We are in the final stretch of A Month of Favorites! Girlxoxo, Estella’s Revenge and I have had SUCH a great time! Today the linkup is at Traveling With T. The prompt is a book discussion or topic- and today, we are going to talk about those people that are newbies in the publishing world- the debut authors.
Let’s play a numbers game- how many books are published in a day? And how many are debut authors?
( I have no numbers- just wanted us all to think!)
With debut authors- life gets tricky. They have no established fan base. We have no personal relationship. All we have is a guess- a summary, a plot that catches our attention and maybe a book cover that catches our eye.
Take a gander at your bookshelf- how many debut authors did you read in 2014? How many are still on your bookshelves waiting to be read?
For me, I read a few. Not a lot. Probably 20 or less.
Now, looking ahead to 2015- I have 2 debut authors for January- which I’m pretty excited about.
How many debut authors are on your radar for 2015?
And… in a world where hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of books are published- how does a debut author catch your eye?
Now time to Linkup!!!!
Happy Reading and Bookishly Yours,
T @ Traveling With T
