YA Scavenger Hunt

YA Scavenger Hunt


In June, I will be taking part in a massive scavenger hunt sponsored by An Alliance of Young Adult Authors. This is an opportunity to discover new authors, grab a bunch of free books for your summer reading, and sign up to win a whole bunch of epic prizes!

Are you ready to join the hunt?


The Scavenger Hunt will begin on June 1st!

Each author will be given a special keyword, which will be bolded and all caps like this: BUTTERFLIES.

All you have to do is visit all the author’s sites in order, write down the special keywords to discover the short story, then enter the giveaway with the completed short story HERE.

There will be one main giveaway for the main prize, but most of the participating authors will also have smaller giveaways so make sure you read all their post carefully to see what else they’re offering while you’re on their site for the keyword.
