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!
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.
But wait there’s more!
As I’ve had so many entries I’ve decided to award 12 runner up prizes – one for each of the P.A.W.S. animals represented in the quiz. Each of these winners gets to choose one of the titles above in either audio or ebook.
CAT – Kelly Jean Taylor
WOLF – Kelly Stepp
EAGLE – Michaela

SNAKE – Angela Zhang
HORSE – Melodie Luckett
PIG – Melody

Congratulations to everyone. Look for a message in your inbox sometime in the next couple of days. Thanks again for playing!
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.
