Announcing YASH fall 2018

I’m excited to announce that once more I’ll be participating in the awesome Young Adult Scavenger Hunt along with a whole slew of amazing YA authors and hey I’m on purple team … and purple’s my favorite color.

PURPLE 18

TEAM PURPLE

A.G. HOWARD–C. J. REDWINE–CARLY ANNE WEST–CHANDA STAFFORD–CHELSEA PITCHER–CHRISTY SLOAT–DEBBIE MANBER KUPFER–ERIC LINDSTROM–JC WELKER–JESSICA RUDDICK–JULIA DAY–JULIE ESHBAUGH–KRISTY CENTENO–MACKENZIE FLOHR–MADELINE DYER–MELINDA R.

The YA Scavenger Hunt begins October 2nd and ends on the 7th. Never joined the hunt before? It’s easy. You can start on my website or on the YA Scavenger Hunt website the day of the hunt and then you hop from blog to blog completing one team at a time adding up secret numbers as you go. When you’ve finished one entire team, you enter the total of all the numbers you found for that team on the rafflecopter on the YASH website to try for the grand prize which is one book from every author on that team. You can stop there or try for every team on the hunt. There are loads of giveaways since most authors do their own as well so mark your calendars. The hunt begins soon!

Y is for Yummy and Yuri – Blogging from A to Z

Hi Everyone,

Adana here and we’re nearly at the end of the alphabet – Can you believe it? The last post will appear on Monday.

Today though we focus on the letter Y.

First up we have MY YUMMY CORN written and illustrated by  Surendhra Kumar Padayatchi.

This is a story about a mouse that lived a content life in a corn field being usurped by a city dwelling mouse to enjoy the fruits of an urban living. Did the mouse settle down in the city? What happened after the mouse departed with his new acquaintance?

Pick up your copy in Kindle or paperback today.

Secondly, I’m going to cheat a little. I’d like to introduce you all to YURI SHAMNE. Yuri is an artist and puzzle maker from Russia and he has been providing picture puzzles for Debbie’s puzzle blog, Paws 4 Puzzles, on Wednesdays.

You and children can catch up on all of Yuri’s puzzles so far on this page. I promise you won’t be disappointed.

That’s all for today. Join me on Monday for the letter Z!
