2012 Debut Author Chapter 1 Excerpts

Excerpts are delicious little things, aren’t they? Just enough to get (or keep) you curious.

Here are five links to excerpts from 2012 debut authors:


The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls by Claire Legrand

I love the dedication in this one. It reads: For my sixth grade lunch table, who loved my scary stories.

After all the amazing things I’ve heard about it, I plan to greatly enjoy reading Something Like Normal by Trish Doller for myself.

You can find not one, not two, but three (geez!) chapters of Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff on I spent some time browsing around Kristoff’s website and his bio declares that he doesn’t believe in happy endings, so I shall be reading Stormdancer with one hand over my eyes.

Way to Go by Tom Ryan is a LGBT novel set in 1990s Canada; that’s not a setting you see everyday.

Published by Sourcebooks Fire, The Vicious Deep by Zoraida Cordova first chapter ends with a cliffhanger. You have been warned.
