Debut Showcase 2020: Introduction & January 2020 Debut Books

And we’re back in the game! Debut Showcase is an old feature from back in the day when I was posting more regularly, and I wanted to bring it back for 2020 with some new faces and some fresh ideas. I’m so incredibly passionate about promoting debut authors, and due to me wanting to share the love, this feature was born.

What to expect from Debut Showcase

These Debut Showcase posts will be posted throughout the month. The first post of the month will list all of the debuts that are releasing in the upcoming month, as well as the dates I’ll be posting my interviews with the debut authors.

Throughout the month I will be posting my reviews of the debut books, as well as author interviews so you can get to know the authors and their works.

At the end of the month, I’ll be posting a wrap up post that will collect all of these things, PLUS I’ll be including links to posts from other members of the community, PLUS there will be a monthly giveaway in which you can win one debut from that previous month. Sound good? I thought so.

Why bring Debut Showcase back now?

Like I said, I’ve been passionate about promoting debut authors ever since I first started blogging. I launched this feature in 2012, and I was sad when I could no longer keep it up. But now I have the time to do it, and I have the knowledge and the connections to make it into something even bigger, so why not now? Also, having it be a new decade was really motivating for me. 2020 is going to be great!

How can I be involved?

If you’re a blogger, it would greatly help me if you subscribed to my blog and shared my posts! If you know of any debut book that I haven’t featured in my posts, then shoot me a message. There’s always a chance I could miss something. And if you have written your own posts about the book(s), send me the link and I’ll put it in my post! I love to share the love.

I also have a couple of things planned for the coming year (a challenge and a readathon may be on the horizon!)

If you’re a debut author in 2020, feel free to send me a message about your book, as well as telling me whether or not you’d like to be interviewed. If you’re traditionally published, there’s a good chance your book is on my radar anyway, but it doesn’t hurt to check.

All in all, what would really help promote debut authors is engagement and sharing my posts.

Anyway, enough with the rambling. Let me tell you about the debut authors that have books coming out in January 2020!
