Some Social Media Experiments

So last week, I realized that my Facebook page just reached 300 likes. While not all 300  people will probably see my posts because of the Facebook algorithm, I realized that hey, 300 is still a pretty nice number and it’s not so easy to get to that especially when you don’t post as much as I do. So thank you, friends and family. As a little gift, Facebook people had the chance to get a free ebook copy of Fall Like Rain via Instafreebie. And because I took up social media marketing a few months ago, I decided to… Read More »Some Social Media Experiments

New short story – It’s a Match

I meant to write about this earlier but I couldn’t find the proper time for it. It could also be that I’m just totally terrified about this – and I forgot how that felt until now. But it’s here, so I’m just going to ride this terror/excitement out. I have a new short story out on Amazon! 🙂 It’s a Match A short story Cams Ronquillo is single and ready to mingle – at least, online. After finally moving on from her last break-up, she decides to try online dating thanks to the encouragement of Gabriel Evangelista, her friend, business partner,… Read More »New short story – It’s a Match

It’s April and we feel Things

Who would have thought that it would become this three years ago?

When Ron asked that question sometime in the middle of that hot Sunday afternoon while we were in Pegi Waffles, I smiled. I’ve asked the same thing about other things several times (like Filipino ReaderCon, or the book club), but hearing it again for another thing just never gets old. It’s amazing what people with like-minded interests can do.

Especially like-minded romance writers and readers with lots of feelings.

So, last Sunday, April 17, was the first ever #AprilFEELSdayIt’s a celebration of romance books and authors and readers, with various activities like book selling, tarot card reading, writing and publishing Q&A, poetry reading, and the much-awaited live reading sessions from the next seasons of the #romanceclass podcast.

It was a hot, hot day made even hotter by the number of people that sat inside Pegi Waffles. I just realized that I hardly sat down that day – save for the time that I ate lunch, and then when all was over and we were all hanging out and waiting for everyone to leave and settle the payment. But it was fine, because the place was so packed that I didn’t have any place to sit, anyway.

The End

So this happened last weekend:   What a relief to finally write THE END. I haven’t finished anything since I finished Fall Like Rain years ago. That makes me feel a little bad because I really wasn’t working hard enough on this, but also not too bad because this was a surprisingly difficult story to finish. Could be a combination of real-life experiences, plus some lack of knowledge on some parts. Thank God for (guy) friends who allowed me to ask them all those relationship questions, haha. So now the draft is with my beta readers while I go through it in… Read More »The End
