New Author Challenge 2011!

I'm very excited to see that Literary Escapism is hosting the New Author Challenge again for 2011.  This is one challenge that I have participated in, and actually completed, for the past 2 years and I've really enjoyed it!  So head on over to the sign-up page to check out the guidelines, which are pretty minimal I might add, and join in the fun!  I think I am going to shoot for 25 new authors again this year, as that seems to be a lucky number for me with this challenge.  I will list the new authors on this post as I read them.  So what are you waiting for?  Go, go now!
