the US preorder prizes are:

  1. An alternate cover/dust jacket for CAPTURING THE DEVIL. this cover features a black background and glittering gold/champagne foiled dress. It matches the other books in the series with the dark background and I absolutely LOVE how shimmery Audrey Rose’s dress is in real life!
  2. A 6” x 9” double-sided postcard featuring original color artwork of a wedding scene with Audrey Rose Wadsworth and Thomas Cresswell by Gabriella Bujdosó! i loved working with Gabi on this and couldn’t be happier with how she NAILED the dress, the details in Thomas’s suit, and entire scene. one side features Cressworth in their wedding best, and the other features Thomas’s tattoo.

i hope you’re as excited as i am, i’ve been dreaming of alternate covers and more tie-in artwork for SO long and am so blissfully happy with the final prizes for this series!

INTERNATIONAL Readers

While it’s not legal for my US publisher to ship out preorder prizes outside of the US, Premier Collectables is offering a LIMITED AMOUNT of signed books + both the alternate cover and artwork by Gabi.

This is only open while supplies last, so please tell anyone you know who lives outside the US and really wants the prizes.

BOOK BOXES

Unfortunately, book boxes don’t count as preorder receipts….BUT…

Fae Crate purchased both the alternative covers/dust jackets AND the artwork by Gabi and are adding them to each of their “book-included” boxes!! if you are a US or INTERNATIONAL reader who ordered a book + box from them, you’ll have your prizes in your boxes!

They just posted another TINY restock of book + box options for their recovery kits, so if you’d like to snag one, please check out their site for details.

FAQ about signed copies, pre-order prizes, secret exclusive playing cards given out on tour, and more!

hi friends! with just TEN DAYS LEFT (OMGGGGgGGGGgGG) i wanted to answer a few frequently asked questions about signed copies of ESCAPING FROM HOUDINI. here are the top questions and hopefully some good answers!

Q: i’m also ordering signed copies as gifts for friends/loved ones, can i submit extra receipts to get tarot cards for each order?

A: unfortunately, on the JIMMY books pre-order site, it limits the prizes to one set per household. BUT! you can order signed copies through Premier Collectables and they come with the full set of tarot cards. you’ll just need to place your order by the 17th. (the cards won’t be available after that.) also?? you are AWESOME.

Q: i can’t make it to an event. can i still get a signed or personalized book???

A: definitely YES! if you pre-order through any of the bookstores i’m visiting on tour, then i can sign and personalize your copy for you. the bookstore will have either a section on their site, or you may need to reach out to them to make sure they know you want it personalized too. (i.e. on the Books of Wonder order form they ask if you want it personalized before you add it to your cart.)

Q: will there be goodies at the tour stops?

A: yes! i’m bringing tarot cards to slip into books, and a TOP SECRET character playing card designed by Phantom Rin. 

Q: wait!!!! how can i get one of those playing cards???

A: i’m sneaking them into books that are pre-ordered through the stores i’m visiting on tour. if you can’t make it out to an event, that’s the only other way to snag these exclusive playing cards. 

Q: can i bring other books with me to an event?

A: definitely check with the bookstore about their personal policies. most ask that you either pre-order a copy through them as a “ticket” to the event, or purchase one the day of the event. i will definitely sign ALL your books, though. 

Q: do i need to buy a ticket to your event?

A: no tickets are necessary, but bookstores typically ask that you purchase a book through them as your “ticket” to the signing. definitely check with them for any other individual store rules.

Q: what if i want a signed copy of STALKING JACK THE RIPPER or HUNTING PRINCE DRACULA? Will there be books available at the stores?

A: yes! there should be stock for each book in the series. definitely shoot the individual bookstores a message if you’re looking for it in a particular format, though. (i.e. they may have it in hardcover or trade paperback or mass market paperback, or only one of those formats.) 

Q: what if i’m an international reader and want the exclusive/secret playing card???

A: some of the bookstores i’m visiting on tour also ship internationally, so if you order a signed or personalized copy through them, i can slip a secret playing card into your book! 

Q: i submitted a pre-order form without including a receipt on the JIMMY site, did it go through?

A: unfortunately, probably not. definitely follow ALL the instructions on the pre-order prize page–you want to make sure you have a qualified entry. there’s an email address listed at the bottom of the pre-order prize site if you’ve got any questions or need to upload your receipt.

FAQ:

It says “US/CA only” and I live outside the US…

Since it’s an ebook it’s open internationally, so please upload your receipts!

I don’t see the submit button. Help!

If you’re using a mobile device sometimes they’ve been giving people trouble. Use a laptop or computer and that always works, promise.

When should I receive my novella?

The team at JIMMY books has been working hard to sort through all of the receipts and send out the novellas ASAP. Please allow up to two business days for it to arrive in your inbox. if it’s been two business days, please contact my publicist. (her info is under the contact page on my site.)

Do I have to preorder from a specific place?

Nope! You can preorder from any store or online retailer and upload the picture of your receipt to enter.

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.
