The Best of The Mermaid’s Mirror by L.K. Madigan

Today marks the end of our October Book of the Month feature on The Mermaid’s Mirror by L.K. Madigan … and while we’re a little sad that it’s all coming to an end, we’re excited to look back at all the fun we’ve had this month!

Special thanks once again to the lovely & fabulous Lisa — she’s a rock star!!!

The Mermaid’s Mirror Writing Contest

You’ve got until midnight (PT) tonight to enter this contest, for a chance to win a signed copy of Mermaid’s Mirror and assorted mermaid goodies hand-selected by L.K. Madigan herself!

To enter, tell us what you think life would be like under the sea.

In 250-500 words, tell us a short story about being a mermaid or merman living under the sea. What’s it like? How do you communicate? How do you travel? What sort of technology, if any, do you have? Where do you sleep? What do you eat? Do you talk to humans, or is it forbidden? Are you friends with other sea creatures, or are they your enemy? Or are they your food?
