Join the Young Adult Scavenger Hunt — October 2014!

Welcome to the YA Scavenger Hunt! There are SIX contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter them all! I am a part of the INDIE TEAM–but remember there are also  five other teams, which gives you multiple chances to win a completely different set of signed books!

One lucky winner will receive a signed book from each author on The Hunt from the INDIE TEAM! Even better, you have a chance to win a grand prize from each other teams as well. But play fast: this contest (and all the exclusive bonus material) starts on October 2 at noon (PST), and ends on Sunday, October 5th at noon!

Team Indie

This tri-annual event was first organized by author Colleen Houck as a way to give readers a chance to find exciting new authors, gain access to exclusive bonus material from their favorite authors…and get a chance to win some awesome prizes!

Visit the official “HOW TO HUNT” -YA Scavenger Hunt page to learn more about The Hunt, view links to the participating authors, and the list of prizes!

Solving the Puzzle & Entering the Contest

Directions: I’ve listed my favorite number in the text below. Collect the “favorite/secret numbers” from all of the authors on the INDIE TEAM, and then add them up to discover the winning number (don’t worry, you can use a calculator!).

Entry Form: Once you’ve added all the numbers for the INDIE TEAM authors, make sure you fill out the entry form <click here> to officially qualify for the grand prize. Only entries that have the correct number will qualify. So, make sure you get the number from each author on my team.

Contest Rules: Open internationally. Anyone under the age of 18 should have a parent’s or guardian’s permission to enter. To be eligible for the grand prize, you must submit the completed entry form by Sunday, October 5th at noon Pacific Time. Entries submitted without the correct number, without contact information, or after the deadline will not be considered. The winner will be chosen at random from the qualified entries for each team.

Meet the Author: Rachel Morgan

Today, I am hosting Rachel Morgan on for the YA Scavenger Hunt!

“Rachel Morgan is a South African author who spent a large portion of her childhood living in a fantasy land of her own making. After completing a degree in genetics, she decided science wasn’t for her–after all, they didn’t approve of made-up facts. These days she spends much of her time immersed in fantasy land once more, writing fiction for young adults and those young at heart. She is the author of the bestselling Creepy Hollow series, and the lighthearted contemporary romance Trouble series.”

Find out more information by checking out Rachel’s website or find more about Creepy Hollow: THE FAERIE GUARDIAN here!

Creepy Hollow: THE FAERIE GUARDIAN by Rachel Morgan

Protecting humans from dangerous magical creatures is all in a day’s work for a faerie training to be a guardian. Seventeen-year-old Violet Fairdale knows this better than anyone–she’s about to become the best guardian the Guild has seen in years. That is, until a cute human boy who can somehow see through her faerie glamour follows her into the fae realm. Now she’s broken Guild Law, a crime that could lead to her expulsion.

The last thing Vi wants to do is spend any more time with the boy who got her into this mess, but the Guild requires that she return Nate to his home and make him forget everything he’s discovered of the fae realm. Easy, right? Not when you factor in evil faeries, long-lost family members, and inconvenient feelings of the romantic kind. Vi is about to find herself tangled up in a dangerous plot–and it’ll take all her training to get out of it alive.

Remember to enter the Other Teams’ contests for your chance to win a bunch of signed books–including books by me, Rachel Morgan, Colleen Houck, and more! To enter, you need to know that my favorite number is 10. Once you’ve collected all of the INDIE TEAM’S favorite numbers, add them together and you’ll have the secret code to enter for the grand prize! Here’s a link to the contest entry page for the Hunt.
