Welcome to BA’s Book Features showcasing a small collection of books to be released this week, or showcasing a special feature as part of a blog tour and promotion event. Contact me if you’d like to have your new-release title featured on Bookish Ardour.
I know I had the first post of this feature go up on Wednesday, that’s my designated day for it, but at the moment there are several titles coming out that I’m really excited about. So… extra features! Today’s feature is for Samantha Boyette‘s newest title. She is one of the first authors I reviewed for back in 2011 and I’ve been following her work ever since.
Introducing Samantha Boyette and her newest title Prime
- Release Date: September 26th 2013

Thirteen-year-old Simon doesn’t remember his older sister, Alice, but she remembers him even if she doesn’t know he is alive. When the Prime virus hit, they had already been separated. Simon stayed at home on Haven Medical Base with their neglectful and verbally abusive father while Alice was away working a political internship out of town.
Now they both face a world where the few survivors hide inside buildings and behind tall walls as the victims of the virus, known as hostiles, stalk the night hungry for the flesh of the living. Within their seemingly safe walls, the survivors must contend with the best and worst of human nature.
Meet Samantha Boyette
Born in Upstate, New York, I’ve traveled extensively in and outside of the United States. Currently, I reside in the Finger Lakes region of New York.
I’ve loved reading and writing since childhood and recently have become more serious about writing. I enjoy reading young adult and fantasy stories and I really enjoy writing them. In the past few years, I’ve written a few books and short stories and am in the process of editing them for submission.
At some point in future I will be sharing a review of Prime. I can’t wait to read it!
