AUGUST RECAP || Goals + My WIP + A future giveaway???

Holy witches, my season is soon approaching!

Although we don’t have the quintessential autumn here in the Philippines – with the falling leaves and pumpkin spice – it is my season! Imagine…

it as a time when a Sirena can walk the flooded streets to help those in need. Let’s talk of the Manananngal who takes advantage of the early dusk to protect her women.  Or a time for the Mambabarang to relay the whispered messages for the dead.

Woops, I went a little too into Filipino mythology there! But also imagine lights, lights, and more lights! Because Christmas has already begun here.

Goal: Finish 50k on WIP

Verdict: Reached 25k!

In spite of what he is, Ghoul is a good boy. 

 For someone who eats the flesh of humans, getting into medical school might seem like a bad idea but Ghoul’s only goal in life is to excel in his studies to get into a good medical college, so he can finally cure his “condition.” 

The demon on his shoulder, though, is not very pleased. 

But things go crazy when Ghoul comes across a murder; when both victim and survivor gets attached to him. The demon on his shoulder is eager to make deals and own a child, because to him, everything is a game piece. 

Even the bodies that begin to show up.

This current WIP means so much to me because it’s influenced by Filipino urban legends and Filipino mythology, and is set on the streets of the Philippines!
