Just like the start of a new school year, a debut novel can be full of new experiences and adventures. Everyone loves a fresh start, don’t you?
Earlier this week I had a post announcing a month-long event called Fresh Start September and now that the month is upon us, I can tell you all about this fabulous feature!
The idea behind Fresh Start September is to spotlight debut authors and authors with new releases in September. My fabulous co-hosts, Melissa from Melissa’s Midnight Musings and Daphne from Winged Reviews, and I are going to bring you information on some great debut titles and new releases, and you’ll be able to find out more about the authors behind the books by reading some wonderful interviews with them. There will also be interviews with publishing industry insiders, various discussions, a cover poll and guest posts from fellow bloggers. There is even a month-long giveaway going on as well.
Here’s our complete schedule for the month so you can see just which books and authors will be featured, and on whose blog. This post will be updated with live links as the posts go up so you can find them all in one spot. Alternatively, you can follow and tweet with us all month using the hashtag #freshsept!
