I know because I personally delivered copies of my book Marcos Martial Law: Never Again to the offices of the following candidates for the vice-presidency:
Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr.
Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero
Senator Alan Peter Cayetano
Senator Gregorio Honasan
Senator Antonio Trillanes III
I did this Monday morning, just before my book launching in Balay Kalinaw, University of the Philippines Diliman, Quezon City.
The only candidate to whom I have not given a copy is Congresswoman Leni Robredo. That is because I did not want to be late for my book launching.
But I will bring a copy of my book to her soon.
Each book was accompanied by a letter I wrote specifically for each senator, that was stamped “received” by each of the senators’ offices.
This morning, I was pleasantly surprised to find the Chief-of-Staff of Senator Trillanes acknowledging receipt of my book. Rolando T. Averilla sent me the following letter-reply:
I had written the following letter to Senator Trillanes:
Dear Senator Trillanes,
I would be very honored if you will accept a copy of my newly-published book, Marcos Martial Law: Never Again.
The topic of Martial Law has come up as one of the hot button issues in this election and as a former navy officer you might find the topic interesting.
I would be very glad to get your comments and reaction.

I’ll tell you about the actual book launch tomorrow. I’m still exhausted.
