Fins Are Forever Gift Giveaway!

As most of you know, I am a member of the Splash Team. It’s my job to spread the word about Fins Are Forever, the sequel to Tera Lynn Child’s novel Forgive My Fins.

On Lily Sanderson’s eighteenth birthday she’ll become just a girl—still a mergirl, true, but signing the renunciation will ink Princess Waterlily of Thalassinia out of existence. That leaves plain old Lily living on land, dating the boy she loves, and trying to master this being-human deal once and for all.

Now that Lily and Quince are together, mer bond or not, she’s almost content to give up her place in the royal succession of Thalassinia. But just when she thinks she has everything figured out, the waves start to get rough. Lily’s father sends a certain whirlpool-stirring cousin to stay with her on land. What did Doe do to get herself exiled from Thalassinia and stuck in terraped form, when everyone knows how much she hates humans? And why why why is she batting her eyelashes at Lily’s former crush, Brody?
The seafoam on the raging surf comes when a merboy from Lily’s past shows up—Tellin asks Lily for something that clouds her view of the horizon. There’s a future with Quince on land, her loyalty to the kingdom in the sea, and Lily tossing on the waves in the middle. Will she find a way to reconcile her love, her duty, and her own dreams?

To celebrate the release of Fins Are Forever on Tuesday I’m going to have a small giveaway. Last year I gave away a copy of the bookbecause I just happened to have two. This year I don’t and I plan not to have that happen again, but I do have goodies for you. This year I have cool treats. I tried to keep them as mermaid themed as possible.
Lip gloss, blue and green nail polish, blue earrings, a book mark and some mermaid tattoos.

I know it’s small, but I give what I can. This contest is for US only. Sorry International friends, not this year. Here are the guidelines
