Report of Book Event from Random House: The Fallen Are Among Us

I received a fantastic email yesterday from Lauren, a publicist at Random House, detailing the events of when Random House's Fallen Army took their Angel, Daniel, out to meet the people of London to promote Fallen by Lauren Kate.

The army targeted shoppers outside Topshop, Oxford Circus then walked down Regent Street to Piccadilly Circus handing out copies of the books – in total the army gave out 150 copies! Each book contained a specially designed Fallen postcard directing people to the fiercebook site. The Fallen Angel braved the freezing temperatures and attracted quite a crowd!

The army then popped into the Heat offices on Shaftesbury Avenue and gave a copy to one of the girls from Heat plus one to the lovely receptionist who let the photographer take lots of snaps in the office. More magazine are also based there so the army personally delivered them a copy too. After leaving a few copies lying about on tables in reception the army left to a chorus of ‘There’s a naked man in reception!!’ from a group of ladies peering round the office doors.

Finally the army walked through the Christmas Market on Piccadilly to the small courtyard behind and took a few final photos of their brooding Fallen Angel."

First of all, I have to say kudos to that angel! I didn't know about this event at the time, and I decided to stay at home that day as it was so cold, so for that guy to be walking around undressed as he was is just... wow. He's pretty wow himself, really! I wish I knew about it, I'm so jealous!

More news and photos about the event are being updated on Fiercebook and on Twitter (@GetReading_RHCB). And check out the Twitter "war" between Random House (@GetReading_RHCB) and Simon and Schuster (@simonkids_UK) over who has the better angel!
