Spring YA Scavenger Hunt!!!


Welcome to YA Scavenger Hunt! I'm Angela Corbett, author of Eternal Starling. If you're looking for the exclusive Eternal Starling deleted scene, it's on one of the Team Yellow blogs, so keep hunting!

This tri-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! On 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 TWENTY signed books, one 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 THREE contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter all three! I am a part of the YELLOW TEAM--but there is also a red team and a blue team. You can enter all three contests--which has a total prize bucket of SIXTY 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 homepage.

Scavenger Hunt Puzzle

Directions: Hidden within my post is a single letter that is YELLOW. Make a note of that letter! It's a part of a scrambled phrase. When you go to all the author sites of the yellow team, you'll have all the letters you need to enter the contest. 

Entry Form: Once you piece together all the clues to the hunt, make sure you fill out the form here to officially qualify for the grand prize. Only entries that have the completed phrase 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 noon, PST, April 1, 2012. Entries sent without the correct puzzle code or without contact information will not be considered.

Today, I'm thrilled to be hosting Tish Thawer!



Tish Thawer is currently working on The Rose Trilogy, a paranormal romance that features a young woman named Rose, and Christian, the vampire who loves her.

She's a Shelfari and Goodreads Librarian, and before becoming a writer she worked as a computer consultant, a photographer, and graphic designer. She also operates a custom glass etching business, in addition to being a wife and mother of 3 wonderful children.

Tish is the author of Scent of a White Rose


A paranormal romance that entices with a heroine that isn't quite what she seems, a vampire whose love story is filled with dark surprises, and a vampire clan whose Sire has lost the ability to inflict "the change".

A vampire's love...
An innocent's guilt...
A secret no one could've imagined.

~ ROSE ~
I'm Rose Reynolds. I have recently lost my Mom in a "freak accident". Now everyone sees me as an innocent girl...a “white Rose”. But I have a secret that no one can imagine. I'm not as innocent as everyone thinks...
                                                
~ CHRISTIAN ~
I'm Christian and I'm in love with Rose. I also have a secret as old as time. I'm a vampire. No, she doesn't know... yet. But when our new Sire is revealed, I'll petition them to change her. Because truly, I can't live without her....

Find out more information about Tish and the The Rose Trilogy! 




TISH'S EXCLUSIVE CONTENT


In Blood of a Red Rose emotions are running high. Rose and Christian love each other irrevocably and want to be together forever. Or at least that was the plan. But as events unfold, secrets are revealed and things heat up, they continue to keep their personal feelings to themselves. Read the letters below to get a taste of what might happen in book two of The Rose Trilogy.



Save these private letters and then see if you can find the scenes within Blood of a Red Rose where they were actually written.

Weren't the letters great?!? Thanks so much to Tish for providing the exclusive content!


While you're here, you can also enter to win a personal contest I'm holding. I'm giving away a set of Eternal Starling earrings! Enter my Rafflecopter contest below!
