Welcome to Fall 2020 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! On 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 120 hours!

About THE GREAT FOREST
Before Sarah of the Ecosystem Cycle, there was another Sarah—her mother.
A sixteen-year-old apprentice, Sarah longs for the day when she can delve beyond the confines of the village of stone. With the guidance of a young Sensor named Abraham, she learns that she possesses a unique power, one that enables her to Sense living things others cannot. But her master, Aaron, forbids her to leave the village on pain of losing her position within the Sensors’ ranks.
When an unidentified predator appears in the Great Forest surrounding the village, Sarah and Abraham are convinced that only her power can save their people from destruction. Little do they know that there are those among the Sensors who will do anything—even kill—to prevent Sarah’s secret from coming to light.
THE GREAT FOREST is an Ecosystem prequel novella that takes readers into a world where humanity fights for survival and Nature reigns supreme.
Sounds awesome, right? Pre-order it now on Amazon!
