We are on a countdown to Christmas day and there are only a couple of days left before the beginning of a very well needed break after this year’s last term. Now it is the time to remember all the good, to be thankful for it and to collect these moments, to keep them in our life album and to never forget them. For me, 2017 has been a year of reuniting with old friends and with friends that I though I’d lost, but we are back together, and we are stronger and better than ever. Life has given me a second chance and I’m not going to waste it, because as time goes by you realize your appreciation for the others keeps increasing and you become more selective with people you choose to be around you. Hence why having back one of my bestest friends and having new ones is great as it is having those who have been here for a long time and those whom we have shared loads of moments, so there are several reasons to define this year 2017 as the Friendship Year. As in Care SantosMEDIA VIDA, awarded with the Nadal award at the begging of the year, past memories and old friendships always come back, for the good or for the bad.

2017 has also been a year of self-improvement and personal growth, and because of books as Eva Sandoval’s TU PODER NINJA, I’ve been able to think and understand more easily that there is no need to fight to reach your dream. It’s also been a year full of knowledge, of searching and finding, and with Francesc Miralles’ and Héctor García’s IKIGAI, I’ve discovered what makes me move with more determination in this world. And in these pleasing reading moments I’ve had the company of amazing characters as Guille and Amalia, created by Alejandro Palomas to enter our lives and never leave, or Rebeca, Barbara Alves’ novel main character, whom I’ve laughed my head out with the company of a Nutella bottle on my bedside table. And many other vibrant novels by authors such as Paz Castelló, Susana Rodríguez Lezaun, Núria Pradas, Esther Sanz, Gabriel García Oro, Carmen Conde , Xulio Ricardo Trigo or Sílvia Tarragó who have made of this year a year full of good readings with elements I will for ever keep in my memory box all together with my memories of 2017, with a huge smile, because books are our journey partners in each and every sense, and I feel lucky to be surrounded by these wonderful gifts.

My suggestion is to fill this Christmas with books, they are not only one of the best presents we can give, because reading is living, understanding, educating, enjoying, thinking and having fun. So I add here the best catalogue so that you can pick a book for every loved one, they will be hugely thankful, for sure.

Merry Christmas and a Wonderful 2018 for all of us.

The New Year has already begun; we already have it here, brand new. So first of all I’d like to wish you all a wonderful 2017, full of smiles, dreams, great moments and wonderful reads. It’s that time of the year when we all set new goals and think about things we’d love to do but, at the end of the day, we never manage to accomplish. Lots of us are already stressed out just thinking about all the things we need to do, and this year has just started! That’s why my goal is to believe in what I do and live one day at a time, step by step, to avoid this stress that leads us to nowhere. Keep calm.

This advice should be followed by the main character of the first book I want to recommend you today, which we’ll have out in the market by the end of this month, 25th of January. RESPIRA, REBECCA, RESPIRA… by Bárbara Alves, is a realist and sarcastic novel about the life of a woman who is curvy, married and has three kids. She tries to do everything on her own and is not afraid of fighting for what she wants. Sometimes, she gets a little crazy, like all of us, because daily life can be too much for anyone. A novel that manages to make you smile in every page, and which fans of Marian Keyes, Maitena or Bridget Jones will absolutely love. And, for those of you who haven’t read any of these authors, I ask of you to give a chance to Rebecca, because you’re going to fall head over heels in love with her, I’m sure of that.

One of the things that I love most about my job is being able to find new voices and get them to be published. This has happened with Bárbara, the author of this novel, who has captivated me as much as her protagonist and it’s very exciting for me to start this adventure by her side. I hope you’re going to help us make her a great author. It’s never easy to make people laugh, in any job, and humor in the publishing world is one of the most complicated genres. Only foreign authors have triumphed, but now, we can turn into a reality the success of a born-and-bred Spanish voice, real and captivating. We’re going to cover 2017 with smiles. ¿Are you in?

Today is the last blog of the year. It ends 2016, a year that has had many things, good and bad ones, but I stick to the good ones. We should always do so, keep the best. It has been a year of changes, which sometimes need time, but for the agency, it has been a positive year; with several books that have stood out with many sales abroad, even more than in their own language, with several bestsellers authors in our catalogues and with important prizes. What else can we ask for?

For me, it has been a year of learning, which is what I value the most. Because learning from mistakes, from good and bad things, is what makes you grow, because it makes you think, stop and reflect. So I say goodbye to 2016 with a kiss, and I’m waiting for 2017 with open arms to continue walking and learning, alongside those who want to stay to our side, betting on good stories, and fighting to make our world a better world; where the smile is a flag, and being able to be happy with what we do, our way of living.

So I put my heart in happiness mode and, I wish the same to all of you for this 2017, which will be full of good things. Merry Christmas and a wonderful 2017. If one wants to, one can.
