Curious what will be under your tree this Christmas? My yuletide-ilishous blog event will keep you hovering on the edge of your tree skirt!
I hope everyone enjoyed a lovely Thanksgiving. I can’t believe it’s already ‘black’ Friday. The busiest shopping day of the year! Trying to stay ahead of the crowd I got all my Christmas shopping done at the start of this week. I know…wow! What can I say, I had the opportunity and seized it. Typically I’m the sort that waits until a few days before Christmas. Can you even imagine? If not, good, because it’s crazy nuts at most stores by that time.
The way I looked at it though…this year, rather than focusing my attention on battling the holiday crowds I'd prefer to direct my energy on decorating my house, writing away and of course, giving you all a slammin’ good festive time at this blog.
So what have I got in store? Well, what every woman wants under her Christmas tree! Think top notch romance authors dishing out about Christmas is their neck of the woods and within their novels. Think Jewelry artisans sharing all about their holiday season. Think prizes galore!!! Yep, at this blog through the Christmas season you’re going to meet some fantastic people and have the opportunity to win some great stuff.
As you’ll clearly see, I’ve invited authors whom cover the topics I like best. Everything Paranormal, Scottish Highlanders, Ireland, just a dash of Erotica and hand-crafted, just-as-I-envision-it custom made Jewelry. The perfect recipe for what every gal would want beneath her Christmas tree, I’d say. Fresh and first-time, these are in-depth interviews that allow you a little glimpse inside the world of some of romances most fan-tabulous authors and an awe-inspiring jewelry artist at Christmastime.
So whip out your cell phone and mark “Gotta pop into A Writer’s Mind” on your calendar November 29th through December 25th! Regular calendar hanging on your wall? Be sure to pen it in! I’ve such a great line-up expected and wouldn’t want you to miss it.

Award-winning New Hampshire native, Sky Purington writes a cross genre of paranormal/fantasy romance heavily influenced by history. From Irish Druids to Scottish Highlanders many of her novels possess strong Celtic elements. More recently, her vampire stories take the reader to medieval England and ancient Italy. Make no mistake, in each and every tale told you'll travel back to another time and revisit the romanticism history holds at its heart. Sky welcomes feedback from readers and can be contacted at Sky@SkyPurington.com.
Contest winners are selected by me using the random generator shown below. Each commenter who follows the rules given each week-whether it's to answer a question or simply comment-is assigned a number according to when they left their comment. For example: Jane comments first, then Sue, then Maria. Jane becomes #1, Sue #2, Maria #3. If the contest requires an answer to be left and Jane and Maria answer it, Sue does not, then Jane and Maria have entered the contest. Therefore, Jane is #1 and Maria is #2. Make sense? All numbers are then entered into the Random Generator. The number selected is therefore the winner. Make no mistake, I welcome those of you who choose not to enter the contest. Kind comments are always well received by visiting authors! Thanks so much. ~Sky
