Summer Author Promo Blitz - Guest Post with Author Alexia Purdy and a GIVEAWAY!

Working on A Dark Faerie Tale series

I've been asked what series is my baby, my one true love and why. It’s hard to pick, but if I had to pick, it would be ‘A Dark Faerie Tale Series’ about a girl named Shade who falls into a world that exists right alongside ours full of magic, faeries and treachery. Come to find she’s half faery herself and is destined to be the one to save the Seelie realm of Faeries from the treacherous Unseelie Queen Aveta.

How’s that for pressure? Shade is a complicated character and she evolves from a vulnerable teen who knows nothing of magic, weaponry or even how to deal with the dangers of the outdoors, to a confident wielder of rare magic and a true Queen in and of herself who rules grace and acquires many loyal followers.

I wanted a character to be vulnerable and change throughout the series instead of starting with a confident girl who really doesn't evolve much at all. I felt it was more authentic and the way she hardens, yet stays true to herself, becomes more evident throughout each story.

Writing this series has been an emotional ride to me. I did have to do some research on Faeries, their culture and legends and also create an entire world all in my head and convey that onto paper. It’s been one the most difficult tasks I've ever taken on, but well worth it in the end when I see readers pick up the series and come back with their imaginations running away with them after immersing themselves in the world of Faerie.

The world of a Dark Faerie Tale Series takes a reader into a realm of fantasy that sweeps them away and truly never lets you go. Give it a try!

Excerpt from ‘A Dark Faerie Tale Series Omnibus: Ever Shade (A Dark Faerie Tale Series #1)’

She pressed her lips together, shaking her head. It was useless to talk to Dylan; the walls he built around himself were too thick. She could almost feel them pressing up against her, palpable and frigid.
“Why don’t you just go away?” Shade hissed at him, irritated. She began scooting away when he grabbed the sleeve of her hoodie. Looking up, she expected an angry glare but found an ocean of pain floating behind his eyes.
His mouth tensed with unexpected emotions, making her consider the seriousness of the situation. “I would, but I can’t. Like a cord between us, it binds me to you. Where you go, I must then follow. If you go too far, I am compelled to search for you until I find you. If I try to run, I would freeze in my own steps and be made to turn back. I’m anything but free. I’m your slave. I intend to see this to its finality and end it.” He snickered then and let her go. “’til death do us part, Shade.” He ripped off a bite of his jerky and chewed without looking back at her.

  1. Love Alexia and her Dark Faerie Tale Series, and her other books as well. She grips you, keeps your attention and gets in the way of house cleaning etc, but I still love her <3
