1-Day YA Scavenger Hunt: AUGUST 1

As if the summer weren’t already fun-packed enough, there will be a ONE DAY ONLY scavenger hunt taking place right here on the internet. Mark August 1 in your calendars, because it’s going to be one HOT SUMMER DAY!!!

THE PARTICIPANTS: YA authors Josephine Angelini, Tera Lynn Childs, Angela Corbett, Kady Cross, Heather Davis, DJ Desmyter, Bree Despain, Leigh Fallon, Marley Gibson, Abbi Glines, Colleen Houck, Tara Hudson, Elana Johnson, Sophie Jordan, Myra McEntire, Alexandra Monir, Lisa Nowak, Amy Plum, Beth Revis, Lisa and Laura Roecker, Inara Scott, Jeri Smith-Ready, Lani Woodland.

THE BONUS MATERIAL: each author is offering something REALLY special – a bonus chapter, news on an upcoming book, a cover reveal, or another exclusive peek inside their world. But, as I mentioned, it’s one day only! All of the bonus material heads back into the vault on Aug 2nd. My bonus material: a trio of DIE FOR ME outtakes!

THE LOOT: along the way, there will be fabulous surprises and giveaways! I will be donating a signed book as part of the Grand Prize.

And as my personal prize, I have a gift-bag including:

1. a signed DIE FOR ME bookmark

2. an Eiffel Tower + heart cell phone charm

And 3. the never-used cover for the original American hardback (showing Kate-in-a-Boat). This is a collector’s item – only a few exist. And I only have 2 left (one is for me!).

HOW IT WORKS: come back here to my blog on August 1 to find my surprise guest-author’s bonus material. Then follow the clue I give you to go to the next scavenger hunt location. At each stop there will be a code word marked in red. You have to have each of the code words in the hunt in order to solve the puzzle and win the grand prize. Fabulous surprises wait around every corner!

Join us as we celebrate what’s new in YA fiction!

* A huge thanks to organizer Colleen Houck for coming up with such a fab idea!

  16. by :/ - On August 1, 2011

    i can’t find the word either
    i looks like amy plum is releasing the YA hunt material (including the red word) at midnight on Aug 1, but that doesn’t help b/c the deadline for the hunt IS midnight Aug 1…

  17. by Kat - On August 1, 2011

    Same here!! ): I can’t find the word anywhere and I’m trying to enter the main contest. Please help!!

  18. by Courtney - On August 1, 2011

    I can’t find the word and the link doesn’t take me to the next author’s website. It doesn’t take me anywhere. Is this happening to anyone else?

  19. by Alexanne - On August 1, 2011

    @ Courtney (and everyone else having Scavenger Hunt issues): YES! I am experiencing the same problem as you! I cannot find the red word nor the link to the next page!
    What’s up widdiss?!

  20. by Danielle - On August 1, 2011

    The contest should start around midnight in the Pacific timezone. It may be midnight for some people in the world but not for others yet. I hope this helps. 🙂

  21. by Tatiana - On August 1, 2011

    Amy is not the only author who seams to be confused about when to post the next clue…

  22. by jessica - On August 1, 2011

    hey I tweeted colleen houck and she said amy just hasn’t posted yet!!

  23. by Estefany Franco - On August 1, 2011

    Been waiting for her to post but it hasn’t showed up yet? Seems like other authors have the same problem. What’s going on??

  24. by Christina Bodden - On August 1, 2011

    I don’t know what’s going on. I guess we just have to wait and see if she will post later on.

  25. by amy - On August 1, 2011

    Hi all! My material is live now – I was told to make it live at midnight Pacific time, so sorry you had to wait!

  26. by Joanna Walker - On August 2, 2011
