YA Scavenger Hunt - ONE DAY ONLY

Okay, so today is the Scavenger Hunt of all scavenger hunts. Thus the capital letters. There is some exclusive one-day only material right here on our blog, and there’s a link at the bottom that will direct you to the next stop on the hunt.

First off, if you don't know us, we are sister-writers (not to be confused with sister-wives) and co-authors of The Liar Society. If you like pink hair, secret societies, mysteries and Bravo television and/or read US Weekly on a semi-regular basis, we'll probably get along famously. If not, well, you've been warned.


As part of this Scavenger-Hunt-of-Awesome, we're giving away a signed copy of The Liar Society! Just leave a comment on this post to enter. Or don't. If you hate pink hair, secret societies, mysteries, Bravo television and US Weekly. We'll totally understand either way.

Ok, back to the scavenger hunt, today you'll be reading exclusive bonus material, signing up for giveaways, and getting an all access pass to top secret insider information. This fabulous sneak peek into what’s coming up in YA literature is for one day only! Get. Excited.

As an extra bonus we’ve put together a puzzle with one keyword found on each website. Complete it and you will be eligible for a fantastic GRAND PRIZE which will include signed editions of books, signed bookmarks, jewelry, and many more exclusive gifts with at least one from EVERY AUTHOR!

Scavenger Hunt Puzzle:
Directions: Search for keywords, one on each website that will be highlighted in red, and insert them into the puzzle. Then fill out the Google form here.

Rules: To be eligible for the grand prize, you must submit this filled in puzzle before midnight on August 1st Pacific Time. All the keywords must be in the correct place, and the form must be completely filled out.

Welcome fans of young adult literature! Don’t forget to _______ up in time to join our special event! In ____________ you roll the dice and, like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get. Our scavenger hunt is very similar. Surprises wait around every corner. Turn one page and you’re chasing a _________ through a _________ _____________. Turn another and you are being ________ by a _______ which leaves your heart ________. YA ________s are full of ___________ heroes who must ___________ themselves for the greater good. Some of the characters travel through ______ or have a _________ __________. If there is one thing YA books have taught us, it’s that if you leave your ___________ keep an eye out for a patrolling ________. They’re very dangerous. Maybe not so frightening as a ____________, but still you should be careful. Also beware lest you become __________ by vampires. ______________ one is a different story. Just remember that bite has ___________ ramifications and that afterwards the sun can ______ you unless you get bitten by a glittering type. Whether you like dark, paranormal, romance, fantasy, ___________, Sci-Fi, or a combination of those, we’ve got something for you.

We think that each fan is a __________ and we love you all!


As if that weren't enough, we're hosting Inara Scott (holy awesome!).
Click here to read her super-secret content from The Talents.



 Did you catch the word in red? It's quite....POWER-ful. I know, I know, we're hilarious. Even more exciting, you can enter to win a copy of The Marked. Details for the contest can be found here: http://inarascott.tumblr.com/.


Anywho, hope you copied and pasted that purple paragraph up there
, and that you'll visit all the blogs and websites today, looking for the red words to complete the scavenger hunt. If you want to read a super-secret scene that we cut from The Lies That Bind, click here. Also, Beth Revis is awesome. But you probably already knew that.

And then you can enter to win the grand prize that will include something from every author in the hunt!

Oh, and here's the link you need to take you to the next blog on the YA Scavenger Hunt of Awesome!


Happy hunting!!!

Well I'm now stumped on this hunt becuase I can't get past this page because I can't see a red word ANYWHERE on the post?!? Am I going blind??

Jenn H said...

I love your procrastination posts. Replace 'novel-writing' with 'completing ridiculous projects' and you pretty much have my entire college experience.

I can't wait to read The Liar Society. You had me at pink hair, secret societies, and Bravo television.

Sarah Kalaitzidis said...

I really can't see a red word but I will continue to hunt for them!!!!!
