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! At 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 e-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 until October 4th.
Go to the YA Scavenger Hunt page to find out all about the hunt. There are multiple contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all! I am a part of the purple team–but there are also other teams where you have a chance to win a whole different set of books!
If you’d like to find out more about the hunt, see links to all the authors participating, and see the full list of prizes up for grabs, go to the YA Scavenger Hunt page.

SCAVENGER HUNT POST
Shannon A. Thompson is the bestselling author of the Bad Bloods series and the Timely Death trilogy. When she is not writing, she is climbing rooftops, baking cookies, or watching KDramas in the middle of the night, often done with her cats by her side. She is represented by Katelyn Uplinger at D4EO Literary Agency. Thompson graduated from the University of Kansas with a BA in English with an emphasis on creative writing.
Visit her blog for writers and readers at www.ShannonAThompson.com.
From best-selling author Shannon A. Thompson comes an exciting new duology in the Bad Bloods universe.
Sixteen-year-old Caleb has been called many things: a patient, a musician, even a prostitute…now he has a new name—son. After his identity is uncovered, Caleb bands together with the family he once rejected in order to save the city of Vendona. But it won’t be easy. Enemies wait around every corner—and so do harsh realities. With Violet and Kuthun by his side though, nothing seems impossible. As Vendona sits on the verge of an economic collapse and a massive hurricane threatens the city, Violet and Caleb must show its citizens how to overcome decades of hostility and division to save themselves.
Standing or not, a sea will rage, a wall may fall, and all will depend on immortal pain and sacrifice.
Shannon’s exclusive content is a Pinterest mood board for Bad Bloods: July Thunder & July Lightning. (Click the image to see the full board!) And a Wattpad prequel to her series! (Click the image to read the full story!)
And don’t forget to enter the contest for a chance to win a ton of books by me, Shannon A. Thompson, and more! To enter, you need to know that my favorite number is 3. 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!
