Top 5 vacation spots for mermaids: A Spalsh into Summer event kickoff

Splash into Summer
 
 
I love the summer for many reasons, and the Splash into Summer event ranks very high on that list! I am super excited to be a part of this event for the third year. Splash into Summer is hosted by Bonnie at A Backwards Story and Angel at A Mermaid Vision Books.  
 
 
Angel is highlighting mermaids in Asia today on her blog. Yours truly is guest posting at A Backwards Story today. Since summer time is all about vacations, my post spotlights the top 5 vacation spots for mermaids (or mermaid wannabes). Some may surprise you...
 
 
For instance, you may not think of the frigid waters off the coast of Alaska as a high-ranking vacation spot for the merfolk, but it is. In fact, several books have featured that setting. For instance, the mermaid army in Sarah Porter's Waking Storms hide out in Alaska before moving down the coast. Then there is the latest Emily Windsnap book (Emily Windsnap and the Land of the Midnight Sun) which features Alaska as the setting. What other proof do you need?
 
Maybe you prefer warmer temperatures for your vacations. Don't worry! I've got you covered. Just hop over to A Backwards Story to see the top 5 warm weather hot spots for anyone with flip flops or fins.

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 


This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather. 

Book Blitz: Visions by Lisa Amowitz

Vision by Lisa Amowitz Release Date: 09/09/14 Spencer Hill Press
Summary from Goodreads: The light is darker than you think…

High school student Bobby Pendell already has his hands full—he works almost every night to support his disabled-vet father and gifted little brother. Then he meets the beautiful new girl in town, who just happens to be his boss’s daughter. Bobby has rules about that kind of thing. Nothing matters more than keeping his job.

When Bobby starts to get blinding migraines that come with scary, violent hallucinations, his livelihood is on the line. Soon, he must face the stunning possibility that the visions of murder are actually real. With his world going dark, Bobby is set on the trail of the serial killer terrorizing his small town. With everyone else convinced he’s the prime suspect, Bobby realizes that he, or the girl he loves, might be killer's next victim.

Armchair BEA 2012 Introductions (day 1)

First, let me start off by saying that I am very excited to be participating in Armchair BEA this year. Since this is the first day of the weeklong event, here are my answers to the interview questions:

Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
Well, the answer the first part of that question, I am a middle school Language Arts teacher in Florida (and probably one of the only people in a coastal city that hates the beach). I’ve been married to my hubby for 10 years and have 2 boys. My house is a constant zoo and I’m turning 30 in a few months. There is a mid-life crisis in my near future, I’m sure, but I wouldn’t trade any of it for the world.
I started blogging in December of 2011 out of necessity. Seriously. My students know how easily I am distracted when they ask me about books (I eventually caught on to their tactics), so I started blogging out of a need for more teaching time. (I should go ahead and mention that I never talked books all day—even…
