The Summer Fun Scavenger Hunt is now closed. Come back later to see who the winners are!


General Graphic SFSH

It has been brought to my attention that there is a site maintenance issue over at K.J. Coakley’s site. For those who are still finishing their hunts, don’t worry about it, just skip over K.J. Coakley’s clue and move on to Anna Lowe‘s site. No one will be penalized for this.


Hi all! We’re thrilled to have you all here. I hope you’re ready to have fun, maybe get to know a few new authors, and win some prizes! Down below are some easy to follow instructions. Please read them carefully so that you know exactly what you need to do in order to be entered in the draws. We will not share your e-mail with anyone, but if you’d like to be notified of our next big promo event or receive some awesome deals in your inbox, please sign up for our Newsletter just over to the right of the screen.

If you keep scrolling down, you’ll find all the boring legal mumbo jumbo. Please read through it before starting the scavenger hunt.

And now.. the all important instructions!

How to play:

  1. Contest starts on June 29th, 2015 and ends on July 5th, 2015 at midnight EST. No entries will be accepted for any reason after that time.
  2. Just below these instructions, you will find a Google Form. This is how you will be submitting your answers. By clicking on the link, you will go to an easy to use form where you can type in or copy and paste your responses. Please keep in mind that each answer must entered in the correct order to qualify. If you follow the clues in the order they are given, you won’t have any problems. Make sure to double check your contact information so we can notify you if you’re one of the lucky winners.
  3. Once you’ve found the Google Form, keep scrolling, you will find your first clue. Follow the link to find out where you need to go next.
  4. Each author’s website will have a distinct graphic posted in a prominent place where you will find a question that needs to be answered. The correct answer to this question is what you will be putting into the Google form. Please be as clear as possible. We will not disqualify entries for typos, but the answers must be correct.
  5. Once you have found your answer (and noted it in your Google Form), you can move on to the next author website. You may notice that some of the authors are holding their own contests. Feel free to enter those as well by following their specific instructions. Those contests are at the author’s discretion and are in no way the responsibility of PNRLovers.com.
  6. Once you have all your answers logged and submit your form, you are officially entered in the contest.
  7. Think you made an error in your answers and want to fix them? That’s okay, you can go back and change things up. Just make sure you are done with the form before the contest close.
  8. If you are unsure about going back to edit a Google Form, no problem, just make note of all your answers in the correct order, then come back to fill your form all at once and submit it then and there.
  9. Remember, not all graphics will be right on the front page, dig a little into the site to find it.

    1. The graphic is there and the link is working, but it’s on the home page. I’ve since had the link fixed so that it goes directly to the home page. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. 🙂

  1. Still not working right….I did the puzzle but didn’t know where to go next..no link to get to Elianna Adams.

  2. that took quite a while but the rewards are good. i did have trouble with some of the links. i had to go back in and fill it all out again, but i got a completed form done and submitted. thanks for the opportunity

  3. I have tries to get to the first clue and cannot get beyond the puzzle that says start here, it does not connect to anything just stays on the puzzle.

  4. I’m sorry, I don’t know if I’m completely missing it but I can’t find anything on Shelley Munro’s site except promo links back to this site for the scavenger hunt. I’m confused lol.

  5. So all the answers are on the author’s websites? Just asking as I am on number 10 and I am having trouble finding the answer. I have been clicking and reading samples on amazon.

    1. Yes, all the answers are there. If you look under Lori Whyte’s “Paranormal” heading, you should be able to find what you’re looking for.

  6. Anna Lowe’s website link is still not working. From the above comments, I see that Elianne has mentioned a link to try but my view screen shows no visible link?

  7. I just tried Anna Lowes link and it did not work for me. I also tried the links in the comments for her here and still nada! Can I get the clue from you or skip it??

  8. I’ve run into a problem. I can’t connect to Anne Lowe’s website. I’ve tried every link in the comments and even typed them in and still get the same result. Below is what I get:
    Skip to main content

    The website encountered an unexpected error. Please try again later.
    Error messagePDOException: SQLSTATE[HY000] [2002] Can’t connect to local MySQL server through socket ‘/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock’ (2) in lock_may_be_available() (line 167 of /home/msr/public_html/annalowebooks.com/includes/lock.inc).

    Please help. I can’t continue until I get this clue and next site.

  9. Update yo problems on Anna Lowe site. I stayed persistent and have had success in getting to her page. Now to continue with the hunt! Thank you all for the great opportunity and introduction to new interesting authors.

  10. Thanks for your emailm Em! For anyone having trouble with Anna Lowe’s website, I tried clicking on the link under her Desert Moon jpg in the above side bar on this website. I connected with no problem.

  11. I had problems at first and some you couldn’t click on, you had to actually type the authors link in but other than that the problems that was there when this was first posted are fixed. Thank you all for this awesome giveaway. I haven’t won anything in almost 3 years and I would LOVE to win, even if its the third prize. I’ve found many new authors and all their books look and sound great. Also, I’d like to mention that I’m a HUGE audiobook fan, addict, and lover. If there’s any authors that are willing to send me free gifted audios or coded for their audiobooks, in exchange I will listen and post honest and unbiased reviews in return. I do this for many authors and narrators on many different genres. Here’s my link on Audible for any author who is interested in letting me have a chance to get their audios in exchange for some reviews. http://www.audible.com/listener/A1MLIZNQ9VL1FF?asin=B00843TUU This is the email below my name that I used to enter the giveaway and for Audible. I can’t post comments using that email address

  12. I’m having troubles at the 6th stop >.< It's been hours since I completed the other answers but K.J. Coakley is still on maintenance…what should I do if it doesn't happen to come back online before the end of the event? 🙁

  13. There was no link to K.J. Coackley’s website. Her website doesn’t have the image and comes up with a blank site “K.J.\’s website is getting a makeover. Check back soon! “

  14. ACKK! at K.J. Coakley’s website I keep getting an error message, Renee George link is down too (sigh) Can I get some help, please?


  15. Hi, I finished the hunt and sent in the Google form yesterday. I just wanted to mention that K.J. Coakley’s website says this: K.J.\’s website is getting a makeover. Check back soon! So I was unable to provide that answer. Thank you! Judy Schechter, jsnacc@yahoo.com

    1. Thanks, Judy. No one will be penalized for not having KJ Coakley’s answer. Thanks again for the e-mail.

  16. How long after the contest ends before you let the winners know? Can you please post the answers so that I can check to see if I got any of the questions wrong? Thank you so much, it was very fun.

    1. We should be announcing winners later this week or early next week. The only reason I’m not more definite on the date is because there are a lot of entries to check, and we want to be very meticulous to make sure every person who qualifies gets the chance at the prizes. I’ll also have all the answers posted at that time so anyone can go ahead and check to see if they got anything wrong. 🙂
