Paranormalcy's Book Birthday Party

Today, my friend Kiersten's book Paranormalcy hits the stores. This is freaking exciting. I read Paranormalcy back when it was a wee manuscript and Kiersten said things like, "Do you think it's good?" and I said things like, "Heck yeah! Are you BLIND?!?" Yeah, my supportive friend skilz awe me sometimes too.

Anyway, in honor of Paranormalcy, I'd like to invite you to a party. I've got a stellar lineup. And Kiersten, please pay close attention. You'll be accosted by these people on the street today. Please don't call the cops; I have to pay them extra if they get arrested. Okay?

David Hasselhoff will be bringing the balloons.

And if you're lucky, I'll also sing my hit song, "Do! With olives!"


My ninja support squad will provide the music. So please don't be worried if you hear dueling electric guitars coming from thin air.

Don't mind the ninja ego, peeps. You ARE this awesome.


Princess Leia will do her dancing routine for us, and all the guys will gawp.

Um. On second thought, never mind that.


Then, Richard Simmons will leap out of the bushes and give us all heart attacks.

Happy book birthday, Paranormalcy! Um...why are you all rolling around on the ground and clutching your chests?


But seriously, people. Paranormalcy is a fabulous book, and I'm proud to call Kiersten my friend. I hope you'll pop on over and congratulate her today.

I think you might be the best party planner EVER!

Yay for random acts of giftiness on Paranormalcy's birthday! Can't wait to get my copy so I can dig in and read. (Too bad I have to work in the middle of the day. I'll be totally distracted when at work.)

Taffy said...

What a great friend you are to line up so much fun on Paranormalcy's Bday!

What an awesome birthday party! I think you should try and squeeze in the dog that says Batman in case things go array (when Richard Simmons jumps out) and you need a superhero there.

I've really been looking forward to Paranormalcy and can't wait to get my hands on a copy.

Carolyn V. said...

I have heard so many great things about that book! I can't wait to read it! =)

Stephanie Perkins said...

YAAAAAAAAAY! I love this party!

Carrie Harris said...

Hey! Thanks for coming to my party, people! Have some bacon. I serve bacon at all my parties. :)

Giles Hash said...

Getting Paranormalcy is on my to-do list for this week... along with getting Blameless by Gail Carriger. Oh, I just hope I don't forget the other important items on that list...like eating and breathing :D

Kiersten White said...

Did he have to wear the sparkly "SWEAT" shirt? I wanted him to wear one that said "SWEET".

Still, The Hoff more than made up for it!

(Also, MWAH! MWAH! And another fake internet kiss: MWAH! Thank you for being an awesome crit partner!)

Kiersten White said...

Giles--I totally forgot to eat today. Be careful.

Shannon O'Donnell said...

Ha ha ha! That is the best party ev-ah!! I won a pre-ordered copy and am DYING to read it. When it comes, I am going to shred the package and dive right in - I don't care what the hubby and 3 kiddos say! :-)

Larissa said...

Yay for Kiersten!

Also, every post you make makes me even more excited for BTIB. Seriously. You are so so hilarious, I can hardly stand it.

Claire Dawn said...

What an awesome birthday party! I've read it, and promptly remember why I hate reading series. Isn't the next one out yet???

Mason Bundschuh said...

I see you have a stellar lineup. Happy Berfday to Paranormalcy.

*Am I the only one who is going bonkers over the apostrophe misuse of "Ninja's With Guitars"? gggaaaarrrrggghhhhhh!

I can only assume that it's not really an apostrophe, but instead the ninja's katana slicing through the plural ninjas.

Kiki Hamilton said...

Happy Launch Day Kiersten! I just ordered PARANORMALCY last night and can't wait to read! I've heard fantastic things about this book!!

and Carrie - will you pass me the bacon please?
