First Book Reading & Signing at Cary Barnes & Noble on Dec. 4th

Amanda Lamb & Love Lies
WRAL-TV Reporter Amanda Lamb releases her latest non-fiction book, Love Lies, in early December.

WRAL-TV Reporter Amanda Lamb’s latest book hits store shelves on December 6th, but she’ll already be out promoting this weekend.   Lamb penned Love Lies about the Nancy Cooper murder case, a story she covered for WRAL.

Lamb will appear at the Cary Barnes & Noble (760 SE Maynard Rd) for a reading, discussion and book signing at 4:00pm on Sunday, December 4, 2011.  Advanced copies of the book will be available at the event.

Lamb says the main message of Love Lies is that domestic violence happens in every socioeconomic level of society-education and money are not barriers to domestic abuse. It is not always a black eye or a broken arm. It can be much more subtle than that.

“I hope the book will create more awareness about this issue and give victims the strength and courage to reach out for help,” she said.

Why did she choose to write about Nancy Cooper?

“For two reasons-one, I felt like I had the opportunity to highlight a very important issue and two, I had a lot in common with the victim-being a mother of two girls, a runner, a Cary resident-it just hit home for me in a way that other cases did not,” explained Lamb.  “I didn’t know Nancy Cooper, but I got to know her through her family and friends and realized our paths had crossed many times.”

The case gave Lamb pause.

Lamb concluded, “It’s just hard to think about someone in your own community who was struggling, in such dire circumstances and no one knew just how much she needed help.”

Love Lies will be available at Barnes & Noble, Quail Ridge books, and Amazon.  Find out more on Lamb’s website:  www.alambauthor.com
