Meet The Newbies Kick-Off - #MeetTheNewbs



Welcome to Meet The Newbies!


Or #MeetTheNewbs as we have nicknamed it.


Ahhhhh!!! We cannot be more excited to finally be kicking this event off. Dana and I have been planning this whole things since last August. When we first started co-blogging, one of our goals was to plan a large blog event together. Tons of emails, Dms, and Google+ Hangouts later; we can finally announce what we have been up to for months. I don't even know how we were able to keep this all under wraps for so long.


Dana and I were amazed at all of the amazing 2015 debuts and we wanted to celebrate all of the debut authors. We imagined being a debut author must be like being the new kid in school, full of excitement and nerves. That is why Meet The Newbies is school themed.


What You Can Expect From Meet The Newbies?
  • Guest Posts, Interviews, and Ice Breakers on both of our blogs every week for the next three months. It will be our summer of debuts. We will still have reviews and our regular memes going up. There will be around two-three posts on both of our blogs every week.
  • Giveaways Galore! There will be giveaways in the posts kindly offered from all of the amazing authors and publishers as well as giveaways hosted by Dana and myself. We will be giving away almost all of our 2015 debut arcs so you can have the chance to read these amazing books too.
  • Twitter Chats!! We love how active the 2015 debuts are on twitter, so we knew we had to have a twitter chat. BUT, we decided that one twitter chat was not enough. Since this event will be three months it was only fitting to have three twitter chats on different days of the week and at different times. We wanted to accommodate as many authors and readers as possible. I made some really great info graphics below for each twitter chat. We will be sharing them every month.

TWITTER CHAT DATES!
We will be using #MTN2015 since it is shorter. The chats will feature Ice Breakers, Q&A's, and Giveaways.


May 22nd @ 8pm EST
June 20th @ 4pm EST
July 24th @ 9pm EST
 

Finally, we would like to thank every author who has said yes to participating. They have all been so enthusiastic and we couldn't be more grateful. We are extremely excited to kick off the next three months of Meet The Newbies. We hope you are excited for all of the shenanigans we have planned.


To start things off, we have a giveaway!
