Amazon gift card & Summer Lane's Bravo: Blood Road

In need of a book for summer reading? How 'bout one written by Summer Lane? How fitting a name is that?

Summer Lane is the #1 bestselling author of 17 thrilling books, including the phenomenal bestselling Collapse Series, Zero Trilogy and Collapse: The Illustrated Guide. Her series about a dog, The Bravo Saga, released April 22nd, 2016, and was hotly anticipated by the reading community, becoming a bestseller instantly.


Bravo: Blood Road is the second installment of The Bravo Saga, the ultimate, thrilling conclusion!

Bravo and his beloved handler, Lieutenant Nathan Ingalls, are together again amidst the ashes of an apocalyptic California. Together, they are using their skills to help a rebel militia group seek out survivors in the desolation of Death Valley.

But when the Death Brigade - a vicious anarchist group arisen from the dust of a fallen society – rolls into town, tragedy strikes. Someone is taken. Neither Nathan nor Bravo will allow that. The hunt is on – Bravo will not fail in his task to protect his friends.

Still curious about Bravo: Blood Road and the author? Time for an interview with Summer...


What was your honeymoon in Hawaii like?
So much fun! After a crazy year of writing and planning the wedding, I was relieved to get away. We honeymooned on the Big Island, in Kona. My favorite part about Hawaii was the tropical side of the island, over near Hilo. The botanical gardens and Rainbow Falls actually made appearances in one of my books because I was so astounded with the natural, exotic beauty of the tropics. Also, I’m pretty sure my husband and I spent most of our time in restaurants – we ate so much amazing food in Hawaii! We’re returning to Hawaii for our anniversary (although it will be on a different island this time – Maui!). I can’t wait!

What inspired you to write a Bravo sequel?
Because the story wasn’t over yet, and I knew it needed one more book to truly be complete. Bravo’s story is very interesting and he really deserved his own small series. He’s a character with a lot of integrity. I have a German Shepherd of my own (we named her Kona, because she looked like a Kona coffee bean when we adopted her!), and I really understand the utter and complete love those dogs have for their people. It’s incredible.

What are you working on right now?
I am currently working on a historical romance, Running with Wolves, and a non-fiction project, Prolific: Writing a Hit Novel. The first installment in my Collapse Series spin-off, The Resurrection Series, will release in January 2018. I’m always busy.

What's the best writing tip you can offer?
Write what you love and write what you know. Less is more. Write freely but edit ruthlessly. Don’t be afraid to take risks, and to keep it real.

What's a book written by another author everyone should read in their lifetime?
The Call of the Wild, by Jack London. It’s one of those books that changed my life. It opened my eyes to the magnitude of Man’s real and terrible impact on the wilderness. The character of Buck is so flawlessly brought to life by Jack London, that I can tell you I have never been more touched by any other character – human or not. It’s really breathtaking. I highly recommend that everybody should read it at least once.

  6. I learned that Bravo is forced to fight for his life every day in an arena while cruel spectators make bets on the odds of his victory. Kind of like the old Roman fight to the death shows, I imagine.
