BLACK WATERS

Book #1 in the Songstress Trilogy
The Story...

Sixteen-year-old mermaid Abby Carson thought she had her secret under control. Who cares if after “the change” took place, she became so beautiful that all the girls at school hated her. And the boys, well, when they look at her, hate isn't exactly what's going through their minds.

But when Abby witnesses a teenage girl's murder by a preternatural creature off the coast of Cape Cod, her carefully controlled life slips into chaos. Hiding in the water until the killer's gone is a must. Getting spotted by Brian Baker, a boy from school, isn't. Neither is falling in love with him. That definitely wasn't part of the plan.

Combine all this with the mysterious mermaid box Abby receives as a postmortem birthday gift from her dad, and she's pulled even deeper into the world of shades and monsters. Once the full force of Abby's deadly siren powers are revealed, the only one she can hurt more than herself is the boy she loves.

Black Waters Staying Free


Well, today is the day I'm suppose to push Black Waters back up to $0.99 on Smashwords. I thought about doing it, I really did, but for now I'm going to continue to offer the book for free. I'm hoping this strategy translates into a good-sized readership. That way when Evening Tide, the next book in the series, is ready for release, I might have somewhat of an established fan base. (I'm no marketing guru, so we'll see if my little plot works.) Anyway, wish me luck.  If you download the book for free, then please don't be shy about writing a review. I'd really appreciate it! :)

I'm Finally on BN.com


I'm psyched to say that Black Waters is now on barnesandnoble.com, and, yes, it's still available for free. I'm pretty excited about this, though I'm not sure how easy it is to find the book on the Barnes & Noble website. I tried searching for it a bunch of different ways, but I always came up empty-handed. The only way I was able to find it was by typing in my name, and really-- who is going to do that but me? Anyway, wish me luck :)

A Little Publicity


Last month Immortal Ink Publishing put out a call to all indie writers asking them to send in info about their books. Immortal Ink then selected a few to review. Though Black Waters was not one of the books selected, one of the reviewers did mention that she really liked the cover. I thought that was kind of cool. (It was nice to be mentioned at all, as it sounded like a lot of people sent books over there.) Yes, publicity is always good-- at least good publicity is.:)
