How to Meet-Cute: a #romanceclass Pop-up Event

Meet-cute.

You know the drill. Romantic lead meets love interest for the first time. Maybe it’s awkward, maybe they hit it off right away. Maybe it’s a total disaster. Whatever it is, a meet-cute happens when a future romantic couple meets for the first time. It sets tone and expectation for the readers, and is often one of the most memorable scenes in a romance novel or a rom-com.

Do you want to know what makes a meet-cute work? Join us on July 14 as we have an entire discussion about meet-cutes, led by actors Gio Gahol, Gracielle So, and Sam Aquino, using scenes from manuscripts by #romanceclass authors Carla de Guzman, Ines Bautista-Yao, Six de los Reyes, Chi Yu Rodriguez, C.P. Santi, Clare Elisabeth Marquez, and Brigitte Bautista.

To join the discussion from 2-4pm, you need to purchase a book from the selection available at the venue on the day of the event. Snacks are included. ^_^

Book and merch selling happens after 4pm.

Hope to see you there! <3

Anywayyyyy… that’s not the point. The point is this: WE HAVE A NEW BOOK COMING OUT THIS MAY!!!

COVER REVEAL: Scandalized 2.0

Can you believe it’s already April? *insert shocked emoji here* I mean, where did the first quarter of the year go?

For sure, I was busy with work mostly, adjusting to the new hours and learning a lot of new stuff. I honestly haven’t created a dent in my writing schedule just yet, but I’m happy to tell you that I’m…trying. Haha. And while I haven’t yet been cranking out as many words as I wanted, let me show you something really pretty first.

Presenting, the new cover of Scandalized:

Of Dreams and Then Some

CCP facade

Dear Tara,

Do you remember when, as a high school senior/college freshman, you would spend afternoons with Ceejay and Macri doing research for the play you were writing at the CCP Library? Do you remember getting library cards (so you could borrow some material, I guess) after coming back so many times?

(Let’s also not forget hanging out at the CCP Cafeteria just so you could catch a glimpse of the Miss Saigon cast during their break. Because hard work deserved some reward, yes?)

Yeah, I figured you would.
