Hello, you guys!
I was so so late posting this recap. It's been a week since the book launch happened and I was so not happy about that week. Exams happened. It was horrifying. It was so unexpected. It was hell! I never intended to fall asleep while reviewing. The frigging thesis happened (and to tell you guys, I am so beyond happy that it was done!). I can't tell you more but how miserable I was during that week and the week before that. I was a living zombie. Imagine not sleeping for the whole week. I was that fantastic and I feel so so alive (pun intended!). Now, I have so much of catching up to do. Read books, read books, blog about it, let others know how awesome it is.
Anyway, Kate's book, TIL DEATH. So this amazing book launch happened 15th of March at National Bookstore Glorietta 1 in Makati. There were FREE FOODS! I'm sorry, I'm a big fan of free foods and free tastes, but when you first get to meet me, I'm a very shy/demure kind-of-person. But that usually lasts for the first five minutes of talking to me. So yeah, I'm lying. I don't normally talk during first meetings. Talk about socially awkward.
Sixteen-year old Selena Fallon is a dreamer. Not a day-dreamer, but an I-see-the-future kind of dreamer. Normally this is not a problem as she has gotten pretty good at keeping her weird card hidden from everyone in her small town. Except from her best friend Kyle and her grandparents, of course. But when Selena dreams of her own rather bloody death, things get a little too freaky even for her.
Enter Dillan Sloan. Selena has seen the new guy in a different dream, and he is even more droolworthy in person. Beyond the piercing blue eyes and tousled dark hair, there is something else that draws her to him. Something…electric. Unfortunately, Dillan makes it more than clear that he does not feel the same. They just met, so why would he act like he hates her?
When Dillan and Selena are forced together one weekend to work on a school project, Selena prepares to be ignored as usual. But when she stumbles across a few undead in the backyard, Dillan comes to her rescue and reveals a whole lot more. Not only is he part of a society that hunts otherworldly creatures…she is too. And she is being targeted by a force bigger and darker than anything she ever imagined. Despite her death dream, Selena is not going to give up easy, especially when she discovers that Dillan might not actually hate her after all.
The event was opened and hosted by Mina V. Esguerra
Followed by the opening message from Kate's Friend Lois (I think that's how it's spelled)
And the lovely Kate in her dashing dress, thanking everyone who came and joined her.
There's free food, mind you ((=
Then came the talk. It was smart, really. Kate talked about writing and how she had her books published.
Kate and me after she signed my book/s.
