I am so excited to reveal the brand-spanking new cover for REAL MERMAIDS DON’T HOLD THEIR BREATH (Book #2 of the Real Mermaids series, available May/ 2012)!

How can you win a copy as soon as it rolls off the printing press in a couple of weeks?

EASY! Just comment here to be entered!

How can you have a SECOND chance of winning a copy of REAL MERMAIDS DON’T HOLD THEIR BREATH?

Send me a picture of you holding a stack of your favourite books like Jade is doing on the cover. Make sure it’s a picture you don’t mind me showing on this blog because I will post them all and let the public decide who came up with the most creative photo.

Here’s a REALLY bad example from me, showing off one of the Advance Review Copies with the old cover. I have very poor photoshopping skills but I am sure you can do better!

 FYI, I used www.picnik.com . Here is a MUCH better example from my friend Mitzi!

The first draw will take place March 15th. Meanwhile, send in your photos to helene@heleneboudreau.com for a second chance to win!
