Fallen: The Event, Lauren Kate Live in Manila

On my way home, I can’t help but noticing the huge poster of Fallen and Lauren Kate in Glorieta National Bookstore’s glass wall. Lauren Kate, the renowned author of Fallen series is coming to town, yey!

Fallen: The Event will be held on November 27, 2010, 5PM at Atrium,┬áThe Podium, brought to us by National Bookstore. To get invites, you first need to buy a copy of lauren Kate’s books Fallen and/or Torment in National Bookstore until the event proper. You could find a paper at the back and that will serve as your invitation.

There’s also a chance that Lauren Kate will sign books depending on the number of participants. If many showed up, the names will be raffled and only those will get their books signed. As for me, I don’t know if I could attend since my Lauren Kate book’s are bought in Fully Booked or Powerbooks and I do not want to buy another copy. But then I wanted to see her still, I’m a big fan of YA authors.

I just wish that they’ll also get Becca Fitzpatrick here in Manila and I’ll be 100% sure in my attendance.

eXtreme Creative Writing with James Abela

X-treme Creative Writing, I found this book while exploring at National Bookstore and I’m kind of thinking on buying a book like this that will help me improve my writing skills. I chose this over others cause it claims to help readers break free from their boring writing skills and be more creative, and because it’s thin and I think it’s not hard to understand.

I already finished reading this book. There’s 17 chapters all in all that will provide help step by step from writing to publishing your very own book. You won’t have a hard time understanding the concepts, just think of basic english or math. Also there’s advises and practices readers are encourage to perform and I am so willing to do. So expect in my future posts that there will be at least 17 entries that related to theses extreme creative exercises and I will be really grateful if you’ll comment and share your thoughts about my writing and if its really improving haha!
