The YA Scavenger Hunt is on!

29 Mar

Today is the YA Scavenger Hunt and I’m participating for the first time. Yeeha!

Don’t know what the Scavenger Hunt is? Go HERE and find out now. You’ve only got 72 hours to play and win some amazing prizes…

OK, so there are 3 teams, red, blue and yellow and each team has its own loop so that you can win a total of 20 books per loop. You can enter just 1 loop, 2, or all 3 — that’s 60 awesome books!

I’m team RED! 

If you get lost or stuck at anytime go HERE.  Don’t forget, once you piece together all the clues to the hunt, make sure you fill out the form on the blog to officially qualify for the grand prize. Only entries that have the completed phrase will qualify.

Today for the hunt I am hosting Tara Fuller, author of Perigee Moon. We’re going to have an exclusive character interview in a moment, but first here’s a bit more about her:

Tara Fuller writes novels. Some about grim reapers. Some about witches. All of course are delightfully full of teen angst and kissing. Tara grew up in a one stop light town in Oklahoma where once upon a time she stayed up with a flash light reading RL Stine novles and only dreamed of becoming a writer. She has a slight obsession with music and a shameless addiction for zombie fiction, Mystery Science Theater, and black and white mochas. Tara no longer lives in a one stop light town. Now she lives with her family in a slightly larger town in North Carolina where they have at least three stoplights.

And the book…

After a horrific fire claims the life of her mother, seventeen year old Rowan Bliss finds herself in the miniscule town of Ipswich, Massachusetts. It’s here that she meets Alex, a deliciously mysterious boy who holds the key to unlocking her family’s dark secret.

As Rowan falls helplessly over the edge for Alex, the secrets that he insists on keeping refuse to be contained, and the truth that she uncovers challenges everything she has ever believed. Alex is a witch. And now he’s awakened something within her she never even knew existed. But out of all of this, the one thing Rowan won’t accept is the fact that Alex is destined to die.

Now Rowan must unearth the buried power she harbors within to escape a deadly prophecy, defy the very laws of time, and prevent the hands of fate from taking yet another person she loves.

Wow! How good does that sound!! You can buy Perigee Moon Here.


Sorry! The YA Scavenger Hunt is over and this material has been deleted! ***

Intriguing! Guess I need to get my hands on a copy of Perigee Moon to find out more about Alex and Rowan!

Don’t forget, in this post you’ll need to pick up the secret letter which will help you unscramble the winning phrase to win The Red Team’s books and prizes. The secret letter is the ONLY letter in this post in RED.

And while you’re going through the hunt, do keep an eye out for my special content — the video I have posted won’t be officially released for another few weeks and is only online for the next 3 days.

Want another opportunity to win a rare, signed ARC of THE GLIMPSE?  I just received the first advanced copy today, (see blog post below) so parallel to the Scavenger Hunt prize, I’m giving away an additional signed, advanced copy. All you have to do to be entered for a SECOND CHANCE to win The Glimpse is  ‘like’ my facebook page and/ or follow my blog and leave a comment Here (or on my fb page) to let me know what you did. (1 point for following the blog, 1 point for following the FB page and an extra point for tweeting about the giveaway with a link to my blog). The comp. is open internationally.  The winner will be randomly chosen and announced on the 10th April. For more info, just scroll down to today’s earlier post.

To continue the hunt go HERE

If you get lost or stuck at anytime on the Scavenger Hunt, go HERE.

    Just wanted to say thanks for writing the Glimpse. I have bipolar disorder, and I’m always on the lookout for books with a less “theatrical” treatment of mental illness.

    I’m a new email follower, but win or not, I’ve marked this down as to-read on good reads.
