Okay, so obviously it’s been awhile since my last post. Life sometimes gets SUPER busy and I have to stay off social media (LOL). First of all, I have some news to share (woot-w00t) 🙂
I’ve sold another book (AHHH-so freaking excited). It’s entitled: Incriminating Dating (YA Contemporary). It’s described as Election meets Can’t Hardly wait. It’s set for Winter 2017 publication date.
Official sales info here :
We’re only a few months away from the release of The Winter’s Spite (the 3rd and final book in the Winter People series). And I’ll have a YA Contemporary entitled French Fries, Football, and My Freshman Year coming out tentatively October 2016. And next year I’ll have more books coming out (YAY). So lots of busy things.
So if I’m kind of quiet on here, it’s not because I don’t love you guys, it just means that I’m trying to plow my way through 3 book deadlines (1 that needs edits-lots of them (hahaha), another 1 that is only like 1/10th of the way written and it’s due to my editor in June, and I have another 50 page proposal I owe another editor for a book by May. So yeah, plate is kind of full). Not to mention I have a day job that keeps me away from home for about 12 hours a day (between long commute/and working). Plus we have soccer season in full swing, we’re planning a graduation party for my son, and we have another son who is getting married in a few months.
I promise though to try to keep you updated with any news or awesome things that’ll be going on 🙂
Hope you’re all doing well.

SOOOOO…today I get to share some really awesome news that I’ve been sitting on! *Wait, what?* LOL. I have a new book deal for Legend of Me!!!! SQUEEEEE….
I know, some of you are like, “Wait a second, I thought you’d already sold this book?” Well, I had, but some things fell through with it and so we ended up getting the rights to it back this fall.
In true ninja/super hero form, my agent Fran, subbed the book back out to find it a new home. And we have….
Rebekah Purdy’s LEGEND OF ME, pitched as THE VILLAGE meets INTO THE WOODS in dark retelling of Little Red Riding Hood, in which a teen girl goes into the woods despite warnings about the evil creature that roams there, to Georgia McBride atMonth9Books, for publication in 2018, by Frances Black of The Literary Counsel(World).

Hey my lovelies! Well, 2015 has almost slipped away from us. It’s definitely been a year, that’s for sure. A year, I DON’T want to repeat. I should have some more news for you in the coming days/weeks. Some of it good news, some of it kind of a mixture of ‘good/bad’ news, depending on how you look at it (LOL). Yeah, I know, that was kind of not helpful at all.
I’m still working on The Winter People Book 3. I’m getting closer to finishing it up. Nearly 3/4 of the way through with it.
I’ll soon be working on a couple other projects which I’m totally excited about. One is a contemporary book and the other two are Fantasy books (YA of course).
I’m super looking forward to my vacation, which is coming up in 3 days (not that I’m counting–hahahaha). Gonna hang out with my kidlets, hubby and animals. I’ve got two of my kids who got engaged this year. And another one who got into Central Michigan University (starting next fall as he’s a senior this year).
So next year we’ll have 2 weddings and a graduation (OMG, how is this possible?). So lots of busy stuff to come.
As the year comes to an end I just want to tell all my readers how much they mean to me. Thank you EVER SO MUCH for the emails and messages you send. Thank you for reading my books…it means SO SO much!
Hoping to have a couple more out there next year for you 🙂
I hope everyone has a blessed holiday season, no matter what you’re celebrating…

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))…
