You're invited to a threesome

Er, a booksome threesome, just to be clear about it. (What, you thought I was being kinky? Moi?)

Grey Matter Publishing, a small independent publishing house, is launching three books on Saturday, 4-7 p.m., at TheRoom, G/F Unit 8802, Crowne 88 Condominium, Panay Avenue, QC. You're invited to the launch, which is officially called “Threesome: 3 Books to Break the Rules.”

Two of the books are by my co-Fabcasters: Mcvie's The Wetbook: Stories from the Bathhouse, and Migs' Dear Migs: Letters to Manila Gay Guy. The third title is by E, the anonymous blogger behind Chronicles of E, which is now in book form. I edited Migs' book, and talked about the process here.

From the program sent us by the organizers, I understand there'll be readings of excerpts from the books, plus brief remarks by the three authors and a musical performance by Cookie Chua. You may also have the books signed by the authors (and the editors, if you feel like it. Screenwriter Raymond Lee edited McVie's book, while Carl Lester Yap did the honors for E's).

While McVie is well-known to many bloggers and online readers, this will be the first time Migs and E will reveal themselves to people. Why now? Here's Migs explaining why he feels the time is right to attach a face to his online persona.

To celebrate the occasion, Migs, McVie, E and I recorded a brief podcast to talk about the books, and to reiterate our invitation to those interested to join us at the launch. Hear, hear:

Starting today, the three books will be available for sale at http://www.mybookstore.ph. In addition, Migs' book is now on Amazon.com (charush pempengco!) and may also be pre-ordered here. At the launch on Saturday, the three titles will be sold at discounted prices--P450 for the three books in a limited-edition box set; they will also be sold individually. The books should reach the shelves of big bookstores in a couple of weeks' time, though at adjusted prices.

Lastly, para lahatin na ang good news: our Fabcasts are nearing the 100,000-mark in terms of downloads, mostly via iTunes. Ang zaya!

I think anonymous is referring to Ariel Diccion (the teacher in Carmi Martin). ;-)
