Most of all, I missed those who, as I understood from McVie's urgent text messages, were also looking for the editor of Migs' book--that's me. Sorry I wasn't able to meet you, guys. In lieu of my signature on the book (assuming you'd also ask me to sign it for you), just send a silent Miss Universe wave my way every time you open Migs' green opus and end up spending pleasurable hours reading it. If your eyes glide over the text with hardly a stumble over an awkward phrase, a convoluted sentence or a grammatical gaffe--if you don't notice at all, in fact, that you've consumed chapter after chapter without pause--then I shall take that to mean I've done my job well.
Happy reading! And congratulations not only to the three newly-minted book authors, but to Gibo and Dennis of Grey Matter Publishing as well, for putting it all together. (Great packaging for the limited-edition boxed set!)
More: McVie, on how he prepared for his moment on stage--by summoning his theater background!; CC, reflecting on the special occasion; and Migs, a day after, expressing belated acknowledgments. Indulge us for now, please. This is a biggie for us friends.
The books are available at www.mybookstore.ph. National Bookstore will have them in about a month. Bili na pow!
