HUNTING PRINCE DRACULA is now available!!!!

the day has finally arrived! HUNTING PRINCE DRACULA is now in the world and i don’t think this feeling of overwhelming gratitude will ever, ever get old. i’m so lucky to have so much love and support behind my books, and hope you know how very much it means to me.

This story was written from my heart and now it belongs to you, dear reader. I hope you love sinking your teeth into it! (I couldn’t resist at least ONE vampire pun!) Please tell all of your friends and share the release day love—your enthusiasm is one of my favorite things!

HPD birthday

Tonight I kick off the #HuntingPrinceDraculaTour with friends of the Knox county library in Knoxville, but for now I’m going to enjoy all of your beautiful pictures.

See you on the road, friends! Xoxo

in other non-freakout news, there’s only one more day left to snag your copy of MEETING THOMAS CRESSWELL before the preorder incentive disappears like Cinderella at midnight. (September 18th going into the 19th.)

if you’d like to get a copy, please take a screen shot of your receipt and upload it to the site before then. once the giveaway is closed, there won’t be another way to read the novella.

here’s where to upload your receipts and find more info

FAQ:

It says “US/CA only” and I live outside the US…

Since it’s an ebook it’s open internationally, so please upload your receipts!

I don’t see the submit button. Help!

If you’re using a mobile device sometimes they’ve been giving people trouble. Use a laptop or computer and that always works, promise.

When should I receive my novella?

The team at JIMMY books has been working hard to sort through all of the receipts and send out the novellas ASAP. Please allow up to two business days for it to arrive in your inbox. if it’s been two business days, please contact my publicist. (her info is under the contact page on my site.)

Do I have to preorder from a specific place?

Nope! You can preorder from any store or online retailer and upload the picture of your receipt to enter.

Where can I preorder a signed copy?

Any of my tour stops will have signed/personalized copies available and will ship. Please contact the stores for further details or instructions. (also? YOU ARE SO AWESOME, OMG.)

ahhhh that’s it for now….i’ll see you back here in TWO DAYS!!!!! WHEEEEE!

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!

Audrey Rose and Thomas magnetic bookmarks

“I am wholly bewitched” quote bookmark

 

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.

HUNTING PRINCE DRACULA Updates

 

 

card1.2-Audrey Rose_smallI swear I have the very BEST readers and social media friends in the world. Before I jump into a few updates, I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your enthusiasm and love for my characters is truly incredible. Thank you for all of the laughs and excitement on twitter, IG, and facebook.

Now for the updates:

* A whooooole lot of people have asked if HUNTING PRINCE DRACULA is available for preorder (!!!!!)…the answer is YES! I’m working on some preorder campaigns now (international), so please take screenshots of your orders and keep them handy. I’ll be posting more news about what’s up for grabs a little bit later.

  • ARCs — (Advanced Reader Copies given to bloggers, reviewers, media, bookstagrammers, etc.) are being formatted and will soon be printed off. I’ll be sure to post another update of when (and how) to put your request in. (Last year ARCs were rolling out in mid-April to give you an idea of timing. It may be the same this year—we shall both see!)
  • Cover Reveal — last year SJTR’s cover was revealed in April, I should know more of when to expect the reveal in the next week or two, and will probably be shouting and squealing all over the interwebs to let you know a date.
  • Is this a series? — the answer is YES! So far there are three mysteries for Audrey Rose and her crew to solve. (SJTR, HPD, and a third coming out next year.) If you’re interested in more? Preordering is one of the best ways to show a publisher that you’re in need of more adventures. Tell all your friends and post about your favorite book/series online. People take note of it!
  • Character cards — I have received A LOT of inquiries about the character cards currently in my giveaway and how and where to order them. They’re available in Phantom Rin’s redbubble store and can be found by clicking through to the link in the next sentence. (The ones I order and giveaway are listed under ‘Greeting Cards’ and then toggle down to ‘Postcard.’) Link to character cards: Click me!
  • FOGGY KNIGHT Candle — this candle is available for purchase in Novelly Yours’ shop. It smells FANTASTIC and is almost too gorgeous to burn! I am a huge fan of her products and cannot gush enough. Click me!

Okay! I think that’s it for now…I’m going to jump back into the writing cave, but I still have a few more surprises up my sleeve that will be revealed in the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned….

xoxo
