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.
I can only call this last week’s theme miscellaneous–or maybe mixed media!
I have a poem for you today, “The Selkie Wife’s Daughter” by Jeannie Hall Gailey, published on The Endicott Studio’s website. Founded in 1987, The Endicott Studio is a nonprofit organization dedicated to literary, visual, and performance arts inspired by myth, folklore, fairy tales, and the oral storytelling tradition. It’s easy to lose an afternoon in the archives of fiction, poetry, and other art, not to mention the decade’s worth of articles from The Journal of Mythic Arts, if you’re of an academic bent. Fantasy fans will recognize many of the author names–Jane Yolen, Neil Gaiman, Terri Windling, Delia Sherman and Midori Snyder, to name a few.
