I can’t even tell you how excited I am now Syd’s coming back again! And yes, I know–for those of you waiting for the remainder of the Destinies, it’s a small comfort seeing Family Magic return, knowing there’s still a wait ahead for more of your favorite characters. And yet, the light at the end of the tunnel is likely an oncoming drach–which makes me immensely happy 😀

For now, take a gander at the deliciousness you sent me when I asked you what you loved about Syd (please forgive the tears–this is huge for me, as it is for you!).

Comment below for a chance to win some fun, original swag before Syd returns on August 6th! And stay tuned for more–there will be a video each day until Thursday–LAUNCH DAY!–when I will be holding a live Twitter chat from 7-8PM EST. Just use #sydlove and #familymagic to either tell me what you love about Syd and her crazy family or to ask me anything.

For now, enjoy your words and have a fabulous Friday!

  1. We as coven members are just as excited about the relaunch of Family Magic!! I never thought that when I downloaded my free copy, oh so long ago it seems, that I would find a series and author that I simply can’t get enough of!! Best of luck to you in this newest adventure!! #Sydlove, #HayleCoven

    • <3 thank you, Karen! XOXO

  2. Watching your video, I laughed and I cried. Every time you cried, so did I. Can’t wait for Syd’s return and to find out what has been happening in her life lately.

  3. I miss Syd so much. Patti you have created a characters that people love them

  4. Wow thank you for the honor of choosing to share my comment #Family Magic #SydLove
    because you created a place where people can feel connected to something positive, a character worth admiring, a story that affirms and reminds even the best of us, that love, loyalty and doing the right thing still matter. To always hope for more. #FamilyMagic because loving your family like that and protecting them is magic. #Sydlove because to love or be loved that deeply is also magical. Thanks Patti!

  5. Wow… What can I say, I have tears rolling down my face as I watch this vid. So much love for Syd and you…

  6. Love Syd! So glad she’s coming back! Been missing her!

  7. I have read the first of QUAID and am waiting for more.

  8. Cannot wait until the rerelease! Can’t wait to start where I left off. 🙂

  9. Syd’s relaunch, feels like a friend that is near and dear to my heart is returning home. Thank you so much Patti and congratulations!


  10. I read a lot of books usually 3-5 a week. Syd is by far my favorite character of all time! I was so sad when I finished the last book in the series. If I had one wish it would be that the series would go on forever!

    • There are so many more books in Syd’s universe… 😀 <3

  11. OMS. I have waited so long to hear more about Syd. It feels like meeting a long lost sister. I have read all the books up to date and I can’t wait to see what happens with Syd next.

  12. So looking forward to more.

  13. interesting character

  14. I’ve said I before and I will say it again Syd should be made into a TV series it is just that great. I’ve always been a Nora Roberts fan but since Syd I’ve never read another book of hers. My biggest problem is no other story line compares to yours and its something that gets inside of you and you just don’t want to let go. I wish for more Syd and her family books every time I look for another book to read and I read lots lol. Congratulations on a wonderful job well done and above all else Enjoy your success as we have all enjoyed Syd and her family! Xoxo

  15. I just read for a the first time the exert of the book so I have just purchased family magic and will have it read before the next book but I am sure I will love it and let you know and soon as I’m done!

  16. I love this series and can’t wait for it’s return!! Syd deserves to be enjoyed by all!!!

  17. So excited for more Syd! She is. My all time favorite character.

  18. I have felt a little lost without Syd in my life :(. I am ready for her to reappear. So far, nothing else has compared..

  19. Hurry up… I’m missing my Syd fix !!!
