Celebrating Debutantes 2014: Thank You + 2015 Debuts

Our debutantes celebration might have ended (for now, at least) but I sure had a lot of fun and learned a lot of cool things from our dear featured authors. When I look back to everything that happened not only this year but also from the past two years, I feel an overwhelming pang. I met a lot of sweet and amazing people. I cannot wait for the following years to come to meet more of you!

For 2015 debut authors:
I am going to personally email and invite debut authors of 2015 two or three months before the event (event will be probably on December or November, we never know). If you want to be part of CD2015 and be sure that you'll have a slot in case I missed emailing you, you can sign up in this FORM.

I am also accepting review requests if you're interested in sending me an ARC or finished copy of your book. I would prefer a print copy if possible. If you can't provide a print copy, shoot me an email and we'll see what I can do. Note: I'm from the Philippines. Please be reminded of my review policy as well, including the genres I read. I am not sure if Dianne of Oops! I Read A Book Again will join me this year for CD but if she does and also interested in accepting review requests as well, we'll probably share the book you're gonna send. Except if you're sending us both print or ecopy.

Celebrating Debutantes requirements:
- You must be a debut author of 2015. Your first book to publish, indie or traditional.
- Your book must be YA/NA/MG fiction to be featured in CD. For review purposes: I don't accept MG, except if your book is on my to-read list.
- Giveaways aren't required, but highly appreciated.
- You must be awesome. I know you all are. ;)



  1. So many good books coming out this year, I seriously can't handle it. *hugs* here's to more years of blogging and tweeting with you. :)

  2. So many amazing debut books coming out this year!! I'm so excited for so many of them!

  3. Excellent list - so many I can't wait to read! Am also so, SO excited about THE DEAD HOUSE by Dawn Kurtagich, coming out in August. It's a psychological horror, and it is going to be epic!
