Halloween Blog Tour - Scavenger Hunt

As part of THE FAMILIARS Halloween Blog Tour, we are also having a special Familiars-themed Halloween Scavenger Hunt! At each stop along the blog tour, we will be asking a trivia question from our book. After you fill in your answer, the letter that falls in the place of the * can be placed in the corresponding number of the larger puzzle. So for the question numbered 1, the letter that lands in the space where the * is can be filled in where the 1 is in the larger puzzle below. The larger puzzle will form yet another clue, and anyone who answers it correctly will be entered into a drawing for an autographed book as well as a few other Halloween treats!

You can email your answers to All entries must be entered by November 15.

And be sure to come back to see where we've been on the tour! These are not in order of stops; they were each assigned numbers randomly.
