"Guess Who?" YA/ Tween Author Challenge Contest & Giveaway

How the Contest will work?

I have asked each author to answer one or both of these questions.
1.Can you please share one memorable moment that has happened to you since becoming an author?
2.Can you please share 3 things about yourself that your fans probably don’t know?

Every Monday starting September 5th I will post an answer. You will have 6 days to guess who the answer belongs to. I will stop accepting guesses on Saturday midnight CST and reveal the identity of the author. This will happen every week. I will provide one hint and a list of participating authors to help you guess. You may only guess once in the form of a comment. The followers who guess correctly get entered into the lottery for that weeks prize. That means if ten followers picked the correct person, a winner will be drawn out of those ten. The winner of the lottery may pick one book written by that weeks featured author. Example: If the answer I posted belongs to John Steinbeck you may pick one of his books in which I will provide as that weeks prize. If you pick a book that is not out yet or if that week features a debut author who’s book is not out yet I will pre-order that book online and have it shipped to your address.

Now on to the GRAND PRIZE PACK!! As of right now this is what it will contain:

-$25 gift card for B&N
