“Didn’t your family warn you against sneaking around at night alone?” Thomas asked. “Dangerous things linger in the dark.”

Without hesitation, I dragged the scalpel from one shoulder to the sternum, taking pains to push as deeply as I could. My brows raised a fraction before I schooled my face into an unreadable mask. Human flesh flayed much easier than I’d anticipated. It wasn’t much different from cutting into a pork loin prior to its roasting, a thought that should have been more disturbing than it was.

Bonus SJTR Character Sketches

I have been dancing around the interwebs all week with each new character sketch that the endlessly talented Phantom Rin unveiled in the STALKING JACK THE RIPPER universe, and wanted to do a round-up for anyone who may have missed out on the fun.

Rin just shared some new illustrations with me, so keep an eye out on Facebook, twitter, tumblr, and instagram if you’d like to see them the day they’re posted. I’ll also post and share them on my accounts as well. Gah! I’m so in awe of the way she captured the essence of each character. I’ll try and emerge from the writing cave to do another round-up post next week.

Here’s exclusive quotes from Stalking Jack the Ripper to go along with the badass illustrations. Enjoy! xoxo

Liza, Audrey’s cousin and best friend:

“Wield your assets like a blade, Cousin. No man has invented a corset for our brains. Let them think they rule the world. It’s a queen who sits on that throne. Never forget that. There’s no reason you can’t wear a frock to work, and don the finest gown and dance the night away. But only if it pleases you.” – Liza, STALKING JACK THE RIPPER.

Superintendent William Blackburn, lead investigator:

Superintendent Blackburn shook his head, his fair hair catching the light of the sun. “I’d inquire about the weather, but I’m sure you’d like to speak of other things, Miss Wadsworth.” He squinted toward the body, shielding his eyes with his hand. “Seems our boy gave us two more victims.” – Blackburn, STALKING JACK THE RIPPER

Nathaniel Wadsworth, Audrey’s brother:

“Are we terrified to let the girl out of the protective bubble again? Heaven forbid she catch pox and perish. Oh, wait,” Nathaniel cocked his head. “That’s happened before, hasn’t it?” He dramatically grabbed my wrist, checking for a pulse, then staggered back. “By God, Father. She’s quite alive!” – Nathaniel Wadsworth, STALKING JACK THE RIPPER

Stalking Jack the Ripper Character Sketches

I’m deep into my book two deadline and haven’t had as much time to post as I’d like. BUT I have to say one thing…Oh. My. Gosh. I am blown away by ALL. THE. SUPPORT. You are making this debut experience bigger and more amazing than I’d ever dreamed it could be.

Thank you. Thank you for all the tweets and retweets and posts and bookstagrams and friendship across all of my social media platforms. Your reviews and word of mouth recommendations are so very humbling and help more than you know. ❤

Fun things are coming up soon, and I wanted to share a little sneak preview with you today. I’m absolutely in love with PhantomRin’s art–I mean, have you seen her original works??? So much talent. When she agreed to collaborate with some STALKING JACK THE RIPPER designs I nearly fainted. Please check out her tumblr and instagram and twitter and everywhere you can.

Without further adieu…here is one of her sketches of my main characters, Audrey Rose Wadsworth and Thomas Cresswell. Can you believe September is less than two months away?!?!?!
