YA Scavenger Hunt (#YASH)


 

 Welcome to YA Scavenger Hunt!  

I'm Jodie Andrefski, and you are currently hunting TEAM GREEN.

About Me

I had a horse named Thunder, which leads into my favorite mythological creature...a pegasus.
I am a sucker for desserts. No, I mean SERIOUSLY.
Coffee comes in close second.
I am afraid of heights.
I am a Netflix binge-watcher. Yes, I admit it. =)

I have a sneak peek of my work-in-progess YA novel hidden somewhere in this blog hop. You can find my CRUSH playlist here. CRUSH is a twisty-turny YA thriller...of course, I had to throw a touch of romance in there too. Keep hunting to find the sneak peek! And as part of the GREEN TEAM, you can enter to win a signed copy of my 5-star rated YA Contemporary novel, SUMMER OF HOPE, along with a ton of other fabulous YA books.


So what exactly is #YASH??
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!

There are EIGHT contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all! I am a part of the GREEN TEAM -- but there is also a pink team, a gold team, an orange team, a teal team, a red team, a purple team, and a blue 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 Prize Page.


How to Play

Directions: Collect the favorite numbers of all the authors on the green team, and then add them up (don't worry, you can use a calculator!). 

Entry Form: Once you've added up all the numbers, make sure you fill out the form here to officially qualify for the grand prize. Only entries that have the correct number 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 10/4/15 at noon Pacific Time. Entries sent without the correct number or without contact information will not be considered.

Today, I am honored to be hosting LISA SCHROEDER on my website for the YA Scavenger Hunt! 

Lisa is the author of over a dozen books for kids and teens, including the YA novels CHASING BROOKLYN, THE DAY BEFORE, THE BRIDGE FROM ME TO YOU, and ALL WE HAVE IS NOW. Her books have earned spots on state reading lists and have been translated into many languages. You can catch her on twitter at @lisa_schroeder.
Find out more information by checking out her author website or
 Buy ALL WE HAVE IS NOW here.

Are you ready for some EXCLUSIVE CONTENT from Lisa Schroeder??


What do you do with your last day on earth?

There are 27 hours and fifteen minutes left until an asteroid strikes North America, and, for Emerson and everyone else who didn't leave, the world will end. But Emerson's world already ended when she ran away from home last year. Since then she has lived on the streets, relying on her wits and her friend Vince to help her find places to sleep and food to eat.

The city's quieter now that most people are gone, and no one seems to know what to do as the end approaches. But then Emerson and Vince meet Carl, who tells them that he has been granting people's wishes. He gave his car away so a woman could take her son to see the ocean for the first time, and he gives Emerson and Vince all the money he has in his wallet.

Suddenly this last day seems full of possibility. Emerson and Vince can grant a lot of wishes in 27 hours -- maybe even their own.


Now are you ready for something super awesome?? Lisa's book trailer for ALL WE HAVE IS NOW is brand new and hot off the press. (Well, hot off of Stop Motion Studio, anyway!)  =) It's totally unique and you definitely want to check it out.
