Local indie author Rainne Mendoza set to grace upcoming author event at Barnes and Noble in Sugar Land, Texas


Are you living the dream, still toughing it out, or planning to return to the land of your birth, never to come back?

Author Rainne Mendoza raises these questions among her fellow immigrants on her newly released novel FOBOLOUS which will be featured at the Barnes and Noble New Author Event in Sugar Land, Texas on October 7 from 3-7pm.  She will be onsite to sign her books and answer questions about her novel including its upcoming sequel.

FOBOLOUS is the romantic tale of a young woman’s unforgettable adventures “on the other side of the world” on her quest to resolve her looming doubts about giving up her career, family, and friends in exchange for a brand new life in an unfamiliar place.  Hopping on a plane on a mission, she set out to America on her own to get a taste of what her future life as an immigrant would be like once married to her Asian American fiance.  In the end, she chose to be where her heart truly belonged.

Set in Houston, Texas, FOBOLOUS depicts the lives of Asian immigrants and their amazing journey in America - Land of Opportunity to some - as they freely embrace its rich, diverse, and unique culture in hopes of achieving a better life.  Told in an emotive yet comic narrative, FOBOLOUS also takes a peek at Philippine culture conveyed from a modern Filipina’s perspective.  The engaging story promises to make readers laugh and reflect as they stumble upon poignant life lessons on determination, resilience, forgiveness, redemption,  and true love that can flourish in the most unexpected circumstances.

FOBOLOUS is available online at Barnes and Noble, Amazon, Kobo, Apple Stores, and other online retail outlets in print and ebook formats.  For more details, please visit  You may also contact the author at for inquiries, book orders, interviews, or book signings.
