Enter for a Chance at an Autographed Paperback

How would you like to win an autographed paperback? Even better, how would you like to choose WHICH paperback you win – including the Collector’s Editions and the brand new Amaranthine Files handbook? To enter all you need is a facebook account and five minutes.

As I mentioned previously, I’m hosting a Halloween party in October on Facebook. An important part of any facebook event is the banner (or cover) at the top of the page:


The one I have set now is pretty boring, and I *know* you can come up with a better one! In fact, I’m counting on it.

How To Make A Cover Image:

You can use any image editing program you want (paintbrush, GIMP, Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop, you name it) OR you can use an online cover creator. I’ve found a few that are not only FREE but also have lots of clipart and images you can add to the banners. If you need help using them, I have tutorials on how to use each one on the Self Pubbed Authors’ site that each take about two minutes to go through.


You can make and enter as many cover images as you want. There is no limit.

For those using an art program: Recommended banner/cover image size is 856 x 317 pixels.

How to Enter:

Once you’ve made your image, be sure to click GOING to the facebook party and then post your creation as a COMMENT on the Banner/Cover Image Posting Thread. (it’s pinned to the top of the party page) Then send your friends and family to the page so they can “vote” by liking your post. The banner with the most likes on September 1, 2015 will be the winner.

Voting Details:

Each like on your banner translates to a vote – if the person who “liked” the post is also “going” to the Facebook party then their vote counts double. You may vote for your own banner, and voters (you included) may vote for more than one.

Where can I get Images to Use?

The generators I mentioned all have images available within them, but you can also upload your own. I have created a photobucket with a handful of items you can use (or not use – the choice is yours). If there is a particular image you’d like from me, let me know and I will add it.

About those Generators…

The cover generators are pretty easy to use. To see some how to’s please visit my post on Self Published Authors blog. 

All the Legal Mumbo Jumbo:

Neither facebook or the above linked sites endorse this giveaway. Winner will be chosen by the number of likes on his or her post on September 1st and announced thereafter. They will receive an autographed paper back of their choice from Joleene Naylor. Open to international and U.S. Void where prohibited by law. All entrants are responsible for making sure that any images they use in their entries have proper licensing.

Have fun and I look forward to seeing your entries at the Facebook Party!
