YASH – Red Team

Welcome to YA Scavenger Hunt! This bi-annual event was first organized by author Colleen Houck as a way to give readers a chance to gain access to exclusive bonus material from their favorite authors…and a chance to win some awesome prizes! At this hunt, you not only get access to exclusive content from each author, you also get a clue for the hunt. Add up the clues, and you can enter for our prize–one lucky winner will receive one book from each author on the hunt in my team! But play fast: this contest (and all the exclusive bonus material) will only be online for 72 hours!

Red Team

Go to the YA Scavenger Hunt page to find out all about the hunt. There are eight contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all! I am a part of the RED TEAM–but there is also a red team, an orange team, a gold team, a green team, a teal team, a blue team, a purple team, and a pink team for a chance to win a whole different set of books!

If you’d like to find out more about the hunt, see links to all the authors participating, and see the full list of prizes up for grabs, go to the YA Scavenger Hunt page.

Directions: Below, you’ll notice that I’ve hidden my favorite number. Collect the favorite numbers of all the authors on the blue team, and then add them up (don’t worry, you can use a calculator!).
Entry Form: Once you’ve added up all the numbers, make sure you fill out the form here to officially qualify for the grand prize. Only entries that have the correct number will qualify.
Rules: Open internationally, anyone below the age of 18 should have a parent or guardian’s permission to enter. To be eligible for the grand prize, you must submit the completed entry form by DATE, at noon Pacific Time. Entries sent without the correct number or without contact information will not be considered.
Today, I am hosting Eric Lindstrom on my website for the YA Scavenger Hunt!
Eric Lindstrom writes Young Adult novels but has worked in the interactive entertainment industry for years as a creative director, game designer, writer, and combinations of all three. He also raised children, which led to becoming a school volunteer, then a substitute teacher, then a part time kindergarten teacher, then getting a teaching credential, and most importantly the discovery that Young Adult books are awesome. It’s pretty much all he ever reads, and now writes, in his house near the beach on the west coast, with his wife and, yes, cats.
Find out more information by checking out the author website or find more about the author’s book here!
Parker Grant doesn’t need 20/20 vision to see through you. That’s why she created the Rules: Don’t treat her differently because she’s blind, and never take advantage. There will be no second chances. So when Scott Kilpatrick, the boy who broke her heart years before, suddenly reappears in her life, Parker shuns him hard. She has enough on her mind, like trying out for the track team, doling out tough-love advice to her painfully naive classmates, and giving herself gold stars for every day she hasn’t cried since her dad’s death. But avoiding her past soon proves impossible, and the more Parker learns what really happened—both with Scott and her dad—the more she sees that she can’t run from her heartbreak forever.



What fascinating research! Now, you just need to know three things to continue the hunt.

1. You need to know that my favorite number is 9!

2. You need to know that I am running a giveaway here. I am giving away a copy of my second novel INTERFERENCE. All you have to do is comment below to win. My book is set in fall in West Texas, a perfect time for Frito Pie (see my YASH post if you’ve never had it). What Fall treat do you look forward to? Contest is open internationally.

3. The last thing you need to know – the next author is the fabulous Jessica Brody!
Happy Hunting!

  1. Love Frito pie, but I can literally eat that year round. I love pumpkin treats like blizzards from DQ and milkshakes from Culvers. And I also love going to the store the day after Halloween and buying cheap candy. 😀

  2. Hot chocolate! This is the season when it finally starts feeling like curling up with a good book and sipping hot chocolate with whipped cream of course!!!

  3. I recently moved from Texas to Boston (yay Texas! and as a TCU graduate… GO FROGS), and I have been introduced to cider donuts. I’m not sure how I made it this far without them.

  4. Hot chocolate all the way!!!! One of my favorite treats and now is the time I can start having it! Yum!!! Love this time of year!

  5. Cold weather and delicious caramel coffee to go with it. Fall is the absolute best time of year for caramel and just in general.

  6. I’m a simple girl I guess. My fave fall treat is a good book and a big cup of hot cocoa to go with it. There is absolutely nothing better than being snuggled up someplace soft, under a nice cozy blanket, reading a good book, and sipping a warm cup of cocoa. Especially if it’s a chilly day out. I love this cozy scenario even more if I can hear the wind whipping back and forth outside and watch it stirring up leaves and whatnot. Makes my snuggling even more fun.

  7. I do love a good Walking Taco, but I think my favorite fall treat is fresh Apple Cider right from the local orchard. I like to warm it on the stove with a few extra spices and enjoy from a favorite mug.

    1. Your hanging mini pandas are so cute!! And I love your other pandas and mice, too. Have you ever made any like the Gund Snuffles bear? My family is obsessed with snuffles and I ca3n t find Christmas Snuffles ornaments to buy, so maybe I need to make some!

  8. Well it may be due to the fact the I am not American, but I love tea along with my grandmother’s mekici. These are like pancakes, and you can eat them with nutella or some jam delicious for the fall season 🙂

  9. I love fall because it’s the only time of year that my mom makes her pumpkin roll. It’s literally the most amazing thing on the planet and I can’t wait for her to make it again this year!

  10. I’m from NZ where its temperate so we don’t have the changing of the leaves like elsewhere. I guess I love hot chocolates and cake as a favourite treat.

  11. so many great foods associated with fall – caramel apples, hot chocolate, warm cider (with a little something extra added!), apple donuts! Plus Soup!!! as the weather gets cooler, I look forward to having soup more often!

    1. I commonly forget to take my arthritis meaiodticn. By the time my knees start hurting, it’s too late. I’m at work and it’s at home. Of course, when my knees are acting up first thing in the morning I’m much better at remembering to take my meds. To me avoiding pain is a great incentive to take care of myself. But then, I’m not suffering from a life threatening condition like lupus. You would think staying alive is a great incentive to stay on proper meds.

  12. I literally had to google “fall treats” bc I have NO IDEA what is a fall treat as we don’t have fall here. It’s just summer all year round, and the two to three months of monsoon. Ah but brownies look good. Pie too, but maybe not pumpkin pie…

  13. Oh my goodness the Frito Pie post cracked me up! Hmm…I am not that into Fall food per se, though I am always super excited for pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving and for eggnog on October 1st.

  14. Never heard of Frito Pie but it sounds so good tough! I saw the recipe through yash and i found it cool! Fave fall food? Not so sure… apples are awesome! Is that considered? Lol!

  15. Fall is a time for pumpkin spice nuts and white hot chocolate! I try to eat healthy but at the same time I’m a total foodie and love trying new things.

    1. Medicare Fraud will Franchise like Prohibition converting to State Stores; Big Government already made money off the Health Care Experiments hanveod-r-fist; Handing this Ponzi Scheme over to the States just allows Governors to make Revenue like a Lottery from legalized Gambling, and Stem Cell Reseach will have restrictions lifted like a Bush Tax Cut.

  16. Here in Australia Fall isn’t really a big deal. I’d definitely love to visit the States and experience it for real someday. And try all the treats! There seems to be a lot of apple, pumpkin, caramel and spices involved with Fall treats and I can get behind all that! 😉

    1. Senki sem gondol bele, hogy BÁRMILYEN kormánynak és a változatlan lakosságnak mivel kell szembenézni a következÅ‘ években.Mert ha be¡koondglnÃlne, vagdalhatnánk el a gyerekeink nyakát, mi meg mehetnénk a Dunának, átengedve ezt a kise medanszét valami okosabb fajzatnak.El van kúrva, na!

  17. My absolute favorite fall treat is hot apple cider! I drink a cup every morning and I have no idea what I would do without it. Really enjoyed the recipes related to your book!
