Hi everyone
I just wanted to tell you all about the first of the Merlicious trilogy now out at www.midnightshowcase.com (http://www.midnightshowcase.com). Merlicious 1 has six stories, six authors and flows with passion and underwater delight. I'm proud to share this digest with Megan Hussey, Mae Powers, Bridghid Parkinson, Leanne Strange and Emery La Rue. the best part is there are two more to come.
Here is a little excerpt from my light-hearted story called Plenty More Fish In The Sea

“Do you know who that is…?” Ceph asked his father as he peeked around the large rock at a mermaid he had never seen before.
His father took a long look and shook his head.
“Nope, no idea… There must be plenty of merfolk in Green Waters you haven’t met yet.”
But Ceph knew his father too well, and that tone meant, ‘I know, but I’m not telling you.’
“Dad…I know every single mermaid in Green Waters, and she isn’t one of them. If you don’t tell me, I’m going to ask her myself.”
“No…don’t. I don’t know who she is. I only know who she belongs to, and that is enough.”
“Oh, she has a mate. I can see why.”
“I don’t mean a mate. I mean her father. See the double fins at the end of her tail. Only one man can pass that on. Trust me, you do not
want to go there. Her father has been a rival of my kingdom since I was a youth.”
“Really? Why?” Ceph was now very curious and completely taken by the blue-green tailed female.
“Because he is a stubborn idiot. They are different from us. Thatis all.”
“But we are all merfolk. Did he kill someone or something?”
Ceph hadn’t taken his eyes off her. None of the females he knew captured his interest this way.
“Ceph…forget you saw her. There are plenty more fish in the sea,” his father stated.
“Maybe, but not with her looks, and that is the finest tail I’ve ever seen.”
“Son, she is out of bounds. We can’t get along with them. Not ever.”
Ceph knew there was more his father wasn’t telling him. “Why not, Dad…what is so terrible about being friends? You better tell me,
or I’ll go ask Mom.” His father turned positively pale.
“Please, son, don’t mention one word of this to your mother. I’ll be out in the cold current if you do.”
“Better start talking then.”

:whoohoo: More merfolk books! I love stories that have to do with them. The first good book with a mermaid as the main character was MaryJanice Davidson's Sleeping With the Fishes. It was a great book and I'm looking forward to her next mermaid book. Now that I've read this I know there are other books out there about merfolk. Thank you for posting this! I'm excited to find this book now.

My very first published short story is a merman story, Sealover, is available at at Phaze.com you can go here to take a look (http://www.king-cart.com/cgi-bin/cart.cgi?store=Phaze&product=Sea+Lover+by+Anna+Fallon)
We love writing about merfolk.
I may be biased but the merlicious digests are all outstanding stories. Plenty More Fish In The Sea is a story full of giggles and awwwws. It hints at a story much more intricate which may be in the future.

Cool Anna, thanks so much!! I have always loved merfolk and I think it started with the fairytail The Little Mermaid. It's great to see new stories.:notworthy:

These look really good Anna, there haven't been all that many books with merpeople so I'm happy to see some new stories! ;-)

I've always thought the same way Regina. There are never enough merpeople books.
