Shadow in the Sea

Readers will return to Windwaithe Island once again. When sixteen-year-old Sadelyn Hanson washes up on the shores of Windwaithe Island, her beauty and the strange marks on her wrist make superstitious locals suspect she is a mermaid. Feigning amnesia, Sade hides a far worse secret: she was sailing to her own murder trial when she was thrown overboard by the real killer, the cunning and cruel Captain Westwood.

Sade's quiet effort to rebuild her life on the island is threatened when she meets an actual young merman. Unable to speak his language, Sade still longs for the warm companionship he offers, despite the locals' dire legends about merfolk and their dark magic. But her confused feelings for the impossible boy become the least of her problems when Captain Westwood's ship docks at Windwaithe. With nowhere to escape, Sade must trust in the one person who doesn't fear the merfolk. A woman who had dealings with them herself—years ago

Round Three of Revisions

This is the writing that never ends. At least it feels that way. I have more revisions to write in very little time and find my mind is consumed with mermaids and underwater worlds every waking moment (and even some while I'm asleep). But each time I polish up the manuscript it becomes better and more as I always imagined it should be. My publisher asked me to write my dedication and acknowledgments and send them to her. Something about writing a dedication makes the publishing of my book seem so much more real. They still haven't settled on an artist for the cover, but the portfolios they have sent me to look at are all incredible--so it should be a great cover!

Hopefully this will be the last round of edits. I'm impatient for this book to be on the shelves at the bookstores!
