The launch of the #EnlightenmentBlogTour!

Hello guys, gals, and nonbinary pals! Welcome to the launch of the #EnlightenmentBlogTour! I’m very excited to be bringing you this book today because it involves one of my favorite subjects ever: Philippine myths and legends.

This shit is scary af and does not get nearly enough attention, IMO! I have been hollering for the use of Philippine myths and legends in fantasy fiction for the longest time, so I practically jumped at the chance to read this book and host this blog tour!

Featuring a Fil-Am teenaged girl who discovers her unique heritage, a warrior from a centuries-old clan devoted to keeping the peace, and a cast of characters that every Filipino reader can relate to and will love, Enlightenment introduces us to a universe that, in my opinion, needs to be explored by more authors and readers.

Read on to know more about the book and the author!

#EverlastingNoraPH: The launch of the Everlasting Nora blog tour!

My hiatus has ended, y’all! Are you excited to have me back? 😉

If you’ve been following me for a while, then you know that I’m all about promoting Filipino authors and books. When I heard that there were a good chunk of 2018 and 2019 traditionally-published releases were by Filipino authors, I was so excited. And when I found out that one of those releases was set right here in Manila, I knew I had to have it.

I fell so much in love with this book that I just thought the world has to know about it! And so I decided to start my very first ever blog tour (ahhhhhh?!!) to help promote Everlasting Nora!
