Sixteen-year-old Evie’s job is bagging and tagging paranormals. Possessing the strange ability to see through their glamours, she works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency. But when someone–or something–starts taking out the vamps, werewolves, and other odd beasties she’s worked hard to help become productive members of society, she’s got to figure it out before they all disappear and the world becomes utterly normal. Normal is so overrated

Our very first books for Japan auction is for a brand new hardback author signed copy of Paranormalcy by Kiersten White from my personal collection. 100% of the proceeds from this auction go to tsunami victims in Japan. Place your bid amount in the comments below. Ends April 5, 2011 at 8 AM MST.

In the news today, special thanks to Katie’s book blog for the incredibly kind post she made about our book related jewelry. It is amazing to me how the book blogger community supports one another.

Yesterday it was an absolute shock to see the images of Japan in the wake of a tsunami. I lived in Hokkaido, Japan as back in 1994 so my heart aches for my host families. All my love and prayers to them today. Thinking of you at Teine Jinja in Sapporo, the Tetsuo Ito family,Takeharu & Mizue Ishii, & the Nishikawa family in Memuro-Cho, Hokkaido Japan. I sincerely hope they are okay and that I will hear from them all in the future. Several of us Etsy shops are donating a portion of our proceeds to the Red Cross to aid in relief efforts.To see a full list of artists and crafters who are donating click here. I was touched this morning by the numerous beautiful treasuries of art created in honor of Japan. This one is my favorite. I’ve posted all of the new relief art collections on StumbleUpon. Also, please head on over to YA author Maureen Johnson’s site for another way to contribute.
