Public Service Announcement

It has been confirmed by several people that Books A Million has, in fact, stocked Paranormalcy early.


ACRONYM, guys, it's on a bookshelf. In a store. Where you can buy it. (As opposed to those stores that display items not for sale just to tease you.) (I hate that kind.)

So, if there's one by you...

(That "..." is meant to imply GO RIGHT NOW AND TAKE A PICTURE FOR ME SINCE THERE ARE NO BOOKS A MILLION STORES HERE and then go home and take another picture to enter the At Home with Paranormalcy Contest! It was a very loaded elipses, as most of mine are. If you don't live by a BAM, you'll just have to wait like me.)

What's the hottest fall accessory? PARANORMALCY! That's right, guys! You'll never look handsomer OR manlier than when you're holding a copy of this book!
Especially if you have awesome glasses.*

Girls, you, too can be beautiful and have the world's most infectious smile! All you need is PARANORMALCY!**

*Glasses do not come standard. Manliness is difficult to measure or quantify, and in this case is referring only to having both an X and a Y chromosome and looking good while holding a book. Owning Paranormalcy does not change your chromosomes. Cannot guarantee handsome levels equal to that of model. Only guarantee is that girls will find you more attractive while you are holding this book. Or any book, really, but especially this book.

**Buying two copies not guaranteed to double the beauty of your smile, but in several test subjects did increase width of smile and add dimples. Having Paranormalcy will not change your looks; you are already beautiful.

Okay, I just called all my bookstores and they are refusing to sell it to me until the 31st. They said it's illegal, even after I said that the author said it was fine. :)

(p.s. not the first time random strangers have thought I was a kook.)

GAH! we have no booksamillion! boooo.

But congrats on officially being out! Momentous!

Kiersten White said...

Julie--HA! I can just imagine you telling them that.

C.E.--Me, neither. Sigh.

"Cannot guarantee handsome levels equal to that of model."

He is very handsome. Do you know what agency he works for? I'd like to get his number and take him on a date.

Kiersten White said...

I believe he works for The Agency of Really, Really, Ridiculously Good Looking Models. Sadly I didn't get his number, but I think he lives in your area!

Stephanie Perkins said...

It's weird, but there's a guy in my kitchen who looks kinda like him! Should I ask him out?

Kiersten White said...

First call the police. THEN ask him out.

Stephanie Perkins said...

The police confirm that he's the model in question. I took that as a license to make out with him.

Kiersten White said...

I love happy endings.

Erika said...

Wish I had one of those stores around here!! Will send a picture with my book!!

This post was so great Kiersten!!

Valerie Kemp said...

W00t! That's SO AWESOME! I've never even seen a Books A Million, so we don't have one here, but hopefully Amazon will ship early and I'll have my copy soon! Congrats!

Madeleine said...

So exciting! And did I mention that 100 different people entered my pre-order giveaway? That's the power of Paranormalcy's awesomeness (and yours).

Psst! I can't wait for my copy! ... And I've already read it!

LOL

We don't have a BAM here and my book is coming in the mail. I actually didn't go to the bookstore to see if they had the book up yet in Cheyenne. Will have to look for it next time I'm in the store just to see it there.

Erica75 said...

I've never heard of BAM. However, 3 out of 3 people I surveyed (one of which was an actual adult) think people holding Paranormalcy look pretty dang sexy.
Signed - me, who's looking drab for the next couple of days. >:(

Kari (Flamingo1325) said...

Ohh pretty! I tried SO hard to find it Fri. No luck =( I even called the two close Borders and the B&N today... they don't have it stocked yet. They are totally foiling my make Kiersten happy because I can give her early pictures plot! So wrong that like 8 SEPTEMBER releases were stocked, and your book isn't yet. SIGH.

But. Two more days!

Jess said...

Yay! Congratulations, Kiersten! I really enjoyed reading the ARC, and I'm waiting for the official copy to ship from Amazon!

Kelley Vitollo said...

I can't wait!

Claire Dawn said...

I love the disclaimers!
ONe more day!!!

Oh, and giving away a copy on my blog today.

Renae said...

Darn! I love it when bookstores do that! I did check our Waldenbooks to see and it was a bust. Now I'm going to have to wait one more day like everyone else!

Jamie Burch said...

Love that cover! Looking forward to getting a copy soon. Yay! Happy wishes to you...

Katrina L. Lantz said...

Okay, first the post made me laugh (and get incredibly excited) and then your back and forth in the comments with Stephanie made me ROFL!! I'm back up off the floor and ready to post a comment about how awesome you and your goofy friends are.

Squee!! So excited for you! (and me, because I get to read this book really, really soon)

AchingHope said...

ohmygoodness.... That is so exciting! I keep looking for it every time I go to my nearby bookstore, and keep asking peeps if they've heard about it... I'm excited :D
