Riverdale, NY – December 16, 2014 – Innovative hybrid publisher Riverdale Avenue Books has just published the winner of their first annual National Novel Writing Month Contest Untrustworthy, an LGBT science fiction thriller by Janet Gershen-Siegel.

“Untrustworthy is the perfect novel for Riverdale Avenue Books to publish with its cross genre elements of dystopian science fiction and gender politics. It’s a perfect fit for our company,” said Riverdale Avenue Books’ Publisher Lori Perkins. “I find is hard to believe that the author wrote this finely nuanced novel in a mere 30 days, but it’s amazing what NaNowWriMo can inspire.”

“I am over the moon with excitement and deeply honored to have won Riverdale Avenue Books' First Ever NaNoWriMo Contest,” said the new author. “Creative dreams should never be forgotten.”

NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) is an annual event that takes place in the month of November to encourage aspiring writers to begin the novel they have always wanted to write. Participants start writing their 50,000-word novel at midnight on November 1st and they have the whole month of November to complete it.
