MRP would like to extend a very warm welcome to Sky Purington, author of Vow of the Highlander. Sky, to begin, can you tell us what inspired you to become a writer?
I’d have to say winning the Young Author’s award in elementary school first kicked off my interest in writing. Granted, quite a few years went by before I pursued a career as an author but the love was always there.

If you were to be left alone on an island, what three books would you take with you?
Probably any three by Christine Feehan.

What are your most and least favorite movie genres?
I love anything historical, fantasy, paranormal or romantic. I steer clear of Westerns.

If you could choose any man for your next book cover, who would he be?
Oh, probably Chris Hemsworth. He’d make a smokin’ hot highlander!

When you are on a deadline, what aspect of your ‘regular’ life suffers most?
Sleeping. *grins*

What advice would you give aspiring authors?
Never give up! Chances are you’ll get a rejection letter or two. Set it aside and send out more queries.

What advice would you give seasoned writers?
Almost the same advice I’d give an aspiring writer. We all know this business can at times be difficult. Take a breather if you need to but then keep on writing. Don’t give up.

When reading for pleasure, do you prefer a physical or electronic book?
Nowadays I’m all about electronic books mainly because of the convenience. In fact, I mostly read via my cell phone.

From the first stroke of a pen (or laptop), how long did it take you get published?
Because I had a baby, a few years went by between starting my first novel and becoming published. I started my MacLomain Series in December of 2004 and published it in May of 2007.

Did you ever feel like calling it quits?
Yup! But I never did.

What did you do when you got your first contract?
Totally celebrated! What an amazing day. J
Thanks so much for hosting me!
Thank you so much for joining us today, Sky. We really enjoyed the visit. Good luck and great sales with Vow of the Highlander
