Have you ever seen a mermaid? Do you know someone who has? Do you have a family legend or terrifying (or delightful tale) that involves a sea creature, a mermaid, or a magical creature relative to the mermaid? Or perhaps you know a real-life mermaid and/or you can hold your breath for a really long time under water? If any of these questions have sparked your imagination or memories send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I may include them in my next book. Note: I am NOT looking for lengthy fiction submissions. This is a collection of facts and folklore, so your great grandmother’s Irish tale is a yes, but your own romantic short-story is a no. I’d love actual encounters with the merfolk–I know they are out there!!! This includes your first-hand account of the giant squid! And watch here for more details on the forthcoming new book on mermaids–a real print book!! If I pick your story you’ll be notified and receive a signed copy of the book when it comes out in the Spring of 2013.

Hi, I’m a Woppaburra desecent, (Aboriginal Australian). Our great aunt, told us, that her great uncle told her that on our Island (Nth keppel, Queensland) , they use to meet with mermaids, at a secret place, and they would give us gifts of pearls. One of our dreaming stories. I Believe in them. Love to read your book.
I would love to include you story in the forthcoming mermaid book. I’ll contact you via email, or you can contact me if you see this first!
