YASH Scavenger Hunt

Every year the good people at YASH put on a Scavenger Hunt and this year is no exception.

I am participating this year on the BLUE TEAM.

What does that mean?

1) Well, first of all, I am offering 1 amazing giveaway that you will want to enter - it's separate from the main event which means your odds of winning are even better. Just enter your email address here and you can win the COMPLETE DRAGON TIDE SERIES.

2) When you're all done on this part of the hunt, you can go on to the next stop over at Melanie Hooyenga's blog. (And if you're not sure how to play you can review the "How to Hunt" document here.)

3) Look for my secret hunt number as you check out the work of the author I'm hosting on my blog - Kelly deVos!

Kelly deVos is from Gilbert, Arizona, where she lives with her high school sweetheart husband, amazing teen daughter and superhero dog, Cocoa. Her work has been featured in the New York Times as well as on Vulture, Salon, Bustle and SheKnows. Her debut novel, Fat Girl on a Plane was named one of the “50 Best Summer Reads of All Time” by Reader’s Digest magazine. Her second book, Day Zero, is available now from HarperCollins.

DAY ZERO is one cool young adult thriller set in a near future, quasi-dystopia that follows a teen hacker, Jinx Marshall, who believes that her father is responsible for triggering a political and economic crisis. She’s pursued by a shadowy, paramilitary group and while she’s on the run with her stepsiblings, she tries to learn the truth about her dad. You can follow Kelly on social media:



Kelly asked me to share some special content with you:

YASH Dream Movie Cast One of the funnest things during the writing process of a book can be visualizing what a film based on your work might look like and creating an imaginary cast of movie characters. Here’s the one I came up with for DAY ZERO: Shannon Purser as Jinx Marshall Jinx is my main character. She is a junior in high school who loves to code and play MMORPGs. When a series of attacks triggers the collapse of the government, she finds herself on the run with her brother and stepsiblings. She’s spent tons of time doing survival drills with her Doomsday Prepper father and those skills end up coming in quite handy.

While I was writing DAY ONE, I pictured Shannon Purser as Jinx. I am such a huge fan of Shannon’s – especially a Barb in Stranger Things — and I think she tends to really capture that dynamic of a female character who looks really nonthreatening but is actually really tough and determined on the inside. Jacob Trembley Charles Marshall Charles is Jinx’s super cute little brother who is into gardening. Jinx’s big motivation throughout the book is getting her brother to safety. I saw the mover Room while I was writing and thought Jacob Trembley was so cute. I think he’s a teenager now though! Jeremy Sisto as Dr. Max Marshall (Dr. Doomsday) Jinx’s dad is a strange and enigmatic character and I honestly had a really hard time figuring out what he would look like and who might play him. But, as a longtime Law & Order fan, I chose Jeremy Sisto as I think he is really good at playing strange characters that have a lot going on beneath the surface. Mackenzie Foy as MacKenna Novak I think Mackenzie Foy would make an awesome MacKenna! Loved her in The Nutcracker. Noah Centineo as Toby Novak …and Diego Tinoco as Gustavo Navarro

4) Record your secret number and keep going in the hunt because one of you will win all the books in the graphic below. Have fun!
