Ten Days of Giveaways: Day Six

To celebrate the release of the fourth book in the Amaranthine series I am hosting ten days of giveaways on this blog! Each day from, May 22 – 31, I will post a tiny excerpt of the fourth book and a prize. To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment with your email address on the blog and you will be automatically entered to win the prize being given away in that blog post! (yes, that means to enter for all ten prizes you have to comment on each of the ten blogs.) If you’re not comfortable leaving your address in a comment, please email it to m at Joleene (at) JoleeneNaylor.com and be sure to let me know which blog you’re entering for.  Random.org will pick the winners on June 4th. I will contact the winners for your mailing address and send the prizes shortly after.


Day Six:

[Micah said] “Oh fuck, not another speech about the virtues of your Executioner buddy! I’m startin’ to agree with Jorick about that shit. If you think that those two haven’t killed humans then you’re living in a dream world.”

In her mind’s eye Katelina saw Jorick at the institute, holding the dead cop. “That’s different! It was self defense.”

Micah cocked an eyebrow. “Right. Puny humans pose a real threat. Look, we needed blood. I don’t know if you’ve hung out with hungry vampires before, but let me tell ya’ how it works. First you get hungry, then that turns into this gnawin’ pain in your gut. Ya keep waitin’ and it starts to hurt elsewhere; your fingers, your toes, then your hands, your feet – you get the picture? The longer it goes, the worse it gets. Pretty soon it’s like those castaway cartoons where your buddies start to look like a big slab of ham.  And since we’re traveling with a big slab of ham, it’s to your advantage we feed on someone else, get it?”


Two lucky winners will each get one (1) “Got Blood?” T-shirt Transfer. 

Put it on a t-shirt, a tote bag, a jacket – anything you want! All you need is an iron and an imagination. Directions are included.

Good luck and thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check back tomorrow for another fun giveaway, and if you haven’t yet, be sure to check out the other Ten Days of Giveaways blogs!

If you were a vampire, who or what would you drink from? (I’ll share the most interesting answers(s) on facebook.)

    oh! love this graphic 🙂 I would drink from people if I didn’t have to kill them to do it. If I had to kill…then I would go after the bad guys, and people who go slow in the fast lane 😉

  2. I love Micah. He’s a pretty good guy, really. He has an attitude and that’s why he survives.

    Id only drink from humans for sexual pleasure and if it was life or death for me otherwise I would drink animal blood.

    ANYTHING!!!!!! Love Micah, he is one of my favorites. Big softie (on the inside, at least).

  5. Marta Kotzke

    From my hubby. I think it would be intensely intimate and sensual to share that with him.

    I would most definately use a crazy glass withn a built in silly straw. Because as a vampire I would be a fun loving one. Trying to be the exact opposite of how they are supposed to be. It would be all about the ride through time and what fun you could have.

  7. Love the way this t-shirt transfer came out, Jo! 🙂

    I’m not even going to pretend that I would drink from animals. I drives me batty when I get cat hair on my food. I couldn’t imagine sucking my meal through a furry filter. 🙂 I have to say, I’d pick on humans that have dismissed me, JUST because I’m a woman. As a human, I find it insulting. It’s 2012 people! As a vampire, I would TOTALLY use this to my advantage.

    Example from work today:
    “I have some questions. Can you get somebody to help me?”
    “Sure,” I say. *Flashes huge smile.* “I’d be happy to help you. What would you like to know?”
    “Oh… Don’t you have a guy around here? I’m sure I saw a guy.”
    And…the world spins backwards on its axis.

    (My day job doesn’t involve ANYTHING that would be embarrassing to talk to the opposite sex about. This person simply assumed that my ovaries would somehow interfere with my answers. Funny, they didn’t!) As a vampire, If I ONLY picked victims that made assumptions about me, based on my gender, I don’t think I’d EVER go hungry. Sad, but true!


    • Wow, really?!? Yeah, he sounds like a good candidate, too! I live such a sheltered life I am so… shocked for lack or a better word, at the sudden backwards leap the rest of the country seems to have taken all of a sudden!

     /  May 28, 2012

    I would drink from humons as long as I don’t have to kill them crystaley73 at yahoo dot com

  9. jennifer gruenberg

     /  May 28, 2012

    I would go for what ever is tastiest unless i have to kill then i will go for really bad guys. syndiasia@yahoo.com

  10. Shaylynn Gruenberg

     /  May 31, 2012

    Well I would probably just eat extra rare steak since I eat steak anyways.I don’t think I could handle killing something and then eating it.Just to much blood and hands on for me.

      So your ok as long as someone else does the killing.
