Nerina Mermaid Book

Nerina: A Novel by Bianca

I’m beyond thrilled to share my first YA novel with you all. It is titled Nerina, and is a story of mermaid meets man. Sure, I can write up a novel, but words fail me when I have to describe the feeling of releasing your first book to the public. It is so exciting and scary and thrilling all at once. If you are a reader, I encourage you to pick up a physical copy off Amazon or to download it to your Kindle. I would love to hear your thoughts and feedback, as it will help as I endeavor into my next book. All of your support means the world to me – I cannot thank you enough! <3

Synopsis

A curious mermaid takes her chance to explore what is left of Skyland after an asteroid hits Earth, but she gets more than she bargained for.

Twenty-two-year-old Nerina befriends Luke and Mae, a twenty-three year-old boy who colors her world, and his thirteen-year-old sister. Nerina spends as much time as she can with her new friends, despite having only a few days before her legs turn back. Going back home to her family gets tough when her feelings for Luke are sparking like live wires. What’s even tougher? Not being able to return home safely after her family’s eerie past comes back to haunt her.

The Playlist

I’m sure you know by now that playlists are a big part of my life. I pretty much have a playlist for everything.

That being said, music played a huge part in the creating of this book. I don’t think I would have been able to get into the heads of Nerina or Luke if it wasn’t for my morning playlist. As I continued to write, I would add songs that I felt brought these characters to life, or told their story in some way, shape, or form. If you have read the book, you will surely find the connection in these lyrics and sounds. Enjoy!
