YA Scavenger Hunt FALL 2016!

It's that time of year again!! When we all go crazy for a few days, trying to win piles of awesome books! This year, I'm also doing my own personal giveaway, so make sure to read all the way to the VERY BOTTOM of the post for your chance to win a signed copy of one of my books! (You get to choose which one!) 





(You can win one of these!! Make sure to go all the way to the bottom!)





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 signed 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!


Directions: Below, you'll notice that I've listed my favorite number. Collect the favorite numbers of all the authors on the Orange 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 Sunday October 9, at noon Pacific Time. Entries sent without the correct number or without contact information will not be considered.

Here's a little trivia for you - my all time FAVORITE number has always been 21!!!






Today I am hosting the lovely, talented (and my agency sis):

Julie Eshbaugh!!!


Julie Eshbaugh once produced an online video series for teens which received several honors from the Webby Awards. Now, she focuses her time on writing. Her debut YA novel, IVORY AND BONE, was released by HarperTeen in June 2016. Its sequel will follow in 2017.

You can buy IVORY AND BONE by clicking HERE!! 

You know you want this gorgeous cover on your bookshelves! (Not to mention to read the awesome story inside!) 




Here's what it's about: 
Hunting, gathering, and keeping his family safe—that’s the life seventeen-year-old Kol knows. Then bold, enigmatic Mya arrives from the south with her family, and Kol is captivated. He wants her to like and trust him, but any hopes of impressing her are ruined when he makes a careless—and nearly grave—mistake. However, there’s something more to Mya’s cool disdain…a history wrought with loss that comes to light when another clan arrives. With them is Lo, an enemy from Mya’s past who Mya swears has ulterior motives.

As Kol gets to know Lo, tensions between Mya and Lo escalate until violence erupts. Faced with shattering losses, Kol is forced to question every person he’s trusted. One thing is for sure: this was a war that Mya or Lo—Kol doesn’t know which—had been planning all along.


And now to the REALLY fun part - the bonus content! Julie has picked out a dream cast for the characters in her book, and WOW. I think she did an awesome job. What do you say??


 Amber Midthunder as Mya

 Booboo Stewart as Kol


Qorianka Kilcher as Lo


See?? I told you! SO awesome. Thanks, Julie! 
You can find Julie on Twitter: @JulieEshbaugh





AND NOW...for my personal giveaway! 

All you have to do is comment and tell me which book of mine you want signed and mailed to you if you win, and you're entered. There are also extra options if you want a better chance at winning!

I would like a copy of Defy because I haven't started this series yet :( It is on my TBR list, though!

Becky Thompson said...

I'd want to win DEFY (the first one) -- it's been on my TBR for ages, but I've not managed to find it at my library or local used book store and sadly I can't really afford to buy new. Plus, I like to own the beginnings of series so I can lend them to my friends!

(my entry form just says "Becky" but it's linked to this email address.)

Amber W said...

I'd probably want to win Defy! I have actually never read any of your books and just came to know of you as an author through this giveaway, so I figure it would be a good book to start with!

Hannah M said...

I haven't read Endure yet, and it's the only hardback in the series I don't have, so I would choose that one! Thanks so much for the giveaway!!!

Lisa Markson said...

Great giveaway would love endure

Zoe Lin said...

You're a new author to me so I guess it'll be logical to start from the first book, Defy.
(count me out if the giveaway's not INT)

Samantha Stewart said...

I would pick a signed copy of Endure. I absolutely love this series, so I'd love to have a copy of the final book signed.

I want to win the first book. Defy.

Shannon Fay said...

I would want to win Ignite, because I already have Defy.

Although my copy is paperback, so if you gave away a hardcover copy, I suppose I would have to go out and get a hardcover copy of Defy, because I like my series to all match. it drives me nuts if they don't, because I'm kind of neurotic, so I have been known to purchase multiple copies of the same book out of OCD-like reasons...

Shai Villanueva said...

I'd really love to win Defy! I've heard so many good things about your book so I really want to read it!
