22 Clara Kensie's News and Celebration!

Because we are helping Clara celebrate her amazing news today, we posted last week's Pick & Mix winners on yesterdays post. Be sure to check it out here: http://childrenspublishing.blogspot.com/2013/08/seven-ya-book-giveaways-plus-new.html



Hey everyone! Clara Kensie here. Confession: I've been keeping a secret from you. I've kept some Very Exciting News to myself for over five months, when most people in my situation are able to share their Very Exciting News almost immediately. It was killing me, guys, not to tell you. But this week, I was finally given permission to shout it from the mountaintops. So here it is. Ready?

I have my very first book deal! Squeeee!

My super-romantic paranormal thriller RUN TO YOU will be published in February 2014, followed by the sequel in June 2014. I’m honored to be a Harlequin TEEN author, and proud to be part of their new, exclusive digital-first collection. Even more fantastic? Both books are three-part serials, with each episode releasing one week apart.

Clearly, this calls for a celebration.

To celebrate my book deal, and also that it’s part of the new digital-first collection, and also that I finally get to tell you about it, I am having a YA book giveaway! I have three prize packs to to give away (three prizes to celebrate my three-part serials, get it?).


PRIZE PACK #1:

TIGER’S CURSE by Colleen Houck
THE FOREST OF HANDS AND TEETH by Carrie Ryan
BURNED, IMPULSE, and IDENTICAL by Ellen Hopkins
