New Authors Challenge 2009

I’ve decided to join Literary Escapism’s (I love that name) New Authors Challenge for 2009. The goal is fun and simple – you pick a number of new-to-you authors that you will read in 2009.

Hmmm. Now that I’ve read what I’ve written, I’m wondering if maybe “new author” means something different. Could it mean “new authors” as in first-published authors? I’ll send an email to Literary Escapism to find out and update this post. Update: Yes, Literary Escapism tells me it’s very definitely “new to me” books. I might update my challenge goal – the idea of discovering new-to-me authors is very enticing, and if I had a higher number, I’d try a little harder!

In the meantime, whether or not it’s “new to me authors” or “newly published authors”, I have decided to set my goal at 30.

    Thank you! I am really looking forward to it. I always feel so good when I find a “new favorite author”, and this challenge almost guarantees at least a handful of these.
