TEAM GREEN: YA Scavenger Hunt!

Welcome to Fall 2017 YA Scavenger Hunt!

For those of you that don't know me, my name is Kim Chance and I'm the author of the upcoming contemporary fantasy novel, KEEPER! I'm your hostess for this leg of the hunt! :)

Here's a few fun facts about me:

1. I love to sing broadway showtunes (very loudly!) while I'm cleaning and doing laundry.

2. I'm a former high school English teacher and a stay at home mom! I have five year old twin girls and a 3-month old son!

3. I have an obsession with red lipstick! I don't feel like myself without it!

4. One of my favorites numbers is 29--mainly because it makes me think of my husband! (It's his birthday!)

5. My first car was a 1986 Ford Crown Victoria. It was maroon and I called it "The Tank"!

6. I have a youtube channel where I post week writing advice/tips videos! Check it out HERE.

Now, let me introduce you to the awesome author I'm hosting for the hunt!


I'm super pumped to host Deirdre Riordan Hall here on my blog!


Deirdre Riordan Hall is the author of the young adult bestsellers, Sugar and Pearl along with the Follow your Bliss series, and the romantic comedy Love, Hate, and Other Lies We Told. When she's not writing, she's probably surfing or in pursuit of magic. She also has a healthy case of wanderlust, is a major Harry Potter nerd, loves chips and salsa, and dreams about learning no less than three languages.

You can find Deirdre on Twitter, Instagram, Goodreads, Tumblr, and her author website.

Deirdre has written several novels, but on this hunt, she is featuring TIDE, Book 1 in the Sea and Salt Series!


Never trust a mermaid's kiss.

Tyler McColdrum has a bright future on the professional surfing circuit until his father tragically dies at sea. Unable to pay the bills, Tyler and his mother leave California and move to his late grandfather's cottage in Land's End, Maine—a world away from the life he's known. Not even the stormy Atlantic can douse Tyler's surf stoke, but when mariners go missing off the coast, legends as old as the sea itself suggest something lurks beneath the surface. As the police investigate, his friend Kiwa—the only female surfer for miles—indicates there's more to the McColdrum family history than blood and bone.

Amara is a beautiful mermaid, a mero, who wants a life on land away from her sinister sisters. As charming as mero are, with musical voices and a tempting gaze, they're also brutal and cruel, stealing the souls of sailors. As Initiation nears, Amara learns Poseidon selected her as consort and her desperation for freedom increases. When Tyler encounters Amara, he falls hard for her. The ocean is no longer safe for him, but he trusts their love can overcome her mero nature. As locals and officials wage war against the sea, trying to keep mariners safe, Tyler and Amara struggle with how to protect each other. With one foot in the sand and the other in the sea, Tyler must choose love or the surf as the tide quickly rises.

A note from Deirdre:

Hi Yashers! I'm so glad you're checking out the exclusive content from Tide & Anchored. Tyler, a surfer, learns never to trust a mermaid's kiss in the two book Sea & Sand series about forbidden love, an angry sea king, and a group of friends trying to solve a mystery.

I've been told TIDE is a very atmospheric novel. Makes sense since it takes place on the moody, rocky shores of far northeast shores of the U.S. I live in sunny California, so to keep my head in the gloomy game, I curated a Pinterest board that I want to share with you.

Although Land's End is a fictional town, I've spent a lot of time in New England, Maine in particular. If you've never been, don't worry, it's not gloomy all the time. In fact, it's one of the most beautiful places I've been—and I've traveled a lot.

I also surf, riding a long board, which is a bit different than Tyler and his short board skills. Although the water up north is very chilly, people do surf year round, provided they have lots of protection. I've yet to see a mermaid when I'm out on water, but you never know! If I do, I'll consider myself very lucky.

Have a look at my Pinterest board and tell me what you think!

Don't forget, I'm giving away three digital copies of TIDE as a bonus drawing so you can get a head start reading the series! Hop on over to my blog to enter. Oh, and come hang out with me! I'm most active on Instagram where I post lots of pics of my dog, the beach, and my writing projects.

Thank you, Kim, for hosting!
