January is the start of a new year and I'd like to use that as the theme for the challenge this month. It's all about new! I mean new to you, it does not matter when the book was published as long as it's new to you!

Finding your new:------
1. Author
2. Series
3. Character/Creature (eg Warlock, Dragon etc)
4. Location (I'll leave this open to interpretation - place/world/time?)
5. Chose one of genre (or sub-genre), publisher or free choice NEW.

Levels
Easy - 3 books - 1 each from categories 1,2 & 1 from 1 to 5
Medium - 5 books - 1 from each of categories 1 to 5 (see note***)
Hard - 10 books - 2 from each from categories 1 & 2, 1 each from categories 3 to 5, plus 3 more.

***You can substitute one of 3,4 or 5 for a second new author.

The how to......

***Please update your original post (see the participants list for easy finding) as you go along, you can post a finished post at the end too!!!***

Please post the level you want to attempt and come back to that post to update us all, you can do a finished post later too! The participants thread has a link to everyone's initial post.

We're keeping it simple here, use your judgement and given the nature of our group keep mostly in the PNR/UF genres, your interpretation of it that is :-) (max 1 out of 3 from others though please!)
