2011 DAC


On twitter, late last year, a friend asked if anyone had any reading challenges for 2011. I had decided to read at least one speculative fiction debut author (non-YA) per month in 2011. For me speculative fiction includes Urban Fantasy, Fantasy (High or Epic), Paranormal Romance, Science Fiction, SciFi Romance, Paranormal Mystery, Paranormal Thriller, Steampunk, and Historical Fantasy. There's more, but you get the idea.

Debut authors' books will be listed in a post on the first of each month. Please check each month's list to let us 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.

I've created a button for the challenge if you'd like to post it on your blog. It's not required of course. You can find the code at the top of the column on the right.

Happy New Reading Year!

A 2011 DAC Badge if you'd like one for your website or blog.
