Debut Author Challenge + My Top Ten Debut Books of 2011

Tuesday, June 7, 2011

Witch Song is listed on the Story Siren's Debut Author Challenge (DAC) list!

Being listed with so many awesome books is super exciting for me. You know what's also really exciting for me? How different Witch Song is from so many of these titles. Most are paranormal, urban, or dystopian. Witch Song is more along the lines of a classic fantasy. I like blazing my own road. ;)

Amber's Top Ten YA Debut Author for 2005

  1. Delirium by Lauren Oliver (I'm actually saving this book for a reward after I finish Forbidden Forest)
  2. Across the Universe by Beth Revis
  3. The Faerie Ring by Kiki Hamilton
  4. The Water Wars by Cameron Stracher
  5. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
  6. A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness (us witchy authors have to stick together)
  7. The Iron Witch by Karen Mahoney (see #6)
  8. The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter
  9. The Near Witch by Victoria Schawb (see 6,7)
  10. A Beautiful Dark by Jocelyn Davies
What Debut Author are you most excited to try?

    Woot! I submitted Witch Song to TSS =D I'm sure many others did as well!

  1. Thanks Shanelle, but I have to as what TSS is. The only TSS I know is toxic shock syndrome. ;)

  1. Wow. Congrats. I hadn't even heard of this thingy.

    I think TSS is The Story Siren maybe?

    Witch Song is definitely one of my most anticipated debut's for this year.

    Also on my list.

    Wildefire by Karsten Knight
    Possess by Gretchen McNeil
    Fury by Elizabeth Miles
    The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
    Ashfall by Mike Mullin
    Wither by Lauren Destefano would be on my list but I got to read the ARC back in 2010 :-)

    Sandy is correct -- tss was short for the Story Siren ... I was reading blogs when I should have been doing other things. *hangs head in shame*

  1. Originality is one of the reasons I intend to read your book. Dystopian, urban, and paranormal books are a dime a dozen. Someone writes on their blog, "I write dystopian YA" and I think...oh yet another one lining up for the great loot pinata...
