Drowning Sandy by Sarah Daley from the Summer Hearts Anthology ~*~*~*~ Blog Tour, Review & Giveaway


Today we are going to focus on the next book in the compilation. 
Check it out!

Drowning Sandy:
The water is calling...
and Sandy can no longer resist the urge to unleash her mermaid form. But a simple swim in Lake Ontario ends when she discovers the truth of her own banishment. When long time crush, Alardo, seems to shift in a direction she never dreamed possible, Sandy must make a choice — mermaid or human? Once she chooses, she can never go back. 

Sandy rolled her eyes. He talked tough and proud, but she could still see the self-doubt under the surface. He was still the same old dork, and still pining for Shelly who never gave a flip for him. “Aren’t you going to get in trouble for talking to me?” she asked, remembering why she was hiding in her grandparents’ house again.
“I’m a Ritno. I dare them.” He puffed out his chest, making the dark green band stretch to it’s max, though he did quickly look off to the side to check that no one was around. “By the way. What are you doing here?”

Now about the crazy lady behind this book!

Sarah Daley
  Sarah lives in Arizona with her best friend and husband, Chris, their adorable monster child, and neurotic dog.
At the age of six, she became a reading machine. Devouring everything she could possibly get her hands on. In high school she almost failed English three times because of her detest for writing book reports. Today, Sarah writes whatever stories haunt her dreams, and struggles to focus on one idea at a time. When she isn’t enjoying time with her family, or writing, you will find her nose stuck in a book, or out walking and enjoying the sunshine.
Drowning Sandy is her debut novella!

Main character casting

Sandy Antori: Spunky, and yet quick to want to please others, she finds herself battling her inner wants and desires with the difficult decisions being an adult requires of her. Picking an actress to play Sandy is tough. When I wrote this book, I actually envisioned her looking like a friend of mine’s sister. The next best second would have to be Shailene Woodley. Since, Shelly is Sandy’s twin, Shailene would have her work cut out for her not only being a mermaid, but being a twin too!

Alardo Ritno: Not one to be pushed around either, poor Alardo has been nursing his secret crush for Sandy from when they were kids just learning to swim. Little does he know that, Sandy had jumped to the conclusion that he was completely hung up on her twin, Shelly. Jensen Ackles is PERFECT!!! Just needs the short cropped hair, and copper and gold scales… YUM!
