I'm extremely excited to be hosting the 2011 Debut Author Challenge! I've worked out a few kinks throughout the years and I'm hoping that this year will be even better than the last! This is a post where you can find out a little bit more about the challenge if you are unfamiliar with it and decide if you'd like to join up this year.
2011 Debut Author Challenge participant information:
•The objective of the DAC is to read at least twelve novels from Young Adult or Middle Grade Authors. While twelve is the minimum there is no maximum limit! I encourage readers who can read more than twelve to do so!
•Anyone can join. You don't have to be a blogger, and you don't have to live in the United States.
•You do not have to have an blog written in English to participate.
•You can join at anytime. The challenge runs from January 1, 2011 to December 31, 2011.
•Books must be a Young Adult or Middle Grade novel.
•This must be the authors debut with a release date in 2011.
•If an author has a previous novel published under adult fiction/nonfiction or children's fiction/nonfiction, they can still qualify for the challenge if they are releasing their YA or MG debut.
I've tried to compose a list of 2011 Debut Authors, you can find a spreadsheet below. If you now of a debut title that I've missed, please fill out this form so that I can submit it to my spreadsheet. Please note this is a list of US debuts only. I am in the process of getting a list of UK debuts and hoping to possibly get an AUS debut list as well.
