YA Scavenger Hunt (Spring): Team Purple!



Welcome to YA Scavenger Hunt! I'm F.M. Boughan, your host for this stop along the hunt! The bi-annual YASH event was first organized by author Colleen Houck as a way to give readers a chance to gain access to exclusive bonus material from their favorite authors... and a chance to win some awesome prizes! At this hunt, you not only get access to exclusive content from each author, you also get a clue for the hunt. Add up the clues, and you can enter for our prize--one lucky winner will receive one book from each author on the hunt in my team! But play fast: this contest (and all the exclusive bonus material) will only be online for 120 hours!

Go to the YA Scavenger Hunt page to find out all about the hunt. There are eight contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all! I am a part of the PURPLE TEAM--but there is also a red team, an orange team, a gold team, a green team, a teal team, a blue team, and a pink team for a chance to win a whole different set of books!

If you'd like to find out more about the hunt, see links to all the authors participating, and see the full list of prizes up for grabs, go to the YA Scavenger Hunt page



Directions: Below, you'll notice that I've hidden my favorite number. Collect the favorite numbers of all the authors on the purple team, and then add them up (don't worry, you can use a calculator!). 

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 Sunday, April 8th, at noon Pacific Time. Entries sent without the correct number or without contact information will not be considered.


And now that we've got all of the technical details out of the way... onto the author I'm hosting on this leg of the hunt! I'm utterly thrilled to welcome...



About the Author
Shaila Patel is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators and the Romance Writers of America. She's a pharmacist by training, a medical office manager by day, and a writer by night. She loves craft beer, tea, and reading in cozy window seats—but she'll read anywhere. You might find her sneaking in a few paragraphs at a red light or gushing about her favorite books online. 
About the Book 
"Empath Liam Whelan is determined to protect the girl he loves, Laxshmi ""Lucky"" Kapadia, at all costs--even if it means breaking her heart to keep her alive. Stopping the joining cold means Liam's life is in danger from the Soul Seekers and the ruthless Minister Gagliardi who now has designs on Lucky. Liam has no choice but to find the strength to fight his desires, fight the joining, and fight fate.

After the unthinkable happens, Lucky's ""hallucinations"" work double-time. Heartbroken and plagued by doubts, she meets a man who gives her a mind-blowing explanation to her situation. Her apparent savior provides her with an escape from her hell: run away with him or return to her drab existence with unanswered questions and watch Liam move on with her heart in his hands. All Lucky ever craved was to be in control of her own fate, but when her only choices fight against her heart, can she find the strength to battle for what she wants?"

Amazon Preorders Open for CINDERELLA'S INFERNO

The moment you've all... okay, fine, that I'VE been waiting for is here... paperback preorder links are starting to appear for CINDERELLA'S INFERNO!
The only available links as of writing this post are on Amazon (I've checked .com & .ca), but this no doubt means more links will be going up very soon. As they're available, I'll be adding them to the book page on this website, which you can find via the navigation bar. Currently, the only version up for preorder is the paperback, but it will also be available digitally (ebook, MOBI), so presumably those will go up sooner or later as well.
And YES, I will be running a preorder campaign for this book too, so just like last time, please keep your receipts / email confirmations for when that launches! It will likely be the first week of May, and I'll post about it everywhere -- here, social, and in my newsletter -- so you won't miss out.
In the meantime, here are those links! As always, thank you so much for your support. Preorders mean a LOT to authors, so please know that I'd take each and every one of you out for a hot beverage and a cookie if I could. love 

Cinderella's Inferno Releases May 29th!

You heard it here first, folks! The sequel to CINDERELLA, NECROMANCER is CINDERELLA'S INFERNO, and it's releasing on May 29th, 2018!
That's sooner than I even expected, but it's also exciting to be able to get this book to readers in my favorite month of the year (it's my wedding anniversary month, also the best month to visit Walt Disney World, also it's not too hot and not too cold, ice cream shops start to open, there's a long weekend... I could go on... lol).
More info and the cover will be coming soon! Keep an eye on the navigation at the top of this site -- I'll add the synopsis (and cover) as soon as I have the go-ahead to do so.
