Independent Long Island author Marianna Buffolino’s debut novel, Fallacy: Entangled, was awarded third place in the “Fiction Romance New Adult” category in this fall’s The BookFest Awards.
The BookFest Awards celebrates exemplary works of fiction and nonfiction, evaluating entries in various categories while considering genre, theme, and aesthetics. The final rankings are decided by a select group of experts from the literary and entertainment realms.
“As an independent author, receiving recognition can be challenging,” says Mrs. Buffolino. “Writing Fallacy and the upcoming installments in the series has been my passion, and I am honored to have my work acknowledged.”
Fallacy: Entangled follows Aria who, along with her twin brother Lorenzo, vows to escape their family’s criminal legacy. After their father’s death, Aria returns home to find Lorenzo leading the family business of organized crime, forcing her to confront her past. Caught in a love triangle and torn between her self-made life and the one she was born into, Aria faces a difficult choice that tests her loyalty and challenges her resolve.
Fallacy: Entangled has been praised by readers, with one reviewer referring to Mrs. Buffolino as a “creative genius.” “With vivid characters and a gripping plot, this book will draw readers in and keep them turning the page to reveal the twists and turns in the dangerous game Aria and Lorenzo have to navigate,” another reader writes. “Buffolino creates a vivid and believable world, populated with characters that readers will root for.”
Mrs. Buffolino’s sophomore novel, Fallacy: Unraveled, is scheduled to be released in 2024. In this book, Aria faces the consequences of her choices, and watches it all unfold.
