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 signed 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 72 hours!

Go to the YA Scavenger Hunt page to find out all about the hunt. There are EIGHT contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all! I am a part of the TEAM PINK–but there is also a red team, a gold team, an orange team, a teal team, a purple team, a green team, and a blue team for a chance to win a whole different set of signed books!

LET THE HUNT BEGIN!

***MEET DEIDRE MAPSTONE, AUTHOR OF THE BANDAMANN SAGA***
Deidre Mapstone grew up in Rochester, New York. She’s a city girl who spent her summers on Canandaigua Lake. She had the best of both worlds, and a most normal, cheery childhood.
She married her high school sweetheart right out of college, and a few years later started their family. They now have three children, the first to soon attend college.
Being busy raising three children, Deidre didn’t discover writing as an occupation until later. She wrote things throughout her life, but didn’t think she’d ever have anything published. That is, until self-publishing came along.
The self-publishing world opened up possibilities to Deidre that before, she just thought of as dreams and ideas.
With encouragement from her writing daughter and her husband, Deidre wrote a dream down that spun into a story and blossomed into her first novel, Sigrun, the Bandamann Saga.
She has discovered and fallen in love with the world of writing, and hopes to bring many of her ideas to others!
***SIGRUN***

The Lundgrens own and operate Sigrun:
A family restaurant on the shores of Mount Desert Island, Maine. They are a hard working, every day, American family. But like every family, they have their secrets, some stranger than others. The way these secrets unfold may surprise you.
