Treasure Hunt – Week 6


Where’s the clue?

Welcome back to my Orca Book treasure hunt. Clue 6 is hidden in a book about the Franklin Expedition, written by John Wilson. No, it’s not Graves of Ice or North with Franklin. No. It isn’t Across Frozen Seas, either!

The clue isn’t in any of his earlier books about the Franklin Expedition. It’s a new book about two characters called Sam and Annabel and— No! It is NOT Bones or Stolen!

Maybe it’s easier to just point you to Orca’s Spring 2016 Catalogue and let you find John Wilson’s new Franklin Expedition book for yourself. After all, this is a treasure hunt.

Treasure? What treasure?

You’re one clue away. If you collect all 7 clues, you could win $50 in Orca Books. And new books are the best treasure of all.

How to play

  1. Read the 7 Treasure Hunt posts in my blog, posted biweekly between December 1 and February 23. Follow the links to another Orca author. (Late getting started? Catch up here.)
  2. You’re looking for a word hidden in the title of a newly published or upcoming Orca book. The word relates in some way to my Orca Sports novel Betting Game, so look for words about teamwork, soccer or gambling.
  3. Once you’ve found all 7 words, send them to me by March 14 via my Contact page. Remember to include your name and a valid email address. (Sorry—you have to live in Canada or the United States to win.)
  4. I’ll post the winner’s name by March 22.

Good luck and happy hunting!
