two words, six letters, five years in the making. THE END. CAPTURING THE DEVIL is officially off to the printer!

this morning i officially turned in first pass pages for CAPTURING THE DEVIL. i’ve spent the last five years working on books in this series, and am forever grateful for all of the love and support i’ve gotten along the way.

thank you for going on these adventures with me and Audrey Rose and Thomas. i sincerely cannot wait for you to read this last adventure in September–it’s so very special to me and i am so proud of how it’s all come full circle.

it’s the longest book in the series and i’ll share chapter art and more stats in the coming weeks as publication day draws ever closer. just ten weeks left!!!

ALSO! please don’t forget to snag a copy of Thomas’s novella, BECOMING THE DARK PRINCE, next Monday! It’s up for pre-order on Amazon, B&N, and iBooks.

CAPTURING THE DEVIL pre-order and FAQ:

the preorder prizes will be announced either this week or next from what I’ve heard, so if you’ve already preordered your copy, please snap a screenshot of your receipt.  

(JIMMY books will have a website specifically where you can upload your info and receipt with instructions on how to do it.)

Special editions: there are no special editions this year. i wrote the Thomas novella in place of it. (there’s also two different bonus chapters for those who ordered a FaeCrate or Beacon Book Box special edition box. each company has their own *exclusive* chapter.) 

Signed copies:

signed and personalized copies are available for preorder from each of my tour stops. please check in with each store for their policies. if you can’t make it out to an event, it’s the perfect way to still get a signed book!

Premier Collectables:

JIMMY books has arranged for Premier Collectables to once again offer signed copies along with the preorder prizes. they ship internationally, so readers who are interested outside of the US have the option to get the prizes too. Once the preorder prizes are announced, they’ll have it up on their website.

pre-order on Amazon, B&NiBooks and IndieBound.

Cheers to 2017!

“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.” – Neil Gaiman 


Happy New Year’s Eve, friends! Thank you all so much for spending your time with me during this wild debut year. I can’t believe I get to go on another journey with you for book two. (Title reveal coming soon!) I’m grateful for everything, especially the friendships I’ve made with my fellow debut authors, seasoned vets, and each and every reader, librarian, bookstagrammer, and blogger. You have all been shining stars and I’m so humbled to have shared this adventure with you. 


2017 is a new chapter, a new opportunity to shine our lights. A way for us to rage against darkness by promoting goodness, light and love. Let’s all make some wonderful art next year. And the year after, and forever more. Stay tuned for some pretty fun announcements in the coming weeks and months!  #2016bestnine #stalkingjacktheripper
