Behind the scenes with CAPTURING THE DEVIL part 2: the importance of diversity

i’m so excited to share the second behind the scenes video of CAPTURING THE DEVIL that i shot with JIMMY Patterson Books and my editor, Jenny Bak! this one is dear to my heart because Audrey Rose isn’t able-bodied and it means the world to see a character like me on shelves.

part two: “the importance of diversity”

Capturing the Devil is out TODAY!!!!

good morning and welcome to the world, little book. the last five years of writing these stories and getting to know these characters have been the best, but now it’s time for me to say goodbye and send Thomas and Audrey Rose off.



i absolutely adore this conclusion–it ends where it all began for me. what you thought you knew about a killer in Stalking Jack the Ripper might just be another mystery waiting to be solved. i hope you’ve loved the hints i’ve dropped along the way…

Stalking Jack the Ripper intros the world and players.

Hunting Prince Dracula finds them in a castle much like Holmes’ Murder Hotel.

Escaping From Houdini was an emotional journey into Hell.

And now Audrey Rose and Thomas are finally Capturing the Devil they’ve been hunting. Or, at least they’re trying to.

as you join me in solving the final Stalking Jack the Ripper mystery, please remember one thing:

Beyond life, beyond death, my love for thee is eternal, dear reader.

thank you, thank you, thank you for going on another adventure with me.

how long do i have to pre-order/what is a pre-order?

***if I pre-order do I automatically get the alternate cover and art?

  •  the quick answer is no. you need to take a screenshot of your receipt and upload it to the pre-order prize claim site. (this is the number one question I keep getting, so please please please spread the word to anyone you know who’s already pre-ordered. I would HATE for them to miss out because they didn’t submit those forms!)

where do I pre-order from?

  • you can pre-order from anywhere. Indies, Amazon, B&N, iBooks, Kobo, etc.

what format counts?

  • it’s outlined on the prize submission page, but ebooks, hardcovers, and audiobooks.

do Beacon Book Boxes count?

  • unfortunately, no. book boxes don’t typically count towards pre-order prizes unless they opt to purchase them for their boxes. (I don’t know more details on why, i’m sorry!)

do Fae Crate boxes count?

  • if you ordered a “book-included” box from Fae Crate, they purchased and will include your alternate cover + the art print in the boxes.

i live outside the US, can i still get the prizes?

  • yes! Premier Collectables has signed books + the alternate dust jackets + the art prints available for purchase through their site. the offer lasts until September 9th! 

do i still get the regular cover if i submit for the alternate cover?

  •  YES! your book will come from wherever you purchased it with the original cover. the JIMMY books team ships out the pre-order prizes. details on when you can expect your prizes are on the website where you submit your forms.


  • US readers: Pre-order ANYWHERE by September 9th at midnight
  • ebooks, hardcovers, and audiobooks count
  • Submit your proof of purchase to the website HERE
  • INTL readers purchase through Premier Collectables HERE

that’s it! according to my publisher’s numbers, there are still LOTS of people who’ve pre-ordered but haven’t claimed their prizes! xoxoxo
