So finally, the Mystery Author of Fully Booked has been finally revealed. And just like we’ve guessed, it’s Michelle Hodkin! The Manila Book Tour is hosted by Fully Booked and here are the following dates available for the said event:
Since the event will coincide with Pope Francis’ Papal Visit in the Philippines, I will probably go with the January 17th event. Here are some guidelines provided by Lucy for the book tour:
Or you may want to read the transcript of the guidelines below:
1. What are the dates of the book tour?

2. What happens in a book tour?
The event will begin with an author Q&A. This is your chance to get answers to those burning questions so come prepared. The book signing comes next. Our official event photographer will take a picture of you with the author and photos will be posted on facebook.com/fullybooked.
Our time with the author is limited so we may have to speed up the signing process to accommodate everyone.
3. What happens when I get to the venue?
Step 1. Register and get your books verified by Fully Booked.
Step 2. Get a book pass number.
Only those with book pass numbers will be called out during the book signing so please register.
4. Is there a limit to books signed by Michelle? What books can be signed?
Only Fully Booked copies of “Unbecoming of Mara Dyer”, “Evolution of Mara Dyer”, and “Retribution of Mara Dyer” are eligible for signing during the event. Please have your proof of purchase ready (receipt and/or sticker tag) for verification. This is needed for your book pass. Any number of books can be signed by the author.
Registration begins at 10am or when the store opens. We follow a first-come, first-served rule. If you wish to attend other book tour stops, you must register again.
For the DLSU Libraries event, an online sign-up form will be made available beforehand. If you wish your books to be signed after the talk, please register for a book pass on the day of event.
6. Is Michelle going to be giving a special talk while she’s in town?
On Jan 20, 2015, the DLSU Libraries will be hosting a talk with the author. It will be held at the 4/F Verdure, Henry Sy, Sr. Hall at the DLSU campus. The event is open to non-students but online registration is required to attend the talk and the signing. Deadline for online sign-ups is on Jan 14, 12PM.
