CAPTURING THE DEVIL preorder prizes are here!!! (plus FAQ about them!)

it’s been SO hard keeping both of these prizes a secret for so long, and i am so happy the wait is finally over!!! please read through this post carefully for answers to ALL of your burning preorder questions! xoxo

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.

BOOK BOXES

Unfortunately, book boxes don’t count as preorder receipts….BUT…

Fae Crate purchased both the alternative covers/dust jackets AND the artwork by Gabi and are adding them to each of their “book-included” boxes!! if you are a US or INTERNATIONAL reader who ordered a book + box from them, you’ll have your prizes in your boxes!

They just posted another TINY restock of book + box options for their recovery kits, so if you’d like to snag one, please check out their site for details.
