SHAME GAME! (Because social media and fandom be cray.)

[Open to PH residents only.]

Surprise! August isn’t over yet. Which means my birthday month isn’t over yet. Which also means #BuwanNgMgaAkdangPinoy isn’t over yet either. (Let’s be real, every month should be Buwan Ng Mga Akdang Pinoy, yes? YES.)

So here’s another giveaway with books that might introduce you to new feelings along with the #romanceclass feelings you already know (basically all the feelings, okay). These stories are scandelicious!

You know the drill, save the image below:

Iris After The Incident by Mina V. Esguerra + Scandalized by Tara Frejas

Post it on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #ShameGameGiveaway, and tag me @chiyurodriguez. The winner will be chosen randomly and announced on Monday, August 22, 2016! Go on, gossip about it. Good luck!



GEEKAWAY! (Because why not call it that, sure.)

[Open to PH residents only.]

I’ve pretty much resolved to do whatever the hell I want this month, because it’s my birthday month… also because I’m turning 30 tomorrow. And when you’re about to turn 30 you tend to want to do random shit. (Or that could just be me.)

We’re also celebrating #BuwanNgMgaAkdangPinoy! There are so many Filipino-Authored books out there that you haven’t seen, many of which can make you feel all the things, and these #romanceclass books might be two of those. So save the image below:

Beginner’s Guide by Six de los Reyes + Finding X by Miles Tan

Post it on Twitter or Instagram with the hasthtag #GeekawayGiveaway, and tag me @chiyurodriguez. The winner will be chosen randomly and announced on Monday, August 15, 2016! Chirp, chirp and cheers to your #innerdyromantic! (I’m so making that a thing.)


COVER REVEAL + GIVEAWAY || The Bye-Bye Bouquet

It was December 2015 when an idea came to me and never left. The Plot Bunny was so strong, I already had a title and a blurb within hours!

Depending on how you look at it, it was either a smart or a really stupid idea to aim for Valentine’s Day release. I only had one month to finish a fifteen thousand word novella.

I still ended up going over by one week but guess what? More than twenty thousand words later, I finished my first ever, full-length romance novella, The Bye-Bye Bouquet. Somebody hold me.

Every month for the past year, like clockwork, Meile Simon has gotten orders at her shop for the same type of bouquet, from the same guy, delivered to twelve different girls. By the third month, she starts to take note.

Warren Leigh likes women. He does. He knows there are too many beautiful women out there just waiting to be plucked by the right guy. But he firmly believes that personal relationships with them must have an expiration date.

When the girl who likes to watch flowers bloom encounters the guy who’s only in it while the fragrance lasts, curiosity gets the best of both of them.

In the midst of intermittent weather, will their connection blossom or wilt?
