#BuwanNgAkdangPinoy: Mga May-Akda sa #BuqoYA 1-Taking Chances

(MonthofFilipinoLiterature: The Authors of BuqoYA 1 – Taking Chances)

Sa buqoYA nagsimula ang aking paglalakbay bilang isang ganap na manunulat. datapwat meron na ako nailimbag na isang eBook,  ang When Fate Speaks Big Time, dito ako nakilala nang husto. Kaya sobra ang pasasalamat ko kay Mina dahil siya ang ginamit ng Panginoon para magawa ko ang nilaan ng Panginoon para sa akin, ang maging may-akda.

(BuqoYA started my journey on being a full-pledge writer. Although I had a published book that time, When Fate Speaks Big Time, it boosted my career more. I want to thank Mina because she is the one God uses to fulfill my destiny in being an author.)

TRIVIA: ANG BUQOYA 1 AUTHORS LANG ANG COMPLETE ATTENDANCE NUNG LAUNCH. AHAHA. (During the book launch, BuqoYA 1 AUTHORS were the only group who were complete.)

Nung nalaman na namin na kaming 6 ang magkakasama, natatandaan ko na nagpaplan kaming 6 kung anu ang isusuuot at ibibigay namin sa bawat bibili ng aming libro Sa TWITTER. Meron pa kaming loot bags na panay Candy ang laman. ahaha!

(When the 6 authors knew that we were grouped together, i rememberm we planned on what to wear and what to give to our buyers. The conversation is on Twitter. We also have loot bags full of candies.)

When she’s not writing, she’s probably thinking of what to write about next.

Ako to! haha… (This is me!)


Six de los Reyes

Six de los Reyes has been reading and making up stories for as far as she can remember. In fifth grade, she learned to wield dragons and phoenixes through written word. Her day job has absolutely nothing to do with creative writing, and she wishes it did.
Sobrang proud ako dyan kay Six, lalo na ngayon na nakikilala na sya internationally. I could say na si Six yung nagbasa nung excerpt ko. (sobra bait nya talaga!) kaya love ko yan. Naks!
(I am so proud of Six especially now that she is starting to make her name known internationally. I could say that Six read my excerpt. (she’s really nice!) That’s why i love her!)

Kaye Dee

Some people say actions speak louder than words. But actions are temporary. Words are forever.
Nakita ko si Kaye if i am not mistaken dun sa last na klase ng buqoYA. Sobrang bait nya nung maging friend ko na sya sa Twitter lalo na nung magkita kami in person. 🙂  
(I met Kaye during the last class of BuqoYA. She has been nice to me when we became friends on Twiitter. Especially when I met her in person!)
