#AADSAV author, Boone Brux To Do List for End of World List

My To Do List for the End of the World

How exciting. In two days the world will end—according to doomsayers. This got me thinking about things I hadn’t accomplished. Here are the top five things I realized about my endless To Do list if the world does indeed end.

  1. I’m so glad I didn’t stress too much about dieting. Yeah, I’m a bit on the fluffy side, but when I weigh the happy times I’ve had that involved food, it was worth every chubby calorie. Let me add that if the world doesn’t end I will be back to my exercise and healthy eating regime.
  2. I’ve never conquered my fear of sharks. Since I live in Alaska, that hasn’t affected me much. They may have my lifeless carcass if those ocean going predators survive the end of the world.
  3. I’ve never gotten my house completely organized or decorated. I actually have a separate To Do list for this section of my life. Getting that big blank wall painted orange doesn’t seem that important if I’m not around to enjoy it.
  4. I’ve often lamented that I hadn’t taken the time to create an amazing piece of art work to hang in my home. But then I looked at my kids and realized they are the best thing I’ve ever done and they make my house the most beautiful place on earth.
  5. What stands out for me when I think about the end of the world coming is how I’ve treated my fellow man. I can honestly say that I’m pleased with how often I tell my family I love them. I’m covered there. But there are times when I maybe wasn’t as generous with my kindness to others.

So here’s my To Do List for the end of the world.

  1. Tell my family I love them some more.
  2. Tell everybody I know that I think they’re awesome and that they’re friendship has meant more than they’ll ever know.
  3. Live in the present, because even if the world doesn’t end, we’re all on borrowed time.
  4. Eat one really great last meal. I’m thinking something with pasta, cheese, bread, and wine—lots of wine. Of course I’ll have to Turbo Jam that off if the world doesn’t end, but still, it will be worth it.
  5. Cuddle my growling, bad-tempered pound puppy. I’d take all those rejected dogs in if I could, but since I can’t, I’ll make his last minutes on earth good ones. 
So that’s what I’ve learned and what I will do. I’m really hoping that December 22 rolls around and Earth is none worse for the Mayan calendar. I’m fairly certain this is just a prank the Mayans are pulling on us. Laugh it up guys. On that note, I want to wish everybody a Happy End of the World. You’re all awesome and your friendship means more to me than you’ll ever know.

Leave a comment and tell me what you would do if the world was going to end. You might win a copy of my latest book, Kiss of the Betrayer. Of course you’ll have to spend your last hours reading it, but I really can’t think of a better time.

Happy Holidays Everybody!

Kiss of the Betrayer
Bringer and the Bane Book Two
by Boone Brux
Genre: Fantasy Romance
Publisher: Entangled Publishing
Available at: Amazon  B&N

For fifteen years Luc Le Daun has blamed himself for the death of the woman he loved. His secret guilt has led him into a life of danger, risking all and committing to none.

Killing Luc Le Daun has been all Jade Kendell has thought about for years. But when her plan goes awry and she's brought into the Bringers' fold, her own dark secret threatens to be revealed. Desire for a better life wars with a promise made long before she understood the ramifications.

In a deadly mission, Jade and Luc embark on a journey into the Shadow World. As they attempt the impossible, ignoring the attraction growing between them becomes harder to deny. The slightest misstep could mean the loss of their souls and give the Demon King exactly what he needs to open the Abyss of Souls and annihilate the Bringers.

As a multi-published and an award winning author, Boone's writing drips with experiences from real life. Addicted to anything that might make a good story, she weaves tales that range from dark fantasy to humorous romance. Settled in the icy regions of Alaska with the love of her life and twin daughters, it's not uncommon to find her tapping away on her iPad on a windy beach or the barren tundra. Be warned, anyone and every even is fodder for one of Boone's novels.

  1. Thanks for a fun post and congrats to Boone on the new release! It's on my desperately want list :) Ummm... I'd probably try to spend time with friends and family... cuddle my dog... get drunk :)

  2. I would spend more time with my family and friends and get drunk for the first time. Maybe make love with a stranger. Thanks for the giveaway. Tore923@aol.com

  3. I would tell my family (again) that I love them. And maybe finish that favorite manuscript in case a future civilization comes across it. :-)

    I am reading Shield of Fire and was just thinking last night that I'd like to read Luc's story next. Thanks for writing it! :-)

  4. ok - I can't cuddle MY dog - he DIED this year
    sorry - still bit depressed over that
    would LOVE to win & read!!!
    PICK ME!!

  5. I'd say goodbye to loved ones, then I would definitely eat some awesome food, lots of chocolate included and go out reading a good book, so immersed in the story I wouldn't even notice the end. :D

  6. Gather with my family, so we stay together til the end. Eating, laughing, and reminiscing with them sounds like a great time to me.

  7. well.. my brain just can't think of any 5 things i really wanna do.. probably spend some quality time with the family (minus the drama) and with my friends.
