Renowrites blog!

Author of YA novel "Enlightenment" available March 2019!

A whirlwind

Life has been flashing by! Since Enlightenment was released in March, I’ve been to 4 booktalks and 3 Book Festivals, all in the name of my Bathala Series! Tucson, Dallas, Los Angeles and Berkeley have been memorable experiences!

All the authors I’ve met have been supportive and for the most part, readers have given me love. Here’s some pics of the various events.

I’ve also had two blog tours so big shout out to Tita Kate Heceta for the Philippines Blog Tour and Sarah Slattery for the stateside tour.

Lately I’ve attended political events within the Fil-Am community to mobilize our community for the 2020 election. I hold a board position in a couple Fil-Am organizations and it’s been keeping me busy outside of my writing world. I’ve been trying to figure out how to talk about my Filipino community involvement while also promoting my Young Adult novel. I don’t want to alienate anyone since politics can be divisive. But my involvement is worth mentioning here and there, and that’s what I’m resolved to do through this blog.

At the same time, I’m working on meeting deadlines for Book Two of The Bathala Series. Some days are slower than others, but when I have a good writing session, I reward myself with sushi!

More to come this summer! Stay tuned! In the meantime, enjoy these random pics of events I’ve attended!

  • Mar. 7 - How dare you have a snowstorm when I don't live there anymore 03/07/2007
       How dare you have a snowstorm when I don't live there anymore by Paul Ryan Wednesday, Mar. 7, 2007 C'mon, Duluth. You had twenty-foot snowdrifts last weekend? Really? What the hell happened? Is God still pissed about that Jesus crucifixion thing? Are you sure the snowbanks aren't just frozen locusts? There comes a time in every person' […]
  • Feb. 28 - Celebrity gossip helps our nation 02/28/2007
       Celebrity gossip helps our nation by Paul Ryan Wednesday, Feb. 28, 2007 There was a time when celebrity gossip wasn't the center of our universe. Granted, none of the cavemen or cavewomen from that era are still alive, but it existed. Or at least I hope it did. It's hard to be sure without any living witnesses. Even before Anna Nicole Smith deco […]

       Tax tips for liars, scoundrels, and people who don't like to work by Paul Ryan Wednesday, Feb. 21, 2007 February is that special time of year when lovers exchange gifts to show how much they care about each other. Since I'm a bit of an expert on Valentine's Day, I'm going to give you a few tips that . . . What? The fourteenth? Who the […]
  • Feb. 14 - My downstairs neighbor is a douche 02/16/2007
       My downstairs neighbor is a douche by Paul Ryan Wednesday, Feb. 14, 2007 My downstairs neighbor doesn't like me very much. You'd think we'd have a few things in common since we're the same age, but she seems to hate everything I enjoy. For instance, I love pounding nails into the wall late at night. Her? Not so much. I also love playin […]
  • Feb. 7 - I've been given a tour of the gay community 02/07/2007
       I've been given a tour of the gay community by Paul Ryan Wednesday, Feb. 7, 2007 I'm a straight man, but I have a few gay friends. It's always interesting when we hang out, because a straight man's night out is very different from a night of gay clubbing. For instance, the women who hang out with gay men are very attractive, while the […]
