Summer Reads Scavenger Hunt! #SRScavHunt

16th - 19th July 2014

Welcome to the Summer Reads Scavenger Hunt! It was organized to help bring authors of all publishing backgrounds together in a show of solidarity. Forty awesome authors (click HERE to see who they are) have signed up to support this event! More than forty awesome signed books* (*Thank you to Joelle Charbonneau who, although unable to participate, donated a copy of The Testing for the Grand Prize.) have been donated by these authors to make up the Grand Prize, as well as $30 worth of Amazon Gift Cards (Grand Prize is HERE). And you could win them all including my book Elemental Reality! All you have to do is hop around all blogs on the Hunt. Within the posts on every stop you will find a number. Make a note of every number from every stop. Once you have collected them all, simply add them up to calculate the total, and then hop back to here to the entry form page, fill in your details and your calculated answer and you're in! It's simple! Ready? Go find yourself an author's blog to start at HERE and go! You have until MIDNIGHT of July 20th to enter. Terms & Conditions can be found HEREGood luck!


It was hard to pick just 5 because I read so many at once. I wanted to list about 13 books but I stopped myself! So, my top 5 are as follows:

1) Jet*
2) Rome*
3) Nash*

(Books 1-3 are in the series Marked Men by Jay Crownover. They are books #2, #3, and #4. Book #1 is Rule. There are also two more books in that series, Rowdy (#5) and Asa (#6). They're in the NA (New Adult) genre. I'M IN LOVE WITH THEM!)


Today I am hosting S. J. Pajonas, author of the Nogiku series and Love in the Digital Age series. This giveaway is INTERNATIONAL! Her prize is as follows:

-- A signed paperback of Removed (The Nogiku Series #1)
-- A set of Japanese Ukiyo-e Sumo Wrestling Postcards
-- A pack of Japanese Origami Paper

Below you'll find a picture of the her prize and also the Rafflecopter you'll need to fill out. Should the winner of this raffle ALSO win the grand prize for the scavenger hunt, S.J. will instead send a signed copy of Released (The Nogiku Series, #2) since Removed is part of the grand prize!
