YASH Releases in May and June

Better late than never, right?
Here are some amazing releases by YASH authors happening in May and June 2020!


One cold, crisp night, Jack Sommers was faced with a choice—live forever according to the ancient, magical rules of Gaia, or die.

Jack chose to live, and in exchange, he became a Winter—an immortal physical embodiment of the season on Earth. Every year, he must hunt the Season who comes before him. Summer kills Spring. Autumn kills Summer. Winter kills Autumn. And Spring kills Winter.

Jack and Fleur, a Winter and a Spring, fall for each other against all odds. To be together, they’ll have to escape the cycle that’s been forcing them apart. But their creator won’t let them go without a fight.

Sirscha Ashwyn comes from nothing, but she’s intent on becoming something. After years of training to become the queen’s next royal spy, her plans are derailed when shamans attack and kill her best friend Saengo.

And then Sirscha, somehow, restores Saengo to life.

Unveiled as the first soulguide in living memory, Sirscha is summoned to the domain of the Spider King. For centuries, he has used his influence over the Dead Wood—an ancient forest possessed by souls—to enforce peace between the kingdoms. Now, with the trees growing wild and untamed, only a soulguide can restrain them. As war looms, Sirscha must master her newly awakened abilities before the trees shatter the brittle peace, or worse, claim Saengo, the friend she would die for.

Spring 2020 YASH Winners!

The Spring 2020 YA Scavenger Hunt Winners!

The YA Scavenger Hunt Organizers would like to congratulate this season's winners. This hunt was a little different than our norm. We decided to offer e-book and audiobook downloads as prizes instead of our traditional print books so that everyone, worldwide would feel the hunt was safe and accessible. 

You Guys Kept us Busy!

With over two thousand entries in the hunt, I can tell you there were a lot of anxious book hunters out there this season and it looks like Team Purple just slightly beat out the other teams on entries. Either there was more interest there, or the secret numbers were confusing. I know my pastry secret number on team purple confused some of you. I admit it was a bit more pinkish than purplish. I'll do better next time. ;)

Did You Win?

For those of you wanting to know if you won, I won't keep you waiting any longer. I'll list the grand prize winners first and then the individual author prize winners next. I'll keep adding the author prizes as they filter in over the next day or two so check back on the YASH website if you're waiting to find out about something specific. Don't forget to check the print out sheet to make sure you caught all the contests you entered. If you don't see an author announcement, check their website or tweet them if you can't find the info.

Grand Prize Winners

Grand prize winners receive one free e-book or audiobook download from each author on the winning team. The bonus prize winner receives a $50 Amazon e-gift card.
