After we finalized our sponsors, we thought that was that. But then, the support just kept on coming, and from all areas! Let me try to acknowledge all of them:
Aris Cuevas, writer and director for the independent film, Crimanimal, will be showing the trailer of his film and will do a short talk as well. He is also helping out GPICKS in the production preparations and set-up, and he will also double as official photographer during the launch.
Maria Criselda Santos, author and blogger, has volunteered to do a blog tour for the bundles prior to and during the launch. She is also helping out in terms of co-hosting during the launch itself.
Bookbed is helping out in the marketing and coverage of the launch. They’ve already done interviews with the authors and released these to drum up interest in the stories/authors and the launch. They will be present during the launch to record the program for their YouTube channel and to continue doing interviews. Links below to the articles:
The Bookish Diaries Blog Tour will be hosting the stand-alone blog tour after the launch. This is for the twelve stories out of the sixteen that are launching as stand-alone stories. To join the blog tour, please see below:
Chi Yu Rodriguez and Georgette Gonzales collaborated on the #HeistClub Launch marketing materials, including the very disturbingly beautiful banner, profile picture and poster, and the killer teaser video (see link below)! Gette did the concept and the script, and Chi executed. What a great team!
Tobie Abad of Tag Sessions created the puzzle/game to be distributed during the launch. It took me a few hours of intense concentration to figure things out (which was difficult because life, work and the launch planning always got in the way), so I’m sure the game will be something mystery/puzzle enthusiasts will enjoy deciphering!
To the RomanceClass and Romance Writers of the Philippines communities, thank you for your support in promoting the launch! Special mention to Tara Frejas and Will Read For Feels for the promotion on their blogs. See links below:
With all this love and support, we already know our launch will be a success! See you all on Saturday, June 25, from 6PM to 9PM at Enderun’s The Study @ The Podium. Registration starts at 5:30PM. See you!
