I have no new books to offer, my latest one, Once Upon A Dream was out last May. But if you’d like to join for a bit of chika, come on over. See you at the 36th Manila International Book Fair, SMX Convention Center, MOA Complex, Pasay City!
It’s that time of year! Voting is now open for the 2015 Filipino Reader’s Choice Awards! My book, Love Will Lead The Way is nominated under the Romance in Filipino category. Maybe you’ve got time to vote for me? One email = one ballot. If you have xx number of emails, you can vote the same number of times, yes? *wink*
Voting is until September 25.
Thank you so much in advance! ^_^
I don’t think I ever publicized this new blogsite dedicated to Filipino romance writers, published and unpublished, whose works are in English or Filipino.
Clara Romance, according to Anne Plaza, one of the site’s owners/administrators,
was borne out of our collective love of romance and support for Filipino authors who continue to hone their craft to write the best romance stories for this generation and the next. We hope that Clara will be more than just an online journal but also a thriving community of readers and writers supporting the best of Filipino romance genre.
Read my contribution on its maiden issue. I used my real name for it. ^_^
Oh, and if you’re interested to contribute your own story/ies, click here for the submission guidelines.
Happy reading and stay in love!
I dunno, I think I am this type, too. And yeah… ouch.
There is no need, I believe, to describe what your character is doing twice. If your readers wanted word synonyms, there’s a thesaurus to help them with that. You’re just cluttering up your prose that way. It’s irritating. And make your character do something else other than ‘wonder suddenly.’ What? He/She possesses no foresight or is always caught unaware? Such a pathetic reaction, if you ask me.
