For the first time, I'm participating in the YA Scavenger Hunt. This is an online event that happens twice a year where YA authors band together to help each other get the word out about their latest YA novels while giving away TONS of amazing prizes.
There are eight different teams with 20 authors on EACH team. Here is my team - look at all of those BEAUTIFUL books!
So how does the hunt work? It's like a giant puzzle that moves hunters from one page to the next, gathering secret numbers on each page. Hunters add up the numbers and submit them to be entered to win a prize - books from every member on that team!! For more details about how it all works, go HERE. Along the way, gathering the numbers, hunters get to learn about all kinds of wonderful YA novels you may not have heard of before. Many authors offer individual drawings to win extra prizes as well. So my advice is to not rush through the sites, but take the time to read about each of the books and check for extra prizes that can be entered for along the way.
The fun and games starts on October 1st (noon PST/3:00 EST) and goes through October 5th (noon PST/3:00 EST). Here on my site, I'm excited to be hosting Debra Dockter, author of DEADLY DESIGN. For an extra prize, I'll be offering up a pretty framed print along with winner's choice of one of my books, signed and personalized. AND, somewhere within Team Green's scavenger hunt, a brand new book trailer for ALL WE HAVE IS NOW will be revealed!!
Hopefully I'll see you back here on Thursday, when the fun begins!
