Event, Fresh Start September / September 1, 2012

Fresh Start September Logo

Just like the start of a new school year,
a debut novel can be full of new experiences and adventures.
Everyone loves a fresh start, don’t you?


Earlier this week, I announced a new feature that will be taking over the blog during the month of September! So what exactly is Fresh Start September?

The idea behind Fresh Start September is to spotlight debut authors and authors with new releases in September. My fabulous co-hosts Faye from A Daydreamer’s Thoughts and Melissa from Melissa’s Midnight Musings and I are going to bring you information on some great debut titles and new releases and you’ll be able to find out more about the authors behind the books by reading some wonderful interviews with them. There will also be interviews with publishing industry insiders, various discussions, a cover poll and guest posts from fellow bloggers. There may even be a giveaway or two in there somewhere.

Here’s our complete schedule for the month so you can see just which books and authors will be featured. This post will be updated with live links as the posts go up so you can find them all in one spot. Alternatively, you can follow and tweet with us all month using the hashtag #freshsept!
