Welcome to 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! At this hunt, you not only get access to exclusive content from each author, but 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 72 hours!

Go to the YA Scavenger Hunt page to find out all about the hunt. There are FIVE contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all! I am a part of the BLUE TEAM–but there is also a red team, a blue team, a green team, a pink team, and a purple team for a chance to win a whole different set of books! If you’d like to find out more about the hunt, see links to all the authors participating, and see the full list of prizes up for grabs, go to the YA Scavenger Hunt page.

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.

A Broken Truce (Game of the Gods Book 1)

By P. J. Hoover

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!


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.


And don’t forget to enter the contest for a chance to win a ton of books by me, P. J., and more! To enter, you need to know that my favorite number is 3. Add up all the favorite numbers of the authors on the blue team and you’ll have all the secret code to enter for the grand prize!


Want a chance to win even more books? I’m giving away a set of If I Fix You, and The First to Know! Enter by filling out the Rafflecopter widget below. This giveaway is open internationally.

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. She is represented by Kim Lionetti at BookEnds Literary Agency.
