Yeti? The Abominable Snowman Expedition STARTS HERE


Welcome to the adventure, but beware of what lurks in the dark.


It all started with Rachael Harrie's Second Platform-Building Crusade. There were over 200 of us. Then it was further broken down into groups according to what genre you wrote in. Us Group 9 Crusaders consisted of horror, urban fantasy, and paranormal romance writers for young adults.This bloghop is a collaboration with those thirteen fabulous Group 9 Crusaders. We each wrote a snippet that will take you through an adventure, forcing you to make a choice that will send you around bloggerville. As you make your way through the adventure please follow and leave a comment for these fantastic writers.

Meet the fantastic Crusaders of Group Nine.

and me
Kerri Cuevas


I just want to thank Rachael and all the Crusaders for a great couple of months. You guys ROCK! I can't wait for the third Crusade from Monday, August 22, 2011 to October 31, 2011.

Maybe there will be another choose your own adventure, da da dum!



                                   YOUR ADVENTURE STARTS NOW

All evidence suggests that the cave before you is the home of the abominable snowman. The cold sting of snow whips at your face and you are relieved to enter the massive stone shelter. You hope that the creature has set out tea and biscuits for lunch, because you ran out of food hours ago.

The snow crunches beneath your boots. As you walk deeper into the darkness snow turns to frozen dirt. There are patches of matted fur frozen to the walls and the ground is littered with scat. This must be the right cave. You shudder with anticipation and walk forward, but the light from outside is fading.

You put your backpack on the frozen ground and open it. The cider in your thermos has gone frosty, but you drink it anyways. You double check that the battery in your camera is powered up. You take out your flashlight, click it on, and continue into the cave.

You are now in total darkness except for the round stream of light from your flashlight. You point it to the left and it reflects over the icy cavern. You run it along the edge of the wall to see how far back the cave goes, but the light catches movement. You gasp and drop the flashlight and see a dark shadow coming towards you. You bend down to pick up the flashlight and it fumbles out of your hands. You finally grip it and shine the light at the shadow. It is coming at you fast and the hairs on your neck prick up.

Click on your choice.
Do You:   STAY AND FIGHT
Do You:   RUN

I saw your comment on Karen Gowen's blog where she posted today about my book launch. So I came over here to meet you. What a great blog you have here.

Writing one word at a time, as your profile says, is the way to do it. And writing while juggling children isn't easy--or juggling anything in life for that matter.

I'm happy to meet you!
