Today on the blog, I’m excited to share the cover of Clarisse David’s upcoming book, Keeping the Distance. I’ve been following her tweets and updates about this book, and color me curious with all the teasers. I also like the fact that this is set in Iloilo, the hometown of one of my LIs, and where I’m heading to this February. Yes, I’m definitely bringing a copy of Clarisse’s new book when I go there.

In 2010, when I was still a book blogger, I decided to actively read Filipino-authored books.
