"Rescue Sirens" Head-to-Tail MERmakeover Giveaway! May 1, 2017 00:00

From Jess: 

It's Mer-May again! Man, how time flies. This time two years ago, we were preparing to print "Rescue Sirens: The Search for the Atavist" in hardcover; last year, we ran our first Instagram giveaway and, over the course of the month, awarded five people a "Rescue Sirens" prize package. This year, we're doing another Instagram giveaway: the "Rescue Sirens" Head-to-Tail MERmakeover!

In addition to a paperback copy of "Rescue Sirens: The Search for the Atavist" and a "Rescue Sirens" logo T-shirt, we'll be sending one lucky mermaid (or merman!) a collection of items from half a dozen fin-omenal companies, carefully curated by yours truly. These are duplicates of products that I own and use myself, purchased at full price because I want to continue supporting these businesses (so I put my money where my mouth is!).

There's a mermaid scales snapback cap from Paddleboarder.com; a "Mermaid is Life" decal (for your laptop, tablet, or car) as well as a "Mermaid" lapel pin from Sincerely Sweet Boutiquea "Mermaid" necklace and seashell eye mask from Seatail; one of two marine debris awareness bracelets from Planet Love Life; any one pair of leggings from Finfolk Productions (subject to size and design availability -- my blue Mermaid By Land leggings are pictured in the above image); and your choice of one nail polish (out of three available shades) from ILNP.

Is this your mermaid dream come true? Here's everything you need to know to enter for your chance to win this treasure trove of merchandise!

On Instagram:

1. FOLLOW US @rescuesirens
2. REPOST the first image (the one showing all the items available in the giveaway)
3. MENTION US @rescuesirens in your caption (or tag the photo)
4. TAG A FRIEND and enter twice!
5. HASHTAG #rescuesirensMERmakeover

The fine print: you must have a United States mailing address (or a friend who has one) so we can ship the prize pack to you if you win. The T-shirt and leggings will be ordered only AFTER you let us know your preferred size (and, in the case of the leggings, the design you'd like, viewable on Finfolk's website), and you must allow us time for those items to ship to us so we can then send them on to you. (This may be ten business days or more, depending on the companies supplying the apparel.) Your Instagram account must be public so we can see your entry. The "Rescue Sirens" Head-to-Tail MERmakeover Giveaway is not affiliated with or endorsed by Instagram in any way, shape, or form. Winner will be selected at random and announced on Monday, May 15th, 2017.

Good luck, everyone, and thanks for continuing to help us get "Rescue Sirens" out there on social media! Your support means the world to us.
