“It’s Showtime” Hashtag member Ronnie picked by author to be the cover model
Queen Elly the author of the hit romantic online story “Vince and Kath,” is ready to make waves beyond social media as she debuts her first book from ABS-CBN Publishing titled “The Wrong Message.”
Touted as a ‘social serye’ book, “The Wrong Message” revolves around a love story expressed through a series of text messages and emojis and attempts to answer the question, “can love begin with a wrong message?”
The story follows Elise, a sophomore college student who bravely sends an “I love you” text message to her long time crush Manuel.
But it isn’t Manuel who receives Elise’s profession of love.
It turns out that a stranger named Gab receives Elise’s “I love you” message for Manuel. As Gab’s girlfriend discovers Elise’s text, Gab and his girlfriend fight and breakup, which makes Elise feel guilty for the wrong message she sent.
Published by ABS-CBN Publishing, “The Wrong Message” is the first book launched by the company this year.
At the recent book launch held at National Book Store Trinoma, hundreds of fans eagerly waited in line to grab the chance to meet and greet Queen Elly and “It’s Showtime” Hashtag member Ronnie Alonte, who was personally handpicked by the author to be her book cover model.
Queen Elly, who in real-life is 21-year-old Jenny Ruth Almocera, shot to fame earlier this year with the love story of “Vince and Kath” that she wrote and posted on Facebook that quickly went viral.
The newest Kapamilya author even shared with ABS-CBNnews.com that before “Vince and Kath,” she occasionally writes short stories based on personal experiences. She also draws inspiration for ‘kilig’ lines from her imagination and her friends’ love stories.
Queen Elly’s “The Wrong Message” follows a string of successful releases last year from ABS-CBN Publishing including “Stupid Is Forevermore” and “Besties,” among others. It is exclusively available in all National Book Store branches nationwide priced at P125.
