I’m An Awful Tease

March 5th, 2014 • Kate

Guys, you know how sometimes an editor or agent will post something online, like, “Wow, I just read the BEST manuscript! Too bad you have to wait six months to read it! Hahaha!” I totally hate that. And yet… guys, I have just reread the BEST manuscript. Isla and the Happily Ever After is everything you could possibly want in a romance, and a perfect follow up to Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door. If you’re not already madly in love with Stephanie Perkins as a writer (as a writer only — I know her husband well, and you don’t want to get in between those two lovebirds!), you will be after finishing Isla.

“But Daphne,” you sigh, “when can I get my hands on an Isla of my very own?”

How’s August 14th strike you?

We’ll have more news soon about a fantastically fun pre-order campaign Dutton is putting together, and we may have even more to whet your whistle with soon, but in the meantime, how about a giveaway?


Though most of Isla is set in Paris and New York, there’s another European city also featured. To enter to win this cool tote bag and a paperback copy of Lola, where would you go in Europe if you had a weekend, and money was no object? One commenter below will win!

UPDATE: You have until Monday to post a comment, and I’ll pick THREE lucky winners instead of just one, thanks to Steph! And yes, we will ship internationally!

FINAL UPDATE: We have our winners! Feel free to continue to add your comment below to join the conversation, but I’ve already picked the winners and have notified them.

Be Sociable, Share!

    I've always wanted to go to Budapest. That city is just layers and layers of history, one on top of one another, and I just think it'd be amazing to explore for a couple days even though I don't speak a lick of Hungarian. Also, I've heard that the thermal springs are divine and that sounds so relaxing right now, I might just run myself a bath and pretend I'm there! Thanks for the giveaway! I'm a big fan of Stephanie Perkins' books, and I'm glad I saw her twitter for this contest ๐Ÿ™‚

    I'd love to visit Monaco, especially if money was no object as then I could sample the best of the shopping and the food as well as hiring a yacht for a beautiful journey into the Med. I'd love to relax in the wonderful sunshine of such a beautiful place and enjoy the best delights of both France and Italy, not to mention investigating all the fascinating old alleyways.
