GIVEAWAY: Classified by Georgette S. Gonzales

Time for another giveaway, folks! This time, I’m very proud to introduce this crime novella by Filipino author and good friend, Georgette S. Gonzales. Classified is one of the sixteen new crime fiction books launched last June 25 at The Study by Enderun at The Podium. Here’s what it’s all about:


Danilo Halili was not an investigative journalist. He was simply a photographer who accompanied the publication’s news reporter to cover the city-wide festivities held in that town in Quezon. But his curiosity was piqued when he overheard something he was not supposed to hear. And we all know what they say about curiosity killing the cat…

Available on Amazon

[ CLOSED ] GIVEAWAY: The Byebye Bouquet by Chi Yu Rodriguez

[ UPDATE: March 26, 2016 ]


 * * *

It’s always fun to champion indie reads, especially when they are written by Filipino authors (who are also your friends). Last Valentine’s Day, my friend Chi Yu Rodriguez released her debut romance novella, The ByeBye Bouquet, and I couldn’t be prouder. <3 Check it out below:


Every month for the past year, like clockwork, Meile Simon has gotten orders at her shop for the same type of bouquet, from the same guy, delivered to twelve different girls. By the third month, she starts to take note.

Warren Leigh likes women. He does. He knows there are too many beautiful women out there just waiting to be plucked by the right guy. But he firmly believes that personal relationships with them must have an expiration date.

When the girl who likes to watch flowers bloom encounters the guy who’s only in it while the fragrance lasts, curiosity gets the best of both of them.

In the midst of intermittent weather, will their connection blossom or wilt?

Available on Amazon and Buqo
