Zombies and Mermaids and Goodbyes

*Grabs a towel from the hot cabana boy who stands guard at the edge of the Waterworld Mermaid lagoon.*

So it seems this was my last dip into the Waterworld Mermaid lagoon and before we get to the good stuff (hello awesome contest!), I wanted to take a moment to say a huge thank you to all my fishy sisters on the site. Y’all are a wonderful bunch of mermaids and I’m so glad to have gotten to hang out with you in the lagoon and in real life. Even though I’m hanging up my fins, I’m happy to buy the next round when we’re all together again. 🙂


But enough of that, let’s get on to the good stuff!!!

It’s almost Halloween and that means a good zombie read, am I right? Well here’s a fantabulous contest sponsored by one of my favorites, Emma Shortt. Her debut novel, Waking up Dead, and it’s all about the zombies… Of course where the undead roam a zombie slaying kit is so needed, and does she have a fab one for you!

Axe: check

Flashlight: check

Super hunky guy to fight the zombies with: not quite…

Here’s a sneak peek of Waking up Dead…

WD posterYou know your life has hit rock bottom when you’re living off cooked rats and showering once every few months—if you’re lucky. But for Jackson Hart things are about to get a whole lot worse. When her best friend, Tye, disappears hunting for food, kick-ass Jackson’s ‘head south to safety’ plan looks like it’s dead before it’s even begun. But then she meets ex-mechanic Luke Granger, who takes her to his bunker, feeds her with non-rat based food, and offers her protection against the zombie hordes—not that she needs it. She knows how to use a machete and isn’t afraid to. 

Jackson was tempted to stay in the city with her rescuer. Food, shampoo and the possibility of finally getting laid, what more could she ask for? But the flesh eaters are getting smarter and the bunker is compromised, so Jackson and Luke have no choice but to make the journey south. 

Luke and Jackson team up to find other humans in a road-trip romance for the ages. They travel for thousands of miles with zombies shadowing their every move. They must utilize every resource at their disposal…and then some. On the way, they discover that even if flesh eating zombies are knocking down their door, there’s always time for sex and even love.

Good luck in the contest everyone and a special shout out to all the Waterworld Mermaids. Fishy kisses, ladies. Fishy kisses.

  1. My dear Avery Mermaid, Emma Shortt’s book sounds awesome — just like you! Thanks for bringing so much fun to the lagoon, and I am fully counting on that drink. In fact, marking it in my calendar right now. 🙂

  2. Avery, you’ll always be a Mermaid and fishy sister in my heart. I know those waters are rough now, but we’re keeping the lagoon warm for you, and saving up some glitter, too!

  3. Hmmm. I’m not so sure how mermaids usually interact with zombies. Can zombies even swim? Lol.
    Fun post, Miss Avery Flynn, as always. We will certainly miss you in this lagoon! Make sure you come back and visit us often.
    Let’s do that coffee soon! Hugs!
