This is a new to me challenge for some reason I didn’t see this one last year but I am really happy I did find this before January 2010.
Jackie from Literary Escapism is hosting the New Authors Challenge. If you want to take part just click on her name for the sign up as that is the direct link.
The purpose of the New Authors Challenge is to discover new authors that you have never heard of or read before. You can read from any genre of books.
As for me this past year I managed to discover so many new to me authors that I loved and might not have really read otherwise. I love discovering new authors.
So some simple guidelines of this challenge is:
-It starts January 1, 2010 and ends December 31,2010.
-Crossover of books in other challenges are allowed.
-The authors must be new to you and, preferably from novels. Anthologies are a great way to try someone new, but only a third of your new authors can be from anthologies.
-You can pick anywhere from 15 , 25, or 50. I am going to aim for 50 as I am sure I can manage that and by the way if you happen to surpass your goal then continue on.
I have to make sure that I send my links back as I am bad with doing that part of challenges.
Will this be a challenge you will be taking part in?

You’re going challenge crazy! Good luck!
Oooh, you’re brave! Well, hey, I know you won’t have a problem completing this one!
What is great about these challenges is that I love to discover new authors and I am sure that a majority of my reading this year was by new authors.
Plus they all work well as cross overs too 🙂
