YA Scavenger Hunt



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 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 EIGHT contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all! I am a part of the PINK TEAM--but there is also a teal team, a purple team, an orange team, a green team, a gold team, a blue team, and a red team for 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, and see the full list of prizes up for grabs, go to the YA Scavenger Hunt page.

SCAVENGER HUNT POST



Today, I am hosting Cidney Swanson on my website for the YA Scavenger Hunt!

Cidney Swanson is an award-winning writer of Young Adult Sci-Fi and Fantasy including The Ripple Trilogy and The Saving Mars Series. SAVING MARS (Kirkus, starred) was named to Kirkus Reviews’ Best of 2012 and was an honor book for the SCBWI Spark Award 2014. When she’s not writing, Cidney is distracted by shiny things such as books with raised foil covers, macarons in jars, and stars set against an inky night sky. She is conversant in the following geekdoms: Star Trek, Shakespeare, and Ballet. Cidney lives in Eugene, Oregon with her husband, three kids, two cats, and entirely too much rain.

Find out more information by checking out the her website or find more about the Saving Mars here!

EXCLUSIVE CONTENT


Jessamyn, a young pilot living on Mars, yearns to fly a ship to Earth, bringing food back as a heroic Mars Raider. When disaster decimates the colony's food supply, she gets the chance. Breaking rules of secrecy and no contact between the estranged Mars colony and Earth, Jess finds an ally in Pavel, nephew to a government official on Earth, but their mutual attraction only makes the choice before her more agonizing: stay and rescue her brother or return and save her planet?

The Bonus Content for Cidney's Mars series is a sneak peak Cover Reveal for Book Five in the SAVING MARS series, STRIKING MARS.



Amazing cover, isn't it? I'm so thrilled to be the one to share it with you all.

I'm also having a special giveaway just for the Scavenger Hunt. Be sure to enter!
