The YA Dash!

Welcome YA-Dashers!

The YA Dash is an awesome contest running May 18-20, 2015, featuring ten YA suspense authors. We’re offering a chance to win a grand prize of all our featured books on this race. PLUS, all participants in the YA Dash will receive a mini e-book with never-before-scene CLASSIFIED material (like deleted scenes and inside info about the books!)

Here’s how to play:

1. Visit the blog of each author in the DASH (you’ll find a list of links to those sites at the end of this post). Blogs can be visited in any order but you must visit all 10 to get the clues to unlock the rafflecopter giveaway.

2. Each author’s blog will feature a post about the DASH including three statements consisting of two truths and one lie. You must read through the author’s bio and book info pages in order to decipher which of the statements is the lie. The clue you’ll need to remember is included within that lie statement so jot this clue down.

3. The sum of the “lie statements” is the Y A Dash Entry Code that you will need to enter into the rafflecopter. Once you’ve visited all ten blogs and found all 10 clues, you’ll have what you need to unlock the rafflecopter!!! 

4. Once the rafflecopter is unlocked, you can gain more entries by tweeting about the DASH and checking out the DASH authors' social media accounts.

5. Last but not least, on the days of the YA DASH, all of us authors will be tweeting additional truths and lies about our books, characters, and lives, using the hashtags #yadash and #truthorlie. Please join the fun and tweet your own truths and lies and feel free to chime in when you think we’re lying!

SO…. Not to keep you in suspense any longer  . . . here are my statements, based on info you can find on my Bio page and my LATITUDE ZERO book page. Which one is the lie???

1.     I’ve known since I was ten years old that I wanted to be a writer.
2.     In LATITUDE ZERO, cycling superstar Juan Carlos is dead by 2:00.
3.     In LATITUDE ZERO, Tessa Taylor travels from New England to Ecuador to find out who’s really behind pro-cyclist Juan Carlos’s death.

Remember, the lie contains your clue to unlocking the numerical Rafflecopter giveaway code. THE SUM OF ALL TEN CLUES UNLOCKS THE CODE. Good luck!!! (and thank you, Full Fathom Five Digital, Lucinda Literary, and T.A. Maclagan for your vision and your organizational wizardry!)

Here are the other websites you need to visit to discover your clues:

Here's the Rafflecopter thingie for the giveaway; enter the numerical code put together from all the clues! (they should add up to the number you will put in to unlock the giveaway details!)
