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 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 so excited to be hosting Rachel Vincent on my website for the YA Scavenger Hunt!

Rachel is the New York Times and USA Today best selling author of the YA series "Soul Screamers" and other urban fantasy titles.  She currently resides in San Antonio with her #1 fan and is hard at work on her next novel. 
Find out more information by checking out the author website or find more about the author's book here!

Soul Screamers Volume 2 contains the 3rd and 4th books of the series along with the novella, "Reaper".  Soul Screamers follows a young banshee, Kaylee Cavanaugh as she fights against the dark forces of the Netherworld.


Rachel's exclusive content is a 1,700 word peek at a scene from WITH ALL MY SOUL, the seventh/final Soul Screamers novel, which is due out April 1, 2013!
Note from the author:  
 The excerpt isn't super-spoilery for WITH ALL MY SOUL, but contains a major spoiler from book 6, BEFORE I WAKE.

And don't forget to enter the contest for a chance to win a ton of signed books by me, Rachel Vincent, and more! To enter, you need to know that my favorite number is 17. Add up all the favorite numbers of the authors on the blue 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, Peter Adam Salomon!
To move onto Peter's Post.

Inbetween Christmas Gift Offer!

Tis the season to shop till you drop and Christmas is right around the corner! With the holiday season in mind, I thought I'd make a special offer to anyone out there who would like to add Inbetween to your gift giving list this year. Here is how it will work:
Purchase a paperback copy of Inbetween as a gift by December 15th and I will send you a signed Kissed by Death bookplate and an Inbetween bookmark to make your gift extra special!
Just email your proof of purchase to and let me know who you would like the bookplate made out to. I will write a personal message on the bookplate as well as sign it. Also let me know the mailing address you would like them sent to.
**This offer will end on December 15th, so that I have time to get the bookplates and bookmarks out to you before the big day.**
