Welcome to YA Scavenger Hunt! 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! 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!
Go to the YA Scavenger Hunt page to find out all about the hunt. There are TWO contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all! I am a part of the RED TEAM--but there is also a blue team for a chance to win a whole different set of twenty-five 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.

Today, I am hosting Alyxandra Harvey on my website for the YA Scavenger Hunt!
Alyxandra Harvey is the author of The Drake Chronicles, Haunting Violet, and Stolen Away. She loves medieval dresses, used to be able to recite all of The Lady of Shalott by Tennyson, and has been accused, more than once, of being born in the wrong century. She believes this to be mostly true except for the fact that she really likes running water, women’s rights, and ice cream. She lives in Ontario, Canada with her husband and assorted dogs.
Find out more information by checking out her website or find more about The Drake Chronicles and her other books here!
Blood Prophecy: In the thrilling conclusion of the Drake Chronicles, love and loyalties will be tested …
Can Solange find her way back home again? And can she do it in time to save everyone she loves from a vampire civil war, hunter attacks, and each other? Because not everyone can survive the prophecy… maybe not even her.
This just feels weird.
The art therapist my parents are making me visit once a week wants me to write a letter to my future self. Since I turned seventeen in November (there was a sad lack of cake but as we were all running for our lives at the time, I guess I can overlook it), this letter is for my twenty-seven year old self.
Dad says that around twenty-seven or twenty-eight, people go through something called the Saturn Return. It’s this astrological phenomenon where the planet Saturn is in some part of your chart, or house, or something. Basically it just means your life blows up in your face.
Gee, I wonder what that’s like.
And in real life, twenty-seven is around the time of high school reunions where you go back to your home town and see who has soccer-mom hair and who’s forgotten your name and you visit your locker and feel all nostalgic even though the door always stuck and it smelled like old socks no matter how much Nag Champa incense you stuffed in there.
I really hope you don’t have soccer-mom hair.
I wonder if you’re a vampire now, if you have a daughter, and if the Drakes are still all insane. I hope the factions in Violet Hill have called a real truce. And that Kieran has come back, and Hunter is scaring students at the Helios-Ra school with drills and tests.
I hope you’ve been to Paris or San Francisco or Prague. And I hope you and Solange have been on a road trip, and that you’ve taken classes at some university far from Violet Hill, just for a little awhile.
And I really hope Nicholas missed you and wrote you letters and was waiting for you at the bus station the night you came home because he couldn’t wait a single second more. I hope he kissed you until you both forgot it was raining, until you finally remembered what home feels like, until you promised each other you’d never forget again.
And one more thing.
It was worth it.
Whatever we went through at the Blood Moon camp and all the months leading up to it, whatever we’ve been through since then, I just want you to remember that.
It was worth it.

BEFORE YOU GO
Enter to win one of two copies of CONJURE, book one in The Hoodoo Apprentice Series.
Be careful what you search for…I’ll give away:
Emma Guthrie expects this summer to be like any other in the South Carolina Lowcountry--hot and steamy with plenty of beach time alongside her best friend and secret crush, Cooper Beaumont, and Emma’s ever-present twin brother, Jack. But then a mysterious eighteenth-century message in a bottle surfaces, revealing a hidden pirate bounty. Lured by the adventure, the trio discovers the treasure and unwittingly unleashes an ancient Gullah curse that attacks Jack with the wicked flesh-eating Creep and promises to steal Cooper’s soul on his approaching sixteenth birthday.
But when a strange girl bent on revenge appears, demon dogs become a threat, and Jack turns into a walking skeleton; Emma has no choice but to learn hoodoo magic to undo the hex, all before the last days of summer—and her friends—are lost forever.
