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.

Want to win some free book? (A TISKET A TASKET PUT ROMANCE IN YOUR BASKET contest)

Thanks for popping in all! Today I'm hosting the A TISKET A TASKET, PUT ROMANCE IN YOUR BASKET contest that's been spring cleaning it's way through cyberspace.

Oh yes…spring has certainly sprung, hasn't it? When I saw the first green sprout a few weeks ago I definitely did the “happy dance.” Today, both the white and yellow tulips were basking in the sun, bright and cheery as ever. Let me tell you, it’s about time. Living in New Hampshire, we were privy to what is now called the infamous “Ice Storm of 2008.” I think the title speaks for itself. And that just started off our winter up here!

To say I’m spring cleaning is a massive understatement. Every curtain has been washed, every tile scrubbed and all those warm fuzzy sweaters, boxed for next winter. Okay, maybe I kept one out…we've seen snow in May after all! (Knocks on wood)

So… rubs hand together in anticipation… I need to clean a little bit more. Frankly, I’ve a few books to clear out before my next book signing scheduled for the beginning of July. In fact, I have three print books and one digital download to give away. (Yep, spring cleaning my computer is on my agenda as well, winks.)

Curious what I’m up to? Well, it includes two missions for you depending on what you want to win. The first prize is a digital copy of Highland Muse. To win this you need to head to my website http://www.skypurington.com/ and click on "Works in Progress." Once there, find out what the hero in The Victorian's Lure does for a living. Return to this blog and tell me the answer in a comment.

To win the second prize, including Song of the Muses: Book 1, Fate's Monolith and Destiny's Denial, all in PRINT, requires little effort...just a good read over of the blurb and excerpt for my upcoming release, Darkest Memory. You'll find this information at http://www.skypurington.com/ on my Home Page.

All right, here’s what you need to answer to win three books in PRINT. After obtaining the answers to the following questions, return to this blog and leave them in a comment. First question…What bizarre things start happening to Calah Arlington after she meets Gabriel Knight? Next question…who is painting a picture of Calah Arlington? Last but not least…How does Gabriel want Calah positioned for the painting?
Okay, after ALL that, there is ONE more prize to be won from me and that is yet another copy of Song of the Muses: Book 1 in print which will be part of the grand prize. You will be searching for the above egg. Just visit my website, locate the 4 eggs, make a list of their locations by pasting the urls to the website pages in an e-mail, then send the entry to Happyendings2007@aol.com by midnight CST on March 1st, 2009. The winner will be randomly drawn and announced March 2nd at http://blog.skhyemoncrief.com/.

Well, it’s time to throw on some sunglasses and lather on some suntan lotion because spring time is heating up in New England this weekend. I had a blast hosting the contest today and guarantee you’ll all have a super time tomorrow at the next stop in the A TISKET A TASKET, PUT ROMANCE IN YOUR BASKET contest event when you pop over to Tabitha Shay’s site at http://www.tabithashay.com/

Have a super weekend everyone!

Hello Sky
Love the cheery tulips on your Blogpost.

Well, I think we had our summer this week. it's been beautiful and robbed me of my time when I should have been writing - after all, it's hard to be stuck indoors when the weather's so perfect for gardening - and it's so changeable here in the UK. Today we've had rain and there's a distinct nip in the air - but look, there's a patch of blue sky, it may clear up. but certainly to damp and chilly to take my laptop outside! Ah well.

Enjoyed your stage of the 'Scavenger Hunt' Sky and whoever wins your books is definitely in for a wonderfully enjoyable read. Enjoy the sun over the weekend and make sure you put plenty of that sunblock on!

Great fun and fantastic excerpt!!
1. She hears him speak when his lips dont' move. She easily forgets her own actions.
2. Alex
3. Sitting in a wing-back chair near the fire, legs un-crossed and kept together gazing towards fire. One hand on chair's armrest nearest fire with other hand laid on top of first hand with head turned toward fire. An expression of unleashed passion caught within a mask of confusion and whimsy.

Hi Sky, we're having a great weekend, like summer and cooked out.

Glad to find your site, I love medievals and also that WIP, with the ghost/hunter pyschic hero. Anything like that always gets me looking.

I like this excerpt, paranormal and vamp fan,too. Will have to put these all on my wishlist.

Calah hears Gabriel speak without his lips moving, feels his touch even though he's not.

Alex is painting the picture.

Gabriel wants her legs uncrossed, together, with her gazing toward the fire, with hand on chair armrest, other hand on top.

Have a great Sunday!
