YA Guy Participates in... The YA Scavenger Hunt!




For the first time ever, YA Guy's taking part in the YA Scavenger Hunt! (Okay, this is the first year I have a YA book out, so that kinda makes sense.) I'm on the Blue Team, along with the other fabulous authors you see below:


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! Add up the clues on each blue team page, and you can enter for our prize--one lucky winner will receive one signed book from each author on the hunt in our team! There are EIGHT contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all! But play fast: this contest (and all the exclusive bonus material) will only be online for 72 hours!

HOW IT WORKS

Directions: In the author biography below, you'll notice 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 Sunday, April 5, at noon Pacific Time. Entries sent without the correct number or without contact information will not be considered. For more information, go to the YA Scavenger Hunt page


Okay, got all that? Then let's meet the author I'm hosting, Suzanne Lazear!

Suzanne is the author of the YA Fairytale Steampunk series THE AETHER CHRONICLES, which includes INNOCENT DARKNESS, CHARMED VENGEANCE, and the latest, FRAGILE DESTINY. Suzanne lives in Southern California with her daughter and hubby, where she’s currently attempting to make a ray-gun to match her ballgown. She’s also part of the Steampunk group blog Steamed (http://wwww.ageofsteam.wordpress.com). Learn more about Suzanne at http://suzannewrites.blogspot.com/ and the Aether Chronicles at http://www.aetherchronicles.com.



About FRAGILE DESTINY: Noli and her true love V fear the worst if the Staff of Eris—a potent Otherworld relic—falls into the wrong hands. Broken into pieces and hidden in the mortal realm long ago, the staff bestows vast powers on whoever possesses it. Ciarán, the dark king, is trying to rebuild the staff, intending to use it to install a new queen.

In a desperate effort to keep the Otherworld from falling into darkness, Noli and V plot the daring theft of a jewel Ciarán needs to complete the staff. But Ciarán is not so easily defeated. Through his devious machinations, he has set a plan in motion for a final showdown that will decide who rules the Otherworld once and for all.
