At 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 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 five days!

Go to 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!

About “The Bargaining”

When Penny Warren agrees to live in the North Woods with her stepmother, she thinks she’s renovating the old Carver House. She thinks she’ll finally escape the death of her best friend, Rae.
But the North Woods are lonely, and they have no intention of letting Penny escape anything.
Oooooo… Sounds Creepy.

 And here’s an exclusive post from Carly!

Hey, YASHers! Thanks for participating in this season’s YA Scavenger Hunt. I’m so thrilled to join in the fun again this fall. So, for this exclusive bonus offering, I wanted to let you in on a little of the exploration I did while searching for a setting to inspire THE BARGAINING.

whidbey-island-2 I was still relatively new to the Pacific Northwest, and while I was pretty certain I wanted the fictional town of Point Finney to emulate certain characteristics of some of the towns I imagined existed around the north and south Sound, I hadn’t visited enough of the many, many towns that the northwest coast has to offer. Fortunately, my brother and sister-in-law had already been living in the area for some time, so they were able to offer up a few places for me to start.

whidbey-island-3-jpgI was especially intrigued by Whidbey Island – an actual island floating in the north Sound (I’ve come to find there are many islands in the area). This one, though, held a certain intrigue for me. I tried SO HARD, dear YASHers, to find the pictures I took of the downtown and the surrounding farmland, patches of wooded areas, and beaches that fed my imagination. Alas, they’re lost in the Cloud somewhere. But these pics do the area more justice than I could have on my iPhone. The town is breathtaking, and the people were so nice. If you visit, the Need & Feed is a must. They make their own bread, and you can smell it for blocks. For all you writers out there, a well-known writers’ residency called Hedgebrook also calls Whidbey its home.

whidbey-island-1-jpgThe folks in Point Finney – and the secrets they’re keeping – are not at all what I found in Whidbey, and I’m just morbid enough to have been disappointed by that. I was really hoping for a dismal experience so I could work from a solid platform. Instead, Point Finney is more a reflection of what I thought Whidbey could have been given sadder circumstances … and a much deeper forest.

Good luck on the rest of your hunt!

Hugs, Carly
