Start Here: Short Stories of First Encounters
Start Here: Short Stories of First Encounters | Brigitte Bautista, Katt Briones, Bobbi Moran
9 posts | 1 read | 4 to read
There's a first time for everything. Gatecrashing a KPop concert with an oppa in a business suit. Taking shelter from the storm with the girl you've been meaning to shake off. That kiss that blurs the line between friendship and something more. A one-night stand (or, is it?) with your best friend from across the hallway. Dive into these 10 stories of first encounters - unapologetically queer, happy endings required, with a smattering of that signature #romanceclass kilig. Whether you're recalling your own firsts or out there looking for one, there's a story in here for you. So, go on. Turn the page. Start here. (Edited by Ronald S. Lim and Brigitte Bautista. Featuring short stories by Agay Llanera, H. Bentham, Ella Banta, Danice Sison, Yeyet Soriano, Barbie Barbieto, Katt Briones, Bobbi Moran, Motzie Dapul, and Brigitte Bautista. This anthology contains M/M, F/F, F/NB romance stories with happy endings. Some stories have a high heat level.)

I found a table and a sweet spot in the house to set-up bookstagrams! Haha!

This is a practice shot with Mew and all my books. *I used tiny cover print outs for the other books and i used my little sister‘s phone to take this bec my own phone is Kindle. 😂Hehehe.

Check out Amazon/my GoodReads page for info on all these books!

Happy launch week to Start Here, the latest #romanceclass anthology featuring male/male, female/female, and female/non-binary short stories.🙌 Today's the last day that it's available for 1.99usd. Congrats, editors and authors! Looking forward to reading these stories, particularly Lemon Drop Friday by Brij Bautista and The Other Story by @bentchbites, which we all got snippets of during last Saturday's #FeelsSoProm live readings.
