For a refresher on rules and prizes click here.

Time for item #3–or rather, question #3:

Besides reading and writing, what is the author’s new favorite activity?

Knight Peice

Need a hint?

Need a hint? It was inspired by her love of fantasy movies such as the LOTR and Hobbit trilogies.

Remember, the information containing the answer will be marked with a black knight piece just like the image to the right.

Please keep in mind I’m only hiding one clue per week, which gives you approximately seven days to find it and answer the question. But even after the piece is removed, you could still find the answer on your own. It just won’t be as easy without the hint.

Wondering what the chess piece is all about? You’ll have to read the book to find out.

Time for item #2–or rather, question #2:

If I could cast anyone to play my favorite character, Sir Kay, who would it be?

Knight Peice

Need a hint?

Need a hint? The actor wouldn’t take the role because Sir Kay doesn’t die.

Remember, the information containing the answer will be marked with a black knight piece just like the image to the right.

Please keep in mind I’m only hiding one clue per week, which gives you approximately seven days to find it and answer the question. But even after the piece is removed, you could still find the answer on your own. It just won’t be as easy without the hint.

The Search for the Ultimate Cache Scavenger Hunt: Item #1

Standard

Hello everyone, and welcome to the 75th Annual Hunger Games–wait, what? I mean, welcome to the opening of the Ultimate Cache Scavenger Hunt! Whoo hoo! So, grab your coconuts. Round up your gang. It’s time to start the search for the Ultimate Cache!

For a refresher on rules and prizes click here.

Now let’s kick-off the scavenger hunt with item #1, or should I say, question #1?

Which character from The Quest for the Holy Something or Other is the author’s favorite character?

Knight Peice

Look for the hidden item to find the answer you seek!

Need a hint? Think back to a blog post when the author might have discussed some of her favorite things. **cough, cough**

Remember, the information containing the answer will be marked with a black knight piece just like the image to the right. I’ll only hide one per week to make things easier. After one week, I’ll remove the hidden item and plant it into a new blog post to avoid any confusion, so that gives you 7 days to figure it out.

So, what is the significance of the knight piece, anyway? Does it have anything to do with the story? Or is it totally random? What could it possible represent? You’ll have to read the book to find out.

The_Quest_eBook_cover

Available January 30th

Only four more weeks until the release of my debut novel, The Quest for the Holy Something or Other, and since the majority of the story centers around the search for the “Ultimate Cache,” I thought it might be fun to host a sort of scavenger hunt right here on my blog!

On Friday, January 9th I’m going to officially open the scavenger hunt to anyone who wants to participate. All “hidden items” should be inserted by then;)

Knight Peice

“Hidden item”

Between January 9th and January 30th (the day of the release), participants can search my past blog posts to find the “hidden items” that will help them answer 4 questions pertaining to the author and the book.

One question will be posted every Friday leading up to, as well as on the release date: So be looking for a new question on January 9, 16, 23, 30. (Hint: posts usually come out between 9 and 10am). Don’t worry. If you miss one, there will be links to get you back on track:)

On January 30th, participants should submit their answers to all four questions to kyliebetzner@gmail.com. I will note the time the message was received. The first 5 people to submit their answers to all 4 questions wins a prize!

The_Quest_3d_mockup_backless

1rst place: A $10 Amazon gift card and a free copy of my ebook

Rules:

  • Don’t answer questions in the comments. That will ruin the game.
  • Don’t email me individual answers each week. I wont consider them if you do. Sorry.
  • Don’t be a sore loser. This is just for fun. I’m sure I’ll host another contest again soon.
  • Don’t give up!
