New Author Challenge 2009


The challenge will run from January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2009.

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, but anthologies are also a great way to try someone new.

I want this to be an easy challenge, so you state how many new authors you want to try this year and then that’s your challenge. If you want a number given to you, try for either 25 or 50.

When you read a new author, write your review (either at your site or the group blog) and then come back here and post a link to your review.
