Win a signed Endlessly ARC

Kiersten White just announced another contest for a chance to win one of three signed Endlessly ARC's while also sharing the catalog description of Endlessly:
Try as she might, Evie can’t seem to escape her not-so-normal past. And what was supposed to be a blissfully normal school break is ruined when a massive group of paranormals shows up at her house, claiming that Evie is the only one who can protect them from a mysterious, perilous fate.

The deadly war between the faerie courts looms ever closer. The clock is ticking on the entire paranormal world. And its future rests solely in Evie’s hands.

So much for normal.

With a perfect blend of humor and suspense, Endlessly is everything readers could dream of in a conclusion—and the unexpected twists will keep them guessing until the very last page.
The contest is open internationally, so hurry on up over to Kiersten's blog and enter.

What is happening

Sometimes real life can get in the way, which is the case for me, and for that I apologize. But here are a couple of news to get us up to date with what is going on.

As for the Paranormalcy movie, things are happening.
Mitch Klebanoff has finished the first draft of the screenplay, make sure to follow him on twitter.
Ray Kay, who will be directing, also talks shortly about Paranormalcy in this interview with VIKING MAGAZINE
V: You are making you feature film directorial debut with Paramornalcy. How is that going so far?
RK: It’s a very exciting project, and will hopefully be my way into the feature world. I have an amazing team for Paranormalcy. There’s a lot of buzz about the project in Hollywood, and I’m glad the industry is as excited as me about this. 
 


Read the full interview here.

And then Kiersten White gave her readers insight into the changes that happens from first draft to final version by showing the changes made to the first chapter of Paranormalcy. It is very interesting reading, which you can find right here.
 But you already knew that because you already follow Kiersten's blog, don't you.

As for Endlessly, you can pre-order your copy right here.

The cover of Endlessly

It is beautiful, don't you agree? Kiersten White just posted the front cover of the third, and final, book in the Paranormalcy trilogy: Endlessly.
 And it's gorgeous!

Click the image for fullsize
It is my favorite of the three, not only because it's purple, which happens to be my favorite color, but also because it's so ... but it's calm, serene ... otherwordly. Let's just say that I love it and I can't wait to read it.

Amazon states July 24th (2012) as the release date. It's going to be a good summer, don't you think?

New books by Kiersten White

Today Kiersten White revealed that the end of the Paranormacly triology, will not be the end of books written by Kiersten White and published by HarperTeen. She has signed another book deal with HarperTeen for four books:
MIND GAMES will come out winter of 2013
FLOOD AND STONE will come out fall of 2013
MIND GAMES 2 will come out winter of 2014
An unnamed standalone will come out fall of 2014
This means that we will have plenty to read for several years to come.
I for one can't wait to find out what they're about! The only thing bugging me is how 2013 is so far away.

Trying to catch up

Sometimes my offline life doesn't want to agree with my online life. That is what happened, and that is why Paranormalcy.net became neglected.
I am very sorry for this.

So I am now trying to catch up with everything, and I am sorry if there are things I've missed, but basically this is what has happened since the last time I wrote an update.

Supernaturally has been released!
Of course. It seems almost silly to say, since everyone should have got their copy by now. But it's a huge event which I am really sorry for not giving more attention here at Paranormalcy.net.
Please let me know what you think of Supernaturally in the comments.

And it's a New York Times Bestseller!
Again: of course. I mean, who didn't see that one coming? It's an awesome book.

Ray Kay will be directing Paranormalcy.
That is right, they have found a director. Ray Kay is, among other things, a music video director, and I am sure you have seen a lot of his work as he has done music videos for Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, James Blunt... well, you get it, I can go on forever listing huge names. Make sure to follow Ray Kay on twitter and/or facebook.

HarperTeen is sending Kiersten White on tour.
It will take place during october and I think you should head over to Kiersten's blog to read the full schedule. (Also take the time to admire the new blog design she's got, cause it's really pretty!)

While I was gone, Kiersten White also got to take over HarperTeens Youtube channel, making it possible for fans to ask her questions, of which the nine most popular (+ a bunch of other ones as well) got answered through the use of videos. You can watch them all by clicking here or just watch the answers you are most interested in, the questions answered were:
1. As an active writer/published author/mom of little ones, how much time do you devote to writing each day (on average)? how much time to edits/revisions?
2. How has writing affected how much you read?
3. Have you tried out your pink taser yet on anyone? :) Has anyone volunteered?
4. The stalker: full story, please. :)
5. How long did it take you to write your first book?
6. Where did your inspiration for Reth come from? Somebody you met in real life, or a book character? (Or a mix of both?) If a real person, CAN YOU INTRODUCE HIM TO ME PLEASE? If a book character, was he a Jane Austen character?
7. Kiersten, I was wondering what your worst enemy is? Also what was your first date like? ;)
8. Did you have any say in your covers, because they are beautiful!
9. Any advice on getting an agent/getting published?
10. LIGHTNING ROUND - in which Kiersten answers a lot of questions.

Germany
And last but not least in this Trying to catch up post. I have not yet shown you the German cover for Paranormalcy. What do you think?

As for the news revealed today, they will be posted seperatelly. If you feel like there is something I have missed, please let me know by sending me a mail.

The title of book three released

Due to a mistake where the title of the third and final book of the Paranormalcy trilogy was revealed, Kiersten White has now finally been allowed to share the title with all of us. And the title is:

"I'm so in love with this title, guys. It took me a long time to come up with something I was happy with, but ENDLESSLY both applies very much to the themes in book three, and also strikes me as a very funny thing to name the ending book in a series. And we all know I like to entertain myself." (Kiersten Writes 14/7/2011)

What do you think of the final title? I love it.
