An Online Scavenger Hunt Is Coming . . .


I usually host a Facebook party to celebrate the release of a new book. While those are always fun, this time I wanted to try something different for the release of King’s Blood (Kinsman Chronicles, book 2). I’ve participated in several online scavenger hunts and thought it might be neat to do one as a release party.

So, mark your calendars for February 17 – 19, 2017 and join me and seventeen other authors as we follow the characters from King’s Blood over a world of worlds as they seek out a place to call home. You will visit 17 different author websites, discover their amazing storyworlds, learn about the books that take place in those worlds, and pick up a clue at each stop to enter to win the grand prize.



First Prize: Kindle Fire or ($50 Amazon Gift Card) and signed copies of King’s Folly and King’s Blood (unsigned if international winner).
Second Prize: $25 Amazon Gift Card and signed paperback copies of King’s Folly and King’s Blood (unsigned if international winner).
Third Prize:  Signed paperback copies of King’s Folly and King’s Blood (unsigned if international winner).
Bonus Quiz Prize: Kindle Fire or ($50 Amazon Gift Card) and signed copies of King’s Folly and King’s Blood (unsigned if international winner).
Bonus giveaways: Look for more giveaways on various participating author sites (see each site during the hunt for details).




February 17 at 12:00 noon, Pacific time, until February 19 at midnight, Pacific time

We will start right here on my author blog. The scavenger hunt is not a race, so there is no need to rush through. All prizes will be awarded after the end of the hunt. Winners will be notified by email.



1. Start here, on my blog, on or after February 17 at 12:00 noon, Pacific time.
2. Follow the link at the end of my post to Stop #2. Each subsequent post will have a link that leads you to the next stop until you arrive back here at the end. You will collect clues along the way, enter any other giveaways you might find, and (if you want to participate) be sure to read each post so you can answer the questions for the Bonus Quiz Prize.
3. At the end of the hunt, you will find a place to enter the clues you will have gathered and have a chance to take the Bonus Quiz, if you want to. All answers must be entered before midnight on February 19, 2017.
4. Winners will be announced by Tuesday, February 21.

  1. OH MY GOODNESS THIS LOOKS SO FUUUUN! :O A nautical adventure on the high seas of the internet with a treasure map. XD *spies Leira and Ilyon and Hagenheim and The Meredith and other exciting places I recognize* I can’t wait. 😀

  2. Georgina says:

    Yay! So looking forward to this. 🙂
    I would have to say the world on the map that most intrigues me is World City because I’ve never heard of it and I like blimps. ;D

    THAT MAP, JILL. o_o Ilyon, Leira, Hagenheim…. I LOVE how Florida leads to space because, yeah, rockets! THIS LOOKS SO FUN! I’ve never done a scavenger hunt before. . . but I totally want to do this one if I can!! Super cool! 🙂

    Wow, I guess that means Achan’s ancestors went to a lot of places before they found Er’Rers. XD Heehee.

    Random: My sister was holding her cat and saying in baby talk “you’re trouble”, and I said something along the lines of: “She’s Achan?”. <— This sort of thing happens. XD I love Achan/trouble jokes.

  7. asldkkf;lsdhfl This sounds so awesome! And, thank goodness, it’s over a weekend, so I’ll probably be attached to my computer anyway- hopping from one stop to another will make a grand study break! So excited!
