8Letters Anthologies https://8lettersbooks.com/8letters-anthologies/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=8letters-anthologies Sat, 12 Oct 2019 15:24:11 +0000 http://8lettersbooks.com/?page_id=852 We love discovering new talents and giving space to their creations. In 8Letters anthologies, newbie or seasoned writers are all welcome to submit their works. Whether you write in English or Filipino, depending on the theme, your story has a chance of being picked to be included in our book.

Here are some of the anthologies we have

New Beginnings

How does it feel to have a young heart – experiencing everything for the first time when spirits are wild and free?

In this collection of eleven short stories in English and Filipino, let us take you to the world of the young, where we experience falling in love despite the fear of rejection; living for and following our grandest dreams despite the small chance; going against the flow even when they say we can’t; fighting our battles even the we have to face it alone. Our inexperience, our shortcomings, our misgivings, our courage never comes short. There will always be hope. There will always be a new beginning.

Read more about it here


Out of This World

No matter who they are, no matter what they are, there will always be someone, somewhere, who will be there for you, always. Whether they are the ghosts of the people you’ve loved, a prince, a princess or a queen from a faraway kingdom, an angel and a demon who are more than willing to stay with you until the end of time, no matter what form they take, their love for you will always be the same. Perhaps, even more, their love will not compare to ordinary humans, for their love is out of this world.


Engkwentro: Tales of the Strange & Supernatural

There’s something special about Padua

Story 1: All Lisa wants is to get into Padua University. What she didn’t expect is fighting aswangs while trying not to fail her subjects.

Story 2: Amir, a Muslim, is conflicted with his attraction to Ashton because of his conservative upbringing. There’s another problem – Ashton is not what Amir thinks he is.

Story 3: Ria has a secret rendezvous with her best friend every dawn. But things are starting to get complicated when she realizes she is falling in love with Hiwaga, the kapre who is living in the Campus’ banyan tree.

Story 4: Tim has been hearing strange voices that led him to discover Michael’s secret. The two had a falling out two summers ago. When something sinister befalls Tim’s new best friend, they have to put it behind, and work together to fight evil.

Story 5: A tikbalang chooses Elora Caylao to be his bride. She has been given three months to prepare herself to join him in his world. How can she even prepare herself to be the wife of a creature she greatly fears?


Summer Dreams

Dreams can be tricky.

They can be beautiful where you can choose to sleep and continue the fantasy; or wake up and chase after them in the real world. They could be nightmares – the wicked ones that haunt you and keep you up all night, sometimes even when you are awake because it is the reality you wish you could wake up from but won’t.

Zodiac Chronicles: Gemini, Tales of Siblings

How can you far can you go for the sake of your brother? What sacrifices can you make for your sister? You can be separated through different circumstances, but there’s more to blood being thicker than water… follow our stories and find out just how strong and unbreakable this sibling bond is.

Taal Writer’s Retreat https://8lettersbooks.com/taal-writers-retreat/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=taal-writers-retreat https://8lettersbooks.com/taal-writers-retreat/#respond Sun, 29 Apr 2018 13:40:23 +0000 http://8lettersbooks.com/?p=317 The idea of a writer’s retreat started a year ago. It was supposed to last for a week at least where we would do nothing, but write. That turned out to be an ambitious task because not only will it costs us a lot of money or have the difficulty to find interested aspiring writers, the allocated time would not be enough given that we also had the LitFest and the workshop at CCP.

We knew we had to find a location that feels distant, and yet still easily accessible from Manila. We thought of Tagaytay, but when we were researching, another type of hotel came up, a heritage town not far from the Taal Volcano. It is further south facing Balayan Bay. We googled the place and found out that it is a heritage town – just like the one in Vigan. Taal is perfect!

The day had arrived, and the plan of taking a bus from the chaotic Cubao bus station worked out. It was a four-hours drive, so when we left at 7, we arrived at around 11 am. We were in high spirits as we found ourselves on a tricycle into the heritage town. We were greeted with colorful banderitas which I supposed would be used for a fiesta a week later. There were no troubles finding our hotel as it was known well enough by the tricycle drivers.

IMG_1988

We were greeted by the friendly hotel staff with cold, blue-colored drinks. And as my eyes gazed around in the Spanish-American-Colonial bahay-na-bato style, I fell in love right away. With its huge windows letting all the sunlight and April breeze through, and white walls with brown frames embraced with the right amount of beautiful paintings, I was enthralled.

After inhaling the ambiance of our hotel, we started to explore the town. Our stops were as follows:

  • Galleria De Taal
  • Tampuhan Cafe for lunch
  • Marcella Agoncillo Museum
  • Leon and Gallicano Apacible Museum
  • Taal Basilica

Each museum had their own tour guide who went with us from room to room, explaining the importance of each areas. Stories from the past were told in a professional manner and we certainly learned a lot. I never felt so inspired as I walked along the corridors while sweat tickled my back.

IMG_1923

I still remember looking at the window and seeing the Philippine flag dancing along the wind, as if welcoming us.

As the sun was setting, we sat down in the garden of our hotel with papers, pens, and pizza. We wrote stories, and then we gave each other constructive criticisms. I could sense the pressure and excitement at the same time as the clock ticked. At 8 pm, we were hungry and decided to go out in the streets and look for something to eat.

In between the places that we visited, and the stories that we wrote, we all became friends. 8Letters created an environment where we all had fun, but at the same time, a possibility to work onto something in the future. We are actually working on a Taal anthology, which we hope to share with you in the future, so stay tuned. Also, this won’t be the first and the last writer’s retreat. We’ll organize another one this year!

The 8Letters LitFest https://8lettersbooks.com/the-8letters-litfest/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=the-8letters-litfest https://8lettersbooks.com/the-8letters-litfest/#respond Sat, 24 Feb 2018 16:36:51 +0000 https://8lettersbooks.wordpress.com/?p=289 We love celebrating books, especially self-published books where writing it is only twenty percent of the job. As an indie writer, you also have to cover editing, formatting, layouts, marketing, so on and forth. You may have a team working with you, but the writer him or herself is also the director. Launching a book made from sweat, tears, thousand cups of caffeine, means you are near the end of this ambitious project.

Join us as we introduce the newest indie books in and around Manila. Here you will meet the authors, get your books signed, and enjoy the food from Jess & Pat’s. It will be on April 15, that’s a Sunday from 2 – 6 pm. Mark your calendars and follow the event page here: http://bit.ly/2EJzbNO

Indie Books at MIBF 2017 https://8lettersbooks.com/indie-books-at-mibf-2017/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=indie-books-at-mibf-2017 https://8lettersbooks.com/indie-books-at-mibf-2017/#respond Thu, 12 Oct 2017 14:30:57 +0000 https://8lettersbooks.wordpress.com/?p=175 We were greeted with strong winds and non-stop raining on the day we were supposed to ingress our products to the SMX Convention Centre. That means that while our hands were filled with boxes of books, our umbrellas were being blown out of proportion and soon, it ended up in the bin. The experiences we had for next five days only proved what it takes to be an indie writer. I thought I had played all the roles before – writer, editor, seller, accounting, book cover designer, etc. But I forgot a lot of other things such as the delivery man, inventory personnel, salesperson for the whole five days who opens and closes the shop. It was a new list of tasks at the book fair.

Blog 11.JPG

This is our representative, Jez who helped us big time. He was the best person for the job. And by the way, he is also a poet! A very talented man! The day of the ingress was chaos, but we’re glad we managed to fix everything to this! See photo below.

blog 12.JPG

Our booth was located in front of the stage where events were held. On our first day, we saw and heard Boy Abunda’s talk about reading books. He is a famous host in the country, so I was really surprised and delighted.

There were a lot of other fangirl-ing moments, including Rocco Nacino and Joross Gamboa. Paulo Avelino was also there to promote Ang Larawan, a book written by Nick Joaquin that was turned into a movie. The best fangirl-ing moments for me was when I met Dean Frances Alfar, Bebang Siy and Eros Atalia promoting their newly translated book, Ang Manggagaway. I bought my copy and even had them signed it. Ah, pure bliss!

I was also overjoyed when people dropped by our booth and asked what we do. And when they learned that we are indie, they would either get our contacts or buy our books. Sometimes they’d do both because they also want to learn how to self-publish. Some thought the idea was fresh and I’d see the amusement in their faces. n the last day, Porcupine Strongwill was there to sign her books, Forgotten Things to Say and Angelic Conflict. On the last day, Porcupine Strongwill was there to sign her books,
Forgotten Things to Say and Angelic Conflict.

After five days of selling our books, we were absolutely exhausted. But I reminded myself that this has been my goal from the beginning – to be at the MIBF not just as a reader, but also as an author. A month ago, my dream came true because I worked hard for it. The book fair has opened a lot of other opportunities for 8Letters, and if you’d ask us if we’ll do it again? We’ll be very happy to!

Love lots,

New Books (April 2017) https://8lettersbooks.com/new-books-april-2017/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=new-books-april-2017 https://8lettersbooks.com/new-books-april-2017/#respond Sat, 29 Jul 2017 02:40:30 +0000 https://8lettersbooks.wordpress.com/?p=79 image

Last April 1, we celebrated the launch of two new books by 8Letters. The first one was written by my partner Marigold Uy, an interactive notebook entitled 8Letters Psychic Research – The Cursed School. Here you are provided with a preliminary plot and default characters. You can then, add your character and continue the story on the 8-page space to write in every chapter.

The goal behind this interactive notebook is to motivate people to write and to have fun while doing so. Here are some photos where Al Joseph of Lapis sa Kalye interviewing Marigold.

An Excerpt: 

You first learned about them not through social media. You expected they would be on Facebook, bragging about how many spirits they’ve exorcised or how they could see the future, like most scammers would claim to make them seem that they’re legit.

Contrary to that, you heard about 8LETTERS Psychic Research through a neighbor who claimed they exorcised a malicious spirit in their house. You let the old woman share her story, unbelieving at first but eventually realized that the group might be legitimate after all.

Even as someone who has the ability to sense spirits, you were hesitant to believe that there was actually a weird team of ‘psychics’. And here in Manila even.

The second book is an anthology of memoirs by various of writers including me. The book entitled Ekspedisyon – Biyahe sa Nakaraan started from an online workshop I organized where I asked three mentors who are expert in writing creative non-fiction. Out of 40 students, only 7 finished their manuscripts. One of them was Christian Loid Valenzuela with his memoir entitled Amor Infinitus. He came all the way from Olongapo to Parañaque! On his memoir, he wrote about the death of his grandmother and his relationship with his parents.

An Excerpt:

Natapos ang isang oras na panunood ko ngunit hindi pa rin lumalabas ng banyo ang aking lola. Akala ko ba nais niyang ng maaga upang marami siyang maitulong sa paggawa ng kalapati? Excited nga siyang suotin ang bago nilang uniporme na makukuha niya pagkatapos nilang gawin ang nasabing replika.

“Anong oras na? Umalis na ba si nanay?” tanong sa akin ng aking tiyahin na nanggaling sa likuran ng aming bahay. Katatapos niya lamang maglaba no’n.

“Hindi pa. Ni hindi pa nga siya lumalabas mula sa banyo, e,” sagot ko naman. Kung kaya’t agad naming tinungo ang banyo upang sabihin sa aking lola na malapit na siyang mahuli sa takdang oras ng pakikipagkita niya sa mga gagawa ng kalapati.

Nakailang katok kami pero walang sumasagot mula sa loob ng palikuran. Tanging ang lagaslas lamang ng tubig mula sa gripo ang aming naririnig. Kinabahan na kami dahil do’n. Puwersahan naming binuksan ang pinto ng banyo.

Jonalyn Mencias’ memoir entitled Mga Lihim ng Kahapon is about her relationship with his father, who was very strict while she was growing up. It entails how it affected her perception in life, and the changes to the whole family over the years.

An Excerpt:

LAGI AKONG NAPAPALO noon ng aking tatay dahil magagalitin siya, dahil dito hagulgol naman akong umiiyak at pinapangakong di na uulitin ang pagkakamaling nagawa. Sabi nga ng aking ina, ako raw ang pinakamakulit sa aming magkakapatid kaya lagi akong napapagalitan at namumura ng aking tatay. Iba ang pagdidisplina niya sa amin na laging may kaakibat na pamalo. Gusto lang daw ni tatay, sabi ni nanay, na lumaki kaming may paggalang at disiplina sa sarili, dahil nga siguro sa puro kami mga babae at kailangan protektahan nang mabuti at bantayan.

Lagi siyang may tsinelas na handang ipamalo sa amin.

The memoir entitled Musikera by Raine Rillera tells the story about her love of music, the struggles how she started the band and the adventures of playing while studying.

An Excerpt: 

The first “band” I played in was an all-girl acoustic group. After playing one gig in school, the girls and I had a falling out with each other and we never got together again to play.Then there was the 4-piece ensemble that couldn’t get out of the so-called garage phase. After that nameless band died a natural death, the cute drummer invited me to play rhythm guitar for his other band. They called themselves “Empty Minds,” which, looking back now, should have been a clear sign for me to go running in the opposite direction. One studio session with them confirmed my suspicion that it was, indeed, a pogi rock band. To this day, I don’t know whether I should be flattered or offended that they had deemed me pogi enough to be in their band.

Afterthat spate of failed band attempts, I was starting to feel jaded. Among all the people I had played with so far, I hadn’t felt that connection, that undeniable gravitational pull of a Music Bond. Putting together the perfect band was a lot like looking for Mr. Right, except I waslooking for three—or more —of him. I had no idea where to find the perfect bandmates, but more importantly, I began to doubt they existed at all. Were they all just rock fairy tales, fueled by my naïve adoration for bands such as Led Zeppelin, The Beatles and Dream Theater whose musical minds seemed to fit each other’s like a jigsaw puzzle?

Even her fashion states that she is a true hearted musician! And have I mentioned she came all the way from Baguio?

image

I (Cindy Dela Cruz) also wrote my fair share of memoirs entitled Unang Halik. Here, I wrote about my travels in life, reminiscing how I ended where I am. Basically it was about the last ten years of my life, right after my 18th birthday where I needed to fly to Hong Kong to help with the family’s financing, and how I decided to get in a secret marriage.

An Excerpt:

UNA KONG NAKILALA si Raymart nang naging magkaklase kami nung grade 4, taong 1999. Isa siya sa mga naunang crush ko kasi ang puti at ang tangkad niya. Nacu-cute- an ako sa kanya, isang paghanga na hindi nagtagal. Katulad ng iba kong naging crush ay tumagal lang ito ng tatlong buwan. Nakita ko na kasi agad ang kapintasan niya. Masyado siyang maputi kumpara sa kayumangging balat ko. Tapos, lagi pa siyang late sa school bus. Kung ano ang kinaaga ng paggising ko dahil ako ang unang sinusundo ng schoolbus, mukhang saka pa lang siya nagigising sa pagkakatulog sa oras na siya na ang sinusundo. Naiinis na ang mga ka-schoolbus namin dahil male- late na kami dahil sa kanya. Tapos papasok siya sa bus na puno ng pulbo ang leeg at may hawak pang pandesal. Ew, pampered. Turn off. Hindi ko na nga siya crush.

Dalawang taon pa kaming naging magka-schoolbus at naging mabuting magkaibigan nga kami. Tinutulungan niya ako sa paghila ng stroller kong bag, habang ako naman ay pinagtatanggol siya sa mga nang-aasar sa kanya.

There were three other authors who couldn’t make it. Two were in overseas: Analy Midsapak and Suzi Oliva; Then Gab Barrantes who lives in Lucena.

Mystic Brew Philippines where the book launch was held, created a cozy environment for our books and visitors. Their food was great too, local pinky food with new twists!

Indie Publishing 101 https://8lettersbooks.com/indie-publishing-10/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=indie-publishing-10 https://8lettersbooks.com/indie-publishing-10/#respond Sat, 29 Jul 2017 02:32:20 +0000 https://8lettersbooks.wordpress.com/?p=71

Where do I begin?

Perhaps I should start with my goal ten years ago. I always enjoyed writing and reading my own stories when I was younger. For me, it seemed I was recording my thoughts and my imaginations, and these fictitious characters in my head. I hoped people would read what I wrote, but I didn’t have the courage back then. I didn’t think I wanted to be so open to the world; I am afraid people would laugh at it, judged my works and say it is not good enough. I kept it as a secret, and so notebooks filled with my stories written over the summer were only read by my younger sister, and then they would all be stashed away, hidden where no one else could find them. I wrote love stories and witch stuff, some poems or things that happened to me every day. There were so many thoughts in my head and writing them down was therapeutic. I later found out that, should I invest more time polishing my stories and essays, I actually can let the world to read it, and I won’t feel that alone anymore. Until today, I believe that sharing my stories helped me a lot to be a better person by boosting my confidence, helping me to articulate my thoughts, having a stand and making friends.

When I started publishing my works online, there were no rules to follow, and I didn’t know whether I was doing the right thing the right way. We got a page with a thousand readers who sent us feedbacks. We all tried submitting our manuscripts to publishing companies, but they were rejected, so we gave that up. Besides, we don’t want to be tied to a contract where we basically sell the rights of our work of art. We decided to publish our book. No one else in our radar had done it, so there was no one to ask. We did everything ourselves. What do we need to produce this book and make it a hit? Making it a hit means people will talk about it and buy it. That was a big question mark, and you can say, we tried all different ways, all possible channels. It worked. We sold more or less 300 copies in 3 months. Earning from what you have written is a good sign. It means people read your work; they are interested in you and stories. Therefore there is a higher chance of them buying your next book. Your imagination now has a VALUE, people think your stories and what you have to say are worth their time and money.

The rest is history, but the lessons we learned remains. Nowadays, a lot of author friends who have existing readership had struggled to sell even ten copies. Writers thought if they keep on writing and announcing it on social media, they would eventually turn it into sales. They failed taking other essential steps to make their book successful. Here are two of the most overlooked steps in indie-publishing.

1. Stephen Kings wrote in his memoir entitled On Writing, that once he finished a manuscript, he would show it to his wife and ask for her comments. Her wife is one of his most trusted person in the world, and whose comments he valued a lot.  He would listen to her comments and criticisms and discuss the changes he would do. Having another set of eyes to read your work without bias is a big help. These people can spot mistakes and inconsistencies you may have missed. He also mentioned letting the manuscript sit for a while, let it breathe for a few months, then read it again, this time with a fresh perception where he can spot his errors. If you do not have the time, there is always the option of getting an editor. An editor is who you paid to review and edit your manuscript.

 

2. This is marketing your book even if your MS isn’t finished yet. You can talk about your characters, and the settings, and what makes them special yet relatable. You can also post about the creative process you are going through and why people should be excited about the finished product like you do. You create hashtags so people can search for it easily. Create attractive graphics and videos relevant to your book. Though try not to do it every day, again to give space and to make your art breathe and have people digest so they will not be drowned with so much information. Post enough that can create anticipation, so when your book officially comes out, readers who have been invested in the free content you were sharing, they would want to buy the finished product.

Step 1 & 2 already sounds a lot of work, and actually, there are more things you need to do, that you need to be physically, emotionally and financially ready for this BIG PROJECT. You need all the guts in you in this journey of getting your book out there. Yes, it is worth it and truly rewarding.

If you are interested in the process of indie publishing in the Philippines, we have an event on April 2 in Diligence Cafe, Manila where we invited speakers who managed to get their indie published books into bookstores. You can sign up here: https://goo.gl/gHTa8z

That will be all from me for now. If you have any questions about indie publishing, feel free to comment below and I will be happy to help. Until next time! 🙂
