My first Six de los Reyes book was Just for the Record. My first Jay E. Tria book was Songs of Our Breakup. I still remember reading both books and thinking “Damn, I wish I wrote that.” And if you told me two years ago that I will help create a universe where Six and Jay’s characters existed and interacted with mine, I’d say “You’re crazy.”
By the time I hit Publish on this blog post, Summer Crush will have been two days old. It still feels pretty surreal that Six, Jay, and I were able to make it this far, and really, all we could tell ourselves the moment Jay uploaded the book on Amazon was “WE DID IT. WE REALLY DID IT!”
I have plenty more things to say, but that’s going to go on my “reflection paper” (Jay already posted hers, haha) which should be up in a few days. For now, I’m going to leave you with these:
**Please note that the free gift will be sent to you via email AFTER the blog tour in May. This is open to all readers around the world, so please let us know if you’ve bought the book so we can thank you with this little offering! <3
And here’s something fun Six, Jay, and I came up with–the Who’s Your Summer Crush? Quiz!
Comment below to let me know who you got? ^^
This is all for now–happy reading, and thank you so much in advance for your time!
Aaaand it’s heeeeere! ^_^ The collaborative project Six, Jay, and I have been working on now has its official ~face, thanks to the magic of Miles Tan (who was also my book cover designer for Waiting in the Wings)! Take a look! <3
Six de los Reyes, Tara Frejas, Jay E. Tria
Beach. Love. Rock and roll.
When life, love, and rock and roll come together on the sandy beaches of La Union for music festival Summer Crush, expect nothing less than the crashing of lips, bodies, and waves against the shore, against each other, and against your soul.
Allow these three tales of love to take you away for an unforgettable weekend.
Ana’s life as a corporate warrior, graduate student, and girlfriend to indie rock band boy Miki starts to spin out of control, and she wonders if it is love that has to give. (You Only Need Reminding, Jay E. Tria)
Newly reinstated EG Project roadie Filipina Legaspi flies with her band back to the Philippines for Summer Crush, unaware of the emotional waves that engulf her when she sets foot in the beaches of San Juan, La Union. (Almost There, Tara Frejas)
Rhys has three problems: Arabella, the theme song with the Trainguy, and singing live for the first time—and now also on that list is Isaiah, sea-sweet Mango Rum kisses, and long overdue decisions she’s intent on avoiding. (Ocean Eyes, Six de los Reyes)
I posted the above teaser back in January, while I was planning this special project with fellow authors Six de los Reyes and Jay E. Tria. Fast forward to a little less than two months later, and I am proud to say we have a complete manuscript in our hands. <3 I won’t go into detail yet about the crazy process we went through to be be able to release this collaboration because we’re not done yet (haha), but while you’re waiting (Are you waiting? We hope you are!), here are some teasers you may have missed.
Today's the first day of Waiting in the Wings' ARC Tour--YAY!--and I'd like to first and foremost thank everyone who has signed up for this. I am still anxious as hell (as I always am about new releases), but your support is very much appreciated.
Here's an excerpt from the book, plus a playlist you can listen to when you're finally reading it come the 21st. It's an all-OPM (Original Pilipino Music) lineup, so I might be posting some translations soon, for the benefit of those who don't know Filipino.
