New! Book! News!

I’m absolutely thrilled to announce the sale of my second YA anthology. Summer Days & Summer Nights: Twelve Love Stories will be released in Summer 2016 from the same WONDERFUL publishers who brought you My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories—Sara Goodman at St. Martin’s Press and Rachel Petty at Macmillan UK. Once again, I’ll be editing as well as contributing a story.

This collection will feature twelve new tales of romantic love, all set during the summer months, from twelve new (okay, okay—minus me, eleven!) outstanding authors:

Leigh Bardugo

Francesca Lia Block

Libba Bray

Cassandra Clare

Brandy Colbert

Tim Federle

Lev Grossman

Nina LaCour

Stephanie Perkins

Veronica Roth

Jon Skovron

Jennifer E. Smith

I am so, so grateful to each of these authors for their trust and enthusiasm. I mean. That’s an incredible list, right??

I’m also thankful for Kate Schafer Testerman, my kindhearted and always kick-ass agent. And I’m so happy and honored to be working with Sara Goodman and Rachel Petty again, because … because … they’re just so freaking great, you guys.

Here’s the official announcement from Publisher’s Weekly:

Sara Goodman at St. Martin’s has bought Stephanie Perkins’s second young adult anthology, Summer Days & Summer Nights: Twelve Love Stories, a collection of 12 romantic tales of young summer love, which includes contributions from Leigh Bardugo, Francesca Lia Block, Libba Bray, Cassandra Clare, Nina LaCour, Veronica Roth, Jennifer E. Smith, among others. Publication is slated for summer 2016; Kate Schafer Testerman at KT Literary brokered the deal for North American rights.

I hope you’re as excited as I am! Except I realize that’s not actually possible. (Because I’m REALLY REALLY SUPER EXCITED.) But I do hope this news makes you smile.

Because this book? It’s gonna be special. :-)

xo,

Steph

It was a scream with no words at first, rising higher and higher, a scream that tore her throat and brought the taste of metal into her mouth. It was a scream of loss so immense there was no speech for it. It was was the wordless cry of having the sky over your head, the air in your lungs, ripped away from you forever.

I like to think of Wil Herondale as the kind of driver who will always go past the speed limit while Jem rides shotgun, quietly criticizing his driving, and Tessa screams in the backseat
