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.) 

Signed copies:

signed and personalized copies are available for preorder from each of my tour stops. please check in with each store for their policies. if you can’t make it out to an event, it’s the perfect way to still get a signed book!

Premier Collectables:

JIMMY books has arranged for Premier Collectables to once again offer signed copies along with the preorder prizes. they ship internationally, so readers who are interested outside of the US have the option to get the prizes too. Once the preorder prizes are announced, they’ll have it up on their website.

pre-order on Amazon, B&NiBooks and IndieBound.

i’ll be in NYC in June for both BEA (Book Expo America) and The BookCon! i am SO THRILLED to be attending and honestly cannot wait to see you there. if you’re going to be in town for the festivities here’s where you can snag a signed ARC of HUNTING PRINCE DRACULA:

BEA: Friday June 2nd I’ll be in the Hachette booth trying to play it cool around James Patterson while he does a “James Patterson Booth Takeover” at 10 am. From there I have a signing at table 11 from 2–2:30pm.

BookCon: Saturday June 3rd i’ll be doing an in-booth signing with author Lyndsay Ely from 10-11 am. (Hachette Booth 2502-2503) Followed by a Meet and Greet from 1-2pm in room 1E03.

The meet and greet is a ticketed event for the first 100 people who sign up. It’s a bit more casual than a regular signing and we’ll get to chat and take pictures and basically nerd out over books. You’ll have to check their website to see how to get a ticket for that event: thebookcon.com

i’ll be handing out some special swag at the meet and greet AND during my BEA signing. (The first 50 people in line at BEA will receive the swag.)

i think that’s it for now! cannot wait to be back home in New York and enjoying the city and loading up on ALL the books. ❤

HUNTING PRINCE DRACULA Updates

 

 

card1.2-Audrey Rose_smallI swear I have the very BEST readers and social media friends in the world. Before I jump into a few updates, I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your enthusiasm and love for my characters is truly incredible. Thank you for all of the laughs and excitement on twitter, IG, and facebook.

Now for the updates:

* A whooooole lot of people have asked if HUNTING PRINCE DRACULA is available for preorder (!!!!!)…the answer is YES! I’m working on some preorder campaigns now (international), so please take screenshots of your orders and keep them handy. I’ll be posting more news about what’s up for grabs a little bit later.

Here are a few links to where you can snag a copy:

Add HUNTING PRINCE DRACULA to your goodreads shelves here!

  • ARCs — (Advanced Reader Copies given to bloggers, reviewers, media, bookstagrammers, etc.) are being formatted and will soon be printed off. I’ll be sure to post another update of when (and how) to put your request in. (Last year ARCs were rolling out in mid-April to give you an idea of timing. It may be the same this year—we shall both see!)
  • Cover Reveal — last year SJTR’s cover was revealed in April, I should know more of when to expect the reveal in the next week or two, and will probably be shouting and squealing all over the interwebs to let you know a date.
  • Is this a series? — the answer is YES! So far there are three mysteries for Audrey Rose and her crew to solve. (SJTR, HPD, and a third coming out next year.) If you’re interested in more? Preordering is one of the best ways to show a publisher that you’re in need of more adventures. Tell all your friends and post about your favorite book/series online. People take note of it!
  • Character cards — I have received A LOT of inquiries about the character cards currently in my giveaway and how and where to order them. They’re available in Phantom Rin’s redbubble store and can be found by clicking through to the link in the next sentence. (The ones I order and giveaway are listed under ‘Greeting Cards’ and then toggle down to ‘Postcard.’) Link to character cards: Click me!
  • FOGGY KNIGHT Candle — this candle is available for purchase in Novelly Yours’ shop. It smells FANTASTIC and is almost too gorgeous to burn! I am a huge fan of her products and cannot gush enough. Click me!

Okay! I think that’s it for now…I’m going to jump back into the writing cave, but I still have a few more surprises up my sleeve that will be revealed in the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned….

xoxo

Cheers to 2017!

“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.” – Neil Gaiman 


Happy New Year’s Eve, friends! Thank you all so much for spending your time with me during this wild debut year. I can’t believe I get to go on another journey with you for book two. (Title reveal coming soon!) I’m grateful for everything, especially the friendships I’ve made with my fellow debut authors, seasoned vets, and each and every reader, librarian, bookstagrammer, and blogger. You have all been shining stars and I’m so humbled to have shared this adventure with you. 


2017 is a new chapter, a new opportunity to shine our lights. A way for us to rage against darkness by promoting goodness, light and love. Let’s all make some wonderful art next year. And the year after, and forever more. Stay tuned for some pretty fun announcements in the coming weeks and months!  #2016bestnine #stalkingjacktheripper

STALKING JACK THE RIPPER IS OUT!

It’s here! It’s FINALLY HERE!!! *tosses confetti* *passes around birthday cake* Happy happy birthday to my book baby!

img_0607

I am THRILLED to share this story and these characters with you. Thank you to everyone who’s been there from the very beginning, to those who’ve been hanging out with me on this blog and social media for the last seven years, and to all my new friends who’ve shared the excitement leading up to today.

STALKING JACK THE RIPPER, my gothic, feminist novel, now belongs to you, dear readers. I hope it transports you to gritty Victorian London. And I hope that it entertains you while taking you on an adventure that slowly unravels and twists and turns and keeps you unsure until the grand reveal.

Please tag me in any photos of SJTR in the wild! I am going to live vicariously through each of you today, and then I’ll be hitting the store and taking pics of my book baby in the real. Oh my gosh. That’s an actual thing I can do.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.
