YASH Spring 2017 Edition!



Welcome my lovelies to the latest edition of the YA Scavenger Hunt! 

Are you ready to read fun things, find new authors and win some books? 

Then you are in the right place!


Updates! 2017 Edition : Patreon, Newsletter, and other fun things.

Hey Team! So you're probably wondering what I've been up to and perhaps want a little information as to what's going on--so here it is!

Pyromantic hits the shelves 3/21/17! I'm so excited. Can't wait until then? My publisher is doing a Goodreads giveaway this month! You can find it HERE starting 1/20/17 until 1/27/17. 

YASH October 2016!


To those who have never been here, welcome! My name is Lish McBride and I'll be hosting this leg of the Scavenger Hunt. 

Update! Now with more update-y goodness!

Lots of little stuff to tell you about! First, Pyromantic (the follow up to Firebug) is slated for a March 21st release date! You can preorder it at your local bookshop, or online! For example, look at this lovely listing on Indiebound! Isn't that cover preeeety? It's not the official cover until they say so, but I hope we get to keep that one! Can't wait? Keep an eye on this space and the internet--there are bound to be ARE (Advance Reader Edition) copy giveaways at some point. 

General Update

I think we can all agree that I'm pretty terrible at posting things on ye olde blargy. It's a combination of factors--1) I assume none of you care what I'm up to 2) I don't feel I have anything exciting to say and 3) I'm busy/lazy and sometimes 4) I've learned that I can post stuff on here and the FAQ but still get the same emails asking the same questions I've already answered several times in both places, so there's a weird feeling of futility about the whole thing.

But it's mostly number 3.

YA Scavenger Hunt Is Almost Here!

I'm participating this year! It's my first year, and I'm going to be honest--I'm a little overwhelmed by the whole thing. So many authors and books--which is fun times for you, because that means more prizes to be won! Prizes are the best, especially when those prizes are books. So stay tuned to ye olde blog for the fun. I'll be TEAM BLUE which is, of course, THE BEST TEAM. (I'm horribly biased.) Check out my team!

Another tidbit of Pyromantic

It must be editing time again...


"A minivan?” I asked as he hit the unlock button. “You taking the kids to soccer practice after this?"

10th Anniversary of Katrina

I just posted this to Facebook, but thought I'd put it here for those folks that don't participate in FB. I'm not sure what my voice adds to the clamour, really, but felt like saying it anyway:

Yet Another Pyromantic Snippet

Because editing makes me want to share.


I slumped in my chair. "I hate everything."
