Ready to make a splash on social media? Become a cheerleader/hype-person for Pacific Tails!

Pacific Tails Information

Genre: New adult urban fantasy

Sub genre: Mystery, adventure, romance

Tropes: Dual PoV, Found Family, Friends to Lovers, Mythology & Lore, Epic Quest, Whodunit, Chosen/Fated One

Content Warnings: There is some low-level spice, well, by my standards, nothing explicit, but this is not a fade to black. Think teetering on the edge between PG-13 and R. Some fancy words: Murder, assault, harsh language, depression, PTSD, bullying, sexual situations, very light LGBTQA+ representation, demons and possession, and reincarnation.

Release Date: October 23, 2023


An unsolved murder of a mermaid queen.

A shattered stone pendant cursed and lost.

A kingdom’s existence in peril.

All of it, dependent on a college student and gifted swimmer, Zoe Vaughn, who thinks her life is falling apart. 

Jealous teammates have accused Zoe of using performance enhancing drugs, sinking her dreams of competing in the Olympics. Now, as their relentless bullying continues, she’s ready to uproot her life in California and move across the country.


But hours before Zoe’s flight, something happens that changes those plans forever. Sparks literally fly between her and Baxter, her mythology professor, who confronts Zoe with the truth that her incredible talent beneath the water has a supernatural explanation.


Baxter declares that Zoe is the living reincarnation of Melantha - Mermaid Queen of the Pacific Ocean - who was betrayed and murdered nearly a century earlier. He also claims to be Melantha’s guardian - an immortal tasked with reuniting five sacred stones that can restore Zoe as the rightful queen before her kingdom is lost forever. 


But the time to do that is running out, as there are sinister forces who'll stop at nothing to prevent the Mermaid Queen's return. With her life on the line, Zoe must work with Baxter to find all five stones scattered between land and sea and fulfill her destiny - or condemn her mermaid kin to enslavement for all eternity.


Street Team Expectations

What to expect as if you are selected as a Tail for the Kingdom. (Merfolk are called Tails)


*An email will go out 1-2 weeks before the release date, with more detailed information. 


*PR box will be shipped to you. (Must be in the contiguous United States due to shipping costs) In exchange, Kingdom members will post on social media content such as an unboxing, reviews, hype/cheering, and will also post reviews on Amazon, Goodreads, and Barnes & Noble. I may even send you an extra copy or merch to do a give-away. 


*PR Box Perks: (SOME)

  • Signed and personalized Paperback copy

  • Handmade bookmark

  • Book art inlay (art created by Michelle Sauer)

  • and more!!! It's a surprise!


*Pacific Tails is a new adult fantasy adventure with some romance sprinkled throughout. This is an urban fantasy, meaning it is mostly set in the real-world with fantastical elements (because even though I believe mermaids are real, most people say they aren't, so, obviously, the mermaid realm is part of the fantasy aspect) 

(The boring, but important, terms and conditions)


*As an active participant, I am agreeing to volunteer my time to read and actively hype-up Pacific Tails, before, during, and after the release date. 


*Take part in Release Day Posts/Activities. 


*I will tag the author in all posts I complete. @michellesauerwrites (Insta, Tiktok, Youtube, Threads) 


*I am asked to post an honest review/rating at Amazon, Goodreads, and Barnes & Noble, but a review is not required. (If you have time to post on other sites, I would appreciate it, and so would algorithms.) 


*I will be emailed pre-made Pacific Tails graphics to share.


*Applying does not guarantee a spot on the team. It is very limited, as I only have so many number of books/PR boxes to give out, but I do encourage you to still apply, as I may be able to get more PR items than expected. 


*Being on the street team for a future book is not guaranteed. 


*Submitting the form is agreeing for me to email you with promotional and newsletters (once a month, maximum and you may unsubscribe at any time)


*If I am chosen, and decide to op-out of the Street Team, I know it's ok, but  I need to communicate this BEFORE a PR box is sent to me.


*An email asking for a link to your reviews and permission to use snippets for marketing material. (Optional)  


*If selected, another, a more detailed email will be sent to me asking for my confirmation to be on the team. I will respond in a timely manner.
