Fresh Start September: An Introduction

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?

A few days ago I brought you all an announcement of a new feature that will be happening throughout the month of September. What is Fresh Start September, you ask?

The idea behind Fresh Start September is to spotlight debut authors and their books, as well as authors with new releases. My awesome co-hosts Daphne from Winged Reviews and Faye from A Daydreamer's Thoughts and I are going to bring you information  on some great debut titles, as well as information on new releases from authors you may have read before. You'll also find out more about the authors behind the books, and get to read some wonderful interviews with them. We'll also have 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 long using the hashtag #freshsept!
