We launched a new romance imprint this weekend at #MIBF2023: BLUSH BOOKS by @komiketph and @romanceclassbooks are new editions of #RomanceClass books, with art by Komiket’s community of talented artists. Very thankful for the support Paolo Herras, Rome, Aiza, Elisse, Gio, Shaira, and everyone at Komiket who contributed to making these gorgeous books.
Thank you Betsy Cola and Haranikala for sharing your time and talent
Thank you Brij Bautista, Danice Sison, Dawn Lanuza for letting us work on these new editions
Thank you Gio Gahol, Rachel Coates, and Jade Albert, for bringing the characters to life
How are these books different from their first editions? New cover art, inside illustrations, an updated layout, a larger print run, and wider distribution in the Philippines.
(So yeah, no ebook edition for this. All digital and worldwide print editions of the books will still be the original author-pubbed ones.)
Will there be more Blush Books? Yes! Watch out for the Blush Books edition of Filipino Readers’ Choice Award winning You Out of Nowhere by Jay E. Tria, which will have art by Shai San Jose.
How does a book get considered for Blush Books? Write a #RomanceClass book! Follow our editorial guidelines and the way we prioritize readers in our process. Textbook at gum.co/romanceclass and snack.ph/minavesguerrabooks
