Young Adult Scavenger Hunt with Diana Wagman

Dear Alison,
I've got a special treat for you. I'm participating in the Young Adult Scavenger Hunt and hosting Diana Wagman. Hold onto your scone, and let's get this party started!!

Welcome to 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 PURPLE TEAM--but there is also a red team, an orange team, a gold team, a green team, a teal team, a blue 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 October 9, at noon Pacific Time. Entries sent without the correct number or without contact information will not be considered.


Today, I am hosting Diana Wagman on Ink Sisters Write for the YA Scavenger Hunt! 

Diana is the award-winning author of five novels for adults.  Extraordinary October is her first YA.  Her stories and essays have been published in a variety of literary journals and as part of the anthologies MFA vs. NYC and LA Noir.  She is an occasional contributor to The Los Angeles Times.  She lives in LA with two huge dogs, two big kids, and only one average-sized spouse.

Extraordinary October. It's about a high school senior, October, who thinks she's completely average in every way.  A few days before her 18th birthday, she begins to change.  She's taller, she can understand animals, crows are chasing her, and it seems she can run through walls.  She's never even been kissed and now two guys are interested.  Turns out she's half fairy, half troll, heir to the kingdom of both, and someone is trying to kill her.

Extraordinary October Playlist

A detailed playlist for each character, and each character's particular magical creature and abilities.

And don't forget to enter the contest for a chance to win a ton of books by me, KIM BRIGGS, and more! To enter, you need to know that my favorite number is 15. Add up all the favorite numbers of the authors on the PURPLE TEAM and you'll have the secret code to enter for the grand prize!
