I’ve got giveaways today! Two of them. Well, I’m doing one and Reviews by Molly is doing one. For efficiency’s sake, let’s start with the giveaway I’m sponsoring on my blog, then at the end of this post, I’ll give you a link to head on over to Molly’s site. Easy peasy.
Giveaway of Tidal Whispers ARC e-book:
GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED
Congratulations to Becky Doughty!! who was lucky commenter #2 as selected by random.org. I didn’t count Julie Reece since she’s a contributing author and already has a copy of the ARC.
We’re almost to the release date for Tidal Whispers, an ocean-themed anthology from J. Taylor Publishing featuring stories from Jocelyn Adams, Julie Reece, Kelly Said and yours truly. That means we’re pining for early readers and reviewers, and therefore have some advanced reader copies (ARCs) to give away. Each of us has an ARC to give to a lucky commenter, so I highly recommend you pay a visit to each blog to increase your chances.
The Story Blurbs:
Heart’s Desire by Julie Reece
After a terrible accident, Tessa returns to her family beach house to heal. She doesn’t expect to see her first summer crush from seven years before. Cameron, though, reappears and ignites a relationship that’s far more intense than ever before. The only problem? Summer is once again coming to an end, and this time, Tessa will have to decide whether to choose life with Cameron or to never see him again.
The Sweetest Song by Claire Gillian
Under Poseidon’s rule, Circe is the most destructive siren in the Pacific ocean, her songs luring ships and their crew to their watery graves. Not Otis, the best halibut fisherman in the Alaskan waters. His ship, the Calypso, has avoided disaster each time Circe set her sights on him.
Given one last chance to deliver Otis to Davy Jones’ locker, Circe takes to land to waylay the handsome captain. Instead, it may be Otis himself who hooks the Siren.
Pearl of Pau’maa by Kelly Said
Should Miki choose to wed the local wealthy boy she doesn’t love, her stomach will stop grumbling. Her soul, however, will suffocate. With one last opportunity before she must concede, she sneaks off for a final dive to her hidden crate at the bottom of the seabed. What waits for her is more than a captured lobster. It’s a treasure she cannot claim without great sacrifice or true love.
The Undergarden by Jocelyn Adams
Nixie, a water sprite, lives a solitary existence as she struggles to understand the strange world beyond her waters. When she meets one of the pink ones, a curious boy named Wyatt, their friendship blooms into a love that can exist only upon the sands that divide his solid ground from her underwater paradise. Some love, though, once born, cannot be undone, even in the face of death.
Sounds great, eh? If you’re on Goodreads, you might wanna click this:

Also a Blog Tour Stop with Reviews by Molly!
A sponsored e-book giveaway for The P.U.R.E.
Head over to Reviews by Molly to enter for a giveaway of an ebook copy of my debut novel, The P.U.R.E., a romantic mystery.
My first thoughts were Nessie and Kraken, but so many stories have already been done about them. Honestly, I would love to see a story centered around hippocamps. Not many people know about the glorious creatures that pulled Posidon’s chariot. My love for these half-horse, half-fish creatures led me to include them in some of my own writing. The Trevi Fountain in Italy gave me the inspiration I needed.
Hippocamps, huh? Very cool! 🙂
Okay – I’m going to be SOOO cliche, but I’m going to blame it on my nine-year-old. WE LOVE MERFOLK! Both the creepy and cool, the flashy and the subtle, the grumpy and the gregarious! Bring on the fin-folk!

This sounds like so much fun – I’ve added the book to my GOODREADS, too.
When I was a child my brother and I swam on a summer swim team at a private pool every year. In the winter we swam on the schools team. I can remember at the end of each race wishing that I had fins and a tail so I could just fly past everyone the last 15 meters and just spray the heck out of them with my tail. I’ve always loved practically living in the water. As I got older my boyfriends would have to come to the pool & practically drag me out of the water just to go on a date. Even now my inlaws have a large built in pool and I live 2 blocks from Lake Michigan. I’m sure that I have some type of connection with the water and the creatures within it.
Hi, Claire! I received my mug and bookmark today 🙂 Just wanted to let you know I linked back to you in my Reflections post:
