18 days until publication (!!!) and Cressworth items for your bookish collection

guys…there are only 18 days left until HUNTING PRINCE DRACULA is in the world!!!! HOW on earth has it already been a year since STALKING JACK THE RIPPER came out??? (side-note, there are just over two weeks left to snag a MEETING THOMAS CRESSWELL novella, don’t forget to upload your receipts to claim one!)

i am so blown away by the complete and utter outpouring of love and support for these characters and stories. you guys make this even more amazing and i hope you know how much i appreciate you and your positive word of mouth excitement. i have a few fun things to share that i hope you’ll adore as much as i do.

i get asked often on social media about book related goodies and where to purchase them and am listing out a few AMAZING Cresswell and Wadsworth merch for yourself or the book lover in your family. (i figured it would be easiest to have a post with them, so everyone who’s interested has an easy place to find links.)

Behind the Pages store has created amazing “Cressworth” merchandise (soap, lip balm, perfume, lotion + more) and it is one of their September “ships of the month.” It means it’s an exclusive item that will only be available for the month of September only. If you’d like to snag it (and you SO do… they are to die for), definitely don’t wait or they’ll be gone.

Cressworth “Ship of the month” (available until October 1, 2017)

**Other products are listed under “Audrey” or “Thomas” in her shop.

Novelly Yours Candles unveiled two new candles based on HPD and I’m totally ordering both because they look AWESOME.

Audrey Rose candle (available September 8th, listed under “floral”)

Smells like: bergamot, rose, and honey

Thomas candle (available September 8th, listed under “cologne/musky)

Smells like: coffee, cotton, and cologne

Foggy Knight is available now and is the one I helped to design. I am OBSESSED with its new design.

Smells like: crackling firewood, storms, Earl Grey and fallen leaves

Read and Wonder created two different bookmarks for HPD and SJTR. I seriously cannot get enough of them and am LOVE seeing them in your pictures online!

Flickering Tales is a delightful candle shop that’s recently added Thomas and Audrey Rose candles. I just got a set and let me say…they smell as fabulous as they look!

Phantom Rin is the extremely talented artist behind the character cards you see posted here and various places online. One of the questions I get asked the most is where to find the character cards, and those can be found in her store along with postcards, stickers, t-shirts, journals and so much more.

Wick and Fable also has Miss Wadsworth and Mr. Cresswell candles and i can attest to how great they both smell. they’re so pretty i haven’t been able to burn them yet, though!

IG contest, preorder incentive, fall tour updates

hello friends! i have a few exciting things to update you on:

one: i’m hosting an epic Instagram giveaway right now that features some fun HUNTING PRINCE DRACULA swag designed by novelly yours and read and wonder.

 

it ends TOMORROW NIGHT, so be sure to enter ASAP. two winners will be chosen and announced Tuesday on my instagram. (one grand prize winner and one runner up.)

two: there is going to be a preorder incentive and i’ve gotten A LOT of questions on what it is and how people will be able to enter. the announcement will likely be in early August (SOON!) but for now i can say that taking a screen shot of your receipts will be what you need to upload it into the preorder website.

three: the fall tour will also be announced soon, AND each location will have signed stock available AND you can preorder through each store and have it personalized for you. i’ll post more details on how to do that once the tour/cities are announced.
