The YA saga marks the bestselling author’s first foray into the fantasy genre, as she’s known for her historical Stalking Jack the Ripper series. But Maniscalco’s talent for weaving haunting mysteries and smoldering romances into her writing carries across genres, and Kingdom of the Wicked is proof.”

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:
