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 a bit of a stretch, but bear with me… Airing on Showcase in Canada and SyFy in the States, Lost Girl is a series about a succubus, not a selkie, but there is a selkie episode in the second season. There’s a lot to like about the series. Bo, the main character, is a succubus raised by humans who is just now discovering the world her mother came from, and her own powers, running around with her human bestie and solving supernatural crimes.
Bisexual character where her bisexuality isn’t a thing she agonizes over! Girls kissing,! Sex-positive! Female friendships–this show definitely passes the Bechdel test, and best friend Kenzi is kick-ass and adorable. An awesome balance of cheesy and serious, with that balance of magic and mundane that I enjoy so very much! Need more convincing? Here are Ten Good Reasons To Watch Lost Girl from IO9
“Fae Gone Wild,” episode 2×07, mixes a fae strip club with selkie mythology. Even though it’s not one of my favourite episodes, it’s still fun.
