SCAVENGER HUNT POST
Today, I'm thrilled to be hosting the uber-amazing Kendare Blake for the YA Scavenger Hunt!
Kendare lives and writes in Lynnwood, Washington, usually with the Food Network on in the background. Comedy Central proves far too distracting.
I'm a huge fan of Kendare's work. I plan to read her books a minimum of 247 times in the near future. In case you haven't heard of the awesomeness that is Anna Dressed in Blood or Girl of Nightmares, you can read more about it on Kendare's site or you can buy Girl of Nightmares and witness it yourself!
KENDARE'S EXCLUSIVE CONTENT
Cas Lowood kills the dead. On a hunt in a new town in search of a ghost the locals call Anna Dressed in Blood, Cas doesn't expect anything outside of the ordinary: move, hunt, kill. What he finds instead is a girl entangled in curses and rage, a ghost like he's never faced before. She still wears the dress she wore on the day of her brutal murder in 1958: once white, but now stained red and dripping blood. Since her death, Anna has killed any and every person who has dared to step into the deserted Victorian she used to call home.And she, for whatever reason, spares his life.
Kendare's intro for her exclusive content:
Here's one more story Cas had to tell. It's how he, Thomas and Carmel spent their spring break, before Girl of Nightmares happened and made them all stop speaking to me. This is the story of The Water Bride. Native American spirit? Or just some crazy dead girl drowning people in Florida? Cas had to find out, and Carmel had to rent a swanky lakefront cabin with a jacuzzi, because hell if she's going to spend her whole break roughing it in the bunk of an abandoned summer camp.
I know what you're thinking - sounds incredible, right?! It is!
And without further ado...The Water Bride!
And without further ado...The Water Bride!
Thank you so much for this one last creeptastic peek into Cas's life, Kendare!
Now on with the hunt! Don't forget to enter the contest for the chance to win a ton of signed books by me, Kendare Blake and so many more! Now hunt around and add up all the favorite numbers on the Red Team and you'll have the secret code to enter for the Grand Prize!
WHY NOT WIN MORE?
You're here anyway and obviously in a winning mood. Let's do AN ADDITIONAL GIVEAWAY! :) Enter using the Rafflecopter below to win a signed ARC of my debut novel, INSOMNIA!
Here is a bit more about it:
Parker spends every night trapped in the dreams of the last person he made eye contact with, and it's killing him...until he meets Mia. In her dreams, Parker can finally get real sleep, but finding ways to make eye contact every night isn't easy. When Mia starts receiving threatening emails, her dreams transform into scenes of a horror movie--with Parker cast as the villain.
He must discover who is truly tormenting her, and clear his name, before the real stalker makes good on his threats to end her dreams forever.
So...yeah, enter here to win! I'll announce the winner in a post by noon PST on Monday. And look down below the rafflecopter to continue the hunt!
