Oh look, it’s 12-12-12! I can’t let this day pass by without blogging on my personal blog and here, because this date will not pass by again until the next century. I’m no immortal, so I’m pretty sure I won’t be around by the time 12-12-12 rolls around again. ;)
So, I’m going to use the fancy date to plug some of the books by a favorite local author, Mina V. Esguerra! :) I’ve known Mina ever since I read her first book My Imaginary Ex, and asked her for a pep talk for NaNoWriMo Philippines. Ever since then, we’ve ran around sort of similar circles in writing and in the book club, and I’m always excited to hear of the things she’s cooking up. I’ve pushed her books to so many people because her books are good place to start if you want to read Filipino chick lit/romance books. :) So I’m really, really happy to share these Smashwords discount codes that Mina generously provided for the people who stumble upon my blog. :) You can use it for yourself if you haven’t read her yet, or use it to buy an ebook for a friend as a Christmas gift! :) The codes are valid for a year, so you can use it for birthdays of friends in 2013, too!
If you’re a paperback fan and you’re in the Philippines — fret not! Summit Books is releasing Philippine editions of these books –Fairy Tale Failis already out, and it’s special to me because it’s my first time to be included in an acknowledgments page of a book:
Love Your Frenemies and Interim Goddess of Love will be out soon, too, I think! Also, I hear Queen of the Clueless, the second book of the Interim Goddess of Love series, will be released in ebook format soon, too. :)
So if you haven’t read any Mina V. Esguerra book yet, this is your chance! I would love to hear from you if you decide to get them — and then let’s gossip about which Mina guy is the hottest, yes? ;)
