FABULOUS FRIDAY: Lea's 3 Book Deal and The Season's Reading Blog Hop and Giveaway!

Welcome to Fabulous Fridays, a new feature on Honestly YA where we shamelessly jump for joy over our own phenomenally great news and offer fantastic freebies to our lovely readers. This week I'm stealing the spotlight because I've got a whopper to share with you all. Are you ready?


Um, for your safety maybe you should take a step back because I'm 'bout to get loud up in here... Ahem:

I MADE MY FIRST SALE!!!

That's right, baby! I'm beyond thrilled to announce that THE HOODOO APPRENTICE, a story featuring an 18th-century hidden pirate treasure, a wicked flesh eating curse, soul-snatching and Gullah Hoodoo magic has been acquired by Entangled Publishing as their first middle grade/young adult crossover. 

And I didn't just sell one book. No, I sold THREE!!! So now I've got a whole lot of pages to fill with Emma and Cooper's adventures in the South Carolina lowcountry, along with a mess of supernatural demons to vanquish. I can't wait! 

So, how does one celebrate such great news? Why with a super fantastic give away, of course! But this one isn't just from me. Along with Carey Corp, another of Honestly YA's brilliant writers, I'm pleased to be a participant in the Seasons of Reading Holiday Blog Hop.  
Click HERE for the Blog Hop's Main Page
This blog hop was put together by our friend Jo Ramsey and features 14 authors discussing favorite books they either gave or received as gifts, 14 prizes AND 14 book donations to local libraries or school. Since my book isn't on the shelves yet, I'm giving away a FREE $10 Amazon gift certificate. Other writers are giving away free copies of their books. 

All you need to do is visit our individual author pages from the main blog hop page, follow the entry rules and leave a comment. How easy is that? And guess what? Entries are low so you've got a great chance at winning!

And because Jo's so kind, she's given each of us a special spotlight on her blog.  Here's my spotlight; and here's Carey's spotlight. Check us out.

So help me celebrate the holidays and *squee!* my first sale by entering. I hope you win. Seriously, I gotta give this Amazon gift card to someone, why not you?
