Indie Author Book Expo

  1. Can you tell us a little about you?

My name is Joleene Naylor and I’m the author of the glitterless Amaranthine Universe. When I’m not writing or doing author related things, I’m working on remodeling our sagging Victorian house, watching anime, or playing Pokemon Go or Niki-Love Dress Up Queen.

  1. Do you self-publish or work with a publisher?

Self Publish.

  1. How many titles have you published so far?

Ten novels, three short story collections, an illustrated handbook, and a lot of “extra” short stories, like Jorick’s origin story that’s part of the anthology Creature Feature. The Amaranthine Universe can be as deep – or shallow – as you want it to be.

  1. How much time to you devote to replying to fans on social media each week?

However much time it takes. Interacting with readers is my favorite part of being an author. I spend a lot of time in…

Brothers of Darkness Cover Reveal

PATRICK - vs 3
We knew it was going to be Patrick on the cover – does he look like you expected? I did change the layout a little so it’s not exactly like the series because while it goes with it, it’s also a separate animal, and with other stand alone books coming (Micah’s, maybe Jorick’s, and a new trilogy set in the future) all NOT staring Katelina (but in the same Universe) I guess it’s a good idea to start building on the idea of in-Universe novels that are not in the series proper.

What do you think? Like it? Love it? Hate it? Want an autographed paperback copy? If so message me, otherwise leave your thoughts in the comments!

(It may take a few days for all retailers to update the listing with the new cover, so if you don’t see it yet, it’s coming!)

PATRICK - vs 3

The new Collector’s cover will appear in December, so you have until then to grab the old collector version .

This is the final cover in the grand re-branding, so we’re all done with the reveals! What’s next? As I mentioned, I’m going to start writing a Micah and Loren story (I don’t have a release date set, we’ll see how it goes), and a website redesign may be in the works.

In the meantime, I’m going to be in Des Moines at the Indie Author Expo at the end of this month. You can check out the sidebar “coming events” for more details, or wait for the blog post. Be great to see some of my fans there!

Children of Shadows Collector Cover is Retiring

CoS RETIRE.png

Do you still need/want the hand drawn Children of Shadows cover for your Amaranthine collection? If so, you have until August to get it, and then it’s gone.

You can get a copy direct from Amazon (for $9.50 plus S&H if you don’t have prime) or you can contact me to get a signed copy (Message me on FB or send me an email), though the signed copy costs more (because I have to pay double postage – once to ship to me and again to ship to you, making it $14.00 total)*.

*prices for US only. No idea what International is.

So get your collector copy today, before it’s gone!

Goddess of Night Cover Reveal

And for the final book in the series, Lilith lost her place to… well, no spoilers for those who have not read the series, but if you have, it’s the person Katelina and Jorick take with them to the ball in book 8. Did you recognize her?

The only cover left is Patrick, so there won’t be a surprise about who is on it!

Who likes a sale? (*raises hand*)

Who likes a sale on really awesome stuff? (*raises hand more aggressively*)

Who likes a sale on really awesome baddass stories from badass authors? (*THROWS MONEY AT QUESTIONER*)

Okay, good. I’ve got your attention:

Vampires… Werewolves… Monsters… They stalk our dreams and nightmares… the stuff of legends and fantasies…

Featuring short stories by Joleene Naylor (the Amaranthine series), Amber Naralim (the Monsters series), and Gabriella Messina (the Bloodline series), CREATURE FEATURE invites you to take a taste of the worlds these three authors have created, and the creature characters you will never forget. 

Okay, I haven’t had the pleasure of reading Amber Naralim or Gabriella Messina’s stories quite  *yet* (though I’m sure they’re amazing) but I was able to sneak a peek at one of Amaranthine-world-creator, Joleene Naylor’s and it’s AWESOME. First, if you haven’t delved into her series yet- what are you waiting…
