Who Says Pink and Red Don't Go Together?

Because Evie and I? We beg to differ. Pink and red go AWESOME together.

For some reason the "You sexy thing!" song is running through my head...

A bookstore friend gave me Paranormalcy's stand when they were done with it, so imagine my delight when I got a strangely shaped package from Christina, my fabulous marketing...hmm. Not sure what her actual title is. So I'm declaring her my fabulous Marketing Goddess. There was some shrieking, and some giddy laughing.

Tell me about it, Evie. In fact, I'd even go so far as to say it's bleeping overrated.

A lot of my publishing journey has exceeded my expectations. These gorgeous stands that will go up in bookstores? Pretty much the physical manifestation of my wildest dreams. That's why I keep them in my office. They're a reminder of how lucky I am. That, and they are PRETTY SO PRETTY.

But Editor Erica (hmmm, she's a senior editor officially, but I think she needs a new title, too. How about, Empress Editor Erica? Then we've got the whole alliteration thing going, and I always adore alliteration) had something for me, too. The paperback of Paranormalcy! And now we're singing "Paperback writer." My house is filled with song today thanks to HarperTeen.

But oh! What's that? In the back of the paperback? Why yes, yes it is:

Sneak peek! ROCK ON.

Both the paperback and Supernaturally will be on sale on the 26th. In the meantime, I'll be dancing around my house, singing songs of varying level of appropriateness for small ears, and marveling that this crazy dream of mine keeps coming true, and, best of all, so many incredible teens and adults join it by reading.

Thank you.

Life is happy.

I hope yours is, too!

The Evies look great together! You go girl, you deserve it. Can't wait to read Supernaturally. BTW, have you ever told us the title of Para3?

Kiersten White said...

I have NOT told you the title of Para3 yet...working on something for the reveal to make it as cool as it deserves : )

And yes, yes that is Christmas wrapping paper in the corner. I'm not sure why...

Also a giant painting of a great white shark (by my talented husband) that we still need to hang in the guest room to terrify Stephanie Perkins when she comes to visit.

Awesome! I love the tagline!

Ok, now we need a pic of the shark painting.

Yummy! I love it!

Bethany Elizabeth said...

Beautiful! I always listen to paperback writer when I feel happy about writing. I even analyzed it as a query letter once. :)

Kathryn Packer Roberts said...

Yea! So excited for you. That's awesome.

Athena said...

Love those stands!! I asked at my local bookstore if I could have their stand for Mockingjay when they were done with it, and they said yes so now it sits in my bedroom with all my favourite books! I love the colours. :)

Squee!

Daisy Whitney said...

Hurrah!

Jordanne said...

Life is hectic! But I'm on my way to San Diego tomorrow and guess what?!?!?! I HAVE THE ARC OF SUPERNATURALLY!!! I'll review it on my blog (lapetitefillejmb.blogspot.com) but I hate spoilers so no worries about that. Promise! :) Thank you SO MUCH Kiersten!!! Life is SOOOO happy! Hectic but VERYVERYVERYHAPPY!!!!!

Marsha Sigman said...

I'd say yes they do go together! and they are really pretty...

S.P. Bowers said...

Hooray! Keep dancing and singing and enjoying the day.

BTW, when I worked at a florist one of the favorite arrangements was red roses with pink carnations. Didn't do much for me but a lot of people liked it.

Kate said...

When I read "PRETTY SO PRETTY" what popped into my head was Westside Story's "I feel pretty, oh so, pretty." I think that song will be stuck in my head for the rest of the day, and I may or may not always associate that song with Supernaturally/Paranormalacy now! :)

Jennifer said...

Maybe Para3 will be purple. Then you can have a whole chromatic rainbowfest in the corner. :)

Jordanne said...

btdubs: Pink and red SOOO go together. People say it clashes when red heads wear pink, but I find it adorable. ESPECIALLY when they have freckles. SO CUTE.

Ariana said...

Do you ever just look at them, squee, and hug yourself? 'Cause I would.

Whirlochre said...

Wait till you get hit with tangerine nezt year for Hirsutely.

Because — oh yeah — I've figured out the plot, sister. Evie kind of fades into the background in book three and it's all about a resurrected Jacques and his Parisienne werewolf pals.

So — a tangerine stand. With hair.

See you in a year for your Who Says Pink And Red And Tangerine And Hair Don't Go Together? post...

Brandi said...

Yay for you!

Michelle Wolfson said...

I LOVE THEM!!!! Yay, Evie!!

Is it weird that now I am sort of dying to know what color book 3 will be??
Btw, I can't believe you told Whirl the plot for that one.

Michelle Wolfson said...

That was so not what I meant to write, but I got distracted by the other comments. I mean, I did mean to write YAY EVIE!!! and I LOVE THEM!!!
But also, I didn't recognize Italian Evie until I clicked on the pic and enlarged it. I was like what is that book down there??? But Ciao, Evie! You certainly DO get around!

Delia said...

Okay, that's just cool.

Tina Moss said...

Super excited for Supernaturally! East coast signings, please. :D

LinWash said...

I'm preordering!

Mundie Moms said...

Those are awesome! YAY for the paperback release. I'm running out and picking both books up on the 26th!

Madeleine said...

I love the stands! I might end up taking a picture of the one at my Borders. ;)

My life is happy, too! I'm finally wrapping up the second draft of my WIP, and I'm also looking forward to seeing you in August!
