The Awesome Is Coming

Not the WriteOnCon awesome, because we already announced that whole win-$1000-thing. You missed it? Click here.

Not any of the awesome that was last week, what with all those ARC giveaways. I mean, that was cool, but... oh, I still owe you a winner for THE NEAR WITCH, yes?

Yes.

Okay, the winner is: TheJay2xA

Congrats! Email me at elanajohnson(at)gmail(dot)com with your email address and I'll get this in the mail.

And now onto the awesome that will be taking place next Monday, August 1. Colleen Houck, author of THE TIGER'S CURSE, has organized a scavenger hunt where YA authors are going to be unlocking the vault on some exclusive material for one day only. (Click here to see more details on Colleen's blog.)

That's right. 24 hours of awesome.

You'll get the day to go around the Interwebz and find all the cool stuff. Many authors are giving away prizes and books in conjunction with this amazing scavenger hunt, so be sure to come back here on Monday, August 1, and you can start the hunt from my blog.

You can also start the hunt from any of these author's blogs: YA authors Josephine Angelini, Angela Corbett, Andrea Cremer, Kady Cross, Heather Davis, Bree Despain, Clare Dunkle, Marley Gibson, Abbi Glines, Colleen Houck, Tara Hudson, Alexandra Monir, Lisa Nowak, Gregg Olsen, Amy Plum, Beth Revis, Lisa and Laura Roecker, Inara Scott, Sophie Jordan, Lani Woodland and more!

I'm not going to tell you what my super-sekrit part of the hunt will be, but I will say that there will be a POSSESSION-related prize!

So, guesses as to what my secret content will be? What "extra" would you like to see from authors?(Not just me.)

Great idea! I love to see queries that landed representation - I think it's a great way for aspiring writers to see real world examples.
