Hello and Welcome!

Red House Books is going through a bit of a update!

I've always had a pretty clear vision of what I wanted this space to be but I've been detoured from my path by...lots and lost of other people's opinions and ways of doing things...

I'm committed to this little chunk of the interweb but I've also branched out into other places so! Now it's time to think of Red House Books as more of a hub of all things me! And Me is a hell of a lot of book love!

Stay tuned!

2010 Debut Author Information



So many great debut authors this year!
Here you will find my feeble attempt at organizing and listing 2010 debut authors of middle grad (MG) and young adult (YA) books.

Information has been gathered from a variety of sources including but not limited to:
2010: A Book Odyssey
Authors Now!
Class of 2K10
Various publisher and author websites

This post will be updated monthly
LAST UPDATE: May 4, 2010

Are you a debut author of a MG or YA book? Have I missed you? Commence the throwing of rotten fruit! Or...you can leave me a comment or send me an email and I'll get your info added.
Readers, do you see any debut authors I have missed? Let me know! (and if you really want, you can throw rotten fruit too :)

Have to say it -- I'm doing this purely for fun for the benefit of myself and my readers. Why? Because books are awesome and I love them! I'm also using this post as a way to update books I have read over the year. Any reviews I've posted could be found by using my search box.

So many great books!
