you were at #MIBF2017 and felt sad to know #romanceclass isn’t there this year,
you have missed any (or all! OMGWHY) of the past #romanceclass events, or;
you just can’t wait to attend another #romanceclass event…
Then don’t miss #FeelsFest2017 this coming October 14 (yes, it’s only a month away–EEEEEK!) at the Commune Cafe+Bar in Makati. We opened registration on Monday, and as of this writing, there are only 26 slots left! Imagine that. Don’t miss the fun–REGISTER HERE NOW. The fee is P500, inclusive of snacks, a freebie, and a deluge of feelings!
Hankering for more Filipino-authored romances? Well, you’re in luck, because a lot of my fellow #romanceclass authors are having a $0.99 sale too! Take a look at this very useful Twitter thread put together by our dear friend, Chachic:
Back in April, Jay, Six, and I released this summer music festival anthology called Summer Crush, something we had a lot of fun putting together. (Exhausting too, but all worth it.) As a special gift to those who bought the book, we also produced live reading videos featuring excerpts from each of our stories, and we got Gio Gahol and Gab Pangilinan to help us out! We made those videos available to our readers last month, and now you can have access to them too!
Relive your Summer Crush feelings over and over again with these short videos, and don’t forget to share the love! We can never get enough of our live readers, anyway, right?
#romanceclass is looking for new YA (young adult) authors–could you be one of them? If you’ve been wanting to write a #romanceclass book but don’t know where to start, this is your chance to be mentored by two amazing Filipino authors, Agay Llanera and Ines Bautista-Yao!
Click on the link below to view the signup page, read the rules carefully, and register for the class when you’re ready. But don’t wait too long, because the form closes on August 25!
^ Now THAT is a pretty accurate description of what went down at the citruSnap studio last May 14, to be honest. There we were, six giddy authors (one of whom is also the photographer, the other, a book cover designer), two gorgeous models, and one badass stylist, trying our best to stay on our toes and be ~productive on a hot, Sunday morning. While this wasn’t the first time I got involved in a photo shoot, this was the first time I sponsored one for a personal project.
I wasn’t prepared. *insert sweating emoji here* Yes, even when I’ve saved a bunch of reference photos on my Pinterest board and sent it over to Mina to compile. Even when I had already outlined 2/3 of the book for which some of the photos will be shot. Even when I’ve rehearsed in my head what kind of direction I’d be giving Fred and Vanya so I can achieve the look I wanted. Nope. I wasn’t.
