This tri-annual event was first organized by the amazing 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!
During the Scavenger Hunt, you not only get access to exclusive content from each author (in my case the first page of GODDESS, the final book in the STARCROSSED Trilogy), you also get a clue for the hunt. Add up the clues, and you can enter for our prize--one lucky winner will receive at least one book from each author on the hunt! That's over 50 books!
But play fast: this contest (and all the exclusive bonus material) will only be online for 72 hours!
We like to multitask in YA, so there are TWO contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all! I am a part of the RED TEAM --but there is also a blue team which you can also follow 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 homepage.
Today, I am happy to be hosting Lissa Price...
Here's the lowdown on Lissa.
"Lissa Price’s debut novel STARTERS is an international bestseller published in over thirty countries. Dean Koontz called this YA futuristic thriller “a smart, swift, inventive, altogether gripping story.” The LA Times said it is “Dystopian sci-fi at its best,” and “Readers who have been waiting for a worthy successor to ‘The Hunger Games’ will find it here.” Nominated for a YALSA award, STARTERS was a Barnes & Noble pick of the month and is one of ten books on the Best of the Year lists from Amazon and Chapters/Indigo."
Here's a brief description of STARTERS.
In a future Los Angeles, becoming someone else is now possible. Sixteen-year-old Callie discovers the Body Bank where teens rent their bodies to seniors who want to be young again. But when her neurochip malfunctions, she wakes up in the mansion of her rich renter and finds she is going out with a senator’s grandson. It’s a fairy-tale new life, until she discovers her renter’s deadly plan.
