All Hail the Queen!

The Queen of Blog Land Scores a Book Deal!



Yeah, yeah, I know I'm a little late to the party. I wanted to post this yesterday, but this is the week we move into our new house (woo-hoo!) and I never got a chance to blog. It's also why I'm so late posting today. But that's not the point!

The point is that our BELOVED Elana Johnson - the query queen, the cheer queen, the "You CAN do hard things!" queen - sold her book!!!!!

Here are the details from Publisher's Marketplace:
Elana Johnson's CONTROL ISSUES, set in a brainwashed society where those gifted with mind control best join the powers that be, but one rebel girl tries to beat them at their own game, to Anica Rissi at Simon Pulse, by Michelle Andelman at Lynn Franklin Associates (NA).
I could not be happier! To CELEBRATE Elana's book deal, I am going to give a $10.00 Amazon gift card to one of today's commenters. I am in the mood to party on her behalf, and a party needs presents! Right? Right!

You must be a follower to win. Now, go leave a comment. And if you haven't already, go give Elana some love!

***(Added) As if she isn't already too awesomesauce for words, Elana is going to match my gift card giveaway! That means we can have TWO winners!
