First Fictional Book I Wrote: “YOUNG AND IN LOVE”

Day 13 of the #NaNoPoblano2021 challenge. Major Theme: “A Few of My Earliest Things”. New sub-theme: “My Firsts”. Related post: My Evolution as a Writer.

Book 1In relation to my previous post, First Books I Ever Wrote, I am sharing this. It’s Book 1 of the Roseville Books series: Young and In Love. I was young then but not in love. The protagonist being Filipino serves as proof of how much I really wanted to promote our race and nationality….To emphasize, it’s all handwritten and, of course, never been published anywhere. Other than when I went to school, my books have never really left this house.

It is really amusing how silly I was as a writer. At the same time, I am proud of myself because I was able to do it. This isn’t my first-ever story, but it is my first-ever novelette. My books will never be published. I know that for a fact, but I love them just the same, shallow storyline and wrong grammar and all. 

Here is the synopsis (typed verbatim) on the back cover:

Growin’ Pains

In every girl’s life, there always will be growing pains…especially like Joey’s.

She was a bit more conservative than any girl in school. She wasn’t even much interested in boys…almost. Joey has a great crush on Ken Burtonelly, Roseville High’s star quarterback until he blew it. He was unworthy of her affection.

Meanwhile, Joey met a cute but rather intimidating guy at their own grocery store where she also worked. She hated him at first but after sometime, the feeling was fast changing into a better one for him.

Would Joey fall for him instead? Worse…would he be another wrong guy?
