I thought a lot about what ~authorly thing I can do for Christmas that’s not a giveaway (because I think I might have done too many this year already) and came up with this–a weekly ebook freebie!
Because it’s #BuwanNgMgaAkdangPinoy, all my books on Amazon are $0.99 until the end of the month! Check out my titles below:
Paper Planes Back Home
The “Forget You” Brew
Settle the Score / Hustle Play
Waiting in the Wings
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:

There you go~ time for some book shopping! Have fuuu~n! <3
Three days ago, I discovered Yazzy, a phone application that can generate different kinds of social media content from information you input. Using the app, you can easily create fake text or chat logs as well as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter posts–so naturally, I had to make some for my characters… and I had so much fun.
Here’s a collection of the first few chat logs I made, featuring characters from Scandalized.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything like this, and really, following my personal publishing schedule, I should have done this for Waiting in the Wings. But these babies have been sitting in my graphics folder for a while now, and there’s no better time to post them here than now, since I’m releasing a new book (an anthology, to be more precise) in this universe very soon.
If East Genesis Project (Yihwan, Steven, and Minchan), Fi, and Gabriel had Instagram, this is probably what their feed would look like. Let me know if you think they’re #feedgoals, haha! ^_^
Important Note: The personalities included in these photos are image pegs and are not, in any way, connected to me or the aforementioned book.
Honestly, I hadn’t really planned on writing a yearender blog post for reasons that are relatively mababaw (i.e. my internet connection S U C K S here in Baguio City), but I thought it would be nice to cap this mostly WTF year with a look back at the moments I was most thankful for. After all, happiness stems from having a grateful heart, right?
And so without further ado, here are the 16 sweetest moments of my 2016.
1. Being able to write for kids. (Bayong ng Kuting Workshop, January 2016)
Being able to write is, in itself, a blessing, but at the end of 2015, I decided to challenge myself and enroll in the Bayong ng Kuting Workshop. The workshop required us to craft an original children’s story around the Bayong ng Kuting universe. And if you think writing children’s lit is easy, think. again. No news yet about our submissions, but no matter the outcome, I’m so glad I took on this challenge. ^_^
2. Dipping my toes in uncharted waters. (#romanceclass @ Komiket, February 2016)
Another first for #romanceclass and myself was being one of the participating merchants at the Komiket, an event that featured and celebrated indie komiks and the talented people behind them. We probably stood out like a sore thumb then, selling romance novels alongside comicbooks and art, but it had been fun, and we actually sold books! I believe this was where the idea for #4 came up (though I could be wrong, heh).
BONUS ROUND: I met Manix Abrera for the first time in this event! He is SO COOL. <3
