OH MY GOSH THE PRETTY

THE PRETTY. SO PRETTY. MINE MINE MINE MINE MINE MINE MINE!

(Well, actually no. Over half are already claimed. But that leaves several for contests...)


 Oh, hey, box of delicious prettiness. You are all rich and red and have my name all over you. Literally.


But I'm panicking because I HAVE NO MARKERS THAT WILL LOOK GOOD TO SIGN THIS BOOK WITH. That will be remedied immediately. Evie would never forgive me if I signed in a clashing color.

If I showed you the back you could see which four cities I'll be touring in this fall...and with which four super cool authors. But never let it be said that I am not a cruel, cruel tease! Of course I'm not showing you.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have a stack of books to coo at and to plan ridiculous photo essays with.

(Note: These are advance copies for reviewers and promotion. The copies that will be for sale in August are hardcover, of course, and will look a bit different as far as the type on the cover. Also, I totally found a deep red marker AND a gold marker. Score.)

Congratulations. What a wonderful feeling that must be!

OMG.... I can't wait another 5 months.... you are torturing us....

Kiersten White said...

Actually, you can't tell in these photos but SUPERNATURALLY is gold. So I'm torn between dark red or sparkly gold--merely because the metallic markers never last long/work as well.

But they are SPARKLY. AND SHINY. I love the shiny...

Emily said...

Patty Blount said...

Congrats, K!

Amethyst Princess said...

None of the pictures in my mind did this box justice. It is really filled to the brim with supernatural awesomeness.

I adore this box and want to build an altar in it's honor.

Rachel @ Bookshelf Lust said...

I think those "Gelly" pens come in a nice maroon color. That would probably look awesome! Sometimes I miss the days when authors didn't all use big black sharpies.

Katie (Bookishly Yours) said...

eeep! So pretty! Is there such thing as a burgundy sharpie? Or you could go gold. GOLD. SHINY.

Alicia Gregoire said...

So very pretty. Are you sure that a metallic Sharpie won't work?

*swoons* they're beautiful - I want! <3

THE SMITHS said...

oh my gosh. Thats awsome! Congrats.

Rachel Y. said...

Silver sharpie would be nice.
But I also think a soft sort of tangerine orange would look good and compliment the flowers on the cover by being just a shade lighter.

That's just my two cents though.

Vickie Motter said...

How gorgeous! Congratulations! I'm just getting ready to read Paranormalcy (I feel so behind the times). I'm so glad I won't have to wait for Supernaturally!

Khadija said...

I can't wait to read Supernaturally when it comes out! I remember reading the ARC of Paranormalcy last year and loving every minute of it! It seems like i've been waiting forever to read more :)

aLmYbNeNr said...

Oh my gosh, I want, I WANT! And I hope one of those stops is the MD-DC-VA area!

Meaghan said...

They are very pretty! I know it must be really exciting to see your hard work pay off and be able to pet the pretty cover ;) As for the color, I think you should go with silver or you could go with the orange that is in the flowers, that would be pretty too :) Either way, cover looks great, enjoy them!

Aubree said...

I NEED IT!

and are those in paperback?

Kris said...

SHINY!! PRETTY!!! WANT!!!

I say gold because your name would stand out, but who can resist sparkly red? *is torn* :D

Lilie said...

prplbookworm said...

Woo!! So pretty! I cant wait to read. And ridiculous photo essays FTW :D

Elizabeth Morgan said...

Super exciting! I believe a black marker would go perfectly.

Broken Angel said...

Clashing colors? That's unforgivable! And you are a tease. Flaunting those books :(

Laura Kaye said...

Oh, definitely squee worthy!

Jessica said...

Ooooh so totally amazing!!!

Amy Garvey said...

WANT. That is all.

Nicole Zoltack said...

Oh so beautiful!

Angela Ackerman said...

LOVE. I want it!!

Angela @ The Bookshelf Muse

Felicity said...

Pretty. I would try a sparkly red and gold ( bronzey gold would be cool too because it has a mix of red and gold). By the way I'm dying to read it. Do you know if you can pre-order it on Kindle yet?

Alba said...

they're pretty!!!!!!!!
I want all the others that aren't claimed!!!

Eli said...

Yay!! That is so exciting! They are SUPER PRETTY! I can't wait for it to come out!! :D

As I was swooning over your gorgeous treasure, I noticed my reflection in my laptop screen...my eyes have never looked so GREEN! Congratulation. Can't wait to read it.

Safari Poet said...

The red on the cover is even more gorgeous (more bordeaux) than the one in the pictures online. Beautiful!

Dangerous With a Pen said...

Stunning. :) Are you gonna pet them for a day or two before you let them go free? I would. Just sayin'. :) Congrats!

Erica said...

Oh my gosh! They are GORGEOUS! I simply cannot wait for Supernaturally to be out - the cover looks even more stunning on the ARC than the pictures I think!!

Lena said...

Wow, those are ridiculously gorgeous. I can't wait to see what Evie's been up to.

And yaaay, deep red and gold sharpies! :D

Anita Saxena said...

Very pretty. Enjoy the moment.

Lynsey Newton said...

Glad they finally turned up! And gold marker FTW!!!!

Katie said...

SUPERNATURALLY! I am supernaturally excited. And what's this about contests?
I would say gold, because red might fade a bit after awhile, but with gold, every time someone opens the book it'll be all, "BAM! I am your copy of Supernaturally! Look at my author's shiny gold signature inside of me!"
Or something like that ...

Mundie Moms said...

Holy freaking awesome Supernaturally prettiness! Evie should be proud of how awesome she looks on the cover!

They totally need to invent permanent marker colors that match authors books.

Christina said...

*speechless*

Kylie1403 said...

*drools*

Debbie Barr said...

Oh, if there was a way to steal one of those through the internet...

.Ambur. said...

They're gorgeous Kiersten! :D I'm so jealous of the people who've already claimed half...they're lucky lucky people :D
I hope you'll take a picture of one of them once you sign, I really want to see how that lovely red and gold will look! :D

Thanks for sharing these pictures with us :D

Amber said...

I was going to suggest sparkly gold, actually, but you're right about them never lasting long/working well. You should look for the Sharpie Paint Markers. They have them at craft stores (Michaels in my area). They dry rather quickly and do better than the metallic Sharpies.

Will be looking for contests.... <.< >.> :-)

Cookie said...

For a sharpie suggestion- my boss likes to use silver sharpies on black surfaces.

Christinabean said...

Oh! oh! How can I get one to review for my blog?? (www.allaboutyabooks.blogspot.com).Do you take bribes? Payment in smarties? Can I temmt you with a box full of COLORFUL markers for signing? :P

Mandy said...

OOOOOOOOOOOOOH, let us know when contests are up! ARCs are so yummy, cuz then I have an excuse to have two copies of the same book. Always an epic win. Plus, my blog thanks the existence of ARCs. Daily.
And seeing the bribes above, I will have to pull out the big guns :P
I have an entire box of Twix and one of those Toblerone bars used in Chicken Run :D

Chrissy said...

They're so beautiful! The covers made me squeal (quite loudly as well!). Can't wait to read them - damn those reviewers and such for being able to read them first!!!

Madeleine said...

Oh, crap - am I drooling? ;D

Melissa Dawn said...

Go with gold! You can never go wrong with gold!

Seriously beautiful cover! Congratulations :D

Melissa Sears said...

oooooooooooooh how can I get one? I want one I want one I want one in paperback, hardcover sucks :(

TEISHA LITTLE said...

I want one. Do you require my address, Ms. Kiersten? Also, I am fixing to send you an email with a copy of my book, DAWN, for you to read and--if you feel like it--blurb. It is very nearly finished, and I need the opinion of a flesh-and-blood author to finalize it, as I am fixing to have it published once I am finished with this first draft.
Kisses!
(And what a beautiful cover, by the way. I want that dress teehee)
