Are you an author or an artist who’s thinking of getting into a different medium to expand your audience? If you are and you don’t know where to start, you should totally join the online discussion hosted by #RomanceClass for #BuwanNgMgaAkdangPinoy today, August 17 at 7pm (Manila Time) on Twitter. I’m on the panel (@anselacorsino), along with video blogger and author Carla de Guzman (@carlakdeguzman), and the host of the Book Thingo podcast Kat Mayo (@BookThingo).
Last Sunday, I had my very first Radish Live Chat for my story The Billionaire’s Game. It was so much fun! I didn’t expect so many readers would be there from places where it was either too early in the morning or too late at night. Thank you so much.
The Live Chat was exclusively for readers who read my latest update of TBG, chapter 56 “Tea and Company”. As I promised, I held a Radish coin giveaway. I posted eight questions about TBG and picked the best answers. I said the winners would get 10 coins each, but after giving it some thought, I changed my mind and awarded them 12 coins instead.
Q1. What do you think happens in the next episode?
Obviously I already knew what was going to happen in chapter 57, but I thought it would be fun to find out what the readers were speculating.
So we’re doing a Live Chat on the Radish app at noon (Manila time) on Sunday, September 16. Everyone who joins the chat has a chance to win coins. I’ll explain how!
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.
“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!
A bunch of readers have been asking me if The Billionaire’s Price will be available in paperback. I’m very pleased to let you all know that, yes, paperback copies of TBP is now available to purchase on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Book Depository and other retailers. (Ebook links are below.)
Philippine Edition (bank deposit payment)
Philippine Edition (paypal/credit card payment)
Barnes & Noble
For those of you who prefer the ebook version, you can buy the digital copy of TBP on Amazon Kindle and various ebook retailers. Release date is today, February 26. (If it’s not February 26 in your part of the world, you’ll be able to preorder.)
