News. The text 'news' underneath a big envelope. News and updates on the site.

Quick (and very belated) announcement: The ebook editions of both Sea Foam and Silence and Feather by Feather and Other Stories are discounted throughout the rest of May!

Sea Foam and Silence is discounted to $0.99 (or what its equivalent is in your currency when I submitted the price change) and Feather by Feather has been discounted to $1.99 (or its equivalent in your currency).

But, hey, it is late and I should get some sleep after staying up way too late watching Eurovision, so let’s talk about May and books a bit more! May is also #mermay, you see! Which, basically, means that my Twitter TL is filled with the most gorgeous of mermaid art. Hence the discount of Sea Foam and Silence. It is a perfect #mermay treat! (Feather by Feather and Other Stories also has a little mermaid retelling, but the vast majority of that book is not mermaid-related. There’s a kelpie and some swan maidens. They’re as close as the other stories get to having mermaids.)

Anyway, it took me a ridiculous long time to connect the dots regarding #mermay, mermaids and, you know, my little mermaid retelling. WTH, brain? That is some seriously terrible connect-the-dots work there. But rather than complain about my terrible and awful brain. Let’s look at some other books and stories that you could read for mermay! 😀

The Seafarer’s Kiss by Julia Ember was released in May and it, too, is a queer little mermaid retelling! Bisexual in this case. So… If you want more queer mermaid retellings for mermay… That said, there is criticism of the way the book portrays enbies and trans people, so do be warned of that.

Who Is Willing by M.C.A. Hogarth features the Naysha, a mermaid-like alien race. They’re secondary characters, but they’re very prominent, so… If you happen to have a hankering for mermaids in space… This novella may well be worth looking at/for.

If you’re looking for an m/m erotica novella, Ariel Tachna’s Why Nileas Loved the Sea might be of interest to you.

Want something more YA? Maybe Between the Sea and Sky by Jaclyn Dolamore is more your style. It’s been ages since I read it, but I remember it as a sweet, fast read.

And… Somehow I was under the impression that I had more mermaid-related books in my life. Anyway! Hope there’s something you enjoy in that list!
