Mermaids are everywhere in the media right now—and next weekend they’re coming to Las Vegas in droves for MerCon and the World Mermaid Awards (August 12-13th). And to celebrate, Barnes and Noble will be hosting a fabulous mermaid signing and mermaid ball, with guests including the world’s foremost mermaid Hannah Fraser—who’s coming in straight from swimming with sharks in the wild!—Weeki Wachee mermaid Kylee Trochee, International Mermaid Pageant proprietor Stephanie Sims, World Mermaid Awards host Sita Lange, Aquatails owner Jerilyn Winstead, and many more shimmering mermaid guests!

Our fabulous mermaid authors include: Carolyn Turgeon, whose latest novel Mermaid was recently optioned by Sony Pictures, making it one of two little mermaid projects currently in development (Country Strong’s Shana Feste is set to write and direct); award-winning poet Matthea Harvey, who published her first mermaid poem in The New Yorker last summer, and has been writing about mermaids ever since; Tera Lynn Childs, award-winning author of teen mermaid tales Forgive My Fins and Fins Are Forever; award-winning novelist Timothy Schaffert, who published his first mermaid story, “Mermaid in the Tree,” in the fairytale anthology My Mother She Killed Me, My Father He Ate Me, last year; and Tempest Rising author Tracy Deebs.

Listen to mermaid readings, get your books signed, learn how to be a better mermaid… and come in mermaid garb and win prizes!
