Last June 23, 2016 at 6PM the Fobolous Book Party held at ASpace, Makati. It's a very intimate book launch party attended by the relatives, friends, former officemates of the author, media and bloggers. Before the program start cocktails served.

First they introduced the author, Rainne is a self-taught writer with a little background in Journalism but she's not a journalist. She graduated from the University of the Philippines with a Bachelor's degree in Broadcast Communication and was a Media Strategist/Planner/Buyer for global advertising agencies back in the Philippines. She now writes articles for online websites and web content for clients as a freelance writer. Rainne started writing FOBOLOUS in 2011 as a blog on Facebook until it developed into a novel four years later. And she lives in Houston, Texas with her family and their dog Mochi.
There's a part in the book launch that the author read some chapter of her book in front of her guest and then some of her friends and former officemates continue reading the chapters of the Fobolous book.

Last part of the event is the signing of the book by the author and I had a chance to take picture of her and ask some questions. She's very nice and very accommodating. According to her, her book is only available at Amazon as of the moment and she will try to make deal with National Bookstore. They visit Philippines every 2 years and I hope her next visit will be another book launch of Fobolous II or another story again.
