If you follow me on any of my socials, you may have seen me invite you to subscribe to my newsletter. I’ve had my newsletter for a few years now. I love it. I love being able to write an email and send it out to hundreds of my readers in one go. These emails can be as long, short, simple, or chock-full of info as I want. I like to send out news to my newsletter before I post it anywhere else. The newsletter also makes it easy to give away books to my readers.

sapin sapin

Since it’s been sitting in the fridge for a couple of days, the sapin sapin was cold. I had a microwave but you don’t want to just pop it in the microwave because that always leads to a dry, unevenly warmed rice cake. I did have an electric steamer but I didn’t want to have to deal with the cleanup. Luckily, my mom taught me a microwave hack that works nicely with heating up rice cakes.

Adulting for Authors — Guest: Mina V. Esguerra

I interview romance author Mina V. Esguerra about her writing process and how she manages to hit her word count goals. We also go in-depth about her difficulties with her latest book Kiss and Cry (which is available now so go get it). While we chatted, we had a yummy lunch at Mom and Tina’s in Greenhills on the Lunar New Year (yes this episode is super late sorry).

Adulting for Authors—Guest: Tara Frejas

This week’s episode features an interview with romance author Tara Frejas. We met over dinner at Barcino on a Sunday night, and she shared with me her writing process and why she writes the stories she does, among a lot of things. We also chat about the upcoming #RomanceClass film project and a romance anthology she’s co-authoring with five other writers. And as a special treat, this episode also includes a recording of a live reading of an excerpt of one of Tara’s books. Check out Tara’s bio below, and further down, the episode shownotes.
