Welcome to YA Scavenger Hunt! My name is Pintip Dunn, and I am your hostess for this leg of the tour. Be on the lookout for a DELETED SCENE from my book MALICE, which released in February of 2020! The strange thing is that this book is about a girl who must stop a pandemic … ten years in the future. I have to admit, I find it utterly surreal to have just released this book, as my family and I are beginning our third week of social quarantine! But since this story takes place in the present, I promise it is mostly funny and swoony and suspenseful!!
You’ll come across this DELETED SCENE if you continue on the hunt for the Purple Team!
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 e-book or audiobook download 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 120 hours!
Go to the YA Scavenger Hunt page to find out all about the hunt. There are four contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all! I am a part of the PURPLE TEAM–but there is also a gold team, a red team, and a blue team for a chance to win a whole different set of 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.

SCAVENGER HUNT POST
Today, I am delighted to be hosting the Eliza Tilton for the YA Scavenger Hunt!
Now, feast your eyes on this beautiful cover….
After being kidnapped by occultists, Arabella Grace and her family move to the mining town of Port Tablot to forget the horror they experienced in England. With scars adorning her body, Arabella searches for peace by hiding within her songs.
But Port Tablot has its own demons.
As the dead leave their domain, a spark of magic awakens within Arabella, and her songs have the power to stop the creatures from hurting anyone she loves, including the quirky boy Leo she’s falling for, but only if she’s willing to make a sacrifice.
With the powerful words of her magical songs, Arabella must fight the wave of undead and stop the necromancer who’s raising them … or it won’t just be her home that falls in to a pit of ghosts.
Here’s a sample of Eliza’s pinterest board for DAUGHTER OF THE SONG!
