October 28 was a special date for the fans of known romance writer Martha Cecilia as it marked the 25th anniversary of her career.
More than a hundred people gathered at The Space in Quezon City for the commemoration of MC Day. More known as The Eirycats, or the romance diva’s group of loyal fans-turned-friends, these people celebrate the life and legacy of the popular author of love stories published in pocketbooks and even made it in television.
The same day also marked the launching of The Farmer and the Heiress. Precious Pages Corporation, publisher of Precious Hearts Romances decided to launch her last novel that was written in 2014 and completed by her daughters Nina Martinne and Tsina Cajayon.
The Farmer and the Heiress depicts the life of Elleana Syquia, a young, beautiful, rich girl, who was born and raised in London. Her parents own the biggest sugar cane and corn plantation in the Ilocos region. Her grand life soon takes a turn when her mother dies. She has to leave London to manage their hacienda. There she meets Felipe, the vilest man she has ever met. But this arrogant man is also temptingly handsome. Felipe is a farmer…
One of the fans shared her sentiment after reading Cecilia's final masterpiece.
“Natapos ko ang book na maraming pagtigil, may mysterious part, nakakaiyak, nakaka-in love,” says Malou Galviso, in one of her posts on Facebook about the book. “Done reading… ang ganda super ganda… na miss ko yung mga gawa ni MC. Ung malalim na Tagalog iba tlga tatak Martha Cecilia… Nakakalungkot lng na ito na ung huling gawa ni MC but still nag iisang Martha Cecilia yan at kahit kailan di malalaos at kahit kailan di makakalimutan ang mga akda nya. imiss MC truly. Salamat sa pagkakataon na makapunta at maka-attend sa #MCDAY #ParaSiempre… ” said Abegail Azuela.
MC Day's theme was Coachella wherein guests came in donning their summer shorts or Bohemian-inspired outfits. The program started on time with special gifts were given to early birds, such as special discounts given to the first 25 who registered, and loot bags to the first 100 who arrived. This event also includes video clips, games, raffle, interview and book signing with Nina Martinne, and the most-awaited part—the book cover reveal. Even the closest of fans and friends of the romance diva had not seen the book before its unveiling.
It was another memorable day for the readers and friends of the author and even the PHR community. The Farmer and the Heiress is now available at all branches of Precious Pages Store, National Book Store, Precious Shop online store and other bookstores.
