Welcome to the 4th YA Scavenger Hunt!!

Welcome to YA Scavenger Hunt! At this hunt, you not only get access to exclusive content from each participating author, but 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 BLUE TEAM--but there is also a red 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.

Directions: Below, you'll notice that I've listed my favorite number. Collect the favorite numbers of all the authors on the blue 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 August 5, at noon Pacific Time. Entries sent without the correct number or without contact information will not be considered.


Today, I am hosting the super-gorgeous, super-talented Leigh Fallon, author of The Carrier Series, which includes CARRIER OF THE MARK and the upcoming SHADOW OF THE MARK, on my blog for the YA Scavenger Hunt!
Harrassed mom by day and tormented writer by night, Leigh is a walking Irish cliche, trying (rather unsuccessfully, she thinks) to to blend into U.S. society.
Find out more information about Leigh Fallon, check out her website or find more about the author's books here!  And now for the best part of the hunt...  
In SHADOW OF THE MARK, the upcoming sequel to Leigh's hit novel CARRIER of the Mark, life for Megan Rosenberg just got a lot more complicated.
While she evoked the air element, and her feelings for Adam instensified, a web of lies, deceit, and betrayal has been spun around her.  With the Order tightening its hold, and the reinstatement of the Mark Knights, Megan has more questions than answers as the Marked Ones grow in strength.
New people arouse suspicion, the DeRises start behaving strangely, and Megan begins to unravel a destiny shrouded in mystery.  It's a destiny the Order has struggled to hide, and a destiny someone in the past - far in the past - has already laid claim to.
Alliances will be made and friends will be lost as the Order's dark secrets will be revealed by the very thing they sought to destroy.
Doesn't that sound FANTASTIC?  I know I can't wait for SHADOW OF THE MARK to be released!   
And don't forget to enter the contest for a chance to win a ton of signed books by me, Tara Hudson, and more! To enter, you need to know that my favorite number is 2.  Add up all the favorite numbers of the authors on the blue team and you'll have all the secret code to enter for the grand prize!


To keep going on the hunt, you need to check out the next author (who I absolutely adore) Tera Lynn Childs, at her website here!
