Montreal - Amateurs of soap operas, reality shows and reading, the literary project of Anic Bourgault and Kadia Desautels, Val et Zoé, will know how to charm you.

The two authors of Val and Zoé were inspired by the concept of Marie Laberge, Martha to create their literary project in the form of letters. “I myself subscribe to Martha's News. Marie Laberge is one of my favorite authors and I find her idea brilliant. I think that the epistolary form deserves to be exploited more and that is why our literary project takes this form ”, explained Anic Bourgault. However, the authors have developed a slightly different concept where they each have their place.

Val and Zoe are two friends who lost sight of each other after college and reunite 14 years later. This reunion brings out all the friendship that united them. Geographically separated, they decide to maintain their friendly relationship by writing letters. They tell each other what has become of them since graduating from university. It only takes a few letters for them to regain their former bond.

Even if the universe of Val and Zoe is purely fictitious, readers will easily recognize each other since the letters will address current themes such as the blended family, work-family balance, the joys of being a parent, bereavement and depression.

By subscribing to Val et Zoé, you will receive two letters per month at home, for a total of 24 per year. The first mailing will be mailed at the beginning of September 2010. In addition, the concept should be renewed for a minimum period of three years.

Anic Bourgault, notary and tax specialist specializing in consumption taxes, and Kadia Desautels, holder of a bachelor's degree in law, are not writers in the proper sense. However, they spend most of their time writing.

“Writing aside, we have a great desire to offer more to our subscribers, but it's a surprise our readers will find out along the way. All that remains is to convince people to trust us and to subscribe in large numbers, ”concluded Ms. Bourgault.
