Tangled Tides Launch Web Party!


Today is the release day for Karen Amanda Hooper's debut YA novel, Tangled Tides! Karen's blog was one of the first I followed when I started blogging, so I'm BEYOND excited to have witnessed her journey and to celebrate her release day with her!! Congratulations!


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. 

I got my copy in the mail last week (pre-order, baby!) and I've already started reading it. I can tell I'm in for quite the ride! I can't wait to swim farther into this underwater world she's created! And speaking of...


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...

I CHOOSE SIRENS! These creatures are singers AND they control the weather. You can't get much more awesome than that!
