NAC Mini-Challenge: The Firsts

It’s time to start the next New Author Mini Challege and we’re reading the débutantes, the virgins, the first-timers.  Have you signed up for it yet?  Do you have your books ready? Let’s see those details again:

Here are the details:

  1. You do not have to be a participant of the New Authors Challenge, but if you’re not, why not?
  2. The Challenge will run from June 1st through the 30th. All reviews must have an June 2010 date.
  3. The goal is to read up to 5 different novels that are either the first in a new series, a new genre for that author or is a brand new author. Write up a review on your blog and then come back to the official start post and add your link to Mr. Linky.
  4. This is a New Author mini-challenge, so ideally the idea is to try someone new, but not required.  The novel just has to be their first – first published, released in that genre or of a new series (which was started within the last year).

To add a little incentive for this mini-challenge, I’m going to offer up a prize. At the end of June, for every review posted, I’ll give each participant an entry (up to 5) to win their book of choice from an author who has been reviewed during the mini challenge.  As with the previous challenges, each participant will have 10 chances to get their name in the drawing – 1 entry for each book reviewed (up to 5) and an additional entry for a second place you review said book.  For instance, if you read Full Moon Rising by Keri Arthur and review it on your blog and Amazon, you’ll get 2 entries.  To add your links, add one to Mr. Linky and then leave your second link (of the same review) in the comments below.  The contest is open to wherever the Book Depository delivers.

When adding your link to Mr Linky, please use the following format: your name (title of the book – author).  Whether you want to put your name or your blog name is up to you.  I’ll be closing Mr. Linky at 9pm EST on June 1st, so make sure all your links are added by then.

I am a 30-something SAHM with two adorable boys and a supportive husband who is very tolerant of my reading addiction. I love to read and easily go through about a dozen books a month – well I did before I had kids. Now, not so much. After my first son was born, I began to take my hobby of reviewing a little more serious and started Literary Escapism to help with my sanity. I love to discuss the fabulous novels I’ve read and meeting all the wonderful people in the book blogging community has been amazing.
