YA Scavenger Hunt

YA Scavenger Hunt

Welcome to the YA Scavenger Hunt! 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! Go to the YA Scavenger Hunt page to find out all about the hunt. There are NINE contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all! I am on the SILVER TEAM, but there is also a red, blue, gold, green, orange, teal, purple, and pink team, 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 page.

Splash Into Summer

Well, it just wouldn’t be my blog without long absences, would it? After thirty years of being on Earth, I’m attempting to finally kick my procrastination habit in the butt and get myself in gear. I’ve pondered my work ethic pretty extensively, and I’ve come to realize that I’m not a lazy person. I get a LOT done. But I tend to let things pile up until the mere thought of doing them makes me want to hide under the covers. They’ll eventually get done, but I’m pretty sure I’ve already aged myself an extra ten years by doing it. In any case, this summer, I’ll be planning out some blog topics and trying to get in the habit of writing regularly. 🙂 For now, I wanted to share a couple of updates. I’ve been blogging with some very talented ladies and gentlemen over at  a blog called Darkly Delicious YA. Currently, we’re hosting a giveaway! It’s easy to enter, which means it’s even easier to win. Check it out! The other updates I wanted to share are about my own book, Phantom Touch. It’s been out for about eight months now, and in that time has won several honors! I was a finalist in the 2014 Yerby Award here in my hometown, and was the finalist (essentially 2nd place) in the Georgia Author of the Year contest for YA. Both of them were extremely exciting for me! Now I’m just writing and trying to make a go of this “being an author” thing! Stay tuned for what I hope will be more-frequent-than-every-four-months posts! 🙂...
