Earlier this summer, I published a short ebook, People with Fishtails. It was so short, I got to thinking, what would happen if I published this as part of a compilation with other short stories? I’d already been working on a mermaid story from the age of colonization and pirates, and I soon wrote a contemporary one. Along with the futuristic People with Fishtails, these stories make up Three Mermaid Tales. The book is free on Smashwords and coming soon to Barnes and Noble for free. It may take a while to become free on Amazon.
I am so fortunate to have so many supportive family members and friends who helped me through every stage of the writing and publishing process!
In case you’re curious, here’s the ebook synopsis:
In “The Red Siren,” travel back in time to the island of Mystycetii in the days when mermaids ate oysters and were ruled by a mer-king. Follow the journey of the naturalist Dove as he attempts to fall in love with his betrothed, Rowynne, and comes crashing down hard for a local mermaid. Then, fast-forward to the present for “Ocean Girl,” the story of a mermaid named Luna who wants toWIN a human dance contest – will she get up after her fall from the spotlight? Finally, jump into the near future with “People with Fishtails,” the tale of two landlubbers who find themselves on an environmental pirate ship. Gayle is searching for her mother, whom she believes to be a mermaid ,while Sander is on the lookout for unusual marine specimens. Neither of the two knows they’re also looking for love…
Enjoy a journey through the ages with these three tales of mermaids!
