Mer-May giveaway on Instagram May 1, 2016 00:00

From Jess: 

To celebrate "Mer-May," we'll be giving away a hardcover first edition copy of "Rescue Sirens: The Search for the Atavist," signed and personalized, every Mermaid Monday in May!

Last year, we desperately wanted to observe Mer-May -- but "Rescue Sirens: The Search for the Atavist" was still being prepped to go to print in May of 2015, so we chose to keep everything under wraps until we knew the books would be done in time for San Diego Comic-Con. We were so close, yet so far! It was hard to let the month go by without saying a word about our new mermaid book series.

But this year, we can fin-ally celebrate the mermaid-iest time of the year, and we're doing so with a month-long giveaway!

The giveaway will take place on Instagram. Here's how to enter:

  1. Follow @rescuesirens on Instagram.
  2. Every Monday, we'll post a different image -- repost that image with the hashtag #rescuesirensbook and tag @rescuesirens. Your account has to be public so we can see it! Sorry, giveaway accounts aren't eligible to win.
  3. Tell us your favorite Rescue Siren. In your image caption, share your favorite Rescue Siren and why she's your number one. Is it heroic Nim, shy Kelby, fierce Echo, sweet Pippa, or cool Maris?
  4. Tag a friend and increase your chances! Think your friends might like "Rescue Sirens"? Tag your BFF (best fin forever) in your image repost and have your username entered into the drawing twice.

The fine print: you must have a United States mailing address (or a friend who has one) so we can send you the book if you win. This giveaway is not affiliated with or endorsed by Instagram in any way.

If you don't win one week, you can always enter the following week; simply repost that week's new image and follow the instructions as before. There are five Mondays in May, so you'll have five chances to get your hands on a hardcover copy of the book!

Good luck, buoys and gills!
