Blog Tour: Guardians of Tradition

A few weeks back, I said yes to a blog tour that will feature the book, Guardians of Tradition: The Gawad sa Manlilikha ng Bayan by Mae Astrid Tobias. Published by Adarna House, this non-fiction book is illustrated by Rommel Joson with beautiful photographs by Renato S. Rastrollo.

 The blog tour started yesterday, 13 October 2013 and you can read the reviews and excerpts from these blogs:

Dia Pelaez

Tina Matanguihan


Chris Mariano

Xi Zuq

Josephine Litonjua

I'm excited to read the reviews of the book bloggers who joined in the blog tour.

With Mae Astrid Tobias, ca 2005
 As for me, participating in the blog tour is my simple way of celebrating Mae Astrid Tobias' achievements as a writer and dreamer. A long time ago, in my past life as a grade school librarian, I invited Astrid for a talk on campus writing, journalism and on her writing life to grade school students of Xavier School San Juan. How she emphasized the importance of research when doing a writing project! I even wrote an article about her author visit in the school's website. Read the article in this link.

My excerpt and book give-away info is scheduled on 19 October, 2013.
