My Firsts in 2016



A lot happened this 2016, it was a year of first times. First April Feels Day, first Heist Club Launch, my first Manila International Book Fair, and first October Feels Day were the highlights in my writing endeavor. 

...and I still have a long way to go. Aja!


April
The April Feels Day was the first #romaceclass event I attended and also where I met Elizabeth and Kim. Yay!


June
The Heist Club Launch was the first book launch I was able to attend to. It felt surreal. There were question and answer portion about our books. I was so thankful that I delivered answers during my turn. Heist Club people were amazing, hand-in-hand we could achieve goals set by the group. We also started writing Book 2 of our Heist Club Series and it was set to be launch on the first or second quarter of 2017.

September
MIBF! Finally, I was present during the 37th MIBF. It was a dream come true. Being surrounded by lots of books was like a taste of my addiction to paperback copies.

October
Feels Fest of #romanceclass was a day of kilig and book launch. Once Summer Days was blessed to be one of the books and the 5 minutes given to me at the event to speak about my book in front of readers and writers was nerve wracking and blissful experience.

I met lots of awesome people because of #romanceclass. Yey! 💕😊

I have 3 self-published books in 2016. Yay! 💕
Yearning for the One - April
Chasing an Elusive Dream - August
Once Summer Days - October

None of these would happen if it wasn't for God's provision. More friends to meet! More stories to write and books to publish! 

Fighting!
