Starting this post with a tweet–
I've spoken to my editor (hi ninang @alyal_20) about the ~fate of Yihwan's book today, and I think it's safe to say that
1. The release date may be later than planned, but;
2. GOOD things come to those who wait.

–in which #2 means a spin-off novelette for Backstage Pass’ Gabriel and Fi! <3 Yeap, sometime during the editing process, my editor (Ninang Layla) told me she wanted to see Gabe and Fi in a book of their own. And because I’m an obedient godchild, Stay With Me was born.
Take a look at the lovely cover below.
Stay With Me
(A Backstage Pass B-Side)
“Come live with me for a while.”
Moving to Seoul for a job at an entertainment company has made a self-reliant woman out of Filipina. But when she gets injured in an accident and her boyfriend, Gabriel, proposes she move in with him until she’s back in shape, Fi reluctantly gives up her independence in favor of some TLC.
What happens when being under one roof ignites the desire she has been firmly keeping underneath the surface? Will she up and leave, or decide to stay?
This is a Backstage Pass B-Side.
Stay With Me is a short story that happens simultaneously with Play It By Ear. Official release date is May 31, 2019.
Stay tuned for more announcements!
