A teenage vampire who is too busy helping Oren with his war to sparkle. With a naturally cheerful attitude, he’s one of the few who seem to have a real fondness for Katelina, but one question remains – how can he stand Micah? And why do they seem to be such good friends?

Ties of Blood is now available in paper back!

The third installment of the Amaranthine series is now available in paper back.

Right now you can get it from the very cool CS estore –  https://www.createspace.com/3661748 – Amazon is coming next.

I’ve had a few people ask me about Barnes & Noble, and I have to admit I’m a little frustrated when it comes to B&N. I have been happily letting Smashwords handle my distribution to several places (Kobo, Barnes & Noble, etc) and they’ve always been prompt, but so far nothing. I inquired about why the book still has not shipped – one month after publishing – and was told that it will ship this week or next, which means another two weeks after that before it will show up at Barnes and Noble! I’m not very happy about that. Best case scenario is two more weeks, making it six weeks since I published – meanwhile my dashboard says it shipped to Apple on the 17th of September. If it can ship to apple why can’t it ship anywhere else?

This is the first time I’ve had trouble with Smashwords distribution, but if it doesn’t ship soon I’m going to go through Barnes & Noble myself. 😦

Okay, enough of the bad stuff! Go check out the estore – even if you’re not buying a paperback – because I am rather proud of the wallpaper (yes, I get custom wallpaper!) And while you’re at it, why not go check out the other two? They have cool wallpaper, too!

Hair: Golden tawny
Eye color: amber
Height: 5’ 10”
Jorick’s friend and Fledgling, Oren suffers at the recent loss of his wife and children at the hands of the Executioners. He plans to fight The Guild to avenge his murdered family. In order to do so, he has to make a pact with another coven, one who’s reputation is dubious at best. After Katelina is taken to The Guild, will he convince his friend and master to leave the human to her fate, or will he help him to get her back, and at what cost?

Hair: white
Eyes: brown
Height; 5’ 4”
The oldest and most powerful vampire in North America and the leader of The Guild, Malick is also Jorick and Kateesha’s master. When he demands the Katelina’s presence is it because he wants to punish her, or is he after something else?

Hair: black
Eye color: deep brown
Height: 5’9”
Jorick’s sister in blood; he and Kateesha shared the same master. Though she’s been defeated, her death has created ripples that threaten to overturn Jorick’s plans for peace and quiet. How can one dead vampiress cause so many problems?

Meet the other characters



Hair: red
Eyes: Purple/brown
Height: 5’7”
A too cheerful vampire who seems comparable to Visa: he’s everywhere you want to be – or at least everywhere Katelina and Jorick are. What is he up to? And just whose side is he on? Is he one of the good guys or one of the bad guys? Does he even know? Even more curios, why doesn’t Katelina hate him like she should?

Meet the other characters



Hair: Long black hair
Eye color: so dark they look black
Height: 6’1”
Katelina’s dark, enigmatic, vampire lover. Conflict of interest might stop him from openly joining Oren’s war, but it doesn’t keep him away. Even a trip to Katelina’s hometown is punctuated with Oren’s familiar foot print. But then The Guild takes Katelina and he suddenly needs his fledglings help to rescue her. Can he convince him to go without having to agree to join him?

Katelina Mauldin:

Hair: long blonde

Eye color: blue

Height: 5’ 6”

Katelina chose to leave her old life behind, but an abandoned apartment and a worried mother need dealt with. A trip home causes more problems than resolutions, and starts the ball rolling down a path that leads to the Guild’s Citadel. Taken against her will, Katelina watches helplessly as each mile takes her closer to an appointment with Malick and further away from Jorick. Will he be able to rescue her in time, or will Oren finally talk him into abandoning her?

Characters from Ties of Blood

If you were here for the release of Legacy of Ghosts you might remember that as part of the “pre-hype” I posted a character a day – or something like that – including an image I’d drawn of them and a mini teaser bio. Yeah, I’m doing it again – though a bit belated this time.

If you want to cheat, they’re already up on JoleeneNaylor.com in the Ties of Blood section of the website.

Just to be really, really annoying, I’m going to post each character in their own blog so, as the announcer for Gatchaman used to say, “Look forward to it!”

I’m a Tuesday Filler!

kinda like roast beef.

Okay, maybe not. It sounded funny in my head. Too much medication? or do i need medication?

Anyway, Barb was kind enough to use her review of Ties of Blood as a Tuesday Filler, so hop over, check it out and while you’re there she has a link where you can vote for her (the link is in the last paragraph and takes you to a new page. the poll is on the upper right.)
