Book Blurb:

Sixteen-year-old Brielle has grown up hearing tales of a beast that kills humans, leaving behind only a scattering of bones and limbs. Or so the village elders say. She thinks it’s just their way of keeping children in line, though it doesn’t explain her grisly premonitions of blood, claws, and severed heads.

When Lord Kenrick, Knight of the Crowhurst Order, shows up asking questions about the legendary monster and Brielle finds a mangled body in the woods, she begins to wonder if the grim stories are true. Her attraction to the handsome knight grows as she spends time with him searching for clues to the creature’s existence, and she becomes even more determined to help him discover the beast’s location.

But as her seventeenth birthday approaches, her nightmares worsen. If Brielle doesn’t figure out the connection between Kenrick, the monster, and visions of a ghostly woman in the woods soon, more people could die. Including those closest to her…

Exclusive Excerpt!

Brambles scratched my legs, snagging my skirt. Gnarled trees bent in gruesome forms, while thick shadows splayed out beneath them. A heavy gloom settled over the woodland as wisps of fog slithered like snakes against the ground. I shivered.

Don’t think. I picked an animal trail to follow, stepping over dead branches and forest debris. Blood pounded in my ears and the hair on the back of my neck prickled. I twisted around to glance behind me.

Nothing there. Only the trees. Urgency gripped hold of me and I picked up my pace once more. As I scrambled through the thicket, an overwhelming scent of rotten meat made me gag. I covered my mouth with my hand and stopped running when a bright red piece of fabric caught my eye. With hesitant steps, I moved toward it.

“Oh God.” I stumbled. There, sticking out from beneath a barberry bush was a severed arm, its finger pointed at me in accusation. My breath came in gasps as I scanned the rest of the clearing.

My foot nudged against something and I looked down in horror to find the head of Liam Gatekeeper staring up at me.

I screamed, backing away as fast as I could. All around me were pieces of his body scattered like breadcrumbs. I shielded my eyes with my hands, until I bumped into something else.

With another scream, I whipped around only to find myself faced with an oak tree covered in dried blood and deep claw marks. My vision darkened and I prayed I wouldn’t faint, that I wouldn’t be stuck in the woods. Because somewhere out here, a monster lurked. If I didn’t believe it before, I did now. The beast was real.

 THE WINTER PEOPLE
Author: Rebekah Purdy
Release Date: July 1, 2014
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Pages: 320
ISBN: 978-1622663682
Goodreads/Amazon/Barnes & Noble

Book Blurb:

An engrossing, complex, romantic fantasy perfect for fans of Kristin Cashore or Maggie Stiefvater, set in a wholly unique world.

Salome Montgomery fears winter—the cold, the snow, the ice, but most of all, the frozen pond she fell through as a child. Haunted by the voices and images of the strange beings that pulled her to safety, she hasn’t forgotten their warning to “stay away.” For eleven years, she has avoided the winter woods, the pond, and the darkness that lurks nearby. But when failing health takes her grandparents to Arizona, she is left in charge of maintaining their estate. This includes the “special gifts” that must be left at the back of the property.

Salome discovers she’s a key player in a world she’s tried for years to avoid. At the center of this world is the strange and beautiful Nevin, who she finds trespassing on her family’s property. Cursed with dark secrets and knowledge of the creatures in the woods, his interactions with Salome take her life in a new direction. A direction where she’ll have to decide between her longtime crush Colton, who could cure her fear of winter. Or Nevin who, along with an appointed bodyguard, Gareth, protects her from the darkness that swirls in the snowy backdrop. An evil that, given the chance, will kill her.

Exclusive Excerpt!

The sky darkened with ominous storm clouds. Giant flakes fell onto my face, sticking to my eyelashes and cheeks. Snow blew unhindered across the yard into what looked like small tornadoes.

Oh God. It’s happening again. The frigid air. The creaking of the treetops beneath the wind. Even the way the snow blew across the yard.

I only had one more feeder. Just needed to toss the seeds in then I could leave. Be safe.

The pond water rippled, while the trees bent beneath the strong gusts. Soon, everything became so white I couldn’t see the house. In the distance a strange tinkling sounded, like dozens of wind chimes.

What had the shrink told me to do?

Ten, nine, eight. Breathe. Seven, six, five. Shit!

 Panic stole my thoughts. I backed away from the pond as the flurries swirled toward me. Chasing me.

Then, I bumped into something—something that felt quite human. A firm chest, arms, hands. Not something, someone. A shriek tumbled from my lips and I spun around to face my captor.

“It’s okay. I won’t hurt you,” a soft masculine voice said, pale hands clinging to my arms as he kept me from falling.

My gaze followed those long fingers, up black leather sleeves, to the most gorgeous face I’d ever seen. My breath caught in my throat. I’m gawking. But I couldn’t help it. His raven hair shot with strands of blue, his face pale and perfect, like an ice sculptor had chiseled it into existence. His eyes—oh God, his eyes. They were the palest blue I’d ever seen. Glacial. He had to be over six feet tall, muscles evident through the tight shirt he wore beneath an unzipped jacket.

His mouth turned up at the corners as if enjoying my scrutiny. A cocky grin that made my cheeks warm.

“You’re trespassing.” I tried to keep the tremble from my voice. “This is private property, or can’t you read the signs?” Bravo, that’s right, scare him off with your bitchiness.

He chuckled. And it sounded like the low song of the chimes. “Doris doesn’t mind me coming around. In fact, I’ve met you before, Salome.”

My name on his lips made my knees go buttery. I groaned inwardly.

“You know my grandma?” I fidgeted with the bucket still in hand.

He gave a nod. “Yeah, I’ve known her for years. But I haven’t seen you since you were a child.”

Warning bells went off in my mind, but I pushed them aside. If he knew my grandma, then he must be okay. “Funny, I don’t remember you at all.”

“Don’t you, Salome?” Strands of my hair blew about my face. He reached a hand out as if to touch them then stopped, dropping his arms back to his side.

“No. Grandma’s never mentioned you.”

He gave me another cocky grin. “Well then, maybe we should be reacquainted.”

“Or maybe not.” I snorted. “I’m not sure how you got on the property, Grandma keeps all the gates locked.”

He produced an antique-looking skeleton key. “She gave me this. Like I said, Doris has known me for a long time.”

“I’m sorry. I’m not trying to be a jerk or anything, it’s just my grandma never mentioned I’d have visitors.” In fact, I wondered why she didn’t ask this guy to watch her house instead of me.

The arrogance left his face and he stared at me. “Perhaps, we can try this again.” He held his hand out to me. “I’m Nevin.”

 About the Author:

Rebekah was born and raised in Michigan (just look for the mitten-shaped state on the map). She’s lived there most of her life other than the few years she spent in the U.S. Army.  At which time she got a chance to experience MO, KS, SC, and CA.

She works full time for the court system and in her free time she writes YA stories. Pretty much any genre within the YA realm is game for her, but her favorites are fantasy, urban fantasy, paranormal romance, thrillers, light sci-fi, and some time travel.

She also has a big family–she like to considers them the modern day Brady Bunch. When her hubby and her met and got married, he had 3 children from a previous marriage, she had 2 and  have 1 together. It’s a lot of fun though.

And she can’t forget her other family members–yep, they’ve got some pets: 4 dogs, 3 cats,  and 1 turtle. Everyone in the family has one…she won’t bore you all with their names (unless you really want to know). Okay, you talked her into it! Jack, Pearl, Grr…(yes that’s her dog’s name), Callie, Shadow, Mooshoo, Grouchy, and Sorbert. Other than writing some of her other hobbies include: reading (mostly YA of course), singing, swimming, football, soccer, running, camping, sledding, church, hanging with her kids, and traveling.

She belong to a fabulous writing group called YA Fiction Fantatics (YAFF) and you guessed it they all write YA!

What’s Up Wednesday!

WUW Winter Holly 1(So pretty!)

It’s What’s Up Wednesday time!  What’s What’s Up Wednesday?  Well… It’s this super cool awesome weekly meme started by Jaime Morrow and Erin Funk.  If you want to participate you should link your What’s Up Wednesday posts to the list on Jaime’s blog so that we can all stop by and say, “Hi!”

What I’m Reading

13517455I’m finishing up REBOOT by Amy Tintera. This book is everything I hoped it would be (The Republic of Texas…hehe, I love it! *proud Texan*). I’ll have a review up sometime this week but the budding romance feels real, Wren is hilarious yet stoic (she’s my girl), and the world is unfortunately believable. Kudos to Tintera, she rocked this one. I’m not even done with the book and I can confidentially say it’s one of my favorite read of the year, of course, I’m sure by the time I’m done I’ll be crying or something.

I think I’m going to read PIVOT POINT by Kasie West next. Cybils has been just the push I needed to read all these wonderful 2013 reads, here’s hoping my to-read list will decrease!!

What I’m Writing

Today, I’ll be working on my MG, THE ARTIFACT COLLECTOR about two children who inherit a shop with magical artifacts from around the world and are forced to go into the “Otherworld” to find their lost aunt. Here’s a scene from it (I finished this the other day and am pleasantly surprised by how much I like it.):

Kaia is 9, her brother Aaron, is 12, they’re in their aunt’s antique shop…

Kaia stopped when she saw the scene below. Swords fought swords, books did somersaults through the air, vials were pouring out their contents. A sea of madness flowed before them, and Aunt Edith was nowhere.

One lone sword noticed the two siblings and left its post by the front door to charge at them. “Run,” yelled Aaron pushing Kaia up the stairs. She ran, only to have her leg slip through the floorboards. “Aaron,” she called.

Aaron ducked to avoid the sword, causing it to wedge itself into the wall. It wiggled around like a fish caught in a fisherman’s net, trying to set itself free.

Aaron rushed to Kaia and grabbed hold of her hand. He’d almost pulled her out when the sword fell to the ground, flipping and flopping, before charging once more at the two siblings.

Aaron let go of his sister’s hand in order to dodge the sword. He looked around, trying to find something to defend himself. Seconds before the sword attacked, he noticed a loose part of thee stair rail. He yanked at the post and raised it in front of him, just in time. The sword pressed against his wooden stick, he pushed back, swiftly moving it to the left. After this, he was taking up fencing.

The sword swiped again but this time, Aaron wasn’t fast enough and it produced a tiny cut on his cheek. He winced, and the sword knocked the wooden staff from his hand. The sword reared back then charged once more, aiming right for Kaia.

“Stop,” yelled Aaron, throwing his body over her. His body heaved, matching her heavy breaths. He closed his eyes yet nothing happened. Pushing off Kaia, he peeked. The sword had fallen to ground, lying still as if it had never attacked them in the first place. All around them, everything had stopped. Books lay strewn across the floor, one on top of the other. Some with pages ripped, others sliced in half thanks to the lifeless swords lying beside them. Shards of glass blanketed the ground and pieces of jewelry hung from the bookshelves and cabinets like fruit on a tree.

It seemed Aaron had found the magic word. Now if only they could find Aunt Edith. What would they tell her? Would she believe they hadn’t made this mess?

What Else I’ve Been Doing

My friends and I have been getting ready for our Thanksgiving Dinner tomorrow! I’m really excited (& nervous) as this is my first time away from home for Turkey Day but I am looking forward to spending it with friends. I’m still recovering from a cold, I really don’t know what’s wrong with my body, but as per usual, I’m blaming it on this weather. The more and more I think I want to live & work in publishing in NYC, the less that becomes a reality as I don’t think my body is suited for this kind of weather. Three weeks until home 🙂

Oh, I’ve also been watching lots of TV. I picked up Arrow. I have a MAJOR problem with the way women are portrayed in some of these shows (e.g. wearing a low buttoned shirt to work…not realistic) But, I think it’s officially time I stop acting like I don’t like the CW’s teen shows. Everyone’s just so pretty (which is a problem in and of itself as personally, I look back on my high school days and cringe). However, I’m about to watch the latest episode of The Originals right after I finish this post 🙂

What Inspires Me Right Now

With Thanksgiving being tomorrow, I’m inspired by friends and family. As well as by my inner strength. As though as I am with myself, I’m very proud of me. I have no doubt that whatever I chose to do, will turn out right in the end.

I’m also inspired by other writers, their stories (of perseverance and struggle and success) and their books. We’re a pretty boss group of people. It’s wonderful to know that.

Happy Thanksgiving and I hope you find ways to inspire yourself and be inspired!! What’s going on with you?

The Trouble with GoldieBlox

YES, thank you for this! This is exactly my thoughts about the toy (GoldieBlox). While I commend GoldieBlox on the diversification of the three girls, the elaborate commercial that kept me watching to see what these girls had created, etc…the toy still stresses that we, girls, need “special toys”. It’s a start, yes, but it’s not the solution. I played with legos, my brother and I…he also played with my barbies, go figure (of course, Barbies are riddled with gender, etc…problems).

The point is, buy your daughter some legos. She’ll love them just as much. It’s society that creates these stereotypes (e.g. girls not good at/no interest in engineering). Not children. My little brother and I played with everything together, we could care less. We just wanted to have fun and be our mischievous selves.
-Patrice

Re-imagining Engineering

Over the last few days, a little video from a company called GoldieBlox has gone viral, with headlines such as: “This Awesome Ad, Set to the Beastie Boys, Is How to Get Girls to Become Engineers” (this particular headline via Slate).   Watch the video if you haven’t already: it’s utterly charming and features a quite impressive Rube Goldberg machine.  (And watch it quickly: the Beastie Boys are not amused with the re-purposing of their song, so who knows how much longer the video will be available!)  As the video’s viral spread across the internet continued, person after person emailed me, posted it on Facebook with my name tagged, and tweeted it at me, in many cases saying things like “Hey Michelle you’ll love this!”*  Time after time, I gave my rather lukewarm answer, that yes I thought the video was cool, but that I was rather less…

Spotlight: BENEATH MANHATTAN SKIES by Emma Meade

Happy Tuesday!!!

…better yet, happy almost Turkey Day (no classes!!! (yet I still have assignments…))!

Today, I have the honor of spotlighting a new novella by Emma Meade, whose YA novel, Under the Desert Moon, won me over with its “light and fun read that took a new spin on the vampire/paranormal scene.”

This has to be one of my favorite covers of the year. Seriously, I love the blues and the city backdrop…gorgeous!

Book Blurb

November in New York is cold but full of possibility for college freshman Erin Harris. When her twin brother, Nick, shows up on her doorstep for a surprise visit, Erin is delighted. Unfortunately, Nick’s arrival coincides with the discovery of a body outside her apartment building, a body drained of blood. Right away, Nick assumes vampires are involved. He’s not exactly their biggest fan since Erin dated one in high school.

Juggling nosy roommates, a first date with a gorgeous guy from college and a brother on a Van Helsing kick is enough to keep any nineteen year old girl busy – And then Erin’s old flame walks back into her life.

Is Erin destined to be caught up in supernatural shenanigans, or will she choose a different path?

About the Author

Emma Meade lives in rainy Ireland. She loves vampires, slayers, witches, ghosts, aliens & shadow men (or at least the youngest of the Shadow Men), and regular people who live extraordinary lives (think Slayerettes and you’re on the right track). Books, DVDS & TV show boxsets take up lots of space in her home, and she collects all the Point Horror books she can get her hands on. Writing supernatural stories and watching marathon re-runs of Buffy are some of her favourite ways of escaping reality.

Teaser

“My father wouldn’t be so understanding.” Erin frowned, not liking to think about her dad. “Did she have a boy or girl?” Erin shrugged in apology for not remembering.

“A boy. I feel sorry for my sister. She was surrounded by us growing up.”

“I’m sure it wasn’t that bad. She had a cool big brother.” She groaned inwardly. Why did she have to say that?

Tommy looked at her. Erin thought she saw a hint of a smile hovering around his lips. Where the hell was Sadie with the drinks? That girl was in big trouble for setting this up. A blush rose in Erin’s cheeks. She was grateful for the dim lighting in the bar.

“So, I’m cool, am I?” Tommy said after a moment, smiling easily again.

The tension alleviated and Erin breathed normally. “I thought you might have noticed that. You have a motorcycle. That automatically puts you in the cool club.”

“I’d like to take you out on the bike.”

And the hard-to-breathe thing started again.

Tag, I’m it! Ten Questions from Laura!!!

Laura, a fellow college blogger of Laura + the voices, tagged me in a super fun 10 questions post. You can read her Q&As here!

Laura asked me:

1. Do you think NaNoWriMo works?

Yes. I do. I think NaNoWriMo can be a great push to get people writing also, those pep talks…I use them every time I’m feeling low/uninspired. Some great books have come from NaNoWriMo, CINDER anyone? Also, it promotes something you must have, in my opinion, to be a successful writer and to make this a lifelong career, community! NaNoWriMo builds such a great support system that many who attempt to write the 50,000, even if they don’t “win”, still have those wonderful connections & friends 🙂

2. Have you ever done NaNoWriMo or are you doing it now, and how did it turn out for you?

I did it in 2012 and technically I signed up this year. I’ve never won, and the weird thing is I don’t really care to. I recently read this amazing post by Jessica Spotswood whose Cahill Witch Chronicles is sitting on my physical to-read book shelf right now (as opposed to Goodreads).  I agree with her in that when I do NaNoWriMo I feel so much pressure. The funny thing is that I’m able to complete a MS in 1-3 months. I’m sure there’s some psychological explanation for this, and I’m sure one day I’ll actually complete NaNoWriMo, just not today. However, for those who have never written a book or need a boost, I think NaNoWriMo can really provide that. My first completed MS was something I wrote, on my own, blindly following the story. I didn’t have a support system set in for those highs/lows. With NaNoWriMo, you have that, and it’s wonderful so if you think it’ll help, definitely give it a shot.

3. You are trapped alone in a room for the next year with only one book to read. Which book do you choose?

Mkay. This is a toughie. Haha, have you seen my bookshelves lately (and those are just the two in my dorm). But probably either THE MIST OF AVALON, A HANDMAID’S TALE, BRAVE NEW WORLD, A GAME OF THRONES, NINETEEN MINUTES or some Adult Urban Fantasy book (LOVE UF), or some collection of short stories/fairy tales like GRIMM FAIRY TALES or some world mythology book so that I could have tons of stories to use to help me write, since most of my writing has mythology/fairy tale twists/inspirations.

Interesting that I didn’t pick any YA, huh? Probably because my favorite YAs are series and I would be so mad that I didn’t have the ones after it. However, I wouldn’t mind having HARRY POTTER AND DEATHLY HALLOWS only because while I’ve read Book One, hands down my favorite though I love 5 & 7, over 50,000 times, I feel like I’d love to read and dissect the last book…actually, I might do that one day.

4. Do you prefer e-readers or paper books, and why?

Hardcover all the way, except with my Urban Fantasy books I MUST have paperbacks. Why…because 1. though Kindle’s are amazing and mind is anti-glare, my eyes hurt after looking at a screen all day and after all the writing I do, I need a book. Having a physical book allows me to pull away from “the screen” and sit and cozy up and really enjoy delving into a new world.

5. What is the hardest thing you have ever written?

This research proposal on black queer thought and agenda-making for my PoliSci class. Haha, okay, not exactly (almost). Um, the books I’m writing now. THE ARTIFACT COLLECTOR (MG Adventure) & AS BLACK AS NIGHT (YA Snow White Sci-Fi Retelling).

The MG one is hard because it features a mish-mash of world mythologies. I’m really pushing myself to step outside the typical Greek, Roman, Norse, and even Egyptian (love of my life), though those will be included, it’s also going to include artifacts and creatures I’ve made up and that come from other, non Western, cultures.

The YA one because it’s a Sci-Fi Snow White Retelling and that in itself is challenging. The world has to be spot on, the romance, which is central, needs to be believable even though it happens within a short time period, and I’m also pushing myself to dig deeper than just settling with a Dystopian world, which comes easy to me so in a sense I feel like that’s a cop out, to a world that just is (if that makes any sense). Basically yes, some worlds are dystopian but sometimes people are okay with their messed up worlds, I want the focus to be less on changing the world and more on the two MCs and their life and struggles. Also, I want it to be a standalone so there’s that.

6. What is your favorite book (or books) from childhood?

JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, CORALINE (okay, I’m reading now for the first time but I really feel like child Patrice would’ve loved it), THE LION, THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE, THE VAMPIRE CHRONICLES by Anne Rice (yes, I’m serious…I was lik 11-12), UGLIES Series, HARRY POTTER Series, PERCY JACKSON Series,  ARTEMIS FOWL, YORUBA GIRL DANCING, A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS, SPIDERWICK CHRONICLES (& everything Holly Black…such a fangirl), and TILL WE HAVE FACES.

7. What book has had the most profound impact on your writing?

Interestingly enough, probably DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE, A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS, Harry Potter & Percy Jackson & Octavia Butler’s books. I feel like my writing sometimes has the descriptive air (or at least I want it to) of Laini Taylor’s writing. My narrator often becomes borderline a character like Lemony Snicket, he’s hands down one of my favorite authors (heard him speak at Boston Book Fest last year…died (of laughter)). Usually when that happens I tone it down a bit in later revisions because I’m really trying to form my own voice/narrative style.

As for the last three, the more influenced the type of stories I write. I LOVE Octavia Butler (started with WILD SEED). I think that’s why I write so much Science Fiction/Fantasy that also features diverse characters and non-western worlds. Same with Harry Potter, and Percy Jackson, I write a ton of Contemporary Fantasies. I also LOVE mythology, that came before I read PJ but I’ll never forget being in middle school and having Rick Riordan speak at my school. I wasn’t a fan of the series yet, but I sure was after that.

I don’t think there’s anything wrong in mimicking other writers and taking from them. Only then can you find and create your own voice. It takes practice and lots of writing, but you will see the change. Like with the MSs I’m working on now, OMG, I can totally tell that my writing is so much better. I read an old draft of something I wrote just over a year ago and yuck (ew). You just have to keep at it.

8. Do you have a favorite genre to read? 

Oh, no. I don’t like to limit myself like that. I was just thinking the other day that if I were to become a literary agent, I’d be that agent who got all the SFF queries yet was really just craving a good Contemporary. I love it all. What I most want to read are unique stories. Yes, everything is recycled but make it so good that I can’t tell. DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE, ASH (Malinda Lo), CORALINE, ACROSS THE UNIVERSE…PREP SCHOOL CONFIDENTIAL and PROXY are great examples of books I love. In the case of PSC, there are tons of books on the market about girls in boarding schools with dark elements but add a protagonist like Anne Downing and well, I’m sold. PROXY, it’s a Dystopian but the world…corporations in control, protagonists you love to hate…yep, this PoliSci girl is in love.

9. Do you have a favorite genre to write? Is this the same or different from your favorite genre to read, and why?

I mostly write speculative fiction. I think every one of my stories could become a Contemporary since they’re mostly Contemporary Fantasies and in the case of Science Fiction technically that is Contemp., it’s just not our present. I love other worlds, also, when I was a child, these books saved me. I like presenting tough issues but I can’t do that in a straight up Contemp. background, it would be morbid. For me, putting it against a SFF backdrop is perfect. It becomes a grand metaphor, children can love when they’re young and when they’re older. That’s what some of my favorite SFF is to me. That’s what I want to give to the world, great stories of ordinary people put in extreme situations in the middle of freaking awesome worlds.

10. And lastly, a fun question…You can choose one of the Deathly Hallows. Do you choose the Elder Wand, the Invisibility Cloak, or the Resurrection Stone?

Invisibility Cloak. Some days I purposely try to avoid people, not because I don’t like people but 1. Wellesley is a small campus – 2,500-3,000 students and 2. A lotna of people know me from the various activities I do/have done so I often have to stay in my room and put my phone face-down in order to get any work done. Also, I’m a huge people watcher and I LOVE sitting on Sev Green (big hill, center of campus) and watching people, sometimes that gets a little weird so an Invisibility Cloak would definitely help.

Thanks so much for your wonderful questions, Laura!!! I’m posting this now but between today and tomorrow, I’ll add my ten questions and contact the people I want to tag 🙂

–Also, I’d love to hear your answers, readers, to one or more of these questions!–

Whimsically Yours,

PnC
