I’m so excited to be hosting Suzanne van Rooyen author of SCARDUST for this TEAM BLUE stop of the New Adult Scavenger Hunt! You’re going to love her exclusive material. It’s totally cool and fun.

Add up the clues, and you can enter for our prize–one lucky winner will receive one book from each author on the hunt in my team! But play fast: this contest (and all the exclusive bonus material) will only be online for 72 hours!

Go to the New Adult Scavenger Hunt page to find out details about the hunt. There are THREE contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all! I am a part of the TEAM BLUE–but there is also a red team and a purple team for a chance to win a whole different set of books!

LET THE HUNT BEGIN!


SCARDUST

by Suzanne van Rooyen


Published: February 8, 2016
Publisher: Entangled
Genre: NA science fiction


Blurb:


Dead Rock, Texas, 2037

Raleigh Williams made a promise to his brother before he died, that he’d scatter his ashes on Mars. Desperate to leave a life of bad memories behind and start over in the Martian colony, Raleigh fully intends to keep that promise. But his plans are thwarted when a meteor near-misses him in the desert, and Raleigh finds in its crater not debris or even a spacecraft, but a man covered in swirling scars and with no memory of who he is. At least he looks like a man—a man Raleigh can’t seem to keep his eyes off of—but whenever they touch it ignites a memory swap between them.

Raleigh agrees to help Meteor Man piece together his life through their cosmic connection. But the memory share goes both ways, and Raleigh becomes inexplicably entangled with a guy who is everything he needs—everything good that Raleigh is not—but might not even be human. As their minds and worlds collide, reality unravels and Raleigh must face a painful truth, one that could shatter his dreams of finding love, reaching Mars, and fulfilling his brother’s last wish.

* NA SCAVANGER HUNT EXCLUSIVE LOOK!! *


What's in Raleigh's backpack?

Raleigh has a big dream: to go to Mars. His dream is also a promise. Before his brother died, he made Raleigh promise he'd become an astronaut and spread his ashes on Mars. Raleigh intends to keep his promise, in fact he hasn't been thinking about anything except Mars for years. Until Crow showed up – now Raleigh's finding himself getting a little distracted by the good-looking guy. Here's what their most recent Facebook chat looked like:




While Crow might be a delightful distraction, there's no way Raleigh isn't already planning his trip to Mars. Here's what Raleigh will take with him if he ever manages to become an astronaut.

The backpack:








Standard issue, astronaut backpack.




His dog-eared copy of Dune by Frank Herbert:








This a book Raleigh has read countless times and could never go long without. His life's motto is 'What Would Muad'Dib do?'



His smartphone, for music:








There's no way Raleigh could leave earth without having a way of listening to his brother's sick guitaring and angry vocals.



Photos of his family and Bear:






Raleigh might not want to admit it, but he's the sentimental type and wouldn't survive being away from his family or four-legged best friend without being able to look at them.



Condoms, just in case:




All Crow's fault for mentioning sex in zero-g, but there's no harm in being prepared.
