Delightful Debutantes - a new feature on the blog & your chance to win a great 2011 title!

One of my favourite aspects of blogging is finding out about new authors and their books.  I especially like to feature debut authors on here and have interviewed a couple already. So, I thought I'd start up a new feature that's dedicated entirely to debut authors.  Delightful Debutantes will launch on the blog on Monday, October 25th, and will then feature regularly.   I'd love it if you could check out these posts, and leave some comments to support debut authors.  You can expect to find interviews, guest posts, exclusive extracts and teasers and maybe even some giveaways. I'll also endeavour to review many of the books I feature on Delightful Debutantes.

Some great debut authors have already signed up, including Beth Revis (Across the Universe), Cat Clarke (Entangled) and Daisy Whitney (The Mockingbirds).  Along with 2011 debutantes I'm also planning on featuring some debut authors from 2010 so we can hear about their lives post-publication.

Sounds good?

*If anyone reading this is an upcoming debut or recently published author and  would like to take part, I'd love to hear from you.  My contact details are: here.

There's something in it for you too, lovely readers!  You can win a great 2011 title just by filling in the following form.  It's a little different from my usual competitions on here (which most just require a name and email address), but I'm looking for info in this one, so get those thinking caps on! Check out Goodreads & The Elevensies if you're unsure of upcoming debuts.


Win the book of your choice by filling in the form below....




COMPETITION CLOSED! WINNER ANNOUNCED SOON!

  5. @Misha - sorry about that. Most of my giveaways are international but when using the book depository I just go with their rules.

    @Fi-chan - don't worry, you're not the only one!

    People - Forever by Maggie Stiefvater is not a debut! Ditto on Desires of the Dead and Delirium! :D
