A Writer's Treasure Hunt - Week Two

After NaNoWriMo wraps up, we’ll all be proud of ourselves for our hard work, but also ready for a break. So, I would like to give away two books to one lucky winner as an end of November treat!

The first book you can win is an autographed copy of The NaNoLand Chronicles  By: Chris Baty. The second is a surprise that you will have to uncover. Each week in November I will post clues so that you can hunt down one of the words in the title of the mystery book.
After all clues are posted, the first ten people to unscramble the words, and comment with the correct book title, will go into a drawing to win both books! The winner will be announced on December 1, 2011.

Clues for Week Two: The word you are looking for this week is five letters long.

1)    Head over to Abby Fower's amazing blog.

2)    The first letter can be found in Abby's post "Bits of Awesome" from 9-25-2011. Find the word ALSO in the post. The letter you're looking for comes right after this.

3)    Find the categories section of Abby's blog. Click on "Blogs to See". The letter you're looking for is the 1st letter of the 12th word in the very last sentence of the post.

4)    Next find Abby's 'eye candy'!!! You need the middle letter of the 9th word in the caption. Enjoy.

5)    Check out her contest tab. Why not put in your suggestion while you're there? The letter you want is the 2nd letter in the 3rd subheading.

6)    Last, find Abby's post from November 7, 2011. You need the 3rd letter in this post's title.

Once you’ve hunted down this week’s word hold on to it and link up below so other treasure hunters can check out your blog!

If you need to catch up, the first week's word can be found here.

Best of luck,



  1. Oooh, a treasure hunt! Sounds like a lot of fun!

  2. Hiya Lillie. I have two questions - for clue 3, I'm not sure which sentence you mean as the last sentence? None of the last few sentences are 12 or more words long? I'm missing something here...
    And also for the last clue, can you tell us what the post is about so I can search for it on Abby's blog? Her blog archive is only going up to late July and no earlier, I've had a play around but as far as I can see, the only way to get to the earlier July post is to click back one page at a time (for me anyway, why does my computer hate me?).

  3. Awesome Lillie! I am still loving this treasure hunt idea! I am off to search my own blog! Whoo-hoo!

  4. Hey Janelle, I've tried to make it a bit clearer. Thanks for pointing out the date issue! The sentence in clue 3 is at the very, very end of the post. Right before the comments section :)

  5. Thanks Lillie. It was probably just me being a noob, combined with my mean computer! I'm going to go look now!
