As some of you might know, I have a real thing for debuts. I think that debuts are often an author’s best work, so I’m constantly on the look out for first novels, that pique my interest. A few weeks ago, as I was putting together my Winter Preview 2018, I noticed that I already had a lot of debuts in my 2018 reading list. They deserved some serious attention! So, the Winter Preview featured established authors, and today it’s all about DEBUTS!
