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))

Okay, so today is FRIDAY!! Can I get a woot-woot? LOL. So glad it’s the weekend (or almost weekend–still have to get through several more hours at work).

Today I’m sharing a short snippet of The Fairy Godmother Files: Cinderella Complex on the Astraea Press blog! So stop by and say hi.

Also, Astraea Press is having kind of a summer blow out sale for their ebooks. Both The Fairy Godmother Files: Cinderella Complex and My Dad’s a Paranormal Investigator: Seeking Shifters are only .99 for the ebook on these sites (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Amazon UK So if you’re looking for a fun/summer read, definitely scoop ’em up!

I also got the go ahead for book 2 of Winter People (woot-woot). So excited. My lovely friend/crit partner (Kelbian) is going to be working with me on a booktrailer for TWP book 1. Totally excited.

Well, only 2 more weeks until vacay–SO can’t wait. Like you guys have NO idea how ready I am to just have 2 weeks of relaxing!

Hope you all have a FAB WEEKEND!

So the summer is flying by. Okay, so I don’t mind that it’s flying for the simple fact that I want my vacation to hurry up and get here (LOL). But that being said, it can slow down while I’m on vacay. We’re taking our annual trip to the Upper Peninsula in Michigan. And this year will be even more special because we’re looking to buy a vacation home up there (woot-woot).  There is some lovely wilderness and beaches up there. Besides, I figure I can also use it as a writing getaway (heheh).

 I’m working on book 2 for The Winter People. Boy is it WAY slow going (groans). The day job has been eating up a lot of my time. But I am making progress. It isn’t due until next year, but I’m trying to get a jump start on it before edits etc come in on Winter People.

I’ve been reading some great books this summer.  I just finished reading The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater. I absolutely loved that book. There is some great mythology in it and of course some romance (hahaha). The backdrop added so much to the story. I’m currently reading The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead—so can’t put this one down. Love the Sydney and Adrian dynamic.

I’m missing Vampire Diaries, but am excited that Destination Truth is finally back (on SyFy). Seriously awesome show.

Oh and before I let you go, I have to share another lovely review I received for The Fairy Godmother Files from Romancing the Book! I’m so glad that people are enjoying this story. It was such a blast to write.

Well Happy Friday the 13th…enjoy your weekend.

Squeeee…you guys, how AWESOME is this? Coffee Time Romance gave The Fairy Godmother Files: Cinderella Complex 5 cups! OMG, that’s so flipping great.

If you get the chance, drop by and check out the review!

I’m writing chapter 6 of MD2 (My Dad’s a Paranormal Investigator bk 2). Hoping to pick up the pace on this a bit so I can get it done before July/August. Maybe sooner if I can crack down. Hoping to juggle another book at the same time, but we’ll see how that works out.

Hope everyone has an awesome day! Happy May!
