6/14/17 My first 9 books will be free tomorrow through Friday on Amazon only. I've taken Blue Dawn part 1 off of Amazon and have it distributed on all the major retailers free. Once Blue Dawn Part 2 gets published, I will have it available on all the retailers so that everyone can download it on their preferred site.
6/11/17 I am in the middle of a second edit of Blue Dawn Part 2. It will be published in the next two weeks, barring any unforeseen complications. Blue Dawn Part 1 is available free. It is 99 cents on Amazon, so petition it for free if you want to download it there.
As for now, I will keep my Blue Series on Amazon. I will be having a free promotion of the entire collection at the same time I publish Blue Dawn Part 2, so stay tuned in for the dates.
6/9/16 I normally would not say this, but PLEASE do not read Blue Dawn if you haven't already read the Blue Series.
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 start out as 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. 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. It does not preach Christianity. I am not a Christian in that sense of the word. I do believe in God and feel very comfortable writing about Him.
Take care and happy reading,

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.

As a continuation of the same storyline, Part 1 takes place almost at the end of Blue Flame, Volume 8. There is very little backtracking or summarizing of the Blue Series in this sequel.

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.
- 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!
