My book, The Little Mermaid Commemorative Edition, just got published as an e-book through Amazon Kindle. It is a modern English translation of the classic fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen, and commemorates the 100 Year Anniversary of the famous bronze mermaid statue of The Little Mermaid, which was unveiled in August of 1913 at […]
Here is another news story – to some degree a follow-on to Brenda Peterson’s article from two days ago – about the trend of mermaids increasing for young adult readers, and vampires vaning in popularity.

Here’s a cool article about law enforcement officers and a mermaid helping safeguard manatees. Trina Mason of Lake Worth volunteered her services to help increase awareness, and helped the almost 50 law enforcement officers educating boaters on protection of manatees.
