Yay, got another computer right away.

-E-E7-A-Am-E. Or- C-C7-F-Fm-C.

I'm not sure I understand the question - who's we, and what do y'all mean by "circle of fifths"? The only usages of the term that I've encountered are the ones I've already mentioned on this thread: a VI II V I chord progression, or a specific diagram that many people (not me) find useful in understanding relationships between notes and between chords. Neither of these meanings has any relation to the chord progression you supplied that I can see - except that the E7 is followed by an A and the C7 is followed by an F (both are examples of a dominant seventh chord being followed by the chord a fourth above, as is normal.)

As for "turnaround", I once heard Rick Fielding call the V7 chord a "turnaround chord" (i.e., the A7 chord when playing in D), but I think the more common use of calling a lick a turnaround is its place in the song structure - just like a bridge, or verse, or chorus. So any progression can be a turnaround.
