Super Powers? Um…nope L Guest Blog By Alexia Purdy

So you think you can do it all? I know a lot of people who do and try their very best to slave-drive themselves to the ground until they collapse.  Well lately I have been faced with a lot more on my plate than I can handle and have sadly discovered, I’m falling behind! How did this happen? I am pretty much a procrastinator at heart anyway but to fall this behind that there is no hope to catch up, I think I might just stuff my head in the sand and pray it all goes away! BUT, I am also a driven person, so this is just another challenge for me too!

Like most people, I wear many hats. Yes I have the mom hat that has subcategories such as ‘slave’, ‘housekeeper’, ‘boo-boo healer’, ‘cook’ and then some. On the other hand, I am also a nurse, book reviewer and writer. I have no time. It’s all used up in the many avenues I have chosen to do. It’s okay though. I love every second of it. Thought it tests me in every way: mentally, physically and emotionally, I wouldn’t change it for anything. 

My point being and this is just a reinforcement of an awesome snippet of advice for anyone: it’s okay to not do everything and be superwoman. It’s exhausting to keep up and it ends in disappointment many times and frustration. I think it’s time to slow down. Not sure how but I might slow down on book reviews, less social media and enjoy my free time as much as possible. It’s okay. It will help me stay sane to continue this amazing and crazy journey that I have gotten to experience through writing stories. Sometimes it’s time to submerge back into life in other ways. Don’t forget to take care of yourself! It can only help.

Superwoman? I don’t quite think so, but it’s a super life indeed. J

The Serenity of the Land of Faerie is threatened as the Unseelie Queen Aveta rages war against the three remaining Seelie Realms of Faerie. As Shade's powers grow, she finds she is running out of time to keep the war from spilling into the human world. Winter is growing in strength as the evil Queen's horrifying legions scar the land in their frigid wake. No one is safe. Shade becomes enemy number one for the Unseelie legions. Questioning her true role of power, Shade discovers the cost of winning may come at a much higher price than she ever imagined.
About the Author:
I live in Las Vegas, Nevada- Sin City!!! I love to spend every free moment writing, or playing with my four rambunctious kids.  Working as an RN currently to fund my dream career of writing.  I devour books daily, especially paranormal fantasies and find genre books and independantly published books to be irresistible.  I've has been writing since I can remember (probably since the age of 6) and love creating paranormal urban fantasy and poetry. 
I review books too and highly support all authors. I also enjoy watching movies, dancing, singing loudly in the car and Italian food (yum). 
Excerpt 1:
"Look!" Soap yelled out as he pulled Shade out of her reverie. She followed to where he was pointing. Her eyes widened as she stared at the scene opening before them. Molten lava was now spewing from cracks splitting the ground and spreading across the earth atop the slope.
"What's going on?" Shade called out in surprise, wiping the last of her tears away. "Where's that coming from?" It was Shade's turn to grip onto Soap's arm, her eyes wide with fear. Her hands shook as she glanced at the other warriors, waiting for them to decide what to do or where to go.
