Tangled Tides: Underwater Web War

It's a big day for the awesome Karen Amanda's the release day for her book Tangled Tides!

Yara Jones doesn’t believe in sea monsters—until she becomes one.

When a hurricane hits her island home and she wakes up with fins, Yara finds herself tangled up in an underwater world of mysterious merfolk and secretive selkies. Both sides believe Yara can save them by fulfilling a broken promise and opening the sealed gateway to their realm, but they are battling over how it should be done. The selkies want to take her life. The merfolk want something far more precious.

Treygan, the stormy-eyed merman who turned Yara mer, will stop at nothing and sacrifice everything to protect his people—until he falls for Yara. The tides turn as Yara fights to save herself, hundreds of sea creatures, and the merman who has her heart. She could lose her soul in the process—or she might open the gateway to a love that’s deeper than the oceans. 

Tangled Tides is all about an underwater war between merfolk and selkies. But there are sirens and gorgons involved, too. So, to celebrate the book release, a bunch of us are taking sides in this war...and you can, too!

Karen is having a fun and easy Twitter contest to win a signed copy of Tangled Tides as well as lots of other fun sea creature prizes. All you have to do is tweet which side you choose in this underwater war and why with the hashtag #TangledTides.

And Karen will be on Twitter all day celebrating and answering questions, so stop by and say hello to her: @Karen_Hooper

For more information on the different sea creatures or the Twitter contest, or to see who else is participating and what side they are on, go check out Karen's blog.

As for me, in the underwater war, I CHOOSE SIRENS.

I mean, come on. You know me. I'm Team Veela. And if ANYONE has a seductive singing voice, well, you know it isn't me. But ask anyone who has ever been to karaoke with me...I sure THINK I do. And sirens need warmth, just like this California girl. So you KNOW I would choose Sirens in this's a no-brainer.

If you have a chance today, go congratulate Karen on the release of her book, and pick a side in this underwater war!
