Welcome to the fourth port in the YA Summer Scavenger Hunt!
I’m David Kudler, and I’m writing Seasons of the Sword, a historical adventure series about a young girl who’s been pulled into a plot that may save Japan—or may destroy it. Along with another 138 members of the Alliance of Young Adult Authors, I’m participating in a word-search treasure hunt. Gather up the words, put them together to tell the story, and enter to win prizes, including free books and a $500 Amazon gift card. Read to the bottom to collect my word and get one step closer to the treasure. Continue reading YA Summer Scavenger Hunt #4!→
In June, the Alliance of Young Adult Authors is sponsoring a massive young adult scavenger hunt — and Risuko is part of the fun! This is a chance to meet some new authors, grab a bunch of free books, and sign up to win a whole bunch of epic prizes!
Each author will be given a special keyword, which will be bolded and all caps like this: BUTTERFLIES.
All you have to do is visit all the author’s sites in this order, write down the special keywords to discover the short story, then enter the giveaway with the completed short story HERE (link will be posted soon).
There will be one main giveaway for the main prize, but most of the participating authors (including here!) will also have smaller giveaways for free books, Amazon credit and author swag, so make sure you read their post carefully to see what else they’re offering while you’re on their site for the keyword.
Set in sixteenth-century Sengoku era Japan, Risuko follows the journey of a young woman who is recruited to become a kunoichi. What does that mean, how will she adapt, and can one girl affect the outcome of a hundred years of civil war?
