Long overdue update…

I don’t usually like posting personal business on my blog, but you all at least need an explanation. The last couple of years have put an emotional toll on me. I’ve gone through two job changes, a move, several family illnesses as well as the recent passing of my godmother. This has severely affected my creative mojo. For those who have recently inquired about the status of any forthcoming books, rest assured, I haven’t forgotten any of you and fully intend to finish what I started. Thank you all for your love and support.

What in the Heck is a Street Team?

That was what I first thought when a reader approached me about starting one. I did some research and asked around my various writing loops. It’s a group of fans and readers who spread the word about your books and distribute promotional items and/or books to local libraries and bookstores. How cool is that?

I’ve decided to jump on this bandwagon. Now, bear with me, because this is kind of new to me and I’m pretty sure there will be a huge learning curve, but I can already tell this will be a fun and rewarding experience for everyone involved. So if anyone’s interested in joining the official Sidney Ayers/Arianna Skye street team, simply fill out the contact form above, using Street Team as the subject.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Hugs,

Sidney

 

Saturday Shoe Blog Winners — and Tiebreaker vote

Hey all! I’ve tallied all the votes and there’s a tie between “Shoe P0rn Saturday” and “Can’t Walk a Mile in These Shoes.

I’ve set up a tiebreaker poll for people to pick between the two. This poll will run until the end of the day on May 15th.



In the meantime, I’ve gone ahead and chosen a winner of the Shoedazzle gift credit. Congrats to Meredeth C. You are the lucky winner!

I also combined the entries from my previous contest for Wings of Desire books, so JA Garland and Kellie Winckler both win an autographed copy of Wings of Desire.

Congrats to everyone!

Blog Update and a Giveaway

I’ve recently discovered I have a huge addiction to shoes. And that’s pretty bad when you’re a starving artist. To help overcome my addiction, I’ve decided to start a regular weekly post  with my recent finds that I love, but might not be exactly able to afford or wear (I don’t fare well in anything over 3.5 inches). I’d also like to expand the feature to include reader’s suggestions via email. If you’ve got a picture of a killer shoe, send it to me at contact@sidneyayers.com.

So I’m asking you, gentle reader, for input.

I’ve started a poll below:

What name sticks with you? Do You have another suggestion, or do you think this is a stupid idea? I mean come on, how many more blogs with scantly clad men  do we need? Not that I don’t mind the occasional eye-candy every so often, but I just don’t want to be any more cliché than I tend to be at times. LOL.

Also, I was thinking I might try to resurrect Fudge Filled Fridays. It seems I’ve developed a chocolate addiction along with the shoe addiction.

Later on, when life gets less hectic, I’m planning on starting a weekly writing feature. Stay tuned for more news on that.

To celebrate my new shoe feature, anyone who leaves a comment below or contacts me with Shoe Blog as the subject will be entered into a contest. One lucky entrant will win a free Dazzle Doll ( a $39.95 value) from shoedazzle.com, my latest obsession when it comes to stylish shoes and fashion.  They have stylists that help pick your personal style selections. PS: They have more than just shoes for sale there. There’s handbags, jewelry, watches, and even lingerie! And men, don’t be shy, maybe your wives or significant others would like a special gift.

The contest will run until Midnight, April 22nd. Good luck everyone!
