6/10/16 Blue Dawn is now available on Amazon. It is 0.99cents because once again, there is no free selection. You can challenge the price by citing Smashwords and they should offer the lowest price.
I will run a one day free series giveaway starting tomorrow and ending Sunday. With a 5 day free promotion per 90 days with Amazon's KDP program, I had one day left to use. So, from midnight tonight to midnight Sunday, all 9 Blue Series books will be free on Amazon. My contract ends late July, so I will decide at that time what I will do.
6/9/16 For those new readers who may want to check out the Blue Series, it is currently on Amazon and KDP select. I will be having a 1-2 day free trial of all books coming up in the next week or so, so I will post here beforehand so that you can download the series. It's a long read, but perfect for summer ;)
6/8/16 Blue Dawn Part 1 is now available on Smashwords FREE for a limited time. Please do not read it until you have finished the Blue Series, as it will not backtrack enough to summarize the main storyline. I will be starting Part 2 shortly, with an estimated publishing date of Christmas, 2016. I hope you enjoy Blue Dawn Part 1!!
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: The story for The Blue Series was first created in my head as a teenager growing up in Oceanside, California during the mid-eighties.
After graduating from SDSU as a registered nurse, I married, had two children, and raised a family after relocating to Boise, Idaho where I currently reside.
After so many years had passed, one day I decided to write a single page of the story. It then turned into a novel. Not realizing the story was so big, I wrote a second Volume. Forced to split Volume 2 into two parts due to its size, I continued to write Volumes 3 and 4 during the years 2006 through 2009, but the story still wasn't finished. After taking a break, I wrote Volumes 5 through 8 in the last two years, completing the series in late 2014.

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!!!

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!

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.
