Last year I had the good fortune of being anthologized twice. The first book came out in December while the second book will come out in March, I think. My poems were selected for these anthologies. As for my fiction, my short story was included in the third installment of Ladlad, the gay-themed anthology edited by Danton Remoto and J Neil Garcia.


This year, I am again part of an anthology for new adults, an emerging market for readers. It is essentially a romance anthology, set in a fictional high school for the arts. Of course, my story is gay-themed, and its inclusion not only adds to the diversity in the anthology itself but also reflects the reality in many high schools. I am thankful to the editor, Mina Esguerra, for recognizing this.


So, if you happen to be around the Ayala Museum on February 8, Saturday, drop by the lobby for the launching of the book. We are also celebrating the anniversary of the Romance Writing Class conducted by Mina. We cannot sell books at the party, but everyone’s #romanceclass books will be displayed there, along with the Luna East Anthology. You can still purchase them as long as you pay in advance, or outside the museum premises. Guests will also get complimentary passes to the museum! Just come earlier.

You can order the Luna East Anthology in advance HERE.

See you there!
