YA Scavenger Hunt: Spring 2013

Welcome to YA Scavenger Hunt! This tri-annual event was first organized by author Colleen Houck as a way to give readers a chance to gain access to exclusive bonus material from their favorite authors...and a chance to win some awesome prizes! At this hunt, you not only get access to exclusive content from each author, you also get a clue for the hunt. Add up the clues, and you can enter for our prize--one lucky winner will receive one signed book from each author on the hunt in my team! But play fast: this contest (and all the exclusive bonus material) will only be online for 72 hours!

Go to the YA Scavenger Hunt page to find out all about the hunt. There are TWO contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all! I am a part of the BLUE TEAM--but there is also a red team for a chance to win a whole different set of twenty-five signed books!

If you'd like to find out more about the hunt, see links to all the authors participating, and see the full list of prizes up for grabs, go to the YA Scavenger Hunt homepage.


Directions: Below, you'll notice that I've listed my favorite number. Collect the favorite numbers of all the authors on the blue team, and then add them up (don't worry, you can use a calculator!). 

Entry Form: Once you've added up all the numbers, make sure you fill out the form here to officially qualify for the grand prize. Only entries that have the correct number will qualify.

Rules: Open internationally, anyone below the age of 18 should have a parent or guardian's permission to enter. To be eligible for the grand prize, you must submit the completed entry form by April 7, at noon Pacific Time. Entries sent without the correct number or without contact information will not be considered.


Today, I am hosting Carrie Jones on my website for the YA Scavenger Hunt! Carrie Jones is the NYT bestselling and internationally best selling author of the NEED series and other books. She is a distinguished alum of Vermont College of Fine Arts, lives in Maine, has won random prizes, and really acts like a puppy. It's sort of sad, really. Some day she'll act human. Probably when she is ninety-eight.

Find out more information by checking out the author website or find more about Carrie's book here


The hunt is now over, so Carrie's exclusive content is hidden! Go to her website for more information.



The Hunt's an exciting time, and I'm in the giving mood! Fill out the Rafflecopter below for your chance to win a signed copy of SHADES OF EARTH, my latest novel, as well as exclusive DEFY THE DARK swag! If you find my post hidden in the hunt, you'll see a sneak peek at the short story I have in the DEFY THE DARK anthology. Full terms here.
