SCAVENGER HUNT POST
Today, I am hosting BECKY WALLACE on my website for the YA Scavenger Hunt!
In second grade, Becky Wallace had to sit in the corner because she refused to write anything except princess stories and fairy tales (and because she talked too much). Her time in isolation gave her plenty of opportunities to dream up the fantasy worlds she’s been dabbling with ever since. She was lucky enough to find her own real-life Prince Charming. They have four munchkins and live in happy little town near Houston, Texas.

War is coming.
The magical wall that protects Santarem is falling.
Johanna and Rafi must defeat treacherous dukes and dodge magic-wielding assassins to save their people from slavery and destructions…
Even if it means sacrificing their happiness for the sake of their world.
Becky is sharing with us the original first page of her newly released novel — The Skylighter
Blood tinged the water pink.
It spread and faded, mingling with the tea-colored murk that filled the bottom of the boat. Johanna turned her knees from its source, the corpse of an adolescent caiman, only to brush against the white underbelly of another. Glistening ribbons of blood wrapped the still-twitching package. The reptile’s claws opened and closed convulsively, scraping against the hull.
She sat among a pile of caiman corpses, some as long as her leg, others small enough to fit in her palm, in a canoe made from the macabre remnants of their larger relatives. Black-scaled hides, stitched together with thread made from the animals’ intestines, created a tough, water-impermeable barrier, perfect for trolling through the marsh.
The sky had just begun to lighten when the strange craft lurched through the mangrove swamp. At first she and Rafi had feared the worst—that Vibora or her minions had been able to follow their trail into the marsh—but the small boat and its crew agreed to help them to safety.
They were hard men, looking more the part of midnight marauders than simple hunters, sporting fang-like tattoos around their necks and long, greasy braids that reached halfway down their backs. In any other place, Johanna would have refused the assistance, running in the opposite direction and clutching her valuables, but she and Rafi were being hunted by something even scarier.
With no weapons, little food and water, and short the boot that had been snatched off Rafi’s foot by a hungry caiman, they had no other options.
As an added bonus, I’m also giving away a Swag Prize Pack of MAGNETIC SHIFT goodies, including a Colton Tayler Race Team Lanyard. Giveaway is open internationally. Contest closes April 3rd Midnight EST. Follow instructions for each entry below. Entries will be verified.
