Hey look it’s 2018! Hello, how’s the first day of the year treating you so far? 🙂 2017 was very eventful, more in terms of #romanceclass events than the actual writing. We had several events for the community in the past year that I’ve actively participated in the behind-the-scenes (and I only got to recap one, haha) that it feels like I’ve spent most of the year with them. That’s probably true, and I don’t mind. Oh, and I got my books live read twice this year, and nope, the feeling still doesn’t go away. (And I’m getting something read out… Read More »Hello, 2018!
Happy second day of 2017! So, like everyone else, 2016 has been an eventful year for me, too. I wrote a general recap of it in my personal blog, and most of the things I put there were book things and #romanceclass things because there were just so many of them that I want to remember. But if you’re too lazy to click over there for the recap, here’s a quick list: AprilFeelsDay Book # 1.5 – It’s a Match Book # 2 – Keep the Faith FeelsRushIn #romanceclass lectures Manila International Book Fair FeelsFest, this live reading of Keep… Read More »Hello, 2017!
In 2010, when I was still a book blogger, I decided to actively read Filipino-authored books.

Six years later, I found it was easier to do it because most of the books I have access to and the ones I actually want to read were written by fellow authors. I know that it’s not always the case for other people, because we are still discovering people who are just discovering us and our books as… Read More »Books by Filipino Authors Read in 2016
I realized that I’m pretty bad with personal deadlines lately. Case in point: there’s this email that I was supposed to send even before the new year rolled by but I only got to send it this week. This was a bit personal so there was a lot of stuff that I had to discern before I even sent it out, and I guess it was pretty delicate in terms of content…but still, more than a month before I finally crossed it out on my to-do list. How about thaht? Second example: book 2. I don’t think I need to explain… Read More »It’s about time
It’s kind of weird writing this blog post when I haven’t even fixed the entire site yet, but I kind of don’t want people to go here with just one post when this finally opens. So when this is finally open, and you’re reading this: hello, welcome to the website. Or, as my friend Kai say, Adele style: hello from the other side. 😛 I was supposed to have another WordPress site that I also never launched, because maintaining too many blogs is hard. And it was supposed to be a secret blog in the sense that it’s totally not connected to my… Read More »Hello there.
