Miri Attwater - Book 1 on Wattpad and Book 2 progress

It's been a while since I made a new post, I know!

And have you signed up for my Newsletter? Because I've definitely made good on my promise not to fill up your inbox. :) I've sent exactly, um, zero newsletters so far.

It's not that I don't love my Newsletter subscribers! In fact there will be special offers soon, I promise. It's just that it's another thing with a learning curve. I spent a lot of time figuring out how to set up a sign up list. But how, exactly, do I send out a newsletter in the correct form? That's something I've got to figure out, and for now I've been trying to focus all my time on...

Completing Book 2!

(Okay, that and I may have snuck in a trip to Disney World. But hey, I was thinking of you and Miri! There are lots of mermaids at Disney. There'll be some related posts later.)

But yes, Miri Attwater and All that Glitters is starting the editing process!

Which means I already have some things that need some changes. :( But hang tight, Book 2 will be better for it, and ready soon!

Meanwhile, I've started posting Miri Attwater and the Ocean's Secret over on Wattpad. I post a chapter or so a week. So, if you haven't read the Ocean's Secret yet and you can be patient for the next installment, hop on over to Wattpad and say hello.

Happy Reading!


  1. I had never heard about Wattpad. I will have to check it out. So excited you got to take a trip to Disney!

  2. Wattpad is huge - and bewildering. I'm still working to figure it out. :) It seems to be mostly YA, and there isn't a children's books category, but it seems a great place to get some exposure so I decided to try it anyway. No matter how you publish, being "invisible" is that biggest challenge as a new author.

    Disney was loads of fun (and hot, so very hot!) Some of our favorite attractions were some of the historical information about Walt Disney - that man had such vision, and a great imagination!

  3. My granddaughter just finished the first Miri Atwater book, and is eager to read the next. She says, "please hurry!"

    1. I'm so happy to her she liked it! I've decided to change the covers with the release of book 2 and that's slowed me down more than I would like. But those early reader copies will go out soon. If your granddaughter would like one faster than waiting for the official release, you can contact me directly at esivy(at)phytapublishing(dot)com and I'll see that she gets one directly!
