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.)
