Last call for custom tarot cards + B&N Exclusive edition!

A quick ESCAPING FROM HOUDINI update:

B&N Edition: i just got word that the B&N Exclusive edition of ESCAPING FROM HOUDINI (that features an entire bonus chapter) is a limited edition!!! supplies are running out quickly (LIKE WHAT?!?!?) so please grab a copy while you can. once they’re gone, they’re (unfortunately) not printing more.

PRE-ORDER PRIZES: the custom tarot cards are also almost gone!! (SERIOUSLY, YOU GUYS ARE INCREDIBLE!!) i’ve heard there are only 100 or so left. i cannot wait for you to have these cards…they’re so detailed and so gorgeous in person!

LAST CALL for Premier Collectables: premier collectables has signed copies that include ALL eight tarot cards, but that offer is only good through the 17th. (TWO DAYS!!) They ship internationally, so anyone who lives outside of the US who wants the custom artwork has an opportunity to get them PLUS a signed book.

Signed/Personalized editions: if you’d like a signed or personalized book from any of the stores on my tour, please don’t forget to pre-order them ASAP. the bookstores will need your orders in before i arrive. (the first tour date is on MONDAY! OMG!)

THREE MORE DAYS UNTIL PUBLICATION! TWO MORE UNTIL BOOKS OF WONDER! AHHHHHH!

ESCAPING FROM HOUDINI pre-publication note to readers

CAN YOU BELIEVE PUB DAY IS ALMOST HERE?!?!?! ONE MORE WEEK! holy heck…i seriously cannot believe the THIRD book is about to hit shelves. to hold you over until release day, i’m revealing the Moonlight Carnival characters along with some facts about them on my social media. (the fist two have already been unveiled, so check out my facebook, instagram, or twitter this week for details!)

here’s a little bit of what you can expect from this next mysterious adventure. 

Escaping from Houdini is a dark Victorian story filled with illusions. it explores the line between fantasy and reality, and how that sometimes blurs. everyone aboard this ship is a performer in their own way, each playing a role. danger lurks when you play pretend, though, and complications often arise.

EFH reveals a different layer of feminism—one where the choice of who you share your heart with is just as empowering as your choice in career. it boldly states that young women should make choices based on their own needs instead of fear.

this particular journey is not only a literal journey across the sea, but an emotional one, too. while traveling across the ocean, a ship often encounters turbulent waters, and this story is filled with ups and downs, both small and grand in nature. i hope your stomach aches with unexpected laughter and your heart pounds as well as flutters. i hope this journey gives you a tremendous emotional experience—one that is brimming with love and heart break, indecision and ultimately redemption. life often gives us storms, but it’s how we weather them that shows our true character.

above everything else, i hope for a few hours you’ll fall under the spell of the Moonlight Carnival. that perhaps you, too, might start to question the motives of your favorite characters. maybe you’ll discover sleight of word is just as clever of a trick as sleight of hand. who knows? you may end up questioning everything, even your own heart. 

one more word of warning before you set sail: be careful of getting in too deep. you just might lose your heart and your head to this magical traveling show.

welcome aboard the RMS Etruria where magic, mischief, and mayhem await your arrival under star-speckled skies.

xoxo
