Q:If i buy the retribution hard cover version instead of preordering it will it be signed?
Yes, if you buy it right when it first comes out. For more on this, see:
I’ve already preordered! You still can! It’s out on the 4th of Nov!
I’ve been given the green light to tell you something, something I’m excited about and nervous about and something I hope you’ll be very, very happy about. Ready?
I’m going to be signing your preorders.
All of them.
The entire first printing of The Retribution of Mara Dyer.
NOTE TO SELF: Your camera needs your attention
Just got a “new” lens which I acquired when I learned that my mom has an extra one sitting there unused for who knows how long. She of course completely forgot it even existed. After cleaning it, fitting it in, and trying it out a bit; I realized that it’s been about 2 years since I last inspected and noted the camera for anything that needs repairs/replacement/upgrading.
So dear self, if and when you find time (you must find time), you NEED the following:
1. Rubber Eye Piece - it’s obviously missing
2. Hand grip - seriously needs replacement. That mighty bond’s not going to make it indestructible. Plus, it’s rusted.
3. Strap - one with padding please! Remember, the lens this time is heavier!
4. Bag - or get the old one repaired
P.S. You are broke.
Eventually you will be dead, but today you are not.
If someone comes along and shoots an arrow into your heart, it’s fruitless to stand there and yell at the person. It would be much better to turn your attention to the fact that there’s an arrow in your heart.

#VTRinPH Cebu - Reading Print is Still Alive in this Generation
Thanks to National Bookstore, 3 best-selling authors came to the Philippines for 2 days of awesomeness. Of the three authors, I only knew of and read the books byRansom Riggs. However, it was still a treat to get to know Tahereh Mafi and Vaeronica Rossi.
Here’s one-third of the crowd eagerly awaiting for the authors to arrive.
What is amazing about this event is the turn out of the crowd.…
The Whole Introvert Thing - So Much Relate! (A me post)
Articles about introversion and extroversion had been circulating in my Facebook (FB) feed for quite some time now and I have been reading them for the laughs. I would check out the “lists” and assess myself and then laugh off whichever ones I could relate to, which is actually most of what are on the lists. Plus, it’s a great (or not so great) trip down memory lane too. This article by The…

Hey Ransom! See you tomorrow!
Hey Cebuanos and people in Cebu, Philippines! The event’s finally tomorrow! Who’s excited??!?!? Clearly not me. :p
Tahereh Mafi, Ransom Riggs, and Veronica Rossi are all coming for a book signing event and are in fact already here in the Philippines today! People in Manila are probably already enjoying them already. Tomorrow they come to Cebu and I’ve been waiting for the day to arrive…
What are you, really, when you look beyond all images and ideas about yourself, when you look absolutely directly, right here and right now, when you stand completely within yourself and look underneath the mind, underneath the ideas, underneath the images? Are you willing to enter that space, the place that casts no image, no idea? Are you really willing and ready to be that free and open?
