Welcome to YA Scavenger Hunt! My name is Pintip Dunn, and I am your hostess for this leg of the tour. I’m a NYT bestselling and of YA fiction, and I’m super excited about the scavenger hunt this year because yesterday was the cover reveal for my newest book, STAR-CROSSED, which releases on October 2 of this year! Be on the lookout for the never-before-seen first scene of STAR-CROSSED, which you’ll come across if you continue on the hunt for the Pink 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 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 120 hours!
Go to the YA Scavenger Hunt page to find out all about the hunt. There are six contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all! I am a part of the PINK TEAM–but there is also a red team, a blue team, a green team, a gold team, and a purple 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.
