¡12 novelas escritas para Nanowrimo que fueron publicadas!

Me ha dado muchísimo gusto ver el nivel de aceptación que ha tenido la propuesta entre los miembros de la comunidad de LST. Como les dije en el primer post, no se arrepentirán de participar. Son muchos los aspectos positivos que tiene formar parte de esta actividad anual, uno de ellos es la creación de un trabajo aspirante a ser publicado por una editorial o uno que pueda ser lanzado como autopublicación. 

A continuación les presento 12 novelas que se escribieron durante el evento Nanowrimo y que posteriormente se publicaron bajo un sello editorial.

Probablemente ya leíste algunas de ellas y no sabías en dónde nacieron ;)

El circo llega sin avisar. No viene precedido de ningún anuncio, no se cuelga cartel alguno en los postes o vallas publicitarias del centro, ni tampoco aparecen notas ni menciones en los periódicos locales. Sencillamente está ahí, en un sitio en el que ayer no había nada. Abre sólo de noche y no es un circo cualquiera…Le Cirque des Rêves, pues ése es su nombre, es en realidad el escenario de una feroz competición: un terrible duelo entre dos jóvenes magos, Celia y Marco, entrenados desde pequeños para este propósito; un desafío que sus entrenadores llevan preparando desde hace años. Lo que no saben, y pronto descubrirán, es que éste es un juego mortal en el que sólo puede haber un vencedor. Un precio muy alto para dos jóvenes que acaban de descubrir el amor, un amor mágico y profundo que ilumina todo lo que tocan. Pero la partida debe continuar, y Marco y Celia sólo podrán confi ar en el destino…«Encantadoramente perfecta... leer esta novela es como tener un sueño maravilloso.» Newsday «Una lectura mágica.» Library Journal «Fascinante y absolutamente encantadora.» Danielle Trussoni

Erin can never remember anything about these episodes, and she’s grateful to have been spared them for a while.

But when a protective friend comes back into Erin’s life, he insists that Shevaun is a vampire who actually exists apart from Erin. Shevaun has dangerous allies, like the handsome witch Adjila—and they’re determined to sever Shevaun’s connection to Erin once and for all.

 Blog: an online diary.

My Blog: How I got over the worst, most humiliating breakup in web-recorded history–and became
stronger, smarter, and better off without the biggest Loser on the face of the earth.

Life is sweet for Rachel. She’s living with her boyfriend of two years in Seattle and is starting a new high-paying job at the same snazzy computer company where he works. Then Rachel’s system crashes. Her supposedly adoring almost-fiancé cheats on her, lies to her, dumps her, and hooks up with someone else–specifically, her own boss’s boss’s boss. Talk about tacky.

Heartbroken, beyond depressed, and stuck in nine-to-five hell, Rachel follows a recovery regimen that features an arsenal of meds (including General Celexa: "the holy pink pill"), deliciously detailed daily entries in her newly inaugurated weblog Breakup Babe, and a string of dates–from the irresistibly bad Little Rockclimbing Spy, who proves to be full of surprises, to the high-flying ladies man Sexy Boy, who loves weed almost as much as he loves women.

With her shoulder-perched alter egos Sensible Girl and Needy Girl vying for her sanity, and a growing legion of supportive online fans threatening to snap her out of her grand funk, Rachel somehow survives, thrives, and discovers just how risky and liberating love, loss, and blogging can be.

Sex, drugs, and quantum physics collide with artificial intelligence, faith and free will in this perspective-altering story. The memo said they'd get bonuses for submitting patents, so why not? Money came easily during the dot-com boom. Concealed in engineering jargon, Ryan McNear submits a patent for the soul disguised as a software algorithm and his best friend Foster Reed rewrites Genesis and calls it a "power generator." A few years later, amid the fallout of a ruptured technology bubble, his career ruined and family shredded, a desperate Ryan discovers that a company headed by his old friend Foster is developing his patent. What he thought was a joke is generating stacks of money amid claims that it will provide a source of limitless energy and prove the existence of God. Willing to try anything to rebuild his life, Ryan stakes a legal claim to the patent. He soon discovers a sinister undercurrent in the venture. Racing against time and aided by a motley group of assistants that includes an attorney/conman, a beautiful and passionate physicist and a death-obsessed adolescent math prodigy, Ryan gets caught in a battle between hard science and fundamentalist religion that threatens his sanity, his freedom and his son. Before long Ryan will test the limits of faith and free will, evaluate the nature of desire, and comprehend the human soul in a way that requires a single step, rather than a great leap, of faith.

Shades of Milk and Honey is an intimate portrait of Jane Ellsworth, a woman ahead of her time in a version of Regency England where the manipulation of glamour is considered an essential skill for a lady of quality. But despite the prevalence of magic in everyday life, other aspects of Dorchester’s society are not that different: Jane and her sister Melody’s lives still revolve around vying for the attentions of eligible men.

Jane resists this fate, and rightly so: while her skill with glamour is remarkable, it is her sister who is fair of face, and therefore wins the lion’s share of the attention. At the ripe old age of twenty-eight, Jane has resigned herself to being invisible forever. But when her family’s honor is threatened, she finds that she must push her skills to the limit in order to set things right–and, in the process, accidentally wanders into a love story of her own.

Olivia Bean knows trivia. She watches Jeopardy! every night and usually beats at least one of the contestants. If she were better at geography, she would try out for the show’s kids’ week.

One day Olivia’s friend-turned-nemesis, Tucker, offers to help her bulk up her geography knowledge. Before Olivia knows it, she’s getting help from all sorts of unexpected sources: her almost-stepdad, superannoying Neil; her genius little brother, Charlie; even her stressed-out mom. Soon she has breezed through the audition rounds and is headed for Hollywood! But will the one person she wants to impress more than anyone else show up to support her?
