You guys I’m SO SO SO excited to share my book cover for Summer Marked, book 2 in The Winter People series. I absolutely LOVE the cover and how it ties into the first one.

The Summer Marked by Rebekah Purdy

BLURB:

The sequel to the chilling Winter People returns to the world of Faerie, and is a romantic and enchanting follow-up.

Fresh off a break-up with her boyfriend, Kadie’s glad to be home from college for Thanksgiving. All she needs is a rebound guy, a box of chocolates, and some girl time with her best friend, Salome. Problem is, Salome isn’t returning her calls, and her family won’t say where she is. Feeling sorry for herself, Kadie ends up at Club Blade, a place filled with pumping music, dangerous guys, and promises of a good time. However, when midnight strikes, Kadie’s fun turns into a nightmare as she’s ripped from the human world into Faerie by a vengeful Winter Prince named Etienne. For the first time in her life, she realizes the monsters Salome always spoke of are real, and they’ll stop at nothing to destroy her friend.

Salome thought the winter curse was behind her. But winter has left its mark. Not just on her, but on the whole summer court. The Kingdom of Summer is falling apart, and Nevin is hanging onto his throne by a thread. With war on his doorstep, he has no choice but to send Gareth into enemy territory, which means Salome will be left alone—vulnerable in a world she doesn’t understand. A place where beauty is deadly and humans are pawns in the macabre games the Fae play. Both Kadie and Salome will have to call on all their strength to survive in a world where humans aren’t meant to be. With death and enemies all around them, it’ll be a miracle if they can survive.

OMG, I So So SOOOOO, can’t wait to read this book–it looks so cute: The Summer I Became a Nerd by Leah Rae Miller releases on May 7, 2013

Blurb:

On the outside, seventeen-year-old Madelyne Summers looks like your typical blond cheerleader—perky, popular, and dating the star quarterback. But inside, Maddie spends more time agonizing over what will happen in the next issue of her favorite comic book than planning pep rallies with her squad. That she’s a nerd hiding in a popular girl’s body isn’t just unknown, it’s anti-known. And she needs to keep it that way.

Summer is the only time Maddie lets her real self out to play, but when she slips up and the adorkable guy behind the local comic shop’s counter uncovers her secret, she’s busted. Before she can shake a pom-pom, Maddie’s whisked into Logan’s world of comic conventions, live-action role-playing, and first-person-shooter video games. And she loves it. But the more she denies who she really is, the deeper her lies become…and the more she risks losing Logan forever.

Born and raised in northern Louisiana, Leah Rae Miller still lives there on a windy hill with her husband and kids. She loves comic books, lava lamps, fuzzy socks, and Cherry Coke. She spends most of her days reading things she likes and writing things she hopes other people will like.

So last week I signed a book contract with Astraea Press! I’m really excited to finally start getting my stories out there. I have a copy of my cover in my sidebar for my story My Dad’s a Paranormal Investigator: Seeking Shapeshifters, which is due out February 2011. As I get more details, I’ll post them.

I do intend to keep pursuing getting an agent and traditional publishing, but I have a few stories that I absolutely LOVE, sitting around collecting dust. And rather than just use them as doorstops or foot stools, or building blocks for a manuscript fort on my desk, I decided to start querying/submitting to some e-publishing houses. This is giving me an opportunity to share my stories, which is what writing is all about for me. It’s about giving people (teens) an escape from everyday life. I’ve dreamt of being published for as long as I can remember and now it’s finally happening!

Just wanted to share my good news and say how pleased I am to have signed with Astraea!
