East Wind Books carries several of my books and I’ve been informed that they’ve created "bundles" with discounted prices, which means it's a good way to get copies of my book at a discount while supporting an indie bookstore. Scroll down at link -- http://www.asiabookcenter.com/store/c193/Filipino_American_Poetry_.html -- to see what’s available. Here’s the brilliant, young poet Brian Ang who works behind EWB's counter showing me how it works on the store’s computer:

Speaking of book distribution, I realize it can be difficult for folks in the Philippines to access my books. So now, newly part of the collection at The Ateneo Library of Women's Writings are the following which were published outside the Philippines (they should of course already have my Philippine-published books). This isn't a complete selection of my books but is a good representation (info about them HERE):

1. Silk Egg: Collected Novels (2009-2009)
2. Menage a Trois with the 21st Century
3. Love in a Time of Belligerence

4. The Opposite of Claustrophobia: Prime's Anti-Autobiography

5. The Awakening: A Long poem triptych & poetics fragment

6. Winter on Wall Street: A Novella-in-Verse

7. Puñeta: Political Pilipinx Poetry
(as editor)
8. Immigrant: Hay (na)ku & other poems in a New land

9. Against Misanthropy: A Life in Poetry (2015-1995)

10. # EileenWritesNovel (Otoliths: issue forty-four, part three southern summer), 2017

11. Reproductions of the Empty Flagpole

12. Hiraeth: Tercets from the last Archipelago

13. Excavating the Filipino In Me
The Thorn Rosary: Selected prose poems & New (1998-2010)

Edna Manlapaz had a great idea when she helped create the Ateneo Library of Women’s Writings (ALIWW). Grateful to her and all literary activists.
