2012 New Author Challenge


This will be my third year taking part in the New Author Challenge hosted by Literary Escapism.  As much as I have many favourite authors on my auto buy list I still love to discover new authors.  This ties in really well with the Debut Author Challenge but it is also great to discover popular and well known authors that I haven't got around to trying yet.

2010 - I tried 104 new authors
2011 - I tried 115 new authors

I think I'm going to aim to discover another 100 new to me authors in 2012 so we'll have to see if I can achieve that for the third year in a row or not.  If you'd like to join me and take part in the challenge you can sign up here.
