Stay tuned in September. I'm relaunching my series AND I'll be welcoming back authors to A Writer's Mind.
Watch out, fellow bloggers, readers, good friends and new visitors, Andrea from The Write Life and I will be soon be putting our heads together. We intend to rock the blogging world. Will we lose our individual sites? Absolutely not. We just might be doing a little something extra. *Smiles* Nothing's cut in stone, but we're hoping. Corrina might even be involved. I can't say yet it's so top secret!
I'd like to once more thank everyone so much for their well wishes in regards to my recent loss. You have no idea how much your words have meant. It hasn't been easy but I'm taking it one day at a time and focusing on my stories. In an odd way, they're helping me through this difficult time.
I’ve been working hard to edit and tighten my MacLomain Series for its relaunch. My Dad would’ve expected nothing less. When he first went into the hospital nearly two months ago, my cover artist had just completed the cover for Sylvan Mist.
I know what Dad would be saying now. “Show it off!”
So here it is.
A huge thank you to my cover artist, Tamra Westberry for yet another display of pure talent and of course, Jimmy Thomas for looking so bloody gorgeous
For those of you whom follow this blog, I had a full itinerary lined up, September through the end of the year, including my ‘What Every Woman Wants Beneath Her Christmas Tree Event’.
I intend to honor all scheduled visits.
I had a few very talented authors scheduled to appear when Dad first went into the hospital. If I can swing it, I hope to fit them in on weekends through the fall.
Authors and readers alike are very important to me. This blog’s very important to me. I don’t intend to let anyone down if I can help it.
If you’re popping into A Writer’s Mind for the first time, I apologize for such an intense post.
I would like to thank everyone who sent prayers my Dad’s way during the past several weeks. It has been the most difficult time in my life and everyone who sent their thoughts were much appreciated. Even those whom didn’t comment but took the time to send a prayer.
Regrettably, my Dad passed away last Friday at age 67. He was one of my best friends and life will not be the same without him. Because he was my biggest supporter and so proud of my writing, I sat down tonight and started to work again. It’s not easy but I’m taking it one word at a time. He’d expect nothing less.
Dad was a navy man then worked for TWA for thirty years. He was with my mom for forty years and was the guy who would do anything for anyone.
I love you and will miss you more than you know, Dad. May you forever fly with the Angels.

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.

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
