In celebration of National Book Week and English Month, Mystical Rose School of Caloocan held a Book Selling and Book Signing event in partnership with Psicom Publishing. Hundreds of Junior and Senior High students filled the school’s gymnasium to buy their favorite Psicom books, and to meet and greet some of the authors.
The event started with a writing workshop by one of the authors, Melai Quilla, author of the book “Bukas na Lang Kita Babastedin.” Melai shared basic tools and tips on how to create characters and plot for fiction book. She also led the students through some activities to practice their writing skills before the end of the workshop.
After the workshop, a representative from Psicom introduced the authors present for the book signing – Melai Quilla, Bryan Olano (“Mga Hugot Para Sayo”), Marco Pile (“Eh Kasi Mahal Ko Pa”), Youtube sensation Lloyd Cadena (“Eng Serep Megwele”), and Pocholo “The VoiceMaster” Gonzales (“Gusto Kong Maging Voice Talent”). Each author introduced themselves and had the opportunity to introduce themselves and perform in front of the audience.
Pocholo “The VoiceMaster” Gonzales came onstage and introduced his book. He briefly explained what voice acting is, and how every person can bring out their talent through his book. The audience were treated to the VoiceMaster’s repertoire of voices – from cartoon characters to famous personalities and celebrities.
During the book signing, the VoiceMaster delighted the students who bought his book by approaching them to sign the book, and to take pictures with them. Dozens of students were entertained and inspired by the VoiceMaster, and look forward to pursuing their voice acting career through the help of his book.
