A Note:


I once told myself: IF I am accepted into grad school, this blog would no longer be updated. As it turns out, in April, I received news of my acceptance for the Fall 2013 semester, where I will attain a Master's degree of Science in Nutrition.

Running a blog, as many of you may already know, is a demanding side job once the excitement wears off. And once I fell out of the blogging community's loop (have you SEEN how many blogs there are now? Wow!), it was like the kiss of death. Despite my best efforts, I couldn't get into a blogging routine once this happened due to the disconnect I felt from the community.

So I took a break. I struggled with the loss and with missing my blog. And then I realized I didn't have to run Book Faery to still be a book reviewer; I could read my books and post reviews online. I'm still a book review blogger, just not in the traditional sense.

I'll still be online. You can chat with me on Twitter, where I'll be posting links to my reviews and talking books. I'll also be posting links to nutrition articles. And if you'd like to connect with me where I guarantee I will post reviews, just add me as a friend on Goodreads.

So that's all, folks! It's been a fun and amazing journey, and I thank you all for listening to my thoughts about books. I hope we all can keep in touch elsewhere :)

AAD NOLA Author Spotlight: Boone Brux

Thank you so much for having me here at Book Faery. I’m so excited to reveal my cover and to announce the exciting new contest I’m sponsoring.

First let’s do the reveal.

I’ll admit I became a bit breathless when I first saw this cover. So much smooth back and muscle that needed my caressing. But, I can’t take credit for this eye-candy. Heather Howland at Entangled Publishing created what I like to refer to as my afternoon pick-me-up.

Kiss of the Betrayer is book two in my Bringer and the Bane series. This story revolves around Luc and Jade, two secondary characters from book one, Shield of Fire (Tori: You can check it out on Goodreads here!). Their relationship is tumultuous at best and they get in a lot of trouble when they decide to keep secrets from the rest of the Bringers.

Now onto the contest.

Be part of my next book, Kiss of the Betrayer, by entering the Name the Character Contest.

Rules: Read the character description and come up with a clever name. You can submit just a first name, just a last name, or both.

How to Enter: You may enter five ways.
  1. Email your name choice to boonebrux@gmail.com. Put Name Contest in the subject line.
  2. Tweet me at www.twitter.com/boonebrux

  5. Last, but not least, you may enter from my blog, www.boonebrux.blogspot.com
    Just click on Contact Me at the upper right corner of the sidebar and send me your entry.
Easy squeezy!

How will the name be chosen?
  1. Every entry will be considered and chosen through a process of elimination by myself and other Entangled Publishing editors. 
  2. In case of a tie, the winner will be randomly drawn.

What will I win?
  • The character in Kiss of the Betrayer will be given your contest entry name and you will receive a glowing acknowledgment in the book, praising your brilliance and creativity. 
  • Your contribution will be heralded throughout the land on several blogs, including my personal blog, website, Facebook and the Entangled Publishing blog.
  • You will receive a signed copy of Shield of Fire and Kiss of the Betrayer when released.

So let your creativity flow and name this character.
  • Female, approximately 29 years of age
  • Sturdy and curvaceous, medium height, long brown hair and hazel eyes
  • Profession: Prostitute, works the docks.
  • Private Life: Poor, Single mother with three children, 12, 4, and five months.
  • Redeeming Qualities: Strong, resourceful, has a good heart, would rather sell her body than accept charity, a good mother, fearless, smart, streetwise, rolls with the punches.
  • Less Redeeming Qualities: Stubborn, too curious for her own good, has associations with a lot of unsavory people. 
  • Significance in the book: This character is slated to become a major secondary character, appearing throughout the rest of the series.
Okay people, name that character. I can’t wait to see the entries start rolling in.

Boone has lived in the beautiful state of Alaska for nearly two decades. She spent many of those years in the bush, where the internet and flush toilets were a luxury. Boone’s motto? “Have laptop, will travel.” It’s not uncommon to see her pounding away at her computer during camping trips, fishing expeditions, or in their family plane as they fly over the open tundra.


You can buy Shield of Fire at...
Amazon ~ B&N ~ Books on Board ~ Diesel Books ~ Book Depository
