 Hello Everybody,

It's time to announce the final lineup of the Spring Scavenger Hunt!  This year it will be bigger and badder than ever before with 60 count 'em 60 YA authors! With fabulous prizes around every corner you DO NOT want to miss this! Having just loaded all the books into my blog I have to say I am suffering greatly from cover envy.

Whew that was a long scroll! Totally worth the carpal tunnel though.  If I was to get all the books I wanted from that list my bookshelf would topple over.  Leave a comment on this blog telling me which book or books you are the most excited about other than my own of course. =)


My amazingly gifted friend and author Beth Revis has created a website just for our Scavenger Hunts! Click on the YA Scavenger Hunt image below to be redirected there. Because we have so many authors this time we are breaking into three groups. We have BLUE TEAM, RED TEAM, and YELLOW TEAM!


Each group is made up of 20 authors and I am on  TEAM RED!




 
 
 
This means that my bonus material will be found on the red team. If you get lost on the hunt simply return to the hunt website and pick up where you left off. While you check out the website, don't forget to vote on the polls, follow the site, and check out all the prizes. You can even tweet from there too!



YA Scavenger Hunt 



As for me I will be offering a very highly coveted prize for one special winner. Not only will you be getting a Tiger Prize Pack including the ginormously-collectable-no-longer-for-sale self published version of Tiger's Curse and Tiger's Quest, a handmade tiger bracelet created by my mom, assorted cool stuff and goodies...







BUT...


I also got permission to include an exclusive signed poster depicting early concept art for the upcoming TIGER'S CURSE motion picture! This is a special treat that I rarely give out. Two went to the UK, one was given away during my August Scavenger Hunt, my mom has one and I have one so they are very, very special. Thanks to Raffi Kryszek, one of my movie producers, for this special prize!


 



THE YA SCAVENGER HUNT BEGINS THURSDAY MARCH 29TH AT NOON PACIFIC TIME AND ENDS SUNDAY APRIL 1ST AT NOON PACIFIC TIME! THAT GIVES YOU ONLY 72 HOURS
TO COMPLETE THE HUNT!
GOOD LUCK TO ALL!




Don't forget that I still have contests for March going on even through the hunt! Click HERE to be redirected to the last blog and scroll down until you find the contest info.

Thanks Tiger Fans!

Colleen

There is only one thing I would ask in terms of clarification. Are the hidden letters available to find now, or are they only visible on the given dates? I love your additional prize as well, it's wonderful incentive!! :)

I can not wait to start the hunt! I missed the last one but went through all the websites anyway. As a high school librarian and a lover of YA fiction I am pumped! I have bought Everneath for my library but since i put it in there it has not stayed in there it has not stayed checked in long enough for me to read it. I just got done reading an excert from Embrace. It was pretty good. I would like to get it for my Kindle. I desperately want that poster!
