BEYOND THE PAGES: Billy Jake Cortez' Hindi Hugis Puso Book Launch at Tuguegarao!

March 20, 2020

Last March 7, 2020, Tuguegaraoans found out the real shape of love through Billy Jake Cortez’ Hindi Hugis Puso Book Launch at SM Center Tuguegarao Downtown!

Known as Tristan in #JowabletheMovie and Billy Jake in various VinCentiments short films, Billy Jake Cortez is now also part of Viva Books as an author of his very first published novel, Hindi Hugis Puso.

One of the special guests of the book launch was none other than Billy Jake’s VinCentiments family, who travelled for more than 10 hours to reach his hometown and to show support and love for his newly published book. 

Several members also participated in the excerpt reading including the bestselling author of #JowabletheBook and blockbuster director of #JowabletheMovie, Darryl Yap, who thanked the crowd for their constant support for VinCentiments’ craft.

Also present in the crowd were members of Bloggers of Tuguegarao as they showed their support and documented the whole event for their respective vlogs.

To entertain the crowd, Apolonio Macabbadbad, a Tawag ng Tanghalan contender, performed his own rendition of the songs, One Last Cry and Dancing On My Own which matched the mood of Mia and Seb’s hugot-filled story in Hindi Hugis Puso.

In the book launch’s brief Q&A portion, Billy Jake was asked about the inspiration of Mia and Seb’s story and his answer was his past relationships and experiences back then that pushed him to write this novel that tackles relationships, family ties, and the real shape of love. In Hindi Hugis Puso, Billy debunks the theory that the heart is the real shape of love and explains that the triangle is more fitting for the intricacies of love. 

Before the event came to an end, Billy Jake thanked his family, friends, churchmates, Bloggers of Tuguegarao, VinCentiments, and most especially the Lord for making the event happen.
