Sunsets at Puerto Galera book release

My ebook is going live in Kindle, Kobo and Nook tomorrow, July 2nd!! My paperback is now in Amazon.com. It’s soon to come to iTunes, B&N.com, IndieBound and perhaps Books-A-Million. For Philippine paperback Amazon orders, I’ve heard of distribution via Book Depository, Abebooks, TBD, LBC, USA Goods and Wordery. I’ve never tried any of them – please feel free to share your experience. For my local MI friends: I’ll be at the Detroit Eastern Market on July 15th together with hundreds of other authors for the 2nd Annual Detroit Bookfest. I’ll be at Shed 6 at the Rochester Writers table, ready to chat and (I can’t believe I’m saying this) sign copies! 😀 More events to come!!

(To new visitors: This novel is titled “Sunsets at Puerto Galera”. It’s a contemporary romance set in the Philippines written in English.)

I had a great time on Saturday celebrating with close family and friends in Michigan for my birthday and book release. I’m so very grateful to everyone for sticking out with me on that stickiest day of the year.

This is me in shambles while doing public speaking – to close family and friends! I guess I missed the Toastmaster’s train.

How I wish I could also celebrate this milestone with family and friends in the Philippines and everywhere else! Pag-uwi ko dyan sa pasko, for sure, I’ll plan an event, kahit maliit lang! 😀

Please feel free to share this novel with friends, and don’t be shy to leave positive reviews in Amazon or Good Reads! ;-D

Last but not the least: I meant what I said with this book. Part of the profit will go to World Vision, Children Incorporated and Child Hope Philippines. So you can feel good knowing you are somehow helping out, while getting a good dose of feels from some written words.
