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!
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.

SCAVENGER HUNT POST
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.

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.
CONTINUE THE HUNT
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
