Hello hunters! The YA Scavenger Hunt is on! If you want to play for fabulous prizes, find the skinny here.
I'm on the blue team. You'll find my favorite number highlighted in blue somewhere in this post. Add the numbers of the twenty members of the blue team, and enter the contest to win 20 free books! These ones:
A copy of my book is included in the Blue Team Prize for this season's hunt, but I also am offering a separate prize: a Life Before prize pack. Entering the drawing for my bonus prize is simple: follow me on Twitter! For an additional chance to win, leave a comment on this blog post indicating the best YA book you've read recently.
Now that you know what you're playing for, on to the hunt! This season, I'm hosting Julie Reece, author of One Summer with Autumn.
Autumn’s cool unravels when her sister lectures against disappointing the family again. And when a young, bearded guy steps through the crowd to settle the growing argument between siblings, Autumn lashes out, dubbing him a “Duck Dynasty wannabe.”
At Nineteen, Caden Behr is clueless as to why his man parts are threatened by the fearsome girl before him. He'd only come to find an intern for his recreational equipment company, not break up a girl-fight between two sisters.
Unfortunately, the only candidate left is the girl who just told him off. Without her, he’ll never prove to his CEO mother that he’s ready for more responsibility.
Autumn and Caden agree that if they can keep from killing one another, they can use one another to get what they want and then never have to see each other again. Which is what they want.
Until it isn’t.
Because despite her best efforts to scare him off, and his fading desire to push her into the lake, they’re beginning to enjoy the time they spend together. But pride is a hard habit to break. And if neither will admit their changing feelings, they could lose a whole lot more than one summer.
Wowsers! With that, I'll turn it over to Julie!
I’m so excited to be a part of YASH 2017 this Fall. I guess every writer has a moment or two where they dream about their book becoming a movie. I can’t imagine how cool it is to see your characters come to life on the big screen. Now, as a writer, I put words to paper but I’m actually a super visual person. I can see my characters clearly in my head. It’s nearly impossible to find an actor or model to perfectly replicate the person in your mind, but I tried to find some very pretty people who would play the parts well, I’m betting.
Want to see? Okay, thanks! I’ll introduce you. Dream cast of characters coming up. And here we go …
That’s it, you guys. At least, those are the main players on my story. I hope you enjoyed learning a little about my characters (and the actor/model eye candy I’d choose to play them) as much as I enjoyed dreaming about them. Ha ha.
Here’s a fun Pinterest inspiration board I created for my story. If you want to see more, just click on the link below:
And if you should read the book, thank you in advance. I’d love for you to drop me a line on Twitter, Facebook or my blog and tell me what you think. I truly hope you have fun and enjoy the story.
Thanks for playing, hunters! Your next stop on the blue team hunt is L. H. Nicole!
I blog rarely, because I'm writing books. When I do blog, I focus on writing, friendship, family, and books. Because my family's best nicknames are private, I use their birth years for shorthand:
