Story Telling

Hey, the year's starting out great already! I got an e-mail from literary editor Sarge Lacuesta saying that my short story "Knowledge" is in the current issue of The Philippine Free Press. Since they're not selling the magazine alongside Figaro and Midi-Libre at my neighborhood presse, if you live in Manila, buy a copy and tell me what you think. C'mon, do it, today's my birthday after all. (Yes, I'm fishing... I love birthday greetings so send me some, please.) And, yes, HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Hey, I went to Fully Booked today and bought (with some difficulty, since the people there didn't seem to be aware of the book) "Phil. Spec. Fiction!" And guess what? It was the last copy! Yay, people actually buy local books by good authors! :-) So, do you get royalties? ;-)

No idea where to get find Phil. Free Press, though.

I just re-sent you the e-mail. Hope you get it this time.

Hi, HAZE! What an idea, but maybe when I know the language much better. Thanks for this and the message you left on YM.

Hey, TOMMP, you've been gone a loooonnnnng time. How are you? Oh, and the velo you're eyeing is strange.

Thank, LEAH, I will do that one of these days.

MAKIS, same to you :)

KATRINA, thanks! Ayan, you just added one centavo to my bank account ;) I think Free Press is found in newspaper kiosks.

GINA, thanks. I feel good about this year.
