Congratulations Nanowrimo and YWP finalists!

It is a stunning achievement to set an aggressive goal and to have the discipline and fortitude to achieve it. That is what the finalists of Nanowrimo (the National Novel Writing Month contest) which challenges authors to write 50,000 words towards a new and original novel, and YWP (the Young Writer's Program contest), who set their own age appropriate goal, found out this November.

To all of those who crossed the finish line, please accept our heart-filled congratulations. As a repeat finalist, I know the great satisfaction and elation that you feel now that the pressure is finally off. I also know how exhausted you must be. At Last Quarter of the Moon, we honor your commitment and drive. And so for Nano and YWP finalists, we have a special offer just for you.

Return of the Dragon Knights
debut novel by Alex D.K. Courter

We are pleased to announce an exciting innaugural lineup. We kicked off our first publication earlier this summer with the release of the Young Adult Fantasy novel, Return of the Dragon Knights, the debut by teen author, Alex D.K. Courter. The staff at Last Quarter of the Moon would like to join the author in thanking the fans who made his first book such a success.

And that was just the beginning. The summer swelter kept us indoors, and that meant more time behind the keyboard! We have three novels and two short stories slated for publication heading into the new year. Each book expands the variety and depth of our body of work. Whether you are into fantasy, suspense, horror, comedy, or a feel good novel, we have a veritable cornucopia in the works for your reading pleasure.

debut novel by Michael Courter

Our second novel, the suspense thriller, Have You Seen Her? hit the "stands" on July 25th. Another debut novel, this time of publisher and editor-in-chief, Michael Courter, Have You Seen Her? begs the question: How far would you be willing to go to save the one you love?

We have decided to do something truly 'novel' with Have You Seen Her? The text will be released simultaneously both serially and in its entirety as an ebook. We are extremely excited about this prospect and couldn't be more thrilled. Each week, starting with its launch, a new chapter will be revealed here on this site--for a limited time.
