It’s the 20th YA Scavenger Hunt. Are you ready to YASH?
Don’t know who I am?
I’m a corporate girl by day, YA Author by night, and mom to 4 kids under 11.
A few fun facts:
- I’ll never leave NY because of the pizza
- I HATE ZOMBIES…and yet I have three books with them in it.
- My books are fast-paced with magic, romance and bad guys that’ll win you over.
- I worked part-time at Gamestop just for the discount
- I met the “man in black”,my childhood dream guy from the Princess Bride, twice–the second we hugged : ) I shared a pic as proof–I’m the one on the right aka the girl with the long hair which his hand is in.
Before we get into the hunting, make sure to enter my giveaway. I live in New York, and it’s definitely a scary time. To put a smile on someone’s face, I’m doing a $25 giveaway–venmo, paypal, or an Amazon GC–it’s up to you 🙂

SCAVENGER HUNT POST
Today, I am hosting Amanda Marin on my website for the YA Scavenger Hunt!
When Amanda was a child, her father traveled frequently for business, always bringing her back a book as a present. Whether she was getting lost in the pages of a tale about far-away knights, girls with supernatural powers, or kindly giants, she was quickly hooked on stories. Nowadays, she writes books of her own. Her favorite things include Starbucks lattes, lazy summer afternoons at the beach, and books with characters that make you go “awww.” She lives in the northeastern US with her family and furbaby, Snickers the Poodle.
Nine muses. Nine signs. Nine chances to save the world from darkness.
Flunking out of Brightling Academy–a prestigious finishing school for Muses-in-training–isn’t an option for Bianca Harper. But if she doesn’t master Poise and Charm or stop tripping over her ballgown, failure is inevitable. Then he shows up: Sebastian Greenbriar, the first male student to walk through Brightling’s halls in decades. For extra credit, Bianca agrees to help him settle in–even though putting up with his self-absorbed attitude feels more like a punishment than a chance at redemption.
But just as Bianca begins to make good, she discovers an even bigger problem lurking in the shadows. As foretold by ancients, the Well of Imagination–the force from which Muses draw their powers to inspire–is running dry, threatening the future of Muse-kind and the beauty they bring into the world. Sebastian’s connection to this danger is impossible to miss, but when he isn’t who or what he claims, can Bianca rely on him to help her stop the impending darkness?
Amanda’s created a special sneak peek page on her website.You can checkout that and a few giveaways on the link below!
And don’t forget to enter the contest for a chance to win a ton of books by me, Amanda Marin, and more! To enter, you need to know that my favorite number is 33. Add up all the favorite numbers of the authors on the blue team and you’ll have all the secret code to enter for the grand prize!
