I’ve seen quite a few conversations recently, involving people wanting to check out some books by our Featured Authors before February. I think that’s a FANTASTIC idea!! We’ve all got some favorites attending, but there are also some authors who are new to us, with new stories that are sure to become favorites.
In an effort to help everyone find a place to start… and because we all love contests… we’re going to do a READING CHALLENGE!!
We’ve got 17 weeks until Coastal Magic (AAAHHHHHHHHH!!!! *flails*), so the challenge is set up for one book each week. (Of course, if you read through them faster, and want to read more, that’s ok, too!!)
I asked our Featured Authors what book readers should start with, if they’d never read anything from them before. You can find the Google spreadsheet listing by clicking on the link below. If you’ve already read some from an author, feel free to pick up where you’ve left off. The list is just a starting point for those who want a little direction.
The rules for the contest are:
In addition to your own reading, we’ve got a Facebook Event set up to host miscellaneous book conversations, and even some author Q&A’s. Feel free to join the event group to participate, if you like, although it’s not required for the challenge.
There you have it. An easy-peasy way to not only find some awesome new books to read, but also chat with other readers, AND win some really cool prizes!!

So… WHO’S IN??
I will happily throw in a signed book for each of the prize packs, if you’d like! What a great idea.
