Welcome to the I ❤️ NA/YA Scavenger Hunt, sponsored by the authors of Cursed Lands, a limited edition Young & New Adult Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, and Dystopian Collection!

Let’s get right to the hunt!  This massive scavenger hunt is officially OPEN on February 1—this is your chance to meet some new YA and NA authors, grab a bunch of free books, and sign up to win a whole bunch of epic prizes! In addition to the $100 grand prize, many of the authors will be offering free books and other prizes.


Each author will be given a special keyword, which will be bolded and all caps like this: CURSED.

All you have to do is visit all the author’s sites in the correct order (laid out below), write down the special keywords in their blog post to discover the short story, then enter the giveaway with the completed secret story at the bottom of this page!

There will be one main giveaway for the Grand Prize, but most of the participating authors will also have smaller giveaways for free books, gift cards, or author swag, so make sure you read their post carefully to see what else they’re offering while you’re on their site for the keyword!!! If you have trouble finding the keyword, click on the author’s “Blog,” look for the post about the I ❤️ NA/YA Scavenger Hunt, and you should be able to find the bolded word!
