Celebrating Debutantes 2017: Kick-Off!

on June 1, 2017

Hey everyone! I am super thrilled to announced that Celebrating Debutantes blog event is back. And this year we have one massive event for all of you.

To those who are not aware what Celebrating Debutantes is all about, this blog event is where we features here at Blackplume and Fragments of Life new authors and their debut novels. Last year event was a huge success. So Precious and I decided to have a run again, but instead of splitting the event into two parts we are doing one huge event instead.

We’ve lined up lots of features for everyone starting today, June 1st, 2017 to September 2017. Yes, you read it right! The event will run for more the three months! Which means more new authors and books to discover, and lots of interesting and exciting features for everyone. And of course tons of giveaways too.

We have many talented new authors on board this year with their fresh debut novels and we are really excited for everyone. We hope that this event will be a perfect venue for readers to find new literary discovery, and for new authors to showcase not only their first published work but also share a little about themselves to readers. Because who doesn’t want to get to know more about the genius behind the favorite book we love to read? I don’t about you, but for me, there’s a thrill in discovering great new authors for the very first time. It’s like finding a hidden gem and sharing it to fellow readers which gives me excitement.

In this years event, we will be featuring diverse set of debut young adult, new adult and middle grade novels — from fantasy, science-fiction, contemporary, romance, lgbt, mystery, thriller, retelling, historical, and many more. You will definitely find your new favorite from our list. So, without further ado, here’s our debutantes this year.
