Hello and welcome to the April Fool's Scavenger Hunt!

I am Brodi Ashton

... and I'll be your hostess at this stop.YOU ARE CURRENTLY BLOG HOPPING ON TEAM YELLOW!

For you first timers, the YA Scavenger Hunt is an online blog hop sponsored by authors who write books for both Young Adults and the Young at Heart. 
As part of the hunt, I get to host the amazing AMY PLUM. Also, I have some secret content floating around out there (It's an exclusive scene from the sequel to EVERNEATH) that you'll get to find as well. 

So here's what you do, in four easy steps:

1. I am hosting a guest author. Read her bonus material and check out her book!
2. Find the special letter hidden in this post (in large, bold yellow) and write it down. (You'll need all the letters at the end of the hunt)
3. Enter my personal giveaway below (You'll find the requirements below. I'm giving away a signed/personalized copy of EVERNEATH, and a Guitar Pick Necklace) (Also, you'll need to answer a question about the EVERNEATH sequel bonus material)
4. At the bottom of this post, you'll find a link to the next stop on the scavenger hunt. Off you go!
(Official Instructions below) 

Have you already been here? Are you stuck? Confused? Lost? All will be well. You can click HERE;  to go to the YA Scavenger Hunt homepage to figure out which authors you missed.

It is my good fortune to be hosting author AMY PLUM!


Amy Plum spent her childhood in Birmingham, Alabama, her twenties in Chicago and Paris, and *cough* a few more years in London and New York. These days she can be found writing in a Parisian café or in her centuries-old farmhouse in the Loire Valley

For this hunt AMY is featuring her book called



Kate has chosen to leave the comfort and safety of her human world in order to join Vincent in the dangerous supernatural universe he inhabits. For his part, he has sworn to go against his very nature and resist the repeated deaths that are his fate as a revenant—even though it will bring him immeasurable suffering.

Heady with romance and rife with danger, the second book of the DIE FOR ME trilogy follows Vincent and Kate as they search—separately—for a solution to their plight, pursuing their quest from the glamorous streets of Paris to the city’s squalid underbelly. Although the experiment that Vincent attempts is progressively destroying him, he insists on seeing it through to the end. This prompts Kate to strike out on her own into the dangerous world of the revenants to find another way. But she unwittingly puts everyone she loves at risk when she discovers a family of ancient healers who hold the key to a secret that could help the bardia—the good revenants—overthrow their murderous enemies, the numa, forever.

And while the lovers search for something they have little chance of finding, a new threat arises among the numa. Kate finds herself in the midst of an ancient and deadly war, not as a bystander…but as a target.


For more information on AMY and her books, check out her website HERE.

  1. This comment has been removed by the author.

  2. Marley Gibson's page says to sent you a email asking for the chapter? Is it or am I just dreaming?

  3. No, the extra scene should be on HER blog. I'm in the middle of trying to contact her so she can put it up....

    Hopefully it will be remedied soon!

  4. I know I emailed you this, but I thought it would be fun as a comment too because no one can have too much comment love. :)
