2013, you’ve been a good year! 

Well Played by Katrina Ramos Atienza

And just like that, it's a whole new year! Makes me all giddy and reflective for the year that was. 2013 was awesome for my muse: Published my first independent novella, Well Played. Overcame (slightly) my fear of public speaking and shared my love of, respectively: writing and Jane Austen at the Eureka Seminar and […]

Filipino Reader Con 2013

Last Saturday, December 7, southron, sniffly me braved the northbound commute to attend my first-ever Filipino ReaderCon — and it was worth the congestion!

Hot for teacher 

I'm working on a new contemporary romance and now it's at 7 chapters and around 9,300 words. My sister's been beta reading the progress. Have I mentioned that one of the characters is a super hot teacher? This is who my sister has in mind: And this is who I was picturing… James Wolk or […]

Kobo Kilig 

The Kobo's been getting buzz since National Bookstore brought in and sold the e-reader. What I didn't realize is that when I listed on Smashwords, Well Played got listed on Kobo Books too.

Casting Well Played, part 2

I think Felix Roco is a great touch! Haven't […]
