2011 Debut Author Challenge

The Story Siren’s 2010 Debut Author Challenge is winding down (ends officially 12/31/10), so now we’re gearing up for the 2011 Debut Author Challenge!  This is an exciting and fun way to read great new books written by great new authors.  To particpate in the challenge, you need to sign up here.  Kristi (The Story Siren) is requesting that you sign up to read at least 12 of the titles she has listed, but of course you can always read more!  Her sign up page has all of the finer details, especially for those of you who may have a Goodreads account but not a blog.
