Gretchen McNeil’s TEN Cover Reveal Scavenger Hunt

Filed under: Apocalypsies, Contests, Cover Art

My fellow Apocalypsie, lovely friend and debut author of POSSESS–Gretchen McNeil–has her second book in the pipeline and asked me to be a part of the TEN Cover Reveal and Scavenger Hunt!  Of course I said YES!!!!

Have you met Gretchen?

Gretchen McNeil is an opera singer, writer and clown. Her YA horror/paranormal POSSESS debuted with Balzer + Bray for HarperCollins in 2011. Her second novel, TEN – YA horror/suspense about ten teens trapped on a remote island with a serial killer – will be released September 18, 2012. Gretchen is a former coloratura soprano, the voice of Mary on G4’s “Code Monkeys” and she currently sings with the LA-based circus troupe Cirque Berzerk. Gretchen is also a founding member of the vlog group YARebelswhere she can be seen as “Monday.”

Now that you know Gretchen, let’s get busy because we have a lot to cover. First things first–let me tell you a little bit about TEN.

TEN by Gretchen McNeil

And their doom comes swiftly.

It was supposed to be the weekend of their lives – three days on Henry Island at an exclusive house party. Best friends Meg and Minnie each have their own reasons for wanting to be there, both of which involve Kamiak High’s most eligible bachelor, T.J. Fletcher. But what starts out as a fun-filled weekend turns dark and twisted after the discovery of a DVD with a sinister message: Vengeance is mine.

Suddenly, people are dying and the teens are cut off from the outside world. No electricity, no phones, no internet, and a ferry that isn’t scheduled to return for two days. As the deaths become more violent and the teens turn on each other, can Meg find the killer before more people die? Or is the killer closer to her than she could ever imagine?

Jeepers Crepers!


Q: What is the prize???

A: You are entering to win a signed and annotated copy of the unbound galley of TEN.  A one of a kind prize, out before the ARCs.  How awesome is that?

Q: How do I enter the contest???

A: You must start the hunt from the beginning and you can do this on Gretchen’s blog – – From there, you’ll need to collect all ten clues for a chance to enter the contest on the day of the cover reveal (which is Friday, February 24.)

Q: What is my clue and where do I go next on the scavenger hunt???

A: Your clue is LORI and your next stop on the hunt is… Kimberly Derting – (and she’ll be posting on Thursday, February 23)

There you go! You have everything you need to take you to the next leg of the race.  Good luck!  If you have the time leave a comment, I’d love to hear about the scariest book you’ve ever read. I’m going to say Silence of the Lambs. *shiver* But I’m thinking that Gretchen is planning on giving me nightmares too!
