Before Ever After by Samantha Sotto

20 Jan

I finally got myself a copy of “Before Ever After” 🙂  I met the wonderful Sam Sotto during a photo shoot that I did for Preview Magazine.  I did her makeup at National Bookstore in Power Plant, Rockwell.  And while Kissa Castaneda, the Lifestyle Editor of Preview Magazine, was interviewing her, I was so inspired by Sam.

Meet Samantha Sotto, author of the novel "Before Ever After". Being photographed by Pat Mateo 🙂

After its release in the US, it placed fourth on Amazon's Hot List

This is Sam’s very first novel.  She would take her son to school everyday and while waiting for him, she would be busy writing her novel in a Starbucks in Katipunan Avenue! 🙂 She used to be a brand manager in Unilever and now she’s a published author.  You are such a supermom, Sam, and an inspiration to all of us!  Anything is truly possible 🙂

With Kissa, Sam and Jerry

"Samantha Sotto fell in love with Europe's cobbled streets and damp castles as a teenager. Before Ever After was inspired by her experiences living, studying and traveling in Europe."

I cannot wait to start reading Sam’s novel.  I hope to see you again soon, Sam! Please sign my book! 🙂 Now off to begin Before Ever After… 🙂

      OMG, Dom… That is not impossible at all 🙂 I’ll lend you Before Ever After when you’re here 🙂 She really is inspiring and I have no doubt that you’ll be able to write your own novel soon! Go for it, Dom 🙂 Find yourself a cafe/restaurant where you can just write. That’ll be awesome, Dom! “Who knows?” indeed?! 🙂
