If you are a book nerd living in the Philippines, you still probably have hangovers from the most recent book signing events of authors, Jenny Han and Stephanie Perkins. Lucky you, if you were able to attend. Meanwhile, me is still a mourning a bit for not being able to see them but at least my friend got my books signed.
Anyway, in case you missed the news, more and more authors are coming to visit the Philippines. It’s so thrilling that the other authors that we all absolutely adore know of our existence. Lol. Anyway, here are the authors who are confirmed/rumored to do book signings in PH:
1. Alex London
Alex London is the author of the dystopian novels entitled, Proxy and Guardian. National Book Store will be organizing the event. It will be on August 30, 2014 (2 PM) at SM Aura. Registration for the said event will start at 10 AM. Few more days to go!
2. Jennifer Smith and Lissa Price
September will be indeed the month of the book nerds in the Philippines. Aside from the Manila International Book Fair, two authors, Jennifer Smith and Lissa Price will come visit us. Personally, Jennifer Smith is my one of my favorite authors. I can’t wait to meet her in person. Her famous novels are The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, This is What Happy Looks Like, and The Geography of You and Me. On the other hand, I haven’t read Lissa Price’s novels yet but I’ll try! Her well-known novels are Starters and Enders. Their book signing event will occur on September 19 (SM Cebu, at 6 PM), September 20 (SM Aura, at 2 PM), and September 21 (MIBF SMX Convention Center, at 4 PM). If you are going to attend on the 21st, make sure you come early since only 200 people will be accommodated.
3. Madeleine Roux
There are also rumors going around that Madeleine Roux, the author of Asylum, will also come sometime in October. There are no official announcements yet though!
4. Marie Lu
Another beloved author by many Filipinos is Marie Lu. She is the best-selling author of the dystopian series, Legend. She’ll be coming this fall..probably on November if ever? I’m guessing her event will be held by National Book Store.
5. Colleen Hoover, Tina Reber and Tarryn Fisher
Are you an avid New Adult reader? I think you are also looking forward to meet these three great authors. Earlier this July, Colleen Hoover posted a status on Facebook about a possible visit to Philippines in 2015. Plus, it looks like Tarryn Fisher (Love me with lies series & Mud Vein) and Tina Reber (Love Unscripted) will come too! Oh pretty please, I hope the Atria Indie authors will have a tour here!
6. E. Lockhart
And the latest addition to the long list of authors who’ll visit Philippines is E. Lockhart. She wrote We Were Liars which really got a lot of hype from the YA readers. She’s coming to visit us on March 2015. I’m so stoked!!!
See? It’s a long long list after all. It’s really nice to have authors coming and visiting us here. I hope more and more of them will come. 🙂 Thank you so much book gods and goddesses!
