                                                                               Dream of the Blue TurtleDear Friends, If you want to say hi to me face to face virtually,  ask your teacher or guardian to sign up up for the Lousiville Book Festival. It's free and you only need to sign up so they can put you with the right author. I will be there today and tomorrow from 10-6 Eastern time.

     Ella, I lived in California years ago, but I lived near San Francisco. Stay safe, Debbie

Dear Ella, I'm so glad you like the illustrations. The The Polar Bear ExpressMermaid Tales are illustrated by Tatevik Avakyan. I really like the way she draws! She lives in California and I've never met her. My publisher selected her and I'm glad they did. The first two Mini Mermaid Tales books are written, so I was thinking about Aqua as the main character in the third book, which would come out in fall of 2022. Isn't it strange how long it takes for a book to come out? Best, Debbie

Sleepover at the Haunted MuseumDear Ella, The first Mini Mermaid Tales book won't come out until 2022! The next Mermaid Tales book will come out next June. Is is called Sleepover at the Haunted Museum! Here is a sneak peek at what it is about. Mermaid Tales book #22 will come out in 2022. As with all book series, a book #23 will depend on sales. I'm hopeful I'll get to write #23, but I am not sure. That is why I suggested Aqua might work well in the Mini Mermaid Tales series. There will be eight of them. Rocky is the cousin of one of the main characters. Wanda is the sister of another one. Stay safe and have fun writing, Debbie

Dear Ella, I hope you have fun writing mermaid stories. I really enjoy writing them myself! Have you A Whale of a Talelooked at my writing page? I have never officially said what country Kiki is from since she doesn't live on land, but she is from the waters around China and North and South Korea. Best, Debbie

The Narwhal ProblemDear Ella, I love the name Aqua Wave! It is a lot of fun. Do you have a favorite Mermaid Tales book about Kiki? Of course, I'd love to see some of your ideas. I answered the email, but it was returned so here is my answer: Thanks for the awesome picture.  I am making a new Mini Mermaid Tales series. What would you think about me naming one of the characters Aqua Wave? Would you like me to use your picture in a MerStyle magazine? We could use it as a style tip-maybe bracelets are the thing to wear right now? If you like that idea, I'd need your parent or guardian's permission to use your picture of Aqua in MerStyle Magazine #7-just an email saying I give my permission for Ella's picture to be used in MerStyle Magazine #7. I will only use your first name for Internet safety. Thanks so much for being a sea-fan! Stay safe and wear a mask. God bless, Debbie
