Can anyone advise me on a book or website that details shingon practices? I have of late been pursuing the pureland teachings but cannot connect to this school in anyway, I would like to learn about shingon and see if this is something I do connect with before I give up completely. Thanks.

I hope you find a situation in which you can learn and practice authentic Buddhism. I'm not sure where you are geographically (US? UK? &c); your best approach may be simply to find a teacher you can work with, rather than making the tradition or body of doctrine the primary concern.
Shingon-shu is a proven path and it may be the way for you. Or it may be a Nyingmapa teacher, or Tendai, or... who knows? Finding a learning situation is the main criterion.
I wish you all the best. Persevere!
BUT remember, as Zhiyi (the Chinese founder of Tendai Buddhism)...
