Congrats to Taiwanese American writer Jennifer K. Chung who is the grand prize winner of the 3-Day Novel Contest! In addition to being a writer, she is a pianist and software engineer. She grew up in Southern California
and studied computer science at MIT in Cambridge, MA. In her spare time, Jennifer plays keyboard in a goth metal band and studies the Japanese martial art of Naginata. She lives near Seattle.
The 3-Day Novel Contest demands that writers all over the world produce an entire novel in 72 short hours. The winning author gets instant fame—and publication by 3-Day Books. Over the contest’s 34 years, it has been called a fad, a threat and the “deformed left foot of the literary world.” But all who try it agree: it is one heck
of a creative kick in the pants.
Jennifer’s winning entry was titled, TERRORYAKI!
About the book:
It’s three months until the wedding, and Samantha’s Taiwanese parents won’t warm up to her hopelessly white fiancé. Meanwhile, Sam’s food-obsessed sister, Daisy, is on the hunt for an otherworldly take-out truck whose dishes are to die for. Terroryaki! is a quirky story of love, family, redemption and the best—if slightly cursed—chicken teriyaki to be found in this realm of existence.
It will be released by 3-Day Books this September. If you think you have what it takes, keep in mind the next contest takes place September, 3-5, 2011.
