Announcing the 2012 Debut Author Challenge

The Qwillery's Debut Author Challenge is entering its second year. This year many of the 2012 Debut Authors will be writing a guest post approximately 2 months ahead of his or her debut novel's publication. So you will be getting to know some of these Debut Authors starting next month. Near the debut's publication date, each of the 2012 Debut Authors will be interviewed. Debut Authors' books will be listed in a post on the first of each month. Please check each month's list to let me know if I've missed any debut authors. You can also let everyone participating know which book you will be reading in the comments to the post.

The object of the 2012 Debut Author Challenge is for participants to read at least 12 debut novels during 2012 - one from each month of the year though you may read them anytime between January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2012.

The genres and subgenres covered by the challenge are Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, Epic Fantasy, Historical Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, Paranormal Mystery, Horror, Science Fiction, SciFi Romance, Steampunk, Steampunk Mystery, Steampunk Romance, Supernatural Noir and all their permutations. The debuts are not YA/MG.

This year we will also attempt some group reads of debut novels and invite the author(s) back for some Q&A.

Sign up in the comments below if you'd like to participate.

2012 Debut Challenge Update - Adam Christopher and Empire State - August 8, 2011

Welcome to the very first 2012 Debut Author Challenge Update.

I couldn't be more pleased to announce that Adam Christopher is taking part in the Challenge. His debut novel, Empire State, has a wonderful cover that I absolutely love. I want a poster of it so I can hang it in my office. I really like it!

This is the US cover and is by William Staehle. There will be a different cover for the UK, yet to be revealed.

2012 Debut Challenge Update - Adam Christopher and Empire State - August 8, 2011
It was the last great science hero fight, but the energy blast ripped a hole in reality, and birthed the Empire State - a young, twisted parallel prohibition-era New York.

When the rift starts to close, both worlds are threatened, and both must fight for the right to exist.

File Under: Science Fiction [ Pocket Universe | Heroes or Villains | Speak Easy | Loyalties Divided ]

Empire State is available for preorder at Amazon and Barnes & Noble and probably lots of other places! It will be available in early 2012 from Angry Robot Books.
