I am thrilled to be hosting a spot on the blog tour for STALKING JACK THE RIPPER by Kerri Maniscalco! I freaking adored this book! I have an interview with Kerri to share with you today! And make sure to enter the awesome giveaway for a finished copy of the book!!
Haven't heard of STALKING JACK THE RIPPER ? Check it out!
Seventeen-year-old Audrey Rose Wadsworth was born a lord's daughter, with a life of wealth and privilege stretched out before her. But between the social teas and silk dress fittings, she leads a forbidden secret life.
Against her stern father's wishes and society's expectations, Audrey often slips away to her uncle's laboratory to study the gruesome practice of forensic medicine. When her work on a string of savagely killed corpses drags Audrey into the investigation of a serial murderer, her search for answers brings her close to her own sheltered world.
Now on to the interview! It's a short one just some lightning round questions.
Lightning Round Questions
What are you reading right now? Or what do you have on your TBR that you’re dying to read?
I am dying to read A TORCH AGAINST THE NIGHT and will be treating myself after the tour and when I turn in book two. I’m going to take one glorious day off and just read and drink tea.
What Hogwarts House would the Sorting Hat place you in?
Gryffindor all the way! (The online quiz confirms this :)
Twitter or Facebook?
Twitter. But I love Instagram the best :D
Wonder woman or catwoman.
Favorite TV show?
I don’t watch very much tv, so maybe Game of Thrones or anything about cooking or forensics. Or the Bachelor…I *do* have an embarrassing obsession with that show that recently started. Sometimes it’s nice to just veg out on something silly.
Sweet or Salty?
Salty. I love steamed/salted edamame and potato chips once in a while.
I am afraid of heights during certain times. Looking down from an escalator? Terrifying. Hiking up a mountain? I’m totally fine.
Song you can’t get enough of right now?
‘Feels like we only go backwards’ by Tame Impala.
Spring Movie you’re most looking forward to?
Beauty and the Beast! The atmosphere reminds me a bit of book two, and I cannot wait to see what they’ve done to this classic tale.
Kerri Maniscalco grew up in a semi-haunted house outside NYC where her fascination with gothic settings began. In her spare time she reads everything she can get her hands on, cooks all kinds of food with her family and friends, and drinks entirely too much tea while discussing life’s finer points with her cats.
STALKING JACK THE RIPPER is her debut novel. It incorporates her love of forensic science and unsolved history.
It will be available in stores and online September 20, 2016.
Favorite non-writing things:
I believe curry, avocados, vinyl records, handwritten letters, and my 1950s Smith-Corona typewriter are the best things on the planet. EVER. (Aside from my food blog, www.sndwchsetc.com, that is.) My favorite quote of all time is: “You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club” by Jack London.
