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.
