The 2012 Zumaya Trivia Scavenger Hunt!

Welcome to the 2012 Zumaya Trivia Scavenger Hunt!

We had so much fun last year with a smaller version in conjunction with a chat we decided to expand it, gather some terrific prizes and give lots of people a chance to win them by running the event through the month of September.

         A number of our authors have donated those prizes, and they are all related somehow to their books. How they’re related, we aren’t going to tell, beyond maybe a hint or two. We don’t want to give away all our secrets.

         The way the contest works is that a group of Zumaya authors are hosting a collection of links on their blogs. There will be a question about themselves or their books, and a link to where you can find the answer. Visit all the blogs, collect the answers to all the questions, then go here, and complete the contest form.

         Now, a contest wouldn’t be any fun if it was too easy, so we’ve added some book and author-related trivia questions just to challenge you. Take your time—the Zumaya Trivia Scavenger Hunt will run through the entire month of September. You can see photos of some of the great prizes we’re giving away over at  Pinterest in the “What Do These Have In Common” album or at the Zumaya page at Facebook. Who knows— there might even be a few books and ebooks tossed into the mix before we’re done. We’ll definitely be giving away at least one ereader, but we’re waiting for all the new models to come out before we pick those.

         There will also be daily and weekly trivia contests, so keep an eye on Twitter and the Zumaya page on Facebook, or re-visit our company blog Zumaya Tales.  If you haven’t liked the Zumaya page on Facebook, now would be a good time. We’ll also have a chat at Coffee Time Romance and more on 4 September to launch, and a couple of hangouts on Google+ over the next four weeks.

         There is, of course, no purchase required, and your private information will remain between you and Zumaya. Unless we’re authorized to do otherwise, it will all be deleted when the contest ends. While we’d love it if you sampled our wares, our goal with this contest is to get to know as many people as we can, and to let them get to know us. So, welcome and have fun!

Here’s a peek at some of the prizes for the Zumaya Publications Scavenger Hunt:

 

If you’ve read my novels, you’ll know which one I threw into the pot. Hee hee!

Now to get you started…

At the bottom of this post is a list of Zumaya authors. On each of their websites you’ll find the answer to a question. Collect the answers to those questions, then go to the ZP Survey Monkey page and fill in the answers.

Zumaya Kindle Thriller Sale Week 4

Special Kindle Price Promotion at $2.99

Feb 26 to Mar 3 – Mixed Thrillers

The Ugly Princess by Elizabeth K Burton

The Ugly Princess by Elizabeth K Burton

This is the way his world ends

Christopher Evergild, like his father and his grandfathers before him, had trained all his life for one thing: to be the Royal Champion of Abernal and maintain the peace with the strength of his arm.

Then the king dies at his wedding feast, and his heir is a woman exiled to a mountain keep as an infant—a woman reputed to be so hideous only trolls can bear to look at her. Plots to replace her sprout before the king’s corpse is cold, but Chris’s duty is clear.

How is he to know doing the right thing will change his life forever?

Sample

Dark Legend by Chris Stires

Dark Legend by Chris Stires

“I am a ghost…”

“…What follows is my story–how I was murdered and the events after.”

For 150 years, in a house called Journey’s End, his ghost has walked the halls among the shadows of murder and horror. Now a courageous young woman has come, risking her life to free him. But a ruthless demon soldier will summon the terrors of Hell to stop them and continue the Dark Legend.

Sample

Murder Canyon by Joan Blancher

Murder Canyon by Joan Blacher

When the mutilated body of a beautiful and popular recent graduate of Clarion University is discovered in a desolate canyon, the nearby rural community of Chuma fears that the killer still lurks among them.

Ardis Jensen, a forensic psychologist turned campus counselor, horrified at the student’s brutal murder and troubled that another student might be the killer, becomes deeply embroiled in the investigation.

As searing, late summer winds swirl through the orchards, Ardis and Detective Larry Hopkins discover that grim secrets lie beneath Chuma’s seemingly tranquil surface, and that skeletons hide in many a Clarion closet.

P.S. All these listed titles are actually on sale! We just have certain ones features each week. 😛 It’s a secret! You can find the full list here.

For the next few years, he traveled alone, making few friends.Then, one night, a terrified young woman fleeing for her life stumbles into his camp, and his life once again takes new direction. As he reluctantly takes responsibility for getting her to safety, his past comes back to haunt him in a way that is painfully ironic.

Against both his will and his better judgment, he must return to the place he had thought lost to him forever if he is to make good on his promise to keep his charge safe from harm.

Second Coming? Or Antichrist?Father Sean McCauley has a dilemma–he loves his work as a Roman Catholic priest, but part of him yearns for a wife and family like his sister Kate’s. Torn between his calling and his heart’s desire, he willingly accepts an assignment to investigate a charismatic evangelist named Joseph, hoping to find an answer long the way.Who is the handsome, enigmatic man whose message is so powerful people flock to him by the thousands, leaving home and work to live in his self-sustaining communities all across the US? Why, despite Joseph’s altruism and faith, does Sean suspect he harbors something dark and evil?

Final Mercy by Frank J Edwards

Dr. Jack Forester, director of the New Canterbury University Hospital emergency department, is about to win an ongoing battle to modernize the ED when he’s stymied by the power-hungry dean, Bryson Witner. Then someone tries to murder Jack’s mentor and the former dean, setting it up to look like suicide.

Bit by bit, Jack uncovers facts that suggest several other recent tragic accidents may not have been in the least accidental. The deeper he digs, the closer danger creeps, and the phrase “life or death” begins to take on a new and very personal meaning.
