SCAVENGER HUNT PUZZLE

Today, I have the great pleasure of hosting the fabulous ALICE REEDS!

Part figure skating lover, book addict, and psychology and space nerd, Alice Reeds lives in Europe and spends most of her time typing away on another manuscript or watching one too many YouTube videos.

And now, for some awesome cover  

Blurb:

They wake on a deserted island. Fiona and Miles, high school enemies now stranded together. No memory of how they got there. No plan to follow, no hope to hold on to.

Each step forward reveals the mystery behind the forces that brought them here. And soon, the most chilling discovery: something else is on the island with them.

Something that won’t let them leave alive.

And here’s her EXCLUSIVE CONTENT!

Take it away, Alice …

Hi everyone!

I’m really excited to share some ECHOES related music with you for the YA Scavenger Hunt. I’ve loved music since I was a child, grew up with Pink Floyd and Led Zepplin playing almost daily, and now I’m obsessing over BTS and SHINee, whatever Tomorrowland set I can get my hands on, or the latest albums my favorite bands and artists have released. I have playlists for basically anything and everything and can’t write, outline, or plot without something playing in the background.

So, today I have three playlists for you, the official ECHOES playlist, as well as one short one for each of my main characters. To be quite honest, putting together the character specific ones was way harder than the book playlist. How do you summarize a character through the use of just three songs? I barely even know which songs I would pick for myself! But, somehow, I’ve managed to do it.

Hope you’ll enjoy this musical insight into my book and happy hunting!

Alice

 T.A. Maclagan!

24+

 

Bio: T.A. Maclagan is a Kansas girl by birth but now lives in the bush-clad hills of Wellington, New Zealand with her Kiwi husband, son and four pampered cats. With a bachelor’s degree in biology and a Ph.D. in anthropology, she’s studied poison dart frogs in the rainforests of Costa Rica, howler monkeys in Panama and the very exotic and always elusive American farmer. It was as she was writing her ‘just the facts’ dissertation that T.A. felt the call to pursue something more imaginative and discovered a passion for creative writing.

 

For more information you can find her online at:

The book  is showcasing in the YA Scavenger Hunt this season is her very first novel

They Call Me Alexandra Gastone

They Call Me Alexandra Gastone
 

 

Blurb: Alexandra Gastone has a simple plan: graduate high school, get into Princeton, work for the CIA, and serve her great nation. She was told the plan back when her name was Milena Rokva, back before the real Alexandra and her family were killed in a car crash.

Milena was trained to be a sleeper agent by Perun, a clandestine organization from her true homeland of Olissa. There, Milena learned everything she needed to infiltrate the life of CIA analyst Albert Gastone, Alexandra’s grandfather, and the ranks of America’s top intelligence agency. For seven years, “Alexandra” has been on standby and life’s been good. Grandpa Albert loves her, and her strategically chosen boyfriend, Grant, is amazing. But things are about to change. Perun no longer needs her at the CIA in five years’ time. They need her active now.

Between her cover as a high school girl—juggling a homecoming dance, history reports, and an increasingly suspicious boyfriend—and her mission in this high-stakes spy game, the boundaries of her two lives are beginning to blur.
Will she stay true to the country she barely remembers, or has her loyalty shattered along with her identity?

 

Wow! How much do you love that cover, people? And the blurb makes me want to read it even more! I’d give away >> 22 << birthday wishes to have it in my hands right now!!! Did you see what I did there? With the number >> 22 <<?
