In my previous blog post, we were introduced to author Erin Hayes and her newly released young-adult novella, How to be a Mermaid. I have since read the book, and found it to be an excellent read.
This week, I am teaming up with Ms. Hayes to give away an eBook copy of How to be a Mermaid. The raffle is being conducted by Rafflecopter, and opened when this blog post was published on July 21, 2015. The raffle will end on July 28th at 12am US Central time. Good luck to all!

The Glass Mermaid
The second title in the Falling in Deep collection was released on July 14th, The Glass Mermaid by Poppy Lawless. Here is the synopsis:
I'm the last mermaid.
I’m back on shores of Lake Erie, but the cold waters are silent. There is nothing here for me but ghosts and the beach glass that litters the rocky shore. Long ago, I lived below the waves. Now, I am the sole survivor, and at long last, my mermaid glamour is leaving me.
Every day, I walk the beach. Every day, I wonder what happened to my people. The little pieces of colored glass that wash ashore give me simple pleasure. They are gifts from the lake, reminders of home. I fashion them into trinkets: necklaces, earrings, bracelets. They are beautiful things. The humans seem to love them.
Every day, I walk the beach. Nothing ever changes, until the day he says hello.
It’s not a question, it’s a fact. The cancer is eating me alive. They told me I have six months to live, maybe less. I came home, back to Chancellor on Lake Erie, to die. The sunsets are vivid there, and I will relish every one.
I've never seen anything more beautiful than a Lake Erie sunset until I see her.
All life is as fragile as glass.
What would you sacrifice to save the one you love?The story, like the synopsis, is presented from two points of view, Kate's and Cooper's. This works very well for this story. Pay a visit to Amazon, where you can find the Kindle edition of The Glass Mermaid for only 99 cents.

According to Gizmag, the wise folks over at Oregon State University have developed a variety of dulce that tastes like bacon.
"Not only does it apparently taste like bacon, but its translucent crinkly red leaves even look a bit like it, too."
