Sign-Ups for the Debut Author Challenge!

It’s that time of the year again! It’s time for the FOURTH ANNUAL DEBUT AUTHOR CHALLENGE!!

I know I say this every year, but I am extremely excited to be hosting the challenge this year and I think this will be the BEST YEAR YET! For those of you that have participated in the challenge before, there are some changes that might affect you!

I want to thank all my DAC 2012 Helpers! They have been busy working behind the scenes helping me get everything ready! I can’t thank you all enough!!

CHALLENGE OBJECTIVE:

  • To read & review a minimum of twelve young adult or middle grade debut novels between the dates of January 1, 2012 – January 31, 2013.*

*The 2013 extension is so that December Debuts can be read and count toward the challenge.

  • Any advance reader copies you read from 2012 BEFORE the January 1st start date DO NOT count toward the challenge! 
  • You can read twelve books in one month, or one book a month. It doesn’t matter as long as you have 12 read by the end of the year!
