What is Debut a debut?
In response to the ever increasing challenges emerging authors face in making a name (and a sale), Susan and Erica are striving to inspire a little camaraderie and support among authors by encouraging them to debut one another, featuring the new work of an emerging author.
The basics from Writing Aspirations:
“During the week of 12 Feb through 17 Feb, read a book written by a debut author and post your review by 17 February. Send Susan or Erica the permalink to your review and you will be entered in a drawing for some great prizes.”
Susan: susanWestofMars [at] gmail [dot] com
Erica: rashenbo [at] gmail [dot] com
Be sure to take the time to review all the rules and specifics over at Writing aspirations in their post Contest Time : Debut a Debut.
While I can’t guarantee that Brainripples will be a participant, you never know when I’ll wiggle a little room into my day to read a new book, and share my thoughts.
I encourage you to join in the fun, and let us know about your review here at Brainripples too so we can all hop over and see what you’ve discovered!
If you’re looking for a place to start, Writing Aspirations has posted a list of suggested authors to help get you rolling.
Finally, if you yourself are a debut author, or know of a debut author’s work you admire, be sure to contact Erica or Susan (email addresses above) to help them grow their list.
For those feeling generous and philanthropic, donations to add to their table of prizes are welcome too!
Good luck, and have fun everyone!
