UP Press Launch July 1! featuring, among other books, Geek Tragedies!

Hello Friends! Hope to see you on Friday for the UP Press Launch, where they will be launching 9 new titles, including Geek Tragedies. It’s 5pm at the GT Toyota Hall of Wisdom, Magsaysay cor. Katipunan, Asian Center, UP Diliman. Friday’s launch also coincides with the book’s digital launch published by Flipside, so it’ll be available in Amazon for DL. (Question: Am I the first local writer to do simultaneous digital and print launches? It’d be pretty cool if I were) I’m very excited for the launch, not only because I’m excited for my own book but also because I am in some pretty rarefied company. To see the complete list of books please check out the UP Press site.

And yesterday I got a mention in Prof. Butch Dalisay’s column in the Philippine Star. Thanks Sir Butch for taking the time to mention me and help promote my books. And thanks to everyone else who has bought, downloaded, or reserved copies. Please do rate them and post reviews on Amazon, goodreads, and wherever else you’re posting stuff. Thanks again and hope to see you all.

Geek Tragedies Sampler Available for Free Download!

As I try and build up to the launch of Geek Tragedies on July 1, I want to give people  a chance to see some of it, read some of it. Included in this sampler are the Intro by Adam David, some art by Adam and Josel, the short story Everybody Gets Off at Cubao, and a six word story. Please check it out, pass it around, tell your friends. If you like it, you can get it in print from the UP Press and in digital formats by Flipside on Amazon and soon the iBookstore. Spread the word, true believers! Check the link to my Scribd feed for other stuff too!

But if you want a digital version (care of Flipside Digital), you can pre-order it from Amazon!

I’m very excited about Geek Tragedies, as I think it’s a really fun book with a good variety of stories. It’s also the first Filipino book, as far as I know, that will have simultaneous print and digital launches. Please check it out in whatever format you like, and pass the word around, repost, etc etc. thanks everybody for helping out.
