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:

Interviewed by the fabulous A.G. Howard!

Today I’m hanging out over at my dear friend A.G. Howard‘s blog, A Still And Quiet Madness. The uber lovely Anita interviewed me and I’m dishing for the very first time publicly some information on what my book is about… I don’t even have the quick summary up on my blog, so be sure to click on the link below!

Anita’s debut (being published by Amulet)  SPLINTERED hits shelves everywhere in January, so wander around her beautiful blog while you’re there! She also said some blush-worthy things and you should totally give her a giant hug for me.

Shooting stars, romance & marijuana

“I heard what you said. I’m not the silly romantic you think. I don’t want the heavens or the shooting stars. I don’t want gemstones or gold. I have those things already. I want…a steady hand. A kind soul. I want to fall asleep, and wake, knowing my heart is safe. I want to love, and be loved.”

Wait… Have you been smoking the weed, err… the completely harmless, (just ask Miley) non-illegal (in California) wonder drug known as Salvia?
