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?
And so, the final promotional ~thing for our summer music festival anthology, Summer Crush ended last Sunday! It came in the form of three video recordings, excerpts from each of the three short stories–Jay E. Tria’s You Only Need Reminding, Almost There by yours truly, and Six de los Reyes’ Ocean Eyes–read by two people we love, Gio Gahol and Gab Pangilinan.
Did you think we were done? Nah-uh! We’re just getting started! 😛
Join us for the Summer Crush blog tour happening this May 12-19 and hang out with Trainman, East Genesis Project, Arabella, and Rhys at the Meet & Greet on May 20! We’ll be raffling off prizes, so don’t miss it!
My first Six de los Reyes book was Just for the Record. My first Jay E. Tria book was Songs of Our Breakup. I still remember reading both books and thinking “Damn, I wish I wrote that.” And if you told me two years ago that I will help create a universe where Six and Jay’s characters existed and interacted with mine, I’d say “You’re crazy.”
By the time I hit Publish on this blog post, Summer Crush will have been two days old. It still feels pretty surreal that Six, Jay, and I were able to make it this far, and really, all we could tell ourselves the moment Jay uploaded the book on Amazon was “WE DID IT. WE REALLY DID IT!”
I have plenty more things to say, but that’s going to go on my “reflection paper” (Jay already posted hers, haha) which should be up in a few days. For now, I’m going to leave you with these:
**Please note that the free gift will be sent to you via email AFTER the blog tour in May. This is open to all readers around the world, so please let us know if you’ve bought the book so we can thank you with this little offering! <3
And here’s something fun Six, Jay, and I came up with–the Who’s Your Summer Crush? Quiz!
Comment below to let me know who you got? ^^
This is all for now–happy reading, and thank you so much in advance for your time!
