This week, I am very pleased to be able to introduce you to The Twilight Swimmer, a young-adult novel by A C Kavich. The title is available on Amazon and Amazon UK, and the Kindle version of the novel will be available for free from 9/16/13 to 9/20/13.
"Night after night, sixteen-year-old Brandi Vine is drawn to a rocky New England beach. The very spot where her sister's lifeless body washed ashore after a night spent swimming alone. Brandi mourns beside the cold water, unaware of the haunting gray eyes watching her from beneath the waves... Brandi soon yields herself to a forbidden romance with the young man beneath the water, the only one who can unlock the mystery of her sister's final swim."
I hope you will enjoy reading this novel as much as I am.

SL Mermaid Dances
The merfolk of Second Life (SL) love music, and they love to dance. The photo below is from a recent mermaid dance which is held on a weekly basis. If you are a mermaid or merman in the virtual world of Second Life, watch for event notices in the popular mermaid groups. For those that are not yet a member of an SL mermaid group, send me an email and I will suggest ones you can join.
Mermaid fans that haven't tried Second Life can get more information at secondlife.com as well as my first blog post on the subject. Click the image to see it full-size.
