I'd love to know if there's any other Filipino writer here. Doesn't matter if you're currently in the Phils or not. :)

Kumusta ka, Mairi? Ako si Enita! Hindi Pinoy ako, pero mga book characters ko ay Pinoy at magsalita na Tagalog. Gusto kong culture at lore ng Pilipinas, kahit ako'y Amerikana. Self-taught sa Tagalog ako, kaya hindi galing, hehe. ^_^'

I hope you could understand all of that! :p

I'm Filipina! It's so amazing to find other writers that came from the same background as you :)

Also, I guess I should also add that I'm looking for a Tagalog beta reader for the above mentioned book. Sooooo....if anyone is interested in helping me out with it, I'd surely appreciate it. :3

Mabuhay!

Hello!

About time I opened up something from Philippines. Thought there would be more of us, but the only one I saw was a guy that goes by the name of Geraldine, last activity was 2007, so, yeah.

Since my first day here, I've been promoting this place to all my writer friends, sad none of them visits.

Anyway, yeah, hi and all and just that.=D

Didn't know my topic merged. Thanks a lot!

Hello Mark! Good to meet you man. I'm not married yet, but will be soon once I've earned enough.=)

Any more kababayan around?

Hi all. My friend in the Philippines is working with me on the promotion of my second e-book, Why Men are From Earth and Women are not from Venus. She would be happy and excited to know I found you here first!

So... what are you guys writing about? Stories like Nick Joaquin or F. Sionil Jose? Or maybe Ricky Lee, who writes Tagalog epic fantasies?

... Something like Tiktik Chronicles?

Hi Mairi - not Filipino, but I'm married to a Filipina, and live currently in Cebu City. Lovely country here, and wonderful people too - I feel blessed to be able to experience your country. Good luck in all your writing endeavors!

I'm an American-born Filipina. In fact, I have a MG book coming out next year that features a Filipino main character! The editors LOVED seeing a submission with a Filipino MC. I think it was the catalyst for my two-book deal.

Find me online and on FB! :) And welcome!

Hi!

I was so excited to see this thread. I honestly thought I was the only one! LOL. I am a Filipina and living the Philippines. Great to know I have fellow FIlipinos here :).

I felt the same thing Gell. Always nice to see a kababayan here, especially knowing they're in Philippines.

Hi! Congratulations for the book deal! And it's awesome you have a Filipino MC. Honestly, I think that would initially take a lot of guts to query so kudos to you! :)

Hey mga kababayan! I'm Chiqui, mostly Filipino with a tiny hint of Chinese lol. What's up?

Right now I'm writing (or at least trying to write) a YA Steampunk series with a Filipina heroine. It's been really difficult, especially with all the history research!

Haven't written anything in Philippine settings yet. But I do have a couple of projects outlined. One of them is a horror story. Our folklore provides such rich culture about it, it's so hard not to at least try to write about them.

He-hey! Kamusta, mga kabayan! (Ang formal eh, no?) Glad to see fellow Filipinos in forums like these. :)

Currently living in Manila.
