these are my books. there are many like them, but these ones are mine.

The Girl from the Well duology

A dead girl walks the quiet streets of Applegate, killing child murderers. But when a boy with strange tattoos moves into the neighborhood, so, she realizes, does something else.

The Never Tilting World duology

Twin goddesses Haidee and Odessa know three things: that their home, Aeon, has always been split into night and day; that monsters spawn from the Breaking, the great cataclysm that tore their world asunder; and that the other is dead.

The Bone Witch trilogy

When Tea accidentally resurrects her brother from the dead, she learns she is different from the other witches in her family. Her gift for necromancy means that she’s a bone witch, a title that makes her feared and ostracized by her community.

Hungry hearts anthology

A food anthology by 13 Young Adult authors!

Ami is a mangkukulam. Her Lola Simeona is a spice witch who runs the local carinderia with a little magic – her homecooked Filipino meals grants worthy customers ‘happiness’. But with great power comes great responsibility, and Ami soon learns that it’s one thing to judge whether their patrons deserve their help, and another to earn the right to her own happiness.






His Hideous heart anthology

A retelling of Edgar Allan Poe’s most famous works!

 When an unexpected murder hits Boracay, the Philippines’ premiere party island, it’s up to Auguste “Ogie” Dupin, the meddling French-Filipino ambassador’s son, to solve the crime. Clues point to the work of a creature called an aswang – but all is not always what it appears to be when you’re surrounded by the supernatural.

A Hundred Names for Magic series

Tala Warnock has little use for magic – a descendant of Maria Makiling, she negates spells, often by accident. But her family’s ties to Avalon soon finds them guarding its last prince from those who would use his kingdom’s magic for insidious ends. And with the rise of dangerous spelltech in the Royal States of America, the re-emergence of the Snow Queen – and the appearance of the firebird, Avalon’s most powerful weapon, at her doorstep – Tala’s life is about to get even more complicated….

Everyone is believed to have two faces—one they show to the public and one they wear in private. The first face is their shaxsiat, or their honor. The second face is their ehteram, their dignity. The Bone Witch

The FiveStages of Grief

(The Bone Witch: a Kalen short story)

I wasn't lucky enough to deserve nice things.

Kapre: A Love Story

This is the tale of Kapre, who lived in ancient trees tangled in shadow. Massive, stubbed fingers the color of faded coffee, scrabbling at tree trunk and bark for sustenance. Irises the color of twin moons, mouth the redness of withered santan.

The House

...if anything else knows memory in that strange, abandoned manor, it keeps its counsel in the shadows while the sun shines through the broken windows. The world outside is not its to take, and so it retreats; grateful for the darkness, but at times curious of the light. 

Juan Perez's Corpse

At exactly 7:00 am at the Perez household, on a bright Wednesday morning, as he always did on a weekday, Juan Perez came down to breakfast.


Gary was still having some trouble attaching the nose to his face. I wasn't sure if offering to get him some Mighty Bond was a polite or rude thing to do, but after a minute or so of pressing it against the hole under his eyes, Gary slowly took his hand away, and the nose remained in place.

Do not do this to a poc author who is already talking about having to deal with micro-aggressions. I will be side-eyeing any publisher who takes on her books when she’s manifesting this level of Karen-ing. These weren’t even the worst tweet she did. That one’s in the next post —
