YA Scavenger Hunt Spring 2016

Hello, everybody! Welcome to the YA Scavenger Hunt Spring 2016!

I am Deidre Mapstone, your hostess on this leg of the hunt, representing 

I love to bake, sew and write when I have the time! Old fashioned loves for a new age society!
Sigrun is my first novel, and I hope you enjoy it as well as all of the others here on TEAM SILVER!

With all of the technical jargon out of the way, let's meet one of TEAM SILVER's authors!

I am pleased to present Michael Alan Peck!

Winner of the 2015 state libraries' Soon to be Famous Illinois Author Project.

I tell tales big and small. Life's magical, but it isn't always enough for a good story. So I make up the rest.

Ooh, I can't wait to find out more about the Illinois Author Project!

Michael is sharing THE COMMONS, BOOK 1: THE JOURNEYMAN with us.

Let's take a look!

“Paul Reid died in the snow at seventeen. The day of his death, he told a lie—and for the rest of his life, he wondered if that was what killed him.”

And so begins the battle for the afterlife, known as The Commons. It’s been taken over by a corporate raider who uses the energy of its souls to maintain his brutal control. The result is an imaginary landscape of a broken America—stuck in time and overrun by the heroes, monsters, dreams, and nightmares of the imprisoned dead.

Three people board a bus to nowhere: a New York street kid, an Iraq War veteran, and her five-year-old special-needs son. After a horrific accident, they are the last, best hope for The Commons to free itself. Along for the ride are a shotgun-toting goth girl, a six-foot-six mummy, a mute Shaolin monk with anger-management issues, and the only guide left to lead them.

Three Journeys: separate but joined. One mission: to save forever.

But first they have to save themselves.

Oh my! It's like every one of my favorite genres rolled into one! I don't know about you, but I've already got this on my TBR!

You can find out more about the Commons over at Michael Peck's website!
