challenge month 2016Hi everyone! Today we continue with our Reading Challenge Month by starting week 3: New-to-Me Author Week! This one is pretty self explanatory — pick a book by an author that you haven’t read before. I know for a lot of folks (myself included sometimes), we tend to stick with our tried and true favorites. So this week is a chance to push the envelope a bit and pick a book by someone we haven’t read, hopefully an author who can be a new favorite!

This week is sponsored by Interlude Press. They are giving away a fabulous prize:

One winner will receive an assortment of ebooks and signed paperbacks! In the spirit of New-to-Me Author Week, the ebooks are all new Interlude authors in 2016.

2016 Debuts:

  • Sweet by Alicia Constantine
  • Speakeasy by Suzey Ingold
  • The Star Host by F.T. Lukens
  • The Better to Kiss You With by Michelle Osgood
  • Set Me Free by Kitty Stephens
