New Authors Challenge 2009

Since I'm already doing the 2nds Challenge, why not try the New Authors Challenge as well?

1. The challenge will run from January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2009.
2. Since this is an author challenge, there is no restriction on choosing your novels. They can definitely be from other challenges. However, the authors must be new to you and, preferably from novels, but anthologies are also a great way to try someone new.
3. I want this to be an easy challenge, so you state how many new authors you want to try this year and then that’s your challenge. For me, I’m trying another 50 new authors. If you want a number given to you, try for either 25 or 50.
4. Add your name to the Mr. Linky below. If you do not have your own blog, you can join the group blog here.
5. Bloggers or Non-Bloggers alike are welcome
6. When you read a new author, write your review (either at your site or the group blog) and then come back here and post a link to your review.

If you’re looking for some ideas, check out the Author page.

My list will probably be:
1) Vicki Myron
2) Jill Shalvis
3) Nalini Singh
4) Naomi Alderman
5) Patricia Davids
6) Suzanne Brockmann
7) Marjane Satrapi
8) Merline Lovelace
9) Marie Ferrarella
10) Rutu Modan
11) Maki Minami
12) Lawrence Kaplan
13) Jong Eun Lee
14) Kristan Higgins
15) Karen Tei Yamashita
16) Cormac McCarthy
17) Sam Savage
18) Janice Kay Johnson
19) Carly Phillips
20) Julie James
21) Donna Kauffman
22) Nick Sagan
23) Rachel Caine
24) D.D. Barrant
25) Sara Orwig
26) Jay Asher
27) WIll Eisner
28) Alan Bennett
29) Cassandra Clare
30) Gareth P. Jones

I'll leave it at 30 as my original goal was only 10 new authors. I'm sure if I kept looking I would find a few more, though.
