Conrad Abong Franco, Jr

Biography

Book Enthusiast by blood. Poet by passion. Writer by heart.

Conrad Abong Franco, Jr. is a Filipino author and a graduate of Bachelor of Arts in English. He is passionate in reading and writing poetry and prose on a number of genres. In college, he got a chance to read, watch, dramatize, reflect, critique and write
different literary pieces. This time, he wanted to share his very own literary works through his books.

A Book Enthusiast.
The blood of being a prolific reader (and a passionate reviewer) barely runs in his veins. Aside from physical books, it is also challenging for him to read ebooks or listen to audiobooks. It is a pleasure for him to review books he has enjoyed reading or listening to contribute to the self-publishing community.

A Poet.
He loves playing with words in rhythm and rhyme and expressing his thoughts in meaningful lines. Thus, his passion for poetry is depicted in his poems in an acrostic, alliteration, alliterostic (his own coined word which is a combination of alliteration and acrostic), couplet, free verse, haiku and rhyme.

A Writer.
It is always his desire to express his heart in written words. His appetite for writing had brought him to publish eight books in one year (July 27, 2017 to July 27, 2018) for both fiction and non-fiction. The number will definitely grow soon as he won't stop doing his passion. His books are available in digital format (and print version soon) in online stores worldwide.

Smashwords Interview

Mark: Hi Conrad, welcome to the "Smashwords Interview". So, to start off, can you tell us your story as an indie author?
Conrad: Thanks, Mark. It's an honor to have me on board. I think my story started when I was young.

(Becoming a writer). I can say that while I love reading, writing has been always my passion. Back on my elementary days, we were told to write a simple composition about our favorite pet, summer vacation, or any memorable experience. That's how I recall the beginning of my world in the written words.

(Becoming a poet). In high school, I learned about writing poems. Though I was new to the genre, still I was able to write my own poem. Later, I wrote more poems, especially during college. It was then in college that I learned to write acrostic and other types of poetry. Usually, my themes are about family, friendship, fascination, frustration and faith.

(Becoming a blogger). In 2013, I was convinced to join an MLM program which taught me the fundamentals and secrets of internet marketing. Through this I learned basic HTML coding for blogs, making a squeeze page, email lists and stuffs that online marketers do. It was then the start of my content writing online but unfortunately, I was not able to focus on this opportunity as I have to prioritize my corporate job then. 

(Becoming an indie author). In 2016, I have written a manuscript that was supposedly for my new blog but when I learned about Smashwords last March 2017, I was inspired by the story and the purpose of Smashwords. So, I decided to make it rather as an ebook.
Mark: What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Conrad: My family is the real reason to live life each day and I'm inspired to read, write and share what I know.

Smashwords book reviews by Conrad Abong Franco, Jr

  • Faith on June 01, 2017

    The story is very uplifting. It depicts how strong a person is even in the darkest moment of his life. A tragedy may be an obstruction to see the light (success), but when he holds on to the promise of hope (being trustful), he can survive and surpass the struggles and challenges in life. With faith in our hearts, hope will manifest in our lives. God's promise on Jeremiah 29:11 says "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope." - NKJV 001.20170601

  • Buried Alive on Nov. 19, 2017

    This could be the exact feeling when you are..."Buried Alive". But this could also be based on sleep paralysis? An indication why I say so are the lines "There is a weight on your chest", "shallow breath..." "You yell louder and louder but you can’t hear any sound". If you're unfamiliar with this phenomenon, just search on the Internet. Unusual but unique story. Keep writing though. 010.20171119
  • Life As A Recluse on Nov. 27, 2017

    Life as a Recluse by Mark Mueller This is relatable. Although we are created in the same image and likeness, every one is a unique person. And this line is amazingly true, "I recognize that I'm different, but I’m also aware that it doesn't mean I can’t fit in." Keep writing. 011.20171127

  • Astral - Night 1 on Dec. 25, 2017

    Astral - Night 1 by Khalil Akil It's been a long time now that I have not experienced the sleep paralysis and even sometimes the astral projection but your story interests me so much for I really wanted more about the astral plane. This book will surely help anyone who is experiencing the same phenomenon. For me, it is not a thing to be feared of. You just need to relax, explore and always think of going back to your body but being extra careful is always my recommendation. Brilliant book! #ebookreview 014.20171226

  • 100 Haiku on Jan. 06, 2018

    100 Haiku by Prakash Hegade "a hundred haiku told by Prakash Hegade every line is great" Hooray for your haikus. I just loved numbers 013, 059 and 079. No. 013 always build a bridge, for every type of water, life is to move on. No. 059 fiction or real life, you will see that pain and gain, rhyme for a reason. No. 079 be dry or barren, be a pond or an ocean, it starts from a drop. #ebookreview 018.20180106

    Mga Tula sa Baul by Jay Pascual Life in Manila is well illustrated through this poetic art and it is sad to know about those issues that need to be resolved or given with much attention like traffic, pollution, poverty, etc. Fearless, firm and fierce expression. Nice poems. #ebookreview 022.20180125
  • Poor Lost Souls on Jan. 24, 2018

    Poor Lost Souls by Lex Williams Mysterious and suspenseful. The flow of the story is intriguing but interesting. Nice ending. It can also be called as "Four Lost Souls" as the four characters did not know where they are. It seems that it was based on a sleep paralysis experience or just a mere dream? Totality, the story is extremely enjoyable. On the other hand, it told us a lesson that while we still have time on Earth for our loved ones, we should show our love, their worth and give our time to them so that we will not regret in the end. #ebookreview 023.20180125
  • Burden to Bear on Feb. 26, 2018

    Burden to Bear is a romance story written by David Manoa (V2.6). The story started with Christian in the police station and came with his reminiscences. Christian Cloud was not successful with his past relationship to Samantha Jones. As one way of moving on, he focused his time in his new gym business, the Cloud Fitness. He happened to meet Nikki Chalmers, a call center employee who had a broken relationship with Robert Stanford. Nikki was employed as a receptionist in the gym after her five years of working from the agency. They have known then each other. Gradually, they fell in love with each other. Samantha Jones who cheated Christian with Robert will soon be married to Robert who cheated Nikki with her but she wanted Christian to be unhappy. She sent Nikki a "s** video" of her and Christian to destroy the relationship of Nikki to Christian. Nikki felt upset with what she discovered. Christian wanted Nikki to know the truth about the video. It was an edited video. Carried by his anger, he had choked Samantha to let Nikki know the truth and must come out from Samantha. Because of this commotion, Dom Marino the gym trainor of Samantha hit Christian with steel bar in the forehead. Christian was brought then to the police station. When Nikki saw the real video and knew that she was the only one in Christian's heart, she headed to the police station and bailed for Christian. In the end, true love wins with Christian and Nikki. The story was told in a third person point of view but what made it more interesting was the twist of telling the story in the first person point of view. As you read the story, you will be placed in different heights of emotions like feeling the sympathy to the protagonist and aggravation to the antagonist. It was indeed wonderfully written. 025.20180227
  • The Well-Planned Robbery on March 19, 2018

    The Well-planned Robbery by Darryl Matter Well-planned story. Unpredictable plot. I thought it would be a suspense-crime theme story but I was wrong. It surprised readers with the creepy creature in the end-part. Nice one. 026.20180320
  • Journey To Easter: 19 days on March 29, 2018

    Journey to Easter: 19 Days by Tracy Delong I think it needs slight improvement in terms of formatting and editing. Some images were not properly put in place. Some texts were not properly arranged. Author name must be present in the ebook. Also, the Bible source must be included in the verses quoted in this ebook. Nevertheless, the message was fine, timeless and so timely in the observance of the Lenten Season. Keep writing. 027.20180330
  • Gin on April 01, 2018

  • How to Overcome Weakness in Prayer on May 25, 2018

    How to Overcome Weakness in Prayer by Ralphael Chika This book reminds us that we Christians should not fail to pray, praise and give thanks to our Lord for all the blessings we have. It is also great to read, hear and reflect with these lines from the book and it says, "Whatever you don’t ask for or place a demand upon cannot be given to you by the realm of the spirit. It takes asking to take delivery of your desires in the things of the spirit. You cannot be fed with food of the spirit if you are not hungry for the food of the spirit." The last line talked more about our relationship with God that our hearts are longing for. Let us strengthen our relationship with Him through prayer. Keep writing, inspiring and praying. 030.20180526

  • A New Way to Bleed on June 24, 2018

    A New Way to Bleed by KC Nicola The story is about expressing the grief after losing someone. The only way to express Nick's pain was to kill the artificial body of his friend Kyllian. So he tooked the screwdriver and point it Kyllian's neck until his friend died (shut down). It was then the new way to bleed. It was fantastically written. Keep it up. 032.20180624

  • Soulmates on July 06, 2018

    Soulmates by Rashi Dubey Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes, we cannot easily grasp the meaning of incidents in our life but eventually we will be able to find answers to the questions we have in our minds. "Soulmates" is a story of two people who resembled in attitude and fall in love with each other. Arjun vanished for no reason. Niyati was disappointed with their relationship. Although she has later moved on, she has still a lot of whys in her mind. When they were reunited (but in a wrong place and time), time was not enough to ask why and continue their pending love affair. Arjun took his last breath due to cancer. But to Niyati, life doesn't end there. When bad things come, there are still good reasons to celebrate life. The last lines of the story is also uplifting as I quote, "People change to make you learn to ‘let go’, things go wrong so that ‘right things can be appreciated’, you are betrayed so that you can ‘learn to trust yourself’, expectations fail so you can start ‘believing in yourself’, you feel helpless at times so you can have ‘faith in God’ and good things fall apart so that ‘better things can replace them’." The author promotes positivity in this ebook. Allowing good vibes to happen is a good attitude. Keep it up. 036.20180706
  • The Clerk on July 06, 2018

  • The Stranger In The Mirror on July 07, 2018

    The Stranger in the Mirror by Mike Laughrey It was an incredible story. Readers will surely crave for the next part to discover more who really was "The Stranger in the Mirror". Questions like "what happened before he was confined in the hospital?", "who brought him to the hospital? (or how he got to the hospital?)", "what disease does he have?", "will his family be able to know where he was?" and "will he be able to get home soon?" will hopefully be answered or solved in the future part of the story. Great job, keep it up. 039.20180707

  • In The Spirit on July 20, 2018

    In The Spirit by C.C. Wills Sometimes, we may not understand some mysteries in life but what happened to the author (the spirit of his father appeared to him) is probably a manifestation that the love of our loved ones to us does not fade away. Also, it happened because we cannot easily erase the memories we had with them. Awesome story. 045.20180721

  • Brief Introduction to a New Way of Exercising the Mind: Gymnastics for the Brain on July 26, 2018

    Brief Introduction to a New Way of Exercising the Mind by Eduardo Newton Very creative. But I'm a bit confused about how it was written into leetspeak where I found some errors in the spelling like "the" (73h - should be written as 7h3), "computer" (b10x0r - how does 'computer' written in leetspeak?), "contains" (c10n+41n5 - why it has to have number 1 before the 0?), "among" (4m10n9 - there is still number 1), "phase" (ph4c3 - replace 'c' with 's' or '5'), etc. Overall, it is an interesting way of writing and amazing brain exercise. 056.20180727

  • Drowning in Plain Sight ...A Survivor’s Story on Aug. 03, 2018

    Drowning in Plain Sight: A Survivor’s Story by Len Parsons In this book, I've found three important gems. First, the gem of Light (L). It gives us a better view of life. If you are facing difficulties in life, this book is for you. You may not see direct or immediate answer to your problems, at least it will give you hope. Second, the gem of Encouragement (E). It encourages us to always wear our life jacket to stay safe. This life jacket that we must have is our faith in God. We must wear it at all times. Lastly, the gem of Nourishment (N). It nurtures our spiritual life keeping us away from "Drowning in Plain Sight". 65

  • Close Encounters with Space to Remember on Sep. 01, 2018

    Close Encounters with Space to Remember by Katie Crawford "Close Encounters with Space to Remember" is a collection of three short stories. The title has been derived from the three stories. What a witty mind. Close Encounters with the Grocery Kind - a humorous story avoiding someone who was once a part of the same class in their school. It was indeed a short but nice story. Space to Breathe - is about the life of teenagers making independent decisions and parents trusting their teens, a transition of treating children as young adults and not as kids anymore. A Thanksgiving to Remember - It was a thanksgiving day when Robert was invited by the FBI for the information he knew about the map and the boarding pass. The secret behind the map and the boarding pass is not yet revealed in the story. A continuation of the story is worth waiting for. To conclude, all three stories are impressive and exceptional. 85

  • Awoken - A Short Story on Sep. 01, 2018

    Awoken: A Short Story by Andrew Ditch I found it extraordinary but I spotted two errors throughout the story particularly in chapters 1 and 5. In chapter 1, I think the conversation between Adrian and Jerry that tells “Where am I?” I asked. “Was I in an accident?” should have been written as “Where am I?” Jerry asked. “Was I in an accident?” since the story was told in the third person point of view. In chapter 5, the line "Someone else had come into his life and taken it form him." should have been written as "Someone else had come into his life and taken it from him." However, errors are forgivable and fixable. Thus, I would still give a good rating for this one of a kind story. 84

  • Breaking the Spell on Sep. 05, 2018

    Breaking the Spell by Attila Maddox What I like most about this book is the message of quitting the addiction of smoking. Perseverance and determination are essential to quit smoking. What I like least is the writing of unnecessary ellipsis (such as ...) and shortening of words (such as "u" for "you", "4" for "for", "r" for "are", etc.). To millennial readers, the use of txt speech is understandable but to non-millennials, this might be unforgivable. Thus, the author/poet should consider his diverse readers. Keep writing though. 91
