Hi! I’m Julie Reece, your host for this stop on the hunt.
I like cats, horses, kids, books and movies. Okay, but not in that order.
And all of which is neither here nor there, as far as the contest goes.
So … if you want to, you can visit the YA Scavenger Hunt page to find out all about the hunt. There are SIX contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all! I am a part of the RED TEAM –but there is also a BLUE, GREEN, GOLD, PINK, & PURPLE team for a chance to win a whole different set of books!

Today, I am hosting the fabulous Erin Cashman on my
website for the YA Scavenger Hunt!
Erin Cashman is the award-winning author of The Exceptionals, and Uncharted releasing in the Fall of 2018. She is the workshop coordinator and a permanent mentor at AYAP , and lives in Massachusetts with her husband, three children, and their energetic rescue dog.
Seventeen-year-old Annabeth prefers the fantasy of her books and paintings to reality—because in reality, her mom is dead, and it was all her fault. When she accompanies her father to the funeral of some family friends who drowned, she’s surprised to find her grief reflected in the face of Griffin Bradford, the son of the couple who died. Griffin is nothing like the carefree boy she once knew. Now he’s irritable, removed, and he’s under police investigation for his parents’ deaths.
One night following the memorial service, Annabeth’s dad goes missing in the woods, and she suspects Griffin knows more about the disappearance than he’s letting on. He refuses to answer her questions, particularly those related to the mysterious “expedition” his parents took to Ireland, where they went missing for seven months.
Annabeth fears her father isn’t lost, but rather a victim of something sinister. She launches her own investigation, tracing clues that whisper of myth and legend and death, until she stumbles upon a secret. One that some would die to protect, others would kill to expose—and which twists Annabeth’s fantasy and reality together in deadly new ways.
Hi everyone. I’m Erin Cashman and I’m so excited to share the Novel Aesthetic for UNCHARTED!
A Novel Aesthetic is a great way to visualize the setting, characters, and tone of a book. UNCHARTED takes place on a lake in Maine, and involves an ancient mystery, Irish myths and legends, a deadly secret society, and romance between two characters grappling with their own secrets and guilt.
Here it is!
The wonderful Renee Combs designed it for me, and I think it really captures the feel of the book!
*sorry this contest has ended*
