Young Adult Scavenger Hunt Fun!

April 3, 2018 Uncategorized

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 SIX contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all! I am a part of the PINK TEAM–but there is also a red team, a gold team, an orange team, a green team, and a blue 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 listed my favorite number. Collect the favorite numbers of all the authors on the pink 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.

Today, I am hosting EM Fitch on my website for the YA Scavenger Hunt!


E.M. Fitch seeks to explore the deliciously forbidden secrets that can be discovered on moonlit nights in the hidden alcoves of the forest, beyond the veil of reality, and within the guarded corners of our hearts. Her Dark Fantasy YA novel, OF THE TREES, was inspired by ghost stories and the unnerving musings of W.B. Yeats; and its sequel AT WOODS EDGE was recently released from Month9Books. She hopes you’ll join her in the deep, dark woods.

It’s only a matter of time before he gets what he’s come for.

Cassie Harris has turned her back on best friend Laney Blake. She had no other choice. Laney is one of them now, a creature of the trees. As Cassie’s senior year wears on, the woods grow quiet, snow blankets the ground, and the murderous beings who once taunted her have drifted away like the brittle leaves of Fall. Though the woods no longer stir with rushed whispers and wind-blown laughter, the fear remains.

No one understands this fear better than Cassie. She wishes she could tell them not to worry. After all, the shape-shifting men of the trees and the women who travel with them, seeking out girls to abduct from carnivals, are gone. And the one that stayed behind? He isn’t interested in anyone but her.

Now, Aidan’s interest in Cassie is a chilling reminder of the what lurks at woods edge. He stalks her home, her school, her bedroom. He won’t stop until he can find a way to lure Cassie into the forest to become one with him forever.


At Woods Edge is out now! This second novel in the Of The Trees series takes the tension from the first and twists it together with some urban legend and campfire-tale scares you won’t soon forget. To get me motivated and keep me inspired, I started a mood board over on Pinterest, you can find this content here ( )

But for an exclusive look at the inscriptions used in both Of The Trees and At Woods Edge, check out this private mood board, created only for YASH participants! ( )

Happy hunting!

And don’t forget to enter the contest for a chance to win a ton of books by me, EM Fitch, and more! To enter, you need to know that my favorite number is 67. Add up all the favorite numbers of the authors on the pink team and you’ll have all the secret code to enter for the grand prize!

To keep going on your quest for the hunt, you need to check out the next author! Kim Briggs!
