Jo Cotterill’s stop on the UKYA Easter Egg Hunt!

egg hunt


Welcome to the UKYA Easter Egg Hunt! One very lucky winner will win a huge grand prize of signed books by over thirty YA authors who write and live in the UK (including me! See below…)

All you have to do is:

  • read this blog,
  • count up how many UKYA branded Easter eggs you see in the blog (they’re the ones with writing on – DON’T count the ones in the banner at the top!),
  • and follow the link at the end to the next blog. Keep going until you get back to the blog where you started, and add up how many eggs youโ€™ve seen along the way.

I-READ-UKYA-200PXEmail your final answer to: A winner will be chosen at random from all correct entries, and contacted by email.

This closes at noon (UK time) on Sunday, 5th April, and is open internationally.

So get finding those eggs! And some awesome UKYA authors and books along the way ๐Ÿ™‚

If you’ve found my blog through the Easter Egg Hunt, HELLOOOO! Come in, have a cuppa (well, now that you’re here, it’d be rude to leave straight away, wouldn’t it?!)

I’m Jo Cotterill and I write all sorts of books but my latest is LOOKING AT THE STARS, a story for 11 upwards about war, families, hope and the power of the imagination. It’s been nominated for the Carnegie, and shortlisted for the UKLA and Oxfordshire Book Awards, which is making me RIDICULOUSLY happy. Next year I have two books for slightly younger readers coming out, one of which has been a fond dream of mine for ages – a female superhero!

I-READ-UKYA-200PXI love reading children’s and YA books – in fact I rarely read anything else – and I often review on my blog too. And I write about random life stuff and the ups and downs of being a writer. Oh – and I run the wonderful multi-author blog Girls Heart Books too! It’s really nice to meet you – and good luck with the Egg Hunt!

(It’s OK, you can go now, you’ve stayed the polite amount of time.)

Next, you need to visit the blog of the very lovely Katie Dale!

Good luck!

NB I shall be contributing a signed copy of one of my ‘edgy’ YA books to the competition prize – a book I wrote under my maiden name Joanna Kenrick and which I am extremely proud of. Be warned though, it’s definitely not for younger readers!

This competition is now closed – congratulations to Sophie, who will shortly find her letterbox OVERWHELMED with books!
