ISLA PRE-ORDERS: STICKERRRRRRRRRRS!


When you pre-order Isla and the Happily Ever After from one of THESE 50+ INDEPENDENT BOOKSTORES, not only do you get a *signed* copy of the book, you also get these buttons, a chance at this tote bag, and . . . a sheet of stickers!

Stickers that you could put ANYWHERE.

I placed some stickers on this guitar case!


On these reusable water bottles!


On this skateboard!


On this laptop (beside my favorite WTF podcast sticker)!


Even . . . on this best friend!


If I had a school notebook, I would have stuck them on that, too. Stickers ALWAYS improve the appearance of school notebooks and binders!

(I'm glad I don't have a school notebook.)

(Because that would mean I'd be in school.)

(School is terrible.)

(Don't listen to me. School is awesome.)

(People in schools are terrible.)

(Seriously, don't listen to me.)

(Just having flashbacks.)

(Ohmygod, school.)

Anyway, aren't these stickers GREAT? Most of them were designed by the fantastic team at Penguin, though, I must confess, I'm especially enamored of the City Pie Guy sticker.


My dear friend Manning Krull—who not only designed this website, but who also translates all of the French language bits in my novels—made it a few years ago, on a secret surprise commission from my husband, for my Lola and the Boy Next Door tour. We had it printed on T-shirts and gave them out at events. It makes me happy that we get to use it again!

P.S. Manning runs an incredibly helpful website called Cool Stuff in Paris—a guide to both practical and weird stuff—that I think a lot of you would dig. Check it out.

In conclusion . . . if you haven't pre-ordered a signed copy of Isla yet, I hope you'll consider it. At least for the free goodies!

P.P.S. Here's an excerpt of the first fifty pages to help sway you.

P.P.P.S. And here's a reminder to my international readers that Malaprop's will take your orders.
