Beyond The Stars

First things first: Yes, I was at the #BitterxSweet event at Ayala Museum, where I sold Crushingly Close and Save the Cake (and signed both books for fans) as well as stuck around for the live readings.

Today’s Dispatch: Waiting on a Line of Greens and Blues

This post was brought to you by THIS SONG: See, here’s the problem: It’s October 30, right? And I’m supposed to be plotting my NaNo by now, because we’ll be busy tomorrow since we’re getting a jump (pun not intended) on All Saints’ Day by visiting the family pantheon. (Okay, not exactly a real “pantheon” per se, but we use…
