Philippines Blog Tour

Happy to announce the…dum dum dum….Twitter #enlightenmentblogttour in the Philippines!

If you’re on Twitter, use the above hashtag and you’ll see all the interesting goings ons with Enlightenment: Book One of The Bathala Series! Thanks to @titakate for hosting and promoting Enlightenment to the Philippines and Southeast Asian YA readership! A YA novel like mine that has Filipino folklore as its backdrop is one to at least give a read, regardless of the fact I’m the author.

Also as a sidenote, I’m currently working on Book Two of The Bathala Series. Less time blogging and more time writing has been my motto the last month and a half. While Enlightenment takes place in Vegas, Book Two takes place in the Philippines. With The Bathala Series targeted as a 7 Book Series, we are in the early stages of an unpredictable adventure.

It’s my hope YA readers gravitate to Enlightenment, learn a few things and become connected to Dorothy, Adrian and Stella. These three have been interacting in my head and on the page for years, so to share them with the world is a surreal feeling. Readers – be kind to my babies lol!

#enlightenmentblogtour on Twitter until March 30th! Hopefully you can check it out and be part of the conversations. 🖖🏼

Tucson Festival of Books

Had a great time at the Tucson Festival of Books March 2 & 3! Met some great authors and I geeked out at Readers positive reactions to Enlightenment. It seems Filipino folklore & mythology in Young Adult fiction hasn’t been done before according to many. Maybe in the States?

There has to be some YA novels with Filipino folklore written in the Philippines I imagine! That’s my next quest to find out more YA novels titles that have Filipino mythology as its backdrop. Anyone who knows of titles please share!

Here’s some photos from the Festival!
