Congratulations Karen!!!

It's not every day one of my friends has their first book release--so when I found out Karen Amanda Hooper's novel TANGLED TIDES was coming out today of COURSE I wanted to take part in the huge celebration she has going on.

Karen's organized a massive underwater web war between the sea creatures--and I've chosen to side with...


(I mean, really, like there's any other option. As a kid Ariel TOTALLY convinced me I wanted to live Under the Sea.) :)

Wanna join in on the fun? Go check out the details at Karen’s BLOG. She's giving away a signed copy of her book and some other sea creature themed prizes. 

There's also an underwater web war on Twitter. Tweet which sea creatures you’re rooting for and if you include the hashtag #TangledTides--you could win!!!!

But before you go, here's a little info about TANGLED TIDES:

Yara Jones doesn’t believe in sea monsters—until she becomes one.

When a hurricane hits her island home and she wakes up with fins, Yara finds herself tangled up in an underwater world of mysterious merfolk and secretive selkies. Both sides believe Yara can save them by fulfilling a broken promise and opening the sealed gateway to their realm, but they are battling over how it should be done. The selkies want to take her life. The merfolk want something far more precious.

Treygan, the stormy-eyed merman who turned Yara mer, will stop at nothing and sacrifice everything to protect his people—until he falls for Yara. The tides turn as Yara fights to save herself, hundreds of sea creatures, and the merman who has her heart. She could lose her soul in the process—or she might open the gateway to a love that’s deeper than the oceans.

  1. I'm looking forward to reading this. Excited for all the buzz on the Internet for Karen today.

  2. Mermaids get all the press. ;)
    I'm going with sirens so I can fly and sing like, well, like a siren.

  3. *dances in the sparklefetti*
    Merfolk are fighting hard to take the #1 slot, but so far sirens are winning.

    Thanks so much for celebrating with me! *hugs*

    Cake and mimosas for everyone! :)

  4. Well, this Siren says she is really looking forward to reading Karen's book. That's right--I chose Siren. Being all musical and weathering control was just to hard to resist.

  5. *runs through flashing the Team Sirens sign*

  6. Just wanted to say thanks again for celebrating with me. :) I'll be announcing the results of the war soon.
