Hello, fishy friends! Carlene Mermaid here. How are we all doing? Read any good books lately? How about any sexy smart romances written by men? No??? Let’s remedy that! Some of you might be familiar with my regular “Guy Day” posts. These usually come about when I can find a gentleman who is willing to answer in-depth questions about how he would respond, think, and feel in different situations, thereby giving us a genuine male perspective. The purpose of these posts is to help women writers craft realistic and believable male characters in our stories. Some of our brave guests in the past have included a musician, firefighter, waiter, gamer and one of my favorites, a fashion blogger. But today I figured what could be more beneficial than going straight to the source–men who are actually writing romance. Rather than doing the traditional Guy Day interview, I thought it would be best to let our…

The Waterworld Mermaids are thrilled to have one of our own back in the lagoon today. Welcome, Avery Flynn!

Avery: The color of my underwear?
Kerri: Oh this chat is gonna be good!
I have new reason to love my publisher (you can read about it on my blog), so I’m thrilled to invite Evernight Publisher CEO Stacey Adderley into the Waterworld Mermaid lagoon.
Evernight is a digital first house based in Canada with a crack team of editors (mine is the awesome Emma Shortt, based in England) and designers. I won’t lie, one of the first things that really attracted me to Evernight was their amazing covers. However, after publishing two books (and hopefully more) with Evernight, you can bet I love a whole lot more about them now – but the covers are still to die for.
Enough from me, take it away Stacey!
