Mermaid Discussion Post

As requested, here is your more-or-less official discussion thread for The Mermaid’s Madness [Amazon | Mysterious Galaxy].

Because my blog mirrors to different places, I’d suggest going either to LiveJournal or http://www.jimchines.com/2009/10/mermaid-discussion-post/ for the liveliest discussion.

Spoilers ahoy, obviously.

If you haven’t read the book and don’t want to know what happens, stay the heck out of the comments.  Otherwise, all discussion, speculation, and questions* are welcome.


*I might even answer some of ‘em!

Danielle seems to be jealous of the time that Snow and Talia have had with Bea. Now that Bea has admitted that she knows she is dying, is she going to spend more time with Danielle to train her(D) to take her(B's) place? Bea isn't going to die before the end of book 4, is she?

Everyone BUT Snow seems to know that Talia loves her - until someone flat-out TELLS Snow, that is. Heart-to-heart talk coming up?

Does Red hail from any of the countries already mentioned in the first two books? If so, which.

Red is from Morova, unless something changes in my final revision. It's not mentioned in the first books, but you can see it on the map.

I think the ending does suggest Beatrice is going to be spending more time working with Danielle, but I'm not going to answer that other question :-)

What do *you* think Snow would do when faced with this sort of revelation?

Hey, hey! If you're going to ask your readers to write your stories for you, boy, do I have some ideas... :)

I think that I need to think about it.

Please, could you stop by the art show again - since I'm in charge, I don't get out of there very much.

I'll try. Don't know that I'll be up for doing the auction again this year, but I'll do my best to stop in and visit!

I have auctioneers lined up, so you are off the hook there, but I have this new book with no author signature in it...

Snow's going to be Snow about it ... up-front and out-loud.

At least, once she comes to terms with it in her own mind.

I hope she doesn't tease Talia too much before she has the heart-to-heart.

But, with this idea in mind that EVERYBODY knows Talia's into Snow ... it has me wondering ... in the next book will Red use that as a weapon against Talia? Kidnapping a powerful (if ditzy) sorceress can't be an easy proposition ...

I've gotta admit, I'm going to miss Queen Bea.
