A Sky of Thanks

25 October 2015

Just so you know, I don't do things half-assed.

Yesterday, to introduce my story A Sky of Wishes at the StrangeLit book launch, I wore the galaxy.

Sir Jude and Miss Rose are MAGICAL
More details about my new haircut and color on a future post!
The launch was held in Recession Coffee (thank you!) because what better way to celebrate new ebooks than with gadgets and coffee? The place was positively packed with authors, family, and friends who went all the way to Eastwood for this special day.

It was a beautiful day for dreams to come true. The fact that it was already my second time to do this (my first ebook was launched in April) didn't make it any less exciting and thrilling! I wish I took more photos, but I seriously just wanted to breathe it all in that I only got a few. I couldn't stop grinning!

My Miah
Thanks for the support! ♥
I've said this before and I will say it again: I've never seen anyone more generous with her talent and time. Thank you, Mina!
With my Incredible Truths bundlemate Elea who wrote Shake-ups
Thank you for the insightful tarot reading you did on me!
With Jothee who I met on the first StrangeLit face-to-face class
With my beautiful friend Alex, who completely ignored me the first time I met her
(Yes, I'll never let it go. HAHA!)
With my girl-crush Helga
With my dear friend from high school Ric and his girlfriend Fe
Thank you for coming and for buying all the StrangeLit ebook bundles!
With my dear friend/ former officemate/ former neighbor Michelle
Thank you for your continuous love and support through all these years!
With my Breakfast Clubmates Mike and Ralph
Miah totally nailed the "Krissy Pose" that I'm sure he practices it at home!
It was impossible to take a decent group photo but this was close enough. ^_^
I wish all 41 of us could've been there!
It's impossible to tell you how grateful I am for all the love and support I have been given by my family, friends, and readers of my work. I write not because I want to get rich off it but because I have untold stories waiting to be shared. Thank you for fueling my wishes for these stories to see the light of day! You inspire me endlessly! 

Thank you Recession Coffee for being an excellent host!
After the launch I was supposed to host a winner chicken dinner for my friends, but I ended up spending the rest of the day walking around TriNoma and SM North EDSA with Miah. We capped the night with delicious ice cream, and it was perfect.

Huge thanks to everyone who already got a copy of our ebook! If you did, please post a comment, send me an email, or tweet me so I can send you a postcard! For those who haven't yet, you may go to this link. It's at a very special price of only P45 for a limited time so clickity-click! I'm also giving away copies here!

I couldn't have wished for a better way for this day to unfold. I'm storing the memories in my little pockets of joy in my heart so I have something to use when the blues come. One of my biggest dreams is to be published, and this year I got to do it! TWICE! My gratitude cup runneth over for everyone who helped me make it happen.
“In the end, though, maybe we must all give up trying to pay back the people in this world who sustain our lives. In the end, maybe it's wiser to surrender before the miraculous scope of human generosity and to just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely, for as long as we have voices.”

Next dream: A TANGIBLE BOOK THAT READERS CAN HOLD AND SNIFF. Thanks in advance, Universe!
