Mermaids, ahoy!

This week we're celebrating Buzz girl Tera Lynn Child's upcoming release of Fins Are Forever!  Next week you'll be able to get your flippers on a copy of Fins, and find out what happens next in the story of Lily and Quince.
I'm really excited to be heading to NYC for the RWA conference with Tera next week.  On Tuesday, Tera's release day, RWA will be holding their giant Literacy signing. What a great way to kick off the sequel to Forgive My Fins.  If you're in NYC, you should swim on by.  And, if you're not in NYC, you should (of course) float over to your local bookstore and pick up a copy of Fins are Forever.  The paperback of Forgive My Fins is out that same day, in case you haven't yet read the first installment of the undersea saga.
Since we're writing about our favorite water memories this week -- I'll just post a picture of a recent one:   Tera and me on my friend Ryan's boat. This is on Lake Union, where every Tuesday, crazy sailboat skippers (like Ryan) race and then raft up to socialize.  It's super fun, and though our crew doesn't usually win or even finish near the top, we have a great time on the water.  As you can see, the weather was cold and windy for this sail!
 
GIVEAWAY: Each day this week, you can post a comment to enter the drawing to win one of three sets of Tera's Fins Books.  

Today's question:
If you were a mermaid, what would your name be?
(Example: mine would be Penelope Seaflower.)
Good luck!  Winners will be drawn and posted on Sunday.
Hugs,
