Welcome to the Autumn 2014 Scavenger Hunt
You have arrived at Stop #19. 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 (www.robinleehatcher.com) 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 all of the 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.
On With the Hunt. . .
It is my extreme pleasure to host my dear friend, Lynette Eason, on this 2014 Autumn Scavenger Hunt. Lynette and I have forged a great friendship, one in which we realize we had many things in common. . .including our kitchen windows.
Without further ado, here’s Lynette….
is the author of the bestselling, award winning Deadly Reunions Series. She lives in South Carolina with her husband and two children.
Working with Deaf Children
Simon Harding is Dani Harding’s 11 year old son in Nowhere To Turn. He’s clever, he’s stubborn –and he’s deaf. Simon became deaf when he tried to intervene in his father’s beating of his mother.
Nowhere To Turn is a story that holds a special place in my heart. It’s true – I love children. But even more, I love deaf children. Deafness runs in my family so I suppose when I was choosing a career (before I started writing) deaf education was a given. I got a Masters in Deaf Education and taught at the Deaf school in Spartanburg, SC before I quit to write full time. I met a lot of great kids during those years and came to love and admire most of them.
So when I decided to give Dani a son, I decided to make him deaf as a tribute to all of the amazing deaf kids I’ve had the privilege of knowing and working with over the past 15 years. I hope you get a chance to read Nowhere To Turn and meet Simon. I think you’ll love him, too.
About Nowhere to Turn
The day Danielle Harding takes her 11-year-old son, Simon, and flees from her abusive husband, is the same day Kurt Harding dies. A relieved Dani believes she and her son are finally safe–but in reality, the danger has just begun. When Kurt was alive, he took something important to a mysterious person. That person wants the item back and believes Dani now has it. As she and her son run for their lives, they have nowhere to turn, until she hires Adam Buchanan of Operation Refuge and goes into hiding. Unfortunately, she won’t be able to hide for long . . .
