#MoreLoveInPH: Romance Writers of the Philippines’ 1st Multi-Author Online Bash
We all talk about supporting local authors, but finding authors we enjoy reading who have books available to us can sometimes be a challenge. The writers behind Romance Writers of the Philippines have recognized the difficulty facing many authors today, whether traditionally or independently published, and they formed the organization with the goal of “working toward better written, better edited, better produced, and better marketed romance novels by Pinoy writers.”
To this end, the org will be hosting a party in honor of some of its member writers, and they’re inviting anyone who wants to read more romance by Filipino authors and discover new authors to follow to come join in the fun!

Here are the party details:
What: #MoreLoveInPH: Romance Writers of the Philippines’ 1st Multi-Author Online Bash
When: Saturday, June 27 (10AM-9PM), and Sunday, June 28 (10AM-9PM)

Here’s what participants can expect to do the bash:
  • Learn about and interact with local romance authors (authors will be doing one-hour takeovers throughout the weekend)
  • Join contests for bookish freebies—one author is giving away a free ebook for every person who comments during her takeover!
  • Support local authors! Writers don’t always get as much love as you should, so it’s great if you just drop by and tell them how intrigued you are by the book you just learned about or even how much you enjoyed a book of theirs that they read! RWP will also be sponsoring random giveaways for participants who invite their friends and who are active during the weekend-long event.
Not sure how to join? It’s easy! Just follow these three steps:
  1. Visit the Facebook event page for #MoreLoveInPH: bit.ly/MoreLoveInPH.
  2. Confirm that you’re going to the event by clicking on “Join”
  3. On the days of the event, drop by the event page—authors will be posting ice breaker games (with giveaways to be raffled off to commenters), info on where to follow them and on their latest books, and more!

Optional: Invite your friends to join the party too! Then on the morning of June 27 or anytime during the course of the event, have them nominate or vote for you for the top inviter on RWP’s post—top inviters will get swag and GCs!
