The YAmazing Race with MGnificent Prizes


Update: The race is officially over but thank you SO MUCH to everyone who played (and especially everyone who entered my ARC contest. It was incredibly fun to "meet" so many new people and read your comments)! Winners for the big race will be announced soon and you can check out the winner of my contest below.

I am so excited to be part of the YAmazing Race with MGnificent prizes: a blog hop with 50+ debut authors involving a ton of prizes (including a signed ARC of The Mapmaker and the Ghost)!

How does it work, you might ask? Well, first, make sure you've gone here to the Apocalypsies blog for the complete rules. From there, you're going to be led to a series of our blogs where you'll learn a little bit about each of our books. File away the info in your head because you will then use it to take a short quiz. There will be five quizzes in all and you must complete all 5 to be eligible for a prize pack. Most right answers win (with a random selection in case of a tie)!

Got that?

So, without further ado, here's a little bit about my book:


The Mapmaker and the Ghost by Sarvenaz Tash

Goldenrod Moram loves nothing better than a good quest. Intrepid, curious, and full of a well-honed sense of adventure, she decides to start her own exploring team fashioned after her idols, the explorers Lewis and Clark, and to map the forest right behind her home. This task is complicated, however, by a series of unique events—a chance encounter with a mysterious old lady has her searching for a legendary blue rose. Another encounter lands her in the middle of a ragtag gang of brilliant troublemakers. And when she stumbles upon none other than the ghost of Meriwether Lewis himself, Goldenrod knows this will be anything but an ordinary summer . . . or an ordinary quest.


Think you're ready to take the first quiz? You're in luck, because that's exactly where my blog will lead you. Go here to take it.

Oh and guess what? I'm giving away another signed ARC of The Mapmaker and the Ghost and some swag right here on this blog! Just fill out the Rafflecopter form below -- you'll see there are extra ways to get entries by leaving a comment, following me on Twitter, liking me on Facebook, following my blog or adding my book to your Goodreads shelf. My contest will be open until Sunday, January 22nd at 11: 59 PM EST.

Good luck!

  15. I entered in the rafflecopter giveaway, and then saw on the bottom that it wasn't international. So if I win it'll be going to my friend, a resident of the US-- if that's alright?
