Hey all, so my publisher for my boy band book: Daisy and the Front Man has it marked down to .99 EEEEP! It’ll only be marked down until 10/2/16 🙂

DaisyAndTheFrontMan_FC

Blurb:

When Daisy Morris finds out she’s spending the summer with her dad, bodyguard for Seconds to Juliet—the hottest boy band around—she knows it couldn’t be more perfect. But not because she’s a fan. Oh, no. Because ever since front man Trevin Jacobs completely humiliated her by standing her up for homecoming, Daisy is out for a little revenge. Yup, Trevin Jacobs is goin’ down…

When one of his bandmates bets Trevin he can’t make Daisy—the gorgeous but surprisingly ice-cold daughter of their bodyguard—fall in love with him, it’s a bet he can’t resist. Sure, Daisy won’t give him the time of day for reasons he can’t understand, and her dad’s hell-bent against his little girl spending time with a superstar. But the terms are set, and Trevin is determined to make Daisy fall…hard.

But every front man should know never to trust a girl with a pretty face…

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:

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.

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.
