ATTENTION: Giveaway for High School Educators



This post is for high school educators in the United States of America.

(Sorry, everyone else! Shipping gets expensive.)

If you are a school librarian OR if you have a library in your classroom, hello! I have several copies of Anna and the French Kiss hanging around my office, and I'd love to get them into your collection. I currently have:

8 U.S. paperbacks
1 Australian paperback (exact same book, different font)

I also have:

3 paperback copies of Anna in Spanish
8 paperback copies of Lola in Spanish

If CONTENT will be an issue, please be aware that my novels do contain swearing. Also, here is a list of the sexual content inside Anna, and here is the list for Lola.

If you'd like a signed! free! copy of any of the above, please leave a comment on this post telling me which book you're interested in. If you're reading this on Goodreads or through any other feed, you MUST leave the comment on my actual website to be considered. Books are first come, first serve. If you have a Spanish collection, I'm happy to give you a copy of both Anna and Lola (until I run out, of course).

My fabulous assistant Martha Thimble will be the one replying to your comments.

And if you're not an educator (and somehow you're still reading this), I would greatly appreciate any help in spreading the word! Thank you, friends. xo

  1. Do homeschoolers count? ;) If so, I'm very interested!

    1. Hee hee! Sadly, no. ;-) I'm trying to get my novels into the hands of as many teens as possible.

  2. I would love a copy of Anna and a Spanish copy of Lola for my class library! I teach in Pasadena, TX, and most of my students are Mexican-American. Having a copy of a book in Spanish allows my students to share their reading with family at home who might not be able to read English.
    Thank you so much!

    2. Regarding number two... what I meant to ask was "Would you like ANNA in Spanish, English, or both?" :)

  3. I'd love a copy of Anna. I had one, but somehow it wandered away and never came back to me... (seems like that happens to the best books)

  7. We would love a copy of either/both. I teach in Newberg, Oregon. I just tweeted a picture at Martha of the empty spot on my classroom library shelves where the books wouldn't be... I say wouldn't be because they are fantastic. I'm halfway through Anna (she's home for the holiday break), and I think my students would love it. Thank you!

  8. My females students LOVE your books. "I want a Cricket," said one of my sophomores a couple months ago. I could use a copy of either Anna or Lola in my classroom. Love your books!

  10. I really wish that I was in the US, but I am in Canada, and a free signed book would be awesome as I am in the process of setting up my very first book blog and could use all the books I can get to review and get the word out. Maybe next time.
    Have a great weekend.

    I'm the librarian at Reynolds High School in Troutdale, OR and am working to build my Spanish collection. I would love either (or both!?) books en espanol, if you have any left. (I already have both in English in our collection.)

    Thanks for the generous opportunity!

  18. This is incredibly generous of you. Even if I'm way too late (I probably am), I just want to say thank you for helping us connect kids and books. This is how readers are "reborn."

  19. This is so wonderful of you!
    If I'm not incredibly late to the game, I would love a copy of either / both of the Spanish versions. I'm a library in an international school and we've been told on recent surveys that our students would like to see more fiction in other languages and I think these would be great additions to our collection.

  24. I am a high school librarian and I would love a copy of any and all of these! There are a lot of Spanish speakers at my high school, so I would take English and Spanish! Plus, I live right down the road in Hickory, so I could arrange to pick them up at Malaprop's or something. I'll be there at a book signing on May 31st!

  25. If, by chance, there are any books left, I would love one for my secondary English classroom! I have recommended your books to so many of my students already! Thank you for thinking of the classrooms out there with teachers who buy their own supplies, etc.

  26. I teach English in Florida and I'm lucky enough to have a principal who loves to see students read. I have a decent book budget, so we already have an ANNA in our room. But I want to thank you, Stephanie, for supporting the educators. My students love your book! (And I do too!)

    Hello there! This is Mrs. Salatino and I teach ESL in Yakima, WA. One of my former ESL students just told me about this opportunity! I hope I'm not too late to request some autographed copies of Anna and Lola in Spanish. I'd love to add them to my classroom library that way my Spanish speaking students can enjoy them. Thank you.

  28. Hi! I would love a copy of Anna and Lola in Spanish for my ELL students. Each year I get more and more students who come from other countries, mostly South America, and we have this year I created a Spanish collection. I only have a few books, mostly curriculum needed titles so wonderfully written, fun titles would be a plus.

  31. I would love a copy of both/either! I am a teacher at Ridgefield Park HS in NJ. I have a classroom library and would like to share this with our school library. Our school library has a small (but growing) Spanish book collection for our ESL students. I would love for them to have access to books like these. Thanks!
