Bookworms Realm Digital Publishing Now Offers E-books in Kindle Format, FIRST in the Philippines !!!

Posted by Yara Alonso on June 20, 2011 at 4:50 AM Comments comments (0)


The Bookworms Realm Digital Publishing™  (BWR) is a full

digital-based publication, first of its kind in the Philippines. We offer

wide array of services from pay per view (for rent stories read in

Multiply), free on-line stories via membership points in our forum

(bookworms.forumotion.net) and yes, oh, yes, we're proud to say that

we now offer novels in kindle format.



Due to inquiries aplenty about Tagalog Romance/Pocketbooks

availability (or the lack thereof) in kindle, we've decided to do

something about the matter. We want to reach in any way we can, if

not in printed form, at least in other means comfortable to our

readers, especially places overseas where shipment of printed

materials sum to skyrocketing amounts.



BWR is synonymous to innovation as we PIONEERed the many

FIRSTS in Tagalog Romance/Pocketbooks Industry - one of which is

pay per view, the others include novels in kindle format and maybe

you haven't heard of this, HARDBOUND TAGALOG POCKETBOOKS.



So if you're caught reading tagalog pocketbooks that are either

copied, translated in Filipino and recycled in all their mediocrity, BWR

is the right place to go.

EXCERPT :



I looked back at him when he wasn’t lookinganymore. It hurt me more than I could take, seeing him with another girl,looking happier than ever. I wanted to run away and shout ’til I run out ofvoice, ’til my vocal chord explodes,’til I die. I really wanted to die, Ireally did. What had I done wrong that deserved this kind of torment? How Iwish I could bring the past back…bring those days back, those days I spent withhim — those days when he was mine. He.Was.Mine.Alone.


I swayed my gazesomewhere else "Oh Karrie, look somewhere else.For Pete’s sake, L-O-O-KS-O-M-E-W-H-E-R-E E-L-S-E!" my mind quipped. So I gazed on the food servedon the table — they’re really delectable to the eye, made me wonder if theywould taste as good as they appeared.


Someone called my name "Karrie, would you bewatching the concert with us?" the voice seemed to be coming somewherefar, penetrating through my consternation over the food.


Then I searched the whole place and encountered apair of penetrating dark eyes anticipating my answer, how could I ever forgethis voice? How could I ever forget that voice that haunted me every night?


The voice which whispered like a prayer everynight?


 Oh I knewwhy, while I missed the voice so much, I tried hard, really hard to burry it atthe deepest recess of my soul. Because I lost him before and I couldn’t havehim anymore. Not now. Not ever.


"No…"I immediately answered. I said no not because I didn’t want to be with them,after all his girlfriend Jessie, current girlfriend at that was a long lostfriend of mine, but because I couldn’t stand the thought that I’ll be anuissance when we go out.


"Why?"seeing the furrow on Jessie’s forehead made me guilty but I had to make astand. Needless to say, to save my heart from being broken into pieces. Again.


"I have adate on Tuesday." I silently thanked my ever-functioning brain.


"Oh that’sokay. Next time na lang, Karrie." Yussof said it in a very casual tone.How could he say my name so casually when I couldn’t even say his name withouthurting so bad inside? He must love Jessie so much or he’s dong it on purpose –to hurt me the way I hurt him before.


How pressumptious of me! But if he’s really out topunish me, and then he’s doing a great job!


That wasdefinitely a long night and I really wanted that night to end so I could sleepand wake up the next day thinking that that was just a nightmare, a bad, baddream. I could hear Fra Lippo Lippi singing at the background – was it just animagination? No, as if to mock me some more, the restaurant played a song thatblatantly expressed what I was exactly feeling that very moment.


How could you come with me

When you knew all along that you had to go

How could you watch me sleep

So close to you

Pretending not to know

How could you memorize my name

And forget who i am

How could you think

You’re still the same

Believing i can

It’s too late to start pretending

It’s too late for a new beginning

Later than the sunset

Later that the rain

Later than never to love you again

How could you ask for more

With an innocent smile

Trusting me to stay

How could you close the door

And leave me here

Supposing I’m ok

How could you break down

My disguise

And uncover my fears

How could you look into my eyes

Ignoring my tears

It’s too late to start pretending

It’s too late for a new beginning

Later that the sunset

Later than the rain

Later than never to love you again

Its too late


Before the songended, I gazed at Yussof one last time and was surprised to see him intentlystaring at me. His eyes – his ever expressive eyes- were telling me something.Something I didn’t want to know and wouldn’t have the courage to know.

Call her a social climber, an egoistic bitch, and a hard-core brute who will do anything within her prowess to win the game.  A bastard, that’s what they call her.  She was young and ambitious yet despite the biatch within her she believed that her profession as a lawyer should be used to bring justice to those who so much deserve it.  And her aggressiveness in her quest for the truth, coupled with skill and knowledge, became her living tools to defend the oppress.

Twenty-eight year old Magda is now confronted with two controversial cases that almost lead to her eventual banishment and downfall in the legal profession.  The murder case of a nine year old girl who was killed when she was ran over by the speeding car of her step-mother was entrusted to Magda.  But when her witnesses started to disappear and later on found dead and brutally tortured, she reached the verge of doubting if justice will ever be served in a monstrous society being dictated by money, greed and power.



A presidential bet surprisingly hired young amateur lawyer Magda to bring a suit against a notorious columnist.  At the end of the day, she found herself being used in a systematic ploy devised by none other than her client -the next President of the Republic.  But by the time she realized how badly her name was put at stake, it was already too late.



How far now will you go in search for justice when the blasphemy inside the system is too lethal to be cured?  How will you fight against injustice if the game being run inside has been played ever since prostitution was invented?  And amidst the legal maneuverings and strategies, ‘money talk’ is the best and most effective dialogue.

I Believe in a Thing Called Love by Yara Alonso


“Ang tunay na pag-ibig madalang lang biyahe niyan

Kaya ‘pag dumaan sa’yo, parahin mo, sumakay ka

kasi baka di na bumalik ‘yon

Siguro nga babalik pa, pero pa’no kung may sakay ng iba

Sasabit ka na lang ba?”


 

I am Karrina Maite Alfonso Katapangan, twenty seven years old. A call center communications trainer who once fell in love. I have always believed in love and this is my story....

 

When you're loveless, you're longing for someone to love and who'll love you back.

 

Of course love will come, it has its own time and run its own course...

 

But what will you do if not one, but two chances to find true love come in your life when you least expect them?

 

Would you choose someone you love or someone who loves you?

 

Would you choose someone who got away or someone you let go?



Excerpt : 


 

         I looked back at him when he wasn’t looking anymore. It hurt me more than I could take, seeing him with another girl, looking happier than ever. I wanted to run away and shout ’til I run out of voice, ’til my vocal chord explodes,’til I die. I really wanted to die, I really did. What had I done wrong that deserved this kind of torment? How I wish I could bring the past back…bring those days back, those days I spent with him — those days when he was mine. He.Was.Mine.Alone.

Before the song ended, I gazed at Yussof one last time and was surprised to see him intently staring at me. His eyes – his ever expressive eyes- were telling me something. Something I didn’t want to know and wouldn’t have the courage to know.
