen and that says more than I can write about how Brea tells her story. Well done!
- Only the Innocent

This was a very entertaining story! I read it on a plane from San Francisco to Raleigh surrounded by crying babies and it saved me! I loved the premise, enjoyed the imagery and the attention to detail Katrina adds to the background to give the reader an accurate picture of each scene. The characters Bette and Phillip are likeable, and the ending, perfect. A great read!

LOVED THIS BOOK! It's set up for a perfect sequel and griping til the very end. Brea Nicole Bond does an amazing job creating suspense throughout this story. It's been awhile since I've sat down to just read a book and not write, edit, proofread fifty times, etc, and I have to say, Reaper was a thrill, now one of my favorites. If you love to read about dark fantasy mixed with urban reality, read this book.
- Dorian's Destiny: Altered
on Dec. 01, 2015
This story is riveting from the very first chapter. I was moved by Dorian's struggle to accept his fate. The emotional purging he goes through, the resistance, the passive acceptance, violence, and then the resurgence of love, are written in a style that is easy to read and relate to on a personal level. Looking forward to the next book!
