I’m An Awful Tease

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.
