YA WINTER SCAVENGER HUNT & A GIVEAWAY!


Welcome to the YA WINTER SCAVENGER HUNT, organized by Colleen Houck, author of the fantastic and best-selling TIGER'S CURSE series! Seriously, when I think about all the work Colleen has put into organizing this event, it is mind-boggling. I'm delighted to be a part of it :)

So now, what is the hunt all about and how can you participate?

On this hunt you will be able to gain access to exclusive bonus material, sign up for giveaways, and get an all access pass to top secret insider information.

As an extra bonus we’ve put together a puzzle with one keyword found on each website. Complete it and you will be eligible for a fantastic GRAND PRIZE which will include signed editions of books, signed bookmarks, jewelry, and many more exclusive gifts with at least one gift from EVERY AUTHOR!

Scavenger Hunt Puzzle

Directions: You'll need to unscramble a bunch of words which can be found here. Go through each blog on the scavenger hunt and search for keywords, one on each blog, that will be highlighted in RED. When you are finished, fill out the Google form here.

Rules: To be eligible for the grand prize, you must submit this filled in form before noon on Dec 4th Pacific Time. All the keywords must be in the correct place, and you must include your full name and address. Entries sent in without name and address will not be considered!

FEATURING THE AWESOME LEAH BOBET!


BIO:
Leah Bobet lives in a hundred-year-old house in Toronto, plants gardens in alleyways, and wears feathers in her hair. ABOVE is her first novel.



WHAT ABOVE IS ALL ABOUT:
Matthew has loved Ariel from the moment he found her in the tunnels, her bee's wings falling away. They live in Safe, an underground refuge for those fleeing the city Above--like Whisper, who speaks to ghosts, and Jack Flash, who can shoot lightning from his fingers.

But one terrifying night, an old enemy invades Safe with an army of shadows, and only Matthew, Ariel, and a few friends escape Above. As Matthew unravels the mystery of Safe's history and the shadows' attack, he realizes he must find a way to remake his home--not just for himself, but for Ariel, who needs him more than ever before.
