Tangled Tides – Underwater Web War. It’s ON.

Hi Everyone!!!

Are you shopping today? I’m not, in fact, it’s my first time in 4 years that I have the day after Thanksgiving off! I can tell you… it’s a lot better not having to work.


Welcome to the Underwater Web War. Mua ha ha ha ha ha! 

Oh yeah, baby. It’s ON.

Confused? I’ll elaborate. Fellow blogger and super awesome author Karen Amanda Hooper has a book coming out today!!!!

Guess which book? Psst. I’ll give you a hint… it’s in the title of this post ;o) AND, here’s a picture of the cover.

I know, right? SO exciting. AND what a gorgeous cover. That’s it. I want to be a mermaid.

Here’s the important stuff!!

First of all…


Karen Amanda Hooper’s young adult novel, TANGLED TIDES, is officially being released into the world today. I’m joining the celebration by fighting in the war–the underwater web war between the sea creatures!

Karen’s story contains battling merfolk, selkies, sirens and gorgons. She says she loves all of them, but she wants everyone else to choose a side, so…



  1. Sirens are of the sun – hello, who doesn’t love the sun?
  2. They need warmth – uh, check. Did someone turn down the heat again?
  3. They’re seductive singers – uh… well, we can pretend.
  4. They control the weather – oh yeah, bring on the destruction.
  5. They steal memories from humans – what was that? Oh, you can’t remember. Sorry.
How cool is that picture over there? The talented Alexandra Shostak created it!! How awesome, huh?

Wanna learn more or join in on the fun? Go check out the details at Karen’s blog:

Summary of the story:
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.
