New Blog Design!

I have a new blog design thanks to the very talented Daisy Mae - step up and take a bow! It looks wonderful, thank you!

She also designed a header to match for my website, so please go look (www.samanthawinston.com) It is too fun - I love the look - very Newspaper 1930's, Clark Kent mild mannered reporter and all that!

I think my book 'Merlin's Song' is due out today at Ellora's cave - I'll post an announcement tomorrow if it is. I have to say I LOVE this book - it's Hot, it's Fun, it's gor Great characters. I dare anyone not to fall in love with Merlin, and I think Kyla is one of my most interesting heroines after Gladys Hawke (My favorite - is it possible to have a favorite heroine?)
I think (because I'm rambling here) that my three favorite heroines are:
Gladys Hawke
Ashley
Kyla
And my three favorite heros are:
Iskander
Merlin
Tagor the Pirate
But it's so hard to choose because they're all my babies! (wail!)
Authors, do you have favorite characters?
Readers, are there characters you just can't bear to say goodbye to?
Does everyone think Gladys desreves to be number one?
:-)


PS:
I just looked and it's THERE!!!
MERLIN'S SONG is at Ellora's Cave!!!

Let me know if you fell in love with Merlin and thought Kyla was a great Heroine!!
And Thank you!!!!

There was a little girl who had a little curl -- love the new header and the new look of the site. Merlin's book sounds delightful. Congratulations.

I absolutely love this new look. The pic of you in the header really made this template gel. We make a fab team!

Wow! That's just fantastic. And it suits your genre so well. A very compelling design...

I love it!! I'd love to get mine all redesigned one of these days. Sigh.

I saw that Merlin was released yesterday, I can't wait to get it!

I do have some favorite heroes/heroines...Gruffydd and Isabelle from The Black Dragon; Julin and Cecelia from Blood Will Tell (not released)...I think Cynwrig from Prince of Death was a really good hero but I didn't do him justice.

I like them all, but yeah, a few of them really stick in my head.

Oh, wow, Sam! I love, love LOVE the snappy new blog and website design. Just sensational and so YOU! :-D

As for favorite characters, it seems that it's always the ones in whatever manuscript I'm currently working on, or that I've just finished.

I'm writing the last couple chapters of a romantic comedy fantasy right now and LOVE the characters (one of them's a nymph). I'll hate to say goodbye to them when it's over. But since it's the first book in a series I can revisit them. :-)

Big congrats on the release of Merlin's Song! Sounds like a wonderful story.

Thanks for all the compliments - they go to Oopsy Daisy!

I keep coming back to look at it, lol.

Congrats on the new release!

Cool design.

My favourite characters? Well, in a way I love them all, sometimes even the baddies, but my top favourites would be Roderic de Sinclaire (Kings and Rebels), Talorcan mac Ferac (Caledonia Defiant) and Arminius (A Land Unconquered).
