DIVE INTO THIS FIN-TASTIC READ FOR JUST 99 CENTS!


Today (Sunday, March 29th) is International Mermaid Day and I couldn't let this day pass without sharing the mermaid love and doing something special.

For one week only, my RomCom, IN THE SWIM OF THINGS, will be on sale for just 99 cents. That's 361 pages of love, laughs, and mermaidy goodness for less than a dollar! This e-book about a professional mermaid who finds herself torn between a hunky surfer and a broody single dad will transport you to the sunny shores of Cape Cod, and I can't think of a better place to escape at the moment. 


This sale will run through my birthday on Saturday, April 4th. I hope IN THE SWIM OF THINGS will entertain you and make you smile. If you've already read it, please consider gifting the book to the mer-pals in your pod. I'm sure they'd appreciate you thinking of them.

Thanks in advance to anyone who's kind enough to share this sale on social media. I have posts up on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

Wishing you a Mer-mazing International Mermaid Day!

Blurb: A sexy, sun-soaked tale about a tail-wearing girl who makes a lot of waves—perfect for fans of Lauren Layne, Meghan Quinn, and Christina Lauren.

Ocean-loving Kyra Goodwin had to give up her dream of becoming the female Jacques Cousteau in order to take care of her father and brother, but being a mermaid at the Cape Cod Aquarium is pretty fintastic as far as alternative careers go.

Of course, life as a half-fish/half-woman isn’t all sunken treasure and Ariel twirls. Kyra has to deal with perpetually pruney fingers, eyes irritated by saltwater, and bratty kids on the daily, plus her glam alter ego can make dating really weird. (So many men have pervy siren-of-the-sea fantasies!) When she meets hunky surfer Cade, and he’s into her without knowing what she does for a living, Kyra thinks she’s finally won the romance lottery.

Unfortunately, Kyra’s plans for a carefree summer of catching waves with her new boyfriend run aground when Sea Star Beach, a place that holds great sentimental value for her, is taken over by a big-city developer who wants to build an exclusive resort. Kyra’s crusade to save her beloved beach threatens both her job and her relationship with Cade as does her growing closeness with her irresistibly broody merwrangler, Declan, whose precocious daughter is intent on playing matchmaker.

When a new family drama arises just as Kyra receives an offer that would turn her greatest desire into reality, she’s torn. Will she do what’s expected of her, or dive in and follow her heart?
