I've been a-working, working, working, so it was my husband who reminded me that I still needed to pick a giveaway winner. Whoops.

(Thank you, Jarrod! Always looking out for me.)

Katy Upperman is the randomly-selected winner—I always use this—for the advanced copy of Mindi Scott's Live Through This. Hurrah, Katy!

Speaking of work, which these days means Isla and the Happily Ever After, I'd like to give a massive, sparkles and rockets, whipped cream and cherries, biscuits and gravy THANK YOU to my author-friend Myra McEntire, who has been responsible for 95% of my productivity since the beginning of summer. I thank my lucky stars every day that we found each other when we needed each other the most. Because of Myra, Isla will be an actual THING that you guys can BUY.*

*Also because of my publisher. I love you, Dutton!

Sooooooo I've been getting tons of questions about Isla on Twitter, but mainly the same ones again and again. I hope this Frequently Asked Questions will help:


WHEN WILL IT BE OUT?!?!!

There is no set release date, but we're hoping for Summer 2013.

WHEN WILL WE SEE THE COVER?!?!!

It doesn't exist yet. So . . . I'm not sure. My best guess is sometime this winter.

WHEN WILL WE GET A DESCRIPTION?!?!!

See the above answer, but maybe you'll get a teaser sooner than that.

IF YOU'VE ALREADY WRITTEN IT, WHY HAVEN'T YOU PUBLISHED IT YET?!?!!

I have not already written it. I am writing it. And my editor will be editing it. Also, publishing is superlong and time consuming. There are tons of awesome people involved and lots of boring-but-crucial steps. I promise you that you will have it as soon as it's ready to be had.

IS IT ABOUT ISLA AND JOSH?!?!!

My lips are sealed.

WILL ANNA AND ÉTIENNE AND LOLA AND CRICKET BE IN IT?!?!!

All I can say is that you will probably see the characters whom you want to see.


Thank you for being curious, everyone! I'm sorry that these answers couldn't be more exciting. Soon, soon. ;-)


EDITED TO ADD:



Ha ha ha! Oh, man! I can never resist THE AMES.

Thank you, dear friend, for these excellent questions.

(A) Hair is the most important thing in the universe, so yes.

(B) Every chapter title is named after a menu item from Taco Bell, so double yes.
