2011 Debut Author Challenge participant information:
~The objective of the DAC is to read at least twelve novels from Young Adult or Middle Grade Authors. While twelve is the minimum there is no maximum limit! I encourage readers who can read more than twelve to do so!
~Anyone can join. You don't have to be a blogger, and you don't have to live in the United States.
~You do not have to have an blog written in English to participate.
~You can join at anytime. The challenge runs from January 1, 2011 to December 31, 2011.
~Books must be a Young Adult or Middle Grade novel.
~This must be the authors debut with a release date in 2011.
~If an author has a previous novel published under adult fiction/nonfiction or children's fiction/nonfiction, they can still qualify for the challenge if they are releasing their YA or MG debut.
More challenge guidelines:
~Novels must be read between January 1, 2011- December 31, 2011. That means, those of you that have read arc forms of the titles early will not be able to count those toward your challenge totals.
~You can use debuts from other countries, but the novel cannot be previously released in your county. (I explain this a little bit more in the FAQ section, if you want to check that out!)
