Several years ago, I still remember carrying boxes of books to sell at the Manila International Book Fair. It was raining, and we had the smallest booth facing the stage. It wasn’t easy, but I and my fellow writers had fun! Imagine showcasing your books to thousands of hungry readers, sitting side by side with the biggest publishers and bookstores in the country. It was more than what we could ask for.
Since then, it has become an annual 8Letters tradition until the pandemic struck, which led the fair to continue selling online, and we partnered with the amazing people at the Indie Publishers Collab Ph. This year, as we continue to grow, we’re going solo once again at booth 266!
Now, here’s what we have in store for you at booth 266!
YOUR CHANCE TO GET YOUR BOOKS SIGNED!
Our booth is going to be fully booked with all the book signings of your favorite authors. You know what that means? You can stay the whole day at the fair and meet a new author every hour. Here’s the schedule – make sure to mark your calendars!
