Signed editions of ESCAPING FROM HOUDINI

we’re now at the less-than-one-month (by a day, but who’s counting?!) mark and i keep getting a TON of (amazing!) questions from readers on where they can get signed copies. i’m going to break it down below and include links to the stores for you.

SIGNED EDITIONS/PERSONALIZED EDITIONS

signed and personalized editions will be available at each bookstore i visit while on tour. BUT! you’ll want to make sure you pre-order as soon as you can. the stores will need to have your order in by the time i get there, or else i won’t be able to personalize your copy for you.

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. 

Link to signed copy + tarot cards.

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!!!

INTERNATIONAL PREORDER PRIZES FOR ESCAPING FROM HOUDINI ARE HERE!

INTERNATIONAL PREORDER PRIZES FOR ESCAPING FROM HOUDINI ARE HERE!

DjhwIjWXoAAyWTc

i am so, so, so ecstatic to share this news with you! i know international readers were excited when the custom character cards were unveiled (and then disappointed it was US only), but now you’ll be able to snag the very same cards AND get a signed copy!

details:

  • international readers who pre-order through Premier Collectables will receive a signed hardcover copy of ESCAPING FROM HOUDINI along with the 8 custom tarot cards illustrated by Phantom Rin.
  • no preorder receipts need to be submitted since the preorder is going directly through Premier Collectables, and they’ll be shipping both the signed book and tarot cards out together.
  • the international offer ends on 9/17/18, the same date as the US preorder offer, so please don’t wait too long. once publication day hits, the tarot cards disappear forever! 
  • Order your signed hardcover and receive the cards by clicking HERE.
  • Standard international shipping costs will be applied at checkout. For any more questions, please check the listing on their site. 
  • I’ll be signing the copies in person and can’t wait to scribble in your books!

i want to say a HUGE thank you to Sabrina at JIMMY Books for going above and beyond to make this a possibility for international readers! this is such an awesome (and rare!) thing for a US publisher to do, and i couldn’t be more grateful to have such a dedicated and hard working team.

US Signed editions:

I will also be signing (and personalizing) editions that will be available for preorder through each bookstore i visit during my tour. those stops will be announced very, very shortly, so if you’re a US reader who’s been patiently waiting to preorder a signed copy, the wait is almost over!

the signed editions with the decorative borders will also be announced in the VERY near future. (my crystal ball tells me in the next day or two…along with the ESCAPING FROM HOUDINI tour announcement!) 

thank you all so very much for all of the love for this book. it truly means the world to me.
