Welcome to YA Scavenger Hunt! This bi-annual event was first organized by author Colleen Houck as a way to give readers a chance to gain access to exclusive bonus material from their favorite authors…and a chance to win some awesome prizes! On this hunt, you not only get access to exclusive content from each author, you also get a clue for the hunt. Add up the clues, and you can enter for our prize–one lucky winner will receive one book from each author on the hunt in my team! But play fast: this contest (and all the exclusive bonus material) will only be online for 120 hours!

Wendy Darling worked her entire life to rise through the ranks of the prestigious Londonierre Brigade. Now as a Captain, she has everything she’s always wanted, including a ship and crew of her own. But when the Brigade receives a strange transmission from the legendary James Hooke, lost a hundred years earlier in uncharted space and presumed dead, Wendy is willing to risk it all to rescue her hero. She races to the planet known only as Neverland; her mission to find the long-lost crew and bring them home.
But there is more to Neverland than meets the eye, and more to Hooke than what was written in history books. When Wendy crash lands on the ominous planet, she quickly discovers Neverland’s dark secret; a malevolent being known as The Shadow that’s looking for a host body to escape its eternal prison. To fulfill her mission, Wendy must decide whether to trust the dashing Hooke or the mysterious Fleet mechanic who goes by the name of Pan–and she has to decide quickly…
Before the darkness consumes them all.
Cover reveal for Shattered Snow
‘Mirror mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?’ Everyone knows the story of the Wicked Queen and the injustice Snow White suffered for the curse of being pretty. But words have power and different meaning, and nobody understands this more than Mara, the enchantress who would be Queen. Only Mara knows the prophecy that surrounds the fated king, and only she can save her kingdom by paying ‘fair’s’ devastating price.
Mirror, mirror on the wall,
Who is fairest of them all?
This question from the evil queen,
Is one that ev’ry child has seen.
The queen so lovely, yet so vain,
Would ask it time and time again,
Relentless, she earned the same reply,
Until the mirror changed its cry.
And on the day she asked her query,
The mirror answered, voice so weary,
My Queen, so fair you are ’tis true,
But young Snow White is still moreso than you’
To this, the Queen took jealous rage,
And vowed to make poor Snow pay.
That’s how the story goes you see,
Though everyone tells it wrong but me.
And don’t forget to enter the contest for a chance to win a ton of books by me, J.M. Sullivan, and more! To enter, you need to know that my favorite number is 122. Add up all the favorite numbers of the authors on the purple team and you’ll have all the secret code to enter for the grand prize!
