Enrico Antiporda | 4 comments My Philippine novel, A Light in the Cane Fields, is free right now (from 11/20-11/22, 2013) at Amazon:
http://www.amazon.com/A-Light-Cane-Fi...

Set entirely in the Philippines about an NPA boy soldier, the novel was a top semifinalist at the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award and received a tour de force review at Publishers Weekly: "A stylistic tour de force. A riveting epic of loss and transformation"

Enjoy the read.

Asia's main Catholic country, the Philippines, is also a bastion of gay tolerance. How did that come to be? I offer a few answers in my book AmalgaNations.

Under the Sugar Sun (Sugar Sun Series Book 1) by Jennifer Hallock
Under the Sugar Sun, by Jennifer Hallock, a new historical romance set in the Philippine-American War about a schoolmarm, a sugar baron, and a soldier...

It is 1902 and Georgina Potter has followed her fiancé to the Philippines, the most remote outpost of America’s fledgling empire. But Georgina has a purpose in mind beyond marriage: her real mission is to find her brother Ben, who has disappeared into the abyss of the Philippine-American War. To navigate the Islands’ troubled waters, Georgina enlists the aid of local sugar baron Javier Altarejos. But nothing is as it seems, and the price of Javier’s help may be more than Georgina can bear.

This book is the first in the Sugar Sun series, all which take place early in the American colonial era of the Philippines. Enjoy!
