the Capturing the Devil tour is here!

CapturingDevil_author tour

FAQ:

q: can i order a signed and personalized copy?

a: yes! you can preorder signed/personalized copies from any of my tour stops. contact the store for details on how.

q: do i need a ticket to attend one of the tour events?

a: this is a GREAT question to ask each store. (they all have different policies.)  

q: can i preorder a signed/personalized copy if i live outside of the US?

a: definitely! please check with the stores, but i know for a fact at least a few offer INTL shipping. 

q: will there be preorder prizes given out this year?

a: heck yes! we’re getting close to announcing what it will be, and i am SO excited!

q: will the preorder prizes be open INTL?

a: unfortunately, it’s not legal for a US publisher to open it internationally. like last year, my team is looking into ways of getting signed copies to readers outside of the US and also including the preorder prizes. (standard shipping rates usually apply, which is out of our control.)  

q: will you be touring outside of the US?

a: i am not able-bodied, so traveling is really hard for me, but i’d love to one day! 

q: will there be any special editions of CAPTURING THE DEVIL?

a: i’ve worked with a few book subscription boxes this year (and there will be signed copies), but i haven’t heard of any additional editions yet. i wrote the Thomas Cresswell novella—BECOMING THE DARK PRINCE (out in July!)—as bonus content that will be available to everyone.  

q: if i ordered one of the special edition book boxes, does that count as a preorder?

a: that’s a question for my publisher, and as soon as i find out, i’ll share more.

q: will there be a boxed set?

a: yes! there *is* a special edition of the boxed set (B&N’s will feature all four books signed, but they’re VERY limited!), plus i’m signing a gorgeous double-sided poster that will be exclusive to the boxed sets.

q: if we order a boxed set does that count as a preorder for CTD?

a: another fantastic question for my publisher! i don’t believe so since it has a later publication date, but will update on social media when i know for certain. 

Official STALKING JACK THE RIPPER series merchandise arrives today!

Set your clocks, friends! TODAY at 7pm EST Dogwood Lane Boutique’s Etsy shop goes live!

(https://www.etsy.com/shop/DogwoodLaneBoutique)

my sister is my best friend and I’m so happy we got to work on a dream project together! She has a few signed CTD bookmarks, a postcard with one of my favorite CTD quotes, (plus the opposite side is a ticket to the worlds fair!) and Cressworth t-shirts.


I designed each item and hope you love them as much as I do! If you’d like a sneak peek, check out her newest post on Facebook or Instagram to see the t-shirts and other goodies!


she’s already received TONS of messages, so i’m not sure how long everything will last. new items and designs will be added in the coming weeks.

ESCAPING FROM HOUDINI is now available everywhere!

dear readers,

for someone who works with words on a daily basis, i’m finding it EXTREMELY difficult to express how excited i am that ESCAPING FROM HOUDINI is in stores TODAY!!! this whole publishing journey has felt like a wonderful dream, and it’s totally surreal that my THIRD book is now in the world. i still can’t quite process it.

this book was an emotional roller coaster for me and i cannot wait for you to hop aboard this wild ride. prepare to feel ALL the emotions. i put my characters through the ringer and i’m so proud of how they weathered this storm.

thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your support and love. please do tag me in your pictures today, i cannot wait to see them!

much love,

kerri

ESCAPING FROM HOUDINI pre-publication note to readers

CAN YOU BELIEVE PUB DAY IS ALMOST HERE?!?!?! ONE MORE WEEK! holy heck…i seriously cannot believe the THIRD book is about to hit shelves. to hold you over until release day, i’m revealing the Moonlight Carnival characters along with some facts about them on my social media. (the fist two have already been unveiled, so check out my facebook, instagram, or twitter this week for details!)

here’s a little bit of what you can expect from this next mysterious adventure. 

Escaping from Houdini is a dark Victorian story filled with illusions. it explores the line between fantasy and reality, and how that sometimes blurs. everyone aboard this ship is a performer in their own way, each playing a role. danger lurks when you play pretend, though, and complications often arise.

EFH reveals a different layer of feminism—one where the choice of who you share your heart with is just as empowering as your choice in career. it boldly states that young women should make choices based on their own needs instead of fear.

this particular journey is not only a literal journey across the sea, but an emotional one, too. while traveling across the ocean, a ship often encounters turbulent waters, and this story is filled with ups and downs, both small and grand in nature. i hope your stomach aches with unexpected laughter and your heart pounds as well as flutters. i hope this journey gives you a tremendous emotional experience—one that is brimming with love and heart break, indecision and ultimately redemption. life often gives us storms, but it’s how we weather them that shows our true character.

above everything else, i hope for a few hours you’ll fall under the spell of the Moonlight Carnival. that perhaps you, too, might start to question the motives of your favorite characters. maybe you’ll discover sleight of word is just as clever of a trick as sleight of hand. who knows? you may end up questioning everything, even your own heart. 

one more word of warning before you set sail: be careful of getting in too deep. you just might lose your heart and your head to this magical traveling show.

welcome aboard the RMS Etruria where magic, mischief, and mayhem await your arrival under star-speckled skies.

xoxo
