As many of you know, I publish stories on the Radish fiction app. It’s relatively new, just a little over a year old. So it’s not too surprising that some of you aren’t that familiar with how to navigate your way through it. Take heart, my dear readers. Not only is Radish exceedingly easy (and fun!) to use, but I’ve made a helpful tutorial video that might be of help.
I don’t have a video of me on my panel (“Writing Online: Challenges and Advantages”), but I did manage to record a short video of another discussion panel. This is the steamy romance authors panel with Mina V. Esguerra, Jennifer Hallock, Georgette Gonzales, and Bianca Mori.
What better time to have a book convention for romance readers than in February, right? If you love books about love, join me and other romance authors and readers at the Philippine Romance Convention 2017 on February 19, 2017 at the Activity Center of the Alabang Town Center mall in Muntinlupa City, Metro Manila. The convention will be from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Writing is hard sometimes, and for me, I kinda need all the help I can get. As with most writers, I learned writing from reading. However, it’s always great to hear from actual professional writers who want to share their knowledge and experiences with others. While blogs and writing books are fine, I’ve always enjoyed podcasts about writing. Here are some of the writing podcasts I listen to that discuss the craft of writing.
I’m giving away a free entry to the seminar. So if you’re an author or aspiring author and will be able to be in Makati City, Philippines on March 18, join my raffle! The prize is non-transferable and not convertible to cash.
“I don’t know what game you’re playing, Ms. Andrada. But you don’t want to make an enemy of me.”
Aspiring screenwriter Ines Andrada is eager to pursue her dreams and quit her job as the overworked and unappreciated assistant to a famous film star. But when she takes her movie script to a respected producer, she ends up in bed with her boss’s insanely hot ex-boyfriend.
Despite his billions and a reputation as a ladies’ man, Mason Kilborne doesn’t have much luck in relationships. So the last thing he needs is to be sent an escort as a thank-you gift by a business partner. The very attractive, oddly geeky blonde who shows up at his door is hard to resist, but she may not be all she pretends to be.
To celebrate the launch of the Radish Android app, I’m giving away 200 coins to four lucky Radish readers! Yes, that means each winner gets 50 FREE Radish coins to use to pay for advanced/locked chapters of my stories or any stories by the other awesome writers on Radish.
Are you ready? Let’s do this!
I have some exciting news for you, my lovely readers. The wait is almost over — Radish will now be available on Android on June 15. *throws confetti*
But wait, there’s more!
I have a new story up on Radish. It’s a modern remake of the classic Jane Austen novel Pride and Prejudice. Titled Control, it is a steamy billionaire romance that is definitely not safe for work.
I posted chapter 1 a month ago, and the response has been great so far — over 900 readers have subscribed. I’d been putting this off all this time because I didn’t think I could handle writing two serials simultaneously, but I’d been more productive with my writing these days so I thought that it was time we got this show on the road. Chapters 1 and 2 are now both available to read, with chapter 3 on its way next week. Here’s the blurb, and an excerpt. Enjoy!
