Congratulations NaNoWriMo 2011!

At last, this crazy marathon writing experience has come to its final chapter. Was your mission accomplished? Did you scribble your 50,000th word at 11:59 p.m. last night?

Even if you didn't quite finish- be proud- you have exhibited a feat of willpower and creativity that few people will ever experience. (And don't forget, you'll always have another chance next year.)

As a big thank you to all our writers, we want to invite all our community members to participate in the epilogue to NaNoWriMo 2011: "A Novel Competition".

When: December 1st through December 8th.

Where: The comments section of this post

What to do: Submit a brief plot summary or “book jacket copy” about their novel, maximum 250 words, in this contest entry's comments.

Who wins: LJ Editors will select the top five finalists from the entries. Guest judge Mark Coker (you may remember Mark from his recent LJ interview) from Smashwords will choose one grand prize winner from the finalist pool.


1 Grand Prize winner
Amazon Kindle
Blurb.com $20 gift certificate

4 Finalists prizes
Blurb.com $20 gift certificate

(Blurb.com is a website where authors can publish hardcover or paper copies of their books.)

For some, the anticipation of this contest might feel like Waiting for Godot. For others, these words could be no more than "a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing" but a chance to win some prizes. Either way, we look forward to reading your submissions! Good luck, writers!

Conspiracy's Doorstep
Zy’Lin and Zy’Soln were twins living a comfortable, but obscure existence as the adoptive children of Anzel and Etta Eiger. That is until they were framed for the murder of the Eiger’s daughter, Ashla. Chased across space by the authorities, they went in search of information that would clear their names. Along the way they found themselves wanted not only for their perceived crime, but for their powerful psychic powers. Now they must search out the elusive and all-powerful group known as The Syndicate in order to clear themselves and find out about their mysterious origins. Assistance comes in the form of family members they never knew existed, and Griel Marsil, an unwitting officer of the Protectorate who wants to use the twins’ powers for good. Misfortune and pain plague the twins on their journey, but together they find they can overcome the worst evil the universe has ever known; God.
