Popular models Eric Claussen, Ryan Rose, and Cory Zwierzynski featured on book cover
BOYSTOWN series named “Best of 2017”
“The latest installment in Jake Biondi’s BOYSTOWN series is action-packed, gripping, and full of twists and turns that will leave the reader simply stunned and emotionally drained,” said Amazon book reviewer Roger Ward of BOYSTOWN Season Eight, which hit bookstores on Valentine’s Day.
BOYSTOWN series author Jake Biondi has once again teamed up with designer Anna Crosswell of Cover Couture to create the latest BOYSTOWN book cover. “It’s great to be a part of BOYSTOWN as the designer for such a diverse and exciting series,” Crosswell said. The BOYSTOWN Season Eight cover features popular actor-model Eric Claussen as well as models Ryan Rose and Cory Zwierzynski.
“It’s an honor and a privilege to be on the cover of a BOYSTOWN book. I am humbled and greatly appreciate this opportunity. I'm eager to help expand the BOYSTOWN audience even more and, hopefully, bring the series to TV,” said Claussen.
“BOYSTOWN is a must-read series filled with twists and turns that everyone will love,” Zwierzynski. “I was so grateful when Jake Biondi asked me to join the BOYSTOWN team. I have watched the BOYSTOWN audience grow with the release of each installment of the series.”
About working with Biondi, Claussen said, “It’s just wonderful. He’s a great, down to earth guy with a big heart. We have a shared vision for BOYSTOWN and it's great to work together to introduce more and more people to his amazing series.
Zwierzynski said, “Working with Jake has been awesome. Over the past four years, we have gotten to know each other well and have become good friends. He knows how to tell a great story and keep the audience engaged from the very first page of each book. I am honored to be one of the faces of BOYSTOWN.”
“I’m grateful and flattered,” Biondi said in response to his BOYSTOWN book series being included in the BookLikes.com “Best of 2017” book list. This is the second consecutive year the series has been named BookLikes.com’s “best.”
“I must say that this series just gets better and better,” wrote Marco Manganiello, founder of BookLikes.com. “I have been glued to my Kindle all week. Jake Biondi can’t write the next book fast enough.”
“The eighth book is a very special one, so a Valentine’s Day release date seemed appropriate,” Biondi told fans of his BOYSTOWN book series. “Because of the success of the series, fans from all over the world have been looking forward to the new book. The ending to BOYSTOWN Season Seven foreshadowed the deaths of two main characters, including a member of the Mancini family, and readers tell me they are longing to know who died.”
Biondi added, “I love that fans are connecting with the characters and want to know what the future holds for them. The broad appeal of the book series is amazing. BOYSTOWN has an incredibly diverse audience.”
Biondi promised that readers won’t be disappointed by his latest installment. “Season Eight picks up right where book seven left off and slowly resolves the cliffhangers that ended the seventh installment, including the deaths of two major characters. But don’t expect to find out those two identities right away. In true BOYSTOWN fashion, there are many twists and turns at the start of Season Eightbefore readers discover exactly who died.”
“Jake Biondi has demonstrated once again that he is a masterful storyteller. Fans of the series, both old and new, are going to be thrilled,” said Ward, who was privileged to read an advance copy of the new BOYSTOWN book. “Characters loved and hated will need to face life-altering and potentially life-ending events that only Mr. Biondi’s creative mind could have thrown at them. The reader will be introduced to new characters whose true intentions remain mysterious.”
The BOYSTOWN book series continues to maintain an average customer rating of five stars, the highest possible rating on Amazon.com. “I am so proud of BOYSTOWN’s five-star rating on Amazon,” Biondi said. “It’s a tribute not only to the series itself, but to the incredible fans that BOYSTOWN has all over the world.”
“Jake Biondi is one of the most masterful writers of fiction of our time,” said Ward in his review of the BOYSTOWN series. “The saga is told masterfully through several subplots which include unforeseen twists and turns that will leave the reader stunned and speechless.”
The BOYSTOWN series is available in paperback, audio book, and all e-book formats. Readers may order autographed paperback copies of the books directly from BoystownTheSeries.com.
