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!
Go to the YA Scavenger Hunt page to find out all about the hunt. There are SIX contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all! I am a part of the ORANGE TEAM--but there is also a red team, a gold team, a blue team, a red team, and an indie team for a chance to win a whole different set of signed 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.

Today, I am hosting Jessica Souders, author of REVELATIONS on my website for the YA Scavenger Hunt!
J.A. SOUDERS is the author of the Elysium Chronicles (including RENEGADE, A DARK GRAVE, and REVELATIONS) and lives in the land of sunshine and palm trees where she spends her time writing about the monsters under the bed, day dreaming about living in an underwater colony, and failing miserably at playing video games.
Find out more information about Jessica and her books over at her website: http://jasouders.com/books/
EXCLUSIVE CONTENT Jessica is offering you a preview of the e-short Elysium Chronicle Novella RISE that's releasing later this month.
To read it, click here and enter the password:Timothy. Don't delay because this content will only be available for the duration of the hunt.
As an additional perk, she's also offering a glimpse of the new cover for Rebellion. Gorgeous, right?
And don't forget to enter the contest for a chance to win a ton of signed books by me, and many, many more! Look hard and you'll find an exclusive sneak peek at my 2015 book WHAT REMAINS. To enter, you need to know that my favorite number is 17. Add up all the favorite numbers of the authors on the orange team and you'll have all the secret code to enter for the grand prize!
Unrelated to the hunt are two web contests going on for my books. Enter to win a copy of THESE GENTLE WOUNDS over here or take a look at the cover reveal of WHAT REMAINS, and enter to win one of two copies here.
