Happy Valentine's Day!

I hope every single one of you get shot in the butt with a heart-shaped arrow today.

I played my part in spreading some love by contributing an original short story to the In His Eyes anthology. Have you read Tangled Tides yet? If so, then you already know Treygan. You can get to know him a little more by reading The Qualm Before the Storm. It's a short story, told by Teygan, about the day before he turns Yara into a mermaid. It over laps the opening scene of the novel, but now you can read Treygan's view of things.

Want a little taste?

One more sunset until I blurred the line between right and wrong. I would become a pebble tossed into a pond of despair. Ripple effects from my actions would forever change the lives of so many sea creatures. So why did I feel so insignificant? Because tomorrow, I would take away a human’s right to choose. Tomorrow, I would do whatever it took to turn Yara Jones into one of us. Not one of us, one of them. I had to stop pretending that I was a pure or noble merman. Tomorrow, I would prove that I’m a monster, by turning an unsuspecting girl into a mermaid.

  7. How awesome! I have to check this out! Especially for yours. :)

  8. Glimpse was a very cute paranormal love story. It's almost like Romeo and Juliet in a way because Zellie and Avery want to be together so much, but their families are so against it. It causes you to root for Zellie and Avery and their young passionate love story. Zellie Wells has definitely been added to my list of favorite characters of all times!
