Giveaway: UtopYA Con Book Match Scavenger Hunt Game

Happy Friday, everyone! Today, I am happy to bring you my section of the utopYA Con official bloggers’ scavenger hunt for our panelists’ books. Before I get to the rules, let me tell you about the utopYA2015’s earlybird ticket prices! They’re ending February 28th, and that’s next week! Standard admission is currently $90, and VIP is $115. On the 28th, those prices go up to $110 for standard admission and $135 for VIP. Thinking about getting your tickets? Pick them up here.

Now, let’s get to the book hunt! Here’s what you have to do to win:

  1. Read the synopsis below.
  2. Guess which book from my short list the synopsis belongs to.
  3. Type your answer in the Rafflecopter entry form.
  4. Enter every day throughout the month of February for a shot at the prize!

Each blogger will list one synopsis and five possible titles for you to choose from. It’ll be a different title each week (this is week three).

This form will stay up on my blog for one week. Then, I’ll change the entry form to a link for the new hunt over on Book Junkie: Not-So-Anonymous. And so on, and so forth. At the end of the game, all incorrect entries will be removed before the winner is chosen.

What’s the prize? Well…

You have a shot at winning a pack of three e-books–one from EACH of our keynote speakers:
Denise Grover Swank, Kim Holden, and Lauren Miller

These prizes are being donated by the official bloggers. We wanted to do something awesome for you guys. What’s better than books written by awesome women you’re going to meet?

So… are you ready? Here’s your synopsis:

Jesobel Vine wants nothing more than to be a typical Pyxian teenager. She wants to ride her horse, Firefly, shoot her bow, and fall in love with her dreamy best friend, Glyn. But Jesobel is marked not only as the future Royal Starkeeper of Pyxis, but as the Heart of Azimuth—the one to lead her people back to their lost realm—a burden too dangerous for daydreams. As Jesobel struggles to accept her destiny, reluctantly studying mystic magic, she becomes doubtful she will ever be worthy to rule. And when her fiery temper enrages the daemon-possessed Starkeeper of Equuleus with a hex-gone-wrong —igniting an orphic war—Jesobel must find a way to alter the global disaster foretold by a celestial legend.

Here are the possible books:

Going Down In Flames by Chris Cannon

Fatal Abduction by Julia Crane

Honey Queen by Christina Mercer

Prophecy: An Isle of Myst Novella by Stacie Wilson

Quickbane by Chelsea Starling

Time to enter your guess! Remember, you can enter once every day.

ENTER HERE USING RAFFLECOPTER!
