2017 New Author Challenge

This is my eighth year taking part in the New Author Challenge hosted by Literary Escapism.  They don't seem to have posted a sign up for 2017 yet but hopefully that will come soon, in the meantime I'm just creating this thread to keep a track for myself of the new authors I read this year.

As much as I have many favourite authors on my auto buy list I still love to discover new authors.  This is also great to discover both brand new and well known authors that I haven't got around to trying yet.

If you'd like to join me and take part in the challenge you can sign up here.

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