THE WAIT IS OVER PC FRIENDS!
It is official. My Drummer Boy is to hit the bookstores soon! The story will be published under Life Is Beautiful Printing Press (LIB Creatives). Last March 2014, I received an e-mail from their manager, saying that my stories had been evaluated and had been approved.
I decided to pass My Drummer Boy since this is my first novel that I have finished on Wattpad. I
edited the story and passed the manuscript three or four weeks later (April 2014). The manuscript is now being proofread. I also suggested a cover but it's still pending for approval. Last April 10, 2014, I signed a contract at the LIB Office in Quezon City to allow the publication of MDB. The book will appear first in Precious Pages Stores then eventually, it will be available in all leading bookstores nationwide! The book will also be posted on PHR's site for online shopping and will also be available in Hong Kong.
What's new to the published version?
First of all, mayroong scenes na nawala at mayroon din namang nadagdag. I deleted some that are not that important. I also removed that "tent scene" in Baguio because I find it somehow irrelevant. Instead, I revised it and came up with a more wholesome one. (Sorry sa mga naghihintay noong scene na 'yon. Haha.)
Secondly, mayroong nagbago sa dialogues. Saka wala na ding emoticons. Haha.
Lastly, malalaman niyo na din ang name ko. Haha. Pinalagay ko kasi sa cover, pinahabol ko. Ewan ko lang kung nailagay. XD
Will Be Mine Again be published too?
I will edit the manuscript soon. I'll pass it to LIB to be lined up for publication. So, yeah, it might as well be published too. :)
