Real Mermaids Don’t Wear Toe Rings is only about six weeks old but WOW! what a ride it has been so far.

Thanks, EVERYONE, for the reader e-mail, blog mentions, tweets, contests and reviews and for helping to spread the word about Jade–my chocolate-mug-cake-loving/reluctant mermaid.

Some of you have asked, “Will there be a sequel?!” and today, I can enthusiastically say NO! 

There will not be a sequel.

   There will be TWO!!!!!!!
