Hullabaloos, Surprise Birthdays, and Elana Johnson...Yes, They Do All Go Together!

I am SO EXCITED for today...maybe even more than I was about my cover reveal yesterday! You know when you plan a surprise party for weeks and weeks, terrified that the person you are trying to surprise is totally gonna find out??? Especially when they are smart and intuitive???

Yea, that is how the last several weeks have been.

See, I wanted to plan out a special surprise for someone who has given so much of herself to readers and writers alike. Someone who asks for little and gives, gives, gives.

She teaches kids about writing, teaches authors how to push through the hard in this business, and works harder than almost anyone I know. She blogs about her trials and tribulations as she forges her own unique path, and is genuine, authentic and fearless in her frank conversations. For me, she has been a friend, a counselor, a mentor, the personal to kick me in the rear when I needed it and an inspiration. She has been that for countless others, too

So, together with Ali Cross, we decided to reach out to some of her friends and all post about her today. And give stuff away - like her books. I mean, what better gift than to give away her books, right???

So today, for my Day #2 of the Holiday Hullabaloo giveaway, we are celebrating ELANA JOHNSON's BIRTHDAY and giving away a complete set of her Books in print, in ebook, and yea...some bonus things too. All you have to do it wish her a happy birthday and fill out the rafflecopter form below. WOO HOO!!!!
