You really had to be there. But if you weren’t, well too bad. Hehe. But the #romanceclass podcast gives you the next best thing.
Episode 7 of the #romanceclass podcast features a scene from The Boyfriend Backtrack by Dawn Lanuza. Gio Gahol (as Chase) and Rachel Coates (as Regina) performed this scene at Filipino Readercon last year. And it got us swooning so bad, we had to stuff our fists into our mouths to keep from erupting into a mess of feels. It really is a different kind of experience seeing Gio and Rachel perform live. Listen to the recording below, and hopefully you’d want to join us on the next live reading? Okay? Yay, GREAT!
So remember at FilReadercon when we had theater actors Rachel Coates and Gio Gahol read excerpts of our romance books? Remember we said we’re launching a podcast to follow through with that soon? Well the first episode is up! YAY! This first one is an excerpt from Fall Like Rain by Ana Tejano, wherein Gio reads Mark, and Rachel reads Rain. Read a bit more about the book below before you hit play:
Rain De Castro has been in love with her best friend, Mark Velasco, for almost the entire time she has known him, but she’s clearly in the friend zone because he’s happily in a relationship. Or so she thought, until the news of his break-up reaches her. Now that Mark’s single again, she decides that it’s time to get out of the zone. But when her cousin Lissa comes into the picture and sets her eyes on Mark, Rain feels troubled when he gets a little too friendly with her. Rain is determined to fight for what she feels this time, but is it worth the effort if it’s a losing battle from the start? Will she back off to give way for her best friend’s happiness, even if it means losing him to someone else again?
