STALKING JACK THE RIPPER mass market paperback edition + Thomas Cresswell novella

51lhZH3xyHL._SX307_BO1,204,203,200_STALKING JACK THE RIPPER is going to be available in mass market paperback editions! AND THEY’VE GOT FUN COVERS FOR THEM!  i’m so thrilled to share this story with the adult market and a whole new set of readers.

now, no matter what your reading preference is, there’ll be a version for you. SJTR is available in Hardcover, trade paperbacks, ebooks, audio cds, iBooks, audible, and mass market paperbacks (as of April). pinch me, please.

so…what does this have to do with the MEETING THOMAS CRESSWELL novella? Thomas’s story will be included as bonus content!

i’ve had daily messages and emails from people who’ve either read it and wanted to own it in print form, or readers who missed out on the HUNTING PRINCE DRACULA preorder giveaway altogether, and i’ve been eager to find some way to make those requests happen.

including it in SJTR was the best solution since it’s a prequel to the opening of that story. it details what Thomas was doing the night he met Audrey Rose, and proceeds to tell the story through his deductive lens for the first few chapters. i had such a blast writing from his POV and hope that you enjoy reading it as much!

mass market versions aren’t very common for YA books, and i’m infinitely grateful for all of the love and support this series has gotten from both readers and my publisher. thank you a thousand, million times.

edited to add:

**the novella is included in the mass market paperback ONLY, and will not be available anywhere else. (please make sure you preorder the correct paperback if you want the novella.)

**mass market paperbacks are the smaller paperbacks that are usually printed for adult mystery and thriller series. (think beach reads and books found in airports and grocery/drug stores, etc.)

**the trade paperback of STALKING JACK THE RIPPER does not include the novella, but it does have the same cover as the original hardcover version. (and it’s already out, whereas the mass market paperback will hit shelves on April 24th.)

STALKING JACK THE RIPPER book 3 title reveal!

the wait is FINALLY over! i hope you had a great time playing along with me on social media as i teased clues to the mystery of WHO the title historical figure is for book three in the STALKING JACK THE RIPPER series. some of you put the clues together just like Cressworth and it was so much fun to see your theories!

this book’s anthem has been “magic, mischief, and mayhem” and has been A LOT of dark fun to write. for those who paid close attention while reading both SJTR and HPD, there were clues tucked away in each of them. SJTR had an entire chapter devoted to the setting, and HPD included a letter with another big hint as to the lead title figure.

the real life murderer is a bit more obscure than Jack the Ripper and Dracula, but there is still a true crime element that i think you guys are REALLY going to like. i can’t say much without giving away spoilers, but just know my excitement can hardly be contained. which sounds weird because i’m talking about a serial killer but…i digress 😉

and now…

without further adieu…

i present the title, the official summary, and the tentative release date for SJTR #3.

*drum roll*

ESCAPING FROM HOUDINI 

coming 9/18/18

In this third installment in the #1 bestselling Stalking Jack the Ripper series, a luxurious ocean liner becomes a floating prison of scandal, madness, and horror when passengers are murdered one by one…with nowhere to run from the killer. 

Audrey Rose Wadsworth and her partner-in-crime-investigation, Thomas Cresswell, are en route to New York to help solve another blood-soaked mystery. Embarking on a week-long voyage across the Atlantic on the opulent RMS Etruria, they’re delighted to discover a traveling troupe of circus performers, fortune tellers, and a certain charismatic young escape artist entertaining the first-class passengers nightly.

But then, privileged young women begin to go missing without explanation, and a series of brutal slayings shocks the entire ship. The strange and disturbing influence of the Moonlight Carnival pervades the decks as the murders grow ever more freakish, with nowhere to escape except the unforgiving sea. It’s up to Audrey Rose and Thomas to piece together the gruesome investigation as even more passengers die before reaching their destination. But with clues to the next victim pointing to someone she loves, can Audrey Rose unravel the mystery before the killer’s horrifying finale?

Please be sure to add it to goodreads here!
