‘Tis Better to Be Talked About

enchanted…than not talked about, my Mama Mitchell always said.

Over at whatchYAreading, Caitlin and Christine discuss their reactions to Enchanted.


Christine and I picked up Enchanted by Alethea Kontis because of how cute it sounded. And we were not disappointed! Fairy tales, family drama, political intrigue, and a dashing frog-prince. What’s not to love?


Find out what these ladies expected of Enchanted, what they got, and what they’d like to see in the future…

Video Chat — For Real This Time!

A miscommunication last month over at Coffee Time Romance left Leanna Renee Hieber, Suzanne Lazear, and me watching tumbleweed in an empty online chatroom.

This Sunday at 2pm EST, fellow Mermaids Robin Covington, Avery Flynn and I are going to try it again…this time on video! We’re co-hosting (with Bewitching Book Tours), so there’s no mix-up. And there will be prizes…like a signed ARC of ENCHANTED!

Avery’s written up the deets for us here — be sure to spread the word. The more the merrier!


Have you ever wanted to see a Waterworld Mermaid in her natural habitat? Chat about books in the lagoon? Ask questions about our latest releases and upcoming novels?

Waterworld Mermaids Alethea Kontis, Robin Covington and Avery Flynn have some amazing news to share. We are co-hosting an hour-long Rockin’ Romance video chat at 2 p.m. this Sunday (March 11). Stop by  to talk books, music, and chocolate with us. In addition, I’m sure they’ll be some mancandy, writer gossip and some inappropriate language. (Hey, we’re Waterworld Mermaids, we’re known for our outrageous enthusiasm, not our decorum.)

We’ll be giving away a humongous gift basket to one lucky participant filled with signed copies of Up a Dry Creek by Avery Flynn and Enchanted by Alethea Kontis, an iTunes gift card, reading goodies and at least one box of your favorite Girl Scout cookies!

What’s that? You’re evil twin is planning to take over the world this Sunday by destroying all the bookstores on the Eastern shore so you can’t make the chat? Totally understandable. Leave a question or suggest a conversation topic in the comments below and you’ll be in the running for the Rockin’ Romance gift basket.

Participating in the video chat is easy. Just visit at 2 p.m. Sunday and follow the onscreen prompts. All you need is a a web cam, a love of romance novels and a sense of humor. We can’t wait to chat with you in the lagoon!

Late Night Coffee Time

So…I may or may not be having a chat from 9-11pm tonight over at Coffee Time Romance:

“Once Upon A Time: Magical History, Steampunk, Gaslight and Fairy Tales! Three YA Authors dish on magic, mayhem, curses, princes and happily ever afters!”

With award winning, bestselling fantasy and romance authors Alethea Kontis, Leanna Renee Hieber and debut author Suzanne Lazear.

Chatting and monkeying around and giveaways and everything! I’m really looking forward to this! Only…they haven’t gotten back to us, and we don’t seem to be listed on the calendar.

I’m going to play this like we’re still on. If you’re free tonight, hiding from the cold weather on your computer at home with a nice warm cup of tea, we’d love to have you! Make sure your Java software is up to date and click on over here to join the conversation.
