Oh, HI. It's ME! Again!

Today I have a special treat! Remember last October when I went to New York and was able to meet Amazing Editor Erica (ahem, sorry, I mean Amazing Senior Editor Erica--she got promoted! YAY ERICA) and Utterly Fabulous Agent Michelle (who also promoted herself to CEO and Queen of Wolfson Literary Agency) (or if she didn't, she should immediately, and print new business cards)? While there I filmed an interview. And...here it is!

Paranormalcy ARC: Wait.

Kiersten: Umm, hey, Paranormalcy. What's up?

PA: No offense, but you've been talking about me a LOT lately.

K: Oh. I guess I have, haven't I?

PA: Yeah. And as flattering as it is, isn't your blog about more than just me?

K: Of course it is! But HarperTeen is releasing all of these cool multi-media things, the trailer, the podcast, and now the interview. It's really exciting and I want to share them with people!

PA: Is that the only reason?

K: ...yes...

PA: Really?

K: Okay, fine, I'm exhausted and lazy and these make for easy posts. I'm letting HarperTeen do my job for me.

PA: I'm glad you're admitting as much.

K: Speaking of confessing things, weren't you hanging out around my computer the other day? And why do I suddenly have 53 pre-orders for Anna and the French Kiss on my Amazon account?

PA: You should totally post that video now! Your sweater looks awesome.

K: Mmm hmmmm. We'll talk about your access to my credit cards after. With no further ado, I give you my Author Video!




PA: Umm, you aren't going to cancel those orders, are you?

K: I already have it ordered. We only need one.

PA: Are you REALLY going to share Etienne St. Clair with me?

K: Okay, maybe we need two.

PA: I love you.

K: I love you, too.

PA: I'm glad they only filmed you waist-up, though. This way no one knows your feet hung four inches above the ground!

K: Or at least they didn't until now.

PA: Remember how I love you?

Tee hee. Your blog is always guaranteed to make me giggle.

Lydia Sharp said...

Awesome interview!

DJ's Life in Fiction said...

Haha. I love your conversation with Paranormalcy! I think multiple copies of Anna and the French Kiss are acceptable. It's a great book! Great interview video, too! :-)

Lindsey Bench said...

You look hot. Seriously, you look super good in that interview. And you talk super good and hot too.

Kiersten White said...

Lindsey, something tells me you have a) excellent genes and b) a really cute son. Just a guess.

Cinnamon, Lydia, and DJ--Thank you! I love HarperTeen : )

Caroline Starr Rose said...

Excellent interview and trailer. I like that you've interested me in a genre I normally don't read. And I love the way HarperTeen has taken such beautiful care of you.

Kiersten White said...

Caroline--They're the best! How well they take care of their authors is one of the reasons they were my top choice of publishers for Paranormalcy : )

Susan Adrian said...

All RIGHT, I really need to read it now. :)

Great vid!

Kristan said...

Great interview! I liked seeing you better than I liked the podcast, to be honest. I guess I just prefer visuals to hang on to. (I've never been one for audiobooks, for example.)

EEEEEEEE IT'S LIKE A MONTH AWAY!!!

VICTORIA SAAVEDRA said...

AH!! Congrats! So exciting!

Tere Kirkland said...

LOL, I love easy blog posts!

Can't wait until Paranormalcy is released!

Vicki Rocho said...

Please tell me it took a multitude of takes to do this! Or that they told you ahead of time what they were going to ask. (I live in fear of an on-the-spot interview, can you tell?) But look at you, cool calm and collected.

Candyland said...

I watched the interview. "Yay."
:)

SM Schmidt said...

That is so cool how the cover is passing in the background as you talk!

patdwhite said...

Hey!!!! THATS MY BABY GIRL IN THE INTERVIEW!!!!!! Thats so cool. I am not going to tell you you looked hot (like Lindsey did) because, well, that would be wierd. But you looked beautiful and were charming and I wanted to go outside and shout at everyone that walked by to go watch it. I loved the interview, you did a wonderful job of explaining some fun things in Paranormalcy. I think I will order a copy.....
again.....

Kimberly Franklin said...

Excellent interview! And what a gorgeous cover you have! I can't wait to read this book!!

Myrna Foster said...

I loved the interview!

Claire Dawn said...

I watched the vid before I read the rest of the chat with PA, and I was thinking, "She totally looks normal sized there!" and then PA ruined the illusion.

PS. I really don't see the problem with 53 Etienne's ;)
