I am SO excited to let you all know that we are hosting the 2013 Debut Authors Bash Sign Ups! So far, we have 59 authors on board. Some of the authors are coming in a little late, so more names might be added as we go along. Those authors names will be bolded below.
This year there were a ton of debut authors. So many, that I might have missed a couple! I’m sending out huge apologies if I did! The goal of the 2013 Debut Authors Bash is to promote these awesome authors and their fabulous books. We’re going to do that by hosting this bash from September 1st through September 30th. We’ll both kick off and end the Bash here at YaReads. And because we have so many authors on board, there’s going to be some days where more than one blog will host an author.
The tour will consist of author interviews, character interviews, guest posts, giveaways, and other fun things. Many authors have requested that their blogger create their own material. Likewise, some authors have asked to create a post in advance. Please keep that in mind when choosing your top 4 authors. You are also more than welcome to include a review on your tour stop, but please note that it is not mandatory. If you choose to post a review on your post date, it must be at least 4 stars.
Everyone with a blog is more than welcome to sign up below. No favoritism will be given to popular bloggers or friends. Please let us know in the sign up form below why you want to host your author and please include any posts you’ve done on the author, including guest posts, author interviews, book reviews, WOW, IMM, Teaser Tuesday posts, etc.
The sign ups open up today and will close on July 17th. After that, we will place you with your author and you will receive an email from us if you have been chosen to participate in the 2013 Debut Authors Bash. Once you receive your email, you will have 3 days to send us the material for your author. If you fail to reply, someone else will be placed with your author.
We’re hoping that this years 2013 Debut Authors Bash will be a big success! And we hope that we have the chance to make this an annual thing! All of the information you need to sign up is below…but first…….let’s take a look at this years participating debut authors!
