SCAVENGER HUNT POST
Today, I am hosting P.J. Hoover. P. J. (Tricia) Hoover wanted to be a Jedi, but when that didn’t work out, she became an electrical engineer instead. After a fifteen year bout designing computer chips for a living, P. J. started creating worlds of her own. She’s the award-winning author of Tut: The Story of My Immortal Life and Solstice, a super-hot twist on the Hades/Persephone myth. When not writing, P. J. spends time with her husband and two kids and enjoys practicing kung fu, solving Rubik’s cubes, and watching Star Trek.
When Edie’s parents are killed, it is only the beginning of her reality slipping away. After her brother Thomas is taken from her, Edie is forced on a journey toward a destination that has no explanation in the real world.
Along the way, Edie meets Cole, and together, along with a group of other kids their exact same age, they are forced into a game of the gods, entering the labyrinth, a virtual reality landscape. It’s a battle for the ultimate prize: the power of the gods, if the gods actually exist. The labyrinth not only turns Edie and her friends against each other, it reflects the worst of themselves back. Everyone wants to win. Only one can survive.
Cover reveal for A BURIED SPARK, the final book in the Game of the Gods trilogy!
A BURIED SPARK
One Final Chance Remains.
The hope for the world has never looked more grim. Edie and Taylor are stranded at the boundary of the Nether Zone with no way to enter. Owen has a huge head start on finding the key and gaining control of the worlds, both virtual and real. And Cole is gone, leaving with Pia, making clear his true feelings for Edie. But Edie is not willing to give up, not so long as there is still a chance to save the world.
Edie and Taylor have the Oculus which gives them the ability to see through the many layers of the simulation. They set out to find the key, but unknown to them, they’re being hunted by a threat more deadly than anything they’ve seen so far in the game. This predator has powers they’ve never dreamed possible and never prepared for. One mistake could cost everything.

Abigail Johnson was born in Pennsylvania. When she was twelve, her family traded in snowstorms for year-round summers and moved to Arizona. Abigail chronicled the entire cross-country road trip in a purple spiral-bound notebook that she still has, and has been writing ever since. She became a tetraplegic after breaking her neck in a car accident when she was seventeen but hasn’t let that stop her from bodysurfing in Mexico, writing and directing a high-school production of Cinderella, and riding roller coasters every chance she gets. She is the author of several young adult novels including If I Fix You and Every Other Weekend.
