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!

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.

First 70 pages of Supernaturally

It's that time of the year...
when we get a sneak peek of Supernaturally in the form of the first 70 pages available for free! I do, however, feel that it's important to post a warning: Once you've started reading, you're not going to want to stop at page 70.
 Thankfully, Supernaturally comes out before the month is over.

You can find the sneak peak at Harperteen's Browse Inside page.

Anthologies and foreign covers

So I've talked about it before, but I felt it was time to post a reminder that you can now buy Corsets & Clockwork: 13 Steampunk Romances, in which you can find Kiersten White's Tick Tick Boom, even though it was set on release in May.


And that second cover? That's the Dear Bully anthology in which Kiersten has also contributed in the form of an essay called Never Shut Up. Such an important message, make sure you pick one up on August 23, this year.

There has also been some foreign covers revealed over at Kiersten White's blog (make sure to click on them for larger versions):


Italia vs.Portugal, which is your favourite? (Turkey has also released their cover, but we kind of recognise that one, don't we.)

The Cover of Supernaturally!

You haven't missed that Kiersten White has Supernaturally week over at her blog, have you?
 Now, if you have, you better get your IPs over there right this instant. There is an internationally open contest going on right now where you can win:
A signed, personalized UK edition of Paranormalcy (I [Kiersten] don't have Supernaturally yet and don't know when I'm getting it)
AND
A custom sketch from Hot Stuff!
But the awesome didn't end there. Kiersten posted Evie and Lend's song along with a never-before-seen cut passage from Paranormalcy! And there is so much other stuff you need to check out.

The highlight of the week, though, happened yesterday. As promised, Kiersten had a big one saved for this friday. We got to see the Supernaturally cover. (Click the images for fullsize, you know you want to)



Isn't it absolutely gorgeous! I just love the coloring and the lightning in the background.

February 18th and why the movie is on hold

Kiersten White recently tweeted that we should mark down February 18th in our calendar The tweet was tagged with #Supernaturally.

"Y'all might want to mark February 18th on your calendars. No reason in particular... #supernaturally #waitdidthathashtaggiveitaway" Jan 28
"For those wondering, #Supernaturally comes out this August or September. But on February 18th, I'll be revealing... DOT DOT DOT ... DOT ." Jan 28

Let the speculation begin, what will be revealed on February 18th? Personally, I'm guessing the cover, which, if it is, makes me very exited. What do you think?

And today Kiersten told us why we haven't heard any news about the Paranormalcy movie. Apparently they are trying to find a screenwriter at the moment. Let's hope they'll find him/her soon.

Supernaturally: The first line

If you're following Kiersten White's every twittering as obsessively as I am, this won't be news for you. But if you're one of those who follow more people than you're able to keep track of, I'm here to make sure you don't miss out on the very first line of Supernaturally:

"Oh, bleep. I was going to die." Jan 20

Kiersten even revealed the first chapter name: Out of the Blue Jan 20

If you're curious about what other tidbits she shared, check out our Supernaturally page or head on over to Kiersten White's twitter to hear (read) it straight from the source.

Tweets about Para #3

Just woke up to another of Kiersten Whites Para#3 tweets and realised I hadn't added any of them to the Paranormalcy #3 page yet. That problem has now been fixed, sorry for the delay.

And todays tweet read:


Supernaturally isn't even out yet and she already has me excited about Para #3.

Para in UK and Russia, and new teaser from Supernaturally

It's January 6th, which means that Paranormalcy is now out in the UK in a really shiny paperback version.

UK version on the right.
But that is not all. Yesterday, Kiersten tweeted another one of those quote teasers we love so much.
"Why would I ever want a lusty tree nymph when I could have a hyperventilating Evie?" was quickly added to the Supernaturally-page.
What do you think? Is it being said by someone we already know? Come speculate with us over on the forum.

And last, but not least, the Russian cover of Paranormalcy has been revealed.
Thanks to Kiersten White herself for letting us know.

What do you think? Google Translate claims the title is Predicting the elves. Do we have any russian-speaking readers who can confirm that?
