My Dearest Readers!
Finally the time has come for me to announce that Mermaids and the Vampires Who Love Them is going to be an audiobook published by Hachette (under my real name, Debra Goelz)! Because you are my loyal readers, I wanted you to be the first to know! You can preorder right now on Audible, and it will be available for your listening pleasure on October 17th!
But why wait? There is a 20 minute sample you can hear right now over at BandCamp! Here's the link: https://wattpad.bandcamp.com/album/mermaids-and-the-vampires-who-love-them

I am beyond excited and couldn't wait to share the news with you.
The published version has the same basic elements as what you've read on Wattpad. Waverly, Pierce, Pickles, Fintan, Lily-Bella, Thunder, Shelly, Beau, and most importantly, Cupid, are all there! Darkins is still the bad guy, polluting the bay and being an incredible jerk.
But the audiobook version is MORE!
MORE exciting! MORE romantic! MORE magical! It delves deeper into why Darkins behaves as he does, plus he is way more insidious and powerful. There are more sizzling scenes with Pierce and Waverly, some new characters (a castle-full of rodents), and new magic (golems people!).
The book is narrated by actress Cassandra Morris. She has narrated over 200 audiobooks including Pretty Little Liars, Magic School Bus, and Gossip Girl. I was blown away by her voice and am thrilled she is reading Waverly's tale.
Here are a few new lines from the audiobook version:
