Today is a very exciting day in the mermaid lagoon. Not only is it the second day of our week-long anniversary celebration, but it is the release day of ENCHANTED, the debut novel of our very own Alethea Kontis!

Have you kissed a lot of frogs on your search for true love?

Have you ever fallen in love with your best friend?

Have you kept a secret from a crush — for fear that he or she would see you differently if he or she knew the truth?

Have you ever wondered if fairy tales really do come true? And what the world would look like if they did, all at the very same time?

If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, then you need to read ENCHANTED! And this is your chance to win your very own autographed copy! Because we are so excited about today’s giveaway, we are including a ceramic Frog King and exclusive YARWA swag as part of the prize.
