Welcome to the Autumn 2014 Scavenger Hunt. You have arrived at Stop #21. The hunt begins at noon (Mountain Time Zone) on October 17, 2014. You may have arrived here before the start, which could mean all of the sites aren’t ready quite yet. Once the official start has begun, you should go to Stop #1  and then work your way through the sites, gathering clues and entering bonus giveaways, until you reach the final stop which will also be on the site of Robin Lee Hatcher.

The hunt ends on Sunday, October 19, 2014 at one minute before midnight (Mountain). That means you have the whole weekend to finish it, so take your time. Enjoy reading the exclusive content the authors have prepared for you. You will collect a CLUE IN RED at each stop. Write them down as you go. At the end of the hunt, you will enter the clues into a Rafflecopter form. (The answer will make sense, even if you aren’t familiar with the quote.)

The hunt is open to international entries. The grand prize is a Kindle Fire HDX. Two runners-up will receive a new release from each of the participating authors.

 

 IN CASE YOU FIND A BROKEN LINK…

Robin Lee Hatcher has prepared a “cheat sheet” with direct links to each author’s post in case a site goes down or a link gets broken. We hope there will be no such issues, but just in case, please make note of the URL for the Participating Authors & Stops page so you can check back and be able to complete the hunt.

 

INTRODUCING JILL WILLIAMSON AND HER LATEST RELEASE: REBEL

JillWilliamsonSmall

Now I’d like you to meet the multi award-winning Jill Williamson. She’s a fellow Oregonian and all around amazing person and author. I love running into Jill at conferences and book signings. She’s smart, fun, and a great writer!

She’s also is a chocolate loving, daydreaming, creator of kingdoms and the award-winning author of several young adult books including the Blood of Kings trilogy and Captives. She’s a Whovian, a Photoshop addict, and a recovering fashion design assistant, who was raised in Alaska. She blogs for teen writers at www.goteenwriters.com, and you can also visit her online at www.jillwilliamson.com.

Jill’s latest release is RebelHere’s a brief description:

rebelsThe remnant of Glenrock has been scattered. But they are not beaten.

The Safe Lands have long kept the true meaning of Liberation secret from their people. But after being sentenced to Liberation themselves, Mason and Omar soon discover the truth.

Levi watched his brothers’ public sentencing and tries to hold out hope they are still alive, He is forced to focus his attention elsewhere, however, when his new wife, Jemma, is captured and made the Safe Lands’ newest Queen. His only choice to save Jemma may be to take up Omar’s old role of undercover vigilante, leading the rebels in their quest to overthrow the government. But will Levi’s new role be enough?

Meanwhile, Jemma’s sister, Shaylinn, is ready to give birth to the “Safe Lands’” children … but not even Ciddah is sure they can be delivered safely in the midst of a rebellion. And Mason must face the fact Omar’s illness could be fatal.

If they can all unite their efforts, together they may be able to expose the Safe Lands’ lies to the people. But if they fail, they will all surely die.

Sounds great, doesn’t it? You can buy copies of Jill’s books at:

Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Christian Book

Now Jill has some thoughts on her series to share with you

5 Things that Remind Me of the Safe Lands

My Safe Lands series is dystopian, like The Hunger Games or Divergent, so it takes place in the future. Regardless, there are things I see now and then that instantly remind me of my storyworld.

Here are the five things I see most often that transport me to the Safe Lands.

1. Beth Moore

I came up with this story while in my ladies Bible study. We were working through Beth Moore’s study on Daniel. She asked us to think about some teenage boys we knew and how they might cope if they were taken from their homes and forced to live as captives in a modern-day Babylon. I couldn’t stop thinking about that scenario, and that’s where my book Captives came from. It tells the story of three brothers who’ve been taken prisoner in a city that is anything but safe.

And every time I see Beth or one of her books, I think of those brothers!

2. Tattoos

In my dystopian city, there is a technology that allows virtual tattoos. This is done by getting chips injected under the skin that can display simulated artwork—or SimArt—on the outside of the skin. So every time I see tattoos, they remind me of the SimArt in my books.

3. Cigarettes

Everyone in the Safe Lands has a disease, and meds are given through personal vaporizers, also called PVs. These are similar to electronic cigarettes. In the Safe Lands, anything can be vaped: meds, candy, alcohol, drugs. So whenever I see someone smoking, I think of the PVs in the Safe Lands.

4. Doctor’s offices

Since everyone in the Safe Lands has a disease, several of the scenes in my books take place in an exam room. I can’t go to the doctor’s office myself or with my kids without getting an eerie feeling of being in the Safe Lands. Yikes!

5. Reporters

There are two reporters in the Safe Lands who communicate everything to the public. Finley Gray and Luella Flynn also host the Finley and Flynn Morning Show. These two are the people everyone looks to for fashion advice, celebrity gossip, and the truth. I get a little shudder when I see reporters on TV, wondering if what they’re telling me is true or false.

Thank you, Jill for another great series!

    I enjoy reading Amish fiction because it shows such clean and upright standards in the midst of this crazy world. I don’t have to be exposed to a gruesome scene just to read a great work of fiction.

    I truly enjoy Amish fiction. It’s so refreshing to read how people live a simpler life and are happy doing so. We all need to step back now and then and appreciate what we have.

  8. I’ve always loved Taming of the Shrew, and the fact that you took the premise of that play and wrapped it in Amish fiction was a great combination!

    • Kate
      Oct 18, 2014

      I have never read any of your books, but I love Taming of the Shrew and Much Ado about Nothing. I would love the chance to read your books. The idea of resetting Shakespeare in Amish stories is awesome!

    did you know that there’s a mystery surrounding who really wrote Shakespeare’s works.

    • Leslie Gould
      Oct 17, 2014

      Katie, Yes–it’s fascinating isn’t? I think it’s a valid argument that it was someone besides William Shakespeare. I wish we could know for sure.

    I am an avid reader but I have not ventured into the genre of Amish fiction. In Indiana and Ohio where I grew up we had both Amish and Mennonite communities. I’m sure the appeal to Amish fiction is the simplicity of life! Is that the feedback that you get from your readers?
    We’ve lived on our farm for a year and a half now and the hard work and slow pace is rewarding.

    Much Ado About Nothing is my all-time favorite Shakespeare play – love the play, love the movies, used to teach it every year to my advanced readers, so it holds a special place in my heart. Would love to read your version of the story!

    • Leslie Gould
      Oct 17, 2014

      I love that you taught Much Ado! I added most of Hero’s conflict to Bea in Becoming Bea, to give my main character the stronger story arc. It was a lot of fun to work through all of that. I don’t think Shakespeare would mind since his plays were adaptations of other stories. 🙂

  32. Laurel

  40. Jen L.
    Oct 17, 2014

    I like to watch Shakespeare but don’t really like reading it for myself. My favorite play is probably Midsummers Night Dream.

    • Leslie Gould
      Oct 17, 2014

      Yeah, the plays are really meant to be seen. 🙂 My novel Minding Molly is a retelling of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. It was so much fun to write!

  41. Cindy
    Oct 17, 2014

    Have a dear friend who is Amish and always love learning more about the culture. Amish fiction reminds me of her and the good times we have spent together.

    • Leslie Gould
      Oct 17, 2014

      That’s really sweet, Cindy. 🙂 I’m working on a series called the Neighbors of Lancaster family right now, about an Amish woman and an Englisch woman/military wife who become friends.

    I liked Courting Cate! I haven’t read the others yet..they are on my TBR list.

  46. Jill Stengl
    Oct 17, 2014

    Hi Leslie! I read Courting Cate recently and loved it. I fully intend to read the entire series, whether or not I win! 🙂 The tie-ins to Shakespeare are delightful. I visited his birthplace and Anne Hathaway’s cottage years ago, yet I have read only a few of his plays. Tragic, right? Hamlet is my favorite so far. 🙂

    • Leslie Gould
      Oct 17, 2014

      How fun that you’ve been to Stratford-upon-Avon! I’d love to go someday. I really like Hamlet too–I couldn’t figure out how to incorporate that in an Amish story though, lol.

  47. Jennifer Green
    Oct 17, 2014

    I have to say that I LOVE Amish fiction! I read alot of historical Christian fiction but Amish themed books are my favorite by far!

  48. Megan
    Oct 17, 2014

    I loved Courting Cate & Adoring Addie. Haven’t gotten to Minding Molly yet. I enjoy Amish fiction much more than Shakespeare most days. As an English teacher there are days when I wish Shakespeare wasn’t important and could be skipped. I still can’t read parts of Romeo and Juliet without laughing or cringing as I remember some past high school freshman’s interpretation of the bard. One of my favorites is Twelfth Night which I why I won’t teach it. I don’t want it destroyed. I do like to talk about Shakespeare in modern stories and have mentioned yours to my students.

    • Leslie Gould
      Oct 17, 2014

      Megan~ You made me laugh! Yeah, I can see that teaching the same play over and over could do you in. I saw Twelfth Night years ago in Ashland and really liked it. I read years ago in college too, lol. Thank you for telling your students about my stories.

    Of the two of us, my mom is the one who enjoys Amish fiction more than myself. However, I loved the ones that I have read, especially Courting Cate. We both delight in watching Shakespeare, especially Twelfth Night, Much Ado About Nothing, and Hamlet. The first of the three has to be my most-watched movie. 😀 Thank you for this opportunity to share!! Blessings, Juli

  55. Sharon Miller
    Oct 17, 2014

    I’ve read the first 3 books in your Shakespeare series and my favorite so far, has been Adoring Addie because of the struggle she had with her parents. So real.

  63. Emily Anne K
    Oct 17, 2014

    Every time I think of the Amish, I think of a friend of mine who owns a foundry. He claims to sell gear parts for both the Amish carriages and those that belong to the queen of England. It strikes me as funny that someone from a tiny little town like the one I’m from sells things so far-reaching!

    Also, I have barely read any of Shakespeare as yet and it surprises me the amount of magic is involved in the stories–from ghosts to witches to ominous weather. I have no doubt your stories will surprise me as well. Thank you for the giveaway and for participating in the scavenger hunt!

    • Leslie Gould
      Oct 17, 2014

      Emily~ I love your story about the owner of the foundry! Wow! Yes, Shakespeare does use ghosts and witches and fairies. In Minding Molly, a retelling of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, I used a toddler and a dog instead of fairies. 🙂

  64. Marianne

    I have downloaded Courting Cate, but to have the whole series would be wonderful! I love a good series….I haven’t actually read anything by Shakespeare, except maybe Romeo and Juliet in High School, many moons ago. A couple years ago, my son’s Language Arts teacher had the class do a modern version of one of his plays. We live in KY now, and we (my husband and I) were humored at hearing Shakespeare’s words said with a southern accent….it was very entertaining!

    When I was 9 years old my dad and I took a motorcycle trip to Arthor, Ill to visit friends. While we were there we noticed an Amish buggy traveling up a driveway to their home. My dad asked if I could see their horse(because I love horses). They were the nicest elderly couple and they even invited us into their lovely home. The lady of the home made me hot chocolate, it was so good.

    I’m completely hooked on the idea that these are based on Shakespeare plays! The first of his plays that I ever read was Hamlet, and it’s still my favorite. 🙂 The best part of these scavenger hunts is that I always find great books to add to my reading list! 🙂

    I would love to win your set of books ! Amish Fiction, wow, I have been a fan for years , starting with Wanda and Beverly and today I read many authors of amish fiction, not sure I can fit them both on one hand but its been sweet to see so many authors writing Amish Fiction over the years and see how its progressed into a much loved genre. I started reading over 20 years ago ! It is a peaceful and comforting genre to me. We lived in TN near the old order folks for 6 years, I would love to go back as my Son Wes lives down there today with his wife and son.
    Blessings

    Amish fiction is some of my favorite. It is so sweet and clean and sometimes edgy because you can still feel the romance and desire in the characters if well written.

    We live fairly close to Holmes County, Ohio and visit at least once a year. I love reading Amish fiction…but especially when visiting the area in the fall…which we did recently. The trees are wearing muted fashions this year…which are lovely in every way!

    I have read all of Shakespeare’s plays many years ago and just love this series of books you’ve written. I love Amish fiction because of its simplicity blended with complexity as the characters work through their problems just like we all have! Great job! Thanks for the opportunity to win! Linda

    Amish fiction is one of my favorites! I loved reading “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”

    Well, I’m as eclectic with my reading as I am with my music. Amish is in my library as well as sci-fi, historical, and contemporary romance. I shy away from horror though.

    In general, I’m not a big fan of Amish fiction. It’s okay, but not my favorite. With that said, I have read each of the books in this series so far, and I have thoroughly enjoyed them. So much fun! I’m definitely looking forward to reading Becoming Bea! Thanks for the giveaway and for participating in the Scavenger Hunt!

    I love Amish fiction. It is one of my favorite genres of fiction, but as for Shakespeare, not a fan. I never could understand what was going on. I have to have “Shakespeare for Dummies” by my side to figure it out!

    About the only way I can understand Shakespeare is to see the story done in a movie or a more modern play. I like Shakespeare done in these ways, but to actually read the original – I’m lost.

    I loved the new version of Much Ado About Nothing! I love the b&w, the humor, and the behind-the-scenes stories 🙂
