It's PARANORMALCY Release Day!

I know, I know. I said I was going to try to blog M-W-F, and this is T. But it's a Very Special T. So you're getting T instead of W this week. Think of this as me keeping you on your toes.

Anyway, Congratulations to my Agency Sistah, Kiersten White! Her debut novel is officially available as of today. Isn't this the most gorgeous cover you've ever seen?




AND I have it on good authority (our amazing mutual agent, Michelle Wolfson -- you can find her on Twitter @WolfsonLiterary) that Paranormalcy is one fantastically entertaining read.

In fact, Michelle told me this during our very first telephone conversation, when she offered me representation. I was trying to impress her with my agent research skills, and mentioned how much I enjoyed her client Kiersten's blog, and Michelle raved about her. Told me not only was she as nice and funny and sweet as she comes across on her blog, but that she was an extremely talented writer too.

I'm pretty sure my good taste in blog reading was the clincher that made Michelle offer to represent me. Just sayin'. ;)

Personally, I can't wait to dive into this book!

So, what are you still doing here? Shouldn't you be at the book store already?

What? You say you want to order it online? Oh, all right. Here's a link to Amazon. It's eligible for free Super Saver Shipping -- go crazy!

And let's hear it for the Wolf Pack! WOOT! :)

I am off to purchase this right away. I need something to read for this weekend anyway. So thanks.

Lola Sharp said...

Already purchased and in the house. :)

Angelica said...

Hi! :) I just wanted to be a reason you had something yummy today! Wish I could say eat one for me! :)

Jessica Lemmon said...

Congrats to Kiersten! This book looks fantastic!

my copy of this book has reached massachussetts. i hope it doesn't decide to be fashionably late and arrive tomorrow.

enjoy your dove chocolate!

Patty Blount said...

My preordered copy just hit my Kindle about 10 minutes ago. But I am dayjobbing so it must wait until I visit the gym later.

Go eat your chocolate now!

Cynthia Reese said...

This is NOT a comment, because I don't think Linda DESERVES chocolate. This is a non-comment. This is SUCH a non-comment that it is a non-non-NON comment.

Oh, go ahead. Eat the blasted Dove. And read PARANORMALCY. You're gonna anyway, right? So I might as well give you my blessings on two wonderful treats in a day. ;-)

Go Wolf Pack!

Have you been practicing your special Wolf Pack growl, Linda?

Raaaawr!

I hope you bought two bags of Dove, because I think you'll get to indulge a bit. :) Whoo-hoo for the Wolf Pack!!!

Linda G. said...

Let's see...one, two, three...Wow! That's nine pieces of Dove milk chocolate now. Yum!

Kelly -- Great! Hope you enjoy it. If you don't, blame my agent. ;)

Lola -- You are on the ball! :)

Angelica -- Thanks! I WILL eat an extra one for you, just because you're so sweet. :)

Jessica -- It is, according to all the buzz. :)

Abby -- Hope it gets there today! And thanks. I always enjoy my chocolate. :)

Patty -- *chomps chocolate* Okie-dokie. It's a tough job, but somebody has to do it. ;)

Cynthia -- That's pretty blabby for a non-comment. But that's okay. Angelica wanted me to eat an extra chocolate for her, so I don't need yours. ;p (Thanks! :) I appreciate even grudging blessings.)

Tawna -- Raaaawr! Aaaa-oooooo! ;)

That IS a gorgeous cover! Best of everything to Keirsten White.

Crystal said...

I read the first big that was pre-released online, and it was GOOD. Can't wait to read the rest.

I think this should be a nomnomNOM comment, since chocolate is so good.

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

Oh my word, I love this book. It's so shiny and beautiful and delicious. Like chocolate. Except with a taser.

JohnO said...

I'd strongly consider ordering the book. But NOT from Amazon. How about a link to a good indie, like Powell's?

Linda G. said...

Demery -- Isn't it? I know Kiersten is happy with it, too. :)

Crystal -- *pops another chocolate in mouth* If you insist... ;)

Carolina -- Chocolate with a taser? LOL! Now, THAT would be a powerful good treat. ;)

John -- Um...I'm not familiar with Powell's. *sheepish grin* It's in Oregon, isn't it? Maybe you link to it from Twitter. :)

I do not believe in paying shipping if I don't have to, nor being patient, so I'm picking it up in one of those places where books live until you buy them and take them home with you, which is convenient, since that is the exact plan I have for Paranormalcy.

SM Schmidt said...

Being a tool of propaganda to spread the Paranormalcy & chocolate always brings a smile to my face.

I shouldn't buy another book. Really, I have too much on my plate. I don't have the time. I'm really stressed out ... oh, darn it. Who'm I kidding? I totally am getting this book. Linda, you're such an enabler...

Elisabeth Black said...

I started the sample on her publisher's website, and couldn't stop. Will definitely pick this book up sometime, very bleepin' fun.

Linda G. said...

Elizabeth -- Hey, I'm with you on the shipping. If I don't get free shipping, fuhgetaboutit.

SM -- Did you just call me a tool? Well, you wouldn't be the first. ;)

Out of the woodwork (Hi, Nelsa!) -- Sorry about that! Oh, and don't forget to buy some extra chocolate while you're at it. ;)

Elisabeth -- LOL! I know, right? Looks like it will be an extremely fun read. :)
