Debut Author Challenge 2017: January-March Review Link-Up

January 1, 2017 Debut Author Challenge 6

Happy New Year! Welcome to the 2017 Debut Author Challenge! I can’t believe another year has gone by! I feel like time is flying. I still remember ringing in the new millennium, which feels like yesterday but was really 17 years ago! What!? I hope you’re excited for another amazing year of reading and a pretty wonderful line-up of 2017 debut books!

Welcome back to all of the returning participants, and for all you shiny new participants, I’m so glad you’ve decided to join! I’ve already gotten to talk with a ton of this year’s debut authors, and they are ready to be interviewed and give things away and love us all for supporting them in their debut year. The thing I love most about this challenge is the opportunity it gives us to give new authors a boost. :)

There have been no changes to last year’s rules, however there has been one small change to the link-ups that I think will make things easier on everyone involved. Instead of monthly review link-ups, we’re doing quarterly review link-ups now! The remaining link-ups will be posted on the first day of April, July, and October. As always, the link-ups will be easily accessible by clicking on the button on the top of my sidebar here on the blog. Remember to post the links to your reviews because the prize packs will be even cooler this year!

Some things to remember:

– For the month of January ONLY, you may link-up your reviews for 2016 debuts. This is great for two reasons: 1. December 2016 debuts get more time. 2. There’s not a lot of 2017 debuts yet!

– This is the review link-up for all debut reviews you write in January, February, and March. This does not mean that the books you review have to be published during these three months. You can read and review any debut, any month of the year.

– In order to get credit for your review, you must have read the book in 2017. If you read an ARC of a 2017 debut in 2016, it does not count. (I don’t want people with access to ARCs to have an advantage over those who don’t.)

– I’m here if you have any questions at all, so don’t hesitate to shoot me a message via Twitter or comment or homing pigeon.

    I’m super excited to be doing this challenge again! Last year I think I got 6 debuts read and last year was a SUPER busy year for me. So, I’m hoping to get at least 12 read this year! Thanks again for hosting and wishing us all a great reading year!

    Question!

    I thought the January reviews still counted for the 2016 challenge but after reading this post it doesn’t seem that way. So I finished reading and reviewed a 2016 debut this week and was going to link it up here, but the book is a June of 2016 debut, does it count for the January link up? Thanks, Jana! :)

      Hi Jen! The 2016 challenge is over (although you can count this review on your personal stats for the 2016 challenge if you want!). For this month only, 2016 debuts count towards the 2017 challenge. So yes, link up your review here because it totally counts. :)
