Happy First Book Birthday, All’s Fair in Blog and War!

One of the difficulties of staying home all day is how you lose track of time, all the time. Which mostly explains why the first book birthday—it sounds better than anniversary—celebration of All’s Fair in Blog and War is more than a week late.

02 Macanese Egg Tart by Margaret

Let’s stick a candle on this egg tart, shall we?

While Five and Jesse’s travel romance is just the first in what I hope is many (second solo story’s coming out in a few weeks), it will always hold a special place in my heart, not just for being the first, but also for being the one to teach me that yes, I can do this.

So, yay! Celebration time. And because the reason to celebrate wouldn’t be there without YOUR support, consider this a thank you from me to you.

While Waiting

whilewaiting_wattpadDuring the All’s Fair in Blog and War blog tour, Judie brought up the idea of having a spin-off for Megh. Now that was a surprise, because I didn’t expect people to like Megh. But because they you did, I decided to revisit her a year after.

That said, here’s While Waiting, an All’s Fair in Blog and War short story spin-off. Read it on wattpad or by updating your Kindle-purchased ebook. The Smashwords version will be updated in a few days.

EDIT: I have been informed that the update procedure for Kindle isn’t as easy as I thought it would be. Have contacted Amazon support already, but in the meantime, please enjoy the story through Wattpad. I will try to put up an ebook version on Smashwords by the weekend. Will announce via Facebook / Twitter when it’s up. My apologies for this.

Book Trailer

I’ve been wanting to do a book trailer for ages and the anniversary was a good excuse to make me do something about it. Here’s the All’s Fair in Blog and War book trailer, my no budget low budget endeavor with surprisingly eggtartastic results.

      Thank you, Cy! I absolutely agree with you. There’s something about chick lit that makes me smile. It’s my go-to genre when I need a little boost of happiness.

      Good luck with the contest! That’s quite a lot of books for mood boosting 😀

          Did you follow @minavesguerra on twitter? She’s coming up with more free limited edition ebook bundles (like Love in All the Right Places) and some of these titles will be included in the next couple of months, methinks.

            Yes, I do. :) Good thing I have 1 day and 10hours pa for the raffle. Ngayon lang nagkaroon ng electricity after four days because Quezon’s been destroyed by the typhoon. :(

      Eeeep! Thank you for catching that, Satchmo. It turns out that the original linked account was a personal facebook page and not a fanpage. Remedied already. Works now :)

      (And good luck!)


I want to hear what you think. I also want potato chips.
