Yet Another Raffle! Giving away a copy of "Church of the Old Mermaids"!

in Books

I promised one more raffle before Solstice, and it's a good one!  Sister Kim Mermaid will send the lucky winner a copy of her wonderful novel Church of the Old Mermaids.  Just leave a comment at the end of this post between now and Friday morning December 19th at 10 AM PST.  By now you know the drill!  🙂

Myla Alvarez, novice, walks into the Sonoran desert near Tucson, Arizona and begins telling stories about the Old Mermaids who were washed ashore onto the New Desert when the Old Sea dried up. In this mystical new world, they lived, created, and walked in beauty. Myla finds sustenance and meaning in their lives and stories. When an old friend returns to the Old Mermaid Sanctuary, Myla questions everything about her life. What if Homeland Security discovers the refugees she harbors at the sanctuary? Will the Old Mermaids come to her aid? Church of the Old Mermaids is a tale of redemption, love, compassion, and mystery.

Be sure to visit Kim's Old Mermaids blog, where she's writing and posting new stories about the Old Mermaids all the time, like this one.  

And if you don't win the raffle, you just might have to buy a copy for yourself.  Wit and wonder, love and mystery.  What else could one want for Solstice?

Thoughtful, sparkling comments. . .

    Thanks for this wonderful raffle, Joanna! Until early this morning, we were without power for a week due to a humdinger of an ice storm that swept through our area leaving an incredible amount of damage in its wake. Many are still without power here and may not have it for some time. As such, I feel especially fortunate that I am able to enter this! Thank you ever so much!!!!! Sue
