Hello to all! This project has as main objective the publication of my first novel, The secret of the millennia, that I wrote between the 14 and the 18 years.

In the video of the project narrates the synopsis of the book, but the summary here just in case.

Synopsis

Daniel, Evelyn and Miguel are three friends who live their daily routine in stifling Havana. A series of unexpected events compel them to travel to another world, where they will encounter riddles and mysteries that, for centuries, have fascinated humanity. The clock counts and the young people will have to decipher the existing relationship between both worlds and discover an incredible secret. Only then, before it is too late, can they save themselves and everything they know.

Who I am

My name is Glauber Adrián Senarega Vázquez. I am a 20 year old Cuban writer and I am currently studying the Arts and Humanities degree at the Russian University of the Friendship of Peoples in Moscow. Since I was little I like to tell stories and at age 17 I was chosen for the annual course of the prestigious Onelio Jorge Cardoso Literary Training Center ** in Havana, where I graduated as one of the youngest participants.
At the age of 14 I began to write my novel *** The secret of the millennia *** and since then, my dream has been to publish it so that many more can enter these worlds with Daniel, Evelyn and Miguel.

Now I am about to fulfill that longing, with your help. The publication of *** The secret of the millennia *** is almost a reality. I could hardly believe it when that great Cuban writer who is ** Amir Valle ** agreed to write the prologue. And what a prologue! I reproduce some fragments below:

 *** "The secret of the millennia ***" is a novel that possesses effluvia of that subjugating majesty of books like Tolkien's Lord of the Rings or The Endless Story by Michael Ende, just to mention two of them. But it also has that set of mirrors that goes from humor to tragedy, from risible to terrible, from meekness to rebellion, present in any of the works of the saga written by JK Rowling in creating his already unforgettable * Harry Potter * It also has that historicist touch - subtly blended between the mythical and the scientific - of books that seriously address deciphered or unanswered events that have become universal myths: ancient civilizations on earth, contacts with beings from other planets, disappeared cultures and ancestral religions or who have survived human intolerances.And even that intrigue that masters of fantastic literature, science fiction or the black novel have led to levels of astonishing and seductive effectiveness. And all this in an amalgam so well assimilated, so carefully structured, with a drama as natural as if it came out of life itself, and with characters of such exquisite configuration, both psychologically and discursively, that history acquires this existence own, that independence, that originality that typifies the best works of the genre. "

"Despite being a first novel, any reader will find in these pages talent, maturity and delivery to the craft of literature. *** The secret of the millennia *** is a novel that contributes much to the genre in Cuba, which stands out for its originality, which moves through worlds not explored by the current fantastic literature and science fiction in Cuba and marks a debut of excellence of a writer, ** Glauber A. Senarega **, whose name we will hear a lot in the future of the Cuban letters and the Spanish language "

#12 / ¡Recompensas enviadas!

Amigos,
Ya hemos ido enviando El secreto de los milenios y las demás recompensas a la mayoría de ustedes, exceptuando a aquellos a los que se lo entregaremos personalmente y a los que no han hecho llegar aún su dirección postal.
Hace pocos días hicimos también la primera presentación pública en el Club de Español de Moscú.
Por otro lado, ya el libro está a la venta en internet y en varias librerías, pero sin publicidad se hace difícil que llegue a muchas personas, así que les agradeceremos mucho cualquier promoción que puedan hacerle.
Les presentamos la web que hemos preparado, esperamos que les guste y nos comenten.
