Join our YA Summer Scavenger Hunt!

Introducing The YA Summer Scavenger Hunt

I'm a member of The Alliance of Young Adult Authors and we're sponsoring a MASSIVE young adult scavenger hunt in June. This will be a fantastic chance for you to meet some new authors, grab some free books and sign up to win some truly epic prizes!

In addition to the $500 grand prize, each author will be giving away free books and/or cool stuff. Prepare for a summer of awesome reading by participating!

When the scavenger hunt begins (June 1st) all you have to do is visit each site below in order and write down the special word to reconstruct the story. You can enter any of the giveaways or offers on anybody’s site, or just grab the special word and move on. I’ll add a link soon where you can enter for the grand prize when you have the full story.


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 this order, write down the special keywords to discover the short story, then enter the giveaway with the completed short story (link will be posted soon).

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


Right click on each author's name and choose "open link in a new tab".


Authors will have their post up and visible on their site/blog, with their keyword, by June 1st. Readers just need to go through the list, find the words, and use the story to enter for the grand prize.

And that's it! Fun, books, swag, and a big cash prize awaits!

Good hunting to all!
