YA Scavenger Hunt: Kimberly Derting (Blue Team)

Welcome to YA Scavenger Hunt! 

This tri-annual event was first organized by author Colleen Houck to give readers a chance to gain access to exclusive bonus material from their favorite authors and win awesome prizes.

NOTE: I am also giving out my own special prizes below. So don't forget to enter here before you leave at a chance to win even more!

Also - you can read my exclusive chapter of Uncontrollable (the sequel to Untraceable)

The YA Scavenger Hunt - Where do you go?

Go to the YA Scavenger Hunt page to find out all about the hunt. There are THREE contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter all three! I am a part of the BLUE team - but there is also a RED team and a YELLOW team. You can enter all three contests--which has a total prize bucket of 60 signed books!

Follow the hunt, collect clues, and add them up, and you can enter for the prize--one lucky winner will receive 20 signed books from each team (one book from each author on the team!) But play fast: this contest (and all the exclusive bonus material) will only be online for 72 hours!

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 homepage.

Entering the Scavenger Hunt - What do you do?

Hidden within this post is a single letter that is blue. Make a note of this letter! It's a part of a scrambled phrase you will need to win. When you go to all the author sites of the BLUE team, you'll have all the letters you need to enter the BLUE contest. Then if you have time, complete the same process for the RED team and YELLOW team.) 

Entry Form:
Once you piece together all the clues to the BLUE hunt, make sure you fill out the form here to officially qualify for the grand prize. Only entries that have the completed phrase will qualify. You may enter all 3 hunts which means you will have to fill out the form 3 times.

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 April 1st at NOON PST. Entries sent without the correct puzzle code or without required information may not be considered.

BLUE TEAM SCAVENGER HUNT: Author Kimberly Derting

Today, I am hosting Kimberly Derting. She 
is the author of the BODY FINDER series (HarperCollins), which are as much coming-of-age romance as they are paranormal thrillers, as well as a new dystopic-fantasy trilogy, beginning with THE PLEDGE (S&S)

She lives in the Pacific Northwest where the gloomy weather is ideal for writing anything dark and creepy. Her three beautiful (and often mouthy) children serve as an endless source of inspiration, and often find the things they say buried in the pages of their mother’s books.

About The Last Echo (the 3rd book in Body Finder series):

In the end, all that's left is an echo…

Violet kept her morbid ability to sense dead bodies a secret from everyone except her family and her childhood-best-friend-turned-boyfriend, Jay Heaton. That is until forensic psychologist Sara Priest discovered Violet's talent and invited her to use her gift to track down murderers. Now, as she works with an eclectic group of individuals—including mysterious and dangerously attractive Rafe—it's Violet's job to help those who have been murdered by bringing their killers to justice. When Violet discovers the body of a college girl killed by "the girlfriend collector" she is determined to solve the case. But now the serial killer is on the lookout for a new "relationship" and Violet may have caught his eye.... 

Find out more information by checking out the author website or find more about the author's book here! 

EXCLUSIVE CONTENT:The Bonus is a chapter from The Last Echo
(hint, write this letter down!)
