YA Scavenger Hunt!

ETA: The Hunt is officially closed! Winners will be announced on the YA Scavenger Hunt website on Monday!

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 both! 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 August 5, at noon Pacific Time. Entries sent without the correct number or without contact information will not be considered.


Today, I am hosting Marley Gibson on my website for the YA Scavenger Hunt! 

Marley Gibson is a multi-published author in young adult and romance fiction, as well as non-fiction books for Penguin Putnam, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, and St. Martin's Press.Her popular GHOST HUNTRESS series has been option by Shoulderhill Entertainment and she was featured on the premiere episode of A&E's Biography Channel's "My Ghost Story." Her YA book RADIATE has received critical acclaim as a fictionalize version of the cancer she went through as a teenage cheerleader. Although she calls Boston home, she and her husband, Patrick Burns of TruTV's "Haunting Evidence" and Travel Channel's "Paranormal Challenge," live full time in their RV motorhome they lovingly call Midge with their two rescue kitties Madison and Boo.

And don't forget to enter the contest for a chance to win a ton of signed books by me, Marley Gibson, and more! To enter, you need to know that my favorite number is 7. Add up all the favorite numbers of the authors on the blue team and you'll have 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!

As my additional contribution to The Hunt, I will award an advance copy of my ebook of companion stories and deleted scenes from Never Enough!

This doesn't officially release until September, but if you follow my blog (on the right sidebar) and add the Companion Stories to your GoodReads to-read list, and comment below to tell me that you've done both, you will be entered to win!

Best of luck with all of the wonderful Scavenger Hunt prizes!
