Romancing Autism: Guest Blog with Boone Brux

What does romance and autism have in common? A lot when it comes to Entangled Publishing. April is Autism Awareness Month. So many lives are touched by this tragic condition and to help those who deal with autism every day, the people at Entangled Publishing have joined forces for the cause.

On April 20th, Entangled will be releasing three novellas, Bittersweet by Brooke Moss, Remember Me by Nina Croft, and Tweet by yours truly, Boone Brux. When you purchase one or all of these books, 100% of the profits will go be donated to Autism Speaks. It was Entangled Publishings vision that besides the actual production costs, all other monies be given to the Autism Speaks to help those families dealing with this difficult condition.

As an author, it's rewarding to be involved in a project I belief so highly in. On a personal note, I'm gratified that friends will benefit from this great project. Since any adversity takes unconditional love, we decided to write from a theme of Love Knows No Boundaries. How far would you go for love?

Tweet is a humorous paranormal romance about a painfully shy woman named Faye Albert, who inadvertently follows Satan on Twitter and binds her soul to the Prince of Darkness. It quickly becomes obvious that it will be no easy task to find a loophole in the contract.

Christopher White, a hunky photographer from work, not only offers to help, but actually believes her. After much ado that involves Faye trying to exorcise her computer, a bobble-headed Jesus, and a lot of bad social media, Faye and Christopher must face off with one of the devil's very determined minions.

Will Faye give up everything she's ever dreamed of, including Christopher? Purchase Tweet to find out.

Also check out Entangled Publishing for more information about all three releases.

Thanks so much for having me. It's been fabulous.

Boone is also the author of the Entangled release, Shield of Fire.

Shield of Fire (Bringer and the Bane, #1)
Boone Brux

Protecting humans is the Bringers’ duty. Sending demons to the Shadow World is their pleasure.

In one night, Ravyn’s life plunges from barely tolerable to deadly. Forced to flee the only home she’s known, she stumbles headlong into the clutches of Icarus, a powerful demon intent on stealing her powers. Unfortunately for him, she has no intention of cooperating.

When Rhys realizes the woman he’s rescued from the Bane Demon is no mere human, his obligation as a Bringer dictates he protect and train her in the ways of his people. But he’s unprepared for the intense desire he feels for the fiery Ravyn. To surrender to his need may mean her death.

As the Demon King’s desire for ultimate power escalates, fathers are slated against sons, and foes are made allies. The Bane threat upon them, Rhys and Ravyn must quest to unite the last of the Bringers—and explore a passion too powerful to ignore.

Praise for Shield of Fire

“With her debut novel, SHIELD OF FIRE, Boone Brux weaves a story transcending genre and time. Every page seems filled with demons, dragons, shape-shifters, redeemers, and the underlying thread of death-defying love. Using electrifying fights, passion-drenched scenes, and amazing imagery, Boone has brought one hell of a world to absolute life! Wow!”
~ Jackie Ivie, bestselling author of the ‘Knight’ books

“Dark adventure blended with a captivating romance. Boone Brux has joined my auto-buy list.” ~ Tielle St. Clare

Hi Boone! I want to thank all of the authors and Entangle Publishing for doing this. Autism is a subject near and dear to my heart. My son has Asperger's Syndrome which is a form of Autism. Autism Now is a wonderful organization to be involved with.
