Okay my lovelies, I wanted to keep you updated on the writing front. My book The Summer Marked (2nd book in the Winter People series) has been pushed back a month to September 22, 2015. There are many reasons for this move. But one of them is that I had a family emergency earlier this year with one of my kidlets. And this happened the same day/night I got edits for The Summer Marked and was in the midst of edits on Daisy and the Front Man. Unfortunately, emergencies don’t take book deadlines into consideration when they happen.

I’d taken a couple weeks off of work to try and be at home and take care of my child. And due to the stress and things we were going through, my book/edits had to go on the back burner a couple different times. In order to make sure that I put out the best book possible, and not try to just rush through everything, my publisher and I thought it best to move the book out a month.

While things are getting better for our family we still have our up and down days. But we’re praying the worst of it is behind us. All I can say is that mental illness is NO joke and you can’t imagine all the up and down days that come along with it.

Just want to thank all my readers for their continued excitement for my books–I apologize that this one will be a month later than first planned, but hopefully you understand. Thanks so much and can’t wait to chat with everyone about The Summer Marked. Oh, and Daisy and the Front Man will still release on schedule (June 16, 2015).

((HUGS))

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.

Phew I am coming out of my writing cave to say hi and Happy Belated New Year (and Christmas). I’m in the process of finishing up a secret project. Only like 8,000 more words to write on this bad boy and we’ll be done (woot-woot). I’m also going to be going through proofs on my YA Contemporary book How to Unbreakup, which will be coming out on 2/10/15!

If you’d like to sign up to be a part of the book cover reveal you can go here: http://www.yaboundbooktours.blogspot.com/2014/12/cover-reveal-sign-up-how-to-unbreakup.html

Let’s just say things have been crazy busy on the writing front. I have 4-5 books coming out in 2015:

How to Unbreakup 2/10/15
Secret Project late spring/early summer 2015
Summer Marked (Winter People bk 2) 8/4/2015
Where there Be Humans is slotted for Fall 2015 (but that might change)
And hopefully Legend of Me will be out in 2015 as well (still working on details of this one).

So yeah, lots going on. On the home front all the kidlets and animals are doing awesome. We’re in indoor soccer season in the Purdy house, so we’ll get to watch some kick butt games.

I’m going to try and post more this upcoming year. Just have to get a couple deadlines under my belt this month then I should be back on track to posting more often. Maybe I’ll throw in some short stories…

Hope everyone is well and surviving winter ((HUGS))…
