As for the decision to continue? It was the most natural progression of the storyline, and I’m thrilled JIMMY Patterson books was as eager as I am to tell this story right. Plus, I think there might have been an uproar if I didn’t complete the story arc after the events of book three… 😆

Thank YOU, dear readers. Your enthusiasm and support of this series is phenomenal and I’m so lucky to have you on #Cressworth’s side. ❤️

Book three’s title will be announced here BEFORE the end of the year, so stay tuned!

ONE MORE BIT OF GOOD NEWS! Amazon currently has STALKING JACK THE RIPPER on sale for $3! That’s right, for THREE dollars you can have a HARDCOVER! THIS IS THE BEST DAY EVERRRRR!
