STAINED comes out Oct 1 in the US and Canada–in hardcover, ebook, and audiobook editions! I’m having this contest to celebrate.

AND you’ll be entered to win:

The grand prize: an ebook reader
(Kindle, Kobo, or Nook Simple Touch)


And these prizes:

  • a $25 bookstore giftcard to an online bookstore of your choice;
  • 1 ebook copy of HUNTED;
  • 1 audiobook copy of SCARS or STAINED (MP3 download, your choice which book);
  • 1 ARC (Advance Reader Copy) of STAINED with the original cover before it was changed and all the mistakes (hey, it might become a collector’s item);
  • 3 purple bracelets with “Sometimes You Have To Be Your Own Hero” on one side (for Stained) and “Love Yourself” on the other (for Scars), with my name in small letters. A good way to remind yourself that you’re strong.

You can win entries by:

1. Buying a copy of STAINED in any format (hardcover, ebook, audiobook). I’m trying to create a surge of sales to boost the book and help get the word out there, so I’d love it if you purchased STAINED now or in the first month of sales. Email me copy of your sales receipt to Cheryl (at) CherylRainfield (dot) com.

Buy a copy of STAINED = 10 points

2. Buy more than one book! You get ten extra points for each additional book you buy.

Buy additional copies of STAINED = 10 extra points per book

3. Share a link to this contest online. You get one point per social media share per day, with a limit of 10 total points–Twitter, FaceBook, Tumblr, Pinterest, Google +, LinkedIN, your blog, etc.

Share on social media once per day per outlet = total of 10 points

5. Post a picture of the book after purchase. Upload the picture (or your e-reader with the book’s cover displayed on the screen) to Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or your blog and email me the link.

Post a picture = 5 points

Deadline: midnight EST Oct 31st.
Winners will be announced in the first week of November.

Why am I doing this? It really helps a book get noticed by other readers (and publishers like it, too) when a book sells well in its first month or during the pre-order period. If you like my books, please consider buying a copy of STAINED now or in the first month of its release (Oct 1-Oct 31).

Good luck to you, and thank you so very much for helping me celebrate the launch of STAINED and helping me get the word out about it!

You can also enter to win another eBook reader, more bookstore giftcards and ebook copies of my book by “>following my month-long STAINED book blog tour.

Praise From Other Authors for STAINED:

“Powerful. I raced through it, wanting to know if Sarah would find a way to escape both her captor and her self-doubts. A real nail-biter!”

—April Henry, New York Times-bestselling author of The Girl Who Was Supposed to Die

“A compelling, gutting, and ultimately triumphant read. You won’t want to stop turning pages — Or blink. Or breathe. — until you reach the very last one.”

—Jennifer Brown, award-winning author of Hate List

“STAINED is dark, tense and gripping; a triumph of one girl’s heart, soul and will to survive. Sarah’s strength during her descent into terror kept me reading way past bedtime!”

—Laura Wiess, critically acclaimed author of Such a Pretty Girl


“Rainfield (Scars) imbues Sarah’s story with heartfelt emotion that resonates as much as Sarah’s fighting spirit inspires.”

Publisher’s Weekly

“Sarah’s determination to stay alive and escape will resonate with readers, and they will cheer her efforts to overcome her underdog status.”


“Stained was an exciting, action-packed story that kept my heart racing the entire time. Every chance I had, I was reading this book. I felt drawn into the book, like I was actually in it. I felt like it was me clawing at the boards on the windows until my fingers bled. … This is a wonderful book that all teens will enjoy.”

—Michaela B., age 14, teen reviewer in School Library Journal

I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
