Colleen Houck’s New York Times bestselling Tiger’s Curse series has received national praise with the fourth book, Tiger’s Destiny, debuting September 2012. Colleen is a lifelong reader whose literary interests include action, adventure, science fiction, and romance. Formerly a student at the University of Arizona, she has worked as a nationally certified American Sign Language interpreter for seventeen years. Colleen lives in Salem, Oregon, with her husband and a huge assortment of plush tigers.
Passion. Fate. Loyalty.
Would you risk it all to change your destiny?
The last thing Kelsey Hayes thought she’d be doing this summer was trying to break a 300-year-old Indian curse. With a mysterious white tiger named Ren. Halfway around the world. But that’s exactly what happened. Face-to-face with dark forces, spellbinding magic, and mystical worlds where nothing is what it seems, Kelsey risks everything to piece together an ancient prophecy that could break the curse forever. Tiger’s Curse is the exciting first volume in an epic fantasy-romance that will leave you breathless and yearning for more.

Hello Tiger Fans!
For this scavenger hunt I am excited to give you not one but two deleted chapters from Tiger’s Voyage which is book three in the tiger series. Both of these chapters are from Lokesh’s perspective and they were cut because we felt it disrupted the flow a bit. Jumping into Lokesh’s head is a little startling when all of my readers are used to the goings on in Kelsey’s mind but getting into the brain of my evil villain was actually very interesting for me. Most of the chapter entitled “Pirates” (originally chapter 18) was reworked into the book but the chapter called “Hunches” (originally chapter twelve) was taken out completely. Enjoy! Don’t forget to fill out the rafflecopter form on my website for a chance to win some fabulous prizes! Happy hunting!
Exclusive material deleted at end of YASH.
To win the YASH contest, you need to know that my favorite number is 88. Add up all the favorite numbers of the authors on the GOLD team and you’ll have all the secret code to enter for the grand prize!
Separate from the YASH contest, you can enter this bonus contest to win an ARC of ENDERS! My publisher only printed a small number of these advanced reader’s copies mainly for newspaper reviewers and booksellers, but I managed to snag one for this special giveaway. If you win, it will be inscribed to you. The winner may have to make promises in blood, but to read this months before it comes out is worth it, right? I’m going to add the new paperback of STARTERS in case you don’t have it. Plus, the paperback has an exclusive short story available nowhere else: “Portrait of a Spore,” which gives insight into the Spore Wars.
Second place winner will get a book that I pick (after consulting with you) from either the paperback of Starters or if you have that, one of the various foreign editions of Starters. Third-Fifth place winners will get a chapter sampler and the new bookmarks, signed. US only for all the above however I decided to do something for the international readers, so if you win I’ll arrange a prize.
You get one bonus entry for each of the following you choose to do: following on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and this website. Also for leaving a comment below. Don’t worry, you will not be added to any list but I will pick at least one extra win from there and award something fun, so comment because your odds are really good. Lastly, if you sign up on my brand new mailing list (if you already signed up from Rita’s site, it will count): http://eepurl.com/F-1Un
To win the ARC of ENDERS:
Thanks for following me and playing. Best of luck! Thanks to the fabulous duo of Colleen Houck and Beth Revis for all the work they’ve done organizing this awesome contest. The next stop on the hunt is the exciting debut author, and my blog sister, Mindy McGinnis!
