Lit News: Moymoy Lulumboy Book 6 and Two More Children's Books Released by Lampara Publishing House, Inc.

With ABS-CBN exclusive rights to build up the hit fantasy series Moymoy Lulumboy into a multimedia franchise, It became one of the most anticipated releases on annual Manila International Book Fair (MIBF).

The 6th book titled "Ang Ugat at ang Propesiya" was released last Friday of September 13, 2019, during the Manila International Book Fair (MIBF 2019) at SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia Complex, Pasig City, Philippines. Following Moymoy Lulumboy's adventure as a heroic character who keeps on pondering the complexities of adolescent life, Lampara Publishing House succeeds in debunking the biased conception about aswang by going beyond its role in pop culture.

Fueling Moymoy's adolescent issues, the book marks the kid's return to his descendant's world of Gabun where he will be again facing another errand to save his loved ones, his brother Alangkaw and his childhood sweetheart Hasmin away from undesirable entities.

During the Q&A portion at the book launch of Moymoy Lulumboy book 6, when asked about the novel's path towards to a more young adulting direction, Segundo Matias, Jr. (author) pointed out his interest in writing characters that would tackle an imperfect life: “Gusto kong gumawa ng isang YA novel na gaya ng Mga Batang Poz. Yung buhay ng isang teenager o young adult: nag-e-explore, madalas magkamali at pagkatapos ay natututo sa buhay.”

Completing the event's showcase, Segundo Matias, Jr. presents also his "Mga Batang Poz", a daring 2018 young adult novel which was adapted into a digital series already in iWant TV. Pushing for awareness in understanding the lives of people living with HIV-AIDS, the book accumulated positive reviews from critics and other kinds of publications, with Philippine Star Supreme commending the material for pointing out a subject that has for some time been ridiculed by religious conservatives.
