Saturday Spotlight: Debut Author Challenge 2011

Being a complete donut I did not fully understand the Debut Challenge at The Story Siren for 2010 *doh* but after nearly a year of blogging and chatting to some truly awesome people it all started to click together.
Plus Kristi made a really clear and concise post for the 2011 Challenge that even I can follow [ : D ] The only problem I am having is deciding which book I am going to limit myself to. OMG there are so many fantastic books how on earth am I going to choose.
