Me, My Shelf and I Blog Tour, Tens List, & Giveaway: The Blue Woods (Nicole Maggi)

Twin Willow Trilogy #3
Author: Nicole Maggi
Release Date: January 2016
Publisher: Medallion Media Group

The Night Battles ascend in THE BLUE WOODS, the exhilarating conclusion to the Twin Willows Trilogy
Sixteen-year-old Alessia Jacobs wants to go to college someday like her friends. She wishes for a chance at a normal relationship with Jonah. But normal is never an option for a Benandante like Alessia, who has sworn to protect the magic in the world from the Malandanti . . . especially when Jonah is on the opposite side of the deadly struggle. When the war comes to a head, lives will be lost, love will be gained, and Alessia will risk everything to save the people she loves and destroy the Malandanti once and for all.


Nicole was born in the suburbs of upstate New York, and began writing poems about unicorns and rainbows at a very early age. She detoured into acting, earned a BFA from Emerson College, and moved to NYC where she performed in lots of off-off-off-Broadway Shakespeare. After a decade of schlepping groceries on the subway, she and her husband hightailed it to sunny Los Angeles, where they now reside, surrounded by fruit trees, with their young daughter and two oddball cats. She is also the author of THE TWIN WILLOWS TRILOGY, published by Medallion Press. The first book, WINTER FALLS, is available now.

Ten Songs that belong on a Twin Willows Soundtrack

I make a playlist for every book I write. I need music when I write; it really helps me sink into the world of the book and into the character’s mind. This is just a small selection of songs that are on my Twin Willows playlist. Most of the songs remind me of Alessia, or of Jonah and Alessia’s relationship, but I’ve noted a couple that are inspired by the other characters.


Florence & The Machine


First Aid Kit

“She Lit A Fire”

Lord Huron

Note: This is Heath’s torch song about Nerina. 

“This Tornado Loves You”

Neko Case

“Soaring High, Soaring Low”

Dian Booth

This song is about the Waterfall. There’s rushing water sounds in it so I would often listen to this when I wrote scenes set at the Waterfall.

“Cosmic Love”

Florence & The Machine


Birds of Tokyo

“Elastic Heart”


Note: This song is Bree’s anthem. There is a scene of hers in THE BLUE WOODS that was so emotional for me to write that I played this song on repeat while I wrote it.


Neon Trees

“Hunting My Dress”

Jesca Hoop
