chasing tales: talking fantasy on a saturday night

I spent a lovely Saturday evening with writers Erika Carreon and Carlo Flordeliza, the folks of MoarBooks, and lovers of fantasy stories. Many many thanks to Wina Puangco, Nico Pascual, and the rest of Team MoarBooks for having me at the first installment of Chasing Tales. I had SO much fun talking about writing, and listening to my fellow speakers talk about their process and writing goals. (And the books they are reading — I should make a list! I am very much interested in What Keeps Me Here by Rebecca Brown.) Thank you to the attendees for their enthusiasm and support! Such a smart bunch — I loved the open forum and the coziness of a small group discussing the things I love.

What’s up, what’s new, what’s happening?

I’m afraid I won’t be able to update this blog as much as I used to, as I’d like to devote more brainspace to the exciting and challenging day job, as well as to writing more new things.

However, if you have time, I would like to invite you to Chasing Tales, an upcoming event by indie publisher MoarBooks, an “intimate, straight-up talk on fantasy in fiction and story-telling.”

RSVP here.

Flipside Publishing has also brought my books to Smashwords and Scribd, so do check these out:

The Viewless Dark —
Lower Myths —
A Bottle of Storm Clouds —
Project 17 —

Scribd has a $8.99/mo. unlimited reading subscription. You can try it for free for a month.

Finally, Project 17 and Unseen Moon are among the nominees in the 2014 Filipino Readers’ Choice Awards. Thank you! You can still nominate your favorites until August 18!
