About the Author

Filipino author Ansela Corsino writes contemporary romance comedies with high heat. Apart from reading romance novels, she enjoys murder mysteries and science fiction. She does not own a pet.

Her work is heavily influenced by old Harlequin and Mills & Boon romances from the eighties from her grandmother’s library, and contemporary Korean dramas. Her books appear on Wattpad and Radish, and are available as print and ebooks on Amazon, Apple Books, Kobo, Google Play Books and various other online book marketplaces.

Each week, she rambles about her experience as an independent author on her podcast Adulting for Authors. You can find her on Twitter and Mastodon.

She likes cake.

      Hello, friends, it’s November 2022. Happy National Novel Writing Month. Some of you may be doing NaNoWriMo this year. I won’t be. Probably not. For various reasons.

So once a week, at least for my $1 and $3 patrons. So I said every Monday — new chapter. At least, that’s to begin with. I might add some more stuff next month, but I didn’t want to overwhelm myself.
