FAQ: Special editions, bonus content, and signed copies, oh my!

Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 2.47.09 PMi’ve gotten a lot of wonderful questions about the different editions of ESCAPING FROM HOUDINI and where readers can snag signed copies, bonus content, and how international readers can also get the custom tarot cards, so this post is dedicated to all of those (INCREDIBLE!) questions! 

B&N exclusive edition:

as a reader, i absolutely ADORE bonus content, so when Barnes and Noble asked if i’d create an exclusive, bonus chapter for them, of course i jumped around the house, freaked out my cats, and said YES!! 

included in the B&N edition, there’s a pretty swoony chapter that won’t be released anywhere else. i put Audrey Rose and Thomas through the ringer in this book and felt they deserved a little extra time together. 

Link to the B&N exclusive edition

the B&N edition *does* ship to some international countries, so please do check their site. i’m not sure if they’ll be in store or just online exclusives while supplies last, so if you do want a copy checking in with them is the best thing.

another important note: B&N has TWO hardcovers available. One is the hardcover without bonus content, and one has the sticker and description of the bonus material on it. be sure you’re selecting the version you want.

EFH signed tip inINDIES: signed edition with decorative border:

if signed editions are your thing, then you are (hopefully) going to be as excited as i am that you can grab them at independent bookstores around the country on publication day! these editions are limited and come with those gorgeous decorative boarders around the signatures.  

i have always adored independent bookstores, so this makes my heart burst with happiness. please do stop by your local store on September 18th and breathe in that special bookstore smell.

Links and store locations will be included below!

Premier Collectables. signed edition + tarot cards + certificate of authenticity for international readers:

Premier Collectables has a preorder promotion happening on their site and it’s open to readers everywhere! this is an opportunity we searched high and low for for international readers so they can get the tarot cards too. just like the US preorder prizes, this ends on 9/17 at 11:59 pm EST.

EFH Pre-Order Graphic for Social MediaUS Pre-order prizes and how to claim them:

if you’ve already purchased your copy of EFH and want to submit a screenshot of your receipt, please do so on the website JIMMY Patterson Books has set up for it. 

i’ve gotten A LOT of questions about readers who live outside the US but who have friends within the country and want to know if they can use their address. that’s actually something i don’t know, but JIMMY books has provided contact information on the pre-order page for any questions. (questions about uploading a wrong screenshot and how to resubmit without trouble can also be asked there.)

you can pre-order ESCAPING FROM HOUDINI from any store (online or in person) and send your receipt in.

if you’re planning on attending one of the tour stops, first of all YAY! can’t wait to see you! please do check in with the stores to see what their individual policies are. i will sign all of your books, but they may have rules regarding the event itself (and how to participate in the signing).

Link to the US pre-order submission site is here.

more bonus material:

9780316551670_p0_v5_s600x595paperback’s of HUNTING PRINCE DRACULA will be hitting shelves on September 4, and i’ve put together some fun bonus material in the back. i’ve gotten a TON of requests for more content from Thomas’s POV, and had a blast stepping back into his mind. the bonus content chronicles Thomas’s relationship with Audrey Rose from the very beginning in a series of letters written between him and his sister Daciana. 

these copies will be available EVERYWHERE! yay!!!

i cannot wait to see you guys on the road in a few short weeks!!!

the US ESCAPING FROM HOUDINI preorder prize is finally here!

EFH - Slider for Pre-Order Promotion

i’m so excited i’m just going to jump to the news! if you preorder a copy of ESCAPING FROM HOUDINI, my awesome US publisher, JIMMY Books, will send you a set of exclusive character cards, designed by phantom rin! *dances*

there will be a total of EIGHT custom cards given to each person who submits their receipt. the cards play a large role in the novel, which makes them even more special!

it’s no secret that i adore phantom rin’s artwork and have swooned pretty hard over all of her Cressworth illustrations from the very beginning of this journey. i am beyond excited that i got to work with her on this, and hope you love them as much as i do.

please note: once the preorder campaign is over, they’ll disappear for good, so please turn your screenshots of your receipts in as soon as you can.

for more information on eligible entries, please check out the JIMMY books preorder website by clicking HERE

STALKING JACK THE RIPPER mass market paperback edition + Thomas Cresswell novella

51lhZH3xyHL._SX307_BO1,204,203,200_STALKING JACK THE RIPPER is going to be available in mass market paperback editions! AND THEY’VE GOT FUN COVERS FOR THEM!  i’m so thrilled to share this story with the adult market and a whole new set of readers.

now, no matter what your reading preference is, there’ll be a version for you. SJTR is available in Hardcover, trade paperbacks, ebooks, audio cds, iBooks, audible, and mass market paperbacks (as of April). pinch me, please.

so…what does this have to do with the MEETING THOMAS CRESSWELL novella? Thomas’s story will be included as bonus content!

i’ve had daily messages and emails from people who’ve either read it and wanted to own it in print form, or readers who missed out on the HUNTING PRINCE DRACULA preorder giveaway altogether, and i’ve been eager to find some way to make those requests happen.

including it in SJTR was the best solution since it’s a prequel to the opening of that story. it details what Thomas was doing the night he met Audrey Rose, and proceeds to tell the story through his deductive lens for the first few chapters. i had such a blast writing from his POV and hope that you enjoy reading it as much!

mass market versions aren’t very common for YA books, and i’m infinitely grateful for all of the love and support this series has gotten from both readers and my publisher. thank you a thousand, million times.

edited to add:

**the novella is included in the mass market paperback ONLY, and will not be available anywhere else. (please make sure you preorder the correct paperback if you want the novella.)

**mass market paperbacks are the smaller paperbacks that are usually printed for adult mystery and thriller series. (think beach reads and books found in airports and grocery/drug stores, etc.)

**the trade paperback of STALKING JACK THE RIPPER does not include the novella, but it does have the same cover as the original hardcover version. (and it’s already out, whereas the mass market paperback will hit shelves on April 24th.)

xoxo
