YA Scavenger Hunt – Meet Megan Shepard

YA Scavenger Hunt! It’s on!
image This bi-annual event was first organized by author Colleen Houck as a way to give readers a chance to gain access to exclusive bonusmaterial from their favorite authors…and a chance to win some prizes! During 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 signed book from each author on the hunt in my team!  I am on TEAM GOLD

Just look at who is on my crazy cool team!  WOWZA!  Today, I am delighted to be hosting Megan Shepherd on my website for the YA Scavenger Hunt! I really loved her book The Madman’s Daughter and am looking forward to her new series!

How do I play?  Go to the YA Scavenger Hunt page.

Directions: Below, you’ll notice that I’ve listed my favorite number. Collect the favorite numbers of all the authors on the GOLD TEAM, and then add them up (don’t worry, you can use a calculator!).  Once you’ve added up all the numbers, make sure you fill out the form here to officially qualify for the grand prize. Only entries that have the correct number will qualify.

There are SIX contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all! I am a part of the GOLD TEAM–but there is also a green team, a blue team, a pink team, an orange team, a red team, a teal team, and a purple team for a chance to win a whole different set of signed books!

This contest is open internationally, anyone below the age of 18 should have a parent or guardian’s permission to enter. To be eligible for the grand prize, you must submit the completed entry form by APRIL 5TH, at noon Pacific Time. Entries sent without the correct number or without contact information will not be considered.

Today, I am delighted to be hosting Megan Shepherd .
Megan Shepherd is the author of The Madman’s Daughter trilogy, an ABA Best Book for Children and the NC Young Adult Book Award winner, and The Cage trilogy (coming May 2015). She lives on a farm outside of Asheville, NC.  You can find out more about Megan here and you can pre-order her new book The Cage now.
In this gripping new series teens are held captive in a human zoo by an otherworldly race. They realize that their captivity is more terrifying than they could ever imagine: Their captors aren’t from Earth. And they have taken the five teenagers for an otherworldly zoo—where the exhibits are humans.

Behold!  THE CAGE official playlist

Hi all, Megan here. I wanted to share with you some of the music that inspired me to write THE CAGE, my new YA sci-fi series coming this summer. These songs capture feelings the characters in THE CAGE go through, like being far from home, and the fear of being trapped, and falling in love with the wrong person.

MY BODY IS A CAGE, Arcade Fire

E.T., Katy Perry


CASUAL AFFAIR, Panic! At the Disco



IN A CAGE, Black Belles


I hope you enjoy listening to them as much as I do! Thanks to my friends Jeremy and Jason for introducing me to many of the tracks.
