Fourth selkie song: Ballad of the White Seal Maid

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. 

Lui Collins album coverWe’re back to heartache and seal wives today. Ballad of the White Seal Maiden is actually a poem by Jane Yolen (who has written so many things I won’t even bother trying to start telling you), performed by Lui Collins. You can read the lyrics (is it still lyrics if it started life as a poem?) at Lui Collin’s website, or listen to a sample on or Itunes. Lui Collin’s albums are also on CD Baby. It’s been a while since I ordered an actual, physical CD from them, but they used to have the best shipping notice email in the world.

The poem’s also included in its original form as a spoken-word poem on a CD collection of Jane Yolen’s poems.
