Hello and Welcome to the 4th YA Scavenger Hunt!

Hello! I am Colleen Houck, your hostess for this leg of the hunt.  In case you're wondering, I can't dance like Uma Thurman but I have a lot of fun trying.

On this hunt, you not only get access to exclusive content from each participating YA author, you also get a secret number. Add up the numbers, and  enter it for a chance to win a major prize--one lucky winner will receive at least 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 until noon PST on Sunday August 5th!

You can start right here or you can also go to the YA Scavenger Hunt homepage to find out all about the hunt. There are TWO contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or both! I am a part of the BLUE TEAM--but there is also a red team and if you do the red hunt you'll have 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, see the full list of prizes up for grabs, or if you get lost along the way, go to the YA Scavenger Hunt homepage.


Directions: Below, you'll notice that I've listed my favorite number. Collect the favorite numbers of all the authors on the blue team, and then add them up (don't worry, you can use a calculator!). Hint: the secret number is highlighted in RED.

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 August 5, at noon Pacific Time. Entries sent without the correct number or without contact information will not be considered.

Now that all the technical stuff is out of the way, I'll introduce the author I am hosting on this hunt. 

I am super excited to be hosting...



Not only am I excited to be hosting a male YA writer which is a first time for me but Ed writes a kind of choose your own mythological adventure series which should be very exciting for fans of my books. Before I get into that, though, here's a little about Ed.

Ed DeHoratius has taught Latin and Classics for the past seventeen years in both public and private school, including all levels of Latin, from 1 to AP, and courses in Medieval Literature, Classical Literature, and Greek and Roman Archaeology. He has published three Latin textbooks as well as the Follow Your Fates series. In his spare time, he spends time with his wife and three sons, and he enjoys cooking, woodworking, photography, and coaching, playing, and watching soccer.

He sounds like a pretty cool guy to hang out with and I'd love to take a couple of his classes! Here's his latest book.


The Exile of Aeneas enlists you the reader as the main character in this classic epic of ancient Rome. You assume the identity of the Trojan hero Aeneas, follow his story, and make the decisions he makes. Each decision you make will determine whether or not you continue to follow your fate, or whether your fate will quickly come to an end. Make the wrong choice, and your story ends; make the right choices, and you too can complete his quest.

I am putting up pictures of the rest of his series because the art is just cool! There are lots of interesting videos on his FOLLOW YOUR FATES website too.


Now for the top secret bonus material. An exclusive peek at an upcoming book! Click on the phrase bonus material below to be taken to a special link.


Are you back? I wonder which adventure you chose. Personally, I like to read all the options. One of my favorite Greek myths is Orpheus and Eurydice. Maybe that will be his 5 th book!

If you think this series is just what you've been looking for, you can buy your copies at the Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers, Inc.website or on Amazon.
