- You must have a blog, a Goodreads account, a YouTube account, an Amazon account – any where you can post your reviews and share them with others.
- There is no deadline to join the 2013 Debut Author Challenge, but make sure you give yourself enough time to achieve the goal!
- ARCs of 2013 debuts read before January 01, 2013 do not count towards your challenge goal.
- The 2013 debuts must be read between January 01, 2013 – January 31, 2014 to count for the 2013 Debut Author Challenge. The extra month is to allow participants more time to read the December releases.
- 2013 debuts must be young adult or middle grade in order to count towards the challenge.
- The title must be the author’s young adult or middle grade debut. If they have previously published an adult title, and this is their first young adult/middle grade title, that counts towards the challenge. If this is their second young adult/middle grade title, it does not count towards the challenge.
- Each review equals one entry in the monthly prize pack. If you post six review of debut titles in January, you have six entries to win the January prize pack.
Challenge Objective: each participant come up with a list of at least twelve (12) debut books to read and review in 2013. You can read as many as you want, but in order to be eligible for the grand prize, you must have read and reviewed at least twelve (12)
Runs from: January 1, 2013 – January 31, 2014
Books that count: Must be a young adult or middle grade title. Must be the author’s YA or MG debut, released in 2013. If an author has a previous novel published for adults or children, they can still qualify for the challenge. If an author has a previous YA or MG title, they do not qualify for the challenge.
