YA Scavenger Hunt: TEAM GREEN!!

This is Elizabeth Holloway's post for the GREEN TEAM. If you are looking for Dorothy Dreyer's post for the BLUE TEAM click here! 

Yippee! The hunt is ON!

Welcome to 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 signed 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 GREEN TEAM--but there is also a red team, a gold team, an orange team, a blue team, a pink team, a teal team, and a purple team for a chance to win a whole different set of signed 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 listed my favorite number. Collect the favorite numbers of all the authors on the GREEN 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 April 5th, at noon Pacific Time. Entries sent without the correct number or without contact information will not be considered.

And now, I am delighted to introduce J.R. Johansson! Today, she gives us peek into a day in her life!

J.R. Johansson is the author of Insomnia, Paranoia, and the third and final installment to be released in July, Mania. She has a B.S. degree in public relations and a background in marketing. She credits her abnormal psychology minor with inspiring many of her characters. J.R. Johansson lives on the foothills of the Utah mountains with her two sons and a wonderful husband. Visit her at

Seventeen-year-old Charlotte barely escaped from her abusive parents. Her little brother, Sam, wasn't as lucky. Now she's trying to begin the new life she always dreamed of for them, but never thought she'd have to experience alone. She's hired a techie-genius with a knack for forgery to remove the last ties to her old life. But while she can erase her former identity, she can’t rid herself of the memories. And her troubled history won’t let her ignore the little girl she sees one day in the park. The girl with the bruises and burn marks.

That’s when Charlotte begins to receive the messages. Threatening notes left in her apartment--without a trace of entry. And they’re addressed to Piper, her old name. As the messages grow in frequency, she doesn’t just need to uncover who is leaving them; she needs to stop whoever it is before anyone else she loves ends up dead.

Hello Awesome Scavenger Hunters!

First, I want to send a big thanks to Elizabeth for hosting me!

On this stop, I thought it might be fun to take a break from reading and watch a short video! Below, you’ll find a little sneak peek into an average day for a YA Thriller Author…if there is such a thing as an average day.

As part of the hunt today, we’ll be highlighting my recent release, Cut Me Free (FSG/Macmillan – Jan 2015), but I also want to celebrate the upcoming release of Mania, the third and final book in the Insomnia (Night Walkers) trilogy. Mania will release July 8th and since I’ve never finished an entire series before, I’ll be hosting a separate giveaway back on my blog to celebrate!

So, watch the video and don’t forget to stop by my blog later for more chances to win!

Happy Scavenging!

J.R. Johansson
