YAY, today my YA Contemporary Romance Incriminating Dating is out! SO excited for everyone to read this one…

IncriminatingDating500 (1)

Blurb:

BLURB: Opinionated, unconventional Ayla Hawkins isn’t the type to use blackmail, but sometimes a girl has to stand up for what’s right. So when she catches Mr. Perfect Luke Pressler doing something decidedly un-perfect, Ayla’s got the dirt she needs to get Luke on her side—in the form of her new fake boyfriend.

One mistake. All Luke wanted was a night to goof off, to blow off steam. The next thing he knew, he was pretending to date Ayla Hawkins. But his little blackmailer turns out to be kind. Honorable. And just the breath of fresh air he didn’t even realize he was suffocating for. But Luke and Ayla come from different worlds, and once the terms of their agreement end, their fauxmance will, too.

So French Fries With a Side of Guys is out TODAY! SQUEEEEEEEEE….

However, Amazon is saying it doesn’t release until the 20th (which my publisher is checking into). But here is the blurb/cover for it, and there’s a link for you to enter a giveaway below that my publisher is doing:

frenchfries

 

Blurb:

Payton Carter is one of six kids (all of which are named after famous football players), not to mention the only girl in the Carter household. With this much testosterone and no mother, it’s no wonder she’s absolutely clueless when it comes to makeup, dances, and talking to guys she’s crushing on. And now she’s about ready to start her freshman year of high school, which is nerve wrenching enough, but when she ends up running into her crush, Chance Montgomery, at her dad’s sports restaurant, she finds out that the quarterback for their rival team is moving to Aller Falls. This is nothing short of fate.
Payton realizes she has to find a way to impress Chance and get him to ask her out or at least know she’s interested in him—preferably without dropping a plateful of fries on his head, like she did last time. After taking her two oldest brothers’ advice, she decides to go out for the freshman football team, figuring that between practices and games she and her crush will surely be able to talk. And maybe talking will lead to something more permanent or at least to a first kiss. Only this plan backfires in ways she never imagined, when she beats Chance Montgomery out of the starting quarterback position. Now not only does she make him the laughing stock of the team, but also has to figure out how to avoid the snotty cheerleaders, a traitor best friend, not to mention winning games for her team. Too bad this is just the beginning of her freshman year.

Eep, so this is a book that’s been in the making for over 10 years. I wrote it in 2006 and then shelved it. Then when my publisher was asking me about another YA Contemporary Romance, I decided to try and clean this one up. So now, everyone will get to meet Payton Carter–and her brothers…Did I also mention this is a sports book? And Payton plays football?

There’s also a giveaway you can enter too! So follow the link below to see the cover reveal. It’s kind of Retro looking, but I think that’s kinda cool.

BLURB for The Winter’s Spite:
On the eve of the winter solstice, Salome receives word of a family tragedy in the human world, and an urgent request to return home. But after a failed attack on Winter, and the whereabouts of the Winter Court unknown, Nevin forbids her to go, declaring it too dangerous. However, Salome knows she needs to be with her family and can’t sit by to wait for the inevitable.
Gwenn has been a royal guard most of her life, and although she’s not a fan of humans, she has to admit Salome’s growing on her. So when Salome begs her to cover for her for a few days so she can be with her family, Gwenn can’t refuse. Gwenn soon finds herself creating diversions to keep Nevin from discovering Salome’s disappearance. Problem is the Council is growing suspicious of Salome’s absence, and has started making threats about Nevin’s removal as king. With her lie on the brink of discovery, Gwenn needs to find out what’s taking her brother and Salome so long to return. When she discovers the portals are closed, and someone within the Council has betrayed Summer, Gwenn knows the kingdom’s in jeopardy. But before she can confide in Nevin about helping Salome leave Faerie, Gwenn finds herself at the enemy’s mercy, fighting for her life.
When Salome arrives in the human world, she finds everything in chaos. Grisselle, the Winter Queen, has done the impossible and brought war to Salome’s world. And Kadie is acting as her right hand. Monsters born of man’s worst nightmares roam the streets—dark faeries and ghosts bring terror and destruction. And to her horror she discovers an old enemy is back from the dead, while a new one lurks in the shadows—watching her, hunting her—preparing to make its move. And this time they mean to finish what they started.

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 :

R. Purdy's announcement

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.

OMG, I can’t believe it’s finally here. The Summer Marked is officially out today!!!! This is the 2nd book in The Winter People Series…

TheSummerMarked-500x750

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.
