🎧 s2ep04: Author Journal – Trying new things
Hello, listener, it’s a brand new year, at least since the last time you heard from me. Sorry about that. I really need to stop podfading. I had an episode recorded and set up. And I’ve been editing it. But before I could finish, I stopped and then forgot about it.

TranscriptHello, this is Ansela, and you are listening to Adulting for Authors. Yeah, that’s right— I’m back.
So yesterday, I decided to post a little message, a little note on Patreon for my patrons. And it was mostly to tell them that this week’s chapter for Fake-Married to my Billionaire Boss is late, which, of course they already knew. Because yesterday was Thursday, and I was supposed to post it on Monday. That’s what I promised right? At the beginning of the month of October, I posted a thing and said, Okay, so we’re going to do this more regular. I decided I should be more regular with my rewards. 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.
Rich People Problems – Livestream on June 5, Saturday!

#009 – Plot Challenges with 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).
#007 – Spreadsheets and Divas with 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.
#006 – Pressure to Rep with Chi Yu Rodriguez
I chatted with Chi Yu Rodriguez at Starbucks on Matalino about how she finished a book in full-day writing sessions, and why being an #OwnVoices author writing bisexual characters in romance has its own unique kind of difficulty. You also get a special treat: at the end of the episode, I’ve added the live reading […]
AfA – 03 – With Liana Smith-Bautista at B&B (part 1 of 2)
This is the second author interview I conducted while I was in Cebu City a few weeks ago. This time, I chatted with Liana Smith-Bautista, an editor and romance author (she writes under the pen name Kate Sebastian). I spoke with Liana over coffee, pasta and cookies at the Books & Brews Cafe, and she shared her productivity tips, including scary apps and what music is great to write to.
