#009 – Plot Challenges with Mina V. Esguerra

Leave a comment
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).

Resisting Sin (Gold Diggers #1) – Episode Two

Resisting Sin (Gold Diggers #1)

“Did you get a new job?” Hayley said. She herself hadn’t any luck finding part-time work. And it had to be part-time. She couldn’t afford to leave the job she already had.

Jenna gave a dismissive wave of her hand, before plopping down on a well-worn armchair. They’d picked it up off the street two years ago, where someone had abandoned it. “Nah,” she said. “I have something better.” She pointed her phone she was clutching to Hayley’s open laptop sitting on the coffee table. “You didn’t get my email, did you?”

“Huh?” Hayley felt a twinge of alarm. Jenna sent her an email? An actual old-fashioned email? Not Twitter or Facebook or any of a million other social media accounts she managed?

“Go on! Open it!” Jenna was bouncing in her seat. Obviously annoyed at her friend’s slowness in opening her email, she moved to sit beside Hayley on the couch.

“Okay, okay.” Hayley opened her email. “What’s this?”

“It’s an invite. I got it an hour ago. I’m allowed to bring a friend, although we have to pay for two tickets.”

“Sugar Rush?” Hayley scanned the email. It looked like some kind of party. For people looking for arrangements. “Is this a business networking thing?”

Happy new year! In this episode I explain why AfA episode 4 is super late, and what I’ve been doing on the last day of 2018. We also have the second part of my interview with Liana Smith Bautista at the Books & Brews Cafe. We chatted about fanfiction and the communities around them, and more writing productivity tools.
