This isn't the first time I'm giving this blogging thing a shot. (If you take a look at the entry before this one, you'll see it's from June of 2010--oh dear!). Part of it's a discipline/taking on too much kind of thing, but more than that, I don't think I was ever 100% sure of what I wanted to do with it. I read and follow blogs that are super focused on one thing--writing, knitting, book reviews, etc. but I also love blogs that are random. I'm not exactly sure where this is going, and I'm not going to attempt to define it. Instead, I'm just going to begin. Again.
I was thrilled to see Sirenz (see BOOKS, above) make several to-read lists. One thing the publishing journey has done for me is to introduce me to a host of fabby folks who also have books coming out in 2011. So to restart my blog/website, get myself reading more, and get to know my fellow debut authors (Elevensies!) better, I decided to do The Story Siren's 2011 Debut Author Challenge. I plan on reading more than the required twelve, but as it was suggested to come up with a list, here's where I'm STARTING.
Chasers by Brian Farrey
The Liar Society by Lisa and Laura Roecker
XVI by Julia Karr
Across the Universe by Beth Revis
Warped by Marurissa Guibord
Popular by Alissa Grosso
Wildefire by Karsten Knight
Dead Rules by Randy Russell
The Year We Were Famous by Carole Estby Dagg
Delaney Collins, F.G. by Kathy McCullough
The Circle Cast: The Lost Years of Morgan Le Fay by Alex Epstein
The Lipstick Laws by Amy Holder
It was tough to narrow down the choices, so I allowed myself a baker's dozen. Somehow this made finalizing the list even more difficult, go figure--but it's a start. Game on!
