A Brand New Year: A Brand New Me!

Denny's MermaidsWell, world, here’s the announcement you’ve been waiting for:)! No, not that one. And definitely, not that one (seriously? seriously, I can’t believe you thought that!).

I’m getting a face lift! I know you sit there and wonder what took me so long to make that call? But another no, not that face, I mean Denny Mermaid is getting a face lift! or should I say a new avatar! Look below for the gorgeous new me, courtesy of Lee Moyer (the graphic designer, illustrator, artist extraordinaire) and our own friendly pond-hopping princess, Mermaid Alethea Kontis.

Can you believe it? I was hanging out on Facebook, and Alethea tagged me on a comment and that’s how this love story began. I haven’t met Lee in person yet, but after a few emails, a visit to his website, and of course, his permission to use this gorgeous beauty below, I was hooked. And my new love is here to stay!

The perfect Mermaid goddess, don’t you think? Alethea saw it and thought of me, and since these two mega talents are buddies, he agreed to allow me to use this fabulous image.

And the other fantastic news, Lee also has agreed to an interview here at the Mermaid Pond in early 2014. Look for that extraordinary conversation in the beginning of the new year.

In the meantime, if I used the image below as a book cover, what’s the name of the book, and if she is a shifter who dwells in the sea, who is the hero of her destiny? (And yeah, I’m going to write this book, too). Inspiration!!!! (And I think the story will be rather sexy, too:)! Yeah, that’s what I said!

  1. Oh wow, Denny. That is GORGEOUS. And perfect for you. I love it. Kudos to Lee. Looking forward to meeting him in the pond. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Fierce! With that body, presence, and magic/mythology, she needs a hero that is equally hot and powerful on the dry land.

  3. Oh, she is stunning! Love her, Denny. I’m not sure of the book title, but I’m very curious about the visitor coming up behind her. And the map and her orb. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with and definitely looking forward to seeing this beauty in our waters!

  4. Holy sexy-sauce, Denny-Mermaid! LOVE it!

    I think your book would be called “Wet Fins & Sexy Sins” – ow ow!

  5. I’m still mesmerized by this illustration. Besides the obvious beauty, I think it was her power that drew me in, and reminded me of Denny, of course. Sexy fins, dark waters, magic, AND A TREASURE MAP. Ooh…Dark Waters? It’s a little cheesy, but it’s the kind of cheesy that publishers LOVE (says the woman with titles like “Enchanted” and “Dearest”).

  6. My brain is fried. I’ve been sitting here for twenty minutes trying to come up with an idea, and I’ve got…NOTHING. I’ll think on it for a while, and I’ll get back to you with an ingenious idea.
    But, maybe I’ll write my own mermaid story.
    Hey! That’s what we should do!!!!!
    Okay…off to think of my own story…
