SATURDAY 1ST DECEMBER SUNDERLAND & SUNDAY 2ND DECEMBER NEWCASTLE EMERSONS CHAMBERS
Amanda appeared in Waterstones stores in Sunderland and Newcastle over the first weekend in December and sold out on each occasion thanks to the fabulous response from the people of the North East. Amanda was impressed by the Bridges Shopping Centre in Sunderland which was absolutely buzzing in anticipation of Christmas and loved the contrasting charm of the old Emersons Chambers building in the Monument Mall area. The staff in both branches were friendly, energetic and lively which made the events a pleasure and Amanda hopes to return in 2013 to meet those who were left disappointed after stock had been exhausted. Pictured above (L to R), Amanda about to experience the Metro for the first time, Waterstones Sunderland facade and another copy of Poppy Day being purchased at the till.
Lots of readers had heard Amanda talking to John Foster on BBC Radio Tees and Simon Logan on BBC Radio Newcastle in the run up to the events and chatted to Amanda about some of the issues discussed on air. The radio interviews were a terrific help in raising awareness of the signings and the Poppy Day team send their thanks to both of the popular DJs for their help.

NEWS ITEM FROM THE BOOKSELLER - WEDS 4th & SUN 8th JULY 2012
Head of Zeus has acquired two novels by Amanda Prowse, including Poppy Day which was previously self-published.
Editorial director Laura Palmer bought world rights in a pre-emptive deal for Poppy Day and What Have I Done? by Prowse from Caroline Michel at PFD.
Poppy Day, which attracted media attention from Lorraine Kelly and Carol Vorderman when it was self-published in print in 2011, follows an army wife whose husband is captured in Afghanistan. Head of Zeus will publish in paperback and e-book on 1st November for Remembrance Day, with all royalties going to the Royal British Legion.
The second novel, What Have I Done?, is described as "the story of a mother rebuilding her life after killing the husband who tortured her". It will be published in trade paperback in spring 2012.
Palmer said: "Amanda is a natural storyteller whose characters jump from the page, grab hold of your heart and don't let go. These are books to curl up with and get lost in—I'm already envious of everyone who hasn't read her yet."

FOYLES TAKING POPPY DAY PRE-ORDERS
Poppy Day is a sweet, sunny hairdresser who lives in East London.

Now Mart is fighting in Afghanistan, and Poppy is counting the days until he returns. It takes one knock at the door to rip Poppy's world apart. Mart has been taken hostage, and the army can't do anything to rescue him. Refusing to believe in a future without her husband, Poppy decides to bring him home herself. Fuelled by little more than hope and determination, Poppy leaves the only place she's ever known to embark on a dangerous journey to the plains of Afghanistan. But her wits and charm will only get her so far. When she is forced to face a heartbreaking dilemma, will Poppy pay a terrible price to save the man she loves?

CLINTON CARDS ANSWERS POPPY DAY SOS!
Following reports of difficulties in readers being able to get hold of copies of Poppy Day, Clinton Cards have pulled out all the stops to get it into fifty of their most prominent stores. Cutting through supply procedures in short order and making logistical arrangements with military precision, Clinton Cards will have Poppy Day on the shelves before Christmas and beyond St Valentine's Day.
The renowned Clinton Cards chain offers the most extensive range of quality greetings cards, gift dressing and plush merchandise among UK retailers.
As the book was launched with no marketing budget and has relied on the viral effect to gain attention, one of the greatest prolems that has been faced is that of people being able to get hold of a copy when they hear about it and this could be remedied in the next couple of days if all goes as planned.
We will be immensely proud to be associated with Clinton Cards and are eagerly awating the delivery of the display units and Poppy Day books. Clinton Cards is the leader in its field by a clear margin and we hope that all Poppy Day supporters will patronise their shops in recognition of the magnificent support that this gesture lends the Poppy Day Project.
Watch this space for further announcements including a list of stores stocking Poppy Day...
