Without further ado, here’s the current jacket copy:

In the shocking finale to the bestselling series that began with Stalking Jack the Ripper, Audrey Rose and Thomas are on the hunt for the depraved, elusive killer known as the White City Devil. A deadly game of cat-and-mouse has them fighting to stay one step ahead of the brilliant serial killer—or see their fateful romance cut short by unspeakable tragedy.

Audrey Rose Wadsworth and Thomas Cresswell have landed in America, a bold, brash land unlike the genteel streets of London they knew. But like London, the city of Chicago hides its dark secrets well. When the two attend the spectacular World’s Fair, they find the once-in-a-lifetime event tainted with reports of missing people and unsolved murders.

Determined to help, Audrey Rose and Thomas begin their investigations, only to find themselves facing a serial killer unlike any they’ve heard of before. Identifying him is one thing, but capturing him—and getting dangerously lost in the infamous Murder Hotel he constructed as a terrifying torture device—is another.

Will Audrey Rose and Thomas see their last mystery to the end—together and in love—or will their fortunes finally run out when their most depraved adversary makes one final, devastating kill?

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.

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!!)

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

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.
