2012 Summer YA Scavenger Hunt is Now Over

Welcome to the 4th YA Scavenger Hunt

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 RED 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.

SCAVENGER HUNT PUZZLE INSTRUCTIONS

Directions: Below, you'll notice that I've listed my favorite number. Collect the favorite numbers of all the authors on the red 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 August 5, at noon Pacific Time. Entries sent without the correct number or without contact information will not be considered.

Now onto the Hunt

Today, I am thrilled to be hosting Jocelyn Davis on my website for the YA Scavenger Hunt!
Jocelyn Davies is the author of A BEAUTIFUL DARK. She edits young adult fiction at a publishing house in New York, a job that has allowed her to cultivate a keen interest in all things angsty, hilarious, and/or unrequited. She is a graduate of Bates College, and lives in an apartment overflowing with books. 

To find out more information about Jocelyn, please check out her author website by clicking here or pre-order it from Amazon by clicking here or Barnes and Noble by clicking here!

Today we are talking about her soon to be released novel:
A FRACTURED LIGHT: A Beautiful Dark Book 2 

When she wakes up in unfamiliar surroundings, Skye knows something terrible has happened to her. But it's not until she hears Asher, the dark, rebellious angel she fell in love with, that the memories come flooding back. She tries to put the past behind her, but she knows she'll be forever haunted by the ruthless betrayal that almost took her life.

Skye returns home, but with the knowledge of who she really is, nothing can ever be the same. As she tests the limits of her newfound powers, Skye discovers that she's capable of far more than anyone could have imagined. Both the Order and the Rebellion want her for their side as war between the factions looms. She can't forget the terrifying truth she now knows about the Order, but something holds her back from embracing the Rebellion.

Skye must make an impossible choice--one that will determine where she truly belongs. And her ultimate decision will change everything.

How fantastic does that sound? Make sure you pre-order your copy today from Amazon by clicking here or from Barnes and Noble by clicking here.


The EXCLUSIVE CONTENT from Fractured Light is no longer available.




And don't forget to enter the contest for a chance to win a ton of signed books, one by me, Lani Woodland, and more! To enter, you need to know that instead of eating a giant Baby Ruth candy bar, I try to be healthy and eat the bite-sized version. Sadly, I end up eating 12 of those. I should probably just give in and have one regular sized candy bar, right? Anyway, I digress. Take my bited-sized Baby Ruth number, add it up with all the favorite numbers of the authors on the red team and you'll have all the secret code to enter for the grand prize!



To keep going on your quest for the hunt, you need to check out the next author, Jessica Khoury by clicking here

But wait, there's 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 Aug 5th. So buy them now! 










And I'm also offering the chance to win one physical copy of Transcendent: Tales of the Paranormal, signed by three of the authors. I co-authored two short stories in this fun anthology. All you need to do to enter is leave a comment below and tweet about YA Scavenger Hunt by clicking the tweet #YASH icon below! Happy hunting and good luck!
