Hello! I am Corinne O’Flynn

(yes, my name rhymes!)

and I’m your hostess on this stop of the hunt.

NOTE: The official start time for the hunt is 12pm PACIFIC (1PM MOUNTAIN) on 3/29 so some blogs may not go online until that time.


About Me

I love tea!
My favorite color is GREEN.
I prefer cupcakes *without* frosting. #nakedcake
If napping were an Olympic sport, I’d totally take the gold! #deliciousleeeeep
I have three pets: Maisy the Cattle Dog, Clancey the Labradoodle, and Frodo the Bearded Dragon


I’ve got a YASH-exclusive, *top secret* bookish item being revealed during the hunt on another TEAM SILVER blog! And… it’s GREEN!

And now, without further ado, it’s my pleasure to introduce the SILVER TEAM author I am hosting on the hunt!



Hilary Thompson is an independently-published author who released her debut Young Adult novel, Justice Buried (Starbright, Book One), in January, 2014. Hilary also teaches high school English, which gives her some insight into her target audience, and helps her maintain a thick skin.

The book Hilary is showcasing in the YA Scavenger Hunt this season is her upcoming release:

Destiny Risen (Starbright Book 3)


The world cries for Peace, but she can’t stop fighting now. One hundred years before, the Great Sickness reduced the world to three scattered cities. Now Asphodel has risen, Tartarus no longer burns, but Elysium still waits at the edge of the earth. Trea’s destiny is still uncertain – but with her own personal prophet to help, the choice will finally be hers to make. Three Sisters. Four fallen stars. Seven minutes to determine the future of our world.

Wow… I can think of *1089* reasons to pick up this series!!
