Manatees of Love

You’re looking at that picture, going, “Love? Really? Them? I don’t get it.”

Bear with me.

Manatees, for those of you who don’t know, are mammals that live in the ocean but do, on occasion, venture into fresh water rivers and inlets. Many coastal states of the southeast have speed and propeller directives on their waterways to prevent injuries to manatees. Sadly, many injuries still occur.

But what does this have to do with love?

Here you go: manatees, believe it or not, are the original mermaids. You gotta wonder what those sailors were drinking or how long they’d been at sea to consider these sea cows (and, no, I’m not being harsh – they actually are classified as ungulates, the same as Jersey and Herefords and all the rest and are actually called sea cows) sexy.

Now, from mermaids, we get other mermaids and, of course, everyone knows to make new mermaids, you need mermen. You see where this is going, don’t you?

November is also Manatee Awareness Month and author Rowena Cherry is having a chat on her radio podcast this Sunday night, November 9 from 9-11 eastern time with several authors (moi included) about manatees and, of course, our books. The chat is A Cherry Picking Special – Manatees and Mermaids

I’d love for you to “stop” by – listeners can call in and chat with us. Here’s the info you need and I encourage you to stop by the site now, and take a look at the slideshow of our book titles.

Around 9:45 we’re supposed to get to my book, In Over Her Head, specifically and one of the questions is if it’s won any awards, so I’ll be talking about the First Chapters Romance Contest.

Thanks and hope to talk to you on air!
