This will be the twelfth year for this challenge.

I'll post the rules now and you can put your releases here once it's December 1 where you are. :)

The D for December challenge will run 12/1 to 12/31 your time.

1) Books must be released during the period from December 1 to December 31. No need to sign up - join in at any time!

2) The challenge is to release books that have a the letter "D" beginning a word in the main title OR the author's name.

* Dean Koontz, John D. Rockfeller, Max von der Grün, and Charles Dickens will all count. Scott O'Dell won't, sorry.

* Main title means anything before the colon but not afterwards. For example, _Ice Bound: A Doctor's Incredible Battle For Survival at the South Pole_ doesn't count.

* Series names don't count unless they're part of the actual book title, so _Tea Time for the Traditionally Built_, while part of the No. 1 Ladies' Dectective Agency Series, wouldn't count..but the first book in the series is actually *titled* _The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency_ so it would be fine.

3) Any type of release counts: wild releases, charity releases, controlled releases, books left at OBCZs or LFLs, sent out as rings/rays, books in bookboxes, etc.

4) Nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, proper nouns, and pronouns in any language count.

* Only the first letter of an acronym/initialism counts- as in D.A.R.E. but not M.A.D.D.

* Articles don't count- - for instance, if the word "the" begins with the letter D in your language, it doesn't qualify. (Besides, you should release those for The "The The" challenge in November!)

* Numbers work if they're spelled out in letters ("dozen" rather than "12"; "dos" or "deux" instead of "2").

* If by chance your title includes a Roman numeral beginning with D (between 500 & 899), then it would count. (See acronyms/initialisms above).

* If your language doesn't use the same sort of characters as English, it should be a word that begins with the same sound as the letter D in English (in other words, it would be transliterated into a D in for English speakers). I'll have to take your word for it at least 99 and 44/100% of the time, so please play fair! ;)

5) Multi-challenge releases are perfectly fine, and even encouraged (because they're more fun).

6) Post catches here if you wish. They're always fun to see.

If you have questions, just ask. :)

I seem to recall that early on some people used characters like that for some kind of sorting function on their shelves. I don’t know how it was supposed to work but it looks like that might be what happened with this book.
