Best-selling YA author enjoys lechon, beaches in Cebu during signing tour

James Frey, also known as “Pittacus Lore” when writing the young adult Lorien Legacies series, is in the Philippines to meet fans of his new YA book “Endgame: The Calling.” And one of his tour stops is in Cebu, where he is currently enjoying some downtime.

Apart from a few photos of a few locals he met and befriended, Frey took some time to sample the famous lechon.

He snapped a shot of a beach and called it the “best book tour stop on the planet.”


Frey arrived on Tuesday and immediately took a shot of Manila Bay before landing.


He also sampled some Krispy Kreme doughnuts and posited that they may be even better in Manila than in America.

Frey will be in Glorietta 1's National Bookstore Branch on Sunday, 2 p.m. On Jan. 24, publisher Harper Collins decided to announce that he and Pittacus Lore were one and the same person, thereby giving the author permission to sign copies of the books of the Lorien Legacies (“I Am Number Four,” “The Power of Six,” etc.) and “Endgame: The Calling.” — Vida Cruz/LBG, GMA News
