Book Blitz: Falling in Deep Collection

I will take a moment to add my bit. I first heard of this collection from an author I follow--Pauline Creeden. I love mermaid stories, so I was super excited to hear about the one she was writing. I bought it as soon as it was published and read it not long after. I was, in fact, joyous to hear I could join the book blitz for the entire collection. Now, for your reading pleasure, I present info about the collection and an excerpt from the very novella that began the collection, Scales, by Pauline Creeden.

Excerpt


Title: Scales
Author: Pauline Creeden

TO KEEP FROM SCREAMING, I bite hard on my lip. The copper mixture of blood and saltwater mingles on my tongue. Mer claws rake against my back. The barnacles on the post to which I’m tied stab me in the chest. Pain sets my body on fire. Everything burns. I squeeze my eyes shut tight and keep my silence.

“Ugly.”

“Repugnant.”

“Unsightly.”

“Ignorant.”

“Bottom Feeder.”

Each word cuts as deep in my flesh as the physical wounds my clan inflicts. It can’t last long. I can endure this. As soon as the sharks catch scent of my blood they will come, and the Mer will scatter.
The world spins around me like a whirlpool. My breaths come quick and shallow, my heart pounds faster in my ears. Each second is an eternity, until I realize fresh wounds are not adding to the burning in my skin.

The elder’s sharp tongue whispers in my ear. “Now you will be measured.”

My wrists fall free of the post as he cuts the ties.

Exile. My Reckoning has begun.
