Welcome to the Hunt!


Hi Everyone! Welcome to my stop on the YA Scavenger Hunt Spring 2017. You are currently on the trail of the Blue Team.

My name is Julia Ember and I am the author of Unicorn Tracks and upcoming Seafarer's Kiss (May 2017) and Tiger's Watch (August 2017)

I'm really excited to host Amy Plum, bestselling author of Die for Me, as she talks about her new book, Dream Fall! I've also got an exclusive giveaway for you to enter at the end of this post! 


First, a little bit about Amy …

After being raised in Birmingham, Alabama, in a rather restrictive environment, AMY PLUM escaped to Chicago to an even more restrictive environment at a university that expelled people for dancing. (And where she was called to the dean’s office for “wearing too much black”.) After all of that restrictiveness, she was forced to run far far away, specifically to Paris, France, where she only wore black and danced all she wanted.

After five years in Paris, she ventured to London, where she got an M.A. in Medieval Art History, specializing in Early Sienese Painting (1260-1348) mainly because it promised almost no hope of finding a paying job afterward.

Amy managed to find work in the world of art and antiques in New York. But after almost a decade of high-pressure lifestyle in the Big Apple, she swapped her American city for a French village of 1300 inhabitants.

After signing with HarperCollins for the DIE FOR ME series, Amy left her job as an English professor at Tours University to write full-time. She now lives in Paris with her two kids and her black lab, Oberon.

And now to give you 61 reasons to read her new book …

Cata Cordova suffers from such debilitating insomnia that she agreed to take part in an experimental new procedure. She thought things couldn’t get any worse…but she was terribly wrong.

Soon after the experiment begins, there’s a malfunction with the lab equipment, and Cata and six other teen patients are plunged into a shared dreamworld with no memory of how they got there. Even worse, they come to the chilling realization that they are trapped in a place where their worst nightmares have come to life. Hunted by creatures from their darkest imaginations and tormented by secrets they’d rather keep buried, Cata and the others will be forced to band together to face their biggest fears. And if they can’t find a way to defeat their dreams, they will never wake up.

School Library Journal's verdict: "A definite purchase for libraries serving younger sci-fi and horror fans, who will be eagerly waiting for the sequel.”

  1. I think Amy Plum’s video is awesome! I really love that she did in the basement of a 200-year-old convent because that really adds to the effect. 🙂 I’ve always thought it’d be really cool to do an abandoned building tour because there is so much history in those places. Very cool!
