commissionwork2 #romanceclasscovers shoot day love songs: waiting in the wings

Is it summer yet?

summer crush teaser

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.

ARC Tour | Waiting in the Wings

WITW-tourbanner

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.

But first: QUICK LINKS!

#RomanceClass x Ayala Museum: A GIF + Video Post

First things first: Please DO NOT expect much coherence from this post. I know, I know. I’m a writer… I should at least manage to string together some decent words, yes? But Too Many Feelings and Too Few Hours of Sleep can do things to the brain, so… anyway.

February 11 was another day of firsts for #romanceclass. Let me enumerate them:

  • First time holding an event at the Ayala Museum
  • First time having six actors live read scenes from our books
  • First time having a How to Write a Romance Novel lecture read by the live readers
  • First time having a three-way live reading
  • First time having Vanya Castor as a live reader

Did I miss anything?

I probably did.

So yeah, anyway… we did a lot of other stuff before the live reading. That included book and merch selling, eating FREE cookies (thanks, Abbie! :D), browsing new books at the Book Cafe (thanks Caryn! :D), finding book blind dates, and playing games. To be honest, I only had two hours of sleep prior to the event, but the energy in the room (where it happened) kept me going.

Blog Tour / Interview | Keep the Faith by Ana Tejano

Happy Thursday, everyone! ^_^ On the blog today is an interview with author Ana Tejano about her book Keep the Faith, which is on tour (naks!) this week. I asked her about the challenges she face while writing her second book, her favorite character in Keep the Faith, and a fun, Valentine’s Day-related question about the book’s MC and LI.

But first, here’s what Keep the Faith is all about:

Release date: July 31, 2016

As a community development worker, Faith was quite familiar with heartbreak and recovery after all the time she spent on disaster relief missions. So when her five-year relationship ends right before she left for a mission trip to a typhoon-stricken town in Iloilo, she tries not to make a big deal out of it. How can she be broken up about a breakup when she’s with people who literally lost everything?

But now that she’s back, all Faith wants is for her life to go back to normal and have people stop looking at her with pity. Never mind that she still has a lot of questions about the breakup, or that she feels a tiny ache every time her ex comes up in conversations. She’s okay now, and happily distracted by Nico Tamayo, the attractive new guy at work.

With new possibilities in the horizon, Faith thinks she is well on her way to moving on. But when her past comes calling back to her, will all the good things in her present be enough to keep her on the path? Or will she finally learn that there was more to heartbreak and recovery than what she knows?
