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!

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))…

Phew, these last couple of weeks have been crazy! The kidlets went back to school, soccer started back up, and I had a book release! I want to thank everyone for their support during the release of The Winter People. THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone who has read it, tweeted about it, posted on Facebook about it, reviewed it (both good and bad reviews) and reached out to me to chat about it. I’ve gotten a chance to meet some new people (reviewers, bloggers, readers, authors) and it’s awesome.

While we’re on the subject of The Winter People, yesterday one of my agent mates informed me that The Winter People actually made it to #26 on the hot new releases for young adult and teen ebooks on Amazon! So THANK YOU FOR THAT!! Seriously can’t express my gratitude enough.

And to answer a few questions that have been coming in via email/twitter/Facebook/Goodreads/DMs:

Are there more books in The Winter People world? YES. There will be 3 books total set in this world. The next one, I believe will come out at the end of next summer (I believe August 4, 2015–but this date is subject to change). We’ll get to see more of some of the characters from TWP and also meet some new ones (some not so nice–LOL).

When is The Legend of Me coming out? I’ve actually been asked this a lot lately (grins) and I wish I had a good answer for everyone. But at this point I have a floating release date. There isn’t one set in stone, it’s just a matter of being able to fit it into the publishing schedule. I’ll likely find out 1-3 months before it’ll release and when I do, I’ll let everyone know. Trust me, I’m dying to get it into everyone’s hands as much you’re dying to read it!

BOOK SIGNINGS: For those of you asking where I’ll be for my book signings, as of right now I have a few set up, but they’re all in Michigan right now. I’m hoping to get some out of state ones set up in the future and I’ll keep you posted on those! As of right now these are the ones I have on my calendar:

Horizon Books in Traverse City, Michigan September 27, 2014 from 2-4 pm (address is in my news tab)

Fremont Area District Library in Fremont, Michigan October 16, 2014 7-9 pm (this will be a signing/speaking event–address is in my news tab).

B & N in Rochester Hills, Michigan on October 25, 2014 7pm (this will be a panel w/5 other authors see news tab for address).

I might have another one in Grand Rapids, MI at the Rivertown Crossings Mall/B&N on October 14th. Still waiting for all the information on that one.

So definitely drop into see me if you can! Would love to meet you!

Hope everyone has a lovely day!!! ((HUGS))…
