Fall 2018 #YASH has begun! And you’re hunting with Team Blue!!
What is #YASH? It’s a bi-annual event 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 books and other prizes! This Fall, there are 140 Young Adult authors divided into seven teams. I’m on Team Blue. Each author on each team has agreed to give away at least one book to the grand prize winner. As a scavenger hunter, you can hunt on as many teams as you want, but you’ll need to play fast. This contest is only open October 2 – 7, 2018. When you visit each author’s site, make sure you look for other chances to win extra prizes as a lot of authors have giveaways going on separately that you don’t want to miss (I have one going on, so make sure you check it out!)
This is my 4th time participating in YASH and I hope you guys have as much fun hunting as I do with this awesome event.
What exactly are you hunting for? A number. Each author on the team will have a special number embedded in their post. Add up the number clues for your team, head over to the Rafflecopter giveaway that matches the team color, and enter the number. That’s it. As you read my post, you will see I’ve mentioned the number a few times (just in case you missed it). While I mention it several times, you will only use it once. If you win the grand prize for the team, you’ll get a book from each of the authors on the team. Only entries with the correct number will qualify to win.
Rules: the contest is open internationally. Prizes must be claimed within 48 hours or the prize will be re-drawn. You must be 16 years or older, or have the permission of a guardian to enter. Duplicate entries will be deleted. To be eligible for the grand prize, you must submit the completed entry form by noon, Pacific Time, October 7, 2018. You must enter to win before then. Good luck and happy hunting! Entries sent without the correct number or without contact information will not be considered.

I’m super excited to be hosting the awesome Dorothy Dreyer, author of PHOENIX DESCENDING and the second book in the series, PARAGON RISING.
I can’t wait to read this book! PHOENIX DESCENDING was amazing and I can only imagine how good this will be.
So who is this gal, Dorothy Dreyer?
From her Goodreads page:
I’m a Philippine-born American living in Germany with my husband, my two adult children, and two Siberian Huskies.
I am an Amazon category bestselling author who writes young adult and new adult books that usually have some element of magic or the supernatural in them. I also like to read those kinds of books. Aside from reading, I like movies, chocolate, take-out, coffee, traveling, and having fun with my friends and family.
I tend to sing sometimes, too, so keep me away from your Karaoke bars.
And now on to the EXCLUSIVE CONTENT … (yay!)
“For those of you who have read the first book in the series, PHOENIX DESCENDING, you know there are some character illustrations spread out throughout the story. So if you’re expecting more illustrations in PARAGON RISING, you won’t be disappointed. Here are four of the five illustrations you’ll find in the book. If you want to see the fifth one, you’ll just have to buy the book.
Hint: there’s a reason why the fifth illustration is not shown here, as it may spoil the story for you!
Check them out!”
Aren’t those 4 illustrations fantastic!
AND NOW TO CONTINUE THE HUNT
Next author on the list to visit is the super-amazing, talented author, FONDA LEE.
Make sure you spread the word!

Good luck to everyone and happy hunting!!
