william-owain-herondale asked:

Hi PenguinTeen! Since there will be a hardcover of Isla and the Happily Ever After coming out in the new cover, when will the hardcovers of the other 2 books be having the new covers too? I wanted to purchase them in hardcover but it would be weird if the covers don't match up nicely :/

Hi there! Sadly, the answer to your question is no—once we go into paperback, we tend not to go back. But eventually there will be an ISLA paperback with the same hardcover look that will match the current ANNA and LOLA paperbacks, so if you want you can have them all matching in paperback. We know lots of people like their covers and formats to match, but it’s not always something we can control. 

In fact, we MIGHT someday have corresponding hardcovers for ANNA and LOLA. Hard to say - it’s mostly a matter of when we might (if ever) reprint the hardcover jackets and if there’s any substantial continued demand for hardcover editions. -JSG, Dutton

You know how to make this happen? Buy lots of copies of ANNA, LOLA, and ISLA!!

My editor (jsgabel) and agent (ktliterary) chime in on the cover issue.

I’m head-over-heels for my new covers, and I’d certainly love to see them on the hardcover editions of ANNA and LOLA. But this depends on sales. It depends on you. It’s pretty simple—books are expensive to print! It has to be worth my publisher’s time, money, and effort.

If you like my books, spread the word. Recommend them to friends, family, coworkers, the internet. That’s how this will happen.

There’s a fun Anna/Lola/Isla readalong happening—for fans and new readers! It starts July 31, and you can read about it here on Jamie’s blog.

When you pre-order Isla and the Happily Ever After, you’ll receive a sheet of Anna/Lola/Isla-related stickers! See all five stickers HERE.

Isla and the Happily Ever After is a Teen Top Pick from BookPage:

“It’s hard to imagine a more romantic tale than Isla and the Happily Ever After. With evocative settings like Paris, Manhattan and Barcelona, Perkins’ latest will leave readers swooning, sobbing—and rooting for Isla and Josh to write their own happy ending.”

Huzzah! Thank you, BookPage!
