#FeelsRushIn, a #romanceclass event at Ayala Malls TriNoma
We’re always going to be ready to do a Feels Day, and we proved that when we put together #FeelsRushIn in 10 days. Ha!
I’ve blogged about #AprilFeelsDay and what a great day it was for authors and readers of romance (if I may say so myself). As soon as it was over we were thinking of when we could hold it again, and what it could have. And it turned out, we had another Feels Day sooner than anticipated.
Ayala Malls (via Filipino ReaderCon) tapped us to organize an activity that would bring attention to their Little Free Library project. These are, yup, little libraries set up in certain malls. You can leave a book, you can get a book, you can read it in the mall. Isn’t that perfect?
Our first event was held at TriNoma, on July 23.
Chairs and a stage! It’s a big deal, haha.
Like the previous Feels Day, we sold #romanceclass books. Most of these books aren’t available in bookstores!
The highlight of every Feels Day is the live readings. Herv Alvarez, Salve Villarosa, and new addition Migs Almendras read excerpts from books When Cocoy Became Kikay by C.P. Santi, Only A Kiss by Ines Bautista-Yao, The Bye-Bye Bouquet by Chi Yu Rodriguez, What About Today by Dawn Lanuza, and No Strings Attached (by me!).
(Full video of the reading from my book. I loved.)
So. This happened today. @cuckooforbooks and @alvarezhervin read an excerpt from my YA book #whencocoybecamekikay! Homaygath, the feels! Hihihi. Sadly, this is the best pic I managed to take because apparently kilig and photography skills do not go together. Hahaha! 🙂 thank you, Salve and Herv for bringing Cocoy and Jaime to life, and super duper thanks to @minavesguerra for facilitating this awesome experience! | #FeelsRushIn #Trinoma #romanceclass #livereading #kilig
Salve and Herv.
Salve and Migs.
Loved the audience reactions to them. Loved it! And I totally enjoyed the reading of my own book. Author heart happy.
We were also able to collect these book donations. Thank you, readers, and see you again at the next event!
