The YAmazing Race with MGnificent Prizes!





Update: The YAmazing Race is now over! Check the Apocalypsies blog for a list of grand prize winners! The winner for my giveaway is...bn100 who won a signed copy of The Mapmaker and the Ghost. Thanks so much to everyone who played!

We did this in January and it was so much fun that we're doing it again! 

So...welcome to the YAmazing Race with MGnificent prizes: a blog hop with 50+ debut authors involving a ton of prizes like books, swag, gift certificates and more (including a signed hardcover copy 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. (You will also find out five gruesome, yet fun, ways the world could come to an end -- animal style). File away the book info in your head because you will then use it to take a short quiz. There will be six quizzes in all. You can do one, you can do them all. Naturally, I recommend being thorough (because you will have a much better chance of winning awesome prizes and 100% chance of learning about awesome books.)

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.


Got it? Ready to find out about the next awesome Apocalypsie book? Go here to J. Anderson Coats' website to learn all about THE WICKED AND THE JUST.

Oh and guess what? I'm giving away another signed hardcover 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.
