Welcome to the awesomesauce book circus that is the YA Scavenger Hunt! For those new to the fun-fest that is YASH, this tri-annual event was first organized by the fabulous Colleen Houck as a way to give readers a chance to gain access to bonus material from their favorite authors … and a chance to win some awesome prizes!
So for those of you who don’t know me, I’m the author of several books, including the #1 Amazon best-seller BLOODSPELL; The AQUARATHI Series from Harlequin Teen - WATERFELL, OCEANBORN, and SEAMONSTER; as well as THE ALMOST GIRL, THE FALLEN PRINCE, and the Spring 2014 Kids’ Indie Next Pick ALPHA GODDESS from Sky Pony Press.
If you came here looking for my bonus material, a character inspiration post for THE FALLEN PRINCE, you’ll have to keep hunting!
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 bonus material) will only be online until noon PST on Sunday October 9th!
Check out the YA Scavenger Hunt page to find out all about the hunt. There are SIX contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all! I am a part of the RED TEAM–but there are also a bunch of other fabulous teams (BLUE, GOLD, GREEN, ORANGE & PURPLE teams–each with 20 authors) for a chance to win a whole different set of 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, OR IF YOU ARE STUCK, go to the YA Scavenger Hunt homepage.

ARE YOU GUYS READY?!?!
I am super-thrilled to be hosting the lovely Kristen Lippert-Martin and her AMAZING sequel to TABULA RASA, INCOGNITA, which *just released* this week, for this leg of the YA Scavenger Hunt!
Kristen Lippert-Martin received her MFA from Columbia University. Her debut YA novel, Tabula Rasa (Egmont USA/Lerner Books), was published in September, 2014. It was an IndieNext pick and a finalist for Best Young Adult Novel, given by ITW (International Thriller Writers). The sequel, Incognita, comes out October 1, 2016, from Carolrhoda Lab. She lives with her family in Arlington, VA.
In the wake of an experimental procedure that almost wiped out her memory forever, Angel has a chance for a fresh start. She’s recovered most of her memories, rebuilt her physical strength, and reunited with her boyfriend, Thomas. But her Velocius abilities—capacities for superhuman mental power—linger in her brain and put her life in jeopardy. And just when Angel is starting to feel comfortable with her new life, Thomas is kidnapped. With Thomas’s life and perhaps her own in danger, Angel races to unravel a new layer of the mystery surrounding her past and stay one step ahead of her enemies.
Find out more information about this exciting book by checking out Kristen’s website!
