Since one of the major book distributor here in the Philippines has been actively bringing many YA authors to our country I thought to start a new thread that is dedicated to informing you guys of the upcoming book signing events or maybe even advance news from the authors themselves via their social media accounts.

This is all very exciting. Once it was just wishful thinking to meet this fab authors and now we really have the chance to meet them in person and get our books sign personally by them :)

So feel free to post your experiences in the future said events and spread the love and feelsssss!!!!

There has been a confirmation via her tweeter account...Ms. Marie Lu - author of the Legend series : Legend, Prodigy and Champion...that she will be coming to the Philippines in the fall and most probably in November 2014. No official advisory yet from NBS but the fans and I AM ONE OF THEM is pretty much spazzing already the moment we got hold of this news in the wee hours of the morning hehehe!I can't wait!

Another great news, E. Lockhart - author of the novel WE WERE LIARS ...has also confirmed via her tweeter account that she is set to visit the Philippines late in March 2015! WHEW! see i told you authors are flocking to us.
I have recently finished reading her book and it was really good, a surprising twist to her mystery novel. Do check it out "We Were Liars"

No official advisory from NBS yet but they have retweeted her tweet so that pretty much says it all that they are hosting her visit :)

This month of OCTOBER the National Book Store is bringing in the following YA authors :
Claudia Gray who has published numerous YA books already namely the Evernight series, Spellcaster series and a stand alone Fateful. She will also be launching the first book of her new series which is more of a sci-fi time travel theme called "A THOUSAND PIECES OF YOU".

Her tour buddy is Madeleine Roux, the author of this horror thriller Asylum and Sanctum, both are out already. I presumed this will be a trilogy. Her other published works are "Allison Hewitt is Trapped" and "Sadie Walker is Stranded" which if you are into zombies then this is the series for you!

National Book Store have also posted their visiting author this January 2015 and it is JAMES FREY as i just found out he is also the popular author named Pittacus Lore (pseudonym of James Frey and Jobie Hughes) who penned The Lorien Legacy series. I am sorry i did not read this series and only seen the movie twice before. Many fans of this series are pretty much excited but he will only be signing his latest book from his latest series called EndGame: The Calling (Endgame #1) which is expected to be released this October 7, 2014.
He other known works are : A Little Million Pieces, My Friend Leonard which are more like his biography while battling with his alcoholic addiction.
