Hocus Pocus and Practical Magic meets the Salem Witch trials in this haunting story about three sisters on a quest for revenge—and how love may be the only thing powerful enough to stop them.
Welcome to the cursed town of Sparrow…
Where, two centuries ago, three sisters were sentenced to death for witchery. Stones were tied to their ankles and they were drowned in the deep waters surrounding the town.
Now, for a brief time each summer, the sisters return, stealing the bodies of three weak-hearted girls so that they may seek their revenge, luring boys into the harbor and pulling them under.
Like many locals, seventeen-year-old Penny Talbot has accepted the fate of the town. But this year, on the eve of the sisters’ return, a boy named Bo Carter arrives; unaware of the danger he has just stumbled into.
Mistrust and lies spread quickly through the salty, rain-soaked streets. The townspeople turn against one another. Penny and Bo suspect each other of hiding secrets. And death comes swiftly to those who cannot resist the call of the sisters.
But only Penny sees what others cannot. And she will be forced to choose: save Bo, or save herself.
The Wicked Deep Aesthetics
I have always been very visual when it comes to writing. I like having images and color tones around me that set the mood for the book I’m working on. Long before Pinterest existed, I would cut out magazine clippings of images and photos that inspired me, and tack them above my desk. But it always felt very limited.
Now, Pinterest is often the first place I start when drafting a new idea.
With THE WICKED DEEP, I began by pinning whimsical and enchanting images that set the tone for the story, then I dug deeper into the characters and smaller details. While I write, I reference my Pinterest boards often, especially when I’m feeling stuck or uninspired. It has saved me many times!
Below are a few key images that kept the words flowing while writing THE WICKED DEEP!
