Books! Real books. These arrived today. They're elegant and I'm delighted. Also astonished. I wrote all those words? If you missed the free eBook promotion or just don't like eBooks, now you can have a paperback. http://tinyurl.com/pefz4km Enjoy! #OutingTheMermaid #AnnMedlock #equalvoice #Hedgebrook

Said I'd do a happy dance to welcome new readers. How about this? Well, the colors are nice.

I must add Drew Bedo's magnificent photo for my book cover to my huge pantheon of great spiral (phi) images. Yes, that's a white cane in his photo--he is blind--and the antique camera he used to make the shot. See more of his work at www.quietlightphoto.com.

Outing the Mermaid: A Novel of Love, Fear & Misogyny

“The prose is poetry, yet completely unselfconscious, and that ain’t easy.” –Robert Page Jones, Screenwriter & Novelist From the Jane Austen room at The Sylvia Beach Hotel: “Outing the Mermaid is Jane Austen with sex.” –Goody Cable, Hotel Proprieto...

A final count on the weekend ebook give-away--532 people downloaded Outing the Mermaid, and that yielded one First and one Second Place in online "sellers." My thanks to all the 532 who helped make my novel a "best seller." I know, I know, it's all quite weird. BUT. If those downloaders read and like the book, and tell their friends, write good reviews at http://tinyurl.com/pefz4km, and people who see all that buy ebooks or paperback copies...thennnn, there really will be sales. At least that's the theory. Thanks for playing, y'all. Now read the book?

I count 65 Friends who have messaged me that they've downloaded the free ebook of my novel. If you aren't one of them, please know that the promotion ends tonight, at midnight. Git on over to http://tinyurl.com/pefz4km and click on Buy. The price is $0.00. Can't get a better deal than that, right?

Go to http://tinyurl.com/pefz4km, click Buy Now, and the price of my novel, Outing the Mermaid, is $0.00--for just a few more hours. How could anyone resist the cover blurb?--"From the Jane Austen Room of the Sylvia Beach Hotel--'Outing the Mermaid is Jane Austen with sex.'"--Goody Cable, Proprietor.

Good ole Amazon has put a confusing option on the page for getting my novel as a freebie. Ignore the "Read for Free" option here that actually traps people into paying 10 bucks a month! Instead, click BUY. The price will come up $0.00 and you'll have Outing the Mermaid for no money atall. http://tinyurl.com/pefz4km The freebie lasts till midnight this Sunday.

Here's how it's going so far with the promotion for #OutingTheMermaid. I'm stunned that there's a "women's fiction" category, and laughing that a roman å clef about things that happened in my lifetime are deemed "historical." Oy. But please keep going to http://tinyurl.com/pefz4km, and please keep Sharing the freebie. Especially guys. Women's fiction?--puhleeze. #AnnMedlock #equalvoice

At midnight tonight (Thursday) the publisher of #OutingTheMermaid is starting an eBook promotion that ends at midnight Sunday. As in, the eBook is free, just for those days. So you'll click here and accept the gift? http://tinyurl.com/pefz4km

It's got to be the best book blurb ever: "From the Jane Austen room at the Sylvia Beach Hotel--'Outing the Mermaid is Jane Austen with sex.'"--Goody Cable, Proprietor. The book is online now at http://tinyurl.com/pefz4km

Every time I go to a gathering of friends, people whose names have never appeared as a Like or a Comment here say, "Oh, your posts are so interesting," or "I really like the stuff you post." It's nice to hear but/and it would also be nice to know, at the time of a post, that it's being well received. Do you have any suggestions on how to get people to leave evidence they've read and liked what you post?

Heading for Hedgebrook's Equivox brunch soon. (Hedgebrook is a great retreat for women writers.) I'm hosting a table (Board members do that). And my guests are all guys--I'm calling it the Righteous Brothers Table. I may be seeing my book cover in my coffee. http://tinyurl.com/pefz4km

Sunday belongs to the Hedgebrook writers' retreat--I'm hosting a table at the fabulous annual brunch, Equivox, in Seattle. Without my stints on the Board, and my residencies there, there would be no book of poetry and no novel. Hedgebrook gave me the nudge and the launchpad. Ever grateful. And so delighted that the novel is now online at http://tinyurl.com/pefz4km

I've seen a lot of mermaids, but not on a guitar. #OutingTheMermaid is online tomorrow. It's a book I made, not a guitar—I've never made a guitar. #BooksThatMatter #BloomingTwig
