Book Launch of Song of the Sea Maid by Rebecca Mascull

Song of the sea maidThis is such a gorgeous book (see my review lower down this blog), that when the opportunity arose to attend the launch of ‘Song of the Sea Maid’ by Rebecca Mascull in Lincoln’s Waterstones, I jumped at the chance.

Waterstones was packed with Rebecca’s friends, family, fellow authors, bloggers and fans. Rebecca made sure she spoke to everyone individually, making them feel welcome and important and showing what a lovely person she is. She’d even made cakes that represented the book’s gorgeous cover to go with the other drinks and nibbles.

Francine Toon, Assistant Editor at Hodder and Stoughton, began the launch before handing over to Rebecca who gave her thanks to all those who had helped to bring ‘Song of the Sea Maid’ to publication. Rebecca then treated us to a reading from the beginning of the novel.

We also heard to a beautiful song written and performed by Amy Naylor which had been inspired by her reading of the book.

It was a really lovely event and although I stayed until the official end time, there was still an enormous queue of people waiting to have their books signed with personal messages from Rebecca.

I envied those who haven’t read ‘Song of the Sea Maid’ yet as they are in for an amazing experience. It was also lovely to meet Rebecca’s rightly very proud Mum.

‘Song of the Sea Maid’ is available in all good bookshops and on Amazon.

    I lament that Song of the Sea–and Book of Kells before it–was never shown close enough with enough notice so that I could see it. One of the first DVDs I bought was the Secret of Roan Innis, also about selkies. Sweet film, lovely music. In it, the young’uns leave Dublin and go to the West Coast of Ireland to their grandparents, because the air is healthier for growing kids 🙂
