To celebrate the release of my new book, Coral Were His Bones, I’m going to be posting a month’s worth of things about selkies. Coral is a m/m paranormal erotica novel about Finn, a selkie who’s in love with his childhood sweetheart Devon, but bound in a magical contract to a cruel master. It’s a story of modern magic, snark, sex, and how to heal when everything hurts.
Today’s selkie song is The Maiden and the Selkie by fellow Canadian Heather Dale, which is happier than a lot of selkie stories. Pretty song, too! You can also preview it over on last.fm or Itunes.
Heather Dale’s also given a TED Talk on how to find a tribe that loves your art, a topic near and dear to my heart. (I’ve talked about my love for Vi Hart’s They Became What They Beheld video before.)
I’m doing my best to link to artist websites and legitimate places to preview and buy songs as I’m doing these music posts–but I think this is one musician who wouldn’t mind too much if you went hunting for fan works of her songs, since she has a whole selection of fan works created from one of her other songs, Mordred’s Lullaby, from the video section on her website. And yes, at least one of those is a fanvid for the BBC series Merlin.
