back from the un-dead + publication news

isa lang ang masasabi ko: mahirap magkasakit.

kakagaling ko lang sa isang linggong pahinga ng utak at katawan. pareho silang nadale. i guess yan ang pa-hapinuyir sa akin ng kalawakan. kelangang mag-detox to pave way for new stuff na malalanghap whether voluntarily or involuntarily...

dami ko tuloy na-miss. anj, hope that videoke went well. bubbles kapatid, hope you had a nice painum sa pinyahan! highschool peeps, hope you had fun at hereford!

anyway, meron pa naman sa 26th. atak tayo mga byanakerz ha. dyke dialogues 3. hope to see you there. same spot G spot hehe. chos.

madaming exciting publication news pero saka na lang yun.

hm, on second thought, sige na nga!

BUY THE BOOK! BUY T
HE BOOK! BUY THE BOOK!

did you know that that was the name of the bookstore owned by ellen degeneres' character sa original ELLEN sitcom? yes, the one where she came out. natutuwa ako kasi yun ang name ng store: buy the book. funny.


anyway, yeah, buy this:

it's called SAWI: FUNNY ESSAYS, STORIES AND POEMS ON ALL KINDS OF HEARTBREAK.

it's edited by 3 atene
o-connected people. sobrang ten thousand years ago na ito pero last 2007 lang lumabas. well, such is the life sa literary publishing dito sa pinas.

i contributed one short story here in english, isang produkto pa ng CW classes ko sa MA dati kay mam jing hidalgo.

oh yeah, milflores publishing nga pala ang naglabas nito. di ko akalain na sila ang maglalabas . hapi naman.
i have yet to get my free copies, though, but i've seen the insides already.






okay ito pa:


now this one i like. it's flash fiction kasi e, or sudden fiction as we sometimes call it. in filipino, it's called dagli. actually, sa dami ng contributors, the editor, vince groyon, decided to come out with two volumes, one in english and filipino yung isa. english ang sinumite ko kaya dito ako na-belong, sa VERY SHORT STORIES FOR HARRIED READERS.

the story i have here is the product naman of the online writers' workshop namin dati nina cecilia manguerra bra
inard and a host of other fil-something writers na nakakalat sa buong mundo, like nadine sarreal in singapore, veronica montes in the US and others.

again, milflores ang naglabas nito. hapi!
