Spring 2018 YA Scavenger Hunt



Hi hi! Once again it's time for the YA Scavenger Hunt!!! YASH gives you a chance to check out scads of fun bonus material and enter to win like a bajillion books. If you're new to the hunt, confused about how to play, or you get stuck somewhere, check this site for instructions on how to hunt. The hunt starts at noon Pacific (so 3:00 pm Eastern) on April 3rd and runs through noon Pacific on April 8th. My post will go up the night before, as usual, so that organizers have time to verify links, but if you start hunting early, keep in mind that some of the links might be inactive.



This hunt I am proud to represent the  RED TEAM! I'm hosting HeatherMcKenzie!

Heather is promoting NOCTURNE, book 2 of the Nightmusic trilogy. Holy crap! How beautiful is that cover? :)

Here’s more about the book:

I am hunted.
A pawn in a vicious game.
The only way I can protect the ones I love...
...is to disappear.

Finally free of her father, Kaya has the one thing that keeps her heart beating—Luke.

Blissfully content in his arms, everything seems perfect…until their world is shattered by a deadly invasion. When an old ally comes to the rescue, Kaya wants none of it. She is devastated to learn the identity of her attacker, and that she must do something truly heartbreaking if she wants to save the ones she loves. Sacrificing everything and sinking into bottomless sorrow, Kaya finds solace in an unlikely friend—one who shows her a different kind of love, and helps her discover an inner strength she never thought possible.


For her bonus content, Heather is sharing original music from her album 'Decoy.' If you’ve read her book SERENADE, you can picture Kaya and Luke slow dancing while you listen to the song ‘All I Need.’ The song ‘Anything Like This’ is about being grateful for the love you’ve found, marvelling how it has survived all the obstacles thrown before it – which is fitting for book two, NOCTURNE.

You can listen to more of Heather’s original music on her website, or on YouTube where you will also find live performance footage of her and her band covering cool tunes from artists such as Led Zeppelin and Lorde.









Here's more about Heather:

Heather McKenzie is the Canadian author of The Nightmusic Trilogy. Also a professional singer/songwriter with five albums to date, she told stories through music for years before falling in love with novel writing. Heather pulls from her extraordinary experiences as a musician to fuel her passion for creating Young Adult fiction.
