Debut Author Giveaway Hop!

Hello, and welcome to your next stop in the Debut Author Giveaway Hop! (or your first stop, if this is, indeed, your first)

My name is Heather Eagar and I am the author of the YA Historical Fantasy, Devil’s Playground. But before I tell you more about that, I’d like to introduce myself a little more.


I move around a ton (usually about once a year) due to my husband still being in school (and possible forever.) BUT I currently reside in Logan, Utah where I attempt to balance my love of writing with raising a husband and two kids. Devil’s Playground is my debut novel, but it will not be my last. I am currently working on the sequel, as well as a YA contemporary novel.

I am not only an author, but I am also a book reviewer and you can find reviews for Middle-grade fiction through Adult novels on this website. My reviews are a bit different in that, not only do I give you a summary and tell you what I thought of the book, but I also give it a content rating for vulgar language, sex, and violence, so you know what you are getting before opening it.

Ok, now for Devil’s Playground. Can I just tell you, it was so much fun to write! It is set during the Salem Witch Trials and many of my characters are people that were involved in the actual trials. But even though there are a lot of historically accurate details, I also had a lot of fun playing with and bending history. So…don’t get too hung up on the details. It’s historical FANTASY after all.




Sixteen-year-old Elizabeth Winters may be a witch, but she doesn’t know the first thing about magic—unless you count accidental bouts of spontaneous combustion. Elizabeth’s father, a wizard himself, has forbidden the use of her powers for her own protection, but when accusations of witchcraft start flying through Salem Village, she wishes she was more prepared.

Despite her lack of magical knowledge, Elizabeth appoints herself to save innocent women from the demise the village has in store for them. Elizabeth finds, however, that she is not the hero Salem needs her to be.

She meant to save them. She cursed them instead.

  1. Well, I can show an example of books that I have or read that don’t fall into one of these two categories, but the two biggest things that I read and have the most of are romances and science. And within there, mainly contemporary romances and astronomy/astrophysics/geology with science. Impacting me – depends on what the impact is, there is no one single book I can think of for that. 🙂

  2. As a child in the 50’s I had a large book with a sky blue cover and it was called Christmas Stories? Can’t recall the exact name but I read from that book every day for years and years. I think reading is one of the most important life lessons you can teach your kids.

  3. Reading (especially in bed at night before I go to sleep) feels like a luxurious vacation for my mind. When I am into a good book, I really look forward to my reading hour, and sometimes thinking about reading later helps me through a hard day. I find the history of Salem so interesting that I took a trip there one time. It was totally worth it!

    1. I’m embarrassed to say that even though my book takes place in Salem, I’ve never been. My dream is to do a book signing there. 🙂


  4. I have several favorite authors: Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs, Setta Jay, Anna Lowe, Nalini Singh, Shelly Laurenston aka G.A. Aiken, and more but those are the top picks.
    Reading is a great escape and a way to make new friends.

  5. I used to read when I was younger but for a couple of years I didn’t read. I started reading again when I was in high school, I was always checking out books from the school library 😊 I read contemporary and fiction novels, back then I didn’t know about YA fantasy, until I read Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier. That book got me back into reading, I was more excited to read because I really enjoyed that book 😊😊
