Celebrating #LunaEast and #RomanceClass

Last Saturday, me and my fellow #romanceclass authors had our very first book launch and signing. It was quite a big thing, with most of us delving into writing and publishing for the first time. With the local publishing landscape evolving to bring indie publishing to the forefront, now has never been a better time to be an author and self-publish!
At the registration area with (l-r): Jayen, AC, Alyssa, and friend. :)
We had an abundance of sweets...and milk!

Friends and family members of authors Chrissie Peria, with Chris Mariano
What was even more amazing was that the party was held at the Ayala Museum, one of the swankiest places at the heart of Makati. The last time I was there, a friend of mine got married and we had a mini tour around the place.

My First Podcast (Guesting)

I've always been an avid listener of the Five by Five Podcast hosted by Mina V. Esguerra and Tania Arpa since they restarted this amazing venture late last year. What's great about this show is that it features geeky things that I love (books, movies, TV series, pop culture, etc.)...and I'm guesting in it tomorrow!

Hope you can tune in on February 6, 7:30 pm (GMT+8) for episode 7 where I'll talk about my writing projects. I'll also be geeking out on Supernatural! I'm very excited to share my thoughts and talk about my favorite TV series (and hope not to spoil the story for those who haven't seen it yet). If you're a fan of the show, tweet us using the hashtag #5x5podcast to ask your questions or just geek out with me!

I'm having a small giveaway during the live show as well. Looking forward to those questions and comments!
