The atmosphere at London’s most famous bookshop, Foyles, was buzzing on Wednesday 25th July as approximately 150 people gathered in the packed-out gallery for the launch of Rebecca Strong’s d├ębut novel, Here or There.

Rebecca, a British-born Sri Lankan, was set the challenge of writing Here or There within a year by Tom Chalmers, Managing Director of Legend Press, whom she met through the Society of Young Publishers in London. Legend Press, the UK’s youngest-run publisher of mainstream fiction, hosted the launch for the book, which is described as “a novel of choices, irreversible decisions and far-reaching consequences”. The novel is dedicated to her father, Kulan Mills, whose storytelling she said inspired her from a young age.

Introduced by Tom Chalmers, Rebecca gave a short talk about the book, before reading two gripping extracts that left everyone wanting to know what happens next. This was followed by a book signing and after party where guests continued to talk about this exciting publication.

Here or There is a hugely thought-provoking story, dealing with the issues of choice and decision, freedom and desire, and how much of our lives we can control. It is available from all good UK bookstores, and online booksellers, including www.legendpress.co.uk
