Hi everyone! My name is Samantha…actually, I prefer to be called Red. Who knew that a nickname like that could actually grow on a person. Like Ethan, I’ve never been great with words. That’s where Trista came in. But, I suppose there’s a lot more to my story than what was told. Like my past and skipped over bits. There’s actually a reason for that. You see, Trista and I have a lot in common. No, she didn’t fall in love with a big bad wolf…well, at least I don’t think she did, haha. But, she and I haven’t had it lucky with guys. You know, the one guy that you think will be there for you and create the perfect happy ending. Instead you get hell in a hand basket. I think you know what I’m talking about here. Trista and I were both in an abusive relationship. Josh…you know I still cringe at the sound of his name?…I don’t even know where to begin. You see, when I met Josh, I expected a lot. I expected the world and some fairy tale ending. Instead I got an abusive asshole who tried to kill me. That’s not too far off from Trista either. When sitting down to write this…well, who wants to relive that crap? Not me. Not Trista. She was kind and classy enough to make things choppy and skipped over the details of my last two weeks with Josh. That’s not the point of the story. The real story is Ethan and his brothers. I know what you’re thinking, the book is called Little Red, it’s supposed to be my story. I think at one point it began that way and after a while, if you read closely you’ll see that it’s Ethan’s. Many of us know the fate of Little Red Riding Hood. There are many editions of it. But, the Big Bad Wolf? And…what happens when the Big Bad Wolf isn’t so…bad? It wasn’t hard to tell who the book really belonged to. And, as much as we would have LOVED to have highlighted certain events week-by-week…I’m not giving ANY spoilers ;)…we couldn’t because we wanted to show Ethan’s final change. Ethan never was a Big Bad Wolf to begin with and we wanted to show the world that. None of the Parkers for that matter are bad. More like big teddy bears really. Better not let them see that. 😉 I know there’s a lot of information missing…and probably some lingering questions. Why am I writing this post, you ask? It’s more like rambling really…but, I’m here to make an announcement. Mine and Ethan’s story, doesn’t just stop there. There’s our past and our future. And, not just Ethan and myself, but all of his brothers. You see….the announcement is…Big Bad Seven…book 1.5 in the Believe series. This book will be a mash-up of how the Parkers fell victim to the moon curse and how they changed. It will showcase each brother…yes, ladies, Ian is coming back…to show their true endings. We have to remember…there wasn’t just one Big Bad Wolf, there ware seven. I’m excited to see it all come together. How the boys all changed, how they lived and how they found their true endings. If you loved Little Red, I’m sure you’ll want to add this your “to be read” list. Thank you so much for having me and actually reading this to the end. Just remember…if you go in the woods at night…the Big Bad Wolf might actually get you. 😉
