SocialMediaImage_CTD

the US preorder prizes are:

  1. An alternate cover/dust jacket for CAPTURING THE DEVIL. this cover features a black background and glittering gold/champagne foiled dress. It matches the other books in the series with the dark background and I absolutely LOVE how shimmery Audrey Rose’s dress is in real life!
  2. A 6” x 9” double-sided postcard featuring original color artwork of a wedding scene with Audrey Rose Wadsworth and Thomas Cresswell by Gabriella Bujdosó! i loved working with Gabi on this and couldn’t be happier with how she NAILED the dress, the details in Thomas’s suit, and entire scene. one side features Cressworth in their wedding best, and the other features Thomas’s tattoo.

i hope you’re as excited as i am, i’ve been dreaming of alternate covers and more tie-in artwork for SO long and am so blissfully happy with the final prizes for this series!

INTERNATIONAL Readers

While it’s not legal for my US publisher to ship out preorder prizes outside of the US, Premier Collectables is offering a LIMITED AMOUNT of signed books + both the alternate cover and artwork by Gabi.

This is only open while supplies last, so please tell anyone you know who lives outside the US and really wants the prizes.

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.)

BECOMING THE DARK PRINCE (the Thomas Cresswell novella) synopsis reveal plus preorder links!

Screen Shot 2019-06-18 at 11.41.53 AM

BECOMING THE DARK PRINCE is up for pre-order on Amazon and B&N AND the synopsis has been revealed! it will be available on July 15th. 

read on below for the synopsis and FAQ.

Enigmatic, brooding, and darkly handsome, Thomas Cresswell has always been the one mystery Audrey Rose has never been able to fully solve. As brilliant partners in crime investigation, they understand each other perfectly…but as young lovers, their passionate natures have led to both euphoria and heartbreak throughout the Stalking Jack the Ripper series.

This novella features a collection of scenes that takes place during and after the pair’s horrifying Atlantic voyage in Escaping From Houdini. Experience new and familiar scenes from Thomas’s unique point of view, including an intensely personal look into his plea for Audrey Rose’s hand in marriage.

With a romance for the ages, Audrey Rose and Thomas reach the conclusion to their epic, irresistible partnership in their final adventure, Capturing the Devil.

FAQ:

BECOMING THE DARK PRINCE will be available as an ebook *only.* I’m not sure if my publisher will combine all of the bonus content/novellas at some point into a physical copy, as of right now, I don’t think there are any plans to do so. If you’d like to see that one day, definitely tell them on social media! Reader interest has a way of making magical things happen!

So far it’s up on Amazon, B&N, and Apple iBooks. (click for links)

If you preorder a copy, it gets emailed to you the day of its release (July 15th!)

This is the *second* Thomas novella. The first is called MEETING THOMAS CRESSWELL and is *only* available in mass market paperback editions of STALKING JACK THE RIPPER. 

Thank you for making it a B&N bestseller within the first few hours!!!

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.
