Spring 2014 YA Scavenger Hunt!

scavenger hunt

Oh my jellyfish! Can you believe that I’m getting to be on this hunt AGAIN! I’m so excited I can barely breathe! I love this amazing hunt. And… Yay! You’ve found my stop!

I’m Jessica (J.A. Souders) and I write young adult, new adult, and adult fiction. Yep. I’ve got my hands in a lot of pies, but the more the merrier I always say.  I’m big on philanthropy and I’m a sucker for a good cause. Especially if it has to do with saving the oceans and everything in it or helping out my friends. I wanted to be a marine biologist and wanted to be the first to discover Atlantis, but I joined the Navy instead and decided to write about underwater worlds instead of hunting for them. I’m totally in love with Ian Somerhalder (who isn’t?) and completely addicted to the Vampire Diaries. And last but not least Beth Revis is my doppelganger (or I’m hers. We haven’t quite figured out who’s first yet.)


On this hunt, you not only get access to exclusive content from each participating YA author, you also get a secret number. Add up the numbers, and  enter it for a chance to win a major prize–one lucky winner will receive at least one signed book from each author on my team in the hunt! But play fast: this contest (and all the exclusive bonus material) will only be online until noon PST on Sunday, April 6th!

You can start right here or you can also go to the YA Scavenger Hunt homepage to find out all about the hunt. There are TWO contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or both! I am a part of the RED TEAM–but there is also a blue team and if you do the blue hunt you’ll have a chance to win a whole different set of signed books!



If you’d like to find out more about the hunt, see links to all the authors participating, see the full list of prizes up for grabs, or if you get lost along the way, go to the YA Scavenger Hunt homepage.



Directions: Below, you’ll notice that I’ve listed my favorite number. Collect the favorite numbers of all the authors on the red team, and then add them up (don’t worry, you can use a calculator!). Hint: the secret number is highlighted in RED.

Entry Form: Once you’ve added up all the numbers, make sure you fill out the form here to officially qualify for the grand prize. Only entries that have the correct number will qualify.

Rules: 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 6th, at noon Pacific Time. Entries sent without the correct number or without contact information will not be considered.

Now that all the technical stuff is out of the way, I’ll introduce the author I am hosting on this hunt.

I am super excited to be hosting…


When I saw who I was hosting I was superexcited. I literally did the girly jumping/squealing thing we all do when we’re excited. I’m absolutely in love with Stacey Kade and all her books. I devoured her Ghost and Goth series like it was Nerds topped icecream, and I totally wanted to ditch my authorly duties at Houston Bookrave this past summer to read The Rules. In fact, I was probably caught at least 17 times with my nose stuck in her book.  😀
Her’s her bio:

As a former award-winning corporate copywriter, Stacey Kade has written about everything from backhoe loaders to breast pumps. But she prefers to make things up instead.

Stacey is the author of The Ghost and the Goth trilogy (The Ghost and the Goth, Queen of the Dead, and Body & Soul) as well as the Project Paper Doll series.

She lives in the Chicago suburbs with her husband, Greg, and their two retired racing greyhounds, Tall Walker (Walker) and SheWearsThePants (Pansy).

The book she’s showcasing on the Spring Hunt is….
The Project Paper Doll series: The Hunt

Ariane Tucker has finally escaped GTX, the research facility that created her. While on the run, Zane Bradshaw is the only person she can trust. He knows who-and what-she is and still wants to be part of her life.

But accepting Zane’s help means putting him in danger.

Dr. Jacobs, head of GTX, is not the only one hunting for Ariane. Two rival corporations have their sights set on taking down their competition. Permanently. To protect Zane and herself, Ariane needs allies. She needs the other hybrids. The hybrids who are way more alien and a lot less human. Can Ariane win them over before they turn on her? Or will she be forced to choose sides, to decide who lives and who dies?

Sounds fantastic, right?!  If you agree, you should definitely check out her website here for info. on her books and you can pre-order THE HUNT here.
