Meet the Maids of Honor

YA Scavenger Hunt :: TEAM RED

Hello and welcome to the Fall 2014 Scavenger Hunt!!

scavenger hunt

This year, the hunt is bigger and better than ever!

I’m on the RED team–and RED seriously rocks!!

Red TeamHere’s how the YA Scavenger Hunt works:

On this hunt, you’ll not only gain access to exclusive content from each participating YA author, you’ll also get a secret number. Add up the numbers, and enter the result 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 will only be online until noon PST on Sunday, October 5th!

You can start right here or you can also go to YA Scavenger Hunt homepage to find out all about the hunt, see links to all the authors participating, and see the full list of prizes up for grabs. There are six contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all! We are part of the RED TEAM–but there are also blue, orange, green, gold, and indie teams, and if you do the other hunts as well, you’ll have a chance to win a whole different set of signed books!

If you’re looking for MY exclusive content? You’ll have to keep searching. Somewhere on this blog hop you’ll discover an exclusive deleted scene from MAID OF WONDER, book 3 in the Maids of Honor series!

So, to sum up…

Directions: Below, you’ll notice that we’ve listed our favorite number (hint: it’s big. and RED). Collect the favorite numbers of all the authors on the blue team, and then add them up.

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 October 5th, at noon Pacific Time. Entries sent without the correct number or without contact information will not be considered.


So let’s get to it!

I’m hosting…



Amy K. Nichols has been crafting stories for as long as she can remember. She’s the author of YA science fiction novel NOW THAT YOU’RE HERE, to be published by Knopf on December 9, 2014. The follow-up, WHILE YOU WERE GONE, will follow in summer of 2015. Amy is mentored by award-winning crime novelist James Sallis and lives on the edge of the Sonoran desert with her husband and children. Visit her online at

The book she’s showcasing is NOW THAT YOU’RE HERE


OMG THIS IS SO GORGEOUS I WANT THIS NOW. Even though I currently have  


books in my TBR pile, I now want to read NOW THAT YOU’RE HERE.

Here’s some info about it!

In a parallel universe, the classic bad boy falls for the class science geek.

One minute Danny was running from the cops, and the next, he jolted awake in an unfamiliar body—his own, but different. Somehow, he’s crossed into a parallel universe. Now his friends are his enemies, his parents are long dead, and studious Eevee is not the mysterious femme fatale he once kissed back home. Then again, this Eevee—a girl who’d rather land an internship at NASA than a date to the prom—may be his only hope of getting home.

Eevee tells herself she’s only helping him in the name of quantum physics, but there’s something undeniably fascinating about this boy from another dimension . . . a boy who makes her question who she is, and who she might be in another place and time.

LOVE THIS. If you do, too, you can BUY THE BOOK HERE!

You can learn more about Amy at her website!
