At Last: Deleted Chapter of ANNA



THANK YOU for spreading the word about Anna's e-book sale, THANK YOU for your generous patience, and THANK YOU to the incredible Simini Blocker, who drew the above illustration. It's exactly how I imagine Anna. I am such a lucky author!

Here, at last, is the deleted chapter of Anna and the French Kiss. 

I sincerely hope that you enjoy it.

  20. Hi! I just read Anna and the french kiss. I found it in my local library and was reminded that John Green had mentioned it. I really liked it! I liked that it was not JUST a love story but also very much a story about friendship and getting to know yourself and so on. I have been thinking lately that all the best books are like that, beacuse life is like that. Just wanted to tell you that. :)
    Love from Sweden!

  22. I LOVE IT AND I LOVE ANNA. Believe it or not, I picked up the book again last night to read parts of it. I think I'm going to get a paperback copy just to annotate it. I NEVER ANNOTATE BOOKS.

    And the illustration is tooo cute. More character drawings, please!!

  24. Thank you so much for this extra, i was truly happy :)
    You are a really amazing writer, did you know that? I've read your two works in english (unfortunately there isn't a portuguese edition - btw, wouldn't you consider it?) and felt those two love stories in an intense way. That is what is amazing about your writting style: you can truly understand people. Althought it's considered chicklit, for me it's much better than that: it is so vivid and real. Sorry if I can't express better but i really wanted to convey to you my gratitude and admiration for your work.
    Of course I love etienne and lola (my two faves characters) but I think your work is much more than "wow, etienne is hot". It's deep, emotional and so beautiful. Oh and you make the most sexy scenes ever... it may not have even a kiss but it is as intense as they were kissing. Yes you are THAT good :)

    Lots of kisses from Portugal

  28. My best friend texted me one day and was like "You have to read this!!" Ever since like 2nd grade we have traded books and names of authors we found worth reading, and I have to say this is definitely worth reading! I read it in three days and got very behind on homework, but totally worth it! When I found this extra chapter I almost wet my pants (but I didn't hahah). Literally this book is everything I would ever hope to happen to me, I mean who wouldn't want to find love in Paris?! xoxo
