KINGDOM OF THE WICKED playlist

the countdown to the cover reveal is on (just five days left!!!), so i thought it would be fun share something KINGDOM related to hold you over. before i started writing novels, i wrote music reviews online. singer-songwriters, blues, live bands, big bands, oldies, punk; i adore it all. which means i am SO excited to share the playlist for KINGDOM OF THE WICKED with you today!

i don’t typically have music on while i write, but i do listen on my breaks or when i’m trying to set the mood or tone of a scene. i love anything that captures the atmosphere or feeling i’m going for. here’s what i listened to the most while drafting this series opener:

SURPRISE! KINGDOM OF THE WICKED release date + more!

i LOVE a good surprise and hope you do too because…..SURPRISE!!!!

The #1 New York Times bestselling author Kerri Maniscalco introduces her next blockbuster series, in which a beautiful young witch, a troubled demon, and a lush 19th century Italian setting come together to create a dark, intoxicating romance for the ages.

Emilia and her twin sister Victoria are strega – witches who live secretly among humans, avoiding notice and persecution. One night, Victoria never shows up for dinner service at the family’s renowned Sicilian restaurant. Emilia soon finds the body of her beloved twin…desecrated beyond belief. Devastated, Emilia sets out to discover who did this, and to punish them.

Wrath was the outlier among the seven demon brethren, always choosing duty over pleasure. So when ordered to find out who was killing off the young women who were to be his master’s bride, he didn’t hesitate. But upon meeting the fierce, desperate Emilia, it was clear this disturbing mystery would take a bewitching turn…

STALKING JACK THE RIPPER boxed sets are hitting shelves in one week! preview bonus material here + FAQ

one week from today the STALKING JACK THE RIPPER series hardcover boxed sets hit shelves! i’ve gotten a bunch of questions about them and decided to answer them here for you.

ALL boxed sets, regardless of where you buy them, come with a signed double-sided poster that was designed exclusively for the boxed sets. (sneak preview here!)

Limited edition B&N boxed sets feature signed books PLUS the signed poster. this set is exclusive to B&N only, which means if you want the signed series + the signed poster, this is the only retailer that’s offering that option and only while supplies last.

the books are hardcover, i’m not sure about a paperback boxed set yet, but if that does happen, then i believe they would contain all of the bonus content that’s featured in the paperbacks. if you’d like a bind up of bonus materials–including digital-only releases like BECOMING THE DARK PRINCE–, definitely ask my publisher! you never know what might happen if enough people request it.

i spent the summer signing and signing and signing and signing and had so much fun. i am SO thrilled it’s hitting shelves so close to Halloween, and i think Thomas and Audrey Rose’s gothic hearts would be equally excited!
