Mermaids magazine — finally!

18 Nov

So Mermaids is finally coming out, and I’m really excited. It’ll be a special issue of Faerie Magazine, put together and edited by yours truly, featuring our favorite half-ladies half-fish in all their manifold glories. It’s shipping from the printer on December 5. Look:


A small team of us have been working and working to get everything shiny and perfect. And there’s all kinds of amazing content: beautiful original fiction and poetry from writers like Alice Hoffman, Aimee Bender, Keith Donohue, Francesca Lia Block, Matthea Harvey, Tera Lynn Childs, Sarah Porter… Articles on everything from Mami Wata to Superman’s mermaid girlfriend to cover model Hannah Fraser and tail maker Eric Ducharme and ocean conservation… Not to mention a bunch of featured mermaids and glamorous destinations and photography so vivid you’ll start to hear the crash of ocean waves and the flip of shimmering tails moving through water.

Here is a little sneak peek. And you can order the magazine right now from the Faerie Magazine website.

    Welcome back! I’ve been missing my “I Am a Mermaid” e-mails. Love the ‘look’ of the magazine & hoping I can afford it…lol. We met briefly at MerPalooza in Tampa this year. It was my 1st time attending & hoping it won’t be my last.

    P.S. Hoping that we’ll be able to host MerPalooza at some point in the future. We have the most beautiful sugar white sand beaches & are known as the ‘Emerald Coast’ which describes the color of the Gulf of Mexico here in paradise.

      Yes, they were sent two weeks ago! But through media mail, so they’re taking a while, unfortunately — but you should receive them yours any day. Hopefully today! Please email me directly Virginia with your address so I can doublecheck on yours! (
