For all the crazy mixed up politics going on, and the horrendous flooding happening throughout the world, life goes on and America still celebrates Labor Day.
Curious as to what, exactly is labor day, Wikipedia explains it as thus:
Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.
A holiday which honors the American people. The date also marks the close of summer, the last exodus to camping areas, and a three day weekend before school starts (though I have word some schools started before Labor Day). The date also marks a turn of the seasons.
In tribute to summer, I'm offering my ebook Pouraka for the price of .99 on my website. For those not familiar with Pouraka (pronounced por-ra-ka), the story celebrates the ocean, dolphins, and all sea life in an urban fantasy setting.
Winner of Imjadinn Award for Best Urban Fantasy 2016 at the Imaginarium Convention in Louisville KY. Pouraka is a magical sea cavern tucked under the rocky cliffs near a rural seaside town called Barnacle Bay. Cora, a Pouraka mermaid, is comfortable changing into human form to visit her friends on shore. But when a foreign clan of merpeople ask for help, Cora's world changed. Among the strangers is a handsome and passionate merman, Tas, whom she quickly falls in love with. The foreign clan fled their homeland in search of another cavern when men invaded their waters. Trouble follows them when an unscrupulous oil rigger's son discovers the rich aquatic life Barnacle Bay harbors. Mermaids, instead of dolphins, become his prey.
The man's quest to capture and sell a mermaid or two to a marine amusement park proves perilous for both Cora and Tas, and their families. Both clans must fight for their lives, and all sea life that call Pouraka home.
