Spring 2018 YA Scavenger Hunt

Welcome to the awesomesauce book circus that is the YA Scavenger Hunt! For those new to the fun-fest that is YASH, this bi-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 gothic bestseller BLOODSPELL and the IPPY award winning BLOODCRAFT in my witch/vampire series; WATERFELLOCEANBORN, and SEAMONSTER in my twist on mermaids series; THE ALMOST GIRL and THE FALLEN PRINCE in my parallel universe science fiction series; and the Spring 2014 Kids’ Indie Next Pick ALPHA GODDESS and DARK GODDESS in my hindu mythology series. I am also the co-author of the steamy historical romance series: the LORDS OF ESSEX.

If you came here looking for my bonus material, an excerpt from DARK GODDESS, you’ll have to keep hunting!

This hunt, I am a member of the BLUE team!

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 April 8th!

http://www.dreamstime.com/-image16288022Check 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 BLUE TEAM–but there are also a bunch of other fabulous teams 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.

SCAVENGER HUNT PUZZLE

    My fave YA genre? FANTASY! And science fiction. My fantasy has to have a love interest of some kind though or else I get bored – but Alpha and Dark Goddess sound right up my alley!
    I missed the Dark Goddess drop at ALAMW but I don’t have Alpha, so this would be awesome! I love YASH!!

    Ooooooohhhh…tough question! I read a mix of genres; I have a hard time reading just one genre. I usually read a mix of fantasy, dystopian, scifi, and contemporaries.

    Favourite YA genre is HANDS DOWN Fantasy. I absolutely adore it – especially fantasy based on Greek Mythology or Arthurian legend, and if the fantasy has a strong female protagonist I am even more happy! 😀
