Hello there! I’m Sarah Glenn Marsh, and I’m excited to be your hostess for this leg of the hunt.
I have one pointy ear, so I’m basically a half-elf.
My favorite color is pink.
I love scary movies and books.
Kit-kats are my favorite candy.
My greyhounds’ names are Grimm and Khaleesi.
I’m currently writing my seventh novel!
Before we get started, let’s go over the rules…
DIRECTIONS: Below, you’ll notice that I’ve listed my favorite number. Collect the favorite numbers of all the authors on TEAM GREEN, and then add them up (don’t worry, you can use a calculator!)
HINT: THE SECRET NUMBER IS HIGHLIGHTED IN GREEN!
ENTRY FORM: Once you’ve added up all the numbers, make sure you fill out the form here to officially qualify for the grand prize. Only entries that have the correct number will qualify.
RULES: Open internationally, anyone below the age of 18 should have a parent or guardian’s permission to enter. To be eligible for the grand prize, you must submit the completed entry form by SUNDAY, APRIL 8th, at noon Pacific Time. Entries sent without the correct number or without contact information will not be considered.
There are SIX contests plus a bonus prize going on simultaneously and you can enter one or all! I am a part of the GREEN TEAM but there is also a RED TEAM, BLUE TEAM, GOLD TEAM, PURPLE TEAM, & PINK TEAM! Check out each team for a chance to win lots of different sets of signed books!

Now that all the technical stuff is out of the way, let’s meet the author I am hosting on this hunt:
She’s here to tell us about her latest book, WASTE OF SPACE!
Waste of Space is a tremendous success. Millions of people tune in. Ratings are through the roof.
And then something goes wrong.
And just as the cast members start to suspect something has gone wrong,
And just as the viewers start to know that something has gone wrong . . .
All communication is severed.
Now no one can tell what’s real and what’s fake, instability and paranoia loom large, and the only way for the cast to figure out what’s going on is for them to work together. The kids stumble closer to the truth, dread seeping into every corner of the ship as they find out what happens when a reality show loses its grip on reality.
This is my original sketch of the Laika, the spaceship into which all ten Spacetronauts of WASTE OF SPACE are crammed. I don’t know why the shape of a bottle occurred to me, but since it worked out quite nicely for what needed to happen on the ship, I kept it. It also allowed for plenty of camera angles – an actual logistical element for a reality television show, but one that also let me explore the narrative from several points of view at the same time. Also, it has a hot tub.
Don’t forget to enter the contest for a chance to win a ton of books by me, Gina Damico, and more!
Add up all the favorite numbers of the authors on the green team and you’ll have the secret code to enter for the grand prize! Just look at all these awesome books from Team Green:
