For 2013 Debut Authors
Are you a 2013 debut author? I’ve got lots of ways for you to participate and make the challenge better!
You may do any or all of the following -
Add Your Book to the Official List
I have a printable spreadsheet that lists the young adult and middle grade debut titles releasing in 2013. You can view it here! Is your book not on the list? Do you have an update on release date or is the genre wrong? E-mail me here email@example.com and I’ll make sure to update the list.
As per Debut Author Challenge tradition, I will be doing several prize packs throughout the year. I will be giving out a prize pack at the end of each month, a grand finale prize pack, and several smaller prize pack throughout the challenge for participating in mini-challenges.
If you would like to donate items for the prize packs, please e-mail me here firstname.lastname@example.org. Suggested items are signed books, swag (bookmarks, postcards, stickers, posters, pins, etc), but you can feel free to be as creative as you want!
We’re continuing the Debut Author Challenge Tours again this year! You can view more information about the tours here.
If you’d like to donate an ARC or finished copy to the tour site, please check out the information and policies detailed on the tour site.
The Debut Bash
I absolutely loved The Debut Dish feature this past year – you can find out such interesting things about a person based on what they have on their desk.
But instead of doing the Debut Dish again, I’ve come up with The Debut Bash, which is essentially a teen party game themed interview. I’ll be posting these interviews several times a month, depending on interest.
You many answer any of the questions on the form, but I ask that you answer at least three, as well as the mandatory questions that give information on you and your book. If you do not yet have a release date, please just include what season it’s expected to release.
