Last September 20, 2013 (Friday), I was surprised when my Mom texted me about a package which arrived for me at home. As I am staying in an apartment near my school during weekdays, I had to wait for a day before I could get my
When I finally got the package, I also had to explain to my Mom that it was from a Filipino author from Manila whom I helped out with her book marketing. *sweat* *sweat*
Actually, even though I've been book-blogging for a little less than a year now, my Mom has yet to know about it. She just thinks I'm always working on the computer. She doesn't know that I have a book blog and I actually arrange blog tours for authors.
And it's not that I'm keeping it a secret from her. It's just that it's a little hard to explain to my Mom what I actually do online. She just recently learned to use Facebook. I had to tutor her for weeks and had to leave detailed instructions on how to log into her Facebook and Email. Hee! But I'm so proud of my Mom. She and Dad exchange emails everyday! Dare I say techie?!
I got a paperback copy of Chrissie Peria's first book All's Fair in Blog and War! I also received three bookmarks, a postcard, a celphone charm and CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES WITH BACON BITS!!! GENIUS!!!
I mean, CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES WITH BACON!!! It's like all the goodness in the world was poured into a compact cookie for a tiny taste of heaven! (I'm exaggerating, but you get what I mean, right? RIGHT?!)
I wanted to post a picture of the cookies, but my sister snatched one before I could take a picture. We had to wrestle over one cookie, and before I knew it, all of them were devoured. haha!
Oh, and did I mention that Chrissie also signed my paperback copy? It's my first signed paperback copy EVER!! I'm just so happy to receive it that I feel like puking rainbows! =) Thank you so much, Chrissie! You really made me so happy!
And if you haven't yet, please do get a copy of All's Fair in Blog and War on Amazon! Just click on that tiny book cover below! =)
It will entertain you, cheer you up, make you crave for egg tarts, and will bring out that brave daredevil inside of you! Promise! =)
