Debut a Debut Spotlight


I’m sure you guys have already chosen your debut novels for the Debut a Debut contest, right? Just in case you haven’t, I wanted to point you to one that just came on my radar the other day.

My friend Janelle sent me the info, and I was immediately taken by the author’s name. It’s so great and lyrical; I wish I could trade names with her. Ready? Roopa Farooki, and her book is Bitter Sweets.

Using my link will take you to a UK edition, but there’s apparently a US edition that was released early this month.

The book looks neat: themes of deception and how they affect the ones we love. If it’s too late for you to get your hands on it now and have it read and reviewed for posting anytime between the 12th and 17th of this month, have no fear.

Ms. Roopa Farooki will be on our list of 2007 debut authors… yep, I think we’re gonna do this again. Stay tuned for more…
