ETA: The YA Scavenger Hunt is now closed. Thank you all so much for playing along! I had so much fun, and I hope you did too. ๐Ÿ™‚ Grand prize winners will be announced on the YA Scavenger Hunt site. I’ll be posting the 3 winners for the signed copies of The Ghost and the Goth here on Monday, and I’ll email you if you’ve provided your address. The winning names will also be up on the YA Scavenger Hunt site on Tuesday, too, if it’s easier just to check one place. Remember, you’ll have about 24 hours to respond. I’ll draw new names on Wednesday if I haven’t heard from a winner. ๐Ÿ˜€

Thank you all again! This was my first experience with the Hunt, and it was a blast because of all of you. Hope to see you all on the next YA Scavenger Hunt! ๐Ÿ˜€

Welcome to YA Scavenger Hunt! This tri-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 theYA Scavenger Hunt page to find out all about the hunt. 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 for a chance to win a whole different set of signed books, one from each author!

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.


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!).

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 August 5, at noon Pacific Time. Entries sent without the correct number or without contact information will not be considered.


Today, I’m so excited to be hosting TARA FULLER for the YA Scavenger Hunt!

Tara Fuller writes novels. Some about grim reapers”โ€น. Some about witches. All of course are delightfully full of teen angst and kissing. Tara grew up in a one stop light town in Oklahoma where once upon a time she stayed up with a flash light reading RL Stine novels and only dreamed of becoming a writer. She has a slight obsession with music and a shameless addiction for zombie fiction, Mystery Science Theater, and black and white mochas. Tara no longer lives in a one stop light town. Now she lives with her family in a slightly larger town in North Carolina where they have at least three stoplights.

Check out Tara’s website for more info or learn more about her book here!
