5 Reasons to Read Wildings
- Caleb Levi: Did you like Marah’s younger brother in Sparkers? If so, you’re in luck because he’s back in a much more prominent role!

- Musical magic: Yes, there is spell casting with instruments and singing.
- Poking around in dusty archives: You know, if you enjoy that sort of thing. I may have been inspired by the Central Registry in José Saramago’s All the Names…
If you’re in the Twin Cities or the Los Angeles area, I’d love to see you at one of my release parties for Wildings!
