Ello! I just wanted to spread the word that this awesome-ness that is The YA Scavenger Hunt starts today (April 2nd) at noon pacific time and ends on April 5th at the same time. This is all online, so all you need is a computer (and a calculator).
I have been doing YASH for the past for years and it is so much fun! And it even gets better each time!!
About the hunt:
"The hunt opens officially at noon Pacific Time--all posts by authors should be up then.
During that time, you can go to the participating authors blogs and websites--you can find them all here. The first thing on the page should be their hunt information--there you can find out about new authors and get exclusive content.
Take note of the highlighted number on each author's hunt page. You need that number to enter the contest!
Each author is on either the RED, ORANGE, GOLD, GREEN, TEAL, BLUE, PURPLE, or PINK Team. Add up the numbers of all the authors on the red team, and you have the secret code you need to enter the contest for the red team--then do the same for the blue, etc! You can find the prizes for each team here. You can only enter once, and your entry only counts if you have the right number, so make sure you get the right code! Break out those calculators!
You have to submit your entry by April 5, noon, Pacific Standard Time. You can submit your entry for each team HERE.
On April 10th, we'll announce the winners! There's one winner for each team. The hunt IS open internationally, to all ages, so you have no excuse to not join in the fun!"
There are eight teams this year (there were only two when I first started) and each team has 20 authors! That's 160 authors TOTAL!! Also, there are the grand prize giveaways, but many authors are also running their own giveaways!
Have fun, guys!
