Join the Spring YA Scavenger Hunt with Special Content from @melaniehoo #YASH #TeamSilver

This hunt is now over. Congratulations to the winners. 

Hello and Welcome to my leg of the the Spring YA Scavenger Hunt.


I am Lisa Voisin, your hostess for this leg of the hunt.


This is me
(once I’ve had my hair straightened)

I’m a city girl who loves nature and lives beside a temperate rain forest at the base of a mountain.

I love coffee, but I have over two dozen different kinds of tea in my cupboard. (It’s a compulsion).

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 my team in the hunt! But play fast: this contest (and all the exclusive bonus material) will only be online until noon PST on Sunday, April 3rd!

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 NINE contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or ALL of them! I am a part of the SILVER TEAM but there is also a  whole bunch more teams and if you do those hunts too you’ll have a chance to win a plethora 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.

Looking for my exclusive bonus content? You’ll have to keep searching. Somewhere on this blog hop, I’ve hidden a dream cast for my upcoming book, The Warrior Prophet, but I may just give away a few cool things about the much anticipated conclusion to the Watcher Saga as well. Before you go on though, check out the amazing author I’m hosting. But, first, a few rules.

YASH World

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

Entry Form: Once you’ve added up all the numbers, make sure you fill out the form to officially qualify for the prizes. 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 3rd, at noon Pacific Time. Entries sent without the correct number or without contact information will not be considered.

If you’re stuck, go here.

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… Melanie Hooyenga

Melanie is the author of the YA trilogy, the Flicker Effect, about a teen who uses sunlight to travel back to yesterday. The first book, FLICKER, won first place for Middle Grade/Young Adult in the Writer’s Digest 2015 Self-Published eBook awards. When not at her day job as Communications Director at a local nonprofit, you can find her wrangling her 6-year old Miniature Schnauzer Owen and playing every sport imaginable with her husband Jeremy.

Here’s where you can find Melanie online (Social Media Links)

Melanie is showcasing her book, FLICKER

Biz is a perfectly normal teenager except for one minor detail: she uses sunlight to jump back to yesterday. She takes advantage of flickering by retaking Trig tests, fixing fights with her boyfriend (or reliving the making up), and repeating pretty much anything that could be done better. Trouble is, flickering makes her head explode from the inside. Or feel like it anyway.

No one knows about her freakish ability and she’s content to keep it that way. Guys don’t stick around because she refuses to let them in, but all that changes when Cameron, her best friend, starts looking oh-so-yummy. Suddenly she’s noticing his biceps, his smile, and the cute way his eyes crinkle when he—gah! This is her friend!

But the butterflies come to a screeching halt when little girls start disappearing, then take a nosedive when the police link the kidnappings to Cameron’s sister, who vanished years earlier. As the police grasp for clues, Biz photographs a strange man lurking in the shadows and realizes that her flickering can help more than just herself.

You can buy it here:




Exclusive Content

And here is Melanie’s content. The Pinterest board that inspired Flicker:


Lisa here with a random fact: The number 13 (that’s THIRTEEN) was once considered the number of the goddess. It also happens to be the day I was born on, and April 13th happens to be the day The Warrior Prophet releases.


SPECIAL BONUS: I’ll be giving away ebook copies of YOUR CHOICE of ONE of the first two books in The Watcher Saga:  The Watcher and The Angel Killer. All you need to do is Tweet about this page (it’s easy to use the tweet button) AND leave a comment below.

    Tweeted. Having a great time on the hunt. Had to quit at 11:00 last night and restart this morn. My eyeballs couldn’t take it after working on a computer all day.

    currently reading peregrines home for peculiar children and cyrano de bergerac. My favorite spring activity would be playing tennis.

    I’m currently reading a book called There’s No Place Like Here by Cecelia Ahern! It’s a great book and the cover is flashy too!
