project 17, a novel – coming soon

So I’m coming out with a science fiction novel this year. I finished the manuscript late last year, continued editing until early this year, approved the cover, approved the interior illustrations, and now I’m just waiting for the page spreads. With the help of Visprint (publisher), Project 17 should be hitting the bookshelves soon. Watch out for it!

For now, feel free to share this post far and wide. Are you ready ready ready?

UPDATE: The book will be launched in this Saturday’s Aklatan! See you there.

PhP 175

Lillian is merely looking for a babysitting job for the summer, but a desperate man named Paul Dolores hires her to look after his 28-year-old brother, Caleb. Caleb is suffering from schizoaffective disorder, and Paul, who is about to start on his first office job in a long while, wants to make sure his brother takes his medication on time. Lillian, at first hesitant, accepts the job for the pay and the perks, but soon starts to wonder about the brothers she is working for. How come she can’t find any information online about the drugs Caleb is taking? And how come the national central database lists them as dead?
