Debut Author Challenge – January
Today is THE DAY. If you’re confused about what THE DAY is, today is the day when the 2013 Debut Author Challenge officially kicks off!
I’ve been waiting for this day for so long – not only because I want to dive into some debuts myself, but also because I’m excited to see what everyone reads and which authors you all end up adding to your auto-buy list!
The January 2013 prize pack and review link-up for this month is at the end of the post! And here’s a list of all the debuts (that I know of) that are releasing in January! If you know of any more, please feel free to comment or tweet me or e-mail me :) The full list of 2013 debuts is here.
Be sure to check back tomorrow for the January mini-challenge!

January Prize Pack & Review Link-Up
The January prize pack is full of awesome prizes! A few authors and publishers have donated copies of their books, as well as a ton of really neat swag, and I’m throwing in a few books as well :)
Also, be sure to sign up for the Debut Author Challenge newsletter for access to once-a-month interviews, news, and exclusive giveaways! This month’s newsletter will feature Lenore Appelhans, Erica Lorraine Scheidt, and Lisa M. Basso!
Here’s a quick rules recap for the link up! Each review of a 2013 YA/MG debut you post in the month of January and link up will count as one entry for the January prize pack. If you review three debuts in January, that will be three entries for the January prize pack.
The debuts you review can be released any time during 2013, but it must be reviewed in the month of January to count for the January prize pack. If you review a title that releases in February but post the review in January, that will count for the January prize pack.
Please let me know if you have any questions! :)
