Reviewing the proof of the new edition of my first book (published in 2009) -- the most obvious change being the cover which now features a photo of people. Filipinos represented on romance covers. ❤️ #romanceclass #romantsy #filipinoauthors

The Thief | Megan Whalen Turner
post image

Attended local bookish event #BookwormsUnitePH and got to take these home! I've read The Thief but it's time for a re-read?

Chachic While I'm glad you got The Thief, I'm sad that someone gave it up? Haha. Sign yan for a series reread so you can read the latest installment. 3y

Say That Things Change | Mina V. Esguerra, Jhing Bautista, Jonnalyn Cabigting, Leng de Chavez, Katherine C. Eustaquio-Derla, Rachelle Belaro, Rayne Mariano
post image

Hey Stranger by Leng de Chavez isn't on Litsy and it's in Taglish (Tagalog+English) so I don't know if it ever will be, but am sharing here anyway. "Chat stories" are showing up more and more in bookstores and once you warm up to the idea of these two people just sending texts, other things about this format can be appreciated. Like distinct dialogue, using limited POV as a device, how to describe without seeing. Leng scores on so many things.

Kitchen When It Sizzles | Chrissie Peria
post image

My writing community in the Philippines, #romanceclass, holds live readings of romance books by #filipinoauthors. A few days ago was the first time we had a reading of the ~sexy stuff. I choose the excerpts and usually give notes to the actors, and this was the only note for this part. Because it had to land just right.

Under the Sugar Sun | Jennifer Hallock

Loved Jennifer Hallock's micro-history lecture at Ayala Museum, how it weaved moments in Philippine history as a US colony into her character studies for historical romance. One of my favorite characters showed up in her slides with the face of Piolo Pascual and I nearly lost it hahaha.

Chachic Makaka-relate din ako dyan sa Piolo slide soon. Hahaha. 3y

Adored this book. It's not in bookstores in the Philippines so I ordered from Book Depository. I might just have the only print copy in this country and I have mixed feelings about it. Books we love should be easy to get... #diversereads #YA
