I’m very excited to be a part of Team Gold this season. Check out the amazing books that will be featured during the 2019 YA Scavenger Hunt. This season I’ll be announcing two very special projects, showing you the first glimpse of a brand new cover, and you’ll get to read some never before released bonus material from a bonus chapter of the Tiger Series! Get ready to hunt, people. It’s going to be a good one. 😉

For all of you who love finding new reads, I have just the thing for you. The YA Scavenger Hunt is coming. If you’ve never heard of it, the hunt runs twice a year in the spring and in the fall. During the hunt we showcase new and upcoming YA releases, give out tons of prizes, and release special bonus material. Sound interesting?
This spring we will have one hundred authors split into five teams of twenty. Each team is assigned a color. The blog hop begins April 4th and runs through Sunday, April 9th. It’s easy to play. All you have to do is either start on my blog or head directly over to the YASH website. There you’ll find a list of all the authors participating as well as an answer sheet you can print off to gather the info you’re hunting for and to keep track of any bonus contests you may have entered.
Are you ready to see all the books featured this season? Here they are! You can also see them on this handy goodreads list.
Which teams are you most excited about? Are you #TeamBlue? #TeamPurple? Let us know in the comments.

A New York Times bestseller!
What do you do when the future is too late, and the present is counting down to an inevitable moment?
Elena Martinez has street smarts, the ability for perfect recall, and a deadline: if she doesn’t find a job before she turns eighteen, she’ll be homeless. But then she gets an unexpected offer from Aether Corporation, the powerful Los Angeles tech giant. Along with four other recruits–Adam, Chris, Trent, and Zoe–Elena is being sent on a secret mission to bring back data from the future. All they have to do is get Aether the information they need, and the five of them will be set for life. It’s an offer Elena can’t refuse.
But something goes wrong when the time travelers arrive in the future. And they are forced to break the only rule they were given–not to look into their own fates. Now they have twenty-four hours to get back to the present and find a way to stop a seemingly inevitable future–and a murder–from happening. But changing the timeline has deadly consequences too. Who can Elena trust as she fights to save her life?
The first book in an unforgettable series about rewriting your destiny in the city of dreams.
I always make playlists for every book I write. The songs inspire me, help me set the tone for the book, and make it easier for me to get back into the writing after some time off.
For Future Shock, I chose a lot of dark, angry songs that reflect Elena’s state of mind, along with songs about being an outcast, about running out of time, and about not being able to trust anyone. You can check out the playlist here.
Future Threat is the second book in the trilogy and comes out March 1, 2017. I’m excited to present the playlist for it, exclusive to the YA Scavenger Hunt!For this playlist I also kept the songs pretty dark, but they’re not as angry as in Future Shock because Elena is in a different place now. She’s struggling with getting over her past and trying to live in the present with the man she loves, but is forced to return to the future again for another mission. The songs are moody, a little sad, but also a tiny bit hopeful – just like Elena in the book.
