Roxanne Daniels was supposed to be spending her summer getting ready to head off to Julliard. That was the plan. But that was before—

Before she knew what heart shattering pain felt like.

how time flies, damn you world and your need to spin



Wow, how time flies when you are sick. The month of March and I did not get along. Which is actually sad, because it was my birthday month.  Granted there were some moments, and a few days of happiness. Most of March I was sick. Blah. Not even the good kind of sick. You know the kind where you have a cough, go to the doctor, get meds, and then get better kind of sick. Nope. I’m talking about the painful, horrible disabling kind. That a month later is still in full swing hatred of me. Yep I’m talking about the Multiple Sclerosis flare up kind of sick.  Suck it MS you suck. Well that is why I have been mia. But I refuse to let my disease stop me from reaching my goals. I may have been benched for a while, but I have continued to write. Sadly, most of that writing was drug induced crap that got deleted when I reread it. Side note: warning while under the use of prescription pain pills, one should not shop on-line. My hubby was not too happy about the fiasco. Happy Birthday to me!!!

 Just saying. Learn for my mistakes, it’s a bad idea. :p

But I’m sure what you are all dying to hear about is, WITHOUT YOU. Well I am writing the end. It’s coming along. Even if it’s coming along slowly. But it will be done well before I have to turn it into my editor in July. My numb hands have been a challenging to work with, but I am determined and that is all I need to finish this book. Just know that when you read this book it was written but someone who truly loves her story and could wait to share it with you.  If you ever have any question or want to reach me you can get a hold of me on Facebook or through email.!/ReylynnPurdue

im going to get back to Roxanne and he crazy life now. Have a great rest of the week. Don’t forget to smile. Without You teaser to come next Tuesday!! happy dance!!

I like the way you Tease!!


I am one unhappy girl. Why, you ask. I’m sad to report that I’m sick. Yep, the stupid cold that makes you feel like death. Otherwise known as it less offensive name: the Flu. 😥 has consumed my body. It’s trying to take my mind as well, but have no fear I will battle it to the death. Okay I may have gone a bit over board with the theatrics. Come to think of it maybe the flu already got to my mind? OH…..NO! Does this mean Without You has no of hope of ever being finished…. Dun,dun, du, duuuuuh! Okay, okay I’m just kidding. Well not about the being sick part. Yep that still sucks. But I am still working on Without You every free chance I get. Please understand I have been in a coma of sickness this week. So I’m a bit behind. Not a lot, just a bit. But as I Promised… I have a Teaser for you. Oooh, but that’s not all. Not only will you get this teaser but if you go to my Facebook Author Page, you will find and exclusive teaser. Pretty exciting, right?

Here’s the link:!/ReylynnPurdue


Now without further delay, Your Teaser Pleaser:

Jordan stopped outside my door to check out my photos. He dropped my hand and pointed at one of Brent and me. It was taken on my 18th birthday. I was sitting on Brent’s lap; we had just gotten into a cake fight and were covered in frosting. That picture captured a moment when I was blissfully happy. It hurt to think that just a few months later my whole world would implode, plaguing every memory with the black stamp of before. Before she was gone, before I knew what heartbreaking pain felt like, before I hated the world, before… when life was perfect.

“How do you know him?” he asked. His voice was tight and edged on anger. Was he jealous at seeing me in a photo with another guy? I laughed. “Brent? He has been my Brothers best friend for, like ever. He’s lived with us for years.” I explained.

Jordan stepped away from me and leaned against the wall. He let his head hit it and I wasn’t sure what was going on with him. “What’s wrong?” I asked. He was starting to worry me. He slid down the wall. I kneeled down next to him. “Baby, talk to me.” I begged. Jordan looked at me his eye full of what seemed like regret. What the fuck was going on?

“Out of all the people in the world, you have to be her?” He exhaled.



OOOOOH! I bet you are dying to know what happens next. You will just have to wait for Without You!!

You never forget your first.

You never forget your first; First boyfriend, first kiss, first love, first time, first heartache. Without You, is my first book. Who would have thought a Book could mean so much to a person. Until I started writing one, I sure didn’t. There is something absolutely thrilling about writing a book. OHMEGEE, IM WRITING A BOOK! As thrilling as it is, it’s also terrifying. What if no one likes it? That thought alone has almost stopped this journey so many flippen times. But with the support of my amazing hubby, I’ve stuck with it. Now I’m here, writing this. This is my first blog on Goodreads. If you asked me a year ago if I would ever be writing a blog on Goodreads I would have laughed. With that said, I would like to thank every one of you who have taken interest in Without You. I can’t even express how much it means to me. To show you my gratitude I have included a few teasers. I hope you enjoy them. Have a beautiful rest of the week!

{When he kisses me I don’t stop him. I let him kiss me because I want to feel something, something other than broken. I want to feel anything besides pain. I want to pretend I’m a normal teenage girl running off with a hot guy, on the fourth of July, without a care in the world. I want to be the girl I was before. Before my mom died, and I started faking being okay. I let him kiss me because it feels insanely good, and I almost feel better. I almost feel normal, I almost feel okay. Almost.}

{It’s not like I have some delusional idea that him and I are going to run off into the sunset and live happily ever after. I don’t believe in that happily ever after shit. I know better, it doesn’t exist. People hurt you and betray you. And in the rare chance that you do find real death do you part love. Death fucking does you part. Just ask my dad. Happily ever-after’s are a myth.}

Facebook, WHAT!?!


Without You. Now has a Facebook Page and is on Goodreads. Make sure to check it out. After Without You, gets 100 like I will post a new teaser on the new facebook page. Thanks everyone for your support.!/ReylynnPurdue

So, onto other news, I also wrote a blurb about “my book. Yep, you know that book that you are still waiting to hear the title of.

Isn’t this fun?

I am having a Ball.

Hey did you know, The poison arrow frogs of South and Central America are the most poisonous animals in the world?

Just a random fact, go share it with your friends and warn them to stay far, far away. Personally I can’t stand frogs. They’re slimy and jump and…. Just plain gross.

I guess I have made you wait LOOOOOOOOOONG enough….. The title of “my book” is……….

Drum Roll Please………….


I absolutely love it and I hope you all do too. I went back and forth between a dozen of possible titles. None of them seemed to fit. Then one night this one just popped into my head and I fell in love.

As promised below is a blurb about WITHOUT YOU, ahhh, I loved typing that. Enjoy and have a beautiful day!!!!

Roxanne Daniels life is as close to perfect as it can get. Her loving boyfriend, of the past four years and her two best friends, make life fun, what more could a girl want?   Oh yeah, to attend Julliard and become a Prima-Ballerina. Check! She is headed to New York in the fall. Life doesn’t get any better than this.

 Her outstanding, mother reminds her of these facts after her high school graduation is over, it was once again her mother’s way of side stepping the fact the Roxy’s father wasn’t there. But he’s never there for Roxy, she wasn’t about to let it get to her. Her life is amazing; she didn’t need her father’s love to be happy. She had her mom, and life is perfect. Well, life was perfect. After a graduation party Roxy goes home to find, her perfect life crumble before her.

Just when Roxy thought her life couldn’t possibly get any worse, it does. She walks in on her boyfriend in bed with someone else. Who would have known one person could withstand such heart wrenching pain and survive? Roxy doesn’t want to survive.

But life goes on whether you want it to or not. After weeks of seclusion Roxy starts living again. It’s painful and scary but she has the love of her brother, his best friend and two amazing best friends of her own to help her get back up on her feet.

Then one day she is by herself, and every girl’s night mare is becoming her reality. Roxy request the help of a stranger to get through it. An ungodly beautiful Stranger, This man not only helps Roxy, he completely turns her life upside down and back around. He is everything Roxy know she should stay away from. The last thing she wants is to chance falling in love. Because love doesnt last, she knows that now. She has to protect herself from ever feeling that kind of pain. She knows if her heart gets broken again, she won’t survive it.

way to disappear…

I have been a horrible blogger and I have failed at adding any new post. I hang my head, for I am disappointed in myself. Okay… moving on now. I have been busy writing. Well, that and spending time with my family over the holidays. By the way I hope you all enjoyed your Holidays as much as I did.

Back to the writing part, it’s going well. I am sad to report I am not immune to writes block… oh how it sucks. I have also given myself a deadline of March to finish my book. It’s my birthday month and I want it to be my present to myself. Yikes! It doesn’t seem that far away at all.

To make up for my late of posts and hopefully get everyone interested in “My Book”. I have decided to post teasers. I’ll probably be posting one every two weeks. So, about my book, I keep referring to it as “My Book”, because horrifyingly enough I still cannot decide on a Title. *hangs head in shame*

I am really enjoying writing and I hope everyone enjoys the final product.  Speaking about writing, I would love if you all helped me to name a Character.  Here is his description…

  • Well he’s male.
  • He’s 19.
  • He’s a heartbreaker.
  • He is also hooking up with the main characters best friend.
  • 5’10
  • Brown eyes
  • A dusting of freckles across his nose.

I had originally named him Tony. I hate this name for so many reason I have no clue why I ever gave him this name. The fact that he is Tonya’s boy toy just makes me despise it more. Tony and Tonya, ummm…. I think not. Well, any name idea would be beyond helpful. I’m going to get to posting that teaser I promised. I hope everyone is having an amazing Friday. Have a safe and fun weekend. It’s the last weekend of 2012 ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!!
