Meet the Newbies: Yearbook

Meet the Newbies is a blog event dedicated to introducing you to the “newbie” published debut authors. In this event, expect to learn more about the authors, their books, and silly fun facts! Check out the full Meet the Newbies lineup here.

This is my second year of the Meet the Newbies debut author event, and I love coordinating and planning the event. My heart swells when I see people read the posts and see how excited both the authors and readers are about the books and the event. I thought I'd close this year's event with something fun!

A 3-month long event. 91 authors hosted over 18 blogs. And to finish... a Meet the Newbies yearbook!

  1. BEST Superlatives EVER! This was awesome! So much hard work had to have gone into this, and I want to say thanks for it. It was an amazing event, and I look forward to 2017!

  2. OMG. :D :D :D This is so great! I love these! It's neat to see the age difference in some of these authors - you can tell by the yearbook photo quality/style and the hairdos. LOVE. <3 Kathy's superlative is spot-on! She is one of the most organized authors I know. Also, Jeff Garvin, how you doin'? *says in Joey Tribbiani voice* :)

    Lovely post, Rachel!
