Pinoy Wrimos At The Summer Komikon
As part of our Project 20:10 Advocacy, Talecraft is sponsoring a table for the Pinoy NaNoWriMos to be able to promote and sell their e-books! Here are some of the titles appearing at the Summer Komikon on April 17, 2010 at the UP Bahay ng Alumni:
Title: Ghost Café: Now Open (1 short story, 1 novel)
Genre: Mystery/Thriller, Supernatural
Summary: There's something we call 'retired'. So, if I say I'm already retired, it means I'm no more in service. Been so for the past four years, actually. Please stop sending me lovely lady agents, seriously. It's not easy to run a coffee house when there are blond agents running in and out, threatening me to do exorcisms when I'm already a retired exorcist. It's not that I'm old. I just have issues and hey, just because I agreed to it in the end, it doesn't mean you can just throw some ghost of a crazy serial killer--are you even listening? Jebus.
Title: Crimson Skies
Genre: Literary Fiction
Blurb: Her name is Cindy Wilder and she is a novelist. She wrote a story and made it big in the industry wherein people will die just to reach her. Literally. When she woke up to find an angry yet angel-like creature watching over her; she knew, she is now a part of her story and she's the main character who is doomed to die. Will she be able to live through the next chapters?
Title: Dragon Wars: The Dragon Slayer's Heart (novel excerpt/sample as of last information)
