COVER REVEAL: Settle the Score / Hustle Play

Oh hi~ I’m back with a new (ish) book release! Ish, because half of this two-part book has already been released as an eBook via Buqo early this year.

Settle the Score is a short story about basketball player Garnet Figueroa, who makes a move to “rescue” her good friend, Charles Crisostomo, from an unhealthy relationship. The second installment, Hustle Play, continues where Settle the Score left off.

Amazon Release: October 15 (Click here to pre-order for only $0.99!)
Print Release: October 22 (#FeelsFest, baby!)

Are you ready to get Scandalized?

In April of last year, I joined my very first (non-academic) writing workshop under Mina V. Esguerra’s guidance, #SparkNA. The goal was to finish a contemporary New Adult manuscript of no less than 20,000 words in a span of 2 months. It was a tall order, but worth a shot.

One year later, here I am, making preparations to release the fruit of that workshop. But while final touches are being done to the manuscript, cover, and everything in between–here’s a little something I made for East Genesis Project, the Korean pop-rock band featured in my book, Scandalized.

More to come, SOON! ^_^

P.S. If you come to #AprilFeelsDay this coming Sunday (April 17), I’ll have some tiny Scandalized stuff to give away. So see you there!

I don’t remember which month it was last year that Mina posted an announcement about a Children’s Lit writing workshop, I just remember wanting to be in it. So much, that I was already playing with a concept in my head even before I officially signed up.

Maybe it’s because this was going to be my third MVE-facilitated workshop that I’ve come to expect a thing, something . . . like a parameter, a rule. For #SparkNA, it was being brave. And for #StrangeLit it was truth. I wondered what kind of theme #BayongNgKuting was going to have, and as I did so, I sort of abandoned that concept I’d been thinking of just so I could start with a blank slate, just in case.
