YA Scavenger Hunt is Now Over


The YA Scavenger Hunt is Now Over

You can still find out about the author I hosted but the chance to enter for the grand prize and to view the exclusive content 
is no longer available.

 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 at each author's post. Add up the clues, and you can enter for our prize--one lucky winner will receive TWENTY signed books, one book from each author on the hunt in the 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 THREE contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter all three! I am a part of the Red Team--but there are also a blue team and a yellow team. You can enter all three contests--which have a combined a total prize bucket of SIXTY 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.

SCAVENGER HUNT PUZZLE

Directions: Hidden within my post is a single letter that is red. Make a note of that letter! It's a part of a scrambled phrase. When you go to all the author sites of the red team, you'll have all the letters you need to enter the contest.

Entry Form: Once you piece together all the clues to the hunt, make sure you fill out the form here to officially qualify for the grand prize. Only entries that have the completed phrase 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 noon on April 1st PST. Entries sent without the correct puzzle code or without contact information will not be considered.

Now, onto the Hunt!


Today, I am hosting Claire Merle, author of The Glimpse on my website for the YA Scavenger Hunt! Claire wrote her first paranormal screenplay at the age of thirteen and named it after a road sign. DANGER ALIVE never made it to the big screen, but she continued to write and daydream her way through school and university, graduated with a BA (Hons) in Film Studies, and spent the next few years working in the British Film Industry. Among other things, Claire loves waking early to write, singing loudly in the car and making snowmen. Since leaving the BFI she’s become something of a Romantic Comedy junkie, and now lives in France with her French husband and two young sons.


Find out more information about Claire by checking out her author website. You can also find out how to purchase her books by clicking here!

About The Glimpse



In a near future, society is segregated according to whether people are genetically disposed to mental illness. 17-year-old Ana has been living the privileged life of a Pure due to an error in her DNA test. When the authorities find out, she faces banishment from her safe Community, a fate only thwarted by the fact that she has already been promised to Pure-boy Jasper Taurell.

Jasper is from a rich and influential family and despite Ana’s condition, wants to be with her. The authorities grant Ana a tentative reprieve. If she is joined to Jasper before her 18th birthday, she may stay in the Community until her illness manifests. But if Jasper changes his mind, she will be cast out among the Crazies. As Ana’s joining ceremony and her birthday loom closer, she dares to hope she will be saved from the horror of the City and live a ‘normal’ life. But then Jasper disappears.

Led to believe Jasper has been taken by a strange sect the authorities will not intefere with, Ana sneaks out of her well-guarded Community to find him herself. Her search takes her through the underbelly of society and into the pits of the human soul. And as she delves deeper into the mystery of Jasper's abduction she uncovers some devastating truths that destroy everything she has grown up to believe, but she also learns to love as she has never loved before.

Sounds good, right? You can pre-order The Glimpse by clicking here.
The Exclusive Content: The Glimpse Book Trailer has been taken down since the YA Scavenger is now over.


How fantastic does that look? Are you as excited as I am to read it? It comes out on June 7th.
Follow this link to LISA & LAURA ROECKER'S website for the next stop on the Scavenger Hunt. If you find yourself stuck during the hunt go here.

But wait, there is more. For the days of the hunt only, you can purchase my books
Intrinsical (the first book in the Yara Silva Trilogy) and Indelible (the second book in the Yara Silva Trilogy) for the Nook and Kindle for only 99 cents. The prices go back up on April second. So buy them now!






I'm also offering the chance to win a physical copy of Transcendent: Tales of the Paranormal. I co-authored two short stories in this anthology. All you have to do is leave a comment below and fill out the Rafflecopter form. The form gives you several opportunities to get extra entries.

Transcendent sounds like my kind of read. I've always loved paranormal stories and that still shows in my taste in books today. I haven't read a collection of short paranormal stories in a long time and this seems like a great book to start with that again. So thanks for the giveaway! :). Wait, is it international?
