The purpose for authors to take part in the scavenger hunt is to generate interest and traffic to their blogs. To take part in the hunt, you need to have a blog, since to participate you need to post to your blog and link to other blogs taking part.

The hunts requires to present your story and some form of exclusive content in the post to your blog and to provide one digital copy of your book to include in the grand prize.
The exclusive content may be a deleted scene from the book, a character’s interview, a short story, and excerpt from an upcoming story. But you are welcome to offer more to the readers, such as an additional giveaway, swagers, a special discount in the occasion of the hunt.
