This is me, your fairly non-threatening host for this part of the hunt. I’m Kady Cross, and I write a bunch of stuff — currently about ghosts. I have 4 cats, love the color pink, and have more makeup than anyone could ever possibly use. Still, I’m going to try. Somewhere on this page, I’ve hidden my favorite number. It will appear in TEAL. That’s the number you need to add up with all the others on Team TEAL in order to have a chance at winning. Also, somewhere on this hunt, I’ve hidden a playlist for SISTERS OF SALT AND IRON, my newest book (released today!)
A little history of the YA Scavenger Hunt – This bi-annual 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 72 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 TEAL TEAM–but there is also a red team, an orange team, a gold team, a green team, a teal team, a blue team, a purple team, and a pink team for a chance to win a whole different set of books! How incredibly awesome is that?
“I have a very visual imagination, and I’m very interested in graphic art, illustration, and comic books. For a while I wanted to make 13 Days of Midnight into a graphic novel, although I don’t think I’m really a good enough artist to draw professionally yet, so I wrote it out as a regular novel. Although I don’t think that what a character looks like is the most important thing about them, when designing an unusual group of characters like the ghosts Luke inherits, I wanted more of a handle on what they looked like, so I made a lot of drawings of them. These are the Judge and the Prisoner, two of the less pleasant ghosts that Luke meets. I always liked designing villains and I had a lot of fun with these two characters.”
