New Author Challenge

I keep telling myself no more challenges but this one is perfect for me. The New Authors Challenge is hosted by Literary Escapism and I love trying out new authors! Not only do I love the button but there are so many awesome debut authors and new to me authors out there that I just can't resist this challenge. Head on over to Literary Escapism to sign up. I thnk I'll aim for 25 new authors!

Here are the guidelines:

1.The challenge will run from January 1, 2010 through December 31, 2010.

2. Since this is an author challenge, there is no restriction on choosing your novels. They can definitely be from other challenges. However, the authors must be new to you and, preferably from novels. Anthologies are a great way to try someone new, but only a third of your new authors can be from anthologies.

3. I want this to be an easy challenge, so you can pick to do either 15, 25 or 50 new authors. It all depends on how fast you read and how adventurous you want to be. For me, I’m trying another 50 new authors. If you reach your goal halfway through the year, don’t stop. Any new author you try can be added to Mr. Linky. We all want to know about your new experience.

4. After reading your new author, write your review and then come back here and add your link to Mr. Linky. Make sure you include your name and the author, but adding the title is completely up to you.

5 .Bloggers or Non-Bloggers alike are welcome

1. Witch Fire by Anya Bast
2. Eternal on the Water by Joseph Monninger
3. Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia
4. Women of Magdalene by Rosemary Poole-Carter

  1. Good luck on this challenge. Thanks for blogging about it..I will join this one. Heading over to Mr. Linky now.

  2. I did 25 this year so I got all optimistic and am going for 50 this year. We'll see how that pans out!

  3. I signed up for this challenge too! I think it should be fun to see all the great authors everyone who participates in it reads. Happy reading!

  4. Better watch out. You'll be doing as many challenges as I am LOL. We are both crazy!
