Salt Lake City,
Kiersten White will read and sign Supernaturally, the second volume in her debut trilogy for young adult readers.
In Supernaturally, a lot has changed in the six months since Evie escaped from the International Paranormal Containment Agency with her shape-shifter boyfriend, Lend. Evie’s not-so-normal past keeps creeping up on her and things get pretty complicated…
Kiersten White is the New York Times bestselling author of Paranormalcy. Born and raised in Utah, White graduated from BYU. She has one tall husband and two small children and lives near the ocean, where her life is perfectly normal. This abundance of normal led her to a fascination with all things paranormal, including but not limited to vampires, faeries, and pop culture.
Hope to see you there!
It’s been a while since we’ve done an Etsy shop giveaway here at Fire and Ice so I thought it would be fun to combine our Teaser Tuesday with some Evie inspired bling! Our teaser comes from
Evie finally has the normal life she’s always longed for. But she’s shocked to discover that being ordinary can be . . . kind of boring. Just when Evie starts to long for her days at the International Paranormal Containment Agency, she’s given a chance to work for them again. Desperate for a break from all the normalcy, she agrees.
But as one disastrous mission leads to another, Evie starts to wonder if she made the right choice. And when Evie’s faerie ex-boyfriend Reth appears with devastating revelations about her past, she discovers that there’s a battle brewing between the faerie courts that could throw the whole supernatural world into chaos. The prize in question? Evie herself.
So much for normal.
“..the box Lend took out of his pocket defitnitely didn’t have socks in it. “Is is Sparkly?” I bounced impatiently on my heels as he opened it.” He laughed and pulled out a delicate silver chain, threaded through an open heart-shaped pendant.“ -p 44 Supernaturally
EvelynMaeCreations has generously donated one of her handmade necklaces similar to what I envision Lend giving Evie in Supernaturally.
She says…”Jewelry to me is about the experience you have or can have because of how you feel when you wear a favorite piece. I want the wearer of my creations to be transformed by the pieces they choose to wear on a daily basis or even for that special occasion. When you add a little sparkle to an outfit, it says more about the person and who they are and want to be than just that they’re wearing jewelry. Every single piece is meant to be special and beloved by the future owner. That is what Evelyn Mae Creations is about.”

Happy Monday everybody! I have been reading up a storm and have a ton of reviews to write but first a post about the weekend. Saturday I went to the Paranormalcy book signing at the King’s English bookstore with Kiersten White. She is originally from Utah so it was fun to have her introduce some of her friends from her very own High school days, two of whom inspired a scene from Paranormalcy about being blond and needing to wear mascara. During the question and answer session we learned:
- Paranormalcy was not the first book she pitched. She wrote another which got rejected over and over before going back to re-edit and submit Paranormalcy. If at first you don’t succeed writers try try again.
- She loves reading contemporary YA and middle grade books
- Supernaturally is the name of book #2 in the series. Due to be released around April of next year. It’s about Evie and life where she gets a lot of the things she’s always wanted but realizes life is still hard. We’ll learn a lot about Evie’s past and enter the faerie realms. A new character named Jack is introduced, Kiersten’s all -time character to write
- Kiersten draws many of her paranormal creatures from traditional folklore. One of her favorites is the hag who sits on people’s chests and makes it so they can’t wake up or drags them into the water. She also loves the Pixies and kelpies of European mythology
- You’ll never see a love triangle in her books. She did not intend Paranormalcy to be a love triangle. She also thinks as a storyteller it’s important to have a resolution and ending to each of her books.
Kiersten has a super fun and bubbly personality. It was so fun to meet her and she even tweeted all of us who came to thank us.
Just for our blog followers (old and new) we are giving away an author signed hardback copy of Paranormalcy to U.S. readers. Please fill in the form here
Contest ends October 13, 2010.
