Spring Forward Blog Hop

It may be spring for you – finally – but for me it’s still winter.

My name is Katelina and I am the main character in Joleene Naylor’s Amaranthine vampire series. Joleene had this really boring post planned about celebrating her newest book, Heart of the Raven, and blathering on about the parallels of springtime renewal and her new book covers… trust me, it was dreadful. Who wants to read that kind of crap? So I stepped in to save all of us.

You’re welcome.

Since this is a Hop sponsored by Gliterary Girl Media Group, who happens to be giving away not only gift certificates for their lovely graphic services, but also a fantastic makeup basket, I thought I’d take a moment to get girly. Following after my vampire lover, fighting monsters, hiding out in dark cellars and occasionally becoming a mobile snack can really take it out of a girl, and doesn’t leave a lot of time for pampering. But, there’s one cosmetic I have to have, and that’s my nail polish. Something about that sharp, chemical smell just makes all the weirdness in the world – the blood, fire, and nightmares – fade away and as I paint the bright colors over each nail, it’s like I am painting over all the horribleness with a shiny new coat of promise.

I want to share that joy with one lucky commenter! And since I’ve been painting my nails for five books now, we’re giving away not one bottle, but five in what my author likes to call “Amaranthine colors”.


Leave a comment below with either your email address or a facebook profile link (that accepts messages) to be eligible to win the nail polish grab bag. Winner will be chosen on or around April 7th and notified by mail or FB message. They will then need to provide a mailing address that we can send their prize to.

If you’d like to know more about the Amaranthine books, check out the links in the banner above this post where you can read sample chapters, watch book trailers and more. You can even read the mini prologues for the latest book.

Please be sure to stop by the Gliterary Girl blog and to also check out the other participating blogs in this hop (by clicking the linky link below next to the adorable little frog) for your chance to win other great prizes!

Thanks for stopping in and have a great spring! (Meanwhile, I’ll keep muddling through vampire winter!)
