Day of cool

Yay! My Imaginary Ex is out now.

Upon quick browsing, I say this: I love what they’ve done with it. The cover, the little icon-type illustrations inside (I don’t know what they’re called), the typeface, the paper even.

So far the process of getting a book published has been fun, if a little nerve-wracking. Everyone should try it. πŸ™‚

    Are there people in the book who would make me go, "Kilala ko yata to-its?"

    No real people! Though one of the chapters was sort of a story I wrote in college, so maybe there'll be something there, but di sadya.

    Hey great book. I&#39;m not usually that interested in reading romantic stuff but I find your book a nice change from the usual cheesy things I see. This is the first Summit book I read because I needed to make a review of a Filipino written book for my writing class and I love it! I&#39;ll be buying other Summit books as well. Congrats…^_^

    Man, I&#39;m male and I buy chicklit just so I can learn the cadence of language but this book really beats all the books I bought from Summit. I&#39;ve read this book many times and it&#39;s one of those good-feel kilig type of stories that you&#39;d really read until it&#39;s all dog-eared. Worth every peso indeed.
