Read an E-Book Week & a Pre-Order Prize

March 2 -8 is read an ebook week, and in celebration of the impending release of Children of Shadows, all five books in the Amaranthine series (and the Vampire Morsels short stories) are…..


That’s right. Just add the books to your cart and at checkout add the code RW100 to get all six books free. Can’t beat that with a wooden stake. (Or even a steak.)

all covers vs 3

And now for the Pre-Order Chance to Win!

Speaking of the sixth book, Children of Shadows, it is still available for preorder from Barnes & Noble and Apple iBooks. Why would you want to preorder it instead of just waiting until after March 15th to get your copy? Because everyone who sends me a copy of their preorder receipt will be entered for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate from Barnes and Noble. It’s like getting the newest book for free, and then some!

To enter, mail me a copy of your pre-order receipt (or you a screen cap of where you bought it) to joleene (at) JoleeneNaylor (dot) com. How do you do that?

Barnes & Noble:

When you ordered from Barnes and Noble you should have received an email message saying that you ordered it. Fwd this to my Joleene (at) and DELETE any person information you don’t want me to have. Did you delete the mail? No worries. Got to and follow the directions for Apple.

Apple iBooks:

Here are directions from Apple on how to access your purchase history – – once you’re there, take a screen cap using the Print Screen (prnt Scrn) button on your keyboard. Open Paintbrush and choose Paste. You can then use a paintbrush or a box took to black out anything you don;t want me to see. Attach the image to an email and send it to Joleene (at) with the subject “Book Preorder”

If you have trouble with either option, drop me a message at the above email address or on Facebook – – and I’ll do my best to help you.

Can’t afford to preorder but want a chance to win? Send me the link to tweets or Facebook post sharing this blog post, and you’ll automatically have one entry. Even if you pre-ordered, you can use this to get extra entries, meaning people can have more than one entry in the contest.

Terms and Conditions: Void where prohibited. This contest is not sponsored by Apple, Facebook, or Barnes & Noble. Winner will be chosen by on March 15th. The more times you enter, the greater your odds of winning. Winner is responsible for including an email address or facebook profile where they can be reached. If the winner does no respond within five days a new winner will be chosen. Purchase does not guarantee a win. Entrant is responsible for removing personal information from any and all screen caps or correspondence.

And I think that’s it. Have a great week everyone!
