2011 Debut Author Challenge

Friday, December 10, 2010

Join the 2011 Debut Author Challenge?  This wonderful challenge is hosted by The Story Siren.

Here's the rules:

•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.

Qualifying books:

•Books must be a Young Adult or Middle Grade novel.

•DO NOTE: Just because a book has a teen character or is about a teen, does not mean that it is necessarily a Young Adult 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.
