Hello everyone! We're going to start tossing around ideas here. So those of you that are interested in being a part of this awesome idea start chiming in on what you think can be done to make this awesome!
The way it happened originally was we sent in questions regarding content on our websites; details about ourselves or our books or even answers to jokes. Whoever scours the websites, finds all the answers and gets them right wins :3
We should provide content on our blogs and / or websites that people need to search out in order to complete the Scavenger hunt. Each author's list should be difficult but not impossible for those involved.
Hello all, Brien I'm right along with you on the thinking of how to do this part. Also Reece and Nik I agree! I wish more of our family would get on here and interact! I'm sending out an email now. Well... after I post this. I'm so sorry I've been on the blink the past few days, I'm getting some free day promotions and countdown deals ready, you'll get emails about all that soon.
What I'm thinking about the Scavenger Hunt is this, all authors that are going to participate will come up with one clue a day. See example:
December 1st - Brien O'Raighne will decide what today's clue is and where the answer will be found. We all put this out there on Facebook, Twitter and all the Social Media areas that we all have and then wait for the answers to come in. Basically it could be a question about Brien himself such as 'what is Brien's favorite food?' The answer of course would be located on his blog, Facebook Page, Twitter Page or anywhere he chose. He could give clues as to how or where to find the answer and then we post this everywhere we can and let the people follow the clues.
I intend to make a special email address for this, and I also intend to send out invitations to the hunt through Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, on the Blogs and all over using Hootsuite.
My clue idea came from my husband who received a picture from a friend - he's holding my book and smiling. My idea is to ask a question about the picture example: Did the guy in the picture have sunglasses on? Or an earring? Etc . . . Then I would post his picture on my FB. Or we could just post a picture of the cover of our books and ask a question about it. This way maybe people will remember the book. :-)
As long as the information is somewhere on the websites then it shouldn't make a difference the difficulty level. It could be about the books, or something about the cover, or even a reference to something you made in a blog post last year. (People never saw that one coming, heh-heh...) As long as it's accessible information then it'll work :3
