A NEW BOOK
The novel Iíve been calling Walking the Mermaid is done, though itís now mutated into The Mermaidís Tale; A Novel of Love, Fear, & Misogyny.
Itís being printed in both hardback and paperback, each just over 400 pages (and I cut a lot). As you can see, itís gorgeous to look at, so even if you donít read novels you might want a copy sitting around just to stare at.
Dromnavarna Press is a boutique publishing operation so the runs of this ďbeta editionĒ are smallóand pricy. Hardbacks are 30 bucks, paperbacks are 20. (Forget the .95 or .99 nonsenseólike weíre too dumb to know it means a buck.)
If youíre thinking of gifts, be warned: a few parts of the novel are x-rated. You might not want to give it to someone whoís easily shocked. You can sample a snippet here (itís PG).
If you’re close enough to stop by my office in Langley, let me know. Your books will await you, with no shipping charges. Otherwise, use this handy PayPal route to getting your copies.
