NEW YEAR, NEW LIFE
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?
