Welcome to My Leg of the YA Scavenger Hunt!!
On this hunt, you not only get access to exclusive content from each participating YA author, you also get a secret number. Add up the numbers, and enter it for a chance to win a major prize–one lucky winner will receive at least one signed book from each author on my team in the hunt! But play fast: this contest (and all the exclusive bonus material) will only be online until noon PST on Sunday, April 7th!
You can start right here or you can also go to the YA Scavenger Hunt homepage to find out all about the hunt. There are TWO contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or both! I am a part of the RED TEAM–but there is also a blue team and if you do the blue hunt you'll have 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, see the full list of prizes up for grabs, or if you get lost along the way, go to the YA Scavenger Hunt homepage.
Directions: Below, you'll notice that I've listed my favorite number. Collect the favorite numbers of all the authors on the red team, and then add them up (don't worry, you can use a calculator!). Hint: the secret number is highlighted in RED.
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 December 2nd, at noon Pacific Time. Entries sent without the correct number or without contact information will not be considered.
HINT HINT HINT about my exclusive content: Okay, it's not a hint, I'll just tell you what it is. Somewhere on this hunt is a lost Cas Lowood story. It might be the last Cas Lowood story. And of course, Thomas and Carmel are in it too. Also, I'm doing a bonus giveaway at the bottom of this post.
Anyway, today Elizabeth was kind enough to share some exclusive deleted scenes from PHOENIX, the sequel to BLACK CITY. Here's a bit about the book:
Want to buy it now? Sure you do. Here's a convenient link.
And here's a bit about Elizabeth Richards:
Kept you waiting long enough? Fine, whatever, OKAY!! Exclusive Content Below!!!
Alas, the YASH is over, and I had to take down the tantalizing deleted scenes from PHOENIX. Good luck to all who entered, and thanks for playing!
Now on to the winning! And the bonus contest!
And now, if I haven't already lost you to the Scavenger hunt frenzy and you're already knocking down Kathleen's door, in which case I'm talking to myself and can say whatever the H I want, how about a bonus contest? I don't know why I chose green. It looks weird.
Want a signed special UK edition of Girl of Nightmares? The paperback with Anna in the red dress? I'll give away three!! Just leave me a comment or tweet me @KendareBlake. I have to limit this one to US only. But the YA Scavenger Hunt copy is of course international, as it is an international contest.
