In Which I Do Not Talk About the Fact that Paranormalcy Is Releasing TOMORROW, No, Not Even Once Will I Mention that TOMORROW You Can Go and Buy It



There is a reason my kids hide that clacking toy from me.

This was really cute....I love how you made a video for it. Very creative, and my copy is ordered!!!!! I can't wait to read it

*Lo* said...

I keep refreshing Amazon.com every five minutes to see if they've shipped my copy yet!!! I can't wait!!!

Rachel said...

I like your haircut. Maybe you've had it that length for a long time? I was just comparing it to the picture on the right and couldn't remember if you'd had it this length in your other videos. It's very cute. :)

Did you think about something else for a moment there?

Zachary Grimm said...

SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!

SO excited, Kiersten!! Yayyyyyy! I shall shame my Facebook friends into going to get it tomorrow. While I'm at Barnes & Noble, of course. =)

Mireyah Wolfe said...

The EYEBROW. It's eeevvvviiillll....and makes me giggle.

So does the clacking thing. XD

Michelle Wolfson said...

HOW ARE YOU NOT TALKING ABOUT IT?!?!?! I can't shut up about it!!! :)

Emily White said...

This video is too cute! My husband and I are going on a date to B&N on Wednesday! Yay!

Debra L. Schubert said...

I'm so happy for you, my friend! It's been a treat watching your journey, and I wish you wildly successful sales on this book and all your future novels. Hugs to you (and kisses to Laptop).

Lindsey Bench said...

I felt like you were staring into my soul. Creepy.

Annette Lyon said...

Congratulations (almost!). Not that we're talking about anything.

Lyla said...

Oh, Anthony, how did you get Amazon on your good side? They never ship my pre-orders early :/

I love those clacky things. Always have.

lotusgirl said...

Woohoo! That's the best news I've heard all day! I can't wait to get it. Congrats!

Jessica (Confessions of a Bookaholic) said...

SO happy for you! Loved the video :)

7 hours to go!!!

Marsha Sigman said...

I cannot wait for a shipment! Must go to B&N on my lunch hour...then I may tragically become ill and have to leave work early...but not to ill to read.

Brad Jaeger said...

I want my kindle to get here already so I can get this!

Taffy said...

Good luck sleeping tonight! heehee

Jessica said...

You are HILARIOUS! Very cute...I give you credit for not breaking the silence! Early congrats on the official release. I loved Paranormalcy and can't wait til the official copies come in (library and home) :)

Anthony said...

Lyla,

I cannot tell you my trade secrets.

I kid, I kid.

Normally if Amazon has something popular already in stock, they will ship things early for the correct arrival date. So if I paid for next day delivery, I would get it tomorrow instead of a day later, the same day I could buy it in a store.

In this case shipping was prepaid by using Amazon Prime. I pay 2-day shipping by the year, not by the package.

I believe this is also dependent on where you are and how stocked the warehouse is. While I don't know exactly how things work at Amazon, I would be surprised if they didn't use just-in-time-shipping, based on just-in-time-stocking.

In other words, I bet there is a formula that goes "GET THESE OUT OF THE WAREHOUSE NOW OR IT WILL EXPLODE WITH OVERSTOCKING."

Meaghan said...

This is me not commenting on the fact that Paranormalcy comes out tomorrow :) Again, not going to talk about how this time tomorrow people will be reading your book. Actually I am reading it right now and I love it, so I am one less person you have to worry about :) Congrats on the book release!

Kristan said...

My copy shipped yesterday! :) Granted, I've already read 70 pages, so I have a head-start...

I would totally make a video like this too, except if it's 1:42 for every day before a book is released, then, considering I don't have an agent or a book deal yet, my video might run a little long...

Angela Ackerman said...

Ha, great vid. Now go back to waiting because tomorrow everything will change for you!

And for the better!

Bask in the moment, Woman!

SM Schmidt said...

Squeeee! Cannot WAIT! The 70 page teaser was more like torture when you realize they end it mid-sentence!

Also is that a shark on your fridge?

Kiersten White said...

A shark? Yeah, probably.

DJ's Life in Fiction said...

I LOVE this video! I thought you were trying to have a staring contest with the viewer, so I started staring, haha. :-) Congratulations on the release!!

sraasch said...

When you held your breath, I did too. I didn't realize I did until I started gasping, at which point I...got very confused. This is how IN SYNC we are. Or, you know, N*Sync. That's more fun.

Wednesday + Me + Paranormalcy = DATE.

Julie said...

Don't you raise that eyebrow at me, missy! I'm going to buy it.

Has anyone ever mentioned that you'd make an attractive Vulcan? Just asking. :)

Rachel Harris The Ending Unplanned said...

LOVED it! I let my 5 year old see it so she can know why we're going to Barnes and Noble first thing in the morning and why Mommy will have Evie's face all day (you know, cuz my head will be buried in it all day?)

Loved the preview of the book and have been counting the days to reading it! CONGRATS!

Debbie Barr said...

Cute! And yay for you!

Chantele Sedgwick said...

My copy has been shipped! Now I'm waiting patiently for it to get here! Congrats on the release!!!

Nisa said...

That was too funny! My husband had to come see what I was laughing at after giving me strange looks. You got him laughing too, for the record. Tomorrow is going to be great! But I can't say why or you'll start thinking about it. ;)

Claire Dawn said...

It is August 31 in Japan.

That is all.

Bahnree said...

Haha love it! you're so cute!

I'm currently reading Mockingjay to help me wait until tomorrow. ;)

Ebony McKenna. said...

Is that the longest you've ever been quiet?
rofl!

Escribladora said...

I WANT THE CLACKY! WHERE CAN I GET THE CLACKY!?
Also, congratulations on not talking. I'm sure that took extreme concentration & skill. :P

storyqueen said...

See you tomorrow at Barnes and Noble!

Shelley

Melissa said...

Congrats Kiersten,

Amazon let me know the estimated date I will receive Paranormalcy is TOMORROW~ So I'm very excited. It's always great to find a fantastic book. I learned my lesson reading Mockingjay straight through...I'm not going to devour Paranormalcy...I am going to take my time and enjoy ;) Good luck sleeping tonight!

Rachel said...

I'm not even remotely you, but I nearly mentioned tomorrow's happy day three times today to people who have no idea who you are.

So please talk about it!!

Did you mention when and where you're book signing? Do you get to find out how fast it's selling out? Do you know how many copies your local library is ordering?

Vicki Rocho said...

That vid is super cute. I love those clacker things!

Tomorrow I'm fixing to pitch a KING sized fit because I have NOT received my Amazon shipping notice so chances are good that I will NOT be receiving my copy in the mail tomorrow and I'll have to call Amazon to let them know what I think about their shipment policy on pre-orders. Grrrrr. I promise I won't bite anyone...much

Mama White said...

You. Are. Adorable. (And no, I'm not just saying that because I borned you!)

Dara said...

15 minutes and it's officially August 31st! :) And I'm heading to the bookstore TOMORROW during lunch break. And then rushing home to enter the contest :)

ImagineThat said...

AND *drum roll please* Paranormalcy just appeared on my nook approximately 9 minutes ago! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY! Will be entering the contest tomorrow! whoppee! Go Evie you have arrived!
Way to go Kiersten your first novel has been published. What are you going to do next?? Hee-hee
I can't wait to immerse myself in Evie's world I can't believe it's finally here!
Your Ecstatic Fan,
Freya Dark ;)

Em (Super Reader Girl) said...

I bet you'll be talking & squeeling tomorrow! Will you be running around in circles? I would be! :) YAY I'm so excited it will be coming soon....I preordered to save the selkies....or mermaids...or was it some brainless girl who needed to gain self confidence....something - so I will be waiting very excitedly for it to arrive. Eep!

Brad Jaeger said...

Made a post on my blog about your Paranormalcy release!

Excited about your release much? :)

Madeleine said...

Notice that I just tweeted this with "One of the most adorable things ever" in front of it. And have mentioned Paranormalcy a crazy amount of times today.

Tomorrow, I think that might be all you see on twitter....

Love the video! I might convince a family member to take me to Borders tomorrow for just a peek... Can't wait till my copy comes in the mail! *sighs*

Tenshi said...

cute vid. ^^
its already time for PARANORMALCY!!!!!
I hope its out here in Germany, too or I have to order it from amazon^^
Can´t wait....

Katrina L. Lantz said...

Hee hee! This must be torture for you!

Just got my copy of Paranormalcy from Amazon today! Squee! I thought it would get here two days late. This lessens the blow of not being able to meet you in person (but only a very little). I will be taking my picture with it as soon as I figure out what to do with it. I'm thinking the nap thing. It does look like a good nap buddy.

Enjoy Paranormalcy's birthday!

Christine Fonseca said...

Can't wait to see you tonight! CONGRATS

Jen said...

Happy Birthday Paranormalcy!!! Yay!!! We are all very excited about this!! Can't wait to dive in!!!
