Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who participated in the YA Summer Scavenger Hunt and in particular those who took my quiz and entered my humble little contest on this blog. I was truly bowled over by the responses. There sure are a lot of cats, wolves, toads, kangaroos and so much more out there.
Sooo, I’ve decided to start a little club for those who would like to know more about the day-to-day happenings at P.A.W.S. If you would like to be part of it. Hop over to Facebook and join P.A.W.S. People.
And now for the WINNERS!
Our GRAND PRIZE winner is Donovan a bold eagle who wins a set of FIVE books.
Congratulations Donovan – you get choose if you would prefer audio books or ebooks for your collection.

Hi folks – I’ve got a lot of cool stuff coming up this week, so wanted to give you all a heads up. Firstly anyone here solve Cryptic Crosswords? If so, head on over to 1Across which is running a contest this week with a prize of Paws 4 Logic, the puzzle book created by me and my son, Joey.
Next come join me tomorrow – Monday 29th May – at 8:30 pm (CT) at the Science Fiction and Fantasy Author and Artist Faire. And stick around all week to meet oodles of awesome sci-fi and fantasy authors.
Did we just say Awesome? Well if you like awesome indie authors you’re going to love the AweThors – come meet us on Tuesday May 30 and help D.R. Perry celebrate 1000 likes! I’ll be hosting at this one at 9:00 pm (CT), but you’re definitely going to want to come early to this one to catch all the fabulous AweThors.
The third Facebook event I’m part of this week is a celebration for the release of Megan Crewe’s BEAST. If you like you’re YA dark you’re going to have to check this one out. I’ll be hanging out here at on Thurs June 1st at 5:30pm (CT). Come on by!
Also on June 1st I’m excited to announce that I’m part of not one, but TWO online scavenger hunts. Firstly there’s this one. But you’re going to have to visit Doris, the Vacuu-Droid with an attitude for more details!
And secondly there’s the YA Summer Scavenger Hunt – starting June 1st. My secret word and bonus contest will be right here on this blog. Click the banner below for the master list of participants – and there are a lot of them!
And last, but not least to celebrate this week of awesomeness I have Tea & Dark Chocolate on sale everywhere for just 99 cents!
This June, I’m thrilled to be part of a massive young adult scavenger hunt sponsored by the Alliance of Young Adult Authors . This is a chance to meet some new authors, grab a bunch of free books, and sign up to win a whole bunch of epic prizes!
In addition to the $500 grand prize, each author will be giving away lots of free books and cool stuff. Over on this blog I’ll be giving away a set of audio books of P.A.W.S. (narrated by Priscilla Finch) and the upcoming audio book of Argentum (narrated by the ever awesome George Sirois.)
When the scavenger hunt begins (June 1st) all you have to do is visit each site below in order and write down the special word to reconstruct the story. You can enter any of the giveaways or offers on anybody’s site, or just grab the special word and move on. I’ll add a link soon where you can enter for the grand prize when you have the full story.
Each author will be given a special keyword, which will be bolded and all caps like this: BUTTERFLIES.
All you have to do is visit all the author’s sites in this order, write down the special keywords to discover the short story, then enter the giveaway with the completed short story HERE (link will be posted soon).
There will be one main giveaway for the main prize, but most of the participating authors will also have smaller giveaways for free books, amazon credit and author swag, so make sure you read their post carefully to see what else they’re offering while you’re on their site for the keyword.
