The secret is out! KINGDOM OF THE WICKED, the first book in my new series, is hitting shelves next fall!

27F2C00D-4F27-42E6-B637-DAA36A942DAE

I’ve been keeping this secret all year, and now that the publisher’s marketplace announcement has finally arrived, I’m SO NERVOUS. But also (almost) beyond comprehension-level excited and hope you are, too!

KINGDOM OF THE WICKED, the first book in my new series, is a YA historical fantasy  that’s really a murder mystery at heart.

I can’t say much more for now, but it features some of my very favorite things as a reader; enemies to lovers, antiheroes, mystery, dark magic, and murder. I’m especially excited about the setting—19thcentury Sicily—which is enchanting even without casting any spells! (My family is Sicilian, so it’s extra special and personal.)

I honestly can’t wait for you to meet Emilia and Wrath next fall!

H U G E thank you to my agent Barbara Poelle, my editor Jenny Bak, James Patterson, and the whole team at JIMMY Patterson books. I’ve dreamed of writing this story for so many years and am grateful I get to share it with you.

More details will be coming in the following months, but that’s all I can share now. I hope, hope, hope you’re as excited as I am!

Scroll down for a sneak preview of my secret Pinterest board! It’s up on GoodReads, so please add it to your lists if you’d like! (I’d definitely appreciate it!)

CAPTURING THE DEVIL preorder prizes are here!!! (plus FAQ about them!)

it’s been SO hard keeping both of these prizes a secret for so long, and i am so happy the wait is finally over!!! please read through this post carefully for answers to ALL of your burning preorder questions! xoxo

SocialMediaImage_CTD

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.
