Finoy Foodies - June Book Discussion
Because we love food second to books (order of importance may change depending on time of day), the Flippers will tackle a culinary theme this June. To narrow down the countless choices of books, we zoom in on Filipino food.
See you all
on June 20, 2009. Saturday. 2PM
at Katre Mediterranean Restaurant, 103 Dr. Lascano St. Brgy. Laging Handa, Quezon City

Dear Johanna: I am an author from Massachusetts. After years of rejection slips, I had my debut novel HUNTING THE KING published last year. The publication of a novel by a small independent press requires a lot of independent promotion, too. As part of that promotion I try reaching out to people who might have an interest in HUNTING, which is a page-turning thriller. The main character is Molly O’Dwyer. When Molly was five years old, she witnessed her mother die in a fire that Molly believes she set. After her mother’s death, she is raised on the campus of a Jesuit college. Thirty years later, she is an archaeologist recruited to join an expedition into war torn Iraq. What lies buried beneath the sands of ancient Babylon that would have an international team of scientists anxious to risk their lives? A passionate scientist herself, a seeker of truth, Molly can’t resist the call. Yet, still a loyal Catholic, she can’t help but fear the consequences of this momentous dig. ForeWord Magazine said, ‘Given such an auspicious debut, the sequel can’t come soon enough.’ If you have the time, check out the explosive YouTube book trailer for HUNTING THE KING. Please let me know if you have an interest. Thank you.
i dont. mind, that is, the 42 part.
that means you have more experience. :)
and you can give me some great book ideas. though mine, compared to yours- are probably more teenish, but hey, everyone likes different books.
I'll try to tone down the im talk when I'm talking to you, if you want me to. because i know some people get annoyed by it, ecspecially my parents. :)
do you only like reading? or do you write 2?
because i like to write, maybe we have that in common. :D
