Happy Birthday, Jane!

Can you believe it? A year ago today, I officially became a published author when I uploaded Vampire Assassin (Jane #1) to Amazon KDP. It's crazy how time flies. Since then, I've published four more books in the Jane series (and am working on another), as well as two books for Blood of the Dragon and several short stories. It's so weird to think that it's only been a year. I've learned so much in such a short time and made some absolutely amazing friends and mentors. A huge thanks to all the MyWANA folks, especially Kristen Lamb, who gave me some priceless tips on using social media effectively, and Debora Geary, whose suggestions helped Vampire Assassin really take off. If you haven't read the series, VA is free!

Anyway, on to the fun stuff! In honor of Jane's birthday, I'm going to have a little party. And what's a party without party favors? Two lucky people are going to win some very awesome prizes.
  • One winner will receive a $50 Amazon (or B&N) gift card and a signed copy of both volumes of Jane* (Jane, vol 2 will be out by the end of April).
  • Winner #2 will receive the entire Jane collection in the ebook format of their choice, including the as-yet-unreleased Blood Moon (Jane #6)
So how do you enter? It's easy peasy. Just make a comment below. Make sure you include your email somewhere in there, especially if you post anonymously. You get two entries if you comment and tweet about the giveaway (include @_samanthawarren so I'll know). The contest will be open until 8pm ET on April 1st (that's tomorrow, and my uncle's birthday and April Fool's Day... hmm... chocolate crickets anyone?).

*They can opt for the ebook collection instead, if preferred. The printed books are available for US participants only.
