4.0 out of 5 stars A well-told tale with humor and a twist August 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This simple but well-told and humorous ten minute long tale is about a woman who fishes dead bodies from the Pacific Ocean. One early morning she sees an unusual event in the water that she can't tell anyone about because no one would believe her; so she has to lie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short but twisty May 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
A neat little short story with a great twist. Brooks's writing is straightforward and easy to read and can be relied upon for interesting, original ideas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fast read! September 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really like where Liana is going with this... I want her to write more stories with these characters. Anyway it's a great quick read (I read this last night on the couch while my daughters were watching a Psych episode). Anyway thanks for writing this and sharing it for free with us! I like your work and look forward to more of it. Thanks!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good one November 26, 2012

I liked this. I don't think the protagonist could do much more than she did. She didn't want to end up in an asylum or be the butt of questions about her sanity. This is just a review on the plot.

By Rick B.

Pulled me right in and kept me right there! My 15 year old daughter loves mermaids. She will really enjoy reading this and I'm excited for her to see such a strong, confident female character. Great short story. Totally left me wanting more!

Too short but great story. Kept me entertained for a whole 4 minutes! Very easy to become engaged with, but it ended too quickly.

1.0 out of 5 stars This was not a book, it was less than a chapter
It should be called a sample chapter. There was no reference to the rest of the book. What was written was interesting. Would like to see the rest of the story.

More About the Author

Liana Brooks once read the book GOOD OMENS by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett and noted that both their biographies invited readers to send money (or banana daiquiris). That seems to have worked well for them. Liana prefers strawberry daiquiris (virgin!) and will never say no to large amounts of cash in unmarked bills.

Her books are sweet and humorous with just enough edge to keep you reading past your bedtime.

Liana was born in San Diego and in addition to there has lived in Illinois, Colorado, Florida, Texas, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, and Kansas. We'd like to tell you where she is right now, but last we checked she was researching books on both Alaska and Africa.

Not only is the Amazon algorithm breaking trying to track this lady, but we can't tell you where to mail that daiquiri. Your best bet is to try Twitter where you can often find @LianaBrooks talking about her four kids, her giant dog, and plans for world domination.
