Debut Author Challenge 2021 Sign Up

Here we are into 2021, and I’m only just beginning to take a look at the challenges I want to participate in this year. I still haven’t finished updating my challenges for 2020. Yeah, I’m a little behind. But baby steps. I’ll be playing catch up for a while and that’s okay.

I decided to take on this particular challenge because I know it’s hard for a new author to break into the folds, and I imagine the pandemic has made it that much harder. So, I want to be intentional about supporting new authors this year.

What is the Debut Author Challenge?

It’s a year long reading challenge in which you are encouraged (and, of course, challenged) to read as many debut books as possible. There are different tiers that I’ll get into in a second, so whether you’re a slower reader or a rapid reader, there will be a tier that will challenge you. It’s being put on by Amber @ Books of Amber.

The Debut Author Challenge begins 1st January 2021, and ends 30th January 2022. These dates will allow December ’21 debuts (if there are any) to be included in the challenge.

What are the tiers?

Tier 1: Read 3 debut books
Tier 2: Read 6 debut books
Tier 3: Read 12 debut books
Tier 4: Read 20 debut books

What Will I Read???

I’m honestly not sure yet. I have a few in mind already, but I’ll need to do a little more research before I could put together a potential TBR for this one.

Y’all know I love my challenges, so if you think there’s one I should know about, be sure to let me know! I’d also love to hear about challenges you’re taking on this year or how you did with any 2020 challenges!

Happy Reading,
