YA Scavenger Hunt–ARE YOU READY???

In June, the Alliance of Young Adult Authors is sponsoring a massive young adult scavenger hunt. This is a chance to meet some new authors, grab a bunch of free books, and sign up to win a whole bunch of epic prizes!

RULES

Each author will be given a special keyword, which will be bolded and all caps like this: BUTTERFLIES.

All you have to do is visit all the author’s sites in this order, write down the special keywords to discover the short story, then enter the giveaway with the completed secret legend HERE.

There will be one main giveaway for the main prize, but most of the participating authors will also have smaller giveaways for free books, amazon credit and author swag, so make sure you read their post carefully to see what else they’re offering while you’re on their site for the keyword.

Bayside Blogger Causes Huge Splash Over Sparkly New Romance Novel!

Bayside Blogger dishes with the MermaidsHi there, Waterworld Mermaid Lagoon. Bayside Blogger here. My little gossip birdies (you know who you are) tell me that one of these so-called “Mermaids” has a new book out. That’s right. Nora Roberts-wannabe, Kerri Carpenter, just released Falling for the Right Brother. Who wants to fall for the right brother? My cute little stiletto-wearing self would more than likely go for the wrong brother. Wink, wink.

Rumor has it Kerri wrote two more books in this series. Even bigger rumor is that this series is all about…moi. Gasp! Now, who would be interested in little ole mascara-clad, gossip-loving, fabulous me? Snort. The real question, dear Mermaids, is who wouldn’t be?

While you try to learn who I really am, I’ll just go about my business and tell you that someone’s back in town. That’s right, little Ellie Owens has returned home. She goes by Elle now and is quite changed from the nerdy little mouse…

Cover Reveal: Jax Cassidy’s THE MERMAID CATCHES HER MATE

The Mermaid Catches Her Mate AvatarAs some of you know, the Waterworld Mermaids were created because I desperately wanted to make friends after moving to Northern Virginia, where I knew no one. (Boy, did that work out well!) So when I moved to Florida, the first thing I did was hunt down the local Space Coast chapter of RWA to try and do the same. Happily, I discovered a ton of amazing writers!

I also discovered that the Space Coast is one long and skinny county. Most of the STAR members live on the southern end (with the fancy beaches and the shopping). I live on the very northern tip (with the rockets and the alligators). So I got to know the writers up north pretty well–even the “snowbirds” (winter-only residents). And then I found out that one of my Nocturne Falls Universe sisters was moving back to Florida…closer to Orlando than Palm Bay…well, I absolutely had to get to know…

A big thank you and fishy kiss goes out to YA Books Central for revealing the cover of Mermaid Pintip’s Seize Today!

Because the Waterworld Mermaids Are Awesome

I had an AMAZING time at the Washington Romance Writers “In the Company of Writers” Retreat in Westminster, MD (maybe you could tell). I flew up and spent ten days in progressive Mermaid visits, including the retreat where we all met. Which was EPIC. More on that soon…love to the lagoon!

Cover Reveal: Kerri Carpenter’s FALLING FOR THE RIGHT BROTHER

We are flipping our fins in the lagoon for Kerri-Mermaid’s cover reveal for her newest book, FALLING FOR THE RIGHT BROTHER!

If you’ve never read Kerri’s books, you need to SWIM — don’t wade — to your nearest book retailer. They are charming, so much fun, and full of swoon!!! I remember the first time I read Kerri’s writing six years ago. We were at our very first critique group meeting at my house, and a few things stand out about that memory: my not-yet-renovated living room, the green curry that I worried was too spicy, and Kerri’s effortless voice! 

I am counting the days until I get my hands on this book on May 23! Until then, feast your eyes on this cover!

ABOUT A STAR TO STEER HER BY

I’m scarred. Broken. I’ll never be the same. But I will take this journey.

Ever since my last dive ended in bloodshed, I’ve been terrified to go back into the water. But the opportunity to spend a semester at sea is too good to pass up. I need to get my life back.

I never expected to love it this much. And I never expected Tristan MacDougall.

Rugged, strong, and with demons of his own, Tristan helps me find the courage I thought I had lost and heals me with every stolen moment we share. But the rules of the ship mean we can’t be together.

When a dive excursion goes terribly wrong, our only hope for survival is each other.
