  1. I'm trying to comment on your first scavenger hunt post, but it won't let me. Strange, because I was able to comment on her newest post to say that I just finished reading Forgotten. Anyway, I was going to tell you that I could never get any work done in your favorite place. Too many wonderful distractions!

    • I have to approve commenters. Sometimes I'm away writing!

  2. Where can I find the rafflecopter?

    Reply
    • It's that gray box right above this comment area–where it says log in with Facebook on blue banner, or with your email.

  3. This is one of my all-time favorite series. I wish that everyone I know would read them, so they can enjoy them like I do! :) Can't wait to read Bourne; it will be epic. :)

    • Thanks, Aimee!

  4. I absolutely totally LOVE this series. I found it on Amazon while randomly browsing, asked for it for Christmas, got it, and am now TOTALLY addicted!

    Please write more!!! Can't wait to do the hunt, but I'm sad because my parents won't let me have a facebook :-(

    Reply
    • You can still enter, Michelle. Most of the points are earned by visiting the blogs and completing the form. Good luck!

      Reply
  5. how can there be entries already? the tour is not over O: it's just starting! (YAY is implied) :D

    Reply
    • Probably from Twitter and Facebook points…but I'll verify all winners.

      Reply
  6. Thanks. Would love to win a Kindle! :)

    Reply

      Reply
      • Thank you so much for your wishes! :D

  7. Really cool giveaway I have been wanting to read this series and I think it will be totally fun. I copied and pasted the info. I agreed to giving you the info when you want it. I know the tour has just started I hope that is ok?

    Reply
    • That's fine! Just see it through. P.S. My baby niece is named Wrenna!

  8. Does the whole "tell your friends on facebook count if you do it in person :p ?

    Reply
    • I wish it could, Michelle. But since I'm verifying winners, it really needs to be the actual book of Face. Which doesn't diminish my appreciation for you sharing the love iN PERSON. Thank you!

      Reply
      • i just loaned my friend Waterfall. Fingers crossed that she loves it as much as i do :)

        Reply
        • My friend just called to tell me that she couldn't put the book down and that she'd never read a book this fast before :p

          Reply
  9. has today's question been released yet? I can't seem to find it…

    Reply
    • Nope. My blogger for today has gone AWOL. :-) If she doesn't show up, I'll post the interview on my own blog (here) tonight!

      Reply
      • Glad to see it got posted :)

        BTW, what is the best way to send the scavenger hunt to you on the 18th?

        Reply
  10. I was going to do this but, the instructions are not clear, its just too complicated

    Reply
    • Teressa, the simplest way to do this? (1) Wait until 2/18. (2) Copy and paste the scavenger hunt/blog stop list and questions above into a Word or Text document. (3) Visit each of the stops. (4) Fill out the form. (5) Send it to me.

      Boom. Entered. It doesn't have to be hard!

      Reply
  11. I think people may be confused because the mandatory entry on the rafflecopter is to have completed the scavenger hunt…so one can not access the daily tweeting, facebook, etc. entries until one marks the hunt completed and ready to email to you. Hence the confusion about how there can already be any entries at all as no one should have completed the mandatory step yet to even access the others (which could be completed in advance.)

    Reply
    • I think you're right, M. Thanks for figuring it out! Those who've already marked it as "done" are just confused or doing what you suggested. I'll take that off "mandatory" for now–even tho it is–and I'll verify all winners in the end!

      Reply
  12. I accidently pushed the I'm done filling out the form button. How do you undo it? Also I'm really enjoying doing this bloc tour. I look forward to it all day :)

    Reply
    • No worries. I'll verify all winners at the end. Just make sure you follow thru!

      Reply
  13. Hi Lisa, I was wondering for the Blog Post Comment section and the Scavenger Hunt option, do we click yes once we have completed them or can now? I'm not sure if I should wait until the end of the tour or not…

    Reply
    • At the end, please. But regardless of when people mark it "done," I'll be verifying all winners. There was some confusion bec the way I'd set up the Rafflecopter, people couldn't Facebook/Tweet until they marked it "done." Should be on track now!

      Reply
      • Got it! See you tomorrow on the tour.

        Reply
  14. I do hope I’m keeping up

    Reply
    • lol. at least the blog posts won't go away so if you do get behind, you can always come back and get what you missed :D

      Reply
      • That's what I'm doing today :) Thanks for the help!

        Reply
  15. Whoa, lots of work for this giveaway, but totally worth it, and it's kind or fun :) Thanks for the awesome opportunity!

      Reply

    Reply

      • Great! :D

        Reply
  22. how do you choose who wins? Is it the people with the most points or just a random selection of those who enter?

    Reply
    • Rafflecopter chooses random winners, but I will be verifying to make sure the winners did what they said they did! The more points you gather, the better the odds you'll win, of course.

  27. What are all the ones that we need to skip??

    Reply
    • Bookish Delights and Mrs. Boswell's seem like they've disappeared from the web. So you can skip theirs.

  30. That was fun but sometimes I forgot and had to back track a day or two. Too bad you had so many no shows. Shouldn't there be a three strikes you are out sort of thing in this game. Oh well, thanks again.

    Reply
  31. Sorry, I sent you an email already with my answers etc. The information above was a little confusing, so I just sent it to your email listed previous. Sorry for my confusion. Loved the blog tour and the books. About to reread them again for the 3rd time.

    Had my local library order WATERFALL and TORRENT since all they carry is CASCADE. There's another sale!!!
