Thank you so much for playing along, everyone! I hope you had a great time. And good luck with the grand prize(s)! 🙂

For the mini-giveaway, I used the random number generator to pull six numbers from all 103 comments.

Here are the winners:
#5 Melissa M.
#82 Dana
#16 Katherine Adams
#103 Tamara
#50 Leann
#61 Diana Terrado

I’ll be emailing the winners today to get their mailing addresses and find out which book they prefer (QUEEN OF THE DEAD or BODY & SOUL). As stated before, winners have 24 hours to respond and claim their prizes. 🙂

Welcome to YA Scavenger Hunt (YASH)! This 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 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 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 April 6, noon Pacific Time. Entries sent without the correct number or without contact information will not be considered.


Today I’m excited to be hosting Debra Driza! She’s the author of the MILA 2.0 series and the owner of the messiest purse on the planet, aka: the black hole of doom. She thinks bow ties are cool and when she grows up, she wants to be Veronica Mars. (Me, too!)

Debra’s newest book, MILA 2.0: RENEGADE, will be out on May 13, 2014. Check out the gorgeous cover below as well as the description:

“There is no one left for Mila to trust. Except for a boy she barely knows.

But Hunter has no idea who—and what—Mila really is. She can’t bear to reveal her secret, even though he’s unwittingly joined her search for Richard Grady, a man who may know more details of Mila’s complicated past.

Yet the road to the truth is more dangerous than ever. With General Holland and the Vita Obscura scouring the earth for her whereabouts, Mila must rely on her newfound android abilities to protect herself and Hunter from imminent harm. Still, embracing her identity as a machine leads her to question the state of her humanity—as well as Hunter’s real motives.”

Learn more about MILA 2.0: RENEGADE on Debra’s site or pre-order it now.


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