Number One best selling biography

Today the 24th. April 2013, our book has hit the Number One bestselling biography slot on Amazon,co.uk!

An exciting day!

Saturday 6th. April was a very exciting day for us.

10.00 am we had and interview with Chanel One TV Russia. The interview lasted a full two hours. Apparently, our book is having a lot of interest in Russia!

12.00 noon we had a book signing event in Waterstones, Tenterden. It is always enjoyable to meet lovely people who are interested in our story, and to hear their stories too. Our book does seem to touch the lives of many who are affected by the issues raised.

4.30 pm another interview with Suddeutsche Zeitung Magazin, Germany. They have a readership as big as The Sunday Times and The New York Times and were very complimentary about our book.

We have seen from our promotion tour that it is amazing how a human interest story is borderless. The issues affect people all over the world. We are receiving emails from those who are conducting searches for their own families. Our heart goes out to them, whoever they are, wherever they are.

Launch Party in Tenterden

On Friday 5th April we held a Launch Party for our book in Tenterden.

Sam and Jenny organised wonderful food and drinks, the event was a huge success.

There were about 75 people there including Philippa Hardy from our publisher Pan Macmillan and our dear friend and Ghostwriter, Jacquie Buttriss. It was overwhelming to hear how much everyone has enjoyed our book!

Number 3 bestseller!

We were thrilled to get the Sunday Times for 31st March and to see that we are got to Number 3 of all books in the general paperback section!
