Komiket Is on Saturday – Will You Be There?

Me? I’ll certainly try to get there.

There are so many reasons why I think going to Komiket will be awesome:

  • Motzie Dapul is planning to sell her Beloved Engkato Horrors comic, which is an LGBT Philippine urban fantasy thing (I love her, seriously)
  • Paperback copies of Tara FrejasPaper Planes Back Home and The Forget You Brew will be available (I have fangirled over her writing before)
  • Hell, a bunch of writerly folks I like will be there (check out the #romanceclass booth!)
  • Plus, MORE indie work I haven’t seen before
  • It’ll be held at a fairly accessible place, on a date covered by a long weekend I filed for, and the entrance fee is way cheaper than a movie ticket

The things getting in my way:

  • The fact that I haven’t even finished my draft for Project Times
  • The weird weather (been getting random asthma attacks over the last month or so)
  • A sick kitty (my poor Babudook!)
  • The TV show and book backlog I’ve been ignoring
  • My own laziness (which is considerable and clearly genetic)

Unfortunately, I can neither confirm nor deny my presence at the Komikon at this point. But that doesn’t mean that YOU can’t enjoy yourself there.

So if you have the time (and the willpower), come check this event out!

Get Free (e)Books for Your Old Tree Books!


Okay guys, here are the official details—as I mentioned in my previous poetic post, you can get a free ebook storybundle for any fiction/biography tree book (that’s regular books, y’all). Remember to ask for the #StrangeLit bundles, where my short story about a girl, earthquakes, and mysterious strangers can be found!

Or, if you’re not into that kind of thing, you can find other stories and other genres too—Romance, YA, and more!


You can learn more about this project via the Official #ABookForAnEBook post on the Buqo blog.

Seriously, this is an AWESOME initiative. The books you donate will be given to libraries (thus spreading more readable joy to more people), and you get more stuff to read for FREE. It’s a win-win sitch!

So if you’re in Manila from September 16-20, 2015, don’t hesitate to drop off those tree books in exchange for ebooks. Who knows? You might discover your new favorite stories there. 🙂

Cheers, you guys!
