Happy Valentine’s Day!! Okay, so I in 2011 I had a book that came out called Staking Shadows…which is a story I adore… This last year (2013), the publisher who published it went out of business and the rights reverted back to me on it. So, for those of you who haven’t read it yet, I’m going to be giving away PDF versions of it, for FREE!!! YAY! This is my Valentine’s Day treat to you. And all you have to do is leave a comment on my blog w/your email address in it and I’ll send you a copy of it! See, easy – peasy.

Also, I will pick a few commenters below and send some signed Romeo Club bookmarks…(they’re adorable) so make sure you leave an email address so I can contact you if you’re chosen.

If you’ve already read Staking Shadows, then no worries, I’ll be having other contests in the coming months with chances to win stuff so definitely keep your eye out. I have a few books releasing in the next couple of months that I’ll have some cool stuff up for grabs.

Here’s the back cover blurb for Staking Shadows:

STAKING SHADOWS

Summer “Sun” McKellar was twelve when her world was shattered by the appearance of the “soul-suckers,” a god-like hybrid with a vapid hunger for human souls. Within mere days entire towns were wiped out. But Summer was one of the lucky ones, or at least she managed to escape with her life—what was left of it.

Now, five years later, Summer is one of only a handful of survivors left on Earth. A place where night dominates and humans are harvested for their souls. By daylight Summer is the leader of a small band of survivors, while at dusk she becomes a hunter, with only one goal in mind; to take back her world one dead soul-sucker at a time. This routine serves her well until an enemy patrolman named Raven saves her life. He causes complications she never dreamt possible, making her rethink her strategy. For their chance encounter and the danger that surrounds it will ultimately force them to choose between loyalty to their own kinds or the forbidden…

Hello and HAPPY SEPTEMBER! Well, here we are, back to one of the busiest seasons in the Purdy household (Fall). The kidlets are back to school and sports are once more underway—which means long days and lots of running! But I have to admit, it’s one of my favorite seasons too. There are soccer games to watch, leaves changing colors, football games (go Lions), cooler weather, and overcast skies (which so helps me write—LOL).

Writing has been kind of spotty again (sigh), but mostly because I’m trying to brainstorm and jot down different plot notes for TWP book 2. There are so many small things that I want to make sure I get into the story and not forget. But one of the POVs is getting far more notes than the other one, so I have to go back in and make sure I’m spending as much time with the other character (hehehe—that’ll teach me to write a book w/2 povs).

I’ve had several emails as of late asking me about my other books and whether or not I was planning on writing follow up books/or continuing the series. The answer is YES-ABSOLUTELY!!! All three books that I currently have out with the smaller presses are planned as series. When I sold these particular books, I only signed on for 1 book at a time—so I’m not currently contracted for the other books yet, however, that being said, I do plan on finishing them out. Book 2 for My Dad’s a Paranormal Investigator is actually already started, and book 2 for both Staking Shadows and The Fairy Godmother Files are both plotted out, but not written yet. Right now, I’m under contract for The Winter People and the follow up books (as in all 3 have to be written within a certain amount of time). So I’ll have to focus on those first, but once I get those under my belt, I promise to go back and finish up Ima, Sun, and Maggie’s stories. I pretty much know how each series will end, just a matter of sitting down and getting them written.

I want to thank all the people who have emailed me or sent me messages on Facebook regarding my stories—it’s been lovely chatting with you. I’m so glad that you’re enjoying my stories as much as I do!

Oh and if you’re looking for a weekend read you MUST MUST MUST try to pick up Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood. Seriously. This has been one of the best YA books I’ve read this year. It’s kind of like an alternative history having to do with witches—there’s romance, magic, *kissing*, and a FABULOUS story line.  

Hope everyone has a FABBITY FAB FRIDAY/WEEKEND! ((HUGS))
