Feeling chatty?

Welcome to my blog! Pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and read what's on my mind. I've a vicious sense of humor, an apprecation for romance and a mad addiction to writing.

Happy New Year! Contest Winners & A Super Spicy Trailer to Start it out Right!

Happy New Year to You and Yours!

2010 was a year unlike any other. I celebrated three book releases but more importantly, I made new friends. Friends that I’m quite sure I’ll know for many, many years to come. Friends who are dear to me already. You know who you are.

I’d also like to recognize that in 2010 friendships from the past were only made stronger. As some know, I’ve been dealing with an illness in my family since September. My friends (new and old) have been a rock in my life and hosting this blog has kept my head above water. It’s amazing how simple human contact—even via blog—can make a world of difference. It will go down as the year in which I connected with everyone out there who truly matters. Thank you.

I’d also like to say a very heartfelt, “Thank You,” to my blog followers. Many of whom I consider friends simply by getting to know you better here at A Writer’s Mind. That you took the time to pop in and join my guests and I was so appreciated. Did we have an absolute blast in 2010 or what?! You have inspired me to make blogging a regular practice. And that, for a writer, is a gift.

So what do you say… are we ready to toast in 2011? It’s bound to be a year full of surprises. I feel it’s going to be a good year. One we all deserve. I’d say the best way to get started is to announce a few contest winners!!! (I know, I know, I’m so predictable *smiles*) But really, would I start out the New Year any other way?

As you know, I had two contests running this past week. One here at A Writer’s Mind, the other at the Roses of Houston blog. The winners have been drawn. Kristen, you won an Ecopy of Heart of Vesuvius and Carol, a $25 gift certificate to Amazon. Congratulations Ladies! Please contact me at Skypurington@live.com to collect your prize.

As you might have guessed, there’s to be a bit of a pause in the blog events here. Throughout the month of January I intend to focus on family and writing. I have a few blog appearances scheduled throughout the month to celebrate my release. All of which I’ll share with you.

Stay tuned though, my ‘Celts and More Blog Event’ launches February 7th. This time it’s all about the romance authors who not only write Celtic stories but those from other genres. Much like me! So be sure to mark it down now. Great line-up planned!

As a fun leave-off to this post, I recently created a book trailer for Heart of Vesuvius. Speakers up. There’s music. Kinda spooky but…we are dealing with vamps.



Enjoy the start of a Great New Year! WTG 2011!

I loved the blog events you've had here this past year. That's what sets your blog apart. You are always recognizing Authors.artists and special causes and bring them to our attention. You did an excellent job on the trailer. The music was perfect. May the New Year bring us all Peace, Joy, Health and Happiness.
